Mercy

I swear to you I’m lying, it’s true. I could’ve said it, I could’ve killed you and you’d have no clue. Bare handed, I stand before you, all I have are my words, they’re naked and few; they burn through your soul, fire in the hole! I know my way around and I shall break…

Rumination

From torn sketches to lost books, it has been a tedious ride. I remember the wind in my hair and sunlight on my face as I rode my bicycle to school and the tears that ran down my cheeks because of broken things. I’ve travelled miles of years from dusk till dawn, bound to people…

I

I’m a bottle in the ocean,Drifting afarUntil I sink; I’m a message that’s lost,In translation, on a paper that’s washed. I’m a voiceThat’s trapped inside a conch shell;Quiet yet present. I’m a destination without a pathAnd path without a direction. You see me but you don’t;You can touch me but you can’t;I am but I’m…

Welcome to my life

Search

On this path, I walk With my head down Avoiding looks and talks Hiding the frown A thousand questions haunt The road I've taken For answers, I hunt Unsure and broken The voice That once calmed My demons Is now gone A part of me, that went Searching for you Was lost and never found…

Oneself.

How does it feel When you break free from Those chains? What is it like When all your efforts go In vain? Is there pain When you carry all that blame? Tell me, brother, I heard you say "It's all the same" Is your soul now A relic of your past? Do you feel your…

Why?

Why Do you keep knocking When no one answers? Why Do you go to places? You're unwanted. Who's letting you in? You take the wrong paths Rang the wrong bells Held odd hands Shared incomplete paths Why Do you search for purpose? There isn't one Why Do you seek meaning? When you can't give it…

Note to self

The deeper we look, the shallower we are. No matter how perfect people are, there's always a flaw lurking deep within.Everyone is guilty of something, nobody is free from the consequences. Flaws make us what we are. Let's embrace our flaws. Before we forgive people, let's learn to forgive ourselves.
