R.S. Mallari

Expat on Board


my mind is in chaos
emotions in mutiny
I want to freeze time
hold the earth in my palm
stop the sun set
for tomorrow I have to set sail
another year I must bear
leave my beloved
and face life without living
sleep without rest
as the emptiness
will be my cohort
loneliness will be my blanket
strength I seek
to carry on
not for me
but for my love ones
that I will leave behind

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
