He keeps packing, travelling, working, never ending He is afraid to stop becuase he has a home no more The lonely journey on the road is way better than the one he endures in life In the end, he will die a workaholic with no family to feed That to him, it’s still better than a lone man with no one to bury him
We are the middle aged youth who are energetic and effervescent. We take life’s crisis head-on without whinging or whining. We have enough discernment to choose which battle to fight. We see wisdom in both the young and the old. We learned to count our blessings than troubles. We taste the goodness of life in the most ordinary way.
I love the quiet But I prefer birds sing I am tired of listening to people But your speaking makes me happy Someone is so full of enthusiasm It isn’t what I am used to Someone is so full of life It is what my heart desires How satisfying A life filled with birds singing And you
traveled a great distance in time
from her mother’s nourishing bosoms
led by her father’s sturdy palms
was given away to a trustworthy man
whose gentle touch unlocked her heart
overflown with joy
were latched on by tiny fingers
fragile and angelic
never ever letting go
traveled afar in the land
from the touch of life giving soil and rain
to the production line and paperwork
the wrinkles told of her life long hard work
the sun spots apprised her of a blessed long life
You are remembered on earth here
where the land meets the sea
Your ashes and bones vibrated
by the waves battering the rocks
you are begging for more
to remind you that
your life is ongoing
after its last breath
till the ocean erodes the land
You go under the water
and be free

I don’t know what to do
except sobbing with you.
I would love to give you the world
God has intended for you.
But I have found myself
standing in a place
living the wrong life
I am taking up a heart’s space
by being in the wrong time.
Life is fragile when we think it will go on.
Do things you always want to do and you don’t need to be ready.
Go places you always want to be without planning.
See people you want to see just because.
Say I love you to someone special and not worry if you hear it back.
Life is fragile and you live it as intended.
