I Care Not

I care not if I can succeed
Since my goal is high and far
I just focus on my journey to reach
even though there are a lot of setbacks

I care not if I can reap romance
Since roses are to my very taste
I am not afraid to open my heart
even though there are hypocrites around

I care not if I will get caught in the storm
Since my destination is the horizon
all I can give to the world is my shadow
even though my dear past is also left behind

I care not if my future is bright or not
Since I have great passion for life
everything is under expectation
even though everything is unknown

To Be Or Not To Be

To Be Or Not To Be short poem

It’s nights like these when I feel like an irony living within itself radiating love yet feeling unloved. It’s night like these when I can’t recognize what tomorrow holds or recall what yesterday held. I feel like an insect crawling
