It’s not
that I am
not interested
in boys
anymore

It’s just
that I
compare
every boy
that catches
my attention
to you

And they
don’t stand
even the
slightest chance

It's really hard to believe
The words coming out of your mouth
I do my best to justify you
But it doesn't seem to work this time
Not this time
All these constant lies
How many more chances do you need
Until you finally decide to change
Do you think I will fall for them again
I have before and I was a fool for doing so
But not anymore, I'm letting you go
Not this time
Today, I woke up with regrets,
but no, don’t get me wrong.
I never regret meeting you,
a hectic mid-afternoon at the field.
I never regret the days we spent,
your arms held us close.
I never regret holding your hand,
fingers intertwined at all.
I never regret the intimacy,
your touch leaves marks.
I never regret it, no.
But I do regret
holding on to chances, I thought I got something to look forward to.
I regret being certain, I assumed
this entire book could be written.
I regret giving myself
but has only left me torn asunder.
I regret letting this happen,
I should have been wiser.
I regret not holding enough.
I regret not doing enough.
I regret not being enough.
Today, I woke up with regrets,
but no, I’m not blaming you.
After all, there’s no one to blame to but my expectations.
You did nothing wrong, baby
It’s my fault,
I broke my own heart.

A bright idea illuminates your mind
"I'll do it when I get the time"
Is what you say when you defend
Your busy schedule of tasks you resent

Your tasty theoretical lemonade
Made from the lemons that came your way
Would quench your thirst for success
If you would only take a rest

Is it healthy for you to be stuck
In the 9 to 5 generational curse?
Working hard to make a living
When that living can be unforgiving

Nothing's too hard or impossible
Baby steps, no need to stress
When to you the path is visible
You just need to do your best

The fear you harbor in your heart
Is not because of your limit
But it's because of someone else's goals -
You're afraid that you won't reach it.

Your template is your latest high score
No them, just you versus you on the floor
If you fall you'll get up, that's the spirit
All you need now is to just  DO IT!

Refuse to make the same excuses
For not making the relevant changes
Because your kids won't inherit jobs
But they copy your mindset when you beat the odds
Just Do It (Poem inspired by young entrepreneurs)

Why am I me?
I had a chance
to turn into many
But why did I get
stuck with me
this version,
there are so many bugs
I am always lagging
behind
Often I freeze midway
I am seldom muted
the voice quality
is so mediocre
the display so
unsatisfactory
why this me
?

as you purse your cherry lips,
i steal a glance
and witness the beauty
that you are.
i’m half-awake
and you’re half-asleep;
we could meet halfway—
as long as we know
where we are headed.
let’s meet halfway.

i can no longer
steal glances
and waste chances —
for your beguiling smile
enchants every piece of me
and your sweetest eyes
look like a felony
i am willing to commit.
you are worth it.
