Hiraeth

There is wrong and then there is right;

I fight it with all my might,

But the perplexity is all too irresolvable:

Cannot be undone even by the most able.

It’s amusing how life brought me here,

Couldn’t ever guess it was taking me there –

Only stillness lies where.

Screech, O’ heart, there is no one to hear.

There was hope and then came the tears,

There was glee and then came the fears,

There was light and then came the dark;

None failed to leave their mark.

Some slashed the veins, some just the skin,

Nonetheless, the sting was akin.

Cherishing it like a treasure,

I’m trying to turn it to pleasure.

My judgment is clouded

And what lies ahead is shrouded.

There is not a path I can take,

Each will cut me deep.

There is nothing to see;

Nothing but nebulous lines.

But I will keep going,

Because that is where my fate lies.

Valley

You call me weak,

But it wasn’t I who portrayed me meek.

You say I am worth nothing,

Maybe that is why I give you everything.

You say I need validations,

Yes, from you who relishes abominations.

You say I am only my body,

Perhaps that’s why what I ever did was make everybody.

You say I am made to be ruled,

Sure, by you whose hormones leave him fooled.

You say I am ordinary.

Indeed, a thought very illusionary.

You see, I am none of what you consider.

Who I am is the uppermost bidder.

What I am is pride.

For whatever you say

Or whatever you do,

I still stand tall; taller than you.

I still fly far above the ground,

With nothing that can have me bound.

Go ahead, split my skin and shed my blood,

Rape my body and rip my soul,

Put me up for show

And have my head hanged low.

I will still put you in your place,

Show you why I am the ace.

Because darling, you don’t know who I am,

And you will never guess what I  can be.
