I am Certain

In every city, I go.

In every country, I have been.

The Star and the Cross hope,

That he will be with us one day.

 

They call him by different names,

And claim him as theirs.

Both preaching similar faiths,

Both saying they are correct.

 

One says he is yet to come,

While the other hopes for him again.

One says he is the son of God,

While the other says, he wi...

My Dearest Friend

You have proven to be my biggest ally, knowing

Me better than anyone else.

 

Shaping my thoughts into the paper canvas, opening

A door for them to see into my world.

 

Grateful I am for your help, lost

I would be without you.

 

Thank-you for being by my side, and

For encouraging me to never give up.

 

My dearest friend, my

Silver pen.

Uncertainty

How can I tell her that I love her?

How can I show her my true feelings?

If the words “I Love You” are dwarfed compared to what I feel.

Not even all the jewelry and roses of the world could equal her beauty.

 

How can I describe to her?

That every time I see her my surroundings cancel out.

She is my center of attention,

That for her my heart aggressively pounds.

 

Wil...

Maria

In my times of tribulations,

Arrived my salvation.

One might think it was an angel,

It was, but in the form of a girl.

 

She brought light into my life,

My prayer of hope in the flesh.

Her name alone is a prayer,

That brings easiness to my heart and head.

 

She makes me be a better man,

She has taught me to trust and love.

With her eyes, she stops time.

The White Van

We wake up before the Sun,

But thanking God for another day.

We get ready as a whole,

Exhausted but getting dressed.

 

We load up the van,

With mops, a scrubber and a buffer.

We load up the van,

So that we may not hunger.

 

We drive to our destination,

no vacations nor days off.

So that our children can continue their education,

Hoping that our hard work will...

Wake Up/Despierta

I hear you,

I hear your snore.

I see you,

Sleeping without trouble at all.

 

But I am confused,

For you should be angry and awake.

La Bestia has slashed at you,

Calling you a thief and a rapist.

 

He is the dominant culture,

Thinking of ways to keep you down.

But we must think of our future,

And make it our own.

 

The clock is ticking,

The lines are ...
