"Having gone through it once did not mean it did not hurt the second time. It is painful, raw and heart-wrenching. But I know I am going to get through it. I know I have to invest in myself, the people who I love and love me back and invest in the things that make me feel better so that my past would not hold me captive. I know if I was to work for the better, I would be much happier with my present and would not go back to rekindle with my past as I would have accepted the suffering is part of the path of finding my strength and a better self."

- excerpt from an open letter

Catch me a body
Give me a vessel
One that I can deposit in for future savings
My safety net
My last call
My first account for the day

"Loving is never wrong, it is always right"

This line struck me to the core
My beliefs are starting to crumble
Doubt rises inside my head

"This is unfair! Why I feel wronged when I fall in love with her?!"

A question that burst inside my heart
Frustration, pain, anger and weakness goes with it
A typhoon that destroys everything in its path

"Then why invest when it's already a losing fight?"

I was lost, my voice doesn't seem to go out
Why did I love a person who in the first place does not love me back?
For once I truly loved a person who drag me in despair
A lesson that needs to be ingrain in my heart
I do not believe I am
capable of being
loveless.

Pouring all I have
into all I have
got.

My heart beats & drums
away, ever full.

For it has too much
to give.

Shared looks, & evenly exchanged
gestures of touch.

My brave heart flutters.

And for each thing
I love
I receive but a little in return.

This return is why
I am never
Loveless.

Trust?
How do you trust someone?
How do you take such heavy risk?
Putting your whole world on hold
Banking on someone's good intentions
And their conscience
Even when you know they are human
And we're inately decietful.
Just how?

Right now I'm afriad
Afraid that I'll loose
Loose it all
All that i invested
Invested in a human.

But this time, I'll chose to trust.
Or should I?

Immune To the grasp of the sword but it manage to get some cuts in,
all jokes aside for the killers that ride every day for an unnecessary purposes,
bills to pay when knowing your worth in a system that'll over exploit and do the
most,
its just not even worth it,
look for the people that live a box and they'll tell you what real life's worth is,
don't you give into the serpent,
that roams around the earth and pulls curtains,
that leaves dead spirits in your house , leave your mind in a drought and try to
resurface,
From The powers within and a strength from a country that don't really care about
us,
Therefore , the love and the freedoms diminished in the population where we
have the right to trust...

Man its common sense,
the truth is heaven sent,
everything is evident,
they laugh behind the scenes while drinking fine wine,
leading distortion and corruption like the dickens in a hell pit,
its common sense,
let me say it again,
Man its common sense,
the truth is heaven sent,
everything is evident,
they laugh behind the scenes while drinking fine wine,
leading distortion and corruption like the dickens in a hell pit,

Man its common sense.

He told me you were beautiful,
he told me you had everything,
that i would like and even more,
predicting futures more like wedding rings,
and i,
would like,
to see,
you,
and i,
would like,
to see,
you,

And have nothing more to give,
to anyone else,
You better keep me happy while i'm investing my time into you...

and i,
would like,
to see,
you,
and i,
would like,
to see,
you,

And have nothing more to give,
to anyone else,

You better keep me happy while i'm investing my time into you.

Validity is all I seek,
Or perhaps
I have invested all my life into a
Devilish lie.

“The best investment that one could ever make
is into another life
in hopes that the stock matures and is productive
and in return your rewards are priceless”
The best investment is not in a home or the stock market, it is in another human being with hopes that he or she turns out to be a productive citizen in society.   If that is successfully achieved, then the payout is priceless.
Captain Trips Feb 2015
When I'm done consuming
whatever it is that I just bought
I can easily throw away the remains
and happily be left with nothing again
Eat your dollar bills, drink the change.
