The Winner

Rating: 4.0

A tribute to Jovit Baldivino...The winner of the Pilipinas got talent

His winning piece…..



I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long

I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find
Where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster
'cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you
Every time

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down

How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I'm bound to lose

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you
Every time…


(poverty is not a hindrance of success...GOD knows, GOD is watching us..)

Too much love will kill you Just as sure as none at all It'll drain the power that's in you Make you plead and scream and crawl And the pain will make you crazy You're the victim of your crime How do you write these lines poet! ? ! Perhaps it is actually the post-modern thought-wave we are bearing through the time we pass. Beautiful but not the Bible. Love always expands itself by unconditional surrendering to a belief or a person or an ideology. So pains are the throne to a lover. What your God teaches you! When one expect return from ones loving job, perhaps that is passion which you wants to illustrate. Love always should be to its highest reach, otherwise no one can attain its nectar. Yet your poem stands great for its craft and radical thoughts you express with aesthetical poetic blend. Thank you poet for such a creation which knocks our inner chamber to stand before the mirror of soul. WRITE MORE.......MORE........... Regards, 10++ pranab
