AKIKO Apr 2017
Ako'y mailap
Pag si Ina'y kapiling
Kung ako'y umasta parang
Hindi sya nakikita
Parabang sa isip ko'y ako lang
Mag-isa

Anong mali?
Tanong ko sa  sarili
Anong mali at ganito ako
Umasta,
Sa harap ni Inay na nagbigay
Buhay sa kagaya kong walang
Kwenta

Pero bakit ba?
Gusto ko ba na isilang nya ang
Kagaya kong basura na ay wala pang kwenta?

Sukdulan na siguro
Ang hinanakit ni Ina sa akin
Kayat luha nya'y hindi na napigil
Ako'y sinumbatan
Lahat ng kamalian ko'y
Sinambit
Sa unang pagkakataon
Si Ina ay nagalit

Ako'y nagtaka
Sa aking nadarama
Ang puso ko'y bakit tila sasabog na
Sa nakitang luha
Na umagus pababa

Isang gaya ko
Ang nagpaluha sa Kanya
O, anung hirap at
Sakit pala
Ang makitang lumuha
Ang Ginang na nagpalaki't umaruga
Sa gaya kong walang kwenta

Ngayu'y alam kuna
Ang damdamin ni Ina
Ako ay nangakong
Magbabago na, upang damdami'y ni Ina hindi na masaktan pa
At brilyante  nyang mata'y hindi na tumangis pa

Ang mahal kong Ina nasa malayo na
Paano na ang pramis ko
Tila naging abo na

Masakit isiping
Pagmamahal ay di naipadama
Sa nag-iisa kong Reyna
Na nagpahalaga sa kagayakong basura na'y wala pang kwenta

Sumilip ang Araw
Sa mata kong nakapikit
Kahit natakluban na ng luha ang mata
Batid kong si Ina'y nasa tagiliran ko pala
Nakatayo at nakangiti,may alay na pagmamahal ang brilyante nyang mga mata

Hinagkan ko si Nanay
Tudo bigay ang dabest kong yakap
Sabay dampi ng matamis kong halik sakanyang pisngi
Batid ko si Nanay ay nagtaka
Tila nagulat pa nga sa bago kung pag-asta

Labis akong nasaktan
Sa panaginip na handa ng may kapal
Tiyak ako'y kanyang sinubok
Upang malaman ko na ang halaga ni  Nanay ay di lamang sintaas ng bundok
Kundi sinlawak din pala dagat

Ang mahagkan pala si Nanay
Ay Walang kasing sarap
Sa haba nang panahon sanay
Noon kupa nadanas
Ang mayakap si Nanay kahit gaano pa katagal
Ay hindi ako magsasawa
Ohh,kay saya maranasan ang ganito
Ang makapiling si Nanay
Buo na ang araw ko

Ang pramis ko Nay ay isa lang
Mamahalin kita higit pa sa buhay kong taglay
basta ba dito kalang at hindi lilisan
Hindi lahat ng sandali'y kapiling
Ka Nanay

Inside the great
big global village
not everything is rosy
even a cat knows it
a leaf can sniff it.
The Moon shines
not in every night
nor *** promised
always a blue sky.
Still the roses bloom
Cinderella has the heap
the reasons to groom.

The richest among the folks
turns philanthropist in the globe.
The wisest among the men
celebrate the era for it’s
the civilisation at its peak.
Hooray what now triumphs at last
is the wisdom and humanity!

Really? O please tell me?
Not very far, nor for much,
just because some differ in faith
mothers and fathers left in pain.
Not because they are to lose
Rohingyan sun nor the land
beneath their feet but in no time
their sons and daughters
can be put to death into fire
that too before their eyes
before the silent established world!

I can't promise you much
but if you must know
I can promise you
good books and music
good food and films
conversations
and all of my heart.

Death whispered to Life,

"I promise, no matter
how convincing you seem
to them, they will
always run back to
me in the end."

Today came without it's promise

Left me teetering this precipice.
Cné Mar 2017
i am your pet, cherished, you bet
from the very first moment, we met

you are my master, tried and true
my job in life is to always, please you

i wander aimlessly alone
when you're gone, so long, on your own

forgive me, if i chew your shoe
i was nervous and i missed you

if i snack some food from the trash
it smelled so good, how could i pass

bark, bark, bark, i cry out alarm
the mailman has come here to harm

when you get home, i'm so happy
wagging my tail with my whole body

when we go for a walk together
if a cat threatens, away i chase her

don't be upset with me, please sir
i promise to protect you from all danger

i greet other dogs, on our way
smelling their butts to just say, hey

i lift my leg marking my place
to find my way back, just in case

i'm not too crazy about the rain
but i'll keep you company and not complain

laying belly up is a sign
scratch me, rub me and i'll be fine

if I lick my area, because i can
please don't be jealous of me, man

sleeping here, my chin on your foot
obediently, my faith in you, i put

though my purpose, i may reach in a flash
compared to your life, my longevity won't last

my loyalty to you, will never sever
unconditionally, i love you, forever
Another artist's statement for a series
of pet portraits I've painted
Feeling like out of place
Like a stranger in a stranger land
Recalling those days of salt
Our marks in the sand
Being washed away by the sea.


I exactly know how far we are
I can even count every single meter
Between my heart and yours
But i will never be able
To count my love for you.


As the days keep turning into nights
As the blossoms open into flowers
As the chrysalis transform into butterflies
As the winter leads his way to spring
I will keep this love for you.


I've been trying to find
The birth of my feeling
The death of it, but couldn't
As profound as the black endlessy
My gaze didn't find any beginning or end.


Some says that love is just a game
Merely a storm that temporarly mess you up
Abandoning you as it was just a dream
Pouring you with all the rain you needed
Leaving you with no more than just sickness.


But that wasn't you
Just like a shooting star from Aquariis
Bringer of changes, you catch me.
You're a girl that i can only meet
Once in a billion lifetimes.


I can even drown in a thousands of seas
But the fire burning for you
Will never weaken
It will only grow stronger
To keep me alive, to keep my heart beating.


As your eyes shine upon me
As your true smile light my darkest hours
As you sleep over my voice
As sure as i miss you
I will never go away.


I promise you.
I once wrote this for the one i love.
i’m made of sidewalk cracks and moments i should’ve taken
i’m made of broken rings and the wrong girls i put my trust in.
because i didn’t know what love was until i kissed a girl made of thorns
and i didn’t know what happiness was until fear started sleeping without locking the door.
i’m no where near what the world makes me out to be
what it expects from me
and maybe that’s okay.
i’m made of ****** coffee and the constant pressure of being something else
i'm made of holes in the foundation and girls that kiss me just to watch me melt.
because i didn't know what **** was until i touched skin made of broken glass
and i didn't know what hope was until i fell a little too fast.
my story ends before it even starts
because forever is only real if you look like art
but i look like broken promises in an empty hallway
and maybe that's okay.
and strange what desire will make foolish people do
