I did not intend to go, but I was glad I decided to stop
By the beach and see the sun cast its warm glow on the troubled sea,
As the waves violently crash, against each other before
Finally bowing down to the shore… broken, but only to go back,
And crash again, and again, and again without a care in the world.
Because waves were meant to crash against each other and
Into the shore. No matter how broken it looks to the eye,
It will always stay the same because that’s how it should be.
Like you and me, crashing and burning but always
Returning to each other. Because we both know very well
That’s how we both want it to be, no matter the struggle of the waves.
Because ultimately there is beauty amidst the chaos of it all.
This lame poem is my response to the photo-inspire me tag that Kat sent me. Although I know I suck at poetry, I was interested to give it a try so go ahead and tell me how poor I did in the most creative way you can think of.
Anyway, this is how the tag went:
Write a poem or an inspiring line based on a photo of your choice. This photo can be your own, or someone else’s. (If the picture is not yours, please ask permission from the owner when you post it, or better yet, provide only the link to the picture that inspired you, without posting it.)
Your poem or inspiring line may be of any length, and any genre. It can be humorous, sentimental, heart-warming, whatever. You may write in Ilokano, English or Filipino.
Post your inspiring line in your blog and in the comment section of this page (or just a link to your post so we could go and check it there). For poetry submissions, please indicate if you wish your piece to be posted in Bilingual Pen as an article submission.
The goal of this game is to get us to write, and express our thoughts and emotions.
I am really interested as to how my kuya soulsheik will do with this tag.
There were a couple of earthquakes today and it was the first time I experienced an earthquake when I’m out of the house. I was only at the third floor but I got dizzy due to the earthquake and its aftershock. Crap. I don’t like earthquakes.
Something I also loathe is going to the dentist as attested by my post Mouth Temporarily Closed for Renovation but as luck would have it, I am badly suffering from multiple tooth aches. Ouch! Tooth ache is so irritating! Hate toothache! Hate toothache!
