...By myself

I live alone in my small house

All lonely my myself

***

And when I make a lovely meal

I eat it by myself

***

And if I find a funny cause

I laugh all to myself

***

And if by chance I feel some pain

I feel it by myself

***

Even now that I write this poem

I’m writing by myself

***

And if it’s good I cannot tell

Because I’m by myself

***

And if I find it hard to sleep

I stay keen by myself

***

And as a boy without brethren

I played, but with myself

***

And when I feel the urge to speak

I talk all to myself

***

E’en when I keel to pray to God

I pray all by myself

***

I talk a walk out o’ my house

And I see for myself

***

That I alone must face the world

And face it by myself

***

Ocean Waves

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
