Roses are red
Violets are blue
And you are you
The less the better
The more the clutter
But then again the more the better

Where do we create that gentle balance?
Who wins the ballot?
A smaller perimeter with pockets of silence?
Every soul needs it.

Or a much larger one with lots of nuisance?
You'll find your heart bleeding.

Happiness is when your needs are way less than your wants.

Don't paint up your wants into needs,
and you'll feel lighter.

A greater form of happiness is when you fix someone their necessities.

We're mostly counting up to 65 or so, let's not spend most of the journey in tears.

But in hardwork, minimalism, kindness, hope and happiness.

Ikaw --
Ang tula sa'king gabi,
Ang tulang 'di isantatabi.
I want to be free
The strings spun a hard to see
But cut they shall be
I: a paradox
Find peace in delirium
Grateful for the skill
A sleep deprivation induced  euphoria

I misplaced a tear drop
                                     in a jar full of collected rain.
Cloudy thoughts sway me forward to face the day

Happiness is invasive
Search for an eraser
I am a mistake maker
I’m a fixer upper
You should paint my shutters
I shutter myself
And have a stutter
I’m aloof
Like you used to be
Before you stopped seeing me
Now I’m sleepy
And I lie my head on my pillow
Lots of things to consider
Possibilities hot like cinders
I :living a dream...vibrant, abundant and ,just, as immaterial.
