It is Reading a book And Looking at the words Yet Not truly seeing them Rereading the first page 100 times Hoping to find the meaning That your life Seems to have lost
It is Dropping things for no reason Because you're too numb To feel your own fingers But feel too much To let go And forgive yourself
It is Worshipping the hands of the clock Like a savior As if every passing minute will bring you to a better future Not realizing that every passing minute Is a vice That never seems to loosen its hold On your consciousness
It is Writing poetry In hopes That one day You will better understand yourself Through words on a page Than through your own mind Hoping That you will no longer be a subconscious stranger Occupying your own thoughts And misleading The girl you wish to be.

Deception mistaken for protection. Oh so naive. Unwittingly taking fiction as gospel, wholeheartedly, they believe. The art of lying, simply unable to conceive. In these formative years, all the elders did was sugarcoat. Upon uncovering the truth. They realize all that they've been fed is poison, slowly, it has been secreted. Down their throat. Cruelly cheated. The innocence of youth.
Three decades back, A communist, As a fad atheist, To my chagrin You taught us "God doesn't exist!"
To my surprise After mass I saw you yesterday Kneeling down Hands upward Wholeheartedly when You Pray.
Out of His mercy And benevolence No doubt God will forgive you At once, For what matters Is your repentance.
But I can't help to ask What will be the fate of Of those credulous children At their formative years You sent off the track Without a mental map To return back?
