Vindication

The puzzle has been solved The chain of the unknown has been unlocked Vindication has finally came And the sun shines so bright After being tagged as someone bad Because of one’s desire to be on top The wheel of fate has finally turned And stories of the past finally revealed Never regret the chosen…

Vicissitude

The shallowness of an empty tank Cloaked by darkness and smokey fog Enveloped by loud silence around the chamber Gazing at nowhere painlessly bleeding But history has already gone by The dark days are now draped by bright lights Music is now filling the four corners of the room No more wounds but only scars…

Pag-ibig sa Dayuhang Lupa

Nasanay na maglakbay sa mundo na mag-isa Walang inaasahan kundi sariling mga paa Sariling sikap at sariling kayod Upang pamumuhay ay maitaguyod Huwarang anak sa kanyang mga magulang Maasahang kaagapay sa mga kapatid na ang iba’y wala pang muwang Taga suporta sa kanilang pangangailangan Takbuhan sa oras ng kagipitan Sa kakulangan ng kinikita sa sariling…

Text Message

A usual night working in office A Tuesday that seems an ordinary drill Striking the keyboard and staring at the screen Real simple office night without special something Then suddenly a moment came, that I didn’t expect Heard a tone from my phone and so I checked it No name registered, just a number on…

Antok

Antok antok antok, ako’y iyong layuan Medyo matagal pa ang aming uwian Bakit ang aga mo kasing dumalaw Wala ka bang magawa’t ako ay binubulahaw Iba na lang kasi ang kulitin mo Pakiusap naman wag na ako Kelangan kong tapusin ang aking trabaho Kundi malalagot ako sa aking amo Ano aalis ka na ba o…
