Not like you

When i become a mom

I would do things out of love

I wouldnt set myself apart

And think of myself highly

When I become a mom

My words will have a value

I would mean what I say

And I would walk my talk

When I become a mom

I will respect my children

As the person they are

and will become

When I become a mom

I will not curse my child

Rebuke them yes

But never curse

When I become a mom

I will appreciate my child

Not just with what they are and can give

But also with what they can’t

And how they strive

When I become a mom

I wont blame my child for every

Wrong thing that happens inside the house

And I will always try to be in their shoes

When I become a mom,

I wont be like you mom

Exhibit A

People go through life

Always searching for their better half

Never has it occurred that

Doing it wasn’t necessary

Radical it may seem but

Everything and everyone for us

Wont ever miss us

And Babe you are my Exhibit A. ❤

Dad

Of all the things I am grateful for, the best one will always be: You were my dad. You weren’t’t perfect, as a person or as a dad. There might be a time I didn’t understand you and thought, “no,you aren’t the best dad in the world!”, but now that I think about it, even at your worst condition you had always understood me. And that because you weren’t perfect, you also didn’t expect me to be. And that might be the best gift that you have ever given me.

Dad, there isn’t a day that I didn’t wish that you’re with me. Especially on days that I feel the most anxious. Especially on days I feel most broken. Dad sometimes it feels like you will be the only one to ever understand me. The one to ever save me. The one to truly calm me. And I really wish you are here dad. I really wish you are here. Even just to talk. Or just to hug.

Dad thank you. Because you weren’t perfect. And yet everything worked out for you. And thank you for you never asking me to be one. But Dad, though you were never perfect, your love for me has been the perfect representation of God’s love and God’s grace.

I love you. And I can’t wait to see you again.

Life has been,

quite overwhelming

The bustle of a day,

like a measured set of strings

One miss,

And your craft is not worth anybody’s ears

 

 

We are like clowns,

Juggling things in circus

One, two, three

That’s easy

Four, Five, Six

I can do this but with sweat tricklin’

Seven, eight,nine, one hundred

Fasten that smile, everyone is watching

Dear A,

Dear A,

We might never know why

We crossed paths,

Why it happened while 

We are on the opposite sides
You came in a time

I wasnt sure what I’m looking

Too jaded to remember 

My made-up prince charming
You got that friendly face

And that dream man attitude

You got that good boy facade

And that irresistable intellectuality
You reminded me 

of my goals

You reminded me 

Not to settle for what is available
You’re my 2017 reminder,

Impossible is not a word

In the Lord’s vocabulary

We might just be two lines crossing

In a lifetime of trajectories

But I must let you know

You are my favorite coordinate

Might it end in tragedy

Today

Today I decided that I wont go to the gym

That I will eat that pint of ice cream

That I will watch and read all those scenes

That I will let myself feel

That I wouldnt think

That I wouldn’t worry

That just for today, I wouldn’t be bothered

That my dreams and goals will still be my dreams and goals

But I’ll just take a step back

Just for today.
