Just when I thought
it couldn't get any worst.
It slapped me hard
reminding me that I was cursed.
I lived in solitude
for so many years.
For every time I went out
I'll came back drenched in tears
Everything that I love,
Will get cracked and broken.
I'm better off alone
than to be the sore and burden.
Just when I thought
it should be better,
Oh, who am I kidding,
I am a walking disaster.

when you are feeling down,
put on your highest heels and stand tall.
when your lips carves frown,
wear the brightest lipstick and smile to the world.
when your eyes shows sadness,
draw with that eyeliner and fool them all.
That is right ladies,
fool them all.
Many are dying to see you fall.
So make it a slow and painful death.

An empty piece of paper,
that is me.
full of blanks
fill with empty.
not even worth a penny.
Until one fine day,
the wind blew.
blew so hard
it made me flew.
a handsome beau.
Who was bruised, broken
all black and blue.
He started to use
the pen on me.
To write his story
of pain and agony.
His stories fill me up,
I am no longer empty.
He then vow
to make me his company
for now and eternity.

Husband and Daughter.
Flesh and Blood.
Heart and Soul.
Smiles and Laughs.
Music and Melody.
Cake and Candy.
Love and Life.

I'd rather lose money then lose your soul, your beautiful soul,your musician soul, your skateboarding soul, your beautiful soul.
The soul that make you different.
And that long hair.
That beautiful long hair of yours.
I miss that hair.
Please come back.
That military uniform is way too coarse and ugly for your delicate soul.
If you can, do not put it on.
It will rip you apart and slowly eat you from the inside.
I don't want to lose your soul over money.

Come here. Hear me crap about love.
My husband and I left our hometown and drove all the way to the metropolis with nothing but each other. We did not have a house and the streets of the metropolis sucks our cash like a sponge absorbs water. We had our bag packs,our car and each other. Oh, we had love. Lots of love.
With the love of friends,
we found shelter.
we get jobs.
and thankfully, endless helping hands.
With the love of family,
we receive blessings.
we hear prayers from far.
and to my shame, something to pay our meal.
With the love of two lovers,
we are happy.
we are content.
and often we dance even when it rains.
With the love of God,
we are still here.
we never get cold.
and most of all, we survive.
The Beatles were right all along.All you need is love.

I've got nothing but the clothes on my bag, a few dollar notes, and You.
Thank God for our friends,more like brothers, and our little Lola too.
There is nothing let for us at home my dear.
That is why we have to leave and come here.
For us, please have some mercy.
We meant no harm, just need a better place for our baby.
We are here to build a new life.
May Lord be with us, and help us survive.
hold tight, keep steady and steer.
We can make it anywhere,
if we make it here.
