To Ms. Congeniality

Poem By John Hazon Palen

You're still young, bright, innocent
He's unworthy, liar, impenitent
You cry without argument
though hurts to you went

Like a penny in the rain you've been
Out from his pocket you're sent
You gave love like extra change
But all it gave back was pain

Optimism really goes blind sometimes..
But you're right keeping that beauty inside
Seeing you though angels never arrived,
Committing peace does make one shine.

(This poem of mine is all about for my dear elder sister who happened to find guys with attitudes so mean and then left her. I want to encourage her thru this poem to get over 'em and go on living! Yeah! ! !)

I am on the passenger side,
Daydreaming to the sky
The day's bright and full of life.. then
In a mile, I caught your sight


Summer after high school, I recall
You're beautiful, my eyes rolled
The time we met by the low sunset,
All things in life then went great

Glimpse To A Passenger Seat On A Friday Night

I'm standing there, had watched the bus
To another town, it runs so fast
It's a roller-coaster kinda rush,
Picturing in mind your casted blast

A Prayer

I asked God for strength, that I
...might achieve
I was made weak, that I might learn
...humbly to obey...

Through Life's Challenge

The way's hard thru seas with playful waves.
It's like you can't be any brave.
Everything around slows your pace,
But this poem's made to give you faith.
