Although it has been quite a while, here is another poem.

Konnichiwa Tomodachi’s,

How are you all? are you melting as much as I am in this heat?! Today is ridiculously HOT!!! I AM PRACTICALLY DYING! I do appreciate the warmer weather and do not want to seem ungrateful especially considering how cold it was in the winter… but DAMN! This sweltering heat is seriously drying me out!

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.”

Challenge accepted!

Hey, you lovely folks. These past few days I have been feeling a little irritable but every day cannot be sunshine and roses, right?

Anyway, on Sunday I was told by my singing coach to write a spoken word poem because he though it would help me with practicing how to sing properly. However, the problem (well, not really a probem) is I have never written a spoken word poem before. I have no experience in this area but I still took the challenge for myself. I have read a couple of my poems when I record myself on camera, but that is nothing compared to spoken word, so this was sort of a new area for me.

I never said I could not write it but I just never tried. It never crossed my mind before to try even though I have posted many spoken word poems on my blog before. Within less than a day my poem somewhat completed. This morning I sent my spoken word poem voice recording to some friends asking for their  feedback. Although, I have never had explicit content in any of my writings, this piece called for it and it might be a smidge explicit for some. So be Warned.

I do intend to share this spoken word one of these days but not at this moment. Once I have perfected it I might share it later.

Well, that is all for today, folks. Have a great day and see you all next time.

WritingRelatedFridays: Women who dress a certain way are “Asking for it”

Hello, everyone! Having a great day? Me, too. 🙂

Apparently, there are some people claiming women who dress a certain way are “asking for it”.  I can never understand this whenever I hear people saying such things. They even have the nerve to say that when it is a young and innocent child being sexual abuse or accosted.

It does not matter whether a woman is fully clothed or not, they still get attacked and it is still her fault. It seems no matter what a woman wears or does it is always going to be her fault for: Continue reading

WritingRelatedFridays: A nameless poem by a good friend.

Hello, everyone. It is Friday and the end of another tiring week, once again! Oh, how the times fly…

Today is my Writing Related Fridays and I bring you a poem a good Dutch friend of mine wrote quite some time ago. He is by no means a poet but inspiration blessed him one day and he wrote this poem, that does not even have a title. 😛 Continue reading
