How dare you
to let me love you,

play the games
and be a fool,

when you belong
to someone else,

I couldn’t have you
till the end.

How dare I let myself
so shame for overplaying

why it’s so hard to end

when I just need
to pull the string.

I can do anything! You can do it too!

Now, it’s your turn to copy the line 20 times.


In response to the Daily Prompt Challenge: Dilemma



Let me unload you
This is so far I can go
I’m scared you weighing me down
I pray, with the wind you will gone.


Stop punishing me
for whatever I did you see
Seeking solace with such distaste
Unbearable, I could no longer take.


I will take you
out of me
Don’t need the heavy crown
To whip my sanity.


I have stumbled, but learned
Enough of your darkest game
Let me free you with my sharpened Faith
To the world, I give it all the way.


In response to the Daily Post Challenge: BURDEN



I feel so sorry to the world and to those people I have wronged and mistreated.

I wouldn’t excuse myself for being gritty and shitty because that was my choice, but then I still owe you all an apology.

Frail to Trust

“I wish I could be every little thing you wanted.”

Be careful of what you wish for because I am frail to trust. So don’t ruin the mood, let’s just go with our feelings all the way.

Look up. You must get past the fear to enjoy the view.

In response to the Photo Challenge: LOOK UP



Never let your kids walk away without a hug and a kiss, and they just made it. We were all laughing and smiling, a precious memory we can use to tease them when they grow up.

Will they become partners? Who knows?

In response to the Photo Challenge: PARTNERS




Empty your mind from resentment and replace it with fresh beautiful memories.

“Have you ever felt so broken,

by abuses from another’s hand…

or loss of the life you knew,

to a level you can’t understand.

For these scattered bones of brokenness,

are difficult to explain…

Unless you have felt this brokenness,

and all it’s devastating pain.”

Truly wonderful the pure smile of a child is.

Good morning heartache

Good morning heartache, you old gloomy sight

Thought we said goodbye last night

I turned and tossed until it seemed you had gone
But here you are with the dawn.

Wish I’d forget you, but you’re here to stay
It seems I met you when my love went away
Now everyday I start by saying to you
Good morning heartache, what’s new.

Stop haunting me now
I can’t shake you no how
Just leave me alone
You see I’ve got those Monday blues
Straight through Sunday blues.

Good morning heartache, here we go again
Good morning heartache, you’re the one who knew me when
Might as well get used to you hanging around
Good morning heartache, sit down, sit down.


Daily Post: STRUGGLE


Some couple dream of big house
Or a brand new car,
Some hope for stable job
or more money in their banks.

One couple’s dream of nothing else
Not a pride, but a child
A room with crib and a cradle,
Clothes and toys inside.

Their prayers have been answered
Nothing to be feared anymore,
But only gladness and excitement
Rejoice their heart to the Lord!

Closet of Miseries

When you broke up, he did everything he could to make you back. He cannot even dredge what he had done just to make you stay, approaches you have never cared, people that you have never considered about. You were so cruel, so self-centered, as if you are the most unfortunate soul suffering for what had happened between you and him.

When he finally understood that his mind needs to paced over from what his heart’s desire, he ended it by giving up. Giving up is not always his weak side, but sometimes it turns out to be the courageous act for his salvation. When he was certain that he doesn’t want to chase you anymore, but couldn’t stop his yearning, he made his own means of enduring his miseries.

Every time he missed you, he always writes a letter for you. A lot of letters that show the whole thing about his sentiments; there he expressed his lingering, begged you to come back, pleaded for another chance, being sorry though it wasn’t his fault and of course, cursed you to death. Those letters he has never sent it to you, neither he doesn’t have plans too. It was just his own resolution of saying goodbye and letting you go.

After a long two years, he unintentionally opens his old closet, and there he found you. You are the letters. He hid you from the closet of darkness and dismay where you are worthy to belong off, and there he buried you with the ashes of his sad memories.

Thank you for breaking his heart and for giving him the chance to see that life is much better, braver and nicer without you.

Now, his closet is afresh for another bunch of letters, waiting and accepting.

J – Just Once

Just once.

I can’t figure it out why I keep doing wrong.
Hope it won’t never last for very long.
Why Am I doing wrong?

Just once.

Can I find a way to finally make it right?
If I could just get to it,
I know I could break through it.

Just once.


 Thank you JAMES INGRAM.

1. When you were a child, what was your dream? Has it changed?

When I was a child, I’d love to play as a teacher. I had one friend who loves to act as my student. From my vivid memory, that was all started why I want to become a teacher.

My grandmother. She passionately loves her children, even though she was harsh and authoritarian. I witnessed how she always prays for them and to her grandchildren. She didn’t attend school after high school, but she was witty, intelligent and clever. Though she was very traditional in dealing with us, she has a big heart to those who asked for help. She taught me how to clean, to maintain good manners and to pray. Even in her last days of her life, she maintained her dignity.

5. What changes do you want to happen in your country?

I want my country to be safe and to be free from corruption.

F – friendship

“They said, there is no better and other way to show your friends that they are valuable people than valuing them. The more these people feel valuable the more they will begin to say things of value.  The more you listen to them, the more you will realize that they are extraordinary individual. The more your friends know that you value them, that you consider them extraordinary people, the more they feel the importance of life..”




For almost every day in five months, I have always seen this old lady carrying her suitcase with plastic bags and some stuff. She constantly stopped by and spread some grains on that wall. First, I didn’t notice what she was up to until I saw around more than twenty of doves hovering towards her and landed to eat the grains. It was a splendid scenery!

I haven’t seen anyone cared so much to do this thing in the morning aside from hastening and bustling to work, that includes myself. I tried to greet her several times or just give her a smile, but it seems she has her own world.

She never looked at me at all. Instead, I found her chattering alone and smiling in the air. I don’t remember she changed her clothes either because she’s always wearing that gray long sleeves and sweatpants, a little dirty.

One day, one week, one month, I didn’t see her any longer. There were no doves anymore. She just disappeared along with my morning little joy.

I wonder what happened to her. I just hope and pray that she is just fine.



Be happy ☺
