017. Being a Fan

Life seems unfair
No one knows what will happen
No one can understand how you feel
Only those who can relate to your situation

Seeing them happy bring smiles on your lips
Even though they don’t know that you exist
Even though you can’t understand what they say
Even though they are just your dream

Encouraging words make you determined
Knowing that someone has the same feeling
Knowing that someone has the same goal
Knowing all that gives you hope

But, knowing that you’ll never be with them
Knowing that you will never meet them in the future
Uhh…No
You believe that there is a possibility that you can be with them
You believe that you will meet them
Because you know that nothing is impossible
You know that you are persistent
You know that God has a better plan for you
And you believe that
Even though you’re just a fan

Right.
Everyone expects someone to fit in
Everyone wants everybody to be just like them
Because everyone fears being different
Being isolated
And that’s how the world becomes monotone
Boring.
Everything’s the same
Because nobody wants to be an anomaly
An aberration to society
No one wants to be alone
Sad.
How disappointing
Is this how humans were meant to be?
Acting like a machine following an algorithm
Programmed to behave a certain way

Wrong.
Humans can never be machines
We were given freedom
We were given souls
Choice.
And it takes a brave soul to choose change
To choose being an anomaly
In this monotone society
Someone who is willing to experience hardships
In order to bring color to the world
You.

009. (a reverse poem on love and money)

In our generation now
Love does not exist
I would never admit that
Love
Is more important than
Money
How could anyone think that
Your life won’t be complete
Without love
And always believe that
Love is just a weakness
Don’t ever think
Love is a relief to all your problems
And for the future generations
Wealth is what you need
I won’t consider that
Just wealth and power
Will destroy our lives
Because I don’t think that
Love does exist

Love does exist
Because I don’t think that
Will destroy our lives
Just wealth and power
I won’t consider that
Wealth is what you need
And for the future generations
Love is a relief to all your problems
Don’t ever think
Love is just a weakness
And always believe that
Without love
Your life won’t be complete
How could anyone think that
Money
Is more important than
Love
I would never admit that
Love does not exist
In our generation now

006. (a reverse poem on bullying)

A 13-year-old considers the reality of bullying…

unlethanCTo this

It is reality
standing up for yourself means hitting back
Only cowards can say
violence is never the answer
Know that
fighting back means getting even
I don’t agree that
there is a better way to protect yourself other than to pick a fight
Clearly
bruising someone’s face
is a better way of defending yourself than
using words
Truth is
that a bully has no feelings
It is false judgement
that you can stop being bullied by getting help from others
Acknowledge
that to injure someone for your own sake is ok
Don’t consider
it an option to confront a bully before attacking him
Think
that the only way to stop bullying is by getting revenge
Don’t believe
you can change a bully

To this day, it remains the same, unless someone decides to REVERSE it.

005. Red Roses

red roses edited-001

A bunch of red roses
Shoved at the back of my drawer
A bunch of red roses
Knew everything’s over
This bunch of red roses
Trapped memories in mind
Why trap them?
Simply move on and unwind
This bunch of red roses
Indeed they look lovely
But as time went by
These roses went ugly
A few months have passed now
Forbid myself from crying
It’s not that easy
But the fact is I’m trying
These roses went dry
“In a corner over there
A bunch of dried up roses
From a time you used to care”
