Today is a really special day, do you know why?
Today is the beginning of a new year, where there are many opportunities,
Let the old hurts go, take away the sorrows and wonderful memories and lessons learnt remain,
Gladly we accept the new challenges and face them with strength,
United we stand together, dealing with both good and bad,
And with grace and blessings, we welcome the New Year.
The Creaky Door
Colorful Paints all around Spackled walls like polka dots The fish tank running
The car waiting in the driveway The Furniture still as can be
The Food’s Aroma Traveling Cabinets all around
Blankets like Clouds
The Fire Roaring
The Bed waiting for my arrival The door closing as I step inside.
A small lapse in our dark void of stillness
Was all I needed to ease the heartache.
Or should I be asking for forgiveness?
Was I blind to our own little earthquake?
Too many questions within our blank miles
That only contain our missing pieces.
Black and white covering our fading smiles,
As the bare distance only increases.
We are nothing but an echo of love,
Which I so selfishly thought to be real.
With our lies, I thought we could rise above.
But we crumbled, and I made a big deal.
Why did we crumble, lifeless to the ground
When I didn’t make a single small sound?
The Earth forever rotates
creating golden mornings
and shimmering nights
It never gets a break
spinning, spinning, spinning
day after day
night after night
creating beautiful phenomes
Yet she feels so motionless
Where bees buzz and rivers row
Where frogs leap and sheep roam
Where the breeze is like coming up for air, and the smell of flowers is ripe
Where the goats gloat and fireflies fly
Where stars shine and the moon moves
Where rabbits hop and horses run
Where your alarm beeps and disturbs your sleep
Where you groan and moan
Where you get ready for school
Where you hope you’ll have the same dream tonight.
