Peace Within

I wake to sweetness

every single day.

I feel guilt as well

that these days,

I mirror more

the positive side of life;

that I’m not brought down 

by these thrusting issues

looming around me.

I’m mostly shocked 

that I smile, laugh 

dance and skip,

when I should shrink 

into my unpleasant shell

And groan till 

I groan no more.

And to think that I do 

not make much effort

to cage the impact 

of an awful mood

is a rare miracle.

It’s as if there’s nothing

At all to fuss about.

Now, they say

I’m the fairest of all.

Haha, how exact 

their words!

I’m at my best since 

manner began

 to proclaim so.

Feels like I walk around

defrauding them?

Guiding them

 to believe what

Isn’t real?

Should I wear dilemmas 

Like befitting apparel,

And walk the boulevards

As though I’m insane?

– To show off the details of me?

 I’m strong enough

 to impede 

those annihilating


And I’m blessed 

to be this way.

I’m blessed to have God.

Peace within.

What I loved

If what I loved vanished into the past
I'd turn the heavens upside down
In search of where the past rebounds
Even though I'd pay the cost of time

If I fell back into deep emptiness
I'd climb the slimy mount of hope
To where my subtle passions slope
Lest I drowned in the sea of void

If what I loved was here no more,
I'd fly to where the world began
And grieve as the mortal I am
For the thing that's hard to resist.

I'd feel the bitter pang of loss
But I'll never lose my world to it
And I'll never lose my being to bits.
Without my life nothing prevails.

Life is the reason I'm here still
Life is the reason I think of love
When I lose it to the love I lost
I've won nothing but double loss

I'd let go of what I loved
I came into the world alone
I came with nothing that I own
What I have is what life gives.
