How do people define FRIENDSHIP nowadays?
It's not when you post a lot of photos together. It's not when you visit each other's house everyday. It's not when you attend each other's special occassions and take a photo with the family members. It's not when you go to the same school or company. It's not when you react on posts or how many times you liked each other's status.
Nowadays, there is a very big misconception of what FRIENDSHIP is.
Shall we blame today's technology for this misconception? Shall we blame parents for these young people's upbringing? Shall we blame the generation itself for not knowing how to evaluate and be matured enough?
Friendship, isn't about all that what y...
They told her, "ALWAYS DO THE RIGHT THING AND YOU WILL LIVE."
And she has kept these words all her life. One day, she wondered, "HOW COME THEY ARE STILL ALIVE?"
More days followed and she was able to comprehend, TO LIVE DOESN'T MEAN PERFECT. TO LIVE DOESN'T MEAN I CAN. TO LIVE DOESN'T MEAN I WILL. But, it means, I MAY NOT BE PERFECT, I MAY NOT ALWAYS CAN, I MAY NOT ALWAYS WILL and that's fine because everyone commit mistakes and that's how WE TRULY LIVE.
There are these days when I want to walk away from the world or shut it off. The kind of world that comes in different shapes but has a single face. Then, live with mine and yours which I think, is a world we both made differently reckless and brave but a chance and choice of a LOVE that reach for the impossible to happen in the midst of chaos.
To my girlfriends,
I do not know how many I MISS YOU and I LOVE YOU we have to send via internet before we see each other again. But despite of this longing is the pride that we are our parents' hope today. And we are slowly, gently becoming the people they need us to be. I hope, you like your choices. Because I love mine.
She can be kind to everyone. She can be polite. But she doesn't give privileges in bargains. Only those who are close to her must have it.
He was standing in front of the gate. Staring from afar, looking on the stage with a severe glint on his eyes. He was wearing his usual attire - thin thead of long sleeves, faded old pants, both slightly painted of dark mud. He has always been a FARMER in his HEART and APPEARANCE.
Another man walked on his side - leather shoes, ironed pants, classy linen on top with a brand of fragrance he didn't recognize.
Without agitation, he still stood there. On the same spot. He didn't bother to compare and contrast who's standing next to him or what he doesn't have that the other holds.
Then suddenly, the other man's voice filled the air...
Other Man: Hi! What's up? I believe we attended the same cl...
She's a fan of all the UNKNOWN for SHE, herself, is NOT KNOWN.
"Saving oneself at the expense of the other. That's when excuses are so functional."
"You should've been my Lancelot. But I was NEVER your Queen."
Tapos tatayo ako,
Ngingiti sa harap mo,
Dahil nakaya ko,
Nakaya ko na wala ka sa buhay ko.
She chooses all the can't.
She did all the didn't.
She laughed all the sad.
She displayed all the not.
I still want to open a coffee shop with the smell of brewed coffee, books and diverse unplanned random thoughts in OUR names.
I still want you to have your room to crash in, when I start to build my house.
I still want to plan your entourage and reception when you get married.
I still want to be the second Mom of your kids.
I still want to go back in time with these historical places in the world I promised to visit with you.
Because nothing changed.
I didn't changed.
I still want all the things I've dreamt to come true WITH YOU - SOMEDAY.
You'll get through this.
You'll make your dreams come true.
They will see you.
They will be proud of you.
They will love you.
When that day comes, stay the YOU in day one.
She needed that.
A soothing hug.
A little gesture of affection.
An unexpected home.
She's so fragile.
She needed to cling to her.
She's so strong.
She needed to stand for her at some point.
Though she and her, are a different version.
She could somehow tell her parents to be proud of their daughter because she is LOVED by some BEAUTIFUL STRANGERS. And indeed, one of the best TEACHERS.
Been a very long time.
It started to be a routine since being INDEPENDENT is a MUST.
We can't meet the same people twice. That's why we have to SEE and APPRECIATE them in DAY ONE.
Sometimes, we have to meet a STRANGER to see that person who was long GONE.
She's not your muse.
She is her own muse.
She's not your wit.
She's her own wit.
She's not your pumpin' blood.
She is her own pumpin' blood.
She is WHO and WHAT she is on her OWN.
Find your chest of drawers and hide as you grief in your pants greed.
Because no matter what, I will LIVE.
Because you are not ready to correlate with the malfunction of her fragile machinery with the same spot in the lower left of your chest called HEART.
I'm not sad.
I'm just reminiscing.
I'm not alone.
I'm just trying to retrieve my world.
I'm not walking away.
I'm just looking for the things that makes me WHOLE.
