“TRUE FRIENDSHIP”


Colors may fade,

the sun may not shine,

the moon may not be bright,

heartbeats may stop,

lives may pass but our friendship,

I'll treasure 'till the day my heart stops.

Sa aking pagtanda, unawain mo sana ako at pagpasensiyahan.

Kapag dala ng kalabuan ng mata ay nakabasag ako ng pinggano nakatapon ng sabaw sa hapag kainan, huwag mo sana akong kagagalitan.Maramdamin ang isang matanda. Nagse-self-pity ako sa tuwing sinisigawan mo ako.

Kapag mahina na ang tenga ko at hindi ko maintindihanang sinasabi mo, huwag mo naman sana akong sabihanng "binge!" paki-ulit nalang ang sinabi mo o pakisulat nalang.Pasensya ka na, anak. Matanda na talaga ako.

Kapag mahina na ang tuhod ko, pagtiyagaan mo sana akongtulungang tumayo, katulad ng pag-aalalay ko sa iyo noong nag-aaral ka pa lamang lumakad.

Pagpasensyahan mo sana ako kung ako man aynagiging makulit at paulit-ulit na parang sirang plaka.Basta pakinggan mo nalang ako. Huwag mo sana akong Pagtatawanan o pagsasawaang pakinggan.

Natatandaan mo anak noong bata ka pa?kapag gusto mo ng lobo, paulit-ulit mo 'yong sasabihin, maghapon kang mangungulit hangga't hindi mo nakukuha ang gusto mo.Pinagtyagaan ko ang kakulitan mo.

Pagpasensyahan mo na rin sana ang aking amoy. Amoy matanda, amoy lupa.Huwag mo sana akong piliting maligo. Mahina na ang katawan ko.Madaling magkasakit kapag nalamigan, huwag mo sana akong pandirihan.

Natatandaan mo noong bata ka pa? Pinagtyagaan kitang habulin As ilalim ng kama kapag ayaw mong maligo.

Pagpasensyahan mo sana kung madalas, ako'y masungit, Dala na marahil ito ng katandaan. Pagtanda mo, maiintindihan mo rin.

Kapag may konti kang panahon, magkwentuhan naman tayo, kahit sandali lang.Inip na ako sa bahay, maghapong nag-iisa. Walang kausap.

Alam kong busy ka sa trabaho, subalit nais kong malaman mo na sabik na sabik Na akong makakwentuhan ka, kahit alam kong hindi ka interesado sa mga kwento ko.

Natatandaan mo anak, noong bata ka pa?Pinagtyagaan kong pakinggan at intindihinang pautal-utal mong kwento tungkol sa iyong teddy bear.

At kapag dumating ang sandali na ako'y magkakasakit at maratay sa banig ng karamdaman,huwag mo sana akong pagsawaang alagaan.

Pagpasensyahan mo na sana kung ako man ay maihi o madumi sa higaan,Pagtyagaan mo sana akong alagaan sa mga huling sandali ng aking buhay.Tutal hindi na naman ako magtatagal.
Kapag dumating ang sandali ng aking pagpanaw, hawakan mo sana ang aking kamayAt bigyan mo ako ng lakas ng loob na harapin ang kamatayan.

At huwag kang mag-alala, kapag kaharap ko na ang Diyos na lumikha,ibubulong ko sa kanya na pagpalain ka sana …. Dahil naging mapagmahal ka sa iyong ama't ina…

Setting Her Free


Setting her free
By: Ayes, Mark

Once I fell for someone…
Someone I thought I could keep
But once I kept her in my hands
She cried in pain and flee.
I wish I can keep her smile
The way she used to smile at him
But then suddenly I realized,
She can never be mine forever.
So I decided to set her free…
Even I felt, something was broken inside of me
Hoping that someday,
Someone will mend it again for me.
And now she flies away,
Away in my heart that still bleeds
Seeking for her pair,
To be happy as she wants to be.
And I left behind looking at her from a distance
Smiling’ and somewhat wishing’
Searching the path of love
For once I ought to believe…
I’d Rather
I’d rather be in love
Than do nothing
For ifI didn’t know what I mean
For so long in my heartIt is within
Hard it is to hide it
But to love you
Seems to be the best

Special World

Special World
By Edu Galang

A special world for you and me
A special bond one cannot see
It wraps us up in its cocoon
And holds us fiercely in its womb.

Its fingers spread like fine spun gold
Gently nestling us to the fold
Like silken thread it holds us fast
Bonds like this are meant to last.

And though at times a thread may break
A new one forms in its wake
To bind us closer and keep us strong
In a special world, where we belong.


Look To This Day

Look To This Day*

Look to this day,
For it is the very life of life.
In its brief course, lie all the verities
and realities of your existence:
The glory of action,
The bliss of growth,
The splendor of beauty,
For yesterday is but a dream and
Tomorrow is only a vision;
But today well lived makes every
Yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.

Pain in My Heart

Pain in my heart*

When we met on a place through a practice,
I had no idea that you'll become part of me.
You talked to me and you asked,
How the day was?

Every time we see each other.

It makes me feel better,
You always smile and say Hi!
And I really intend to smile.

There was a time I felt something,

And it keeps me bothering.
I think it is strange but true,
Do I start liking you?

I keep on avoiding.

Because of this strange feeling,
I started not to talk to you.
To forget this feelings for you.

There is one reason,

Thats why i do this things to you.
Because my friend like you,
So i kept this feeling for you.

The Weirdness of Love

The Weirdness of Love
(The title is just my invention. There's no title and author indicated in the paper.)
We're all little weird
And life's a little weird
And when we find someone
Whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
We join up with them
And fall in mutual weirdness
And call it LOVE.

The Triumph of Life

The Triumph of Life
By Gristelle Marzan

Everything in this world has a purpose. We are born alive to experience the abundance and prosperity that has given to us by a unique paradise we live in. It is up to us how to manage and how to make it even more prosperous. As we live we are educated and after we learn we’re the ones to educate. Working hard to help other people is part of our existence and being human. We live not only for ourselves but also for others especially to those unfortunate beings that didn’t make it to his wellness of life. There’s nothing free in this world. Competitions of staying alive and rich are everywhere and if you lose you will be poor if you don’t have the courage to get up and fight back so sooner then you will become the poorest of the poorest rat on earth.

We made mistakes at some point of our lives. It’s either reasonable or unreasonable. Moreover, we learn from our mistakes and from that we became a better person. To be a better person, it isn’t enough to prove ourselves to everybody. We have to feel ourselves and know our egos because we are humans. We are possessed by our feelings, emotions, and even our weaknesses that really affects on how we become and who we become in this game of life. Yes, weaknesses. It’s the hardest part of becoming a better person because we are going to face our egos so that we can take away negative energies that made us weak. it‘s the only way to prevent ourselves to possess selfish acts that might be a hindrance in achieving happiness beyond compare. It is so wonderful to say that money can’t buy happiness but not to those ruthless men in the society. Money makes them happy, money makes the mayor go. Happiness is contentment but if we keep on pushing beyond limitation to find more success and fortune when there is enough then we can never be happy. Selfishness will bring us to the end of our being because we became inhuman and one day we will find ourselves lost, so lost that nobody would care to find us. How sad isn’t it? We are getting older everyday but some folks never learn there valuable lesson of living life to the fullest until they are sixty. Too late when they could have done it before but it doesn’t matter how long it takes for them to realize the time they have wasted as long as they are making wrong things right before due time. Life is so unfair! We say that when we are hurt, when everything turns upside down, when we didn’t make to the top with our goals and dreams it’s because life has its own destiny. We think we know everything but we only knew half of it. We may never notice it but life is taking away some things we used to want and we used to believe right in order to give us something we really deserve.

The triumph of life is based upon our experiences. Experience increases our wisdom but doesn’t reduce our follies. It even teaches us much, but learns little. That’s life. Life is what we make it and the proof that experience teaches us nothing is that the end of one love does not prevent us from beginning another. We run from our problems and responsibilities because we let our temerity and cowardice dwell in our hearts without having a little bravery inside and the more we escape from something we usually find something else. That’s life. Others spend their whole time hunting after righteousness and can’t find any time to practice it. That’s life. Sometimes we found ourselves in trouble by saying “yes” too quick and not saying “no” soon enough. That’s life. We intend to do crazy things do bad things but the important is we live simple and happy and if we think about it over and over again we might go insane. Otherwise, don’t take it too seriously, we’ll die anyway.

To My Dearest Friend by Nikko Borac

To My Dearest Friend
By Nikko Borac

A word sacrifice,
Is the true meaning of love
A love that will never dies
And a love, that’s free as a dove

I’ll be your angel who will protect
Or a friend when you needed
In my eyes, you look so invincible and yet so perfect,
But in your eyes, I’m invisible and slowly faded

Although I have nothing like a pauper,
And you’re like a beautiful Princess
I’m always here to give to you my shoulder
For you to rest and to relieve your sadness

For your own happiness, my dearest friend…
Either love I can sacrifice, and to be just your angel ‘till the end

Valentine's Special

Valentine’s Special
By Arvin Cubid

I sought to seek shelter
Near a friend I already new
But the only thing I remember
Was being beside with you

I was afraid to talk
Because you were a stranger to me
It was like there was a wall
That which none can see

But I was surprised on what happened
You were the first one to say hi
Though I try to pretend there’s nothing
I cannot stop my eyes

And as I look at you
Strange as it may seem
It’s like your nothing you
And this is a familiar scene

I was skeptical at first
Why are you so nice to me
Though I assumed the worst
It was far from reality

So I also said hi
And that’s were it all began
I knew if I didn’t try
There will be nothing in the end

From then on we were friends
And that was okay to me
No matter where we went
I only want you to be happy

You were very sweet to me
And show it with full heartiness
But the absolute reality
Is we’re nothing more than friends

I tried to pretend
And I sometimes lie to myself
I don’t want to fall in love again
And I don’t need anyone’s help

Everybody always sees us
Like there’s a deeper relationship
That only brought upon rust
On our steady friendship

As the rain slowly stops
And it finally comes to a halt
I leave you and the shelter
Without a single word

I know I will regret this
Pretending I don’t know
That I wish that something between us
Could’ve been so much more

I’m sorry, if my heart is blind
I’m sorry, if I won’t unwind
I’m sorry, if I just pretend
I’m sorry, I won’t love again

I’m sorry, if I couldn’t see
The beauty right in front of me
The angel who gave up her wings
So that she could be with me

Falling Rain

Falling Rain
By Dale Pascual


“Raindrops are the bravest thing God has created in this world.”
“Why?”
“Because, they are not afraid of falling.”

It’s true. Every time we want to do something, we decide. When we decide, our thought split. When they split, we get confused. And when we are confused, we are afraid. Afraid of accepting what effect/s may cause our decisions. Causing turns in our lives on a split thought. Then we try to redo, but all we can do is move on, and stand on what our decision’s outcome. Either the outcome is good or bad, life doesn’t end on that decision. Deciding is hard, so is standing on that decision. When the outcome is good, we rejoice. It boosts our confidence and self esteem. And we try to decide on something else. But if our decision fails or turn bad, we never want to decide again. Even for ourselves, we ask other opinions and still we are confused, but the last decision is on ourselves. We must accept what we decide even if it is good or bad, we must learn from its outcome.

But this quote is made for love, deciding on love is one of the hardest event one can pass through. Especially at the very first stage, deciding on whom to love. Then, things will depend on how your first approach will affect the other’s decision. And still, what might the other’s decision may be, we must accept, and then go on with what that decision become.

To Love and Be Loved


TO LOVE AND BE LOVED
By Marlon B. Raquel




I have so much to say
But I don’t know how and when to start.
Your presence makes me numb
And leads the air to scatter around.

One day my arms will possess you
And incarcerate your inner being into my soul.
One day the ring will shine under the sun’s rays
The moment when the two souls will be united as one.

You are a shining star to me
That gives a sweet caress and enormous feeling to my senses.
I am the moon that makes you bloom
Every night as I smile at you with joy.

How sweet it is to love! How sweeter it is to be loved!
Would these things come into reality?
Or would just be part of my unconsciousness?
That I do not know.

Hypothetical


HYPOTHETICAL

By Marlon B. Raquel



Life is miserable without people around us who will understand the very inner of our beings. Our families serve as our nest the moment we were born in this world. We have friends who are ready to accept us and make us feel that we are important individuals. Through our families and friends, we are able to understand ourselves better. To fathom our identities is just like looking for a needle in grasses. We need to understand the meaning of our existence lest we will be groping in the dark. We need to relate ourselves with the totality of things.

The above scenario helped me to figure out the real me—how I understand myself in relation to other people. Recently, I encountered a person who easily penetrated my heart. Though we haven’t met yet face to face, it seems that we’re friends for a long time already (at least the way I feel it). This person made my heart to beat fast like a drum. I am just like a thirsty deer looking for an oasis in a desert. My once solitary soul has been filled with hope and anticipation that I would find the One I am searching for.

I do not know exactly what the future would bring for me. I was burn out with relationships with my friends in the past and I am afraid that this new relationship might die unnoticed and would just fade away like a mist in the morning. For one thing, I don’t know if I am just one of ordinary friends.

How can I explain to you exactly the way I feel every time I think of you? Whenever I want you to be here with me, I just close my eyes and pretend that you are near, sitting beside me holding my hands so tight. The day I know you, I said to myself: “I will never be lonely again for you are there.” The stars brightly shone, and the moon smiled at me.

I asked myself if you know that I have put my trust and confidence on you or have I just pushed myself to be loved and feel the security I’m longing for from you. This is crucial I know. All of us want to feel that we are important to people. There’s no doubt that you are important to me. The question now is: Am I important to you? If not, I have to check myself and the situation. I have to reconsider everything for I will only be hurt eventually. There’s nothing to expect I guess.

The Dream

The Dream


In the dream, I knew the room was where I lived,and it was rented, maybe in a hotel.But with furniture all stacked and shoved off to one side, it looked more empty than full.I had to arrange what was there, which wasn't enough.I had to invent. Something from nothing. Stuff to fill that space and make it habitable.Of course, since it was hardly a place to call my permanent home, and since I was surrounded by strangers, some in rooms next door to mine,who said things I could hear but not understand,others partying up and down the hall,their good time close to getting out of hand,I was careful never to let anyone in.

Love Is ...
Love is the greatest feeling,
Love is like a play,
Love is what I feel for you,
Each and every day,
Love is like a smile,
Love is like a song,
Love is a great emotion,
That keeps us going strong,
I love you with my heart,
My body and my soul,
I love the way I keep loving,
Like a love I can't control,
So remember when your eyes meet mine,
I love you with all my heart,
And I have poured my entire soul into you,
Right from the very start.

No salary,
No compensation.
More than a month
Of frustation.


O Mother Fak-Yul-Tee,
Bear with our hardships.
O agony! O agony!
Help us pray


The system
Is full of mystery.
Her people
Are living in misery.


Hear the cry
Of your constituents!
If not, if not O Mother Fak-Yul-Tee,
Just kick our asses and set us free!

Is God Blind?



Premise 1: GOD IS LOVE.

Premise 2: LOVE IS BLIND.

Conclusion: THEREFORE, GOD IS BLIND.



Is this correct? Logically speaking, the above statements follow the logical pattern of syllogism. But there are things in this world that cannot be explained by philosophy nor the physical sciences. God is beyond the physical nature of man. He is incomprehensible even to the most intelligent human specie in the world today. God, in His infinite wisdom and love, became human to save the world from eternal damnation. Jesus Christ died on the Cross of Calvary for our sins. Premise 1 is absolutely correct. Premise 2 is a manifestation of man's limited comprehension of the things around him. The conclusion shows how foolish the philosophy of man is that could bring to him. GOD IS LOVE, nothing more, nothing less!

You

“YOU”

When I was A little kid,
Who knows no thing about life and love.
A kid who only knows how to play around,
And that love was just a game.

One day I fall in love,
But I got played and fooled
That’s why I don’t want to fall in love anymore
And I fear that I might get hurt again.

Suddenly you came
You change everything in my life
What I know about love
And what I don’t know about life.

I will fall in love again
And its you, who teach me,
But please be careful with my heart
Because this heart only be yours till the end.

"One"

"When, I saw you for the first time
I knew you were the one.
You didn't say a word to me.
But love, was in the air."

"Then you held my hand
Pulled me into your world
From then on my life
Has changed for me"

"Now I'll never feel lonely again
Coz you are in my life... "
"Love...How can I explain to you
The way I feel inside when I think of you..

I thank you for everything that you showed me.
Don't you ever forget that I love you."
maybe...this is our fate..."
Love, I know that someday real soon

You'll be right next to me.
Holding me so tight.
So I will always be yours.
Although we can't be together now.

Remember I am here for you."
"And I know you're there for me.
Whenever I want to be with you
I just close my eyes and pretend you're near

I see you, I touch you, I feel you, like real"
"Nothing can ever change what I feel inside."
"How long must I be far away from you?
I don't know dear, but I know we are One...

Friendship

Friendship
By Argie May Aprueldo

“The essence of friendship is entireness,
a total magnanimity and trust.”

One of the most beautiful human attachments is friendship, friendship between a man and another man, between a woman and another woman, and between a man and a woman. Its springs from one’s need to share his activities, his thoughts, and his feelings with another whose interests and sympathies are akin to his. Friends are really birds of the same feather, which can fly together towards the same beloved heights of thoughts, imagination and fancy. Over cups of coffee such flight may be made. Others more physically inclined would swim together and even fight together. If friendship was born in childhood, its bonds with common interests in the men is gorged deeper or stronger with the poignancy of common memories built thru the years and summoned by such magic words as, “Do you remember…?” there is nothing would not do for or give to a friend. Nothing in the last piece of bread to his own life would a true friend not offer to his friend.

True friendship should not be mistaken for what it is not. It is not true friendship that one sees in flattery and cajolery whose ulterior aim is gain or favor. It is not true friendship that the mouth of professes but the deeds belie. It is not often not true friendship that is avowed with great profusion of words and gestures, for sincere affection is deep and silent, not even needing words to convey itself.

Like all other human attachments, friendship is often sinned against. The first of such abuses is the imposition by one party on the other of demands that, on account of friendship, may not be refused. It is a virtue for a person to give whatever he has to his friend, but it is not a similar virtue for one to make on his friends’ excessive demands especially if such demands would entail pain and sacrifices from the giver. It is no great love that cares not to hurt knowingly; no great love that would receive rather than give.

The gravest sin one may commit against a friend is betrayal, the betrayal of sacred confidences. A person is disposed to tell all his secrets to his friend, to open all his heart and soul to him as he would to no other, even his wife, perhaps. Should the friend who has been allowed to enter such secret chambers come out of them and tell the whole world what he has beheld therein? Of course not, and yet many have acted otherwise and violated such sacred trust.

Naisip Ko Lang

“Na isip ko lng”
By April Jeff Cardenas



Sa kalagitnaan ng Tag init ng Taong 1985 at bago pumasok ang buwan ng mga bulaklak, Isang maliit na pag asa ang nabuhay sa pamilya ng mga Cardenas, Isang pag asa na magbabago sa buhay ng maraming tao, Ang pangalan niya ay April Jeff, dahil sa hindi mapigilan na sitwasyon ang pag asang eto ay magiging sang ganap na tao dahil sa mga taong naka paligid sa kanya, pero bago ang lahat magbibigay muna nako ng mga ka unting detalye tungkol sa taong eto .

Ang aking kwento ay iisa at pareho din tulad ng iba, ako ay isang tao simple kumakain ng tatlong beses sa isang araw at natutulog pag gabi, ang kaibahan lang bago ko matulog ako ay laging tumutingin sa Langit pag gabi o madaling araw maraming tao nga ang nagtataka kung bakit ko eto gina gawa pero simula palang noong ako ay bata pa naka sanayan ko ng gawin eto, ang sabi skin nang lolo ko kapag tumutingin ka daw sa langit bago ka matulog makikita mo ang kina bukasan. Hangang ngayon hindi ko pa rin ma unawaan kung ano eto, pero me napansin ko dito kapag tumitingin ako sa langit dahil sa kathang isip ng tao, nararamdaman ko na naririnig ko ang mga bituin at nag sasalita sa aking isip hindi man sila talaga nag sasalita nararamdaman ko ang gusto nilang sabihin at dahil dito madalas kong ma unawaan ang mga nang yayari araw araw, maaring ako ay isang hibang pero hindi pa rin ako tumitigil maniwala sa aking lolo eto ang nagiging inspiration ko sa araw araw.


O paano wala man saysay ang mga bagay na sinulat ko dito masasbi ko parin na maraming bagay parin sa mundo na dapat nating ma unawaan kaya ang pag asa ang binigay kong pag hahambing sa aking sarili kasi ang Pag asa ang nagbibigay sa tao na magawa nya ang Gusto niyang magawa o makamit at ang pag asa ang gumagabay satin habang Buhay…

Is Man Truly Human?


Is man truly human? This is a question that remains a puzzle for many people throughout generations. If your answer is yes, then prove your argument. What then is the composition of man that makes him human? If your answer is no, defend your position. Isn't man synonymous with being human? Dare to philosophize. This is a noble act of questioning.

Skepticism

Skepticism
By Ivan Alexies Ancheta


In practice, the goal of skepticism is not the discovery of truth, but the exposure of other people’s errors. It plays a useful role in science, religion, scholarship, and common sense. But we need to remember that it is a weapon serving belief or self-interest; we need to be skeptical of skeptics. The more militant the skeptic, the stronger the belief.

For You Are The One

For You Are The One

For you I would climb
The highest mountain peak
Swim the deepest ocean
Your love I do seek.
For you I would cross
The rivers most wide
Walk the hottest desert sand
To have you by my side.
For you are the one
Who makes me whole
You've captured my heart
And touched my soul.
For you are the one
That stepped out of my dreams
Gave me new hope
Showed me what love means.
For you alone
Are my reason to live
For the compassion you show
And the care that you give.
You came into my life
And made me time I see you
My heart skips a beat.
For you define beauty
In both body and mind
Your soft, gentle face
More beauty I'll ne'er find.
For you are the one
God sent from above
The angel I needed
For whom I do love.

Our Simple and Little Ways


Our Simple and Little Ways
By Peejay Herrera

Last sembreak, I was in Dumaguete with my brother, cousins and other relatives. We went to the beach until night comes. My brother, for lack of doing something, he decided to start a fire near our cottage.

There was one log left over and he tried all he could to set it ablaze. He used crumpled newspaper and burned it under the log. He added more newspapers to feed the fire. Still, the log didn’t burn. So he added more, and more, and more. Until he used up all the newspapers we have that night. Not wanting to accept defeat, he took a bottle of alcohol and cover the log with alcohol. The alcohol burned out but the log remained fire-resistant. After an hour, he finally got a blaze going.

What did I learn from this experience? First, that my brother won’t have a successful career as an arsonist or those criminals who burn houses or buildings. And second, it is not that easy to burn down a house.

It’s the same thing with the Earth. When God created it, it was build to last. So it is not easy to destroy it. In a magazine, I found 10 ways you could destroy Earth completely. None of them are possible unless you have the power of the justice league and the brains of Einstein and Newton combined. But 6.7 billion human being who lived without caring for their environment could be dangerous. I also read from that magazine that in the past two years, humans have damaged the environment in a massive way in the last 50 years than at any other time in human history.

Me, destroy Mother Earth? How do I do that? When we burn our trash in the backyard, we release toxins that will harm our environment and our health as well. When we litter, some of our garbage ends up floating in our seas which destroys corals that took hundreds and thousands of years to make. When we use up more toilet papers and other sanitary materials than we need to, these mean that more leaves and trees have to be cut down.

There are just SIMPLE AND LITTLE WAYS we can help and they might not seem a lot. But if you, I and everyone of us will take our role seriously, maybe we can help managing and protecting our Mother Earth.

The Test of Time

The Test Of Time
By Bryan Aguilar

I still see your face in my dreams
It hurts and it doesn't help at all
I still want you in my life as crazy as that seems
I want you to catch me when

I still remember the first time we met
There was something so different about you
Your friendship was something I wanted to get
That smile when you said hi to me was so new

Out of no where you called me on the phone
I wanted to sit there and talk to you forever
You were so new, so crazy and unknown
I just knew that our friendship would never sever

Two years and we are barely holding it together
What happened to the way this all used to be
I never wanted you out of my like ever
I sat there for a long time pretending not to see

We decided to go out and make it all all right
It didn't work out of course we knew it couldn't
We couldn't even really stand each others sight
It shouldn't end this way but it did and I shouldn't

I miss you and everything you were to me
Ten years from now we will look back on it all
We will be older and finally be able to see
That love will stand the test of time and never fall

Thinking of You

Thinking of You
By Gristelle D. Marzan


The night is so cold
And I’m thinking of you
I am now too old
But I still loving you

I keep on reminiscing
The moments we shared
It is you that I’m missing
And the times we spared

Life was ungrateful
We didn’t last long
But I am hopeful
That again you will come along

Like Romeo and Juliet and Casanova
I promise to you that we will dance together in Bosa nova

Philosophy of the Week

Philosophy for the Week

Don't try to cover the dirt in your face by using powder,
And be yourself as you are and don't be afraid of showing it of!

This philosophy always comes in my mind this week. I don't know why I am afraid of accepting the fact that. These things are simple but very hard to do. When we are conscious in our appearance we always say that we cannot please someone.

2nd Week Application

Prelim Examination Week. Many things happened. Stresses appear in every student that is busy in their lives. Sometimes were forgetting to call God for help. It's easy for us to say that we love God but how can we prove that it is true if in just a single matter of saying the truth we lie? After our examination, its Ash Wednesday, we decided to attend a mass. In the sermon of the priest he always telling that we should slap our face to wake up in the fact that we should know. When I heard it, I think I am one of the people he talking with that matter. I think what I always want is to praise. In fact I am happy doing it always. Now I realized that things are possible if we are sincere dong it. For God nothing impossible if we have faith in him.



A DARK DAY

A Dark Day
By Mr. Anonymous


Being here is not a lucky thing because it is dark, cold and quiet. Before I met you, my life is not complete but happy. But when I met you at first you is just an ordinary friend to me. Time goes by and I felt a little happiness when I’m at your side. At first I thought it is normal but then and then I felt that I’m falling for you. And when I collect all the guts I have, I finally say that I’m in love with you even I know that you have a boyfriend but I can’t force my heart not to love you and then it happens. I pick to stay by your side and love you even I know that you have a human boyfriend. And then months past by and many things happens, things that we can’t imagine. And then that this time has come, you left me. This time I feel lonely and I think the world left me behind by not thinking the status of one of my friend back in my high school. He is in darkest part of his life. After all my life now is not that dark. Please join me to pray for the goodness of condition of my friend Francis Edward Resoor. Thanks for the prayers…

Murmurs of the Sea by Nikko Borac

Murmurs at the Sea
By Nikko P. Borac

As the sun awakes in its horizon’s line,
And the morning falls, and then the sun goes shine
I touch its blowing wind and then feel its breeze
Makes my body and soul, feel shiver and freeze

I hear the sound of the murmurs at the sea,
Like a beast crippling in the trunks of a tree
I saw the sea creatures playing as a child,
Endangered to creatures on the land of wild

From the deep blue sea I hear a lovely voice,
A beautiful song of siren that rejoice
Above the water, I saw a chirping swan
Swaying through the currents like a turtle’s run

Finally, the night falls then the sun went west,
A tempest starts and whirlpools formed at rest
I feel the doom at the middle of darkness,
Destroying the entire sea and its mildness

Series of strong waves touches us and calls,
Like an angry mob raging to high great walls
I feel the power of the Poseidon’s wrath
Turns the sea water into a venom bath

I’m awaken from darkness of yesterday
And I see those dead creatures like a dead prey
I took my hand into the heart of the sea,
I cannot feel its beat, so the end… I see

Then I close my eyes so I can hear something
Those lovely voices from a siren who sing
Murmurs at the sea whose voices are angel,
Will never heard again, until all us fell

You



You

By Lou Ysabel Nicole L. Abuid



My life is filled with sufferings and pain

Trying my best to go through the rain

Reality shows that I won’t survive

Because I can’t help myself for me to strive

But even though at times, the world is against me

I still feel lucky because You were there for me.



LOVE TAKES TIME

“Love takes time”
By Evie Mae Bautista


I can't imagine how the two of us started to know each other. All I know is there's something in you that make me feel fine. I believe that “love takes time”, because for me it is still best to wait for the one you love rather than settle for the one who is around because life is too short to waist on the wrong one. All I can say is take time to listen to your heart sometimes. You need not to ask yourself who you really love most. But ask yourself who really makes you happy and makes you fell love too. Because Sometimes loving could be so painful and difficult. But it’s amazing to know that no matter how hard it is. Loving someone is still the simplest reason why we always find our self smiling...!!

She

SHE
By Loraine Bartolo
She's someone who lifts me up
In times that I want to give up
She's my inspiration in every step I made
Someone who hears me when I call
Always understand and give her smile
Everytime I fall shes always there
Someone who never turn her back
She's always there to wipe my tears
Who always guiding and helping me
Someone who never forgets and never leave
She's my everything,my mother,my bestfriend
my strength and my life.

MY FAULT

MY FAULT
by Dale Pascual



It wasn't my fault for not knowing you.
It wasn't my fault when you came into my life.
It wasn't my fault to know you.
It wasn't my fault to love you.
But it was my fault to feel in pain right now, when you're gone.

Yah, I did love you! But you never felt nor even knew it.
Because loving you was the only thing that can make me happy.
As you inspired my life to go on.

And now it was my fault.
My fault on why my life is happening like this.
Happening because of you.

But still I’m happy.
Happy because, for JUST only a limited time, you let me know you.
Knowing you is my greatest mistake to be happy.
But it wasn’t my fault for letting you know me.

TO AN UNKNOWN KUYA (ENGLISH VERSION)


TO AN UNKNOWN KUYA*

By Marlon B. Raquel


*This poem was originally written in Filipino. This was translated into English by Jonathan Estrada, whom I consider to be one of my friends who is close to my heart. 


In each chapter of life
Pain and hardship come your way
But if God be your guide

He will take away the hardship and turn them into victories

In each chapter of life
People come for different purposes and reasons
Others bring pain and sadness
But there are those who bring joy and will lead you to God

It is such a sweet and wonderful thought and feeling
When you have someone whom you can trust
Someone who understands your mistakes
Above all, someone who will love you without any reservations

O this friend whom I just came to know,
In the short time we were together
Through tears and laughter, he was always with me.
I earnestly pray that he not go away.

Whenever this friend of mine enters my thoughts
I cannot help but to shed a tear.
I treat him as my friend who is there to give me good advice.
Best of all, he became my true Kuya.

I call him my Kuya.
Affectionate, generous and loves to laugh,
I truly miss his hugs
That is why I shed a tear, whenever I remember him.

I would also like to thank another person
Who also became part of my life.
If not for him, I would not have been able to meet my Kuya.
It is also because of him that I learned many things in this world.

Life is indeed playfully unpredictable.
Undesirable events bring anxiety and fear.
Thanks be to Jesus, who is Pastor and Head.
Giver of joy and strength, His Holy Spirit is.

I pray to Almighty God
That He provide strength and vigor to him.
Even if my Kuya and I are apart for a long time,
I pray that nothing will hinder the desires of his heart.

My mind and my heart will never forget
The memories that my Kuya left
Though it be painful that I go away
I am ready to accept this circumstance because it is truth.

Kuya, if you go away, what will be left of me?
My childlikeness, when will it change?
Thank you so much
For coming into my life this early.

O God, our Guide on all things
I offer you our lives, us three
Your gift of love, brotherhood, and friendship
I will never forget, even in the life hereafter.
