What you choose to believe
will affect how you perceive.
A picture’s worth a thousand words,
or possibly less or more.
There’s more than meets the eye.
Take a step back and analyse.
Listen to some sounding advice.
Do you like what you see?
Are you longing to be free?
Think three steps ahead.
He bares his straight, white teeth for a smile
as he greets me with his shy “Hello”,
while I politely nod as I go.
His dark complexion slightly glistens
under the Jakarta morning sun.
ONE ARMED, I woke up and got dressed, went to step class and took a bath:
Got dressed, changed sheets and made bed.
Having one less arm slows a person DOWN.
My house is in silence.
Even one but me at school and work.
No more magic?
Why vacant as it is?
Who took all of it?
Nothing to pick.
Dementors have resided,
Have I put myself on exile for too long,
that solitude no longer feels wrong?
a vacant space without a vibrant soul.
I’m afraid to forget
You may complain
about the rain
It’s hard to go home
without getting drenched
Nights are long
The city traffic’s a bitch
What is it with people like you?
You treat everything a competition,
all in the name of public acknowledgment.
You flaunt your fortunes,
clearly fishing for compliments.
In the periphery of darkness
On your way to the light
You're gonna make a choice
After struggling inside
You must refuse
You must resist
If time were relative,
then I’d like a pause
for a sense of relief
without any cause.
Let me roam around,
Thy name was what they used to die for
And I had refused to bow down before
They walked in line believing they were right
But never seriously took they his might
The tyranny stands against us
bought and sold.
Facts versus fiction.
