This Too Shall Pass

"These are not normal times" and
We agreed
Why not say we all are sick
So we seek to heal?

It's our fight to recover
A collective responsibility
What is there to discover
beyond the perimeter of our doors?

The streets no longer teem
Fellowships and gatherings our hotspot
Even rigid cultures have changed
Super nations under attack

Listen! The world is in crisis
It's not normal a time for us
to discover the world around us
Is it so much to contain?

The good news!
We can build on
But not out of danger
Let's keep our anger away from the survivors

One thing for sure,
"The child at the back of the mother
does not know the distance covered by
the weary feets of the mother, until he comes down and equally takes a walk"
Our leaders need us to cooperate and it's our cooperation that will make their work even easier.

Let's listen to our leaders
as we obey and allow the sciences.
Very soon, we shall see the signs
of the morning near because in the
clouds of misery, there is hope from the
rain that cometh forth.

God is our witness and
We'd come to our wits' end
This too shall pass..

Your eyes are calling me,
Don't say, just stay.
There's nothing to do,
A midnight will be soon.

But one thing you should know,
I don't fit almost nowhere.
I wanna know so hard,
Is there anyone with pure heart.

It's up to you, but
Don't be scared, just stay.
So wonder with me,
Is there original human being.

With me, you're safe.
You can be all what you are.
My eyes won't be closed,
My heart will be warm.

the trees sway with the gentle afternoon breeze
as the hot day ticks by
the familiar whirr of a car zooms through an empty street
as joggers jog along the lonely pavement
stray cats hiss and scratch
a dog wanders alone
the busy life i once lived through
seems like a blurred dream
but this is a season finale
and a long, stretched out hiatus of some sort
and soon the next episode will start
life goes on.

Waking up in valorous conduct/
aware of my impetuous commitments/
I long for awakenings when my eyes seem to be open/
Misinterpreting a reality I can’t untangle/
Trying to bring about the moments that brought me most happiness by force/
Valiant to go against my deepest rejections/
Alone in the moments we belong together in/
To think my art was stymied by your love/
Selfish me, couldn’t see it took a selfless “Sweet” to redeem our forever ever after/
         (Interruptions from the tip of my ego)
(Getting the best of my fragility, I’m not tough)
In shambles after processing what once was, actually was/
Questioning the will my mental grip strength had during changes I never wanted to face/
Your love, like pummeling fists dodged my ignorance/
Careless and regretful, the silence is filled with what “was”/
Ashamed, but perhaps a benison in development.... through the pain/
we rarely eat now
it's been 3 weeks and maybe longer
the fun of trying new recipes
read poetry and online classes
no longer affects me/us

maybe my aunt already miss her home
she used to live alone
but now got two body to feed

and I'm no longer excited
red nose missing my hometown and the beach
messed sleeping schedule and milk tea

I want things to go back as usual
please :(
Bring Back Your Special
Smile Mary Lou
I hear you're not
Doing to well
May you return
Soon with your
Beautiful bright smile
We all miss you
So hurry up
And get better soon..

it all comes crashing down
nowhere left to turn
try to run but
cigarettes won't burn
fast enough

The winds of change are coming soon.
You can already see them starting to affect the moon.
The winds of change make the days shorter and nights colder.
Not that that's a bad thing.
It can make people want to be closer than shoulder to shoulder.
To the trees, the winds of change are like school bus drivers.
the breeze carries their leaves away, drops them safely on the ground, then returns them bright and new when spring rolls back around.
Change can be scary. But not all change is bad.
Just think of the pumpkins and cider and good times to be had.

The wind howls louder
than a wolf to the moon.
But don't worry.
Spring is coming soon
and will stay until June.
