The world as I see it
Has changed a lot since I came to exist
I couldn’t help but witness the continuing shift
Traditional cultures and morality are being rift
A grim reality I can’t grip

Weird new norms are being forced to accept
People are scorned if they express to contradict
Depending on the issue or topic
And accused of being phobic
Fooling the submissive public

I understand that I am in conflict
With the weird new norms I hate to speak
Where this generation is adapting to it
Especially the young or millennials who loves to frolic
In this complex world gone ballistic

Hate me not for being pessimistic
The changing world would be drastic
It will spread like epidemic
A situation the world will never expect
Because the effect is colossal and tragic

China threatens war
Delivered in vernacular
Asked the Philippines not to raise the bar
Avoid UNCLOS and its particulars
Otherwise china will go for the jugular

China’s stern warning is not peculiar
The rhetoric sounds familiar
Adept in using psywar
Speak in stinging tongue like a scimitar
Lash out bold and vulgar

China’s action is unpopular
The threat is near similar
To the 1940’s that caused miserable war
The reason of it all is territorial
And domination against the other

China has gone too far
International laws are theirs to mar
They follow no rules because rouge they are
The world don’t pay much attention but stare
The huge economic benefit of china is what they care

The dragon’s long slumber
Made by the ideology of hammer and sickle
Awakened by the capitalist riddle
Became part of the caboodle
Started to breathe its first roar

Overtime its health became nimble
Its size started to double
The food intake is incredible
Can consume foods laid in an acre wide table
Ravenous, it consider all as edible

The beast roamed in a manner insatiable
Strayed away from its place so ample
Marked territories and claimed the resources alone
Threatened others if they express inhospitable
The beastly thing has become abominable

The untamed dragon is always looking for trouble
Its fiery mouth is intimidating as it flex its muscle
No one dare to challenge as if it is impossible
All seems vulnerable
The beast sees things as its domain to gobble

Take me to your heart in trouble
In there I will build you a castle
Make it stable
Not easy to crumble
Nor it will stumble
But formidable

Inside of it is my love so humble
That is so true and dependable
Not indifferent but responsible
Nil of sadness but cupid’s amour bustle
Every message of love written in epistle

The castle will be impenetrable
Any wannabe will be in big trouble
They will face me in battle
Protecting my ladylove is just as subtle
Assuring her that she will never fall

With my spear and armor I will wrestle
Fight every man who will get her out of my castle
Like a knight I will be in full throttle
Save my queen, my ladylove out of the pitfall
Stand beside her as a courageous man who’ve done it all

Imagine love
It makes a person inspired
Happy feelings all the time
It really is a cloud nine
Problems are washed in the brine

Imagine love
Sweet is a couple full of groove
Holds each other as they get involve
Misunderstandings are far remove
A relationship they approve

Imagine love
Makes a man crazy about his ladylove
Will take the moon and stars in the sky above
As if to show that she’s the one and only truelove
No lies and pretentions but perfect love

If you leave me now
Nothing I can do but to gnaw
It really hurts but I have to let you go
Your stern decision I have to follow
I know chance is dim wooing you

I blame myself for falling in love with you
For fooling myself that you will love me too
For believing that you could be my lady without further ado
For asking too much on my own self to boost my ego
Unfortunately all things goes to the drain down below

I couldn’t help but gather the memories and stow
For it to be hidden in the vast valley of sorrow
Never to be remembered and buried in a burrow
So as to forget things all about you
And for me to move on and find someone new

But often man live to death
Vice is the culprit
