I am in understanding
That I have no control
Over all the thoughts, sensations, and feelings
That I experience
At any given time
I accept this fact
To give me power
Over my reaction
To enable my ability to reply.
I once asked a passerby..
Have you heard of someone named "Ego"?

He gazed at me ironically without a reply..

As for the question, I didn't let it go..

Then, I heard a sound of an inner sigh..

Whispering.. "I'm the master who manipulates the more I grow.."

Deceiving your mind with an innocent cry.. "You are a shining star up high in the sky"..

Making you live in labyrinth and stray your thought..

I'm your demon who you wish I would die..

I insist to rock your boat..

I wish I could tell you the truth.. that I'm a big lie..

But, me myself has an Ego that won the fought..

I wish I was brave enough to release the birds to fly..

I'm still shy,
And it's not a lie.
They ask me, why?
But I don't have a proper reply!

This fact, I can't deny!
That, I'm an unsocial guy.
They ask me to give it a try,
But I can't talk to them eye to eye.

I'm a person with no social ally,
Because I know, they all are a sly.
Yet sometimes, I look for them nearby,
Mostly then, when my pain leads me to cry!

Now, it's time to identify,
In actual, who am I?
Am I born to be a societal fly?
Or, I'm destined to chase the sky?
A flow of rhymes....
Sly - cunning
Well, what did I expect?
Exactly that. I only hoped otherwise...

Thank you so much for cheering me up
Thank you for all the support
I'm sorry about "this" happening again to you
But
"Staying only make things worst"
It's very painful for me that
I'm hurting you
as much as I did to myself
But you know what
until the end
You did everything for me

You are everything for me

Im sorry I left
Please be happy okay?
My reply :)

Hey, ilysm and imy
Take care

My heart is beating rhythmically
 In resonance to the beat of 'End Of Time’.
My soul is breathing in tranquility,
In response to the gleaming full moon.
My body is surviving poetically
In reply to the poetries I write.
‘End Of Time’ is my most favourite song which is By Alan Walk

"While I gaze upon it
I feel a certain distance:
The moon light
Makes its way to dwellings
Everywhere, I feel."

      by Ki no Tsurayuki


My Reply

Bright Issues the Moon
dusts the landscape with pale ash
illumination
slackens our taut customs
we're brought closer to our hearts

[Bonus Material. Earlier looser version :

When brighter the Moon
unknots our taught habits
spends our ideas
freely in its pale light
we act closer to our hearts]

"Although I try
to hold the single thought
of Buddha's teaching in my heart,
I cannot help but hear
the many crickets' voices calling as well."

My Reply

The Buddha once heard
noisy Crickets at their play
received good teaching
did the crickets from the man
who practiced great stillness
