I Lost My Dad


With a deep heart of sorrow, I wish to announce to you that, I’m bereaved.
I lost my all-in-one dad and burial schedule will be communicated later.
So sad šŸ˜¦

Be My Love


Will you ever be my lover?
I’m just a simple straight boy
I play nothing undercover
Promise all thing except nothing

With the hope that is in me
If all they tell me is true
Paradise is where we ought to be
And no stress we’ll pass through

I put it up in you all my love
You hold me with all thyself
With no work in the wharf
We swim all day loving ourselves

Allow me give it all to you
Putting you up for the world to see
The things that a love can do
Dining both on land and in the sea

All wants and needs will be yours
Both home and in sojourn
No time shall you knock on the doors
All ways are open with your hand

You promise to keep me high
Even with the little I have
Keep your promise so it won’t be lie
‘Cause my trust I sold to you

The Dog and the Cat


I forgot that the Dog and the Cat cannot stay together without a spat!

I saw the dog and the cat
Both sitting gently on the mat
Hearing the cat miaowing
I know its happening
Maybe there must have been a spat

Coming out of the house with my hat
I saw the dog lying flat on the mat
Struggling to make a run
When the cat has no gun
But the dog is bigger in terms of fat

Then I realise strength is not how big
Because the cat might have given a kick
Right on the dog’s back
We saw it as a pat
Which makes the dog want to take a leak

Then I throw my hat on the cat
While the dog run and keeps the bark
That was just a wonder
That makes me to ponder
Then I conclude, the cat is a brat

Wicked Love


Here I am half-smiling
With all the bruise in my heart
Caused by a loving lady
Just for despising her power of harm

She throw me off balanced
Giving me a new stage of life
I always will have a multi-stage
Cos adaptation is the key

I adopt uniformitarianism
So I can fail her deadly wish
Of making me meander with loops
Trying to keep the flow steady
Leaving her with disappointments

She broke the mirror
Forgetting that isn’t my face
And even on the broken mirror
I still look handsome
Cos I left the old stage behind

Lacking Courage


Still in my world
My world of segregation
Thinking aloud
Without my knowledge
Saying I’m so separated
From the world of others

Here a crippled man
Sitting besides me
Just murmur out some words
Saying if he had what i have
The world would have been his

But here I am
With all it takes physically
Talking nonsense to his ears
Lamenting for my inability
To do what I can
Just lacking courage

I left with tears
Rolling down my cheeks
For my inability
To recognise me
But someone out there
Knows me than I do

Am I a cow?
That knows it
Tail validity
When it loses it?

Planning First


Waking up in the morning
I see the bright new day
Yesterday plans on my mind
Cos I need not let myself astray

To meet up with my daily plans
Here I have to walk away
Leaving other things behind
Pretending as if I won’t dare

My ignorance I take as a bliss
Feeling sorry for all my mistake
Lack of knowledge might have cause it
All the punishment you give, I’ll take

Please temper justice with mercy
All my works is to build our future
So we can smile then till eternity
Leaving behind all the rules of nature

No one else can share in my love for you
Not even my work can distract me
Ignoring you just to build our paradise
So then we can go there to be

In A Far Horizon


Looking into the world
With my small senses
I fell much than I see
That questions keep arising
Cos things seems bigger
While i feel smaller
Separating me apart
Into a far away horizon
From what is happening around
Leaving me with no interaction
With the within environs

Now how do i answer this?
How do I relate with the environs?
For in this realm i belong
I feel so lonely and shameful
With all the questions arising
Everyday I can’t answer
