Poem Day


The words I write have come to be,
known to all as poetry;
from my heart has come of late,
the songs of love and songs of fate.

From my heart has come of late,
beneath the shell of my own faith,
came the rhymes of stories true,
and of all the things I've yet to do.

Came the rhymes of stories true,
and my hand, it slowly drew,
the rhymes of various symetry,
blind to eyes, but the heart can see.

The rhymes of various symetry,
this thing I write called poetry,
when mind's astray and thoughts had faltered,
the words I write shall never falter.

When mind's astray and thoughts had faltered,
and new blood's kin has come and withered;
I know my words will be at free,
alive forever and always be.

I know my words will be at free,
the rhymes I wrote called poetry,
with God may all you live to see,
my life and love in poetry.

April Fools!

I heard this one last night.

"What's happening on 22 April, something is happening right?"
"I don't know. Is it April fool's day?"
"No lah, its not!"
"There.. April Fools!"

-it's funnier when you're a bit high..

Went out singing with a buddy last night. First time in about a year. I don't normally make it a habit to go out. But I guess the stress from the PPA from hell experience is really driving me up the wall. Compounded that I'm still recovering from the trip to Johor and all. Plus the effects of not having slept well at all the past few days.

Anyway I survived the night. We checked out a Japanese place inside an insurance building near pudu. The place had really cool music. All the 80s rock stuff was there, found Motley Crue, Skid Row even. They even had Alice Cooper and Aerosmith's old stuff, some Def Leppard and a good selection from practically all the 70s rock bands! Wow. Clearly I was blown away.

We belted out the oldies and learned a few Japanese songs. Found out I can still read all that hiragana, at least well enough to sing a bit. The rock songs took a lot out of my voice, but it's been a while since I've seen some of those songs. Reminded me that I've still got more stuff to download once I get the broadband up and running again.

We left just around 2pm and caught up with Mr Beemer and gang over at this club downtown. Chicks galore! But the place was way packed. Got more drinks, but found out we were a bit off for this scene. Bunch of people just standing around girating and/or wiggling was just getting a bit old I suppose.

Sick of the smoke and the pointless standing around. We left for the corner mamak and waited for them to join us. After eating, we found out that I'm still not capable enough of finding my way home, so I got a ride - left my car at the office.

Cut to this morning, woke up with a major stomach discomfort, which is still there. I don't get hungover, no matter what or how much I drink. It's an ability I treasure. Cooked breakfast and now I'm back at the office, in front of the PC and trying to get in the mood to write. Got 1 article to finish and then that hellish PPA redos.

Felt: Sleepy and Queezy
