Take Courage

It is heartwarming to know that someone cares
That someone listens despite who you are
Despite the flaws that you try to hide
But shows up eventually

In the years when you have to take courage
And be strong amidst the piercing eyes of people
It is amazing how you can stand up
In the pool of shame that people think of you

But sad to know that some are not strong enough
For the may have not given enough time
Or space
Or even shelter
For them to be at peace with their hearts
And for once take courage to face the day
Of a world full of hate and hypocrisy

But you are not alone
For I may be on the other side of the world
But our hearts are as one
Beating the same language that they can’t even understand
And when they can’t follow its rhythm
They start to shoot arrows and push daggers
For we are not one
With them

If they could only understand
If they could only feel the way we feel
If they could only be in our shoes
If they could only be

But they can’t
But they aren’t
So they will never do
They will never be.

So let us not waste tears for sorrow but for joy
Rejoicing the day that we can survive
And live the way we are
Who we are
For who knows when our time has come
And may God bless it
We are glorified with Him in heaven
For the faith
And the fruit of it
And when it’s all done.

Take courage, you are not alone.

Happy Day

I walk in a highway of empty street
Overlooking the pastel mountains
In time when sakura is dying
And flowers bloom to compensate it

The sun is hidden in heavy grey clouds
And the river is silent amidst no sounds
I walk in patterns so random
Towering stones stood in gloom

But nay, my spirit soar through heights
Above crystal waters and the mist that shrouds
It leaps in hope that makes me smile;
That make me see beauty in this dark autumn sky

Lo and behold the sun is out!
The tress! The trees! They jumped from the ground
In vibrant colors from red to brown
In green and yellow and something I’m astound

I stopped for a while and listen to the sound
Of the beautiful silence I am surround
Of red maple leaves falling to the ground
And how I turned gloom to beauty, it abounds!
