Sometimes Asking The Right Question is the Answer

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?

If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?

How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?

Why are you, you?

Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?

Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first?

If not now, then when?

If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?

Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?

When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?

What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?

Keep Going

keep going

I wish I could go to the previous,

When everything’s oblivious,

And the world isn’t vicious.

When you can always be frivolous.

 

I wish life has it easy,

Even though sometimes it gets messy.

In a world full of melancholy,

You still have to be jolly.

 

Cause when it rains, it pours.

And you just have to sashay and sway.

Because every raindrops can hide the teardrops.

And it clears the sleaze of things that have elapsed.

 

In life, you always have to be strong,

Even when everything’s going wrong.

Because life goes on.

And you always have to move on.

 

Cheer up little one,

You’re not the only one.

Everyone’s struggling and they just keep on fighting.

Keep on believing, keep striving and loving.

Cause you’re not designed for failing.

 

Love Isn’t Enough For You To Stay

Sometimes you just can’t take it anymore,

And all you want to do is turn away.

Sometimes, people will ask you to stay, 

Even when they’re the one who pushed you to go away.

One day, you just wake up,

And realize you’ve had enough,

Cause love isn’t always enough,

For you to overlook the gaffe.

Cause everything’s changing,
And the world keeps on turning.

And it’s sad to realize that things change in just a glimpse,

And people change without a hitch.

 Sometimes love fades, but the memories will stay.

And sometimes, people have to part their ways,

And even though their love still stays,

The pain will always be there if you won’t go away,

Cause sometimes, love isn’t enough for you to stay.

 

 

 

 

Numb

numb

People say I’m numb,

But what have made me numb?

It was when my heart keeps on hurting,

And the wound keeps on bleeding.

 

It was when people treat me like a dumb,

And I felt like life’s not worth a damn.

It was when the pain was excruciating,

And I can’t keep myself from crying.

 

And so today,

When someone tries to hurt me in anyway,

My heart has already been broken anyway,

It doesn’t matter what they say.

 

When it gets excruciatingly painful,

And everything seems so shameful.

That’s when the heart gets numb.

But it’s never dumb.

 

God’s Greatness

great

Though I couldn’t fathom,

In His heart I have a home.

He is always with me,

Wherever I will be.

 

Although my heart is flimsy,

His love for me is sturdy.

Trials and pain that happened to me,

Are all part of His plan for me.

 

 

His love is so great,

That I always ruminate.

For when I turn my back on Him,

His love for me has never dimmed.

 

Though I am not worthy,

On the cross He died for me.

How great is Your love,

How great is Your mercy.

 

You loved me in my darkest,

And even in my weakest.

You loved me when I questioned Your competence,

And even Your existence.

 

How great is Your love,

How great are You God.

You are always faithful,

Even when I’m doubtful.

 

Thank You for forgiveness,

Thank You for Your kindness.

Thank You for Your faithfulness,

And for Your saving grace.

 

 

 

 

 

If You Have One More Day

one more day

If you have one more day to live,

I will have more time to give.

If you have one more day to smile,

I will make everything worth while.

 

If you have one more day on earth,

I’ll make sure that you’re always heard.

If you have one more day to breathe,

I will always show a love that’s great.

 

If you have one more day to wish,

I will grant them all with a kiss.

If you have one more day to prick up ears,

I will tell you how much I want you here.

 

 

If you have one more day to live,

I will show all the love that I can give.

These are the things that I should say…

If you have one more day.

 

 

 

What if?

what if

Earlier, one of my colleague asked me. “Do you have regrets? Do you have What ifs?” and then I suddenly thought, what if I didn’t fall in love? I might have stayed focused in reaching for my dreams. Maybe, I have already reached my dreams in traveling the world. I would have been working on a cruise ship now together with my former classmates.

But what if all of those heartaches and pain didn’t happen to me? I would still be that little girl who’s afraid to stand up for herself. I would still be that little girl who would do the things that the people around me want me to do even though I don’t really like it.

What if I don’t have a child? What if I am still single and free? I would still be the person who’s lost and doesn’t know where I am heading to.

I did question everything. Why everything has to happen all at once, but then, I learned and understood that God won’t put me in a situation without a purpose. All those pain, trials and mistakes have to happen so that He can fulfill His plan for me.

I don’t have regrets. The only regret that I have is the pain that I have inflicted to my family when I didn’t turn out the way they expected me to be. The only regret that I will have in my life right now, is if I carry on reaching for my dreams alone and neglect the chance to watch my child learn and grow.

The only regret I’ll have is giving up just because of one painful past. The only regret that I’ll have is wasting so much of my time caring too much about the people’s perception and opinion about me.

If I have tasted the most delicious cake in the world and the people around me would ask me to stop eating it because it’s not delicious, I’d still eat it. I won’t care about what they say because I love what I’m doing.

They said, “The winner takes it all.” I believe it’s true. They take everything including disappointments and setbacks.

I know, it’s not that easy and I am still learning. I am getting there. I am learning each and every time I experience judgments.

Life is never easy. It’s not always rainbows and butterflies. And I believe that’s how God designed it to be. He made it that way so that we’ll be able to appreciate the eternal happiness that awaits us when we leave this earth.
