Begging for a way out,
Never had much clout.

Seeing through these eyes,
I fear the only truth are the never ending lies.

Searching further than I hoped to find myself,
Always stoic and hoping for that one chance at wealth.

Fanning off the haters and trying to be a conqueror,
Every single day, every single step draws me closer.

My mind bombarded with decisions to make,
Every day I hope and pray this is a dream, from which I will soon wake.


I think about the times,
when love was good and evil was bad.
I think about the times,
when my heart sang and my mind wandered.

I think about the times,
when my soul held on to dear life,
and my life was a vortex like no other.

I think about the times,
And how they have changed not for the better.
I think about the times,
when a man's word once meant something.

Last night was my poetry reading debut. I have attended many poetry readings but never to perform on stage. It was a mixture of hiaku, original poetry blended with great people who are laid back and great listeners.

I must say it was a night that will not be forgotten. I read two of my original poems,"so insane" and "the politics of me". It was meant to be a five minute set, however my nervousness sort of shortened the set to less than a minute. I spoke clearly but too fast.

In any case, next week I hope the turn out will be better as my performance hopefully will be as well. For all you poetry lovers this is the place to be on a lazy Monday night.

I look in the mirror,
And I begin to quiver.
Gone is my youth,
Its time to face the truth.

The lines so intricate on my face,
Bits and pieces of my past I try to trace.
I have aged on the outside,
But I still dance and laugh inside.

My body is not what it used to be,
Every now and then, my own sight bewilders me.
I am thankful for the time I had,
To watch my life run its course and for that I am glad.

Be kind to mankind,
Open your heart to new experiences.
Love with a burning desire,
Feel without limit or restraint.

Share your knowledge,
Another being will appreciate.
Have mercy and compassion,
Its all for the love of humanity.

Be vigilant but cautious,
Help the helpless without expectations.
Life is too short to worry about regrets,
Give with your heart, not your mind.

My mind engulfed by thoughts of you,
What must I do?
Every day is torture beyond imagination,
I love you with determination.

You don't see me,
I should just let you be.
I will finally say goodbye,
So my heart won't have to die.
