Short Poem | Rise and Downfall

How many times do I have to die?
so that I’ll know how’s being alive in a place and time
among the changes and pressures
Let me switch my soul with the new one
as a redemption
and a sign that I never forget to rise after my downfall

Poem | Winner

Can I be a winner without weapons and soldiers behind?”

Push my limits out of the borderline
to have a better sight
of what I can and can’t
threat and chance
on all four quadrants

Change happens to all
permanent or temporal
like a mood swing
the daily dose of on and off

Or going through the hardest part
purify my heart at the start
from any stain that blocks the light
so I can get lost on the right track
and know which side I have to stand up
