We don’t have to be famous like them. What we need is to empower and uplift every woman. Keep on kicking ass! Celebrate womanhood. Happy International Women’s Day! Be Free!
You said a thousand lies,
and I believed it hundred times.
It’s easy for you to put wool on their eyes.
I’m glad, your words honey, I didn’t buy.
Your farfetched actions
even your mediocre love,
egotistic and unbearable,
Honey, I’m glad we bid goodbye.
You’ve said you’ll kill yourself
pull the trigger and soon you’ll die.
Honey, I wonder if you are scared?
You’ve turned your life to be a bait.
You have an old diamond.
You also have a new one.
You wanted to use it at the same time.
But chances forbid, you can only have one.
They said, “Trust but verify.”
Oh honey, are you happy?
I believed your sham
You got me enthralled.
You keep on beating on the bush
Oh, I forgot you’re good at turning tables.
But I ain’t a fool until hell freezes over.
I know, yes honey, I deserve better.
I don’t want to blame you or I don’t want to blame myself either, but yeah, we’re both have to be blamed. I gave myself a try, for years that I am single. I met you during our hike at Mount Daraitan with common friends and acquaintances from the past hikes. We’ve followed each other on Instagram right before our hike and you’ve told me to add you on Facebook so you can tag me on the pictures taken during the hike – and so I did. You became the clown, the guide, and everything, through rough edges, epic, and long trails, of all the phases and stopovers, you never failed to put the laugh on our faces despite that difficulty in climbing. I never thought that I’ll grow feelings for you since you’ve been a badass also, the guy I know that will do more evil rather than doing good. I never thought that I’ll write a blog about you. But you know what they said, people write and composed whenever they are sad, they are angry or they are in love. This time, I don’t know if I’m feeling all of these, or I’m feeling just the two of it.
Beyond her sweet smile
is a deep sadness
Her bloom will deceive you
Her vibe will make a fool out of you
She is a dark soul
She is a paradox
Her laughter is feigned,
a woman of sham and fallacy.
She is wandering.
She is wondering.
In time, this curse will fade.
She will come back and
be a laidback someday.
