What’s growing up? Elders told me to change Told me that I should take care of myself Arrange my mind Repair my broken heart and soul
What’s growing up? Motivator and self-development books told me to step out of the comfort zone Should I swim across the ocean? Should I jump from 160-floors building? I don’t think I need to enter the dangerous zone cause it already came on my way
What’s growing up? If my age and mentality don’t match at all I refuse to be called “little kid”, but my mentality says otherwise
How far the distance between my goals and the place I stand stiil? My growth became the bridge that connects them But, I can’t count how far I take a step cause I don’t care about the distance I’ll crawl, walk or run, whatever I want No matter how far
Writing is an activity that needs good concentration. That’s why writing often can’t be done when the surrounding is too noisy. Noises can disturb their focus. Usually, midnight or early morning are their productive and maybe favorite times because at that times, the atmosphere is still not too noisy and crowded. The surrounding hasn’t fully awaken yet.
I have my favorite times for writing. I usually do it in the early morning (around 04.00 a.m.-07.00 a.m.) before I go to work or in the evening (around 08.00 p.m.-midnight) before I sleep. I often find some writing ideas or isnpirations at that times, so I called it as “time for ideas explosion”.
I think silence is like a “bestfriend” for writers in general, and poets in particular. For me, I love silence because I can be more “powerful”, productive and creative, so I can do contemplation and catch some inspirations before I write it down. I also can catch the feels and vibes from silence, so it gives me “power” to write a poem.
Silence seems gives birth to many poems through the poets’ hands. If you realized, actually a lot of my poetry tells about silence, whether the poetry I’ve writte on WordPress or the other site. The same thing I found not only in my poetry but also in others’ poetry. For poets, silence is often treated like “human” who can do human’s activities and has feeling. Silence is often treated like a “bestfriend” who always accompany you in every happiness and sadness. Silence is often treated like a “lover” who you can cuddle with.
Silence is love. Silence is power. Silence is inspirations. Silence is bestfriend. Silence is lover. So, what do you think? Do you need silence to create your amazing artwork (especially writing)? Or you’re the typical person who can work well on every condition and atmosphere?
Have a great day, everyone! Don’t forget to be happy.
Blank page Waiting for someone who’ll write it down Blank page Waiting for someone who’ll tell the stories Widened its ears to capture every word to memorize every meaning to give a comfort Blank page Waiting for someone who’ll take the heart out just to show what’s hidden and hidden what’s shown behind the poetry but, she couldn’t rhyme the words stop breathing cause she’a a poet who lost her pen
If the night gives birth to silence, then the silence will turn into a poem A poem needs breath Love is a poem’s breath A poem needs pulse Longing will keep the pulse ticking continuously A poem needs life after death A poet will revive it Blowing the spirit of imagination in every word I write Creating the title as its head Verses as its body Time and place as its legs
If a great poem was born from a broken heart, how many times do I have to be broken? Whereas broken heart always occur after falling in love Then, how do I manage it, if I’m a poet and lover at the same time?
