Hearts upon our sleeves.
Both wearing the scars of yesterday.
With tear stained face.
Both still bleeding and barely breathing.
as ego and pride starts to separate us
and the act of reconciliation was
a risk no one was willing to take
our love was so overwhelming
that either makes or breaks us
as you changed for the better
but I changed for the worst
a fantasy turned disaster
a love story turned melodrama
An enchancting meeting
was nothing but a beautiful mistake
both close to being strangers
as we fight with different emotions
one wanting to continue
while the other wanting to surrender

As I saw you down the street
I hurriedly went to discreet
I saw a glimpse of an angel
But compatibility isn’t one of our angle

I wish I could walk up to you
So that my life will be full of color and hue
Skipping, Screaming, Singing with Joy
As Admired you from a distance

with a line that seperates you and me
and its a gap enough for you and I
as you walked pass across the line
uttered a simple greeting of “hi”

a smile enough to light up my world
my world stops as you converse with me
it was you and I against the world
as if it was meant to be

Life’s a battlefield
its a game with one life
the main goal is to
give it your best shot
lucky if you were given another chance
to enter this battlefield
where money and power are your weapons
love and care is your only protection
and family is your safezone
In this battlefield your enemies
are your weaknesses,insecurities and poverty
as I grew up i realized
i was on my own
no allies or cheats needed
the government you once thought was your ally
was nothing but a facade,because the only ally you need is yourself
a battle against life is hard
no cheats or armors to be used
its a man vs. self battle
surrounded by money and power hungry people
where crab mentality is prominent.
you will be surrounded by temptation
that will test your morals and values
But my dear lord like the camel that passes through the needle’s eye,
I’ll live humbly for you
for your whole existence is my sliver linning in this world full of pain and regret  between your arms is where I should be
Being with you is my home for eternity.
unlike the rich young man I’ll give everything up for you but
I won’t give up on you because its you and I till infinity
Now all I ask is for you to stay with me and love me with all your heart
for I’m willing to give you everything you deserve and all I own
Take me as I am for I’m perfectly imperfect but I’m perfectly perfect for you

Behold as a new chapter unfolds,
With stories left untold.
A new beginning starts
With a fully healed heart.

He left me without a fight.
knowing he was my kryptonite.
I was nothing but a waste of his precious time.
how foolish of me to think I was special

A facade of a happy relationship,
Ended unexpectedly
With nothing but bittersweet memories
Both back to square one where it all started

But the relationship left me speechless.
getting rid of it was nothing but useless.
A person I thought was worth the fight.
who throughout would hold me tight

Here I am convincing myself with lies “don’t worry, I’m okay”
But once I hear his name, another episode begins
Once I see his face flashbacks occurs
Guess I’m not that strong after all

Strangers with same memories but different feelings.
Pretending as if it never existed.
A risk I thought I was willing to take,
was nothing but a beautiful mistake.

I’m sorry for the damage I’ve caused
I’m perfectly imperfect
I’m not the girl you were expecting
I’m just somebody you used to know

Pinas na minamahal
Lugar na aking sinilangan
Bansang kayraming yaman
Ngunit buhay ang kapalit
Nang sumigaw upang marinig
Pagkat nanlaban kaya dugo ang kapalit
Laban nga ba sa droga o laban sa bayan?
Ang tanging tanong na binabatid
Ang tanong na di mawala sa isip.
Ang yaman ng bayan naglalahong parang bula
Sa bulsa ng pamahalaan makikita
Bilihin na nagmamahal
Sa bibig na lang ng presidente ang mura
Sa atin pa ba ang bayan?
O kabilang na sa mga estado ng tsina at amerika
Mga kababayan na lumuluwas sa bayan
Makamit lamang ang kaginhawaan
Dugo, pawis at buhay ang naging kapalit
Ang kabataan nga ba ang pag-asa ng bayan?
Pagkat sila’y sa selda makikita imbis na sa paaralan
Sambit nila’y kulang daw sa disiplina at pagsisikap
Habang sila’y nagbubulag bulagan at nag-bibingi-bingibingian
Ano na nga ba ang katotohanan?
Saan na nga ba nakabase ang tama at mali?
Susunod ba sa pamahalaan o sumigaw para sa ating kinabukasan?

It was one Shakespeare afternoon,
To be, or not to be that is the question,
Should I be a reckless lover or a coward admirer?
But, I chose to be the reckless one.

With all of my courage, I typed in the words “I like you”.
You casually replied “thanks”
It broke my heart as anxiety attacks.
But then I nonchalantly replied “welcome”.
After that you chose to change the topic.

As days pass by, communication starts to fade.
I then realized you weren’t oblivious but a coward instead.
You chose to listen to the circulating rumors,
Avoid issues as if it never existed.

How foolish of me to like someone like you—
A person who points out the fault of anyone and thinks highly of himself;
A person who does nothing but complain;
And a person who never thinks of anyone.

Well now, I think you’re a pathetic excuse of a man—
Who never has the guts to do anything at all;
Who thinks he’s superior;
And who everyone thinks is a
“boyfriend material” when he’s actually not.

— The End —
