Risen Flags

Our prideEmphatically lies in our strideIt ain’t a lieWhen we say we gonna soar highAnd even though strangled;Keenly we have toiled and struggledWith our flags risenSurely our feat ain’t hidden

Time Counts

We start as fools…And through experience;We become wise You remember when you spent an hour bathing only your stomach?Well, you now know how to shampoo your hair You remember when you put your right foot into the left shoe and vice versa?Well, now you can tie your shoelace I remember when I couldn’t recite the […]

What was sleepWhen talking to you was so much exciting?What was sleepWhen I was going to see you in my dreams anyway?

My LoVEr

The MoonMight not be accompanied by the starsAnd the Ocean will give waves no moreDarkness might not longer be scaryAnd the Thunder may shun the cloudsSouls may depart from their bodiesAnd poets may shy from their lyricsBut believe meEven until then my heart will beatOnly for youAnd my sight may never forget you… ©2021 voice_of_the_pen

REAL DEMONS

Tales of Demons were toldFears got unfoldedDemons talked ofTo have grown in the darknessThen we cursed the nightStoned the antagonism of the nightTo escape from darknessAnd when the day brokeIn essence of diminished demonsHaving blankets untackedWe woke up onlyTo meet the real DemonsHumanity!You!… Me!… Us!… ©2021 voice_of_the_pen

The Smile

Like the winds The smile comes And quickly fades away  But the cause of it stays And I’m more than ready To show That damn smile If it calls for it A million time

I Love You

Yesternight in the cold freezing hour With my own ears I heard such words As loneliness whispered to me I have tasted the poison of absence And suffered from the venom of aloneness Which pleads me not to relate The day has thousand emotions And the night but one Yet the love of the insecure […]

Awoken From The Ashes

Who pulled the gun? Who triggered the trigger? Under the frowns Of a lonely fading moon Who groped my neck? So tight in the darkness That the echoes of my screams Were as silent as a forgotten melody? Who tied at my back, so tightly my hands; Covered my pleading mouth with stretchy fingers, As […]

Faultless

The Ocean, though too vast;Apologies not for its depth.Neither does the mountainSeek forgiveness for the space it takes.So, shall you not be held accountableFor the beauty you possess. Even when none is listening;The birds chirp with joy.Indifferently, the butterfly dancesEven in a state of perplexity.And so, does your smiles appear pricelessEven if it’s a single […]

quote #5

We don’t throw away our little water just because we heard it will be rainingperhaps the giver of rain might have a change of mind at the eleventh hour.Better still, no one kills their first born just because they have in their womb a second. ©2021 VOICE_OF_THE_PEN

love-Phobia

Once I was in love;I was captivated.I liked the feelingHence treasured it in my left lung.Like a dogWailing its tail around the master;I believed the tale of dripping honeyAnd stuck out my tongue.Perhaps; I could lick every bit of it.Not so long;When I realized it was no honey;But falling sharp blades.Made of shining steelThat took […]

quote #4

Once we thirst for honey, then should we not be ready to battle out with the bees who make them?For no one picks fishes at the ocean’s shore…Perhaps if we want to jump higher,then must we squat more;Achievements come with great sacrifices… ©2020 VOICE_OF_THE_PEN

Quote #3

The good we tend to do;The evil we tend to hide;like pregnancy: will in the end show uplike when a fish dies in a pond;what we do, whether hidden or not,Eventually, will show up. ©2020 VOICE_OF_THE_PEN

CRESCENDO

Just who are you?That I can’t take my eyes off you.My heart races at a dangerous pace,I can’t seem to understand in any spaceYour voice triggers my emotions;Making my nerves  cause commotions.I guess you’re a crescendo;Sent above from the supremo..Come take me along,And I’ll sing you a lovely song.Come take my hand,Like kids, let play […]

Unfair

And when our feet hurts because we didn’t wear proper soles, they didn’t even careBut instead beat the hell of our buttto bruise because we were three seconds lateP.k

THE GOOD OLD DAYS

Swept away are the memories of the good old days.In the cold night by the fireside sitting around in circlesTo have an earful of Nana’s talesAs she spat words of the oracles The heavens blessed and washed us with heavy rainsAs we jumped in mud and played in itTo bless our childhood and shower away […]

LET IT SHINE

Something we’ve got inside,That seeks not to hide.That which is buried within us deep inside.In it we’ve got to confide.Trust in that; let it be our pride.Like the smile of the newly wedded bride. This that is buried within is who we areLiving within; thus, how we’ve come by farThis that keeps us, boiling;Perhaps, our […]
