Sunday Writing Prompt, July 18/21 – The Quiet One

Everything I never told you
Because of imminent danger
Mincing my word before adieu
Till light comes to dawn in manger

From the roots and branches
The rhythm of life comes alive
Bringing challenge and hope
Testing our inner strength
Until we give in and crack
Lick our wounds and fight

As we’re not all entertainers
A single wish might carry through
We should widen our field of view
Perhaps we could hug a stranger

Secrets, lies and treachery
Causing pain and troubles
Help us learn our lessons
Change the manouver
Change the tactics
Make us stronger somehow

Sa mundong ito
Kailangan maging matapang
(In this world
We need to be strong)*

* La’libertas

My heart and other black holes
Aching in the twilight, enduring the grief
Crushing my life, stealing my hope to my disbelief
Now trying to forget, subtle atonement of my soul

Contained toughness in my head, that is my goal
No sour grapes, no regrets for that is my brief
My heart and other black holes
Aching in the twilight, enduring the grief

I want to move on and back in control
To climb up mountains, swim in the reef
To forgive, to forget, holding the fig leaf
In time feeling again that I am whole
My heart and other black holes**

** Rondel
