Keep Calm

Keep calm when everything around you is a mess.  Think clearly when distractions try to ruin your serenity.  Breathe deeply when you think you are about to burst.  Seek God’s presence when you feel you are being engulfed by madness.  And move forward even if you think you can’t fight those obstacles in front of you.

Life is a cycle. You win some, you lose some. You’re sad now, you will be happy later. Never give up and keep on dreaming, hoping and praying.

Step Back

By the time you realize you have given your all yet nothing is appreciated, is the time when you want to retrace your steps, lower the amount of your empathy and start anew.

By the time when you get to know the truth and knew that people doesn’t seem to fit in your beautiful world, is the time when you want to cut the chain and lose it forever.

By the time when you start to comprehend those evil thoughts that has been swimming inside people’s heads, is the time when you want to drown yourself in order to erase their memories.

It’s a waste of time to commune with these kind.  It’s harmful to exchange some ideas with them.  You wouldn’t want that kind of drama to begin with.

Huffin’ and Puffin’

Have you ever wondered if your existence in this other world you live into has been very significant? You contemplated for awhile, trying to figure out if people you touched and uttered a word with are the ones who can give you that very much needed comfort and peace of mind.

You have been very blind from the things that you want to give importance to. But then you came into a conclusion that you didn’t know what are those things that you want to give focus to in the first place. Thus, you felt the need to disappear.

Everything is a mess and your thoughts are jumbled. And once again, you needed the comfort of a cigarette. You resorted to that huffin’ and puffin’ again. You smoked to your heart’s delight…

Carousel

Once she was riding a carousel much to her delight. She was riding high and she was riding low, thinking she owned such treacherous plaything and would never part from it. It even came to a point she was almost sure that the pleasure and the sense of belonging she was seeking can only be found in that carousel.

And so she continued to ride high and to ride low. She was pleased.

But the carousel was not hers to be owned. It belonged to someone else and she knew that to begin with.

She has to let go and she has to forget everything. Those blissful moments have to cease and those assumed thoughts has to be erased.

She thought herself stupid for letting herself be assured of something fickle and so irrelevant. She was building castles in the air, she realized.

And with that, she had a great fall.

Survival

No matter how tough the road is, we can always find so many ways to walk beyond and reach either our desired destination or the destination fate will give us.

No matter how strong the tide is, we can always permit ourselves to go with the flow and eventually learn to swim amongst the biggest waves and reach the shores in the end.

And no matter how dark the night is, morning will always come and our journey begins anew.

Never forget that even with our darkest hours, the light will always have its way to reach us.

Life’s Journey

In every journey, there are different kinds of obstacles that we are to face and it takes a lot of guts, compassion, determination and maybe a dash of eccentricity to surpass such obstacles.

To begin with, every journey is an adventure where pleasure and sorrow are intertwined. Life is a journey but it is not a walk-in-a-park kind of voyage. The road may be smooth-sailing or arduous, undemanding or complicated but if we only equip ourselves with enough amount of strength, faith and optimism, we will never, ever lose our way.

It Happens

It happens

to those who keeps changing its lairs.

The heart beating fearfully,

the heart bursting with gladness.

It changes

every now and then.

Darkness falls and it suddenly see the light.

Sunshine hides and it suddenly feels its shadows.

Silence is everywhere

yet voices keep hollering inside its head.

The sound of laughter is getting near,

yet it cannot taste happiness.

What is happiness to begin with?  It asks.

But tears of pain slowly slide away.

How is sadness felt?

But its smile eventually turns to guffaws.

Jump up, slow down.

Breathe not, make a frown.

Everything changes – its hue and its substance.

No one knows what it is thinking

and it knows not where it will head next.

It happens. It’s real.

But who gives a shit about it? 

No one.

Because no one understands.
