Still

Internal emotional repression
Can you still fight depression?
Against anxiety, round ten
Can you still fight, friend?

This isn’t my end.

A kid

Filled with a joy
I was a boy

Innocent eyes
Honest cries
Ne’er said no goodbyes

I didn’t think, never thought
My mind and I never fought.

Toll

The same tear
The same fear
The same flood
The same blood
The same death toll
The same poll.

And it starts again
Either to lose or to gain.

#Micropoetry

Adolescent

The blooming heart of an innocent teenager
Is no different to one who cries of hunger
Compassion in the wrong order
Who is your lover?

#Micropoetry

Underwater

The night, mind awake, revelation
More thoughts, wandering ’round, illumination
Heavy, heavy, unmentioned
Late, by end, filled frustration.

Abuse

Words, sharper than knife
Choke my throat, so tight
And left a mark
And sounds as well, my dog barks
Bruises, my neck twisted
My fists, red.

#Micropoetry

Truth

And the feelings behind a screen
May seem foolish, unclean

True love, sentimental, it’s what they feel
And what counts is that it’s real.

#Micropoetry

Example

As a lone wolf survived
For being strong, the one who strides
No looking back, forthcoming
Brave and courageous, and continues fighting.

Lesson

As life teaches you
You remember, you’re no fool
And you’re no ignorant
Human nature is, but maybe arrogant

And yet, I crave for knowledge.

#Micropoetry

Diverse

Different shades of blue and red
Distinguish colors, I resent

For I am blind, not colored

I saw, and I’ve seen,
What now isn’t green.
