In The Hands Of Society

image

He lost himself
in the hands of society
He bared his teeth
growl and scratched at nothing
He felt high
He was on cloud nine
But within a blink of an eye
he was torn to threads
By society which had given birth
Birth to greed, insecurities
power, lust
and all things humans crave for

He lost himself and
Just like that he was forgotten
yet why-
Why do humans crave so much
for materialistic things?
It isn’t that which define who we are
But we
We are the ones who define who we are
It’s too late
Because half of this world has already lost itself

…in the hands of society

A Prayer To You

image

Photo by me

They say have faith
believe in you
and everything will be okay
I did just that
But you mocked me
Seeing my smiling face
you wiped it away immediately
My teary eyes
making the heavens rejoice
My wrongs and rights
you know them all
before even a single one could be complete
I pray to you and tell myself
Everything happens for a reason

Where are you?
No where to be seen
Years and years of struggling
and a blind eye
You love us all, that’s what you said
But in truth
There is just a few
Still trapped in the dark
You refuse to shine your light
upon me
So this is my reason to live?
Will I be driven into my own dark desires?
Shall I take life into thy own hands?

Why do you still refuse to answer me?
A broken, lost and battered soul
Am I still not worthy of you?
Just like Lucifer
Tempted to be THE ONE
not the one to lead an army of unjust
But to be THE ONE of many
Whom you have bestowed your love upon

A prayer to you
just like the others
Will this too go unanswered?

Life

Sometimes
it stops at our throat
And we find it hard to breathe
We thrash about
And scratch at our chest
Lungs burning
With the desire to be filled-
With life
A reason to keep living
Day by day
we mortals struggle
To make something worth the time we have left here
We bicker
Slaughter
Laugh
Cry
Smile
at the different things life throws at us
We wear masks with permanent
smiles or frowns
Our pride is too great
it takes control
No “I’m sorry”s or “Excuse me”s
when necessary
Life’s ego
and life’s sacred self
Giving us two choices:
To live or to die
Blinded by all things bad that feel so right
selfishness
greed
envy
and the list goes on
We choose dying without realizing
Staining the once pure mind
of all things good
Slowly with aging
life will take its toll
giving each of us
what we truly deserve
It’s too late now
to rewrite new stories on worn out pages
that fades away along with us
Happy thoughts
Sad thoughts
it doesn’t matter to life
Because we mortals are life in its self
Make it what we will
and live it cautiously

I’ve decided to make every Mondayย “Jo’s Music Mondays”ย YEAH!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s not what any of you guys are thinking. It’s just something I’ve always done, whether it was in my diary or not. And I thought long and hard about doing it here and I was likeย “Why not?!”ย As I said before, this blog is where I can talk about anything or do anything I want to. Soooooo here I am, writing my first everย “Jo’s Music Mondays”ย post and I’m so happy. Maybe I should make this blog my diary or something (ha-ha). Also, I hope that you guys will be able to learn a little bit about me through my music posts. I do like a lot of music and over time you guys will realize that I listen to almost any and everything.ย Don’t judge my music taste!!ย 

I decided to make Waiting For Love by Avicii my first Jo’s Music Mondays post. I think this song was well written and well sung. I know a few people can and will relate to this song. So I hope you guys will like it just as I do ๐Ÿ˜€
Oh yeah, before I forget….there’s actually two videos for this song but I chose to post the lyric video instead because of the animation. Incase you wanna check out the original just look it up~ย ย 

Enjoy!!

P.S: I wanna thank my friend abxtruthlies for doing the picture for me ๐Ÿ™‚

Rain Sound

image

The dead of night
Wide awake she lay
With the heavy sounds of rain
and an aching heart
Tears hugging the flesh of her cheeks
Memories replaying like scratch CDs

Warm hands that held her
now holds another
Soft lips fitting so perfectly with hers
now fits another
Melodic laughter which never fails to make her smile
now only plays for another

The dead of night
The rain sound echoes
against roof and windowpanes
The smell of coffee and it’s warmth
fills both mind and body
Empty cuddles and cold sheets

They met in the rain
And end in the rain
Now the rain sound isn’t what it use to be
A soft lullaby that comforts her
but a tragic love story gone wrong
A music note-
that lost its sound

She hugs the only thing she could find
A pillow…his substitute
Swollen face
Half empty mug
The darkness and lightening
which kissed with every chance they got
Illuminated her pale features

With moist yet hopeful eyes
She watch the rain pour
One day for sure
These rain sounds will be what they use to be
The raining sounds of love
