Navigate the ups and downsThe roller-coaster of life,Avoid the world's clownsFight and come out alive.External annoyancesOr internal conflicts,All sides come the forcesJust deliver life's scripts.Tai chi them far awayBrush off with my hand,Don't let...

Golden Wedding

These fifty years past,You were a faithful wife.Never dared I dream we would last,Now, I say we have a memorable life. Ours was an arrangement,Made when I was four and you, two.There was a little payment,Twenty years on, all went through. I was rathe...

Honeymoon

We’re on our honeymoon,Only the second day or so.It won’t end so soon,There are twenty more to go.Here in the City of Love,Where each experience is new,We bought, then released a dove,For what purpose, no one knew.Sure is refreshing to shareIntimate...

Writer’s Block

29 Nov 2021 1 minute read 0 comments emily2u

Words cannot flow smoothly,There’s a blockage in my line of thought.Like an old pen without much ink,My writing is barely legible.I wish I’m understoodIn poetry, sonnets, or even plays.A modern-day Shakespeare I want to be,Well-known beyond my lifeti...

Everywhere, people chant your name,When they see you in action;Elevating the level of each game,In charge of the central position.You’re a very important person,The team can’t do without.To retain you is many a reason,It’s worth every cent, no doubt....

Yes-man

You’ve no backbone,Yet you’re not alone.There’s a name for people like these,Who are totally unscrupulous.No command is too frivolous,To society, you’re a disease.You’re what we call a yes-man,To your boss who’s a powerful man.You willingly agree to...

Ultra Sensitive

Don’t be ultra sensitive,This attitude won’t get you far,Coupled with outlook so negative;Intellectually, you’re up to par. Be more thick-skinned,Do take my advice.Dump faults into the recycle bin,It’s not really a vice.If you’re open-minded,You’ll b...

Trouble

I can smell trouble,It’s thick in the air.In town is a rumble,To step out, I don’t dare. Been going on for a week,Luckless ones are killed.Some were injured, now weak,The river is blood-filled. Something fanned the spark,Became an uncontrollable fire...

It's time to listen to your heartTo do what you have wanted,All this while but haven'tBefore it's too late for anything.Don't delay any longerAs you need to live for yourself,And not for others who wantYou do to stuff that you dislike.No point wastin...
