Transitions-Departure (poem)

Departure Jigae

I'm leaving it all behind

Shiny ties
Averted eyes
Customary lies
Macho guys

Lurching bus
Market fuss

Taxi racing
Progress outpacing
Production replacing
Economy unlacing

Plenty of spice
Too much white rice
Haggle for a price
Life can be a slice
Yet abundance not suffice

Traffic comes and goes
Promise forgets then knows
Beautiful rose
Edited nose
Absurdly painted toes

Manic exuberance
Drunken fool dance
Label pants
Furtive glance
Cornucopia of chance
Classroom adherance
English class trance

Fem style exaggerated
Nation's story underrated
Political will understated
Some foods and places overrated
Performance ever evaluated
Appearances often inflated
Confidence at times deflated
Self sometimes incinerated

Leaps of history
So much mystery

Too much pride
Tradition in backslide
Treks along mountainside
Philosophies collide
Fears rise and subside
Lovers on the side
Cars and trains they ride
Pleasures by the seaside



Rising sun
So much fun
So much done
So many a gun
War unwon

Constant confusion
Wonderful delusion
Sorrowful disillusion
Americanish diffusion
Yin-yang fusion

From ecstasy
To complacency
To heresy
To plasticity

Long, long hair
Funny underwear
Peddlers that blare
Strangers that care
Crazies that dare
Yellers who swear

What is that place?
It's hard to say,
Though I lived it every day
For years--
Whatever it was,
I'll miss the buzz
I was there and lived it;
It became dear
So I'm shedding a tear
As I leave it all behind.

Transitions departure and making the progress outpacing and production replacing abundance not suffice as well. The traffic comes and goes the better and foods and places overrated for great confidence inflated.

There is nothing more painful than leaving something you love. We always feel the pain every time we have to leave a place and most especially if we have to leave a person. I always remember the moment when someone is leaving me, I cannot forget it. If there are people who love leaving, they are definitely numb. If you cannot feel the pain in it, you are not loved. Let us not spread hate, let us continue to stay for the person we love.

Your poem is so meaningful and the way you created it is so good. I can see how passionate you are in creating poems. I felt the sadness on it as if I am also leaving my place. The poem makes me love more my country, the culture, lifestyle and people. I hope you can find your happiness and peace in your new place. I will read your future blogs so I can see how your life is going on.
