**Inspiration

When can I ever see that smile again

When can I see the inspiration in your eyes that mirrors mine

In the days I thought that you are no longer reachable

I just hope you take the initiative and approach or even message me

I am just a mere flower in the brink of the mountains

Leaving a sight with only hopes of sunshine

The sunshine I thought was me was actually you

I ever thought why I survived this long without someone i held

Then I realized that it was you that kept me for long

The day I see just your face makes me want to smile

And kept the hope that I long to find in you

How stupid of me to hold on to that thought

Without any foundation I should be holding on to

Til the sun shines and the moon brings light, that’s how I thought of keeping this hope in me.

**Where do I stand

I write when i think and wonder, ponder then discover.  

The clock is ticking

And I am waiting

I seem to not understand

Am I still a part of this team that I stand

 

I am in nowhere being recognized

For the task I have done yet not mine

Someone is asking this and that

To accomplish things and what not

 

Here I am waiting

For the time is still ticking

When it strikes I want to be leaving

For good or for better on what will it be meaning

 

I complain on small things but not all things

I work on generic things for them to use

Sometimes to them it is just nothing

And take for granted everything

 

I accept things that is given to me

Not because I want to have a name for myself

But a work where I can still pay all my fee

A work where I still can support not just me

 

I think of leaving 

But where am I going

This had kept me pondering

Even today I am still thinking

 

I check on advertisements

To where shall I go

Same company or another venture

Train myself or not

 

I entertain all questions they keep me asking

I share to them the knowledge I am learning

Yet I feel like I am not part  of this team I thought I belong

The old team I yearn for so long

 

Sometimes I only know that they are celebrating

For projects they said they are completing

I am asked to do this and to do that

To test this and to test that

 

With no complaints I am giving

With no grudges I am showing

Yet I can’t help but question

Where do I stand…………..

**Different People Different Experiences

I am so amazed of how different people can be, of how experiences mold people on who they are at present and who they may be in future.

I met a person who was born in a not so rich background yet who knows nothing about houseworks.  Never knew how to cook, don’t know how to clean the house even on weekends and don’t know how to tidy of her own things.  If she ever sees someone clean, she doesn’t seem to be bothered nor help at all.  I so wonder what made her that way and what could possibly ever happen if she marries, how can she cope with married life, well I am not married for one.  But in the hope of understanding her, I came to realize to just don’t care at all.

Another person I met, not to a personal level, but I was amazed because I never thought she was the person who she was.  I thought she was just a commoner but little did I know that she was the baby of the family.  The favorite, the most wanted, the loved and the most taken cared of, at least that’s how I see how her family treats her.  She came to a far away place just to be on her own even if it meant more expense to her family than hers.  

The two examples are exacly opposite, one is fed by experience driven by circumstance yet choose her own way of dealing things while the other chose to experience to learn things not driven by any circumstances.  In these 2 examples we can see one is rich and maybe the other one is middle class.  Reality clearly says that we choose our path based on what we don’t want to do or what we want to gain.

I on the other hand is fed by reality of the world that not all things are free.  That you need to do something to gain something, that if you do nothing you gain nothing as well.  I was not the well loved, the most wanted nor the well taken cared of, I was the total exact opposite.  And that’s probably the reason why I do things on my own and why I can live on my own.  It’s because eversince I am used to feeding myself and taking care of myself.  I would have really wanted to be the second person but I am bounded by what we have which is nothing at that point in time.  That’s the bad thing but the good thing is I can appreciate every little thing I do and treasure it for what it’s all worth.

Experiences are indeed our teacher, it all depends if we take and grab or fed-up and let go and don’t learn at all.  We are the product of our own experiences.  You may be the person what others would want for but they need to dig a whole to discover something worthwhile.  You may be an easy person, but they need to adjust to the way you lived your life.

**Worth

I wish to go back to those days were life was simple and I feel no heavy loads on my shoulder. 
I can write a hundred or thousand words of wisdom, experiences I learned thru the years. 
I matured early and carry loads of responsibility. 
Yet sometimes because of these responsiblities, we feel worn out, tired and completely and unknowingly unable to recognize ourselves anymore. 
There are a lot of “if only” with no other options left. 
But what if the only option to be done is what you have done, and the best option is to sacrifice yourself for the greater good. 
Sometimes I feel like I shouldn’t have sacrificed myself because I just don’t know how to be me anymore. 
To be me or you is recognizing your needs, wants, longings, ambitions, likings and goals without thinking others. 
I feel that I always put myself last in all aspects of my life.
I like someone or something but I kept on denying to myself because I feel that I am not worthy for them. 
I completely degrade my value and I don’t know how to fix it.
I have gone so far, and while others are escaping life’s responsibility, here I am facing it head on.
Completely forgetting that I have a life of my own.

**Positive Life

When you are clouded with negative thoughts

Think of the happy times, happy thoughts and happy memories

Do these in deep thoughts and meditate on these things

When you are surrounded with negative people

Shy away from him or her to avoid conflicts 

Everyday think of how blessed you are

Of how marvelous the people around you and how wonderful God’s masterpiece and creation

Seek for the positive reason behind every events or consequences

For they said that there is a rainbow always after the rain.

There is always truth to this, for when you look back few years after you encounter such circumstance

You will realize of how truly mysterious that things fall in their proper place and time

Tell yourself of how beautiful and how great you are

If only you think of positive things and the great things and difference you can do.

Lastly remember to put your best and genuine smile coz you’ll never know what difference can it make to the people around you.

Giahak na Gugma

Wa ko kabalo nga ang gugma mu igo kanako
Sa tumang panagang wa damha nadakpan jud xa
Pag una nagtuo lang kog amigo ra ta
Pero nagkadugay lahi naman jud xa

Naigo jud diay ko sa pana ni kupido
Pwerte man unta nakong pag dukoduko
Nagsakit na lang jud akong tangkugo
Nindot sya pag una pero nagkadugay mura naman kog bogo

Gihatag nako nimo tanan
Kwarta, gugma, panahon nabinlan na lang kog isa ka baraha
May gani lawas wala nimo kuhaa
Kay na maka shagit nya jud kog darna

Kay pagkadugayan ako ra man diay alaot
Ug nahug naman nuon akoy maot
Gatuo kog imo kong suklian
Giahak ako pa man diay utangan

Karon nakaingon jud ko ang gugma giatay jud
Pagbilin para sa imoha para di ka magsakit gud
Maypa undangan ang pagka amigo kay ako ray magmaoy
Maypang unggoy nalipay pa nga ga cge ug katkat sa kahoy

Ako tawn, daw akong dughan may ga suol
Ingon ko nga dili jud ko nimo mag basol
Pero kung makahinumdum ko ako ra may magmaol
May ka kay wa jud ka nag guol

Kataw an lang nato ning tanan
Kay sa madugayan ako ra lagi mahuwasan
Pasalamat na lang ko ug nahuman na ang tanan
Kay kung madugay dako dako jud ang dangatan

Dri na lang jud ko kutob kay lisod na ug mudako
Akong pahimangno kay dli ni ako
Gisulat ra ko nis alang sa akong amiga
Para makahinumdum sya sa iyang giahak na gugma

Something and Reason

As cheesy as it may seem but who cares, LOL

This is where coincidences cross my path
I saw you from afar, me being the busy lady
Walk right in front of you with your breakfast buddies
I felt awkward but I smile and walk fast

Days passed and I feel like bugging you
For non-sense works I can cancel but I don’t want to
I messaged you and you attended me with eagerness
My heart jumped and I felt like I am special

You had lunched with your teammates
While I had lunch with my only lunch buddy
Awkwardness again enveloped me
But i noticed you glanced at me

You invited us to sit next to you
But I am shy and uneasy too
So we stayed where we are
But then again I saw you throwing glances at us

I don’t know why but there’s a certain unexplainable joy
That was the second time I caught you glancing at me
I am a very low key and timid person
Yet my heart wants to rejoice at that moment

I can’t contain my smile and happiness
It was the smile I wear for how many days and weeks
I bothered you again for things that only you can do
You were busy and never attended me

The day after, I am a bit sad and lonely
But you said sorry for things that you haven’t done for me
I was speechless because you remembered me asking you
I felt like you put emphasis on things I ask of you

There was a meeting and I saw you seated on the same row
You bend yourself and intentionally looked at me
Was it me or I really saw you did that
I noticed you doing that more than once

We ate lunch and you were on the opposite table
I hate you because you deliberately seat opposite me
You look at me wilfully with your colleague on the same table
I hate it coz I don’t know what to do and I felt so anxious

One morning I went to ask a colleague of yours
You saw me and approached me asking why I was there
Explaining with my expressive face
You left, and I saw you throwing glances at me while you talked to your colleagues standing knowingly

Before you were so moody and blue
When I ask you something I felt like you want me to go away
I don’t know why but I still like you though
During those times I felt like you are a girl having those periods

But all along you are special to me
You may not know but that’s what I felt
The first time I saw you, I know that you made my heart leap
My lips smile and fill my life with inspiration

I noticed now, when I ask of your help
You are so attentive with chairs prepared
And when I stand at my back
I felt like you stare at me for a moment or so

You are so obvious now
I felt like even if I am not the intended recipient
You purposely asked and sent the email to me
Hope you may not be too obvious for my colleague to notice

Every day when I go back home
I hope to have you as my company
To talk casually and tell a few stories or so
To smile awkwardly but yet unknowingly

With all these, I just want to tell you
Please tell me if you want to say something
Please approach me and let me not feel so anxious about anything
Please tell me how you feel coz I guess it means everything

I sleep with you on my mind and in my dream
I sleep with a smile and inspired as it may seem
I wake up to go to work with a smile and a heart full of joy
Indeed, you are the reason I stayed, and now I know why
