sometimes in life
it's those who are close to you that create strife
with words unkind
when someone's already messing up your mind
to think that they help
makes me yelp
but I no longer care
I'm tired of being there
I want to fly kites
for I'm sick of being nice
to watch them glide
and forget the tears I cried
a test of faith
reminds me this is more than the eighth
time that I swore
I can't take this anymore
ito na yung mga panahon
na masasabi kong
"hindi ko na alam."
kasi sa totoo lang,
hindi ko na talaga alam.
na magbabago ang tao
pero paglubog ng araw,
maririnig mo nalang ang iyong mga baho.
sa mga taong hindi binabalik ang iyong mga damdamin
sawang-sawa na ako
lumutang sa paghihingalo
pagod na ako
hapong-hapo, sa totoo.
yun na lamang ang alam ko.
I am a part of humanity
Waiting patiently for it to regain its sanity
That day may not come,
But my perspective is of some.
Madness made people hollow,
Pride became something you can't swallow.
Greed is in the air,
I've heard cries of despair.
Darkness filled the hearts of many,
Money as the one thing they want as plenty.
It's all for the fame,
They treat life like a game.
And there are those who stand
Holding hand in hand
Trying to remove the filth of this land
But some are just blown away like sand.
Corruption fills our lungs
Until we cannot sing songs
Of the things we want to see
Or of just wanting to be free.
I am a part of humanity
Trying to make us change
We can't stay the same
For destruction will surely come out way.
when will this end?
I see my morals bend
when is the day
where I can run away?
oh the pain of my soul
these cries I can't control
you remind me of a witch
who's trying to curse and call me a snitch
what have I done to you,
to make you want me to look so blue?
why are you trying so hard,
to do anything to rip my heart apart?
I stand on this battleground
waiting for the truth to be found
by those you've deceived
and on that day I'll become relieved
don't expect me to cry
no I am not a small-fry
I may not be tall
but those who get hurt can be the strongest of all
there are so many things I can't handle and I'm sick of... but not today, not today.
I'm so sick of you
and all the things you say and do
you think you know better than me
when you want my life to be a tragedy
how were you to feel
if you find out the friendships you have aren't real?
and say that they loathe you,
that you're in a group you never belonged to?
oh, what a bother,
go look for another
you think you sit on a throne
when you're just a silly dog barking at a lamp post
never think that it's you
everyone looks up to
but here's the reality
you'll never shatter me
but instead I'll bring into your life great insanity
I'm finally back of Hello Poetry! so here's a poem I wrote in class.
in this heat
I was in for a treat
to remember the reason why
in some dreams I cry
to think I actually knew
that this sorrow was overdue
you had a debt you couldn't pay
so maybe that's why you couldn't stay
here's the thing
that gives me suffering
I miss you
but you weren't true
you were a figment of my imagination
you were my mind's little creation
the fact you were unreal
made me stand still
who knew I was like this
that a fictional character, I would miss
I felt so dense to the feelings of others
to the fact that I treated them like brothers
my mind to yours was attached
to you I was completely latched
to you I have so few memories
I hope you haven't forgotten me
my dear imaginary friend,
I hope you remember me until my end
Bingbong from Inside Out totally got my tears streaming down my face. His last words still tear me up until now.
Without light there is no darkness
Without darkness there is no light
One cannot exist without the other
To balance our lives with one another
Maybe I am the light
And you are the dark
We need each other
Like sister and brother
But alas the time has come
You have found one more
Of your own kind
And have forgotten about me
They say light travels slower in water
And you have traveled farther
Down to the bottom of the sea
Where I can hardly even reach
You're now so far away
Where you can't see the day
Perhaps when I have found you
All I am is a refracted memory
maybe I don't understand
the things that are at hand
but what is your goal?
your personality's as black as coal
I felt it in my gut
that this whole thing was going to rot
you left me standing there
in a place I couldn't bear
but who am I to judge
we're not in a court of justice
I don't have a gavel to declare you guilty
to prove to others such false humility
maybe God is just testing my patience
making me remember all of His faithfulness
my sufferings are yet to end
but my scars remained for God to mend
Another poem, another feeling. Oh how I love letting these things out.
I wish you'd come back
And see the things that have changed
Just like the seasons
I honestly don't know what to say
maybe it's just me
who grew numb to the word "sorry"
which was repeatedly said to me
so many times it's lost its meaning
maybe it's just me
who's having a hard time to forgive
when my patience is broken
my feelings are shattered
it's weird that I don't know
I feel my eyes as they dampen
why do I let these things happen?
I have yet to find an answer
part of me says to stay away
how much does this hurt weigh?
so much pain in one day
but a meaningless sorry can't make it okay
Nowadays, we take advantage of the word"sorry", that it's left with no meaning at all.
what just happened here
you used to be so near
I thought you were my friend
but all you wanted was for me to end
how would I know
when you used sticks and stones
that never broke my bones
but you still wanted to hurt me
all you wanted was to fight
because you thought you were always right
seeing me standing tall
you wanted to make my self-esteem fall
but hey, it's okay
know that I don't really care
you proved yourself to me
that you really aren't worthy
If you know me in real life, don't assume who this is, please? Don't assume if you don't know.
thank you to science
That made me know why the sky is blue
But until now
I still don't know why i can't say
That i miss you
To be honest, I'm quite afraid
Maybe it's because I no longer see the light of day.
Who knew I've become so blind
With my mouth yet left to bind
We're all insensitive, they say
All that's left is for us to drown in a bay
Full of tears
Full of fears
I've been saying things I never wanted
All of them left me so haunted
But don't get me wrong
I let go of singing that hateful song
They say we're terminal
And it shows on the external
At the end of the day
We all have ugly things to say
We've stopped being beautiful
And turned ourselves dreadful
Up to the point where I can no longer appreciate
Up to the point where I want myself to asphyxiate
It hurts so bad
I feel like I'm turning mad
In this generation of negative things
All we feel is the plucking of our wings
My wings have been torn
Maybe ever since I've been born
For some reason why
Society doesn't want us to fly
Or maybe it's just us
Who holds ourselves back
We blame others
And think they keep us off track
In reality it's us
And it's all it ever was
What if we were made to soar
And not cry or let our blood drip on the floor
We're just too selfish to get the things that we want
No, you don't need to flaunt
And make others feel bad
Instead of happy, they're just sad
We're broken in pieces
Because we fell from the sky
Little did we know, our wings were growing for us to fly.
Here's to the people who feel what I feel, to those who think they can't soar.
— The End —
