An instant

In an instant it all fell apart.

With a word that refused to take flight.

A moment soon gone.

For my words lingered on my lips for far too long.

A moment crying mercy!

But left behind, wasted in foolish hesitation

O, cruel inhumanity so afraid and lost

Was there any other way in which pride was not so blind?

Impatience

2013 memorial bonnet 5 copy

Impatient as always
you don’t let time

have its way

willing to walk into oblivion
you lose sight and run wild

drifting into your own thoughts
like there is no end to the world

if only you had a clue
how long it takes

to heal a hurt.

Instead, you try to hide
the ghosts that haunt you

unaware that I can still see them
trembling in your eyes

don’t be afraid

for time always have its way.

Life

2013 memorial red 3 copy

I know, I know, how hard it is

but for all the stars that shine
and the flowers that bloom

there is nothing more precious
than the light of her eyes.

Not even the sounds of the ocean
nor its gentle breeze

there is nothing more precious
than the laughter of her smile.

I know, I know, how hard it is

but if it is a miracle
when a star is born

it fails to compare
to the cry of a newborn.

A False Choice

DSC_0087 copy

Love and life drained
in the agony of despair

a false choice that wants to rip
humanity from your heart

for the world calls you
to give up the fruit of your womb

to offer it as a sacrifice
to appease the gods

that we have built for ourselves.

That is not you! Your heart knows best
because you were made for more

yet you feel that you have no choice

but why such haplessness
before the dawn?

Don’t you know that light shine
its brightest in the depth of night?
