Poem: Still Standing

Inspired by a chat with Linda Ong, from Lunarin. This one’s for you, Linda O. 🙂

Being cut

Did me a lot of good.

When you
Saw me in the hospital later

Your first words were:

I have never seen
You so calm.

And you
Were right, you know?

I was calmer
And better

The scars were almost
Faded like a lost song

What’s important is that
I am

A little thinner
But still standing.

This shall be my signature song for 2008:

The cool thing was that my young friend from Songcraft, Firdaus, did a mashup by splicing two versions of “One World” that I posted, and adding his vocals to produce this song:
