You were my favorite breakfast, I yours.
We blended like bread and butter
Bacon and eggs, toast and jam…
Then one day, I’m sorry love. But I got fed up.
So I left you on the table
Until you turned into that bread, hard as rock.
The next morning, you found another plate.
A new twist of breakfast, more of your taste.
It’s wrong to miss you, my favorite one
It’s wrong to miss the sweet taste of your kiss
Hey, breakfast is done. I must leave for lunch.
But love, why leave crumbs on the floor?
Sa kaibigang di mapagkakatiwalaan
Sa syotang walang pakielam
Sa estrangherong kinaiinggitan
Sa magulang na di nagpaparamdam
Sa iniibig kong iba na ang mahal
Sa matrikulang di makatarungan
Sa maestrang walang pinagbibigyan
Sa kursong di ako nasisiyahan
Sa trabahong mabagal ang pera
Sa gobyernong di gumagawa ng paraan
Sa pulisyang di maaasahan
Sa batas na kulang sa lohika
Sa bansang bahagya ng umunlad
Sa nakaraang di makalimutan
Sa kasalukuyang puro problema
Sa kinabukasang walang kasiguraduhan
Sa planong malabo na
Sa pangarap na napakataas pa
Sa paghintay na walang kamatayan
Sa pag-iyak na walang napapala
Sa tadhanang di mapapalitan
Sa mundong mapanghusga
Sa lipunang mataas ang batayan
Sa mga tanong na walang kasagutan
Ang gusto ko ay matali
At mahigpit na puluputin
Ng seguridad na tayo ay may KARAPATAN
At kalayaan na pumili
Upang hindi na muli matali
Sa boses na hindi atin
Love is not a one-way ticket
Which will take you to that far end of the road
And not know your way back.
Love is a round trip.
It’s about you giving me a ride
Go somewhere new and unfamiliar
Then come home together;
To share smiles and stories
While we plan where to go next tomorrow.
Because love is about safety.
Me trusting you where you’ll take me
And you not letting me go,
Wherever we may be.
Someday, I will stop writing about you
Oh, but not today
‘Cause today, my thoughts are still about you
How I wish I can make them go away
It hurts to wake up with my side empty
You used to be there
You’d stare even when my hair’s messy
So now, though you’re gone, I won’t fix my hair
Then I go brush my teeth and wash my face
You used to hug me from behind
You’d whisper to me, “I love you always.”
I wash again to shake you off my mind
I see the stairs and remember that date
We used to race to the kitchen
You’d call me “Princess” and prepare my plate
Now I race with myself, eat if I can
I run back to my room and start to cry
Today I’ll write the saddest lines
Find all the synonyms of hate but why
Does my mind play back all our happy times
Someday I will stop writing about you
But I can’t tonight
I promise I want to, but I want you
And you want her, so again I will write
I wish I would run out of words to say
Like how you ran away
Pathetic but I chase you anyway
I don’t let you know, but I wish you’d stay
This will be my last stanza about you
My last tear for you
One final line and I’ll stop, I need to
Someday I will stop writing about you
Tonight I will stop writing about you
One last line and I will stop, I have to
But I still love you
Tomorrow I’ll write another poem or two
I’ve taken into account actual stories by people I’ve confronted. It scares me how there are just too many problems out there, too heavy to turn even the bravest into cowards. Read on, relate and note my last stanza. Happy Halloween, fellas.
Deeper than an ocean is a secret
Darker than night is a controversy
Scarier than ghosts or monsters is DEATH –
– of justice, truth, happiness and hope
You may be a smarty-pants or a kick out
Either way you’ll know what I’m talking about
Your academe or mine is, without a doubt,
A pool of cheats and liars, please hear me out.
Study, get high grades. Copy, get high grades.
When you fail, oh professors can be swayed
Debarred? Backers can easily be paid
Politics in schools exist in all shades
Judgments are all over the newspaper
It’s normal too, to get from a stranger
But when a friend judges, it’s way harsher
To know the one you trust – is a hater.
Love the opposite sex, they have something to say
Love the same sex, worse things are said to someone gay
Until facts and stories get twisted in a way
Your side is then unheard at the end of the day
You’re chased by many; your options are vast
But there is none you trust enough to last
Consecutively, you dump guys so fast
Why? It’s because you’re stuck in the past
You still think of him, but does he think of you?
He left you hanging with a question or two
So what? He’s gone! There is nothing you can do
Closures may mean not to have a closure too
When everything else fails, where would you run?
Your family’s of course choice number one
But what if your brother or sister’s gone?
Not dead, just turned against you – good as done…
You run out of options, you have tried them all
Eventually, there’s even no one to call
“Must not give up, must be as strong as the wall”
“Mom needs me,” there’s no more choice but to stand tall
But if you’ve been to the cemetery, you’ll realize
Many are already dead but you have a shot at life
For a great tomorrow: leave yesterday and LIVE TODAY
Justice, truth, happiness and hope dies, but don’t die with them
P.S If you feel alone, leave me a message. I promise you’re not.
Ang pagmamahal ay parang pulitika
Magpapakitang tao lang sa simula
Tatadtarin ka ng mga pangakong madrama
Pagkakatiwalaan mo ba siya? Tanga.
Binoto mo sa pag-aakalang tama
Pinili mo sa seguridad na siya na
Ang solusyon sa ‘yong sangkatutak na problema
Pagkakatiwalaan mo naman, tanga.
Nagkamali ng isa, pinatawad mo na.
Nagkamali muli, pinatawad mo pa?
Nalinlang ka sa “sorry” niyang nakakabingi na!
Pagkakatiwalaan mo ulit? Tanga.
Hanggang sa pera mo’y nalustay sa wala
Pati pag-iisip mo’y kinurakot niya
“Bakit nga ba siya ang pinili,” napaisip ka
Sabi nila “Vote Wisely”, di mo ginawa
Puso pinairal, sumugal… ‘Yan niloko ka.
Pinagkatiwalaan mo kasi, tanga.
I have noticed, many couples break up this month. How ironic because in other countries, June is the wedding month. Or maybe, each of the couple is simply complying to our country’s independence day.
Memories, there’s so much they hold. Once a relationship ends, who wouldn’t look back right? How you guys met, his old texts, his gifts, your unforgettable dates, your pictures together, those are just some of what’s painful to reminisce. Too much tears are rolling down that somehow, you can’t control them anymore. Maybe those memories are the ones stopping you from moving on, from accepting that “we” is now simply just “you” and “I”.
But no, this blog won’t be all about those drama and sht. I’m all about life, you know, how happy and worthwhile each day should be. That’s why I can’t bear seeing boys and girls devastated because of love. Yes I know we’re all too young for this, but that’s what makes it more hurtful. Younger people don’t deserve sorrow. We should be having fun all the time, celebrating our youth! That is why if you felt even just a little pain from reading the paragraph before this, then this blog is for you. I understand the pain you’re going through.
For the broken-hearted, here are some things to be optimistic about. Life’s too short for you to just spend it on crying every night. A few vitamins in life could help. Smile and read on.
1. Vitamin A – Accept, but never forget.
The memories both of you shared are too precious to be forgotten. We have learned a lot from these, that’s why. Yes you’ll feel ouchy every time you’ll remember the laughter you had experienced with him. But you must know that all of those things are already in the past. Accept that everything’s different now, that those can’t be brought back anymore. What matters now is how you’ll make new and even better memories in the present. It doesn’t have to be necessarily spent with a boyfriend or anything. You got your friends and family with you, don’t forget.
2. Vitamin B – Be busy all the time.
Of course, it’s not easy to keep your mind off those sweet moments with him. I bet, anywhere you look, everything simply reminds you of him right? Well the only solution there is to keep yourself busy. Since it’s already June, it would be easier because you’re in school everyday. Study hard. (I know most won’t consider this option. LOL) Or if you don’t feel like it, join organizations. Get involved everywhere you possibly could. But another more fun option is go out with your friends/family ALL the time. Be with different people. Go to different places. Just use most of your time doing other things. You know what happens when you’re alone and quiet at your room right?
3. Vitamin C – Take Care of yourself.
Many people, especially girls, forget to take care of themselves after the break up. Some would even want to try to get sick just to know if the ex would care. No ladies, that’s just so wrong. Now’s even the perfect time to pamper yourself, to become 10x more beautiful! Imagine, if you feel like rebelling through alcohol and partying, you’ll look even more haggard. And your ex’s ego would bloat because he’ll feel he’s such a big loss. Dress better, make friends, take care of yourself honey and bloom! He would surely regret of ever letting you go.
4. Vitamin D – Drop those sht and move on.
How will you appreciate today if you keep looking back on yesterday? Sweetie, don’t waste your day by crying or becoming preoccupied with bad thoughts. Who knows how much happiness you will be bringing to others if you would just smile, right? You’re actually doing yourself a favor too. Too much frowning would increase chances of aging. We wouldn’t want that to happen, would we? Plus, you might bump into the man who truly deserves you. One smile could mean a thousand more if he really (possibly) is the one.
5. Vitamin E – Everything you do, everything you are, offer to the Lord.
Nothing happens by chance. That’s one quote I’ve learned to never forget every time something unfavorable happens to me. Your life has been well-planned by God already. If your ex or other people had broken your trust, give it to no one but to Him alone. It’s true that sufferings make you stronger and mistakes make you wiser. Just think, these broken relationships are just challenges for you to finally learn how to appreciate life in other forms. When you’re broken hearted, you tend to forget that breakfast is served to you everyday, that your arms and feet are still in place and that you are given by God another breath of life each time you wake up. See? There are a lot of blessings to be thankful for! Forget your worries, everything has a solution for sure. Just let go, and let God.
There you have it! Just 5 vitamins to a healthy living! Don’t waste a day, because you’ll be asking a lot of them when you near death. But let’s not think about that now. And yeah, before I forget, just because your relationship ended, you would start to become bitter on love. Continue to love still, it’s one of Jesus’ two greatest commandments. But this time, focus on yourself first for you to learn how to love others more; but this time, with the wiser and better YOU.
