Is it possible?

I have so many questions that needed answers…

Is it possible to love one person alone?

Is it possible to be faithful?

Is it possible?

What makes a person love someone sincerely and genuinely?

Have you found her?

Is there a reason you should pursue her?

If the answer is yes,

what’s the reason?

Do you love her?

If yes,

it’s okay.

You are free to love.

But, your freedom ends when it harms the person.

You say, you have feelings for her.

But, if you do have feelings for her,

Why would you refrain from pursuing?

Maybe, you are in doubt?

It might be because you are not sure enough.

Or, you have other girls in mind as potential mates.

Don’t worry, it’s okay.

It’s perfectly normal.

Just go on with your life full of possibilities.

Enjoy your God given blessings.

As what other people say,

In this game of life called love,

To which side do you belong?

Are you winning?

Or, Are you losing?

Love is the most beautiful thing that God created for us to experience.

Love with no regrets.

Love with no pretensions.

Love and give it all you have.

Love is not meant for cowards, but for courageous beings only.

Be brave. You can do it, love.

Mangarap

Ano ang gusto mong abutin,

ano ang gusto mong maging?

Ano ang kakayahan mo?

Huwag mong pakinggan ang mga bulong,

bulong na nagsasabing hindi mo kaya,

na hindi mo kayang harapin ang dilim.

Ang dilim na nagsasabing nag-iisa ka lang,

sa hamon ng buhay na ating hiniram lamang.

Bakit?

Bakit ba, ang hilig natin balik balikan ang nakaraan.

Bakit ba, gustong gusto mong nasasaktan?

At hanggang ngayon, sobrang daming tanong,

na hirap mong unawain at hirap intindihin.

Ang tanong na bakit ay napakapait.

Masaya. Malungkot. Nakakakaba.

Tila pinaglalaruan tayo ng tadhana,

Paulit – ulit, na parang isang gulong.

Kailan ka ba matututo sa mga pagkakamali ng nakaraan.

Kailangan ulit ulitin? Hindi ka ba nag-sasawa?

Hindi na natuto.

Panahon na, para bumangon sa pagkalugmok.

Huwag na. Tapusin na ang dapat tapusin.

Bigyang tuldok ang umaasang katapusan,

sa pangungusap na pilit na binibitin.

Hinga ng malalim. Ipikit ang mata.

Tapos, matulog ka na.

Panibagong araw na naman ulit bukas.

Panibagong kwento.

Panibagong pakikibaka sa buhay,

na pilit hinahanapan ng solusyon,

sa mga bagay na hirap intindihin.

Aking Sinta

Aking Sinta

Aking Sinta

Ikaw ang ligaya

Ikaw ang tinitibok ng puso

At kahit pa tayo’y magkaproblema

Ikaw pa rin ang Iibigin ko,

At sa bawat araw na kasama kita,

Punong puno ako ng saya,

Pinapagaan mo ang aking loob,

Lalo na pag ako’y malungkot.

Aking Sinta,

Sayo ko nadama,

Ang tunay at tapat na pag ibig,

Tandaan mo nandito lang ako,

Nagmamahal sayo.

Aking Sinta,

Salamat talaga,

Nandiyan ka lagi para sa akin,

O mahal ko, handa akong makinig.

For my future husband. 😂❤️ Although wala pa naman akong boyfriend. 😅 Ginawa ko lang tong tula. Hahaha

I’m tired playing this mind games

I’m tired playing this mind games,

Doing this and that, for what purpose, I know not;

Who are you? Tell me the real you,

No pretensions, no sugarcoating.

Tell me who you are,

Are you ready to be vulnerable?

In the midst of the people surrounding you,

they’re quite numerous to count..

But who are you, when no one’s watching..

Are you still the same sanguine?

Or are you the soft-heart one..

The kind, and loving, yet strong but assertive?

The smart-thinking and reserved?

The light reflecting the sun and the moon in the dark,

Or are you the wind beneath my wings?

Ready to stretch your arms before I fall towards your gravity,

Do you ever think of me, like how I watch over you,

But worry not, I won’t force myself to you..

I will not.. But I can be your friend, if that’s all there is,

If your heart belongs to someone else,

I would gladly accept my fate..

You and I in this world full of tears and joy,

You and I, as friends…

You are a treasure,

yet to be discovered, by any pirate in the seven seas,

But I’m blessed because I had the strength to communicate with the real you..

Though I’m not sure my stand per your view,

I will treasure this friendship until my last breath.

Bulaklak na araw

mangarap.png

Mahal kong bulaklak na araw, sa paglipas ng init at ulan.
Patuloy kang lumalago at namumukadkad.
Gumaganda at nabibighani ang mga bubuyog sa iyong puring kaakit-akit.
Wag mong limutin, na ako’y isang kaibigang nagmamahal sayo.

Nang minsan sa hiram na buhay natin, tayo’y nagkasama;
Kahit na ako’y pataba lamang sa lupang iyong tinubuan.
Katabi ng mga uod at putik; kasakangkapan, sa iyong pamumukadkad.
Masaya ako na paunti-unti ay nagkakaroon ka ng saysay sa mundong ito.

Hindi man ako kagandahan, at madumi man sa tingin ng nakararami;
Sana’y malaman mo, na nandito pa rin ako, sayo’y nakaagapay.
At kung ikaw man ay pitasin at kunin ng mga kamay ng Prinsipeng araw;
Kahit ako’y iyong nilisan, magiging masaya ako para sa inyo.

At sa paglipas ng panahon. Kung ikaw man ay mangulubot.
Mawalan ng magandang kulay, at biglang manuyo;
Wag mong limutin, na ako’y nakaabang lamang sa mga binhi,
Na itatanim at didiligan ng isang masipag na palad.

Hihintayin ko muli ang iyong pag-laki at pag-lago.
Wag mangamba. Wag malungkot. Ika’y mamumukadkad muli.
Pagmamasdan ng mga bubuyog, ng prinsipeng araw at tagatanim,
ang iyong magagandang alulot na tila’y sumasayaw sa ihip ng hangin.
