Ordinary Day For Everyone (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

How an ordinary day it could be,
beyond that tree,
tumbling hills rolled freely.

A little creek whispered in hymns,
critters quenched their thirst on a whim,
a breeze rhythmically strolled through the realm.

Without rain or thunder to scare away the residents,
a boring day continued on without a special attendant,
here lay a cave where a sleeping dragon has been a resident.

A warrior in heavy armor, shield, and a sharpest blade,
creeping slowly within the shades,
onward to a cave as he readied for a fate.

Nearing the cave, breathless warrior’s thoughts ran high.
Am I doing this for everyone’s hide?
Am I doing this for my own pride?

Thousands of years a dragon was asleep,
one brave fool warrior just woke a dragon up from his sleep,
in a flash, fire raged out toward the cave’s opening and onto the creep.

Arming to the teeth, the warrior withstood the fire’s rage,
but he could not muster up his own rage to meet his destined fate,
yelling from his lung, he screamed “I’m doing this for everyone’s fate.”

Dashing toward the dragon with the sharpest blade and shield,
his emotion went numb, he was readied to kill,
suddenly he heard the dragon said, “hold back your heels.”

Dragon’s sudden talkative tactic unnerved the warrior,
nonetheless, he charged on for a pride of a warrior,
“I’m doing this for everyone,” he roared as a warrior.

The dragon bled out a river of blood,
but the warrior got drowned in the blood flood,
a bloody mess it was, but the dragon still stood.

Another slow breeze rhythmically strolled through the realm,
a little creek by the cave whispered a hymn,
critters quenched their thirst on a whim.

Perhaps, on another ordinary day,
another fool would try to prey,
a sleeping dragon that would sleep away.

Fairy Tale (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

Time would not wait on anyone,
no party would last forever,
it’s an illusion to be someone,
giving time, you’d be erased forever.

Knowing things are so impermanent,
and it’s hard to say goodbye,
thus, good time is impermanent,
because this too is going to fly by.

Good time is hard to come by,
once nearby, good time is one heck of a memory,
a good time would fly by,
leaving behind a ghostly trace in memory.

Memory too is to be forgotten,
if not… it would be wiped out in time,
for time is the graveyard of the humans,
and the humans are vessels of memory in time.

In time, too, time would be forgotten,
once upon a time, in a fairy tale…
by a bard camp, happy time was not forgotten,
but now it’s only a fairly tale.

Perhaps, the fairies of the future,
would look back and not see time,
for they are of the future,
thus, time would not be their rhymes.

Take Me There To A Fairy Tale Land

I just quickly wrote this simple poetry/song today.  It’s not that big of a deal, but I think it is nice.  Enjoy!!!

  • Take me there to a fairy tale land,
  • where you are the queen of my heart.
  • Take me there to a fairy tale land,
  • where you and I can be heaven and earth.
  • Here I am dreaming about you,
  • and wondering can our fairy tale be true?
  • Here I am singing about you,
  • and wondering can our fairy tale be true?
  • Take me there to a fairy tale land,
  • where you are the one who rescues me.
  • Take me there to a fairy tale land,
  • where heaven meets earth and I meet you.
  • Here I am dreaming about you,
  • and wondering can our fairy tale be true?
  • Here I am singing about you,
  • and wondering can our fairy tale be true?
