Half Empty-Half Full

The glass is half-empty, half-full
The man who drank is a fool
Believing that the liquor is water
All that’s left is a hangover

The journal is half-empty, half-full
Like a mere requirement in school
Entries are just make-believes
A wishful thinking from under the sleeves

And so the love they kept and grown have
had an offspring
At the age of 16, they have to raise another being
In just a blink of an eye, the word was all over
A child out of wedlock is soon to come over

The room is half-empty, half-full
Not so warm and not so cool
Sitting alone in one corner
Truth is soon to uncover

It happened a year, and a year ago
When everything seems aglow
Love came by unexpectedly
Followed by meetings repeatedly

The relationship grew as time went by
Feelings for each other were no way to hide
But then the bond was suddenly discovered
Two families had since been angered

This triggered a more chaotic situation
Leaving them caught between love and
family consideration
Where to go? What to do? When will all the pain subdue?
Another life is hanging, the image was all
so blue

Suddenly, fate had a very dreadful twist
One day, the woman felt something she can’t resist
The fluid of life accidentally slipped away
Then what came next are pictures of black and gray

Two lives departed, another is bewildered
The events had brought about nothing but hatred
Seems like a lifetime has easily passed by
And all he can do is nothing but to cry

They say the more the heart is hindered, the
more it falls deeply in love
Because for a couple so young in age, love is all they have
Nothing really beats our every first time
Even when they’re together no more or their music’s ran out of rhyme

The glass is half-empty, half-full
The journal is half-empty, half-full
The room is half-empty, half-full
The man is half-empty, half-full

A fool at school who lost his cool
Sitting alone in the four-cornered room
Waiting to hang himself in gloom.
