Oh my gosh, I feel it in the air
If only you could know
How long did I bear.
I am so clouded by my mind
Got no time to rest
Maybe this is a summertime sadness.
It Could Have Been Us
If we were meant, there should have been a lot of time
A lot of messages have sent still ends up a sigh
I gave my effort, I gave what is mine
We still have each other, keeping it a joyride.
Why we still bother?
Why we still cling?
Hanging on to each other, this is not even a fling
Now you have to go, should I let it stay?
Should I keep it as a rose?
And let it die in dismay.
I should have been with you drinking with my lies
We should have been together at this time
I should have been with you dancing all night
We could have been together if we tried
Do you remember these hallways?
Do you remember this center stage?
I’m alone in here, questioning my stay.
I made this poem 2 years ago, during alumni homecoming when we met again in those familiar places and smiled like it seemed it was yesterday……..
If only these pimples can say the words unuttered
The sleepless nights and the problems I encountered
Then all will be gone, easily recovered
The pains that I badly suffered..
keep the legacy on
with new companions
but with each other,
we are a champion.

A SUMMER TO REMEMBER
Born This Way Ball was the night of my life
Words can’t describe what I really feel inside
My artistic dreams came true for just one night
Pushing boundaries of acceptance, fighting for what is right.
I’m finding the right words but I’m full of emotions
My biggest dream just came true
There are more goals + dreams to dream on
Just believe, let it flow and let it all through
Through all the years I have lived my life
Keeping it true is what I am quite
Of all the things that brings me inside
I long for freedom, for me to be alive
The force that is controlling me
The fear that is keeping me lonely
Why can’t I be who I want to be?
The unknown reason, why can’t it be?
Time is wasted and courage is erased
They support me all through the way
And in the end many will be dismayed
Then I’ll be the one to slap my own face.
Liberty is just in my darkness
And freedom is found in my emptiness
And every day I wear my jeans
I AM MY HAIR!! Everyday, silently I scream.

At the dawn of resurrection
We greeted Happy Easter
Then the sun comes up
And home is all I remember
People here are in luck
Blessed to have them their family
While I am here getting stuck
Murmuring in jealousy.
Why I am here again?
Remind me why I am away?
It was just bearable
But I felt my longing is different today
Even a text message couldn’t make it change.
Maybe I’ll just go back to sleep
And dream celebrating with them
I just wipe up this mess
Hoping I will get up again.
The Playlist of His Life (Happy Birthday)
That Kenwood speakers blows when I’m awake
It has been here for over a decade
Like your music that lingered in this place
It plays through my life and through your ages.
The classic songs that guides through life
It inspires you what you’ll tell me deep inside
We talked together in this beautiful night
While mama is watching you, smirking in delight.
I will float with your music
To open the gates from the sky
With you singing those words no one can even defy
Teaching me your ways from the playlist of your life.
With a bottle of beer and mama in our side.
We stayed together, we stayed all night
You gave me your words and your wisdom
Teaching me not to give up in my life
You gave me inspiration to what I will become.
This is what you say, this is what you do
You are what you say and I’m here to love you
This is your playlist and this is your life
I’m here to keep it as the guide to my life.
