R.S. Mallari

Heaven and Earth


she was a gem, a princess
living in a castle, lavish
I was a poor lad, worthless

porcelain skin, soft as silk
glimpse of her face makes me weak
one look from her, all it took

heaven has sided with a poor lad
goddess from her pedestal descended
able to see where she has landed

her overwhelming grace stunned me
she smiled, the sweetest I've seen
made me think more, am I worthy?

took me forever, to hold her hand
oblivious I almost trip on the sand
all changed, when she said I'm her man

Heaven needs Earth to know its worth
and even gods and goddesses need a cohort

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.
