Social Mores

The world admired her profound devout for social mores. And she hardly disappointed, as she graciously exuded her alacrity with absolute subtleness.

It is a reverie,
A canvas daub with your memories,
Now awaken to bitter actuality,
I am discern of your abrupt evanesce,
And that withering hope of your appearance,
Is dwindling away with the passing time,
Knowing I can’t mend it,
Makes my heart bereaved of your endearment.

But not the soul,
Never deprived of your thoughts,
Though our time was short-lived,
The reminiscence is enough to cherish forever,
Your impressions still fresh from yesterday,
For the times when I am alone,
To bring that occasional smile,
Drifting me to a reverie,
Where I can live with your memories.

A Different World

Maybe there is world out there,

Different from this one,

Beyond hatred and differences,

And the prejudice of rationale minds,

Where love rules all,

And peace and harmony,

Remain the only human signs.

Let my soul take me,

To such a place,

Or else I give me the strength O’ lord,

So that I can build it here,

To bring the smiles and the lost shine.
