{1} The ever first poem that I’m releasing, ‘Move on’, is about getting over unrequited love. I have composed this years ago but this is still one of my favorites because I still find it so true, I still believe in what I wrote before, I mean it’s still applicable today even if it is more complex now.

As we grow up, it does not get any easier and even if we have already been through moving on from person to person, we still don’t get the hang of it. The process of moving on still requires full determination, but still, we never get used to it. Nevertheless, the concept of this first poem still for me is undeniable. I hope you’ll see my point as you go ahead and read it.

Move on


Move on, two words with six letters
Which means getting a new start and finding what’s better.
Two words, so short to remember,
Yet it takes long to forget the heart’s history that got shattered.
Not all, but some expect to find another person to heal what’s wounded,
Some play around, craving for revenge,
While others hide their misery and choose to pretend.
And there are those of us who make ourselves busy and wait for time to mend.
We may go in different ways,
Still, no matter what we do, same feeling we all have— pain,
And even we may go in different approaches,
Still, we have the same situation,
Having hard times moving on.
Who says moving on is easy anyway?
Well, maybe it is for those who play.
It is anticipated patiently,
Releasing each moment timely.
Everybody wants the feeling of love’s sweetness,
And everybody hates the feeling of love’s bitterness.
We’ve been there, so it is safe to tell
That when we start to love, for sure, we’ll both feel heaven and hell.
Moving on is more frustrating when we’re still in love.
But that’s just the best yet toughest thing we could do when we see all’s falling apart.
We can’t cling to someone who’s not ours anymore.
Whether we want it or not, we have to let go when both feelings match no longer.
We can never release our yesterdays
If we will not try to catch what we have today,
Because the present is given for us to live,
Not for going back to the days they decided to leave.


If you’re now in the state where you feel like everything is so grey and dull, especially that you have to adjust again— you got so used to the habits and routines with that certain person which makes it so hard to let go, just think, we always grow maturely bit by bit, emotionally and mentally. Somehow, someday, you will outgrow that unrequited love, believe in time. Don’t rush the process, as you wait for your heart to heal, you can double the effort of loving and appreciating yourself, it does help. It sounds cliché but it does help make days bearable to live.


A little bit of history about the poem. This was actually the first “move on” that I had and it was getting over my first love that I managed to do after two years. I was so into this person that now as I look back, I find it ridiculous but I’m glad. Glad in a way that because of him, I have tons of poem about him and now resulted into a blog.

As much as possible, I try to find the light in every darkness because that’s where I can gain strength in overcoming circumstances. I’m not just talking about moving on here anymore, I’m talking about daily struggles, in every pain there is triumph. Sooner or later, we’ll just laugh about it or be glad it’s over. Time is time, every wound heals.

“Be present in the given time, not on the days that have already passed by.” —Brae
