My Sweet Angel
November 10, 2008
Sa walong buwan na aming pinagsamahan
At sa siyam na buwang aking pinaghintay
Larawan ng isang malusog at masiglang bata
Natatanaw sa kilos at mga ngiti mo
Mga matang ‘yong nakuha sa Papa
Ang halakhak na tulad ng sa ‘yong lola
Ang hindi maipagkakailang noo ng ‘yong lolo
At ang kahiligang pag-akyat na nakuha kanino nga ba.
Ang mga ngiting walang katapusan
Ang malilikot na paa at kamay, kung sa’n sa’n nakakarating
Mga paghuni na tila musika sa aking pandinig
Munting mga salita ay talagang pinananabikang ‘yong mabigkas
After the rain
I used to be the naughty and mischievous girl that everybody dares to challenge. Simple and yet a marvel! I am simply what I want to be, not what others think I should be. In my 24 years of lving a decent and fulfillling life, I must say I have my mistakes. For the first time in my life, I admitted my faults, inconsistencies and shortcomings. I am only human, vulnerable and naive. I am not superwoman or a hero able to stand on my own. I needed other. I need friends, companions who are there to support, to understand and to accept. I am frail bleeding inside out. Can anyone hear me...
Gone are the days when all I do is to eat..drink and sleep...
The days when I can go wherever, whenever I want to...
That I can easily and freely do anything I want with everything..
When I have unlimited access to anyone anytime...
Gone are those days when I could just chat to my heart's content...
And laugh 'till my heart drops...
Women in Friendship
When I was little,
I used to believe in the concept of one best friend,
and then I started to become a woman.
And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up,
God would show you the best in many friends.
One friend is needed when you're going through things with your man.
Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your mom.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
One friend will say, "Let's cry together,"
another, "Let's fight together,"
another, "Let's walk away together."
One friend will meet your spiritual need,
