48th Anniversary 

You set foot on an unknown path assuming
It would be lined with roses and poetry
It turned out it was not like honey and nectar
But you went on since it was a fact of life

You endured all the hardships on the way
The days without electricity
The floor flooded with water when it was pouring outside
The allocation of food and water

You lived and dreamed of a brighter future
Sustained by the fruits grown on the path
Oh how fresh and delighted and adorable
You sucked them in and overcame
All the adversities in life.

Happy 48th Anniversary to Mom and Dad!

Jan 1st 2016

The New Year’s day
Is filled with fireworks
Rainbow lights and confetti
Meeting old friends and warm wishes

The ghosts of the past
Are fortunately far away
Yet the ghosts of the future
Miserably keep haunting me

Where are my new year’s resolutions?
Where are my colorful dreams?
Long gone are the days
I thought I could control my body

Let them explode –
Thoughts about old age and sickness
Let them transform into new kinds 
Of energy and dreams for me.

Happy New Year 2016!

Thoughts

Interactions of brain cells in the brain
Thoughts and their power
They teleport you to places
They control your feelings
And make you happy
Or drive you mad

Like streaks of crystal sunlight
Shining thru the clouds
Rare flashes of thought
That you need to catch right away
Never let them fade away

Thoughts
They come in waves
They sneak into your dreams
And take you on
unexpected paths

Thoughts about life
Thoughts about death
Thoughts that will elevate
your current life
or land you a better
spot in your next?

Ever thought of controlling
your thoughts?
