Rookie (September 26 / Dolores, Samar Philippines)

Vanquish


Teardrops of last winter years
Is a graves wine
To a hurting heart.
Each dropped of tears -
Is a cleansing balm
To a broken soul.

Let it dropped - until -
Your soul is healed
From the mires
Of broken dreams.

Tears is a vanquish
Of today’s sorrow
But an appointment
Of tomorrows duty.

Sigh! So cry like a baby
For morrow
Is a fine day.
You’ll forget
All your sorrow.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
