sail

Will you fear the wind
or use its strength to set sail?
I hope you choose well.

Poem | Dandelion Wishes

You make her want to wish,
but not the kind most people think,
not wishes of fortune, beauty, nor fame.
She wishes to fit into your mold.

She wishes to be bold, filled with a lot of guts to speak her mind.
She wishes to be more outgoing, less likely to spend time alone.
She wishes to be more affectionate, without fear to show how she feels.
She wishes to love mornings, even when it’s at night that she blooms.

All these, she wishes to be,
all because she wants to honor you.

Yet, if these wishes won’t come true,
She wishes you would love her the same.
Because if these wishes won’t come true,
She wishes to love herself the same.

She wishes to.
She really do.

Poem | SOS

​Her thoughts brew a storm.
There seems to be no escape.
Her insecurities scream.
They pull her down and drown her.
She needs saving.

She needs not a raft nor a boat.
She needs a who —
the One who calms storms,
the One who parts the sea,
the One who quiets the wind.

She knows who she needs, and
She’s thankful that he hears her.
As she cries “I need saving,”
He says, “Come and walk on water.
I can do more than just save you.”

Rest your weary feet.
There’s a longer road to take.
Pause, but do not quit.

In the raging seas

Dear little light bulb,
You’re not meant to shine alone.
Plug in to a source.

Poem | The Leaf Who’s Afraid to Fall

It’s finally fall season once again,
where leaves are slowly changing colors
turning from greens to browns and yellows.
But unlike most, one stays the same.

In the many autumns that passed,
that one leaf stayed connected to its branch
trying her best not to detach and free fall.
Her fears and insecurities tie her up.

In the many autumns that passed,
that one leaf kept holding on for her dear life
no trace of surrender, only of survival.
But, she knows, this wouldn’t last.

In the future, in another autumn,
the leaf will finally allow herself to fall freely
unafraid, ready to brace the uncertain.
She’ll no longer be afraid of falling.

With the arrival of that one autumn she can’t defy,
she’ll no longer be the leaf who’s afraid to fall.
