“Battles”


Show Text

listen to your heart
and heed its call.
it knows your soul,
the thoughts untold.

remember the adage
that has always surfaced:
“one is always in battle
with both self and the world.”

the key is to ascertain
what makes you sing,
what you want,
and what you need;

let your soul find
the genuine song within–
permit it to win.
you are its king.

“Keep Talking”


Show Text

there it is, i see it–
the truth behind your words.
you say things to me;
i get the hidden message.

you see, words are empty
when they aren’t validated
by so many other things.
keep talking.

i hear you;
but it doesn’t mean
that i’ll heed you.

everyone has their own truth;
and, mine is what i’ll follow.
for, no one can really sway me;
unless what they say
rings true to me.

“The Truth In Your Eyes”


Show Text

i can see the truth in your eyes.
no need to deny it.
for, why can’t you just tell me
that you already like me, too much?
why not say that you love me?
because, admitting it might help.
mayhap, it’ll fix the issue.
we’ll work it out, somehow.
i see it. i feel it.
i just need you to own up to it.
for if you do;
then, i’ll share you a secret, too:
i love you, too.

“Nothing”

The biggest entity which exist is nothing,
but nothingness.
Think about it.
When we say “sky’s the limit”,
isn’t ‘SKY’ the name we assigned
to the infinite Nothingness,
when our imaginations fail to
determine its boundaries?

Is there a sky, for real?

And the deadliest decomposer is nothing,
but time–
an intangible and proof-less quantity,
which we use to measure
even our lives with!
No one will ever know
when was the first second born;
or, when will the last second be.

Don’t we live and die a life of lies?

–Kichu
