Uncle Sam’s Fate: Topic for Week# 35: US Elections / Republican / Democrat

We are looking for someone to lead us
A person who shares the same ideals
With a vision to carry is a plus
With hopes in advancement for the casuals

Tackling ev’ry issue with a debate
A meeting of the minds for the nation
That will help determine Uncle Sam’s fate
The turn of events in the election

So be Republican or Democrat
It’s conservative versus liberal
A sojourn with each John Doe’s caveat
Here’s to levies and laws strong upheaval

Conceding with dignity, they report
Along with the promise of full support

Eternal Sleep or a Spring of Breath – Topic for Week# 34: Death

I tend to cry for topics such as this

We get the same fate sooner or later

I just don’t want to lose people I’ll miss

Guts, will and strength I have then to muster

 

Death, it comes to us unexpectedly

So cherish all the ones you love and care

Accepting flaws and all wholeheartedly

Quality time and attention to share

 

It is the natural cycle of birth

To learn, grow-up and give way to new blood

Relinquishing our purpose here on earth

From dust and yes we will return to mud

 

What we have to do is live the present

This should be our unwavering statement

To (Be) Inspire(d) – Topic for Week# 33: Inspire / Inspiration

Whenever I encounter writer’s block

I’d immerse myself in this happy world

Rather than watch the time flies at my clock

A kaleidoscope that is turned and swirled

 

I take inspiration in things I see

Be motivated by people I know

To whatever, whoever I might be

Everything is not for a circus show

 

Inspiration comes in the form of goals

Or situations that stir emotions

Or views and thoughts that flow from kindred souls

Anything that calls and commands actions

 

So if you will ask, “What do you aspire?”

I long to be inspired and to inspire

Fan Fiction – Topic for Week#32: Magic

If life is full of magic and potions

Will it create a world full of mystique?

The use of sparks, fireworks and explosions

Orcs, elves and fairies of diff’rent physique

 

Will you depend your life on magic cards?

Or see the future on a crystal ball?

Some old tricks made by witches and wizards

Enchanted forest where trees are so tall

 

Are these things happening all in my head?

Curious explorations made by the mind

Stories of fiction while I lie on bed

Works of wonder in troves that you will find

 

Real or not, sometimes it’s good to believe

But in the present is where we should live

Basketball – Topic for Week#30: UAAP / School Pride

 

Life is a game of basketball
It makes you play in offense and defense
You win everything or nothing at all
When situations call for common sense

Enough with the metaphorical theme
And live reality in quick reset
The cheers you are rooting for the dream team
Some grand expectations that should be met

The goal is to forfeit the five-peat drive
A battle between eagles and tigers
And never fall prey to take plunge and dive
A big and loud roar from all the members

Whichever team emerges as champions
Salute for rising over the legions

I’m Falling -Topic for Week#29: Autumn / Fall

Like the leaves of the autumn season fall
I am trying to search for some meaning
As I stare deep into your naked soul
I’ll be able to see through this feeling

By confessing my love with only you
Are you going to be there to catch me?
You must know that what I do feel is true
I guess loving you isn’t that easy

When the last leaf fades in the horizon
Extinguishing all effort and all hope
Accuse me then for a crime of treason
Cutting positivity in this rope
With the green color of hope that’s waiting
Seasons change, so do love that is freeing

Let Us Be One – Topic for Week#28: Peace-War

We are unique in our own little ways
Accept the fact that we are all diff’rent
Here’s to tranquility that lasts and stays
Coarse disparity has long been ancient

But in the track of everyday events
That initiate some misunderstanding
An impression that each of us laments
Bridge the gap: race, belief notwithstanding

Dig deeper in your heart what you desire
Bullets and weapons of mass destruction
Issues tackled in shadowing satire
A grain of salt in hope of creation

In this era, now is the time to heal
Wake up! Let us be one! It’s something real

► John Lennon – Imagine; Happy Christmas (War is Over)

It’s the Journey – Topic for Week#24: (Journey / Travel / Trip)

I want to travel and go some places
Establish friendship and collect mem’ries
Learn a lot of things and meet new faces
A union living in peace for countries

I am at the intersection of life
A crossroad of decisions and notions
I wish for something without grief and strife
A voyage full of happy explosions
They say that it’s not the destination
But the journey of a life that’s well-lived
It’s a never-ending exploration
Hatred and animosity are sievedI know that it’s not a hard thing to do
It should just start somewhere from me to you

Magtulungan Tayo – Topic for Week#23: (Bayanihan)

Ang lahat ay susuungin natin
Kahit anong unos ang dumating
Ang magkaisa sa adhikain
Ito ang nais kong iparating

Ang kawang-gawa para sa bayan
Nagdudulot ng tuwa at saya
Sa kahit anong pamamaraan
Ang pagbibigay tulong sa iba

Ang tanging nais ay maging buo
Ano man’g kulay, ano man’g lahi
At ang pakikipagkapwa-tao
Bayanihang walang pinipili

Nag-iisa lang ang ating mundo
Magsimula sa’kin, sa’yo, tayo

For Your own Amusement – Topic for Week#22: (Carnivals / Theme Parks)

Looking further at a child’s innocence

A visit to theme parks and carnivals

The gate greets you with its magnificence

This gaiety brings smiles like festivals

 

Enter the horror booth of fantasy

Let things be and take them all in a stride

Then satisfy my sweet tooth with candy

I wanna go for some amusement ride

 

Come take me to the giant ferris wheel

The funny clown and the magician’s wand

The rollercoaster that is made of steel

This is my place and this is my play land

 

I always yearn and long for the moment

No one ever denies such enjoyment
