There is a saying in Tibetan, ‘Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.’ No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that’s our real disaster.

Breaking the ulu in half. If you look closer you can see the specks of flesh flying off. Should have increased my shutter speed a little more. Oh well.

..scenes from a koka’anga I visited in Niutoua, a village at the far northeast end of Tongatapu. I love that even the old piece of tapa that was used as a drop-cloth under the papakoka’anga looks like an artwork in and of itself. Malie kau fefine!

Just Fine

                                                            Just Fine

I love the way I lie to myself

That I tell myself that everything is just fine. What a funny phrase

"Just Fine"

I guess I can consider” Just” to be just another adjective and “fine” the recipient

So as to answer  myself as well as others

" How are you doing?" they’d ask me

"Just Fine" I ‘d say

God, what am I doing.

What

Am

I

Doing?

I am far from fine actually.

I want someone to hold me, I want someone to caress me and make me feel

I dunno,

Special?

Is special the right word even?

I mean c’mon how much longer can I go like this

But I really do love the way I lie to myself

I like how much I avoid those thoughts

Those sluggish insecure, and often selfish thoughts of sadness, but I know that everyone has.

I wanna be hard I mean not like hard, but like ya know, rough around the edges. I wanna be

Special

I wanna feel special

I want I guess, I mean,

I want, uh, well

I want

 

 

 

 

You.

To notice me

To smile,

I wanna see your laugh

I wanna see your eyes light up

I wanna see you happy

I wanna see you

And me

And well….. awww whatever what the hell am I saying.

I dont really know what I want, I guess i want to be

"Just Fine".

Just another love poem

Just another love poem

Its late at night and I’m having one of those endeavors

Deep into my soul I fall head first

Then I find you

Yes you.

You, the perfect one, your laying next to me on my bed right now

Your scruffy brown eyes and hair

Your perfect smile and laugh

The way you cuddle under the covers,

Your ragged shoes you wear everyday

Your semi baggy pants that you cant get rid of

Your backpack filled with your dreams and hopes

I caress the bags under your eyes, from the

Countless nights you stayed up for me just to talk

 Yea I liked it when you called me hot and dirty things

I liked all those pictures to, just to let you know

But I also liked those moments where

We laughed then stopped abruptly and smiled at each other

I like the cafuné you constantly do to me when were alone.

You know when you passionately run your hand through my hair,

I like how desperately nervous and insecure we both get when one  of us decides to hold hands.

I love looking at you when you’re not looking

I love those picturesque moments when you stand and walk without any reason

I love the feel of your fingertips that I stroke when

We’re in the elevator.

I love those moments we shared when we

Kissed

And  I love those moments

That don’t exist

Because well

You don’t

Its late at night and I’m having one of those endeavors

Deep into my soul I fall head first

Then I find you

Yeah. … you
