OVERCOME FEAR OF FAILURE by Dex Amoroso ( My Pen & Soul Featured Poet)

To control your life

You must control the mind

The cheat codes, go find

Use it in the game of life 

Walk through walls, on fire.

Fly anywhere that you desire.

Embrace the pain.

Invite the pain. 

Have pain over for lunch with you

Ask to teach you all its lessons.

Watch the lions that used to chase you

Turn into tame little kittens. 

It’s not craziness or courage,

It’s the understanding and notion;

That you are not discourage

Even the most intense emotions 

When accepted rather than resisted

Can only help forge a better version of you.

Never feel bitter and twisted

No body can overcome fear of failure but YOU.©️Dex Amoroso

A Biography of the author:

Dexter Amoroso is a registered writer and book editor at National Book Development Board. He authored the 5-star rated “Rustic Charm” and “STAY-AT-HOME DAD: Makin’ Popcorns and Wiping Their Turn To Pop Is Coming, but Don’t Poop At The Same Time!” and co-author of a number of international anthology of poetry, short stories and flash fiction books. He is a member of Pinoy Writers Toastmasters Club and one of the administrators at Filipino Poets in Blossom. He also wrote a short story titled “A Jungle At His Doorstep” and got published in ILA Magazine, an international and prestigious literary magazine. He is a former quality professional who has changed careers and wants to enter the world of teaching.

He subscribes to Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences as it is one of the highest truisms, but he adds another intelligence called “intuition”. And he argues that intuition is the highest form of intelligence as it can identify and target a particular thought or feeling. Intuition is instinct…you don’t think at all but it just comes to your mind…a thought, a feeling, a gut feel. He believes that intelligence cannot be measured only by the ability to do one task. As per what institutionalised education does to gauge intellect. Exposing children to various stimuli will expand their horizons. This will also deepen them as individuals.

While at home fathering his two little boys, he formed a small team and named it Mount Thesis. They assist clients in their thesis writing. They are Mountain Guides like Mt. Everest Sherpas. They guide climbers, they are ahead because they lead …but clients climb with them, so they learn too.

Becoming a father is the best job he has ever had.

Believe in Your Dreams(An Acrostic Poem)

B_e not afraid in chasing your wonderful  dreams
E_ven if you have  told yourself you have done enough
L_ive your  life with  determination in times darkness bask your schemes 
I_n moments of sorrows , don’t  give up,   be tough
E_ven if sadness persuades everything, never stop
V_ictory will be acclaimed from essence of courage
E_very dream can be attained no matter what’s your age

I_mpossibilities become possible if you believe
N_o one can ever stop you for your dreams to  be achieved

Y_ou have to trust in something, your talents and skills
O_nly you can tell yourself you can ,when no one else will
U_nderstand in every plan you have you think positively
R_eason we get discouraged because we listen to negativity

D_on’t let people pull you down even if they’re your friends or family
R_each your dream , but remember that you must be happy
E_verything fails, if your success puts your life in  misery
A_lways look after yourself, your health and your  spirituality
M_ake your dreams come true, through the guidance of the Almighty
S_et your goals , do it now , blessings & success will follow tremendously

“Respeto”

Ipinanganak ka ng buong kagalakan
Iyong mukha’y kanilang pinagmasdan
Ang pananabik hindi kailan man lumisan
Ika’y dinamitan ng ayon sa kanilang kagustuhan

Dumating ang panahon na ika’y lumaki na
Mga bagay para sa iyo ay normal nguni’t hindi sa iba
Iyong nakahiligang laruin ay iba sa nais nilang makita
Ngunit para sa iyo ito’y mga bagay na sa’yo
Ay nakapagpapasaya

Sa salid aralan ikaw ay nanatiling mapag isa
Pinag mamasdan bawat kamag aral isa isa
Sinusuri kung sino ba iyong kakaibiganin
Kung sila ba ay makaiintindi sa iyong damdamin

Pag uwi ng tahanan ,sa iyong nararamdaman
Walang makausap
Itinatagong pilit sa pangambang husgahan
Ng iba
Ang kwadernong may susi na lamang
Ang nakakayakap
At unan sa gabi ay sumasalo sa pumapatak na
mga luha

Lumipas ang panahon ikaw ay natuto ng humanga
Damdamin ay pilit mong pinipigilan, sa takot sa
Sasabihin ng iba
Sa iyong pakiramdam ito ay kamaliang kay hirap itama
Kahit na wala kang tinatapakang mga paa

May mga araw na iyong nasasaksihan
Pangungutya ng kapwa sa parehong kasarian
Iyong mga tenga’y dinig ang kanilang pang-aalipusta
Kahit ang hinuhusgahan ay hindi nila kilala

Ang tanong mo sa iyong sarili, bakit ako nandirito
Bakit ako ipinanganak sa aking pagkatao
Nararamdaman ay iba ngunit iba ang anyo
Ang respeto ba mula sa kapwa ay magmumula dito

Naisipan mong sarilinin bawat mga bagay
Pinilit mong ang sarili sa kanila’y makibagay
Ngunit iyong puso ay hindi nararamdaman ang saya
Sapagkat hindi matanggap ang sarili dahil sa iba

Sambit sa sarili kung mundo’y hindi mapanghusga
Siguro lahat ang nararamdaman ay malaya
Kung respeto ay makukuha kahit hindi ka kilala
Siguro mapupuno ang bawat puso ng ginhawa

Walang isinilang para na lamang husgahan
Walang may karapatan upang pagkatao ng iba ay
Tapakan
Sapagkat sa mundong ito lahat pantay pantay
Respeto ang maiiwan kung sumakabilang buhay

Iyong natanto may mga bagay na dapat sarilinin
Kung ito ay magdudulot ng sakit ng damdamin
Mahirap ba ang maging mabait kesa mapangkutya?
O ito’y dahilan para pansinin din ng kapwa

Iba iba man ang kulay ng tao , estado,anyo o kasarian
Hindi ito dahilan upang tingin sa sarili ay taasan
Maging mapagkumbaba kesa banggitin ang hindi
Kaaya ayang salita
Sapagka’t hindi lang ang hinuhusgahan ang sa iyo’y
nakakakita.

Bakas ang lungkot sa iyong mukha
Pinipilit na hindi pansinin ang mga taong mapanghusga
Minsan ramdam sa sarili ang nais na magpakalayo
Sa lugar sa kung saan mag iiba ang takbo ng mundo

Iyong kakayahan ay ang doon papansinin
Ang iyong katauhan ay buong pusong tatanggapin
May tengang handang makinig sa iyong sasabihin
Na hindi alintala ang damdaming nais sambitin

You look Familiar To Me by Jhake Morales (My Pen & Soul Featured Poet)

Stunned! I had this disoriented impression

I feel like I am so lost on verge of confusion

It appears that I’ve been taken over by a doppelganger

I changed a lot, the way I behave and even my manner.

I’m looking at the man  standing in front of the mirror 

I could hardly recognize him- felt like hollow

I know him 10 years ago

Now, he comes off so new.

Oops! I remember you now! What an abrupt change you had!

you’ve got a mustache and you’re now bald

with the mustache, you sound wiser when you speak

with the bald head, a  foolish man on the way you think.

you dress up like a boss

you messed up! still, gross

a respected man inside his office

At home, a discourteous man and lawless 

You look wealthy

Your pocket is full of money

Your lifestyle is unhealthy

Brandy, whiskey, and nicotine reside in your body.

Congratulations! You achieved everything you wanted

But where is the wisdom that once in your head was planted?

Where is kindness that in your heart was seeded?

 If these are the fruits, These are not worthy to be harvested!

I am now staring at the  man, face to face

Bit by bit he has gone too far 

I can see the happiness when he smiles

But sadness is striking from his eyes 

Oh please bring back your old self

Where contentment in  spirit dwells

Where you still know how to give and to share

Where success  is just steps and stairs

And not a place where our souls burn like hell 

Now, tell me who you were ten years ago?

What transformations did you consider yourself had grown?

 My doppelganger should have been a better version of me

 Not the worst rendition of myself that I see.

Good future starts from home

What causes quarrels , what causes fights

What makes children decide which is wrong or which is right

The truth is each of them were born innocents, 

Is this  the root of human predicament?

Love begins at home and so as discipline

Guidance from family is an imperative thing

Introduce God as early ,  so they may follow the creed

Nurture them,  emphasize the difference of wants from needs

Teach them how to be compassionate while they’re young 

Raise a pet at home or plant a tree to grow

Teach them to be patient , give them time  to understand 

Every little thing that matters that they need to know

Support their talents , develop their passions

This is the only way to divert their attentions

From peer pressure and unknown insecurities

The more they know, it opens the opportunities

Teach them how to fish, so they will learn to  strive

So later  in life they they will learn how  to survive 

Educate them so they will know things not only by the books

Emphasize that everyone deserves respect not only by how  they look

It will start in a loving home with loving family that cares

Their  paths will be lightened from words of God that  we share

Let the children dream, and believe what they can do

What matters is the moral support that comes from me & you

“Teacher, a Rainbow of Hope”

She moves the world,  she gives hope that dreams could happen

She is  a gift from God ,like an angel  sent 

from heaven

A sage creature beyond compare,

Knowledge she always ought to share

She herself exist in her dedicated yet free spirit 

She touches students lives since  they were kids

Her words of praises blossom like flowers

Encouragements that remain in the heart forever

For you she may seems  to care a little

But for her she cares about you not being belittled

She will do her best to strengthen your heart

To walk with honor to shine gracefully above

She is a teacher, a rainbow of hope

Her fruit of knowledge helps each human soul

Her love of learning may dispense in this world

So dreams will come true and shine like a gold

Since The Day You Were Born

God gifted us since the day you were born

You’re so perfect in your own human form

You have the most sweetest face my darling

Since then we knew you are our everything

You give us all the hope from things we face

Nothing else in this world can take your place

With  you our home became the happiest place

You’ve given love since the day you were born

How I  love to stare to your lovely face

You’re so angelic with  delicate form

You have scattered magic in  everything

You’re the best ever present my darling

 

Your giggles  keep us going my darling

You spread happiness all throughout our place 

Meaning of  family is everything

Importance you give on day you were born

This  can’t be replaced in luxurious form

All we need is your sweet and lovely face

I see your father when I see your face

Both of you are my life’s  world my darling

This place with you now has a joyful form

In this earth you give me a homey place

Ninety years you’re  the very first girl born

You are very special in everything

From then on  you became my everything

Each time I’m not with you , I see your face

Keeps reminding me on day you were born

You’re precious my Trinity my Darling

Thoughts about you never leave mommy’s  place

You are  a miracle came in human form

Miracles do happen in any form

One of them was you my everything

You are such a life and  joy of our place

Being with you no burdens we can’t  face

This is so true my sweetheart,my darling

You brought light  to us the day you were born

Writing this poem for you  makes my tears form

I can’t live without you my everything

You gave me purpose the day your were born

First Sestina poem I wrote , I will recheck this again in few days .

An Old Book with Lessons

 I put my makeup on to look younger for the day

Facing the mirror, I could think of nothing to say

I see myself as a lonely rose trying to look so young

With petals getting old, so soon to thrung

Oh my sad leaves will soon get dry and  fall

A lonely tree with branches that will get so weak to hold

How will I get the courage to stand firm?

When people see my mind as nothing to affirm

To few  I was an old woman with brooding thoughts

Sad they were the ones enamored my younger life 

But how my listless appearance will bring joy to their world

My hope they envisage that I could still be their light

Triumphantly yet heartbreakingly  at the same time

Grateful that I reach this age carrying my lessons in life

Sad that I’m nothing to some people’s eyes

But I know in my heart I am an old book with lessons ,to read is worth to try

An Autumn Song by Me & You

Strumming my guitar strings

Rhyming with the autumn falling leaves

While  the birds  lovely sing

A comfort within starts to live

Music from my heart

Tunes that fly with the wind

It reaches the shining stars

As well as  the moonlight gleam

How I love playing my music in silence

It lingers in my heart and nimbles in my soul

It leads my hand to pen my musings

For the one I love, who keeps me whole

Under the moonlight in autumn breeze

Here’s  the song inspired by you

While my music and  thoughts start to kiss

An autumn song is finally made by me & you

My Love is So Pure

My love dear is  deeper than the ocean 

It is a river that flows emotions 

You are my light, much brighter than the sun

You are my might, my dear my only one 

Nothing in this world for you I won’t keep 

Promises made will always bring delight 

My intention is whiter  than the sheeps

So pure , so sincere like moon in the night

I would like you to hear, these words I know

Like music to your ears , more than feelings

More than anything this heart will ever show

My love that will tell my inner being

And yet it’s you , who makes me happy above

And it’s  you I believe to fight for my love
