Chance

Is this the last, my only chance?
Or I will go straight in a trance?
Following norm, I don’t understand
This is totally not what I planned

Refrain 1:
So this is it, a leap of faith
Hoping it will lead me to fate

Chorus 1:
An opportunity awaits
Opening doors, no time to waste
Come on! There’s no need to conform
Bend some rules, let life take its form

Is this the answer to my prayer?
Or just lies that are uncovered?
But this is not what I have asked
Yet I am embracing this task

Repeat Refrain 1 and Chorus 1

So this is where I am headed?
Or is this what I have dreaded?
But whatever, I’ll just proceed
Taking chances – this is my creed

Refrain 2:
So I’m taking a leap of faith
I know this will lead me to fate

Chorus 2:
An opportunity awaits
Embrace it, opening my gates
Let’s take this one and only chance
Let’s fall in love, let’s take a glance

Come on, baby! Let’s take a glance
Yeah, honey! I’m taking my chance
(to fade…)

If I May / Kung Pwede Lang

IMG00351-20130102-1811

Author’s Note: The English poem is a translation of the poem I wrote in my native tongue, Filipino.

If I may, if only I can…
I will put an end to this chapter
Let my spirit and mind wander
To a place where there’s serenity

I dream to no longer be lame
So I could write with liberty
Then create stories and poetry
That would bring inspiration and glee

I want to have a new beginning
And leave behind all my worries
But I know it’s not yet meant to be
If I may, if only I can…

Kung pwede lang, kung kaya ko lang sana…
Tutuldukan ko na itong kabanata
Nang makapaglakbay ang utak at diwa
Patungo kung saan ay mapayapa

Pangarap kong hindi na maging lampa
Nang makapagsulat na ko ng malaya
At bumuo ng mga kwento at mga tula
Na magbibigay inspirasyon at saya

Nais ko na ng panibagong simula
Iwanan na itong mga pangamba
Ngunit alam kong hindi pa nakatakda
Kung pwede lang, kung kaya ko lang sana…

Just Quit

Quit and put an end to it all
Now it’s time to answer the call
Listen to the universe’s cry
All you have to do is to try

Resign and leave it all behind
The purpose of life you will find
Forget your worries, let it be
Do it and it will set you free

Drawn

It’s pulling me into the darkness
It’s dragging me to its nothingness
It’s enveloping me with its wings
An inexplicable force it brings

I tried to struggle, to take control
But its power is strong, it won’t fall
Something magical is taking me on
Repulse no more, I’m being drawn

It’s blackness is showing a new light
It’s delivering me from a plight
I’m enticed by its obscurity
Somehow, it is comforting me
