Engineering change through creativity,
Is like giving a fragrance its own flower to go by,
A vessel for the intangible emotion.

With a gentle stride,
A lightened heart,
Face adorned with a smile.

PAGLIMOT (FORGETTING)
JL Dec 2020
Ang bilis lumipas ng oras at panahon
Parang kahapon lang kung iisipin
Nakaraang buwan iyong kinalimutan
Kasalukuyang buwan, muli'y nakalimutan.

Nakatutok pa rin ako sa aking telepono
Nagbabakasakaling sana maalala mo
Espesyal na araw sa ating dalawa
Na patuloy **** hindi inaalala.
It's okay not to be okay.

LOVE

Is love measured in it's truth, or depth,
Or is it a feeling, that transpires quickly?

You gotta develop.

The Nature of.....LOVE
JL Dec 2020
Love:
To look is not to see,
To hold is not to be.

To have is not to possess
And to own is not to free!

But to hold and yet see
What it means to set free,
With no aim to own, must be
The true nature of love..

Let Tears Melt The Sorrow
JL Dec 2020
When the heart turns heavy,
Allow those tears to flow!

It helps bring back the light again,
Which melts away the sorrow.

Tears cleanse out the stains
Of past regrets and woes,

And rid the mind of a burden
Caused by unsaid words.

Once the tears are done
What remains is love, know

It's always been there and
Will surround you wherever you go.
Keep moving forward. You are loved! ♥♥♥

Pagmamahal / Love
JL Dec 2020
Madali kung mararapatin
Madali kung gugustuhin
Pero sa madali na yan
Mahirap nga pa ring bitawan
Kasi nakakapit pa sa nakaraan
Na pinipilit ulit maging kasalukuyan.

_______________

En­glish Translation:

LOVE
Easy if necessary
Easy if desired
But... if that's easy
It is still difficult to let go?
Because it still clings to the past
Forcing again to be present.

Let's Be In Joy
JL Nov 2020
When desire is a means
To postpone the joy of today,
Let's keep it aside then
And feel the delight in every day.
That which is joyful,
Is complete in every way;
This being our nature
Let's continue to stay,
Unwanting of anything
That simply may,
Seems unreachable and hence
Cause undue delay.
Let's be in the bliss
And joy of today.
Blissful of today.

That Is We
JL Nov 2020
We are alike, as
We are made of
The same soil that was
From the part of
Earth, gritty and harsh,
Unwieldy yet malleable.

Taking form not easily
But once made, stable.
Eyes reflecting the soul,
And heart the love
That lies there and more;
Straining at the load,
But not breaking over.

Holding on to hope ,
Being the anchor
That keeps the whole
From drifting off the shore,
That's us, that's for sure.

Love is....
JL Nov 2020
Love is...

Love is that which holds us together,
And is a force for cohesion.
But when it goes off centre
Turns into a negative emotion.
The master says, be centred
In everything, as you are meant to be!

Dear Friend,
JL Nov 2020
What does it matter,
If the door is padlocked?
The fresh air springs in
Through windows that open out
Am I not the luckier
To have you around??

EX (Ex Boyfriend)
JL Nov 2020
Hndi siya si Perpekto at lalong hindi siya si Mr. Right
Si X-MEN siya, na dati'y lumapit
Ngunit umalis ng dahil sa relasyong nakasakit.


English Translation:


EX (Ex Boyfriend)

He is not Perfect and especially he is not Mr. Right
He is X-MEN (ex-boyfriend), who used to approach
But left because of the hurtful relationship.
Kapag may umaalis, may darating.
Kapag may nawawala, may babalik.

English Translation:

When someone leaves, someone comes.
When something is lost, something will come back.

I, Me and Myself
JL Nov 2020
Here I am,
Just me
And the sun,
As it be
Shining on.
And finding me
On the beach,
Where we
Have come
To see
A little
Rhapsody,
That the breeze
And spray
Play on the beach.
I find me
Seeing the reach,
Of wide expanse
Where I am me
And the world is
As it should be.

LET FAITH KEEP US SAFE
JL Nov 2020
A ship sailing in the pale blue
Waters of the placid sea;
We hold our lives and
Float in the world similarly.

Sometimes the moon enthrals
And the stars shine, its  heavenly.
Other times the sea snarls,
And the waves thrash turbulently!

The challenge for us is to accept
Both occurrence with equanimity,
For the power that rocks the ship,
Is the same one that holds it steady.

And our faith will help us in
Overcoming every adversity.

ME ON THE SWING
JL Nov 2020
A moment on the swing,
I let myself fly on wings
That were gossamer thin.
And there was I floating
Along the breezy bend
All fun and mirth
And giggles bubbling forth.
Nov 2020 · 209
UNBOUND
JL Nov 2020
Free yourself, from the chains
Of expectations
And now feel the thrill
Of exhilaration!

For there is nothing
That is to be awaited,
The world is flowing
It isn't suffocated.

Each moment, a fresh
New breath that stated,
You are alive and well!

And everything proceeds
As was designated;
You are not bound,
Nor relegated
To follow, nor lead, nor be led.

This freedom is life
And needs to be cherished!

Para Sa Mga Umasa..... TAMA NA!!
By: Lovely Joy / September 2020

Ilang araw at buwan na rin ang dumaan
Mga araw na pinagdaanan at naranasan
Na nagbigay ng aral, pasakit, kalungkutan
Pero nangibabaw pa rin ang kasiyahan
Salamat sa alaala at nakaraan, kaibigan.

Kalahati ng aking tula'y naabot na rin
Ilang piyesa, ilang titik, ilang salita na ang nabitawan
Pakiramdam ko mauubusan na ako ng letra
Pero handa naman akong maubusan
Kung ang paglalaanan ng aking pagiging makata ay IKAW.

Naalala mo pa noong huling tinanong kita ng "Ayaw mo na maayos?"
Ni isang salita wala akong narinig mula sa'yo.
Sabi natin noon, laban lang tayo hanggang dulo
Siguro nga eto na yung dulo.
Siguro oras na... oras na...
Susubukan kong kalimutan ka na
Kahit sobrang sakit sa akin ang talikuran ka.
Bibitawan ko na ang natitirang "sana"
At pakakawalan ko na ang paniniwalang "baka.”

Dapat ko ng tanggapin na hindi tayo para sa isa’t-isa
Sabi nga sa isang kanta, pinagtagpo pero hindi itinadhana
Natatagpuan pero nakatakda ring umalis.
Merong babalik, at meron din na maglalaho na lang.
Oo nga't mahal kita..... mahal...pa... kita...
Mahal kita, pero siguro tama na.
Love your self. ♥♥♥

Heaven?
JL Nov 2020
Heaven?

A bare cage
A cup and a tin;
A bird, in rage,
Came rushing in.

Could this be safe?
He thought, picking a grain.
The trap shut, strange
Are the doors of heaven!

VIKING (SAKAY NA!)
JL Oct 2020
VIKING
- Lovely Joy / 22nd September 2020

Unang sulyap mapapasabi kayo ng
"Tara!! Sakay tayo diyan"
At lahat ay naghabulan
Papunta sa pilahan.
Sa simula ay naeenjoy niyo pa  
Pero habang tumataas, buong katawan aayaw na
Sasabihin kay kuya operator na
"Kuya, tamypers muna...",
"Kuya tama naaaaaa..."
At yung taympers na yun, mauuwi sa tiis nalang muna.

Ang dating saya nyo pagkaupo ay napalitan ng takot at kaba  
Ang dating ngiti na kay tamis ay napalitan ng ngiting kay pait.
At ang mga tawa nyo sa mukha ay napalitan ng simangot,
At ang malakas na hiyaw na boses nung una
Napalitan ng pabebeng sambit na "ayoko na."
Sumimple sa isang tabi na tulala at sukang suka na
At sinabing di na uulitin pa
Viking tama na o Viking sige pa?
At sigurado akong sasabihin niyo na
VIKING PAALAM NA!!
Kapit lang.

PAALAM (EX MAHAL)
JL Oct 2020
PAALAM
By: Lovely Joy / 26th October 2020

Paalam sa mga pangakong napako,
Mga pangakong naglakbay na sa malayo.
Sa mga katagang "walang magbabago,"
"At tayo hanggang dulo."
Sa mga salita **** binitawan
Ngunit hindi mo napanindigan.

Paalam sa mga nagdaang araw at buwan
Pero salamat pa rin sa mga masasayang alaala na naranasan.  
Paalam sa mga alaalang masasakit akin ng ibabaon
Iiwan na kita sa aking nakaraan
At palalayain ko na ang aking sarili sa nagdaan.
Yayakapin ko na ang hinaharap at ang aking  kasalukuyan.

Sa pagiging estranghero tayo nagsimula noon
Kaya magpapaalam din ako na bilang estranghero ngayon.
At para sa iyong malawak na kaalaman,
Minahal kita, OO, at minsan naging parte ka ng aking mundo
At isa kang karakter na maisusulat sa kwento ng buhay ko
Yun nga lang, matatapos ang kuwento na di ka kasama hanggang dulo.
Sabi nga sa movie na "One More Chance"
"Bash, don't ever think it was a mistake that you chose to find yourself., that you chose to love yourself a little bit more. Alam ko nasaktan si Popoy, but you said sorry for that 'di ba? Besides, nakabuti naman ang breakup niyo, 'di ba? Bash, minsan it's better for two people to break up, so they can grow up. It takes grown-ups to make relationships work."

— The End —
