Character

At the point in my life where tables have turned
Fingers burned
Is the point where I am revealed

Mano-a-Womano

I’m not looking for Jolie’s eyes

Dion’s style or Theron’s smile

Neither am I fascinated by Lopez’s thighs

I’m not so into Alba’s cute face

The runway supermodels or magazine’s front face


All I want is you to be YOU

No hidden agenda,

Just open, loving and true

In Your Shoes

I see the world through your eyes

Your beautiful eyes


I hear the harsh words through your ears

Your beautiful ears


My tears roll down your face

Your beautiful face


I’ll be more gentle

I now know what it’s like to be in your shoes

Ode for Mama/Papa

I’ll love you now

As much as I can

I’ll make you proud

To have me as your son



I’m not sure about tomorrow

Yours or mine

But I’ll make today

Worth a thousand smiles



I can’t thank you enough

For bringing me up proper

For wanting the best for me

Praying for me to prosper



All lessons learned

I’ll surely pass on

Parent to child

Generation to generation

De-linked

All those years

All the laughter and tears

All the joy, all the pain

In a heartbeat buried and forgotten

She & He Yin & Yang

Her perception, beyond sensory;
She hears my silent heart desires
Tastes my thoughts
and writes words straight on my heart
She radiates throughout my whole
and is embodied in my physical, and my soul
Yin & Yang; together we are whole

..On Adversity

Thank You Lord for this struggle,
For the rough storm, for all the trouble,
For the seemingly never-ending situation,
The 'nos' & isolation,
It is well with my soul,
Before we rise we sometimes need to fall,
Adversity is the best teacher of all

Toshi

The Silence of God (when miracles happen)

When there's pin-drop silence,and you don't see any signs
Don't lose hope, God is working behind the scenes
Have faith, stand still, and leave it all to Him
He shall answer in His time, Nothing's beyond the King of Kings

On Friendship

In life there are;
friendships we make
friendships we break

in friendships we prosper
through friendships we despair

in friendships we laugh
in friendships we cry

for friendships we live
in friendships we die

I have but my eyes to cry (J'ai que mes yeux pour pleurer)

There was a time in my life I knew I'll always have it all
Someone to support me, pick me up whenever I fall
But life had other plans, I lost you much sooner
But your teachings will never die; they will last forever
From generation to generation your wisdom shall be passed
And in the hearts of those you touched forever you will last

I can't thank you enough for how you shaped my life
Only these tears I cry to express my love and gratitude inside

On Leadership

For I am nothing without the Whole
and the Whole nothing without me

Toshi
