It had been a glorious year of poetry for me. Indeed, glorious because of the friendship with you, fellow bloggers, whom I highly regard knowing the amount of heart and passion we are all giving to our blogs. I sincerely admire you all.
However, the professions I chose, which is accounting and legal are both quite conservative fields, due to the sensitivity of their nature restrictions on socializing are inevitable. Moreover, I just accepted an offer from CPA firm that operates globally–it’s a dream come true for me. The position is still internship, but it’s paid. And I want to keep the job until I finish law school, with the LLM (tax attorney) and a CPA title at the end of my name.
Yes, I am ambitious, but being a mom of three, my goal in life, is to give my kids the brightest future coming from my own hard-earned money. So, forgive me.
In this regard, please allow me to say, I’ll see you later. It’ll probably be in your respective blogs already. For though my sites will still be up, I wouldn’t be writing anymore or for a quite a while.
Below is a poem I wrote long time ago. And I humbly dedicate it to you all. Thank you, and God bless everybody! Aloha!
In disagreements or opposing views,
They do not harass one another,
To accept their personal stands
On any subject matter.
They understand and brace
Each other’s individuality
And amidst all differences.
In giving or sharing,
They do not abuse one another,
To gain personally
Out of each other’s weaknesses.
They value and respect
Each other more than any gains
And amidst all vulnerabilities.
In critical or bad times,
They do not turn their backs from one another,
To spare themselves and save their faces
In the darkest moments.
They sit; they listen; they spare shoulders during
Each other’s trying times
And amidst all challenges.
Because, they are FRIENDS!
They honor; they cherish; they comfort
And bring out the best
In one another,
Unconditionally. . .
FRIENDSHIP is the highest form of LOVE
Lovers may come and go,
But friends stay.
Even if you wrinkle,
Or you are six feet down under,
In their hearts,
So, cherish your friends!
Yesterday, I wrote a poem featuring a very touching MTV. I was actually trying not to give in to my “scribbling itch,” because of lists of things to do for school and work. However, I was so touched by that MTV and the love story behind it. Because the singer and his leading lady, are actually real life couple from my native country, Philippines.
Richard Poon is a singer, and Dr. Maricar Reyes (a plastic surgeon) was a beauty titlist. They got wed last June. However, not too long ago, Reyes was dragged into a YouTube sex scandal with a medical intern psycho–who lied about having license to practice medicine, and ruined three women’s lives, Hayden Kho.
Reyes and Kho dated (discreetly), while the latter was seeing two more other celebrity women; one was way past his age (but a doctor too, and their affair was known to public), and the other was a young starlet (he dated discreetly too). Without Reyes knowledge, some of their alleged “rendezvous under the blanket” were videotaped and posted on YouTube and porn sites. She only learned about it, when one of the other two women went in public and exposed the guy. Regardless, true or not, of course it was very damaging for her.
Because our (women’s) reputation is no different from a crystal–fragile; very fragile! Once it’s broken, it’s broken; we can’t gather the broken pieces back and pretend nothing change.
So, imagine how rough it had been for Reyes and her family? As she came from a decent family too, and not to mention they’re close-ties and well to do. And, imagine too, how Poon and Reyes overcame the mountains they had to climbed just to get to the aisle? This is why, their MTV of You and I came out so beautiful.
I am moved by Reyes’ courage. Because sadly, not all women have and could have the courage to love again after such traumatic incident. And if I am moved by Reyes courage, I am very impressed of the manliness and sincerity of Richard. Apparently, he didn’t even kiss her on the lips, until they exchanged I do–so sweet, dang!
Nothing is surprising though, for God indeed is so good! See? HE blessed Reyes of a man of purest heart and most gentle spirit. So, kudos to Richard–for he earned not just listening ears, but the respect of the world. While of course, Maricar with her courage to move on and to love again, she earned the crown of the universe–my best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Poon!
Thank you, WordPress! Have a great day! Aloha = ))
one of the toughest ironies of life:
Everything that breathes,
And that includes
You and I.
And that the only thing
that is safe from time—
Or the lack of it,
is this beautiful thing
we share and keep
in our hearts. . .
For though our bodies
may turn to dusts,
there would be
another two souls
in this world
who would be
with this beautiful thing
in our hearts,
Just as You and I.
on rainy days.
but will never
trade her dad’s lap
She-the chic high-schooler
who loves mini-skirts,
she’ll never forget her first kiss;
and, the joy and thrill of her first date.
She–the selfless Fiancée
who would give up
to wear his ring,
come what may.
She-whose eyes mirror
her yearning soul;
Her smiles are
so crystal clear
and could melt
the toughest heart
to hold her dear.
She gave up her life
to carry his child
and bring to life–
She carried you
in her womb;
She fed you
with her blood;
She sang you
for so many nights.
So love her—
what she is,
she always carry
the gift of life.
Lyrics, Sentiments and Me,
in celebration of my humble blog’s
First Year Anniversary,
I would like to thank the following
for their invaluable contributions
to the World Wide Web,
and for their kindness shared to the author–
thank you ladies!
For your beautiful hearts
mahalo to you all!
And more power!
Happy blogging everybody!
to blog and write passionately;
to blog and denounce
and crusade against cyber crimes
and cyber bullying;
to blog and win
and cherish friends,
but not to gain popularity
to blog and promote
and foster goodwill in the blogosphere,
but never to submit myself to cults~-
who gang and harass to be worshipped;
I am a blogger,
and I pledge
to let my creativity flow like a river-;
to strive and create
yet compassionate world–
For the true greatness of a man,
lies in compassion.
For being compassionate,
is being divine,
and that’s the only way
we can bring heaven on earth.
For the greatest men on earth,
are the ones who unselfishly dared to change the world
by making a difference;
by sharing their passions;
and, by just being kind.
I am a blogger
and I pledge
to contribute this blog to mankind;
and, I will cherish this blog and blogging
till my body retires.
My heartfelt gratitude for your kind support
that made Lyrics, Sentiments and Me’s One Year Anniversary possible–
thanks to you all, and more power to your blogs!
I am blogging, not because I belong to a cult,
that I need the cult’s validation every time I write.
I am blogging to share my heart and my passion,
and to enrich the World Wide Web;
to make the Internet humane;
to ensure that we, bloggers,
are still above
the technologies we created.
For though technologies,
have the brains bigger than ours,
they don’t have
the hearts that we have;
that they are incapable of,
of what we
are so capable of:
and that sets us
apart and above
apart and above
all living and non-living things.
So, we must
use and treat technologies
to ease and enrich our lives,
to harm anyone
in any ways–
and that my friend,
is responsible blogging.
Lyrics Sentiments and Me is celebrating my humble blog’s one year anniversary. Although I am happy, but at the same time, I am sentimental knowing that this would never be possible without the kindness of the beautiful souls who made this happen.
I am also sentimental for the challenges in blogging as well. But regardless how challenging it could be, at the end of a bad day, I always reconcile my sentiments to the reality: I love writing and blogging, just as much as I love the companies of the kindest people here at WordPress. And I really thank the Almighty for all of you, finest people of the World Wide Web, you, my WordPress friends–for you touched my life in such special ways that even down the road, when my pen and I won’t be able to scribble anymore, I will cherish you and this passion for the rest of my life.
So, to you, my dearest friends, thank you for your kind support and appreciation–my biggest and warmest mahalo for everything! May God bless you all, and more power to your blogs!
Aloha = )
The rocky road
that delights my day
when I am blue–
The rhythm and booze
that calms the anxious me
when things are not so cool–
is sweeter than apple;
is richer than chocolate;
is brighter than the stars;
is warmer than the rays of sun–
the heavenly indulgence of my body. . .
the core capillary of my heart. . .
the grand symphony of my soul
The very essence
of a woman,
is to carry life
in her womb,
And to be
In the arms
of a man
love and cherish her
as his priceless
to bring out
the best woman
to embrace her
not just as a lover,
but as his soul-mate
and lifetime partner–
to hold her hand
look into her eyes
“You complete me.”
