Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today


How many people die in one day? Every man dies in some point in time, but do you think that every man really lives?

Often times, we go through life leaving the little things unnoticed. The smell of our mother’s hair, the color of her eyes, your little brother’s favorite food perhaps? Do we really need a telescope to see the little details that God has carved into our lives? Even appreciating and making the most of these things can make us see the true wonder of life which is life itself.

We who have more than enough senses to see, hear, touch, smell and taste, take life for granted. There is more to Life than just going through it and just dying without getting to actually see the world. Most of us spend our lives as if we had another in the bank. When will we realize then that were better off being blind, deaf, mute and etc? Anyways, I don’t think it’ll change much, the way we are spending our life now. God created the world and humankind, with that, he created the 5 senses for us to truly see the beauty that God created. Use your senses; use your health, even to the point of wearing it out. That is what it is for. Spend all you have before you die. Live everyday as if it were your last…and some day you’ll be right.

Often times, I see people who just mope around doing nothing and feeling sorry for themselves. I understand that everyone may have a bitter past. But God has given us a gift, and it is called the present. I admit I have memories. And for a while, I have stopped living because of this. Until I realized, I have a big future ahead of me. I asked myself, is this the way I want to spend my life until I’m old enough to die? Yes, I have bitter memories, but only a fool stores his past in the future. Old times never come back and I know it is just as well. For what comes back is a new morning every day in the year, and that is better. Be happy while you live. Live! Don’t worry; you’ll have plenty of time to be dead.

PUPPY LOVED AND LOST

BOGOY stands by us in prosperity and in poverty, in health and sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground where the heavy rains pour and the cold winds blow. He guards our sleep as if we were a royal family. Tonight, as I was watching a much-awaited episode of my favorite series, my mama called me from outside. I couldn’t hear much of what she said except the word “Dead” she repeated it like 3 times. I went out, and found our bestfriend, Courageous sentinel, and loyal dog lying on the earth, lifeless. Bogoy, Has been with our family for as long as I can remember, he’s been with us since he was still a little frisky pup. He would run around our house and annoy most of us, but we adored him. He and my kuya will sleep together at night, and my kuya will complain of bogoy being loud. But we lived with it. When he was too big to fit in our house, we put him outside. But from time to time, he would wait for the perfect chance to run inside our house and cause havoc. Bogoy was a good protector, whenever there’d be strangers nearby, he would yowl endlessly and noisily even when people would just pass by. Yes that was displeasing and keeping him quiet was hard work. There was this one time when my kuya fastened bogoy’s mouth with a scotch tape. That was the quietest he has ever been. But when we took the scotch tape off, a huge circular white marked formed around his mouth. That became his identity ever since. When we still didn’t have bogoy around, our slippers and shoes would easily be stolen. But when he was there to guard the house, no slippers and shoes would be lost, instead, they would be tattered and destroyed (he nibbles and bites them himself). He is always hungry, when mama and I go out to feed him, we literally have to throw things at him just so we can place the food in his container. Patience wasn’t in his vocabulary. Three days ago, we noticed bogoy looking weak and silent. He wasn’t as playful as he usually is. He would just go to a corner, and sit. When I opened our gate, he didn’t even try to run out and escape like he usually does. Mama said maybe he was about to die. We kept on giving him food. But he wouldn’t eat anything at all. It wasn’t until this afternoon I sat beside him, stroking him, did I realize he was really weak and sick. Tears swelled up my eyes as I was afraid we’d lose him. He looked at me once…I kept on stroking his head. I saw fear in his eyes. It was the look in his eyes that made cry. A few hours later, Mama proclaimed him dead. Kuya arrived home by that time already. We dug up a hole, I know we couldn’t accept the fact that our beloved and loyal dog has passed away. As I was digging up a hole I pushed myself not to cry. instead, I dug forcefully, letting it out on the earth that shall soon house the remains of bogoy. You have served us well beloved friend.your howls will remain in the memories of your nights. Your protection embraces us like an invisible blanket and will forever remain as long as we live. You will never be forgotten for you are loved. No insanely expensive breed of dogs can ever ever replace you. We love you very much doggy and I know you loved us too.

I write poems too :)

Title: A PRISONER’S LAMENT
Date : November 23, 2009
Dear life of the midnight sun
Laughing stalk of the endless dawn
Gasping for life, breathing in death
let this go, let us weep, till the dying in my face breathes.
I feel you tapping from my very soul
Free my spirit, free of love, free of doom
Till the dark sith steps out of this,
Sing to my soul, Free my spirit
Dear freedom you are doomed
Bute leave me hope do not subside.
Distance roam and the darkness abide
Free the soul that screams for life
See the heartache, feel the pain
Good gracious tears have fallen in my dreams
Still alive, dont long to die
Till the dawn breaks, free my gray dripped spirit.
To the twilight dawn, free the moonlit hour
Deem for freedom, long for death
The only way the Living live

Hear the stars they sing for thee,
Hear them if you please “I Want to Break free”

Ode to Christ

Title: Ode to Christ

Date: November 23,2009

Sing for love deem for life
See the stars they long for christ
Jesus our Lord who saves our race
Live for him till the dawning grace
Through the moonlit dim we see
the love that rays from heavensky
longing for almighty, deem to fly
Seek his face oH  Dear Lord Jesus Christ
Do our love keep our faith
Command this life to do your will
The truth the way the light
Deem for Our dear Lord Jesus Christ

Title: (i have no idea yet)

Date: forgotten

Trapped wanderer. In the fields of doom

Looking for a way out never seing the light.

Not knowing where to go and who to call

Hearing a faint cry from afar, hoping it is help to come.

You suffered in pain, got lost in agony.

Prying the walls thin with your cries to heaven.

In the valley of death you fell astray

With anguish in your heart, compounded with distrust and doubt.

No hesitations were required. But own a glass full

With distrust in the lord your suffering prolonged

Oh you who have little faith! Should not question

Should not weep should not have endured

But he who cant help but run to his child

He who cant help but forgive and love again

He who cant suffer more than seeing a child fall

You are saved oh you who have little faith

Like a sheep lost astray

A sheep held tighly to his chest

A sheep whom he weeps over with love and gratitude

Oh happy is the heart held close to his.

Unaware of this gracious saviour

A blurry face in the dark

A faint cry from afar

He has come to save you from anguish

Rejoice you thirsty drifter.you are saved as you are loved

Only god saves. You see him run to you holding you tightly in his arms

lifting your face and wiping your tears. “child, I love you always. ”

Title: DYING INSIDE
Date: May 13,2010
Pain in my soul,Tears in my eyes
a hole in my heart, I’m dying inside
I’ll  live through tomorrow if i make it today
Dying from the sins caused by the cliche
Dying from the pain felt from the cries
The truth i know, I’m dying inside.
I will learn, I will live
so truth be told what hope can bring.
Though one thing is here and in my heart

im dying inside and im falling apart.
