A new poetry e-book by Ally L is available now! The new e-book, Sorry, I Gave Up is a compilation of poems written between 2018-2019. The theme is about how some people took a different path in life and found themselves in difficult places. Download it for free!
Sorry, I Gave Up is the fourth e-book since my last one. The last one was published in 2017. The main reason I published it is that I want to make it easier for others to read my work. It might be a hassle to go to my website and go through each post one by one. So, like what I did years ago, the new e-book will cover all the poems I posted here from 2018 till 2019.
When I was compiling all the poems, I realized a strong main theme, hardship. If I recall correctly, those two years were mostly about me being busy with work and how it took a toll on my creativity. I was too busy that I don’t really have time for myself, or to connect and socialize with others. I got myself plunged into depression and I feel that I lost my creative self.
Hopefully, this will help me to be motivated to compile more and complete a couple of personal projects. Again, please help by downloading the book and giving it a review. It will make my day happier. Wishing everyone a great and productive week ahead!
He left his squared glass chamber, Without looking anywhere else, Except for the large view outside, Cars down the road, A branch of the slow current river, Still of countless tall buildings, And the vast cloudy sky,
He stared outside, Yet his mind filled, Thoughts flying far away, Like a released arrow, None can peek, Yet everyone sees,
The raised eyebrows draw concern, Of his livelihood, And the well-being of his staff, Before the legacy he built, Crumble, unlike the still building, In front of him.
There is nothing good will ever come out of my mouth, Only deep numbing frustration like compacted powder of emotion, There is no patience and solace except the happy finger anxiety, And the words to let out are like knives and blades coated with poison,
What is kindness when they are the ones being punished? What is patience when the world is filled with ignorants? What is fairness when they are the ones being abused? What is a family when they are bringing the home down?
Yet, I can never understand the main question, Why am I still fighting to move forward?
