A Light Ahead


There’s only light ahead to see
As this alley at midnight remains to be
No sound to hear from near or far
To remain alone with these junked cars

The soft fall of rain that’s grown from drizzle
‘Tis not likely to slow or fizzle
But will keep up with the flow of my emotions
As I struggle for remission

Keeping my composure
Despite the feeling of failure
And the heavy feel inside my heart
As I try to come to terms with the necessary hurt

One lone street lamp stands afar
The light streams out to jar
With steely determination it shines through
To push forth what is true

Amid the gloom
And the feeling of doom-
No matter how dreary
And of being weary-

The light ahead
It remains, no matter how worried

There should be no deluge tonight


Never Ending Cycle Of Materialism


Shot of the day.

Was walking home through the junkyard next to where we live after picking my little baby brother up from his tutor’s place and came upon this really great sky moment. Just had to take this photo, as it captures how the old is right next to the new in this city of Macau.

Also, the car featured in this shot really isn’t old looking when I was right next to it, but it’s been junked. It’s sad to think of the waste being produced as people throw away their possessions that are still in pretty good shape, just to acquire new and trendy objects to replace supposedly outdated models. But no matter how much people who care do try to spread the word, there’s still ignorance all around prevailing no matter what. That doesn’t mean it would be best to give up on a good cause, but just to persevere even more.

Anyhow, the car ties in really well with the sunset as it is seeing the end of its existence. To me, it’s quite poetic, but that’s just my opinion.
