Here is another poem of mine called ‘Try’.

Hello There Folks,

Today I wanted to share another poem I wrote called Try. I can imagine most of you have already experienced hardship and failure but yet you still try, try and try again until you have succeeded.

Experiencing failure or having things go wrong despite how hard you try is a horrible feeling. However, what is most important is continuing to try your hardest even despite all those failures.

Try

No matter how many times life tries to knock me down

I shall stand up and try

No Matter what trials I must face in the future

I shall continue to try

Even if I were to face adversity for things I believe in

I will still TRY

If my hopes and dreams were so easily attainable

Anyone would be able to achieve them

So yes, I shall continue to try

Because life is too short and dreams are too meaningful to just give up  on them half way.

This is such an amazing poem!

Hello Tomodachi’s,

How have you all been this past week? Another week passes again and before we can even blink we will be in July. Heck, before we know it it will already be the end of the year. And to think that the year we began not so long ago is already almost halfway through. It is crazy how quickly the time is flying!  Continue reading

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!

Happy Mother’s Day to mothers all around the world!

Hello Tomodachi’s,

How are you all doing?  Although this post is a little late, it is still Mother’s Day and therefore still relevant. So, Happy Mother’s Day first off to my very own mother, as well as to all those soon-to-be-mothers, new mothers, mothers who have adopted or mothers who have been doing their thang for as long as they can remember.  Continue reading

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
