I was told, “Stop punishing yourself, ” “Let her go and forget her.” Wouldn’t it be much more Of a punishment If I give up that easily And end up With someone Else?
Whatever consume you, Is the warden Of your mind.
The things You submit to, Are the ones Your heart Desire.
Yes, it’s true they are things I don’t like about you. Having said that, What else I could do I love you.
Have we no more, Fear of God.
What is peace? Is it the absence of events and circumstances that robs the calmness of our mind? Is it being free from the bondage of adulting? Is it the freedom or liberation from our responsibilities and duties in the daily grind of life-being a father and a husband, mother and a wife, student, activist, politician, laborer, driver, pastor etc.?

The sun rising up From the east Rays beaming upward Piercing lightly As the winds blew The white clouds Hovering above the entire city Heads bowed down The bird’s lullaby The petrichor rising above the ground As the overnight rain Had been drenching The parch longing Of every living thing That has turned brown Now awaits their turn To become green again Eyes glued The neighbor next door Said, Hi! Hello! Good morning. With her hair Flowing like the waves and mountains On the North Shore Of the Sandwich Isle Her bright blue eyes That could get you hypnotize Mesmerize, and get lost In the forest of her mind Hands together The kids running around As they grabbed their lunch And kissed you goodbye Look at the twinkle in their eyes The hugged they gave you It’s like forever goodbye On that bright screen Hustle and bustle Work, work, work Off you go Traffic Darn noise Lets get this over with Dollar for a day A routine for the majority Of life Still holding On the west side Of the town Bright beaming colors Of orange Purples Blues As the sun sets Ready to culminate And give way To the master of the night That gives light Without scorching Your heart Even on your bedside As the darkness burst Turned into night Dots of glimmering lights Filled up the sky That thing you call, mobile phone. First to see and […]
I was doing house cleaning today, and I noticed that the vacuum wasn’t working properly. It’s barely doing its job. I went ahead and just keep ignoring it even though it’s not picking up everything, it was spitting some of it out. The longer I keep ignoring it, the longer it’s not accomplishing anything. I just kept going round and […]
This past weekend we had a blast kayaking at my local lake with my daughter. For the entirety of it, that’s all we did. I never kayak before and I met some few people asking with amazement and curiosity about my kayak since it’s inflatable. Now, if I could just find the people that says Kansas is boring. And I’ll […]
I came home late one night, and found a piece of paper wedged on my door. To my dismay, it’s a late fee for a pet fee, costing me exactly sixty five dollars, instead of the usual fifteen dollars. Here in the Unites States, renters pay for their pets too. I know a lot of other places in the world doesn’t do such a thing. The next morning I went to the property manager’s office, just to find out she wasn’t there, so much for waking up early. I decided to just go back later on and did some errands. I finally caught up with her and paid the late fee. Usually when we talked, it’s very brief. Just the usual “hi, hello, how are you, bye, thank you.” It’s been almost two years since I got divorced. I looked horrid before, during and the aftermath of that ordeal. I never thought I could regain my composure, nor take back the essence of my life that was taken by years of betrayal and gaslighting. Nevertheless, by the grace of God, I did and I’ve never been happier. A large amount of my family, friends, acquaintance and associates noticed all the transformation that was the result of what I went through. “Oh, you look lively. You’re blooming. You look happy. You gained weight (I was scrawny).” There I was sitting across the desk from the property manager’s office, check on the […]
