A Year Ago

A year ago, 8 pounds of delight arrived
Wrapped with innocence, she made us feel alive
Bundled with pure smile, she marked a beginning
Of new inspiration, purpose and meaning

A year ago, a present came from above
A 20 inch gift swaddled with joy and love
A blessing that will forever be treasured
A real happiness that cannot be measured

A year ago, Alisha Nini was born
My life’s been better, it will never be scorned
Our baby, you always make things beautiful
And to God, I’ll be eternally grateful

Defeated

I fell and I stumbled
I was down, I was troubled
I can’t pick myself up
There was no way to get up
No strength to even try
And all I could do was cry
From despair, from anger
For not having the power
To control my dumb mind
Then command the brain to find
The love and the passion
To seek a motivation
But I only faltered
To defeat, I surrendered

I Am Here

Why are you scared, my dear?
It’s a new world, I know
I’m beside you, I’m here
I won’t leave, I won’t go
And I promise you…

Chorus 1:
I will never leave you
I am just here
I’ll forever hold you
Locked in my embrace

Or you can take my hand
I’ll wipe away your tears
Then together we’ll stand
Let’s drive away your fears
And I promise you…

Chorus 2:
I will never leave you
I am just here
You are always safe here
Here in my arms

You are always safe here
Here in my arms…

One With God

When the blue sky is turning into gray
I get lost, always searching for answers
When things get tough and not going my way
It’s the time to pause and say my prayers

When I lose grip on things I can’t control
I question how and why it’s so unjust
I feel I’m farther away from my goal
But I try to let go and put my trust

I rely on the miracle from above
Where I can’t be ignored, I am not odd
And it is all about faith, hope, and love
Then I try, I aim to be one with God

One With Darkness

The moon is full, it is shining
A feast, a celebration of life
I am in awe, it’s enlightening
As the night washes away the strife

As I look up, my soul rejoices
I see the stars engulf the black skies
I feel the evening’s warmth caresses
But it’s missing a pure sacrifice

My shadow dances with the moonlight
In anticipation of greatness
And as the light fades into the night
‎I will be one with the darkness

Traveling To A Blurred Destiny

A crossroad? No! I can’t even see a road
It is being in the woods with a blind fold
I’m totally lost, wandering the unknown
Just trusting my senses to lead me to you

And I keep stumbling, falling into the pit
Picking myself up gets harder and harder
But I try to follow the sound of your voice
‎It’s my only guide in this bleak surrounding

As I open my eyes with hope to see clearly
There’s a fog, it’s enveloping the horizon
And all I can do is to pray, to listen
Then continue this journey with only faith…

I’m still stuck somewhere in the woods, in the pit
It’s unlikely I’ll figure my way out soon
But as long as I hear your voice, calling me
I know I’m in the path towards my destiny

Writing Struggle

It’s not that I don’t have any inspiration
But I am always left with so much distraction
Left and right, up and down, all I see is confusion
Look around and I can’t find my concentration

Maybe I’m stuck with no more creativity
My mind wanders but it’s the same activity
I try to focus but I’m hit with anxiety
‎More of this and it will be my fallibility

And it’s becoming the epitome of puzzles
I try hard but I still don’t know how to tackle
I guess there are some things that I cannot handle
Just have to accept this is an endless struggle
