To Our Little One

Capture

Writer’s Note: I’ve given birth about 3 weeks ago; this poem was when I was about 5 months pregnant. The sonogram was when she was about 9-week old in my tummy. It’s amazing how a baby, even if he/she hasn’t been born yet, can affect the parents’ lives!

You brighten up our world, putting a smile to my face
I look forward to each day as you put me in a place
Where everything is beautiful and all is positive
Where frustrations are forgotten, now with new perspective

We’ve wanted to see each glimpse of how you are growing
And feel each little move you make and all the kicking
It’s uncomfortable but it’s a wonderful state
This feeling, it’s definitely strange yet it’s so great

We’re giving you life but you give our lives a new meaning
We’re so excited for you and experience your blessing
Four more months before you join your mommy and daddy
For now, just focus on being well, our little baby

Drought (Part 4)

Lost in a world with too many people
Too many things going on
My mind has been preoccupied
Resulting in not knowing what I want
Confused as to what I need
I am seemingly lost in this void
Overwhelmed by this busy crowd
So how can I make amends?
Take charge of my destiny?
Gain a different perspective?
When all I have is my pen
And I am gradually losing my wit
How do I focus to the things that matter?
How do I ignore all the noise?
Then it just dawned on me…
All I need is my pen and a little bit of wit!
Just start writing whatever, whenever
Then just have a little faith and believe
I will soon overcome this drought
Its end is near

Drought (Part 2)

I always need a validation
Telling myself this is my passion
But I’m stuck, I feel I’m not growing
Did I reach my peak now I’m descending?

And now I’m back again to nowhere
Just scrambling, looking to find whatever
I hope it’s just a phase to something new
‎A great inspiration that’s being brewed

So how do I keep on believing?
Keep the faith, stop myself from falling?
Refuel my mind, my heart, my soul?
When all my fears are eating me whole…

To Write

It’s to write about what’s underneath
Then go beyond what lies beneath
Discover the beauty from within
See the light that’s illuminating
To find all the inspiration
Which will uncover all emotions
The passion that’s been long missing
Will soon emerge in the offing
Then dream about the freedom to write
Regardless if it is wrong or right
For it’s to write about anything
Because writing is the only thing

Where To Find Inspiration

Where do I find the inspiration to write
To get me through this, to help me survive
What should I do to make everything all right
To remind me I’m still breathing, still alive

Let’s turn back time and collect my shattered wit
Hopefully, I’ll figure out the correct math
This time I’ll let things flow, I won’t throw a fit
Then pave the way towards my enlightened path

Where do I find the inspiration to write
I looked everywhere, even traveled the past
But all is blur and I still have no insight
So here’s to just believing, this too, shall pass

Fly High / Swim Hard

When all is lost and there’s nothing to gain
Look for a rainbow hiding behind the clouds
Then open your wings, take a leap and be free
Then fly… fly high to be closer to the dream

It is about choice though it’s not as plain
But remove all doubts, be brave and be proud
Then open your eyes to finally see
Then fly… fly high until you reach the dream

When it’s not what you planned and life’s a pain
Find the shore where there’s a welcoming crowd
Then take a deep breath, dive into the sea
Then swim… swim hard towards the flow of stream

Sometimes it’s fine to deviate from the train
Listen to your heart that’s screaming so loud
Then follow the lead, it’s not the time to flee
Then swim… swim hard until you reach the dream

Kaleidoscope

Look inside and experience the beauty
A mirror of an abstract mystery
Turn it around and see the evolution
It goes beyond my imagination

New patterns are emerging in each glance
A view of an amazing performance
Colours are changing in each rotation
It takes me to a different direction

Each shape is shifting the mind’s paradigm
A fresh knowledge is forming every time
It’s a wonder, it’s my inspiration
It is the kaleidoscope’s attraction
