METAPHYSICAL


Love is

I have lived a life of sacrifices and pain.

I saw my heart crushed to pieces once, twice, thrice.

I don’t know what purpose will I gain

That love has not treated my heart that nice.

But then there is God who catches my heart

Picked up the pieces of the broken part

Lifted my chin to look up at the horizons

and show the answer to my confusions

Yes, love has battered my soul

But that doesn’t push me to give it up

It even taught me to fill up the hole

To build a bridge and fill the gap

Perfect love drives away fear

Genunine love keeps you near

True love drives away anger
Real Love endures forever.

It is not about how you felt

It is more on why you feel

It is not about what happened to you

It is more on why it happens to two.

It is not about the shame of fall.

It is more on the rise above all.

It is not about what we have not.

It is more on what we have got.

Now I know what lies beneath this confusion

That God has shown me no illusion

Love is a purposive pain

That Jesus showed to show my MAINE

Which is love

                        I

Which is love, which is not

Please tell me coz it means a lot

For this heart don’t know how

To deal with this feeling right now

 

                        II

I stumble in the dark

Searchin for a little spark

I am now so confused

I don’t know what I must refuse

I’ll seek for an answer

Even though it’ll cause forever

 

CHORUS

Oh please, could you tell me

What I must suppose to see

Give me one sign or more

Show what I’m looking for

I’ll wait for that moment

For, this I ask from above

Oh please tell me which is love

 

                 III

I don’t know how to tell

If it is love to which I dwell

For I thought that it is

But eventually it’s a miss

 

                 IV

What am I suppose to do

So I’ll know whom I’ll pursue

What I must understand

So I can firmly make a stand

I’ll search for an answer

Even though it’ll cost forever

PATAK NG ULAN SA SITIO BALANGABONG

Isang hiwaga aking natalos

Habong ang langit luha’y umaagos

Buong kagalaka’y naramdaman

Habang titig sa patak ng ulan

 

Tubig, buo sa iisang patak

Pagdampi sa lupa’y mawawatak

Sa isang patak ay isang lakas

Sa binagsakan ay nanghuhugas

 

Isang patak bagama’t maliit

Ginhawang dulot libo ang ulit

Pati kalupaa’y lumalambot

Maging puso puno ng sigalot

 

Isang patak hindi mapapansin

Animo’y isang butyl ng asin

Ngunit mula sa iisang patak

Ulang malakas dagat ang lawak

 

Akala mo’y walang magagawa

Ang isang patak duming mistula

Ngunit wika nga’y di sa malaki

Umuusbong gawa ng mabuti

 

Mula sa isang kristal ng tubig

Ang taglay nito’y buhay ang pintig

Hated sa lupa’y saganang yaman

Na dito ay sisibol ang laman

 

Kapag sa tubig naman ang bagsak

Mababatid na sa iisang patak

Nagmumula lumalaking bilog

Na sa palibot ay sinasabog

 

Gayundin naman sa Balangabong

Patak ng ulan dapat ang magsulong

Kung nais kamtan ginhawang mithi

Dapat muna’y mula sa sarili

 

Ang sarili bagama’t iisa

Lakas ay maaaring makahawa

Mag-isa man ay may lakas man din

Sa iba’y maaaring palawigin

 

Munting tao sa gitna ng lahat

Talento’y di mawari ang sukat

Tigasin man ang puso ng iba

Malay natin, lalambot din pala

 

Munting tao hindi man halata

Dahil siya’y karaniwan sa madla

Ngunit bagama’t siya’y ordinaryo

Kay niya, lahatang pagbabago

 

Akala mo walang pakinabang

Sapagka’t siyang nag-iisa lamang?

Ngunit di sukatan ang kalakhan

Upang lumikha ng kaibahan

 

Ang bawat isa ay mahalaga

Bawat isa’y apoy, nagbabaga

Kung tutuklasin ang tanging alab

Tiyak ang ginhawa ay tatalab

 

Kahit lumipas man ang maghapon

Kahit ano pa man ang panahon

Ningas ay patuloy pag-alabin

At lalo pa ito’y pagyamanin

 

Kaya’t Balangabong ito’y dinggin

Patak ng ulan dala’y habilin

Gumising na! harapin ang hamon

Nang di magsisi habang panahon

MARAMING SALAMAT SA BUKANG LIWAYWAY

 

Isang pagpapala ang aking nasaksihan

Habang ako’y patungo sa katimugan

Wagas na kasiyahan sa puso’y sumilay

Nang masaksihan ko ang bukang liwayway

 

Ang kalangitan habang habang nag-aagaw dilim

Ang karagata’y di mawari ang lalim

Ang araw nama’y unti-unting sumusungaw

Pinakikilala ang langit na bughaw

 

At sa kanyang pagbati sa bagong umaga

Ang hangin nama’y marahan ang buga

Ang dagat naman ay malumanay ang alon

At bulwak ng barko’y kanyang hinihilom

 

Ang kalupaan unti-unting ngumingiti

Napapawi na gabi ng dalamhati

Kabunduka’y nariyan na’t nagpapasikat

Kaluntiana’y kanyang sinisiwalat

 

Ang lakas ng araw sa pisngi’y dumadampi

Tila nagsasabi sa iyo ako’y kampi

Nabibigay lakas sa umaga ng pag-asa

Pinasisiya mundong sadlak sa dusa

 

At habang kami’y lulan sa patutunguhan

Kaba’t takot nahahawi’t napaparam

Handa nang harapin anuman ang pagsubok

Handa nang talusin ang pakikihamok

 

Ako’y nagagalak at ito’y nasaksihan

Nagbigay ng buhay bago pa man lumisan

Salamat poon sa biyayang ibinigay

Maraming salamat sa bukang liwayway

 

 



Stand

Stand 

Stand as long as there is life

Stand against all the strife

Stand even if you have fears

Stand though there are grief and fears

Stand every time you fall

Stand against the toughest wall

Stand amidst the sharpest thorn

Stand when you are all forlorn

Stand above your agony

Stand against the raging sea

Stand and you will rise

Stand then all will turn out nice



Confusion

Confusion 

 

 

What is the reason behind this uncertainty?

Of the heart that treats you the best way it can

What could be the answer to my agony?

Of which my meek heart can no longer stand

 

The first eye to eye, you’re just a friend to me

For me it’s just fate that had brought you about

Because your presence was never meant to be

Mere chance is the bridge that kept us close all out

 

But now I know that it was truly for real

That love is sweeter the second time around

Yesterday, it’s a small thing, now a big deal

And I’m in the ravine of nowhere to bound

 

And from that dark and cold place of loneliness

You ignite the light that gives me warmth and joy

Never did I had this kind of happiness

Since, before this day, when I’m a little boy

 

Seeing you  in your infatuating smiles

Kept me out from all my troubles and fear

Though you’re far away from me a million miles

Your sweet and inspiring words had kept you near

 

Now I’m gonna be the prisoner of your charms

Detained in my own heart full of emptiness

But if you would let me hold you in my arms

Then I will know I had chosen the best

 

I know that someday somehow I’ll find the way

Of what really lies beneath this confusion

And if the stings of love arrives, come what may

As long as what I feel are not illusions

 

 



Consider others
April 28, 2006, 4:59 pm
Filed under: introspections

     What does it mean to consider others?  Sometimes we have the wrong notion of considering other people. Sometimes, we tend to think that to consider others  is to think what is best for other people.  We often think about what other people may have think or do. We often decide what could have been the best for other people. As a result, we fall at the “orientation to other people” But following such line of thinking does not consider other people at all.

    We tend to overlook the “orientation from other people.”  We neglect what could have been other people think best for themselves.  We neglect what they would actually think or do. We often decide without knowing what other people think are best for themselves.
