Along the way,
Not everyone will stay
The path may blur
But the destination is sure.
The pace may slow down,
But you’re never left alone.
Rain or shine,
You said joy is mine.
Even the darkest pit
Brightens when you’re in it.
Your promises, Lord
Is my hope and my guide.
What if the world is full of chocolate?
Well, everyone must celebrate!
What if the world is full of banana pie?
Will we really be satisfied?
I once asked God, why aren’t this world,
Filled with all kinds of comfort food.
He replied, “I didn’t because I love you!
Darling, comfort isn’t all you need.”
Well, that wasn’t I expected.
“There’s more to that” he continued,
“You need strength that comes from above.
You need to grow and mature, grow in love!”
Why do we run after those things,
Those habits that are temporal and perishing?
When we can drink from the Fountain of Life
That never runs out, never runs dry.
What do you do when your system is awake but you need to sleep because you need to rush to an outing at 6 o’clock in the morning? Write.
I used to stay outside my grandma’s store,
Listening to the coconut trees as if they’re whispering,
Staring at the tiny billion stars as if showing something,
Sitting beside my friends who walked all the way here,
Even they could see the same scene at home.
Why does it feel good to talk at this time?
To talk about life, it’s greatest pain and joy.
Why is it easier to talk some serious things?
Matters that seemed to be as deep as the ocean.
You could drown in the violent waves of emotion!
Yes, you might. Or had been drowned.
Maybe it’s because of the moon!
He might have pulled you with gravity.
Wind, who pushed you gently off the shore.
Relax, you might have overreact.
Beneficial or fatal, you might want to be cautious!
Instead of testing the waters, why not talk to the Trusted.
Stop the gossiping or the getting-to-know-you gaming.
Shake off that overthinking and over-worrying,
But hand it over to God. Talk to Him.
It’s as easy as pie!
No mathematical formula needed.
You don’t need to fear the raging ocean.
Cause at one command He can calm that storm!
He loves you, listens to you and answers.
Tila napapadalas ang iyong pagdalaw saking panaginip.
Bakit ngayon pa, ngayong araw ng pagsusulit?
Bakit ngayon lang, kung kailan wala ka na saking isip?
Sa iyong muling pagbisita, ayoko ko nang matulog ulit.
I knew it!!! I’ll be able to use this again. Rereading this reminds me of the time I was first encouraged to perform in front of the whole campus. I am forever thankful to ma’am Carmen Salvador who believed in me and helped me develop the confidence and skills I never thought I possess (Sumayaw, umarte, magsalita sa maraming tao, magdeclame, mag-aral ng mabuti at kumanta ng “I want to spend my lifetime loving you” para sa drama na ito). I can’t wait to see you this Christmas and tell you everything that happened Indeed, a teacher affects eternity.
