R.S. Mallari

I Am Just Like You


To those who've lost their way
Take two knots aback, contemplate
Regain composure then set sail

You, who have lost the will to move on,
Rekindle your childhood, ignite a spark
Reset your priorities then dream again

Them, who have suffered and gave up,
Look back, there is always someone behind
Muster all the courage you got, stand up

The past cannot be changed, do not attempt
Retrospect, learn and revise the script
Make your own destiny, devise your own fate

I am with you in all of these, I am one of you
A lost soul finding my way back towards the path
We can make a pact, our dreams we’ll pursue


The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion.  As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew." - Abraham Lincoln

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.
