The Emblem of Life

Lifes Metaphor

As I stood in front of this

Beautiful topography

A landscape that

Speak my personality

cryptic, mythical, enchanted

I hear its mysterious turbulent


Across the entire panorama

Its harmonious I am under

The sunlight slowly fading

The thick dark clouds


My entire universe

As I watch the rain



A mournful sound itself

Stabbing my chest deeper

Than I thought

As I reminisce a fearful childhood

This landscape

I was cloistered

I believe will outlive

I wandered across

The land and seek

Every possibilities

Of my narrow curiosities

Where birds go it's where

I'm going

But it was then

when I was eight

Then adolescence come

To play

With its odds and excitement

Preceding maturity

I used to explore the

Landscape with


and none fear

Every hurtful words

Every painful confrontation

Every gossip

Sadness, exclusion, and lies

People throw

I figured out the fragility

I was under

Indeed the memories outlast

With deep bruises and injuries

But no matter how catastrophic

The landscape was

And the humanity i am under

My wander might end

That day

But still and once again

My exploration

Will start fearfully

And braver than I was eight.
