My Dearest Sisters…

My dearest sisters, you are an guardian angel in disguise,

You are fantastic, intelligent, and wise.

Always helping me through the good and bad,

You are also the greatest friend I’ve ever had.

Though I’ve put our relationship through some hazy days,

You’ve been the sunlight that has shone in so many ways.

My only wish, it would be,

To provide you all that you have given me.

I will always be there for you no matter what,

If you need someone to talk too, I’ll always be there.

And though I tell you I can’t stand you,

You come back with, “That’s not true.”

We’ve had our fights,

Which lead to sleepless nights,

But in the end, I thank you so much.

My appreciation for you has no end.

You will always be my sister and my friend.


Hope you enjoyed this short poem and I wish you all a #HappyNationalSiblingsDay!

A New World Is Born…

And when the most cruel beings ever to exist had been wiped out

After destroying their planet and each other,

Stuck in their bubble for a love of greed and destruction

A new world is born.

After millennials of a polluted earth

The sun finally shines through the smoke and dust,

Making the once dirty landscape into a beautiful landscape

Animals then continue their lives in a world that was once theirs.

No more fear of being hunted to extinction

No more habitats being destroyed for human purposes,

Just a silent breeze blowing the once bad things to good things

A fresh new beginning for planet Earth

Thus, a new world is born.


I wrote this short poem because seeing our world being destroyed by our own is truly heartbreaking. Life on Earth is the best gift one could have, to live life to its fullest and to see our world’s wonders is something so great, but at the same time, we do not deserve such a gift if we are to destroy it.

This picture shot by National Geographic photographer Anton Petrus, should remind us all that our planet is beautiful and that we should protect it at all cost.

It is my actions that determine the future and hope for this generation and the next.

As Fragile And As Unique

Yes, our people have accomplished so many things.

They’ve discovered the wonders of our world,

Climbed the highest mountains,

Invented incredible things,

Even traveled to the moon and back.

But we can be fragile beings,

A moment of laughter can be driven to tears,

Broken by trust and fault,

Deceived by the most idiotic situations.

And we can be replenished,

Healed by love and trust,

Bandaged by the sand of times,

Recovered by the burden of family.

In the end,

We are fragile beings.

Broken by fault and fixed with love.


I love the idea of something beautiful, like a vase or a painting, that can be broken so easily. And while one might easily toss it aside, the others fixes it. The end result has more beauty than it did before because of someone’s talent, time and love.

Uniquely, I am showing the veracity of the human person. One can be so easily hurt and sad but can be easily fixed with love and trust. In the end, we are fragile beings. Broken by fault and fixed with love.

Hope you enjoyed this post, and stay tuned for more to come!

Oh Wonderful Water

The water fills our earth,

It understands civilization well.

With a face of golden pleasure,

It puts us under a spell.

Elegantly it makes us feel better,

Whenever we hear its sound.

How magical it is,

It makes my heart pound.

We’d splash inside a cool fresh stream,

How beautiful, how sweet the dream.

A continuous journey,

How amazing, how it will never end.

Oh wonderful water.

 

You Can’t Ignore It

I am just a young man,

Living life to explore.

Seeing many beautiful things,

Gosh, I want to see it more.

But seeing the wonders of our world,

It blows my mind, no it’s unreal.

But there is, however, a thought in my head,

Begging to come out.

When I see it being destroyed,

It makes me want to shout.

Our society is ignorant,

Ignorant to the real problems.

Living in a world we all share,

But hey, they don’t really care.

So many of our wild species are dying,

The poor are crying,

And Mother Nature is sighing.

But what does that all mean,

It means that time is running out.

God thought us all to help one another,

But is that really what we are doing?

Sure we are but many of us aren’t,

In fact, many of us don’t really care.

What we need is to work together,

To the real problems out there.

To save our animals,

To save our waters,

To save our land,

To help the poor,

To help those who don’t have a voice.

All it takes is one act of kindness,

And you can change the world
