Pieces of Me


Why do we need to fight for it if it is freely given to us?

Why do we need to struggle if feelings are mutual?

Why do we need to shed tears if it promised us happiness?

Why do we keep on missing something we cannot keep?

They said it can protect us from pain but what is this pain I’m having now?

I’ve been in a tug – of – war of choosing what is right and wrong.

It has always been my cross to bear.

I don’t know any other way out, but to keep it in my heart until the old flame die down.

I cried under a blanket a million times. And once again, I need to draw a line in the sand because it’s the best thing to do.

LOVE… I hope to find you in my arms soon.

I hope to meet you in a garden of common ground.

To go a distance with you where I hold no spite, no miles apart.

Meet me there….

His Heart Melts

My heart trembles at the mention of your name
No matter how I pretend, feelings remain the same
To be with you is my heart’s aim
In my heart that’s where I keep the flame
But things are not too easy for me
You are like a star too far to reach
Like a thick cloud too hard to see
Don’t know where these feelings will lead me
You are the only one captured my heart
The one I love right from the start
Moments we shared nothing can take apart
You and only you always in my life.

In His Hands

downloadInventors have the proper knowledge of their creations. They know exactly the real purpose of their masterpiece. They are familiar of it’s proper usage, aware of its precautions and the right way of handling it. They find delight in the work of their hands. They take pleasure on it.

God on the same manner feels the same way. He created us and He’s the only one who can define us. He knows our purpose of living and He knows exactly what are we capable of doing. We are His masterpiece.

Sometimes trusting everything in our own hands can be uncomfortable and can even hurt us. We often forget to trust the One who knows all things. Our lives are not our own. It should be submitted to its creator. Our own hands are not capable of perfecting it. It is meant to be surrendered to it’s master.

A golf stick is worthless in my hands, but with Tiger Woods its worth a million.

The boxing glove of Manny Pacquiao  is nothing but a toy to me, but for him it is his pride.

A football is just a sport for me but for Nessi, its a lifetime achievement.

My life in my own hands.. MISERY

What is in your hand that you consider important?

Simplicity of Life – Random Thoughts on Typhoon Glenda

Typhoon Glenda just passed by Metro Manila. It’s still dark, no internet, no electricity. Phone signal seems to be elusive at this time. Technical glitch is so much present.

This boredom could kill me. Sipping my cacao hot chocolate is the ONLY thing that I can do. The ground floor of the building of where I am staying is covered with noise. The noise of children playing habulan and taguan. I can smell champorado somewhere. Parents are at home enjoying their kids.These scenario reminds me of my childhood days. Life was simple back then. Most kids will proceed outside in the afternoon to play different kinds of Pinoy games. After our playing time, Papa will call us at 6 pm to have our dinner. At home we continue playing this time with mama and papa. We just love doing things all together. No gadgets, no internet and computer games to intervene. Purely relational.

I SO miss that kind of life. I wish life could be that simple.

Two sides of the coin

In all circumstances, there is good and bad, happy and sad, black and white, fact and fiction,true and false. Often we do not recognize that the other side exist. Truth is in every given situation there is more than just one side. A wise person don’t trust unverified information but instead they seek evidence or testimony to every fact. They don’t keep chipping on the same spot always. A wise person is  a lover of truth.
