Living By - Poem by Anthony Yaman D. Cabal

Living by. Don't worry about the past, nor the future.
So, for today, we're gonna' be your teachers.
Why do we have to fake a smile?
Is the soul behind you really just a innocent child?

Why are you different to him and different to me?
Do you know that you're the only one who could make me happy?
Why do you have to ignore my plea?
Is it that hard to understand and see?

Why do you only comeback when you want something?
Is sadness the reason for your begging?
A poke to my heart, an uphill slope for a mile,
Don't do this no more or i'll choke on my smile.

You know when to love, to stop, to listen
But you can't honestly tell unless you're really open
So, how ‘bout telling me what you truly feel?
Do you still long for me or are the emotion's already killed?

You're not thinking how much this thing have gone far
Now would you let us show you what true dreams are?
Do you know how much it hurts when someone else is making you happy?
Worry. I do that a lot mostly when you're not with me.

You enter a room by the your friends call,
My eyes was feasting on your disguise.
Things goin' on my head. While I lean on the wall.
Remembering all the lies that kept me running around for miles.

Life is a battle. But never forget that
the battle is the lord's.
For music makes us feel good,
and yes he's the one playing the chords. :)

As he plays his magic instrument that he uses to create life,
Every key has its importance, every key has its might.
And though he's all powerful, wipe us all with his smite,
but he doesn't, because he cares for you, for us, and everyone in sight.

HE loves us so much to give us everything we pray for.
You can trust your life to him and let him handle it.

Let HIM. Let him handle it.

For he and only he knows what's best.
While he work for you, he just lets you sit there and rest.

Some people have been here a thousand times, but never quite got it.
So if you have trouble with your gifted mind, ask, "have I fought for it? "
Is it the one I want or is it the one I need,
Before asking why it didnt happen yet, ask "have I planted the seed? "

I got to make that change, but I'll start with me.
So, when I step up that stage, I'll hear their applause.
Things aren't always like that, don't let it be.
I work hard for all of this, because..

Even if I should die
I am not afraid cause I know I'd have GOD by my side.
For he is my shepherd. Our shepherd


- first collab work.
