The Old World

I don’t miss waking up early to get to work

But I miss going to work and seeing workmates who are now like family.

I don’t miss the traffic and the time spent confined in a jeepney for many hours just to get home

But I miss being able to go out anywhere at almost any time.

I don’t miss the over crowded places

But I miss the crowd of friends and families getting together.

I definitely don’t miss the pollution and would prefer going out to inhale a fresher air.

That was the old world,

Just some months ago.

It Must Be

It must be exhausting being you

Always on the spotlight

Never able to hide from the world.

.

It must be awful being you

Not able to decide for yourself, not really

Always being told what to do

Because that is the price you pay in exchange for the fame they give you.

.

It must be cruel in the world you’re living

Because no smile or kindness shows on you

It must be hard to pretend it’s all perfect

When deep down you’re struggling to breathe and break free.

Impossible (Too Far)

It’s impossible to fall

It’s impossible still not to

It’s impossible for him and I

We’re farther than the moon and the sky.

It’s impossible that we will be

It’s just impossible, don’t you see?

For our worlds are far apart

And only I know that I am the other half of his heart.
