Biography of Edwin Alba Empestan
'Time is ticking so fast' so they say that it waits for no one and life is very short that it can 'snap' anytime without a warning and soon you will be forgotten and becomes history.
Like any singer that was long gone before our time, still their songs remain and linger in our thoughts, memories, even played and be heared today our present time, so is a 'Poet to his Poems'.
So just live one day at a time, live the life, have fun, be happy and above all have Faith. Anyone is welcome to read my poems, enjoy, learn, read the messages in between them, and all your comments are welcome.
But let me caution you, that there is no such perfectness in one's poetry especially with one own style so unique from others. What is important is the joy in reading the poet's messages, what it tells and what is implied.
Happy reading, and God bless.

Edwin Alba Empestan Poems
Walking through the lives we tread Mostly unknown where the final destination Amidst the complexities of an abyss materialism Perflexed and chagrined by the question
(aaa) Another Day, Another Love And...
As I wake up one shiny and happy morning on our soft and silky bed With the birds singing sweetly, their lovely songs and bees buzzing On a lovely garden of colorful flowers beside our window Winds strongly blowing the green grass smelling fresh and invigorating
(aai) Pangarap Mo, Noon At Ngayo’y Bang...
Ako si Juan De la Cruz malusog na isinilang Lumaki ng husto sa alaga at aruga ng aking mga magulang Ang tatay ko’y pangkaraniwang anluwagi at magsasaka Ang nanay ko ay pangkaraniwang may bahay at mananahing aba’
(aaa) How Soon?
The question how soon? begs for a simple answer The motion is there that all goes in one direction so well No opposing force except that all in cadence for good No chance for a diversion of another opposite strong force
(aaa) Home At Last
Thousand of miles, seven seas away from you Lies my aching heart astray longing for home Dreaming to be a huge bird to spread its wings Freely into the oblivion of the infinite blue skies
(aaa) Law Of The Beasts
The day has arrived when arrogance and greed will stand Testing their might, force and power to bully a weak one Attacking without warning killing all kinds of human on their way Civilians, men, women, old, young and children, animals and all
(aab) Your Kingdom At Your Command? ? ...
A homely lady so queer so lonely but able to pretend Pretending to be a lady for everything but wanting Wanting on her miserable partner less life Pretending life so full to her but walks always empty
(aaa) We Both Say 'I Love You'
I feel cold but when you are around I feel warm I feel sad but with you at my side I feel animated But that was before when you left me alone and adrift But how could you do such a cruelty that you've left me
(aaa) A Year For For Striving And Not ...
The year has ended (2011) a new year has to stay for awhile A lot of guessing and feeling what the new year has to offer Two people has to exist and will try to walk the ropes The optimists and the pessimists will make their way to tread
(aaa) Women Why I Cannot Forget Them?
You make it stop...you step up and sit besides me and push more for space The engines goes again and your long lovely hair touches my face So sweet the smell of your fresh hair like lovely sweet scent of flowers Your silky white face reflects the young age of a lovely lass full of life
(aaa) Always 'He' Is With You
Challenges are always with us everyday Unknown sometimes that you don't know But you need not to face them yourself Or confront them alone and struggle hardly
(aaa) Christmas, Is It? ? ?
Those fruits, nuts, and other foods for the holiday Symbols of hypocrisy, showiness of false affluence A display of false belief for a new year’s abundance A charade of false pretenses disguising generosity
(aaj) Not In My Dream
The world now beholds is not my dream, The chaos, the turmoil and the plague is not in my dream
(aab) Vindictive - You Devil!
Like a mean sea hag, a witch, and a Jezebel You were at fault of your deed and it’s obvious That you did it as if you’re the only one That can decide things for the group
(aaj) Not In My Dream
The world now beholds
is not my dream,
The chaos, the turmoil
and the plague is not in my dream
The promiscuousity, the non-respect
for the olds and the corruption
is not my in my dream
