My Adoring Moon

Written by Tan Nguyen
Tuesday 19th of April 2016

Above the world
High into the sky
Sits proudly, glowing
Beautiful and majestic
Unique, irreplaceable
Only one of its kind
My adoring, protective moon

I remembered the nights
When I was sad and lonely
You appeared behind the clouds
Glowing strongly through
Letting me know
I was no longer alone

I remembered the nights
When the world was confusing
I was scared, petrified
Afraid with the events
Surrounding my life
There you were
With your comforting glow
Letting me know
Everything will be alright

I shall never forget
How I was comforted
Assured by your presence
Despite how badly everything seems
I know the moment shall passed
Embracing the storms
There’s always a rainbow afterwards

After years and years
I still find myself lost
Everytime I look into the moonlight
Like being enchanted
Under a beautiful spell
Feeling safe, comforted
Beautiful in knowing
Protected by the divine.

Shooting Stars

Written by Tan Nguyen
Tuesday 19th of April 2016

Quietness of the night
Disturbed by a shooting star
Invading the blackness
With its shining lights
Marvellous sights

Suddenly, appearing above
Unexpected, yet welcomed
Shooting across the sky
In a blink of an eye
Happened so instantly
Imaginations maybe a factor

For the briefest moment
Breaking the spell of night
Left standing outside
Hoping for another glimpse
Looking up towards the sky
Scanning the darkness above
Stunned by the beauty
Disappeared before wishes were made
Stubbornly standing in the cold.

Destiny Awaits

Destiny Awaits

Written by Tan Nguyen
Tuesday 19th of April 2016

Destiny has been waiting
Watching patiently
Looking on the progress
As each challenges arises
Like a teacher
Eagerly giving lessons

Journey down fate’s path
Lessons from the tutor
Seems most difficult
Sometimes it feels
Life hasn’t anything else
Except to take joy
On the sufferings of the world

Maturity came with age
Thoughts are no longer the same
I understand more clearly
Life doesn’t take pleasure
Life isn’t bored
Only teaching lessons necessary

Preparations for the future
Advancing on the next stages
Destiny, written in the stars
In the heavens and the moon
Like the backdrops of the divine
As an equal shown respect
Every life matters
In every destiny
Shines uniqueness of brilliance.

A New Day Has Begun

A New Day Has Begun

Written by Tan Nguyen
Tuesday 19th of April 2016

Over in the horizon
A new day has just begun
Rising Sun greets
The arrival of a brand new day
Filled with the unexpected

Lights breaking through
The darkness of night
Rays of warmths
Brightening the sky above
Beautiful beginning
Start of a new day

Sleepy creatures stirs
Returning from dreams
People also wakes
From the touches of light
Saying goodbye
To the land of dreams
Promises are made to return

Fresh from a nights sleep
Rested the tiredness away
Readying for another day
Preparing for another round
Yesterday has passed
Though still fresh on the mind
Waiting patiently, excitedly
To see what the new day has to show.

Changes

Written by Tan Nguyen
Monday 18th of April 2016

People expects changes so drastic it’s illogical.

A person tries their best to change, according to others perspectives.

No matter how much a person has changed, no matter what they do, it’s never enough.

How would a person know that someone has changed? When that person doesn’t even know who that person is?

Changing into a better person, doesn’t mean changing into somebody else.

Beautiful Thoughts

Written by Tan Nguyen
Monday 18th of April 2016

Dearest beautiful thoughts
Your presence these days are rare
Only staying for a short while
Disappearing as soon as you’ve came
Please stay awhile longer
I’ve missed how you’ve filled my mind

Swiftyly are your visits
Popping in, showing only your head
Perhaps you are shy
Maybe time has made us strangers
Making the spaces between us
Wider each passing moment

Dearest, beautiful thoughts
Remember the memories
The thoughts which enters my head
When the night is still and calmed
Keeping me company
Throughout the darkest periods
Like a friend, family I do not have.

Heart Of A Poet

Heart Of A Poet

Written By Tan Nguyen
Monday 18th of April 2016

Beneath the calmed surface
Hidden from sight
Lay the burning foundations
A poet’s heart deeply emotional
Dangerous, always on the verge
Exploding with the intensity
Feelings which must be expressed
Released in some form
Otherwise, risked of being burnt
By the passion that resides within.

World Around Us

World Around Us

Written by Tan Nguyen
Monday 18th of April 2016

Laughter, a beautiful sound
Rarer these days
Genuine laughter being heard
Hints of sadness
Felt through the laughters

Birds happily chirping away
Not a care in the world
Baby animals bouncing on each other
Playful, energetically chasing
Playful manners, delightful to watch
Lasting long into the time of day

Differences in life style
Presenting different events
Their problems ain’t similair to ours
Differs in so many ways
They are happy, without worry
Probably unlocked, discovered
The secrets of life

Purpose in their lives are simple
Animals, acting like animals
Humans, something else entirely
Gifts sent from above
Unwrapped, left ignored
Chasing unimportant valves
Unnecessary weights being added
Already heavy with burden

Life, bonds every living thing
Connected with the energy
Flowing, filling the air around us
Life, like a roller coaster ride
Sometimes up, sometimes down
Bad moments shall past
Good moments also goed
Endure the current situations
For once it has gone
It shall never be repeated.

Naive To Dark To Light

Naive To Dark To Light

Written by Tan Nguyen
Sunday 17th of April 2016

Somewhere along aimlessly
Stumbling upon purposes
Unexpected, yet grateful
Slipping, spiralling downwards
Seemingly fallen to oblivion

Within the darkest of darkness
True discovery for self is found
Abandoned by everyone
Shutting the doors, locking it shut
Exhausted from uselessness
Sick to death of being a spectator
Unable being involved, only watching

Safest, less tiresome
Were to turned my back to the world
Losing my ability to feel
Losing my emotions in the process
Served only me, ignoring all others
Even my family, most important of all

Something suddenly snapped within
Screaming loudly, it’s enough
Time to rejoined the world
Stopped feeling shamed and guilty
Do something about it
Instead of feeling sorry for myself

I jumped head first into the public
Without any cautioned
Delved right in the middle
Unsure what to expect
What mattered was I came back
Into the world I left behind
Thus, began my journey to life

Times of being alone, isolated
Served me well, things I’ve learnt
Knowing my weaknesses and strengths
Enabling me to handle
Anything the world throws at me
Like a forgotten diamond
Laying, covered with dirt
Once tenderness, kindness and love
Cleaning me up, lending their hearts
I shined brightly, for myself
Also, for those that believed in me.
