A year older and hopefully a year wiser…

Hello, hello, hello Tomodachi’s!

I know it has been quite a while since I last posted anything on my blog and I am sorry for that, but I just needed some time to myself. A couple of stressful things had been going on in my life that I kind of needed to sort out and come to terms with but life goes on nonetheless.

On this blessed Friday evening, I make 27 years old and as I get older I do hope I also get wiser because no one wants to be around and an old fool… That was a joke… You can laugh now. Lol

Anyway, on this day after not blogging for quite some time, I leave you all with a poem called ‘No Money’ because one way or another we have all been through this (situation). Enjoy!

No money

God only knows

How many times I’ve uttered those words:

“Sorry, I’ve got no money

Sorry, I’ve got no money

Sorry I’ve got no MONEY.”

 

With hands buried deep in my pockets

Forming into fists

I utter these disgraceful words

That chain me down like a prisoner.

Before, I used to fight against these chains

Like a stubborn mule fighting against the pull of its owner

But now I just give in

Because at this moment, there is just no helping it.

 

As someone gleeful comes and asks me

To ‘join them’ in eating, playing or traveling

Before their long winding requests and desires can leave their lips

I can already hear myself uttering those disgraceful words

“Sorry I’ve got no money.”

 

I utter these words not only in shame

But also in pity because of my helplessness:

Sorry I’ve got no money

Sorry I’ve got no money

Sorry I’ve got no money…

 

However, though for now all I can say is: “Sorry I’ve got no money”

I am building myself and working towards that day

Where I can confidently say: “Yes, let’s go. I’ve got money.”

Hey, You, Young Women of the World!

Hello again Tomodachi’s,

Apologies, apologies, apologies. Though this blog post is coming MUCH later (a day later in fact) than I was expecting to post it, but as promised, here it is. On my Monday’s blog post I spoke about me presenting a spoken word poem on stage at the Hostel Rooms on Sunday evening. The poem is called Hey, You, Young Women of the World. When you read the poem below you will be able to interpret the poem the way you want to interpret it. It is alright to debate on what it means to you or how you interpreted it. Continue reading

I wrote my first Haiku!… I think

Hello, everyone and good afternoon to you all! I hope you are as happy as I am right now.  I am especially happy today because I had more people commenting on my posts than ever before. It was a nice feeling to see what others were thinking and seeing them express their experiences. Thank you all for your comments. You surely made my day. Continue reading

Another Poetry and Music

Hello, everyone. I bring you another Sound Cloud poetry reading I like to call Poetry and Music. I posted my first Poetry and Music reading about three to four weeks ago and thought it has been long enough for me to do another reading.

Although the poem I am reading, Friend…less, has already been posted on my blog some time ago, I decided to do a reading alongside music that I thought best fit with my poem. This poem can also be found in my published poetry book, I’m Only Human. I hope you liked it and I will see you all again next time. Take care.

 

Valley of Tears

Bon Dia, readers! It just occurred to me that I have been posting less and less of my own poems and writing on my blog, although that was my initial intentions when I first created my blog. Well these things happen sometimes…

Anyway, today I just wanted to try something slightly different than usual, as you will see if you click on the link below. Today’s Writing Related Friday’s post is a short poem I completed a couple of weeks ago. It started with me writing only one sentence of the poem some months back, but at the time I could not think of anything else to write to complete it. I just did not know what else to write during that time. I can imagine that sort of thing could happen to the best of us.

However, I finally managed to complete the rest of the poem about a month ago which made me really happy and I have been wanted to share it with you all for a while now. If you do not mind could you also like and please let me know what you think of it? I would be more than happy to read your comments in the comment section below. Take care and have a nice day, until my next post. 🙂

Valley of Tears

In this world, I am quite lonely,

But I wonder if you would even care?

As I wallow in my sadness,

And wallow in my despair,

I do not ask for your pity,

That I would not be able to bear,

I only ask of you to please, don’t let me drown

In this never-ending valley of tears.
