My poison

I need to take this poison out of me.
I need to love myself.
Then I can love others.

Where’s the medicine?
Give me the antidote!
To heal myself
And be happy among others.

I need to change
And strive in life,
But with this poison in me
I’ll be alone & angry at the same time.

Forget what happened.
It’s in the past.
Live in the present,
So my future will last.

Don’t get poison again,
Keep the antidote near.
I might need it again,
To heal from more fears.

Don’t leave me!
Please, give me a chance.
I just need to heal,
To be happy at last.

You’re friendship is medicine,
It helps me get better.
If you walk away
I’ll never love ever.

Just one opportunity,
That’s all I ask,...

ONCE MORE

Another man,
another heartbreak.
Another great dream,
has vanished to leave me broken.

One more to tell,
One more to count,
That leaves me depressed
and will make me drown.

I guess that’s true,
It looks like that’s real.
I’m not what they seek,
Nor they want to keep near.

I don’t mesmerize their eyes,
Or their heart skips a beat,
I’m just their loyal friend,
that will always help them in here.

When it’s my time?
When will this end?
The bad luck of being smart?
Or is it being myself?

My illusions grew,
With a picture of the future,
In my hopeless head,
As a couple so fruitful.

In vain my dreams were,
And reality won’t become.
It is only a sweet fantasy
...

It's me!

Hey it's me,
Can you hear me?
I'm a little busy,
But I'll help you once I finished.

You need me now,
But I can't make it,
I'm just busy
Writing this essay.

Okay I'll help you,
You don't have to yell,
Don't get angry,
I'll have to postpone the essay, but for when?

Okay I'm finished.
The dishes are clean,
I'm gonna write my essay,
Meanwhile you were just watching tv.

Yeah it's raining, like I foretold,
That's why the laundry is not done,
Cause I don't wanna do double work,
But I have to since you didn't believed what I told.

Where did you get that?
Oh wait that's mine!
Why don't you get yours
Too late, you can have mine.
You're too delicate to even try.

            Where Is My Friend?

'I need help' said my friend,
'I don't feel well,'
'My problems are drowning me'
'I need my friends'

So I rushed to his help,
And was by his side.
To make him feel better,
That was on my mind.

I'm not a magician.
I couldn't make it go away.
Just a friendly voice
That would say 'it will be okay'.

Better he felt
And like himself he looked.
Then he walked along,
And forgot me in a bloom.

'He's busy', I thought
And excuses I made,
To explain his own,
And to try to be okay.

Now I cry often,
Now I don't feel well.
And one thing I wonder,
Where is my friend?

-Ena Luz.

I've always wondered,
Why are the broken ones always the ones to help others feel better?

After much wondering, I have come to conclude: because they know what it feels to be broken and they don't want anyone to feel like that. That's why they always help those who need a shoulder to cry.

Although at some point, everyone has been broken, those who are whole try to stay away. Because in order to help a broken person, one has to know how it feels and no one wants to feel that way.

Once the heart is whole again, going near the broken seems counterproductive. But the broken hearts always console other broken ones, because they know how much it hurts to not have a complete heart.

My strength

Just when I thought
'The storm has passed'
A new obstacle is about to start,
And I must face it at once.

Just when I thought
'It's done, now I can relax,'
A challenge has come my way
And I can't run away.

Is this fight ever going to end?
Or it will just perpetuate?
I just hope my strength
Can help me stay until the end.

My strength is running out,
I don't know what to do,
how can I refuel?
If my hope doom.

To never stop moving
What else is there,
To continue living
And catch my breath.

-Ena Luz.

Love is not for me

Is always the same story.
A perpetual script with an unchanged ending.
I try new hobbies and experiment with strange things,
Yet the same sad ending,
is always reached.

Am I trying to hard?
Or maybe I did something wrong?
Which ever it is,
I'm thinking, nothing is real.

I long to belong,
But is a stage strange to me.
A pretty girl, with a nice smile,
But happiness doesn't live in me.

Loved I don't feel,
And happiness disappears,
An empty smile, like a dead willow,
That's all that is here.

As unchanged as this remains,
Acceptance is near,
A sad fate that is mine,
And will always be here.

Nothing to do,
But wait for the end.
A miracle, perhaps, might fin...

Dehumanizing a family member that is younger than you, doesn't make you a better human being. It's the opposite, it dehumanizes yourself. It's not a competition of who is the best human, is about helping each other achieve our goals. Since you are dehumanizing me, don't expect me to be human towards you up to your standards. I'm very much a human and belong to the human raze, too bad you can't see it nor enjoy it. That is on you, not me.

Always hurting

Three years have passed
And it still hurts like it was yesterday.
Not because of what he did,
But because he is proud of breaking my heart.

I guess that's how he builds his masculinity, along with his muscles.
Too bad he doesn't build the most important muscle, his brain.

I guess collecting hearts is more important than growing his intellect.

He is out living his life,
Remembering the great time he had when he broke my heart.
While I'm still trying to fix the broken pieces of my heart.

I'm not the same girl I used to be when I met him. I'm stronger, tougher, wiser and my skin is thicker. But I have come to realize that my heart will never be whole again, all becau...

It takes a second to destroy a building through implosion, but it could take years to rebuild it. The same way it can take a moment to hurt someone and destroy them, but it could take years to rebuild themselves.
You hurt me in a moment but it has taken me years to rebuild myself since then.

Lo peor que le pueda pasar a una persona es pertenecer a una familia que no te acepta tal y como eres. Como no eres igual a ellos, nombran enfermedades y condiciones para obligar asistir a médicos. Eso es lo que hace la religión? Tildan a la gente diferente con enfermedades y condiciones solo por que no son iguales a ellos.
Por que no se ponen a pensar como influenciaron ellos esas actitudes de ser diferente. O mejor aun, aceptarlos tal y como son, aunque no sean como ellos quieren.

Never confuse my silence with ignorance, my calmness with acceptation or resignation and my courtesy with weakness. Because you don't know what goes on in my mind. I might just choose to not defend my points to someone that is too egotistic to admit his wrong and too ignorant to understand me. Sometimes is just better to walk away and let life provide with its difficult teachings.

At the train station I stand
But a boring ticket I don't seem to have.
I walk around and hesitantly ask,
So a ticket I can finally have.

I hear the whistle, and the train starts to pack,
And a ticket I was not able to have.

I see my friends waving at me from the train,
And that guy whom I left,
Happy on board of the train,
While I just look in despair.

Maybe it's not my time,
Maybe that's not my train,
I'll stand and wait for the next one,
Hopefully I'll still be there.

Although happy for my friends I am,
And hopeful I seem to be,
Scary it is to know,
That the train left without me.

To wait at the train station,
Is that how it's meant to be.
I rather walk away from the stati...

You are a good friend?
You really think you are a good friend?

Friend is that who appears
When sadness is present
When insults come around
A friend defends you

If a friend shows up
Only to put on heels and wear revealing clothes
That's a friend interested in a party

A real friend calls you out on ones mistakes
Not condones you on it

If you wanted to be my friend
You should have defended me when that harlot hurt me

You really think she is your friend?
She's an interested friend not a real friend.

If what you have with her is a real friendship,
You should have told her what she was doing to me was wrong

Instead you applauded her
And condone her actions
Because it was conve...

Not For Me

I see him and he sees me,
I smile and he winks,
I look around but he stares at me,
He is my friend and that's all he should be.

I walk around
Trying to deceive
But he finds me
And stares back at me

He touches my hair
And smells my perfume
Inclines on to me
Like a thief to his jewel  

His muse is here
I wonder, has she seen?
I better escape
Before he steals

Why is this happening?
Why with me?
Might be my beauty
Or the rum he drinks

This is not real
He is not meant to be
Once he's sober  
He'll get away from me

He's meant for his muse
That is his queen
I'm just a gypsy
Who'm he chase when he drinks

The queen is loyal to me
Betrayed she will never be

Hello stranger
It was disappointing to see you tonight,
Because I saw you are still the same jerk I met.

But I wish you the best,
And wether I succeed or fail,
I hope I never have to see you again.

Not innocent

You still act as if you didn't do anything,
You believe yourself innocent of my sorrows and misery,
But you are as guilty as your partner,
My sadness grew because of your actions.

Go ahead, wash your hands, and put on an innocent face,
But you know you can't hide your dirtiness from me.

You were the girl whom he went after,
And despite your knowledge of what he had done to me,
You still stay with him.
You couldn't help but to rub it in my face, because you thought that made you better than me,
Oh poor girl, who thinks that she is doing good when she is lowering herself to a harlot tramp.

Oh now you are crying, because he did the same thing to you.
Poor tramp was not sma...

I wish I could find the cure of cancer,
I wish I could be, for Israel and Palestine, the peacemaker,
I wish I could be the conqueror of ISIS, and for the Middle East, the liberator.

I wish I could shake Nepal, for it to be back the way it was,
I wish I could bring parents to all orphans, and houses to all homeless.

I wish I could bring water to the desert, and a river to the savanna.
I wish I could bring food to the hungry, and money to the poor.
I wish I could save the world from war, and earth from pollution,
But above all, I wish you could be with me.

Ojalá  Madre Luna.

Ojalá la luna fuera mi madre,
Porque ella nunca me abandona,
Y siempre me compadece,
aunque ella siempre este sola.

Si la luna fuera mi madre,
nunca estuviera sola,
por qué ella fuera mi fiel compañera,
Y su fidelidad nunca es rota.

Aunque se aleja durante el día,
en la noche siempre me abriga,
Y con su suave resplandor,
mi soledad ilumina,

Para darme la fortaleza que necesito,
Para enfrentar el crudo día,
y esperar con paciencia su llegada,
cuando la noche caiga,
para contarle de mis fuertes hazañas,
qué de tanto orgullo sienta,
y llena la luna se vea.

Si yo fuera hija de la luna,
la soledad no fuera dura,
y a pesar de que sola yo esté,
contenta con mi pr...

Dear mom

It's been a long time
Since I last felt your love
It's been a while
Since I was held in your arms

And it's all not my fault,
But because you made it so,

You chose to stay away,
Because someone else loves you better than myself,
And even though you claimed your greatest love was for me,
With your new love, I could not race.

And now you wonder,
Why I'm distant from you,
Because I could not bear to know
That my first protector and the first love I felt,
In front of my eyes, finally broke.

So now I question, if my own mother,
Would prefer to love other than me,
I can imagine how many more people would change their care for someone other than my love.

I guess the love I hav...

How many times will I have to suffer,
How many more heartbreaks I'll have to go through,
How many more back stabbers will show their true colors,

No matter how many times,
I keep getting back up,
But people don't know,
I'm about to give up.

Give up in humanity,
Give up on love,
Because I have cry so much,
I no longer feel my heart.

Heartless is the answer,
That's the only way,
To keep on breathing,
And keeping myself sane.

I'm always thinking about the future,
Always worrying about it,
Which keeps me from enjoying the present.
The only time I have enjoyed the present is... When I've been in love.

Quitting is not about giving up, but about understanding when is the right time to go, because of the certainty that there is something better.
