|Sunset in Hondagua|
Tempest by the Sea
Amid the darkness
of the night in a deep blue sea
I sail across the pathway
of an endless trip.
It never came into my mind
that destiny would be unkind!
I glanced everywhere
but found no one there.
It's very dark around here
how I wish to be awakened
If I'm in lethargy of a sleep!
I just want to run away from the deafening
noise of the place I've been...
But it almost kill me to discover
that it's more deafening to hear the silence of the sea.
My mind wants to go back in the city
but my heart wants to stay here on the sea.
What if there'll be a storm?
Will I still be here tomorrow?
My tears fall down with the rain...
There's nothing I can do
I'm sleepy and exhausted
I'll put myself to sleep
I can't bear the truth
that my journey is an adversity...
A poem I have written when I was still in college. It was also published at the Commerce Department's Official Pubication - JPIA Forum dated March 1998. I thought of sharing it to you. Maybe you can relate.
Thanks for reading, have a great day!
