Ulysses Cabinatan Poems

Life is like playing basketball
dribble, run, walk, jump and shoot.
play without a ball and a goal
and the game will be pointless

Where you are

Wherever you are

the rule should be to find a word that defines the letter

like for Letter S,
I define it as shining

Give me strength when my will is weak
Give me strength when my heart is frail
Give me strength when life gets rough
Give me strength when my spirit gives up

I am God's work of art
He crafted
My inmost being
And my heart

She’s my first home
for nine months
and for my first nine years
she was always there for me

I am happy when I reach a goal
big or small
hard or easy to achieve
lofty, noble or one which is simple.

Empty plastic bottle
Empty water bottle
Easily toppled
When wind blows

I live in a world were clouds are pink
And leaves are gold

I live in a world were sands are liquid
And seas are solid

Joy is in your heart
Not in the hand of another
Joy is in your heart
Not in the decision of others

The phoenix,
A mythical bird
resurrected from the dead.
it dies,

SWOT analysis doesn’t always apply to any decision making
nor enumerating the advantages and disadvantages
There may be factors to be considered,
such as its impact to the economy, energy and ecosystem


D relates anything to Doors
to thresholDs, open opportunities anD Decisions


My dad hid his emotion.
he is not the huggy type
nor the vocal type of expressing his love
have never heard him saying I love you

can ruin your lungs
can ruin your heart

I give up my dreams
to follow yours
I give up my ambitions
to suit yours

Work is play and the world is my playground.
Working on a ship feeling as though
I’m on a cruise.
Or being a flight steward,


the tweLfth Letter,
mysticaL magic,
pertains to the divine, something up from above,
ELohim, hoLy, ruLer, royaL,

The tendency to do the wrong
The inclination to desire that which is evil,
the immoral,

Ulysses Cabinatan Biography

My father was a writer in our local dialect. Writing was his hobby and he was working as a Mechanical Engineer. I took up Engineering course in college and working in the UAE. I have no specific time or day to write. Sometimes, when an idea came up to my mind, I jot it down or type it on my phone. I usually get some of my ideas during a car/bus ride, then when I'm on my computer, I type it.)

The Best Poem Of Ulysses Cabinatan

Life Is Like Playing Basketball

Life is like playing basketball
dribble, run, walk, jump and shoot.
play without a ball and a goal
and the game will be pointless
so keep an eye on the ball and focus on the goal
dribble, sweat, give energy and effort
and play with enthusiasm and joy.

Zackery Klocke 801 Nile Kinnick Dr. S Adel, Iowa 50003 December 4,2015 Dear Champs Ulysses Cabinatan, When I first looked at this poem I thought it was going to be just another boring poem about basketball and how it takes work to be the best. But after I started reading it I realized it was nothing like that. It gave advice and was relatable in so many ways. It made me feel like if I took the words of this poem to heart I could achieve many great things in my life. It really made me think a different way of how to live. “Play with enthusiasm and joy”. This line also affected the way I act towards my friends and family and everyone around me. I Chose this poem because I love to play basketball and thought that it might be cool to read a poem on one of my favorite things to do but I didn’t know that it would change the way I think or the way I do things in my life. For example, before I read this poem I took the easy way out of everything. Did minimum work, didn’t listen to my teachers, and was pretty much lazy and took everything for granted. But after reading this poem I realized how much better I could be and how much more I could achieve if i actually started applying myself to everything I do in life. So I started doing all my homework and listening closely to the teachers and trying to understand everything that they taught me. I also started to apply myself more to more than just school like basketball and also helping around the house a lot more with chores and babysitting.”So keep an eye on the ball and focus on the goal”. This line from the poem also made me think about what goals I want to have in life and how to achieve them. Like making more friends is a goal of mine. I thought of what i wanted and the way to achieve it. The way I thought of to achieve this one is to talk to people I don’t normally talk to or hang out with. Another goal is to get a pay raise at my job. My steps to achieve it was to ask what needed to get done and then get it done and move on to the next thing and to also work as best as I possibly could. So after reading your poem I want to really thank you for changing the way I think and act about everything I do. I also want to thank you for putting it in words that I can relate to and apply in my everyday life so thank you. Sincerely Zackery Klocke
