Addiction

Do you know the feeling of trying to stop an addiction
That something or someone that you thought
You can not live a day without
When every morning or evening
You tried to squeeze that momentary happiness
Even if you get late to your work or school
Even if you tried to avoid talking with friends
Just to enjoy that addiction
Even if you start getting financial troubles about it
Even if you feel that it is wrong
Somehow being happy having it
Makes it right, right?
Didnt somebody said before that the biggest goal in life is to do what makes you happy
Then this addiction is correctly justified

However, I noticed the guilt
I noticed the number of hours wasted with this momentary happiness
Because it doesn’t make me better
I already reached the epitome
And no matter how hard I tried to have another kind
Of happiness with it, is already useless
I already abused my addiction
To the point I am no longer excited
I can no longer feel the euphoria
But still I am in denial
I tried to squeeze it still
Still I am late
Still I am a loner
Still I am in debt
Sigh, what is the benefit of addiction
When it no longer let me escape in my reality.

Bright vs Dim

Lately I have been thinking
How good it is to escape
From all the anxieties
That I tried to see
The overview of my life

Lately I have been thinking
If I continue to follow
The dim-light straight road
Or try the brighter curved road

Maybe because of the wariness
And the wishfulness of something new
A temporary bumpy road
Against the painstaking pitfalls
Of following the right direction

But in the end, as I look at it
On a bird’s eyeview
On the straight road
I can see a concrete destination
Against the unknown

Fog in your windows

There will come a time that your vision will get blurry
A time when you tried to look on your left or on your right
A mist of indecisiveness keeping you at bay
The uncertainties make you worry

Keep your mind at peace
Make your heart at ease
Rest your body
Pray for your soul’s clarity
And remember to look at your center

Remember your reason of living
The passion that is fulfilling
The love obtain from giving and receiving
And lifting them to God above all else
Because amidst the blurry vision along the sidelines
There is a clear motivation in your heart
And from there the beauty starts

I think I have..

​I think I have told you

So many times

Not to give up

Pursue

Persevere

Be determined

Use your strong will

Think of the end goals all the time
I think I have told you 

So many times

That in every bruise

In every wound

In every scar

Its time to get up

Push forward 

And look on what is infront of you
I think I have told you

So many times

Not to look backward

Falter and downward

Spiraling to the abyss

Of self pity and hopelessness

I think I did because I care

And wanted the best of you.

I think I have..

Resolve

​With the sound of the wind

With the fluttering of the leaves

The cold night under the dark umbrella of the sky

I shuddered and look far away

I left my own tribe

I left my past for freedom

The struggling pain

The fear in my heart

The everyday whisper of unloved,

Rejection and abused

I left the life I had for so long

I can not foresee a future without

The everyday struggle I had

But I know I need to leave them behind

I know even with all the torments

The beating of the walls of my room

I know this is not my dwelling place

I do not belong anymore in this place

I can not fit myself in this life

I need to continue moving away

I need to look forward 

Even if my feet got wounded with the rocky road

Even if I bleed and be in more pain

I need to leave

I need to turn my back

If needed, I will jump on this cliff

And swim away

I can not be here anymore

I can not leave the remaining years of my life

In the darkness

In the howling of the wolves who want to devour me

In the dances of my tribesmen who only mock me

I need to run away

I need to stop thinking about going back

I need to believe that there is something better

Somewhere there are people who will accept me

Somewhere that if I reach my hand

There will be someone who will hold it and pull me up

Away from this place

Away from this nothingness

To the brighter place

To the fullness of life.

I might not talk to you again

​Do you know the feeling 

Of liking one of your friends

To the point that you are day dreaming

And his name is always on your lips?
The happiness when you both joke around

Or whispering to each other

Like there is a secret between you two

You might already have an eye language
Then there are light skinships

A tap on the shoulder

Or your arms brush to each other

To the point you want to hug
But then I need to stop

I need to stop looking forward

To the talks or the laughters

To the hands I want to hold
I need to stop daydreaming

Coz its different with reality

I stopped…

It took small steps until I realized..
I realized we are no longer talking to each other

We are no longer whispering small secrets

We do not even go near each other

Or seeing eye to eye
I then noticed how I miss you

And whenever I see your back

I want to hug you tight

But I stopped
And I might not talk to you again…

Fake

I read before about people online
I read before that there is an increase
Of people who are posers or ghosts

I loved being online before
I loved talking to people in this digital world
I loved it but now…

I retreated to my own shell again
I retreated because there is an increase
Of people who posed or ghosted on me

I now wonder what did I expect
I now wonder what matters most
Because I feel everything is fake
