“Posy” – Alabang, 15 October 2015

this is

not

the time

for rash

acts

or brutal

gestures;

nor is

this

the time

for loud

hysteria,

swearing and

cursing

one’s foes

to the

heavens

calling for

retribution.

 

now

is the

time

to retreat

to relax

to reconsider

repercussions

of the

past,

of decisions

made

of words

said

in haste

in distress

in anger.

 

i hide

away,

cloistering

hiding

squirreling

myself

away from

the world,

the hustle

the bustle

the madness

the mayhem

that left

me

but a

husk

of a

previous self.

 

wrap myself

in a

cocoon,

allow the

bud

to swell

to grow;

to let

myself

be more

aware

of the

power

at my

fingertips

and finally

let myself

bloom.
