I'll Be Gone by Sundown

Wish I could rest for eternity
escape from all these miseries
I like to vanish, never to return
I won’t look back and run

The burden is just too much
I want to take off the latch
and leave everything behind
respite I long and I will find

with me are happy memories
that I will carry, towards the bliss
that I am hoping to stumble on
heal my heart that has been torn

I may be a coward or worst
But I am sure, I did my best
to fight off the enemy
that resides within me

I want to get away and ride the tide
be freed from these chains and hide

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.

Sometimes, to fight off the enemy within us is the most difficult thing ! Despair is also a dreadful enemy !

Those negatives inside us can only be shed when we choose to be positive. I know it seems like it is not a choice, but I've learned that it is. Poignant and powerful verse with a photo that shows there is light within darkness.

My battle is always against myself, I don't know why but when it strikes, it will surely hit me rough.


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