Guardian Angel 

Heavenly divine

Powerful beyond measure

A guilding light

More precious than treasure
Sacred contract

Before birth agreed

Until death concludes

The holy pact fulfilled 
Struggles are necessary

Through the journey of life

Your deeds I’ve noticed

Results could’ve been alot worse

You’ve lessen the blow
My guardian angel

Who knows me so well

Protective yet strict

My teacher, my light 

Time to shine bright

Unfortunate bad luck

One event after another 

Consumed by life itself
Darker the world appears

Emotions, feelings

Slowly strips away

Replaced by nothingness

Heavy, crushing weight
Hope and dreams

Abundant, once upon a time

Another life long ago

Without despair, being as one
Spiral knows only one way

Falling, deeper down

Till there’s nothing left

Of the person you once were

Lost for eternity, forever more

O nly to justify the deeds

S carred, in the name of justice

Separated By Beliefs 

You and I 

Are similar in every way

Differences so small yet vast 
Separated by definitions

Cultural or beliefs

Widens the gaps further

A great void inbetween 
Don’t we feel pain

When others hurt us?

Don’t we feel happiness

When others are kind?

Emotions and feelings

Binds us together; in more ways than one 
Differences in opinions

The essence of being human

Our birth right to believe

To be unique, to be ourselves

Threatened by society; by laws
As long as our beliefs are the same

No conflicts can be seen

Yet as soon as it’s different

Problems are destined to be

Who Am I 

Questions remained

Endlessly wandering around

Upon the mind like a plague
Questions are answered

Certainty prevails for awhile

Till tragedy strikes unexpectedly

Structures, foundations crumbles

Results in second guesses
Who am I?

What is my purpose?

Why am I here?

Thoughts, on auto replay

Demands elusive answers

Wrong Way Around 

I’d always thought 
Myself as being strong

In fact, opposite were true
Thoughts kept secret

Locked safely away

Inner emotions unharmed
Pain and suffering

Handled alone, quietly

Unable to burden others

Problems which are my own
In my eyes

I thought I was being strong
In others eyes

I was pushing them away
Withdrawing from everyone

Refusing anyone near

Only wanting to protect them

Hurting them instead

Of protecting them from the pain
Instead of being strong

Weak is closer to reality

Wrong way around
Happiness is to be shared

Even sadness and hurt

Especially those love ones

They feel your pain anyway

World Of Illusions 

Protective barriers

Installed subconsciously

Fragile yet holds firmly
Within the confines

Ignorance is truly blessed

Eyes which can not see

Ears which can not hear

An illusion cast aside
Light and dark

Can’t exist without another
Fear is dream’s shadow

Sadness an companion to happiness
Wall upon walls of illusion

Minimize confusion

In the midst of everyday life

Remember; our world is large

First Time

Dawn appears

Through the darkness of night

Lights, blinding at first

Eyes adapted after awhile

Life; changed forever
In the darkness of night

Rising up above the silent sky

A moon reveals majestically 

Lights of the night appears

No longer alone in the dark

Companionship, of uncertainty
First time ever

Always something strange

A different form of unknown

Yet, once used of its appearance

One wonders how they lived

Without the presence; of the first time
