Lebana Speaks: Amidst Obscurity (My 100th Post)

Here I am all over again,

entombed in the realm of obscurity

Silent outcry is just vain,

and desolation may cause insanity.


Will he come and protect me

against the wretched curse of destiny?

Please come and set me free,

and we’ll both embrace immortality.


Now is the right time, my dear,

while the devil is slumbering.

Gather your strength, you need not fear.

Unshackle me and I’ll halt whining.


I shall not fear any darkness, my dear.

For you are always here and there.

Lebana Speaks: Love Under The Stars

I had a dream last night

In my euphoric vision

I was standing there

under the golden moon and glittering stars


I was enjoying to watch the picture-perfect sky

and listening to the melodious rhythm of the wind

when suddenly, I heard a voice, a very familiar voice

It was him, I thought, and he really was


He ran near where I stood

And before I uttered the foremost words

He hugged and kissed me fervently

like it was our first, like we owned the universe


We then talked and laughed

We even hummed our favorite song

while dancing under the moonlight

Everything was just so fantastic


But before he left that night

he gently whispered these important words

“Always remember that I love you

 and I will see you again”


This dream makes me miss you more, my love.

I will definitely see you, not in my dreams but in reality.

Wait for me and together we’ll dance

under the stars.

Lebana Speaks: Untold Poetry (A Sonnet)

As I hid in the bars of fate,

little voices tattled behind me.

Withering words ignited hate,

hence, freedom was a plea.

But when I wallowed in the grandeur of tales,

and succumbed in the glory of poetries,

those displeasures, frights, and gales

suddenly disappeared like reveries.

I then escaped from the realm of uncertainty,

which led me to the depths of fantasy.

There I found solace and serenity,

but it also took away my sanity.

Only a fool can fathom how I think.

Translate the odds before you blink.

Equilibrium(Sunday’s Haiku)

Stack of boulders

bravely stood ere the sky

through a magic touch

Life can be compared to that stack of boulders. We may have dissimilar ways of piling things up in our lives. Naturally, we have different strategies, priorities and dreams. However, we should always remember that our thoughts, words and actions should always be in great harmony whatever happens. Or else, the ramparts we’ve once made will fall and eventually turn into ashes. Be sure you are living the life of your dreams. Just don’t let your dreams decay.

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony” Mahatma Gandhi
