Take It or Leave It (Revised)

Take It or Leave It (Revised)

Still, your presence lingers around.
There were some lessons that
I thought I will never learn.
It turned out to be a lake of grieving,
Forming a path of misery.

I stand alone, without anyone in sight.
No one to call out for help.
Laying here with these deep thoughts
Inside my head of make believe
Where nothing gets out.
Therefore, no one will foreseen the signs
That I am truly suffering as child does
Devoid of its happiness.

After all, it is impossible to breathe life
Into an individual that only seeks death.
Break their fall and soon, one’s death
Is to arrive sooner than later.
The solution would be to
Talk some sense into them.
However, not everyone realizes or appreciates
What they have now.
The world’s mysteries and its darkness,
We will soon unlock and come across.

These walls and barriers are nearing its end.
With nowhere to go, nothing seems to make sense.
Out of place, we inch closer to the day
Where our confusion dissipates.

This is a song for the lonely and those
Who are in need of a motive or inspiration
In life to get by, to move forward.
Go free.

A brand new day has arrived,
The sun, shining brightly without
A single cloud in sight.
The winds are calm, hostility
Evaporated with the air.
A second chance on making things right.
Take it or leave it.

Realize that the world has something
To offer everyone. So, please
Remain optimistic and realistic
Even as life begins to take its toll on you.
Be given that it is possible to
Start your life over again, at any age.
Just don’t let that opportunity pass you by.
Relinquish your woes and regrets
To make it happen.
Take it or leave it.

A Dream beyond Reach July 5, 2005

A Dream beyond Reach July 5, 2005

Verse1: I close my eyes…
Envisioning all
That surrounds me…
A dream beyond reach,
Deepening within
The void of my heart.

Chorus: Thoughts fleeting across my mind
(A mantra in hand, signified).
After-images that never seem to wash away.
(A silent breeze shall do it justice).
If nothing shall come of it,
Then why shall I just go on putting a mask
To disguise the apparent dissatisfaction
Present and lingering within me?!
(Logic for which is transferred from
Across the other side).
Loneliness ain’t a problem for me.
Then why, why must the prevailing
Thought and sense be equivalent
To that of being lonely atop
Presumes to be a constant and
Never-ending dream beyond reach?

Verse2: Even a fanciful dream beyond reach
Satisfies one’s cure for isolation.
A feeling of depression,
Lingering in the air…
“If one shall succeed, then
One must sacrifice optimism for
A dream beyond reach”.
(Throw away optimism for pessimism)…
“If one shall fail, then one is
Being too overly confident”.
(Let go of pride and optimism
To let pessimism prevail).
Optimism leads to failure.
Will you whisper a philosophy into my ear?

Bridge: A wise prophet once informed me
Of these sad and depressing realities of life.
(The facts of life, if I’m not mistaken)…
It just took me a while to figure out just
Where the underlying causes for the sad
And depressing truth shines true.
Will the illumination beyond the tunnel
Be sufficient enough for the navigation
Of a dream beyond reach?
A moment for which,
The world currently resides.
Will you whisper a philosophy into my ear?
