Dear Diary,

As the keeper of my secrets,

I need to confess my troubles.

I run around trying to please everyone And seem to end up alone!

As if by indulging others’ needs before mine,

I relegate my own happiness into a dark mine.

In it, the gloominess of the ambience

Is oppressive, comfortless, and has no patience.

As I squabble with my inner demons,

And my supererogation drowns my angels’ voices,

I notice that angels are a happy lot,

Who empower the self and never forgot

That there’s a price to pay for sacrificing For others, but it doesn’t need to be self-defeating.

No, no, no, and once more, no!

By helping others, you aren’t weak to

Assert your endowments to achieve

Your wishes without being demeaning,

Rather, you can help others believe

Not only in themselves, but in You.

Cowardly Courage

“Man has it all in his hands, and it all slips through his fingers from sheer cowardice.” Fyodor Dostoevsky

To be a coward,

One must:

Fear being changed,

Fear loving it,

Fear beauty,

Fear being hopeful,

Fear the inspirational,

Fear of being an individual,

Fear of being assertive,

Fear of being humane,

Fear of being disruptive,

Fear of being positive.

When all is locked in a chest,

How can you break its best

From solid bonds that need a rest?

Take pride in ‘you’, the ‘person’,

Have faith in yourself and press on,

Knowing that what’s right will live on!

Insatiably Fair

Insatiable faith is soothing,
As you’re centered to blossoming
Your beliefs into trees whose rooting

Needs are coupled with everything
That’s embued with strength, and holding
Knowledge, that’s irrefutably humbling.

The older the trees, cedar, pine, birch,
Western red cedar, white spruce, red oak, all filtch
Your vision with their hued colors, that stitch

Your heart into nature’s aesthetic
That winds, like the live roots, in bucolic
Wonder, as you’re rooted in awe of the beatific.

These trees, lungs of the earth, tremble
And fall when cut, to make room for buildable
Cities for humanity’s life, that’s indomitable.

As man disembows the earth of air,
He’s also on a journey of self-destruction that’s pair
With his faith, nature, ancestry, and a flair
For annihilation of all that’s fair.

Visions or Reality

Faith!

Tick tock, tick tick, Zeus and Hera were gods of old,

Whose siblings and children ruled Olympus to forward

Their traits into humanity, but if they didn’t subjugate

Themselves to the will of the gods, they impose their revenge.

Tick tock, tick tock, polytheism gods’ names change

With time, civilizations, to represent the needs of the

People, from Thor to Anu, to Anubis, and Dragon

Or Shangti who require sacrifice and receded into anon.

Tick tock, tick tock, monotheism starts with Moses,

Jesus, and Mohammad whose miracles and messages

Are similar in that they ALL believe in One God that reigns

Supreme in the heavens.

Today, we regress into polytheism of the church

Of the broken god, that believes in evil within flesh,

While aspiring to mechanization of self, logic, and intellect.

Again the female god is animalistic and impulsive.

Yet, so many others continue to revere the monotheistic

Religions, knowing that faith is an antidepressant,

A builder of confidence, a strength stronger than mountains.

It elevates you and steers you away from obduracy.

Dominian of Life

The journey of life encompasses extreme emotions

From depression, to betrayal, to exhiliration.

Starting from worst to best in order to end on a positive note

We begin at the lowest times filled with darkness:

An abyss of desolateness that propels you into a whole

Whirlpool that sucks you into a vortex of helplessness.

Don’t succomb to it!

Shout out your power and suppress anything that depresses it!

Betrayal is next, it’s the real-estate of a state of extreme

Emotions overpowering your selfworth and take

You into a sepulcher of pain trying to negate Its influence.

Accept it, face it, then leave it in a chest,

Locked, chained, and sealed with the hardiest

Of mannacles that are intangible, but bind none the less!

Your exhiliration comes with success in overcoming failure,

Cheer in the face of animosity, changes that come before

You are ready, but there regardless.

Facing the challenges of change can be charmless,

Or it could be an exultation so overpowering it renders

Your fear into miniscule object that has a suppressor.

Let life’s challenges be what strengthens who you are,

Let it assert its dominion over those ‘Nay Sayer’,

Never succumbing into the blackwhole of despair.

Let your faith in yourself be your real-estate rather than a betrayer.
