sweet surrender

used to be anxious but learned to calm down

used to be worried but learned to let go

used to be nervous but learned to breathe

used to give in easily but learned to refuse when needed

used to be fooled easily but learned to play the cards well

used to doubt but decided to trust, anyway

used to always be in a hurry but learned to walk slowly and enjoy every step

you see, life is not always about sweets and smooth roads

it is most likely a bumpy journey to the mountains

but while you are on this never ending quest, never ever lose yourself

because at the end of it all, it is you, who matters the most

get up, beautiful being and be proud of who you’ve become

cheers to a meaningful life well-lived!

until when do you have to live in mystery

until when will you allow others to unlock you

until when will you let people see your real beauty

until when will you break the glass

until when will you let the world know that you, too, is a vulnerable being

until when will you free yourself from all the doubts

until when will you stop burning bridges

until when will you sit down and talk

i hope that when that time comes

the person in me is still here, ready to hold your hand and unfold everything

hands up

tried not to peek but lost

tried not to give it a thought but lost

tried your best not to wander but you lost

tried not to remember the good memories but lost

still trying not to shed a tear but still losing

tried to run away but lost

still trying not to think of you but obviously, you lost

you very well know that you lost but it’s just about time to turn the page

more so, close the book and look forward to grabbing and enjoying a new book

head up high. you’re winning, young lady!

 

Aquil

you were the person we never saw but learned to love you

you were the person we never touched but learned to feel you

you were the person we never hugged but learned to feel your warmth

it was almost the best welcoming meet up but for some heavenly and inexplicable  reasons, you had to be taken away from us

you were someone we never had in our arms but you will forever be a part of us

you were like a God, your presence is strongly felt

no matter how painful and hurtful it is, you will be in our minds and hearts until eternity

Thank you, Aquil, for bringing so much joy to us

for being a great source of inspiration and strength to all of us more so, for being an angel.

Thank you.

I love you, my dear nephew

We love you forever.

it’s that time again

to get up and get going

it’s that time again

to stand tall and be proud

it’s that time again

to learn a great lesson

it’s that time again

to let go of the things you really have no control

it’s that time again

to let go of the doubt

it’s that time again

to just believe and love like a young child

it’s that time again

to have that genuine smile

it’s that time again

to see things at a brighter and better perspective

 

 

 

cheers! You deserve all the beauty and love this world has to offer. Keep sparkling!

does silence always mean yes? or is it just a way to get away with it?

does silence mean peace? or is it just a way not to create chaos?

does silence mean calmness? or is it just a way to hide the fear and doubt?

does silence mean stability? or is it just a way to keep your trembling?

does silence mean contentment? or is it just a way to hide insecurities?

does silence mean you like it? or is it just your way not to hurt?

perhaps

silence…a sure great way to express that not a tiny care you have

silence…almost synonymous to whatever you say

but

why are people afraid to talk?

what’s there to be afraid of?

why be a coward when we only got a short life to live and love?

why is it so hard to pull the words out?

hopeful still, one day, enough courage you will have

to speak up, talk it out loud, let your heart out

that would be music to the ear even if the words would hurt

it may hurt now but let’s keep it this way

i may not understand a lot of things but let’s keep it this way

this is not how it’s supposed to be but let’s keep it this way

i may have a lot of questions but let’s keep it this way

it sure will bring me to tears but let’s keep it this way

i may want to hold hands with you but let’s keep it this way

beautiful mistake, indeed it was

you were peace in the midst of chaos

regrets, i have none

i choose to keep it this way
