be you, for you

Picture from Brian Ford
you are a work in progress
everybody makes mistakes
if you failed today
try again tomorrow

keep working on yourself
be the best version of yourself
for you, not someone else

only you who can pull you out of the bottomless pit of your own thoughts
only you who can fight your own battles in your mind
only you who can be your strongest stronghold against your own struggles

should i turned?

This is a piece in response to Weekly Prompt.

i was walking aimlessly 
and had been in deep thought
without any sense of time

in front of a fork in the road
i was standing with a vacant stare
a fierce strife started in my head

i wonder

should i turned right?
‘cause nothing left for me
should i turned left?
‘cause nothing feels right anymore

the road

Here’s my response to #CrimsonsCreativeChallenge159 host by Crispina.

And also to join Dversepoets.

the wind blew softly 
you tucked a strain of my hair
behind my right ear

you believed that every girl
deserve to be treated right

you always come up with a way
that made me feel like i’m the luckiest girl alive

walking side by side
hand in hand along the road
the one that we passed since our school days
filled with our young and dumb youth memories

our friends said they saw you in a bar
with a new girl in your arm

i told them i knew

i saw you two walked down the very same road we used to strolled together

does it remind you of me?

The Forgotten Throne

Crispina is the host for Crimson’s creative challenge #158.

Seated high in the nine heavens
Ruling over the earth

Majestic but filled with bloods
Humans endless greeds
For power, pride and validation
They’d do anything
Even the preposterous one

But now,
The throne is left behind
Alone in the middle of nowhere

Dusty and rusty
Surrounded by nothing but emptiness

Key to Her Heart

Sadje is the host for #WhatDoYouSee challenge. It’s been a while since the last time I join this. I hope you enjoy my poem.

A girl who was once a fool
She gave the key to her heart so easily
For anyone who gave her a bit of attention
Maybe because of the lack of affection she received
Maybe because she lost a father figure Maybe because she’d been never good enough for her mother

A girl who was once a fool
Now locked the door
And kept the key hanging
Waiting for the right person to open it again

Blue Sky

It’s my first time join in weeklyprompt, Weekly Prompt – Colour Challenge Blue

Taken by me

The first thing that came to my mind when I heard the word blue is sky. Well, sometimes it gets cloudy and stormy. But when the sky is clear and blue, it could be comforting for some reasons.

Taken by my friend

Whenever I have a bad day, I like to look up at the sky. Just sat down and tilt my head up, admiring the nature. It’s been one of my favorite healing therapy.

Chasing The Night

Eugi is the host for this prompt. I’m gonna write a poem as usual. I don’t know, I think it’s easier for me to write a response to any prompt with a poetry. Let me know what do you think about it in the comment section below. Thank you and hope you enjoy 🙂

Picture from Eugi’s Prompt

Chasing the Night

Wheeling around the moon

Round and round we go

You, me and the wheel

Chasing the night

Make friends with the scary monsters

Embrace our fears

No more running from the past

But wheeling together to the future

Love Like A Tree – Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

In response to Eugi’s weekly prompt, I’m gonna write a piece about tree once again.

In the previous post, I viewed myself as the tree itself, meanwhile I’ll write about how love should be like a tree.

This piece was inspired by the song ‘Never Break‘ by John Legend.

You can check out my previous post here.

Enjoy!

Love Like A Tree

Rooted in one place

For eternity

As its grow higher

And higher

The wind’s blow

Will become stronger

Thunder and storm

Will be more frightening

Yet it will never break

For its foundation was solid

Built on the ground

Nourished with compassion

Nurture with gentle care

Thus the love

Will sprout formidably

Wish of a Tree

I’m gonna submit a piece for another picture prompt held by Glen.

For these past weeks, I was unable to write a proper post, not even one. And it frustrates me even more because I have so many ideas in my head, yet I couldn’t pour it out appropriately.

Just like the tree on the picture below, it felt like I was chained down and trapped inside an infinite abyss.

Thank you, Glen. This wonderful picture truly evokes my spirit back.

So, this is the post for the last day of August. I hope I could write more in September.

Wish of a Tree

I dreamt of reaching the sky

Yearned for a pair of wings

Wished to fly freely

Like those birds

Nested on my branches

Sadly, I was made to be grounded

My roots run deeply in the soil

 

I dreamt of reaching the sky

Wondered how it feels like to touch the stars

I heard that the world is vast and beyond

How does it feel to liberally roaming around?

What a pity!

I couldn’t even walk on earth

For my legs have been chained down by mother nature
