Healing In Writing

When I am in sorrow
I write in the tranquility
drowning in my thoughts
but an unfound peace exists

It’s difficult to fathom
I admit I am tired and weak
so I explain it in metaphors
For it’s what I can only give

write, I can see art in my words
I find this creativity amazing
what a beautiful phenomenon
For I admit I am tired and weak

As I confess my flaw and errors
I discover the beauty to it
I write, an instrument of hope
for there is healing in writing

~M. Salonga

Live Leave

I have live
I don’t want to leave
I have dreams
Inside of me
I’ll go after it
I’ll chase after it
But I can’t,
Mr. Anti-dreams
Will get me
Eat me
Kill me
But,
I am a soldier
And a warrior
Fight for it
Go for it
But I can’t,
Mr. Anti-dreams
Will assassinate me
Eradicate me

Annihilate me
But,
I am the leader
And a master
Adjure!
Charge!
But I can’t

Mr. Anti-dreams,
Will take me into hell
Will snatch me into hell
I say
I have a dream
Inside of me
I have not attain it
So I have not live
I am going to leave”
