Because Valentine’s Day Deserves A Chance

“Valentine’s Day” by LINKIN PARK

Remember when we were younger, and during Valentine’s Day we make hearts cut from red art paper. Then we would scribble something on the heart. Messages of “I love you Mom” or “You’re my number Dad” would be written on it. We had no knowledge about love back then. Our love was our family and favorite toys.

But we grow up.

We had our first crush. The fastest runner in class. The most intelligent guy in class. The aloof guy in class. Or even a crush on our teachers. We make cut-out hearts but we never give it to them.

A few more years past and now we know how to flirt and hang-out with guys. Sooner or later, we had the taste of first kiss.

Lucky for others. Hopeless for some.

Not all can afford to be romantic. Some of us had our own share of waiting. Not all of us were able to flirt with guys. Not all of us were able to hang out with guys. No first dates. No first kiss. No first boyfriend.

All the time, just watching other girls change their boyfriends like they were clothes. All the time, just watching guys drink their heartaches away. All the time, just waiting.

Yet, hoping, that this Valentine’s day something will happen. Maybe in the coffee shop. Maybe in the book store. Maybe in the library. Or maybe in a dream.

Random Words My Thoughts Formed: Little Prince

Deep inside where the stars align
Stands a prince
Pure of innocence
In a place where chaos lives
He breathes a life
Of wonderful words
Look at those eyes
Nothing to see here, Prince
Where is the light?
You ask
To guide a little prince
Ask him a question
But the words he speak
Tells the truth
Beyond lies we know
What we have forgotten
He remembers still
Give him a drink
A long sip of longing
Where he came
He won’t go back

P.S. I read the book The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry just recently. It was a good book, but it was really not intended for children. I was so inspired by the book I had the motivation to write a simple poem.

Random Words My Thoughts Formed: Who We Are

We are who we are
We made it this far
How was it possible?
But we don’t care
Let them judge, grudge
Deny the truth
That we are better
Now that we’re together
A new journey starts
We must say unexpected
To live a dream of yesterday
Now we make a legacy
We will make it to the end
They were wrong
We prove we are strong
This is who we are
Who we are, who we are
Is all that matters

Random Words My Thoughts Formed: Message to Bullies

I’ll get up one day
To show you what your words meant
That nothing you say
Would make me lesser than you

Ugly, pretty face
Weak, big baby
Stupid, four-eyes
Tell me more my friend
Saying these won’t make
You better than who I am

You get your pleasure
From my pain
But just because I cry
Doesn’t make you higher
Nor victorious

All along, you were weaker
Afraid to be called
By the names you made

Skinny, fat boy
Black, freckle face
Chicken, wanna-be
Laugh your hardest now
If it makes you feel happy
Then I’ll let you

I won’t hate you
Even with all these stabs
I got
You already have enough
Hatred kept inside you

But one day
When I get to finally stand
I’ll look over
To where you are
And show you

Ugly, weak, stupid,
Skinny, black, chicken
Are all people
You once hated
But didn’t hurt a bit

If it’s about hatred
and hurting
You want to hide from
Who else could listen
Other than the people
Who’d been your victims

We could all be here
Lend our ears
And share something
You never had
Love is never short
If you lose your hatred

Random Words My Thoughts Formed: Lights

Turn on the lights
I’m listening to the radio
Light up the night
One more day with you

One beat up
To the day we met
This love can’t stop
The rhythm of the night

Left step to a beat
You turn away from me
Burning up the heat
‘Coz today I’m free

Turn on the lights
We celebrate tonight
Mixing shades of white
I watch the world ignite

Random Words My Thoughts Formed: Color Me White

A pure stain of innocence
The desire for light
Reaching inside me
Color me white

Holy is the purest
Shades of equal balance
To hail these eyes
I am the shade of
White

See this path I walk
Full of thorns but no hate
I lift my hands
As the lightning strikes
White

No depth of darkness
No spots to blame
These hands I close them
Not clean they are but
White

Random Thoughts My Thoughts Formed: Lights

Turn on the lights
I’m listening to the radio
Light up the night
One more day with you

One beat up
To the day we met
This love can’t stop
The rhythm of the night

Left step to a beat
You turn away from me
Burning up the heat
Coz today I’m free

Turn on the lights
We celebrate tonight
Mixhing shades of white
We watch the world ignite
