" YOU ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL WHEN YOU CRY."
Somebody just so randomly told me that when I was in the middle of my chaos. And I didn't know whether to take it as a compliment or comfort but from his eyes was the admiration.
There must be a PANDEMIC SITUATION for PEOPLE to REALIZE that this WORLD is SICK.
And no matter how it comes or how you find it, may it be the LOVE you deserve.
Maybe, they knew they've won parenting when they learned that they raised KIND and COMPASSIONATE HUMANS.
Just some random thoughts while alone at home,
Am not sure what it is about having children or my parents wanting to have grandchildren.
I have two brothers who are already in the right age to get married and start their family. But Mom, just how consistent she is with her motherly-graceful work keep on asking me instead of my brothers.
What it is about daughters bearing the grandchild anyway?
I've been thinking about adoption for quiet sometime now though I know it still seems so early for me to raise one. Am not also sure if they will agree.
I can't count myself miserable 'cause am not. But I don't know why I'd rather wrap myself in my blanket or read than to watch the lights from the burning papers and powders or abuse my ears from the unnecessary noise of the New Year's Eve.
I hope, I get to meet somebody who also likes the CALM, the WOLRD NEED NOT TO SEE, the FARAWAY within.
Happy New Year Lettrists! ♥️
May the coming year be filled with happiness and success we all deserve.
God bless, everyone. ♥️
To whoever might read this,
This will be the first time that I am writing here like a journal entry on my notebook. Just feel like wanting it to be natural and free.
So yeah. It's the last month of the year again. A lot happened. I get to meet new people. Some kept in touch. Some didn't even leave a notice of absence. But I get used to it often.
I've grown distant to some of my friends because I feel and think I don't know them anymore. I can't tell them that, of course. I don't like hurting people. But maybe it happens. Time show us the true colors of what we used to believe are magical and extraordinary. Chances kill the burning fire of wanting to feel the warmth.
Also, this year, I s...
S -weet when it approaches you at first,
O -verwhelming 'til it drowns you to surrender,
U-ndefeated is what it makes you feel,
L-ove is what takes your SOUL to the highest unexpected chaotic turns.
To my parents on their 27th year of marriage,
The only man I have always believed and felt to love me true since day one : Dada.
The first woman who showed me what and how it is to truly be strong, brave and independent: Mama
May you be proud of the children you've raised.
To you who is still hurting,
Let's be grateful of the PAIN we experience today. Maybe, it is just an unbearable feeling that tells us SOMETHING or SOMEBODY we DON'T DESERVE is FINALLY OUT of our LIVES.
Time pass by.
Keep going, love.
My Mom used to tell me with her eyes proud and sad,
" Smart is BEAUTIFUL and DANGEROUS. Intelligence is POWER and ISOLATION. Keep a STEADY KIND HEART. "
Almost two years now of being here. I have written my heart.
I have received appreciative and heartfelt comments.
I made friends with some good people from the other side of the world.
I have shared my work with strangers who showed me the beauty of coming across randomly.
I have never felt appreciated the way you made me feel.
I just want to say, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for creating a brilliant platform.

To the single people,
Maybe not today or this moment, but I hope, in time, YOU will have somebody who will tell you so randomly how much you made a difference in his/her life.
I hope, even when you don't ask, he/she is proud to show you off or boast about your existence in his/her life may you be around or not.
I hope, he/she makes you the best coffee or tea or whatever your comfort food is whenever you hate the world may there be a reason or not.
I hope, you get your couch potato partner who will encourage you to be fit but tolerates you on eating your favorites just because he/she loves you that much.
I hope, you meet somebody who deserves your most beautiful and accepts your ugliest....
A cry for equality.
A shout for acceptance.
A marathon of survival.
It might be a common thing for people to see nowadays in the realities and masked performances of society the colorful banners of judgment, the powerful influence of atrocity, the rise of too much apathy.
Finish the story
"The classroom was empty but she was still sitting on her chair. Everyone left but she couldn't move. She looked outside, and saw the clear sky telling her that it is now okay to retire. She didn't know whether to feel happy or sad knowing that knowledge and wisdom may not be kept by all but will make a difference for a few. She worries how these young people will take their paths, which road they will traverse without her guidance. The thought of seeing them one day in a worse situation breaks her heart. She may not know yet how to be a Mom but these kids made her one. If only she can make them all their very best..."

" And there is MORE of you to LOVE...
Discover. Nurture. Embrace.
You are your LULLABY and
WAKE UP CALL. "
I love to hear the noise of the rain,
Its loudness gives me peace,
I love to stay stuck as it pours heavily,
Its coldness gives me warmth.
And from which, I know,
I tend to love more the people and things many doesn't want around.
So tell me, are CHALLENGES disguise themselves of BEAUTY or am I just worried that I don't deserve beautiful encounters and unbelievable blessings in my history?
" But, YOU ARE MY MOST BEAUTIFUL SECRET. And I don't want to keep you a secret if I love you because I want the world to know that I have somebody like you. I will be proud to be associated with you. "
" And maybe, the scariest is to let somebody take the seat for the reservation you made for yourself. But, it is NOW or NEVER. "
It is mostly that mistaken concept by people. I believe that if we say we love, even if it is our friends, our family, a lover, or other people, we must not expect something in return. It must be that kind of feeling when we don't wait for anything in return. That we do the things we do for them or we give the emotion we invest without asking them to do the same. Or even when we are hurting, we still try to understand and accept, or even when we want to keep them or stay with them, we will always be willing to let them go. Because when we love, we are willing to walk away, or give up or do anything just to make them happy may it include us or not anymore.
To BESTFRIEND at 2:00am,
Most people are busy trying to be cool, known, loved through being seen by the world. But here we are. Locked into each other. Having lunch and dinners on restos, talking and laughing on coffee shops without photos taken. Looking at beautiful things without boasting. We possess valuables and hearts not in broadcast over photoshoots. We make our own party of two laying in bed talking out all the programmed and random ideas. We offer ourselves without favors in return. It makes me love you more knowing that I have "ME" in you. And I hope, if we ever get to meet somebody or get married in time, still, it isn't something the SAME as OURS.
Because OURS is PRICELESS and E...
" But I've never seen a storm so devastating just as how you left her. "
Do you know what's sad?
Making people feel loved but it isn't YOU they want to hear I LOVE YOU from, it isn't YOU they want to feel the WARMTH from.
Do you know what drives them away?
They haven't let go of the disease you wanted to cure.
Do you know what you are left to do at the very least?
Wait for them to get that first aid kit, let them clean and cover their wounds themselves, let them stay still as they pour the disinfectant, then shut up while they cry in pain, watch them fall asleep with tired eyes.
And as the morning comes, you know you both played your part.
Maybe a little more distant, maybe, a little more closer.
Somebody asked me,
"Why do you always sleep?"
" Because that's the only way not to remember my ALONE and LONELY.
My EMPTY and FULL. "
To the one I've kept the closest,
Look at the stars...
And I hope, you get to remember that we are a part of them and even in million years, we'll never depart. If we do in some unfortunate moment, I hope you know that I've spent most of my light for you.
