I wish I’m a believer

This is quite random: I wish I’m a believer. I wish I could pray right now, and pray for those who are suffering, for those who are ill, or those who are fighting death. I wish I can pray for those who have lost their jobs and their hopes. For those who are trying to […]

Keep going

Keep going. The path is still long. Yes, it goes far. You can walk, slowly, or fast, or even even run. But keep going. Yes, there are people. Remember, it’s not a race, run when you can, and walk when you’re tired. You can stop, surely to have some water, but then keep going. It’s […]

A Christmas Song

I wanted to write a jolly song for Christmas, but then I remembered it was still raining. Pouring, the outside world has turned quickly into darkness, without any sign of warmth. In my Christmas song, I wanted to write about joy, family and good times. I wanted to sing in my song, and cry — […]

A Wedding in my Village

I should have written this two weeks ago, but here you go: There is a wedding in my village For the first time What an honor What a privilege There is a wedding in my village In our own village In our own church The only church The only standing building A charming chapel Plain […]

Tick-tock

Tick-tock The clock is ticking A day Few hours Few minutes Until the big day The big day is by all means Not my wedding Not The big day But my big day My birthday! The day I turn 29 Twenty nine My twenties are almost over I only have one last year And then […]

A post for October

October. I have to dedicate some words for October. Or perhaps I should name my first born October. October is my month, and somehow it’s one of my favorite months. I feel October in my bones. It gives me the chills. And the good kind of chills. October is the beginning. October welcomes the Autumn […]

Rise, my dear.

My dear,Rise! You’ll be alright. All of this — all will be gone. Your agony, anguish, and anger will all — be gone. Go to sleep. In your sleep you’ll find beauty, will find love, and escapades – from your dark real mind. And when the sun rises, you’ll rise too. Strong and great. Now, […]

A writer, a dream

About ten years ago I decided that I want to become a writer. I was dreaming about becoming one of those best-selling authors that can live this exciting life of just spending time in solitude and write. I spent my late teen years (18 and 19) trying to write. I knew I lacked the language […]

Suffocated (or untitled)

Suffocated Within those boundaries around me in my city my hometown   I can’t fight too weak to resist to fragile to stand up   So sick to defend my birthright too weak to lose my home too careful not to be found   hiding within my own thoughts my own beliefs my rights as […]

Autumn Agony (unfinished)

– October 14, 2017 When it’s the beginning of the year The autumn leaves turn into flames And fall off. No longer part of their home Their grand, erect, warm and green home. They loved their home. Their home carried them Protected them And nourished them. And now they’re part of this earth, Wandering to […]

It’s Christmas Today -a poem from 2012

Unsent Letters

We all carry a package filled with feelings. Whenever we meet a certain person, fall in love, or even just like a person; romantically or platonically. Sometimes, even at work, or at school, or anywhere, we meet people, we build a certain kind of friendship, relationship or even hostility towards or with any certain person. […]
