Two Moms

A girl has two Moms.

First Mom drew her bath,
and wrote her path,
and taught her place in life,
so that she shall be a good wife…

Second Mom heard her dreams,
and listened as tears streamed,
and taught her how to fly,
so that she can be a wild butterfly…

Her First Mom’s words are still there.
Her Second Mom’s aura remains there.
Every year she becomes wiser in this world.
But in her heart, is still that little girl.

A Silent Song

Such circles we walk in, day in, day out…
How many smiles can she fake in a mile?
So many unspoken words, silence wants to shout…
How many turns before the wheel finally burns?
Such sufferings in this world, scattered about…
How many tears will she cry before asking why?
So little candlelight, all so dim now…
How can tomorrow ever know her sorrow?

Bring in the Bell Rings for 2017!

Clocks don’t stop ticking away.
World won’t stop turning around.
Grow and love every day.
Let’s make every second count.

Goodbye to the past held so dear.
Goodbye to the yesterday that has been.
It is time to say Happy New Year!
O we are blessed to welcome 2017!

With Love, Jessie

A Requiem for the Artists

They love us for our art;
But only our success do they see.
To them we shine like stars;
Because we make them believe.

But the years below the surface;
When we hung on for dear life;
When dreams ruthlessly shattered;
Everyday was a torturous fight.

Why do we hold on?
Why do we not give up?
Why do we not listen to Dad and Mom?
Why do we not grow up?

Because we must piece together the shattered vase…
Because our dreams must not die…
Therefore our pride, we throw away…
Because we refuse to be dead inside…

– For all the Artists out there fighting for their dreams everyday

This poem was inspired by “La La Land” directed by Damien Chazelle. What a beautiful film, and something that all actors, and artists could relate to. I wish to continue to have the courage to be in my chosen field of work, no matter how hard it gets.

With Love, Jessie
