My Poems

***The Poems Originally written by Me


Staring blankly on your lap
Tears of fury shedding in your weary beaten angelic face
A little creature almost drowned
Suddenly moving, bloodstained it has become
In its first few hours out

By product of your sufferings witnessed
By its innocent inquiring eyes
“Am I not to bring bliss to you?” thought the life on your lap
Slowly scratching its fragile skin against yours
A life indeed that warms you up

Blinded by the light the “life” is giving
You set your feet to the ground
Gradually regaining your weight
And setting your next footsteps
Suddenly there is LIFE

Now staring blankly out of nowhere
Unmoved by the crown of silver hair
You let yourself be overwhelmed
Held in the lap of the “life” you’d almost given up
Each other’s blurred gaze met
The sparer and the spared
The same inquiring eyes you once loathed
“At least you drained the lap that wanted me drowned”

*This was dedicated to my student who was then about to end his class with me.
Shining Jewel

A shining Jewel in my view
Blurred, Unclear & few
His voice is vivid
And makes my day placid

Smiling face I imagine
That really makes the class goin’
Endless laughs linger
And makes each day better

But today is inevitable
Goodbye I need to mumble
And never will it bring him on the “other line” again
Leaving me sad & barren

But I know he’ll always be
The “Jason” he used to be
Staying bright in the dark
Very visible like a trademark

Tanging Sandigan

Panu nga ba sisimulan
Hukayin ang aking kamalayan?
Upang matutong harapin mga dagok ng buhay
Sa istoryang tila walang humpay

San nga ba patungo mga munting anino
Na palaging nakasunod sa likuran ko?
Tila nag uudyok na ako’y bumitaw at sumuko
Pero kayak ko ‘to, yan ang alam ko
Dahil tanging ako lamang bida sa istoryang ito

Magpumilit man akong kumawala
Sa daloy ng buhay na di ako ang may gawa
Kitlin man ang buhay ng may sala
Bandang huli ako rin ang magagambala

Mas mabuti nang sa Diyos magtiwala
At sa kaaway’ magbigay pala
Tiyak kaligayahay’ makakamtan
Sa mundong ang alam lng ay ako’y

** This one is just sent to me…but it was then so short & there were no rhymes….I fixed it & here it is….

Fate was kind, and she did sendyou, to be my trusted friend,I’ll stand by you, until the end,because that’s what friends should do
A shoulder lent to catch your tears,your secrets kept, for countless years,protect you from your darkest fearsbecause that’s what friends should do.
I’ll stand by you, when times are grim,though I love you, and you love her,Chances we’d work out are slim.So I just made a happy “us” in my dream
I know I can be kind of slow,and lacking muscles head to toe,but I hope you want me so
Coz surely I’ll be taken out from this great sorrow
But if a friend is all you see,you’ll always have a friend in me,forever by your side I’ll be,because that’s what friends should be


Unlikely Unlike Them

***This Poem is published on our school paper

I’m as free as a soaring bird
Able to go places “never heard”
Hunting prey for survival
Wanting more than what’s usual

Brave was I according to them
Facing realities that overwhelm
My soul keeps fighting till the last drop
Never stops nor takes a nap

Strong as I might be seen
But also crying deep within
Coz I am also a human being
Who needs to shed a tear when hurting

Even I possess those good qualities
I don’t really want to be like this
I’d rather be weak & have my mother’s care
Than be really strong & endure His stare

Early bird they call me
It’s because I left early
And learned from life enormously
But still my heart remained empty

…I wish I could write some more…but I’ve been too busy….
>>>there are times that I’m trying & I have much time …but I lack inspiration<<<
