The Falling Tree

The tree that is my life holds
so many branches I cannot lift
so many leaves I cannot count
so many scars I cannot heal

The tree that is my life endures
so many storms I cannot evade
so many dry roots I cannot nourish
so many winters I cannot bare

The tree that is my life survives
so many birds will find a home
so many sunsets I will enjoy
so many years I will live on

TBT: I See The Complexity (2001)

I see the complexity
My life throws at me
With high reliability
And infinity

I hear the fascination
My life knows the obsession
With high depression
And originality

Lasting Impression

Whatever you want me to see
That can change mistakes of my past
I may not fully understand it all
But if I must only look, I can do that

Whatever you want me to feel
That can change decisions of my future
I may not fully accept it all
But if I must only believe, I can do that

TBT: Yield (2012)

The eyes recognize
All the fantasies
The heart
Never wants to realize
You can explain
In vain
What the mind
Tries to hide
It won't be convinced
Unless you touch it
With your tears
With your fears-
You can explain
In vain
What the soul
Tries to preach
The heart
Never wanted to believe
All the fantasies
The eyes conceived

As I start
To explore my downfall
I have no idea
What I did wrong
What I thought
What I felt
How come
I couldn’t be strong

As I feel
Like I’m crawling
While everyone else
Speeds around me
What if I’m lost
What if I’m stuck
How come
I can’t be free

TBT: Fleeting Guardian (2003)

As I saw you passing by
I felt you had great power over me
Yet, I was but a stranger to you
Your gaze never stopped to ponder
The effects your eyes had on my soul
And how close you were
To holding my life in your hands

As I saw you leaving
I felt I had a destiny I didn't fulfill
Yet, I was but a stranger to you
My gaze never stopped to wonder
The emptiness I now felt in my heart
And how close I was
To giving my life to your faith

She promised
She would never
Do that again-
She is slowly
Tearing me asunder
Piece by piece

He promised
He would never
Forget that again-
He is slowly
Repeating my blunders
One by one

TBT: So, Wait (2008)

are you going to tell me
the rest of the story?
I've been waiting for you
to tell me a lie
I'm not exactly sure what happened
Or why you've decided
I'm not worthy of the truth
But I still want to listen to your story
Maybe I'll find something
I've been missing,

I should have said sorry
when you first spoke to me
I've been praying for you
to look me in the eye
I'm not exactly an angel
But why have you decided
I'm not worthy of your respect
Or you still want to believe I'm free
Maybe you'll leave me again
What do you want me to do,
