Jillian's fusion of words for poetry evolved during her college years as a BS Biology student at the University of the Philippines Diliman.
The balanced blend
People are not divided into good and bad, hero and villain. Our world is simply a balance of different human choices and decisions. And what we must understand is that the ones we make will always affect that balance.
Black or White?
Sirius Black once said in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix:
"We've got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are."
Theses have scope and limitations
Books have facts and notes of fiction
Caves have gems and coals
Galaxies have stars and black holes.
Flowers can be perfect or imperfect
Medicine offers cure but sometimes with side effects
The moon turns dark and bright
Colors range from black to white.
One day I care
The next moment I break
I try to share
Sometimes all I do is take.
Fear kicks in; who am I really?
Perhaps I’m like theses
Books, caves and galaxies
Flowers, moon and medicine.
Neither black nor white
But a combination of both sides.
Who are you really?
Question your goals. Never question your WORTH.
