from the bunch… i choose y’all

would you rather be with whom

a bunch of smart kids from the urban

with nothing but thick books and journals at hand

classroom honors and quiz-bee masters 

with “silence please” all around 

or would you be with the…

popular, the rich kids from the city

with nothing at hand but bunch of money

partying till dawn, wearing tees and shorts all night long 

“easy go lucky” as they call

or would it be better to fit in..

to a group of sexy and pretty girls

boys chase and die for

with nothing at hand but a bag of cosmetics and a huge self mirror

loves going to the mall, dating and giving guys a call

or would you choose…

a team of weird people

loves to stroll around and walk through the woods

loves to talk about anything under the sun without limit

doesn’t care for time just to finish their games

floating ideas all along, mister Newton must jump in

or should it be the…

sports hottie, the sports girls from the gym

where training is their life and NBA is their thing

spending hours for practice

to avoid defeat or miss…

or is it better to….

sit in with the creatives, where pen and paper is their thing

ideas, concepts, and art is what they breath

expressing themselves, sharing stories, lines and poems

mister Shakespeare must sit in

wether or not we know our friends

we love them and we are identified with them

but at times,

people can be friends despite their differences, despite their interests, despite of what they want

i guess that is the magic of friendship

you can go places, you can cross boundaries

you can test your limits

you can be as sassy, crazy or noisy

but at the end of the day

friendship is not about what you share, of what and why you bond

of what keeps you together.. but it’s about

the respect, the trust

the willingness to know each one of your friends whole heartedly

with ain’t no cruel intentions just purity and sincerity

from a bunch we must choose to know each member not to identify the wholeness of it

not in accordance of how you perceived them to be

take time

sit down

call a friend

ask her

is she/he okay, what are her ideas, what does she/he likes

for when you know

you may have chosen the best bunch of people to be with

but you may have lost the best person

because you have acted like it is as if….

you are not interested to know the real story behind each, each one of your friend

never take them for granted

for it is hard to mend and or comprehend

when a true friends is hurt by another friend

it is like living a life of fret

The Thick Eyeglasses

she grew from a four-cornered hall

her face hidden on a thick eyeglasses

she seemed to be so timid and shy

as she grew and went to school, she was bullied

she ran after her teacher once a classmate would scold her

once a classmate would tell her she’s ugly

once a seatmate would throw her a piece of paper

and once a classmate would push her through the wall

it has never been as easy

arriving home, she tends to be…

beaming with smile acting it’s as if everything at school was fine

seeing her dad at the front door with a smile

dad, who has been her source of strength since then

she goes to school the other day

numb of all the name-names thrown on her

she tends to pretend that everything will be fine, got used to it and it’s as usual

years have passed, she grew into someone who is far from the timid little girl from the four corners

expanded her ways as she crossed boundaries

she mingled with different people

brought her thick eyeglasses on and the courage within, she was a big girl from then on 

just like the old days she hide her eyes from the worldliness

controlled her ears to filter the noise

taught her lips to speak a few

and equipped her heart to be brave

held the hands of those who understood

embraced those who trusted and believed in her

and turned her back to those who judge her

thou everything may have been as superficial, skeptical and rational

the girl from the four corners is still inside her

but then covered with a superficial mask to save her

to save her from the doubtful, the dishonest and the mischief 

she’s been through enough

but as she looks back

seeing her dad on the door smiling

ain’t no mischievousness can further destroy her

ain’t no rumor can crash her

and no one can ever treat her as a trash

cause she is saved, saved by his fathers smile 

all the while 

hidden or found, deep or superficial

saved and loved….

that keeps her going….

 

In Time

it’s been years, and i still can’t get through this tears

counting the months, and it’s been you that i can’t replace 

everyday, seemed to be a day anew

with this thoughts of you that’s been haunting my soul

in every hour, i can’t stop thinking of you, of where you are and what you’re going through 

with every minute of my life, am ought to spend it with this simple joy inside my head…

that i adore you, since then and till today, it’s true 

for a second i stumble, and asked myself to why i love you this harder

is it not better to just forget with ain’t no regret

and live a lovely life with ain’t no fret

in time, i believe I’ll seek all the answers

in due time, i’m ought to swallow all this and conquer

with this love I’ve created and falter 

that reigns inside of me forever

and in the right time, i will realize…

that all this time i was just a wanderer

Chase

if I were to run, I’d run as fast as i could

I’d go to you

and haunt you

if I was lost and have no place to go

I’d look up and seek for you

if I was hungry with nothing to eat

I’d feed my soul with wisdom and courage to get through

if i were nobody, I’d work hard to be somebody

beyond titles but more of dignity

beyond fame but more of freedom

if i were to run, i’d run as fast as i could

I’ll chase those negatives away

be thrilled and learn throughout my way

I’d be grateful, even if I’m empty-handed

I’d be thankful even if I’ve been through rough

for at the end of every race

my tower of achievement, my victory and reality

is thy will be done

positive, truthful, happy and with peace

would you run as fast? would you?

if i were to run, I’d run as fast as i could

Rise above any Challenge….

i just proved one thing and that is…

if it is for you I’ll be whole-heartedly given and if it is not maybe you have to mend something on your attitude or even your life or the wholeness of thyself 

chances are given to improve ones self

changes are inevitable

guided by wisdom and faith

you’ll never go wrong

just bring it on

keep it going

life is beautiful

keep it strong, truthful and sincere

trust thyself, love thyself

give and forgive

rise when you fall, never get tired, never seek for revenge

and with peace love and extreme happiness

I, You, We shall truly get by…. 

Forgiveness beyond Success

success is not about attaining the highest achievement

but success is about molding thyself to become a better person

i may have tried a million challenges

succumb a million trials

conquered my each and every fear

but if i myself, can’t forgive nor can’t let go

i can’t merely move forward

i can’t merely go beyond

if only I’ve just learned how to forgive and to forget

if only I’ve learned how to leave out the past

if only I’ve molded my heart with joyous thoughts than sorrow

if only i was able to admit

if only i was able to let go 

if only i was able to love and trust myself

if only,

but now is here

and it’s all I’ve got

i may learn all of this little by little

but i know i’ll eventually get through it

like in my dreams

          a warrior, a cavalier, a soldier

i can win this battle

against me, against my pride, against my ego

i will surpass and eventually succeed

beyond any achievement and that is to forgive                                    

Stand Still

a 600 question that can change ones life forever

a 12 hour scenario that is bound to be filled with stress and anxiety

a 3 months preparation wrapped with discipline and sacrifices

tell thee, was this enough

was everything worth the fight

has everything turned out right 

a minute of prayer

few hours of camaraderie

days of comfort

periods of agony

tell the was this worth keeping

tell thee, to still believe in 

keep thy faith within

learn from thy mistakes and heal

freed thyself from uncertainty

from a multitude of reason to give up

gives thee tumultuous reason to stand up 

A fighter

hidden in a cabin

cold and in famine

hidden in the dark

waiting for that spark

believing and living

waiting and persevering 

hoping and  being..

stronger and bolder

just keeping thy faith tighter

trust in thee and stand taller

with thy soul that ponders

keeping thy strength together

composing thy self to get better

through it all you were born to be a fighter    

 

My Grip Of Faith

how far did i go

how ample did i accomplished

how did faith changed me

how did trust mold me

how did love complete me

 

for the numerous wrongs, there seemed to be one thing that remained right and that is

to keep the faith, trust in God, surrender everything

be humble enough to commit mistakes, change, for what seemed to be right

give with no expectations, love for no reasons.

through our darkest day, we can see the light,

grip those faith at hand

cast away those evils behind

amidst everything that could have happen

i know i gave a good fight

for i have God beside me

my family and friends behind me

and me, battling out towards the greatness of everything.

to God be the glory

God knows, God gives and God prevails 

Hello 2013 my shoutout

There are many reasons to be grateful and thankful for, 2012 has been a whirlwind ride, kinda tough, crazy, and of course happy. There were sorts of drama, piles of comedy and yes a bit tragedy yet it all came up to be one good story. Lessons were learned thou mistakes were committed, it has never stopped me from growing, reinventing and yes, changing, a bit, or more could be enough. I may have lost some but I have gained more, more truthfulness, dozes of reality, good friends and family and me in behalf of my loved ones being groovy and healthy. Truly it has been good but I pray and hope for a better 2013. More mature roles to take, more laughter to create, more lesson to take and more challenges to inhale, with my true friends, and family behind me and my God beside me I know I can make it through, we’ll make it through HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE lets leave out our worries and our past, compile them and make them your armor to carry on the days of tomorrow. LET’S GET IT ON
