Fickle fingers of fate

They say "good things come to those who wait"
but indecision leaves love dangling...
in the fickle fingers of fate.

Take control of your own destiny,
grab the bull by the horns...
and ride the back of what's meant to be.

Rather shall also bring you backward
Confusion shall sprout...Read More

the pierced heart
The wind of time wobbled me,
My heart quivered in fear.
My tree has lost its roots,
My flowers of hope withered,
And got rustled by wind.
My passion was becoming faint,
And my mind in total turmoil.
I looked towards the horizon,
Hoped things will be in...Read More

FAITH

Faith is,
to believe in something you cannot see,
like planting a seed,
expecting the tree,
it's when you've lost it all,
but never gave up,
that is true faith,
now that's wassap

At times of loss and grief,
I wonder where is God,
when I'm alone 
on this lonely...Read More

When smiles start to fade away
tears inevitably fall.
For you cannot help but cry
if love means nothing at all.

Hope encourages lonely hearts
to seize the bull by the horns.
And in those moments you get
to choose the rose or the thorns.

Damn proud of it, too.

Grabbed the bull by the horns

Brought her accolades galore.

She was school principal then

Where freedom is more than thoughts of the mind.
But, an air of uncertainty filled the hall,
And the penalty for treason...Read More
