Save Me
anj Dec 2018
Save me
From filling this void
Save me, I'm almost losing myself.

Save me
I think I want it to end.
Save me, save me from this world

Save me, cause I cannot save myself

Oceans
anj Oct 2017
If you would get to see my mind
You would see how hard I try
How hard I try to put different masks on everyday
Just to feel alright.

You would get to hear how i'm battling myself
How I plan my own death every night
And how hard it is for me to forget that there are people
People who love, and care for me.

You would get to feel, feel what I've been feeling
The sadness inside me, i'm slowly getting used to it
The battles inside me are endless
And you, you would die inside my mind

My mind is so deep, deep as the ocean
So many endless battles, between me and society
These oceans you can't swim
Because you care less
And even the people close to me
Can't notice these oceans inside me
So I wrote this poem randomly because I've been battling depression ever since I was a kid. The thought of me not being understood by the people that are close to me and the people that I love really breaks me the most. Also, I've tried so hard to make those people happy in many ways but the only thing they give back to me is more heartbreaking.  till now, I still suffer from it and this is a battle that the only winning solution is to feel the people who are suffering from this state to. Depression isn't just a word, it's more than that. I WILL not quit this battle. I will fight and I know I can.

Manila
anj Aug 2017
A land of false hopes and dreams
A land where nothing is at it seems
A place where people are blinded by the truth
A place where you get tricked
A place you'll be sick
A place where you are lost
A place where you are found
Welcome to this great city
A city that is hopeless
A city that will rise
A city where your heart sets ablaze
A place where you'll get amazed
A city where everything is bound to happen
A city where you seek your purpose
Manila, a city called Manila.
This poem is not to promote Manila. It is just to portray how I see mnl nowadays. No hate please, just a minor writer here :)

Pag-asa, tayo daw ang pag-asa
Kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan sabi nila
Pag-asa, pag-asa sa pagbabago
Pero nasaan ang pag-asa,
Kung mismo tayo'y nababalisa
Nababalisa sa paikot-ikot na problema.
Droga,patayan,droga,patayan droga
Paikot-ikot nalang nakakapagod na.
Laman ng balita'y paulit-ulit nalang
At ang mga buhay, mga inosenteng buhay
Ay nasasayang, paulit-ulit nalang.
Pag-asa, nasaan na ang pag-asa
Kung mismo ang ugali natin ay nagbago na.
Ang respeto sa lahat ay nababalewala,
Ang pagpapahalaga sa damdamin ng iba' nawawala na.
Pag-asa, nasaan ang pag-asa kung
Ang ating lipunan ay nagdudusa na?
Nasaan ang pangako ng pagbabago,
Eto ba ay nawala, naglaho o napako?
Mistulang lasing ang mga tao
Nagbubulagbulagan sa sinasabing pagbabago.
Pero nasaan ang pagbabago kung mismo tayo'y di natututo?
Na parang alak ang ating lipunan,
Sa una'y walang epekto, walang pakiramdam
Pero habang tumatagal ika'y mababaliw,
Matutuwa, malulungkot, samu't-saring emosyon.
Pero habang tumatagal ikaw ay mapapaisip
Kung para saan nga ba ito.
Itong paglaklak ng napapakong pangako.
Nasaan na angand nasabing pag-asa at pangako,
Kung tayo ay uhaw sa alak na walang pagbabago?
First of all this poem is related to my country, the Philippines. Just a way of voicing out my opinion. Somehow, us teenagers need to take a stand and be heard.

You
anj Oct 2016
You
The one that I've ever loved is you
The one i felt the most pain is you
You give me life
You give me inspiration
You gave me life
You is the one who killed me
You is the one who broke me
You is the reason why im still getting back up
Slight comeback lol

I Found
anj Dec 2015
I'll use you as a warning sign
That if you talk enough sense then you'll lose your mind
I'll use you as a focal point
So I don't lose sight of what I want
I've moved further than I thought I could
But I miss you more than I thought I would
I'll use you as a warning sign
That if you talk enough sense then you'll lose your mind

I found love where it wasn't supposed to be
Right in front of me
Talk some sense to me

I'll use you as a makeshift gauge
Of how much to give and how much to take
I'll use you as a warning sign
That if you talk enough sense then you'll lose your mind

I found love where it wasn't supposed to be
Right in front of me
Talk some sense to me
This is originally a song from amber run :) just added it up

Paasa sa umaasa
anj Dec 2015
Gagawa ako ng tula
Para sa inyong mga paasa
Sana inyong basahin
Para kayo'y matauhan at magbago rin!

Sisimulan ko sa simula,
Kung saan ichachat nyo kami at sasabihin 'hi'
At kami'y mag rereply ng 'hello'
At dun na kami aasa hanggang sa dulo.

Dederetso ako sa gitna
Kung saan yayaain nyo kami mag date
At sasabihin nyo pa na seryoso kayo
Pero yung pala'y labag sa kalooban nyo.

Eto na ang huli at alam kong di tatatak sa puso't isipan nyo.
Sana malaman nyo na sa ginagawa nyo maramjng umaasa at nasasaktan.
Dahil sa inyong labis na kahihitnan.
At aking sasabihin na sana matuto kayong masaktan at magmahal,
Dahil sinasabi ko sa inyo, di kayo banal!
Dedicated toh sa lahat ng lecheng paasa diyan!!

Stay
anj Dec 2015
Stay, stay.
Don't leave me astray.
Life became as dull as grey
When you left and walked away.

The moments are slowly fading
But here in my heart you are staying
As much as i want to forget you,
My heart still says i love you.

So wherever you are, please stay safe
Cause here in my heart you will stay.
These memories are hurting me
But i know someday i'll be smiling with glee.

Pangako
anj Dec 2015
Sinusulat ko ito para aking matandaan
Ang pangako na minsang sinundan
Ng sakit at tampo ng nakaraan
Pero hindi ito susundan ng sakit at kahihinatnan.

Minsan aking pinangako na magiging okay lang ako
Na lahat ng ito ay malalagpasan at makakalimutan rin
Pero lahat pala ito’y napako,
At napadaan lang sa daan na bako-bako.

Daan na bako-bako, parang tayo.
Di malaman kung san liliko, palagi nalang nakakalimutan at nahihilo,
Kung ang damdamin ay pareho. Umasa ang isa at nagpaka-tanga,
Sa pangako at pag-ibig kung san lahat ay nalito.

Pangako. Sinusulat ko ito para aking matandaan
Ang sakit na dinulot mo sa akin
Mas masakit pa kesa sa paluhudin sa bilao ng asin
At kalian man umasa na ikaw ay mapapa sakin.

Pangako, salitang palaging napapako.
Katulad ng tulang ito, parang pangako.
Paulit-ulit sinasabi, ngunit nalilito at napupunta sa daan na bako bako
Pero aking tutuparin, ang pangako na ito hangga’t sa kakayanin.
Pero hindi kita tutularin, na ginawa ang pangako na parang bang kasing nipis ng asin.

Masakit pa rin pala
anj Dec 2015
Masakit pa rin pala
Nang aking maalala
Ang unang araw kung san tayo'y nagkakakilala
At sinabi mo 'Ate dito ka ba?'

Sobrang sakit pa rin pala
Nang aking maalala
Ang mga salitang nabanggit mo na 'gusto kita'
Pero mas lalong masakit nang malaman ko na ikaw ay meron ng iba.

Ngunit ako si tanga at di sumuko
Dahila ako'y nangako na kakayanin ko
Kakayanin kong makita at matiis na meron kang iba
Habang ako, ito nagluluksa.

Masakit pa rin pala
Nang aking balikan itong mga matatamis na alaala
Na lahat ay nangyare na sa nakaraan,
At kailangan ng harapin ang kasalukuyan

Kasi hanggang ngayon, ang sakit sakit pa rin pala.
Dahil di ko matanggap na siya ang pinili mo at di ako
Pero pangako kakayinin ko,
Kasi mahal kita, at iyon lang ang masasabi ko.
Dedicated to gra :)
