My Sundry Thought about Daylight Saving Time

My Sundry Thought about Daylight Saving Time

excuse me!
wait for a minute
I wanna clarify 
whether I heard you right
or it was just my wild imagination.

let me have a couple minutes to think
over
about
what you’ve jut said.

“daylight saving time?”
I still don’t get it
are you sure you know what you were talking about?
I am afraid
to say
that
either would you be insane
or would you be kidding me.

how could it be possible for us?
how
would
any mortal being
save his living time
which is continuously zipping by like a rocket?

certainly, you can physically set back an hour or so
on your a fancy modern wristwatch,
on your expensively antique grandfather clock,
or
on any device,
that you use to measure time.
regardless whatever you desperately do, you make no difference for your day.

ain’t it ironic?
modern man always let his life depend too much on
an abstract concept
the so-called
time .

Do Not Worry

Do Not Worry

After, I die 
I’d be gone for good
I wouldn’t mind whether my enemies happily laugh at,
or my loved ones hysterically cry for, my death.

Go ahead;
do whatever you prefer about my grave,
I
really
don’t care
even you pee at,
or deface, my tombstone.

However, I am afraid
you would be disappointed
to find
no grave of mine
as, I don’t want to have my remains buried,
then gradually
rotten,
and become food
for worms and micro-organisms.

Furthermore, I might die in a plane crash
or in a natural disaster
in
which
my remains would be
perished and never found.

Also, I am thinking
of
other
possibilities;
either would I donate the corpse for medical purposes
or would I have it cremated and spread anywhere

So,
no point
to worry about my own death
while I am still kicking alive.

When I get out of here,
someone else will take care
of
all problems
which are left behind by ME.

I’ll rest in peace
with
absolutely
no worry at all.

My Lost Love

My Lost Love

the love, which I have just lost;
even
if 
someone
has found it
returned to god’s lost-and-found section.
it must be too late for me to have it back.

it’s too much to take;
I couldn’t believe it.
my heart’s shattered;
my mind’s frozen;
my soul’s dying.
I’m buried deep inside a Satan’s burning hell.

oh
no.
it ain’t
the truth,
but a nightmare,
in a maze with many layers of bad dreams.

please help stop this the terrifying trance.
wake me up, please
‘til
I would come back
right
to
the moment
which i was just falling in love.

The Universe Without YOU

The Universe Without YOU

YOU are the only one
whom
i’ve loved 
i’ve cared for
and i’d die for .

even
the earth is spinning
the sun is shinning
everything is still fully intact.
yet, you’re no longer here.
not much
left
for me to be inspired,
for my life to be bright.

love
would be eternal,
as in my wild dream,
at the time, i fell in love with you.

even though, I know this world is over-populated,
with billions of people out there.
but not YOU
the one,
whom
I’ve been always thinking of.

The universe,
without
YOU,
is emptily meaningless.
it’s a hell that burns my heart eternally.

Death is the Only Guarantee for Life

Death is the Only Guarantee for Life,

not 
much
you can do about it
whether death worries you,
it bothers you,
or it scares you.

death is a lifetime guarantee
without
any exception.
all mortal beings must go back to dust.

unfortunately, no guarantee
for
the dream
of being re-born.

also no warranty regardless how much one has paid
in full amount,
in advance,
for the reservation
of a seat in heaven.

absolutely,
no money back.
even, one would find out after his death
such a prepaid ticket was just an artistic scam.

anyway,
life
itself is a precious gift
which depends very much on us
of
how each of us
would like to spend it.

some prefer to trade
for
money,
fame and glory,
or power and authority, etc.
others love to keep and enjoy it for themselves.

it doesn’t matter much
how one decides to do with his life
so long as, he doesn’t regret at these last minutes
by the time, he checks
out of
here.

The Cycle O’ Life and Death

The Cycle O’ Life and Death

i’ve been strolling around for many years.
sometimes,

wonder
where would I be ended up?

i would be like a patch of cloud
which is wandering away and eventually vanished
at the unknown
horizon?

an autumn
leaf
flies away from its branch;
it always goes back to its roots.
would i be the same?
when i am out of here,
i’d go back
to
the place
i originally came from.

it’s my forever sweet home
where i’ll take a hot bath and a good rest
then i stay for awhile to recharge my energy;
before i‘d be drifted again to another world
through an endless cycle
of
life
and death.

Trick or Treat in the Halloween Season in U.S.A.

Trick or Treat in the Halloween Season in U.S.A.

Most leaves
of
course, 
except the evergreen
have nearly fall off those trees.

Here
it comes
tonight is the end of October;
Halloween is the amazing season of kids’ and dentists’.

Small children, especially teenagers
in scary costumes
are roaming
about
from one neighborhood
to many others for trick or treat.
of
which
dentists will harvest
the fruitful outcomes later.

However
in the adults’ scary world
of the United States of America
the Halloween has already started at the beginning of this year
Zombies have nearly taken over the whole country
they have infested many cities and states
the United States Capitol
and the House
painted
White.

All kids must go back to school tomorrow
for
them
Halloween is absolutely over.
however, the adults’ trick or trick is messily scary
this fun game wouldn’t end
until
either all humans are terminated
or all those zombies would be sent back to their tombs

No Secret Under the Sun

No Secret Under the Sun

we could never know
what
someone has
concealed inside his own pocket.

no valid point
for
us to make
any false assumption
about what is really inside.
we also have no right to violate someone’s own privacy.

It is so true
“no secret under the sun”.

For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest.
we’d better take the “wait and see” approach;
sooner
or
later,
the truth must reveal by itself.

nobody would fool everyone forever
even the most skillful scam artist
who
eventually
will be caught red-handed
and he’ll pay a costly price
for
deceiving people
and robbing their trust.
