Farewell





Ignited by the voice of braveness
and the astute vision
of a strong will
to build
a
nation
tethered by
robust colonial past
calls the rarest breed of a man.

Though history may be kind
the memory of men will entwined
to the result of battle cry
only few have the chance to try

Engrave in the Pantheon of our time
we will never see a storied saint on his prime
but another mortal in quest of identity
not to the realm of his own humanity
but to the greatest good
of asserting fatherhood
and firm to his station
in raising a nation.

Farewell
farewell.

 Summons to Nations

A call to peace
and for all the sovereign nations or at war
the road was endless
but only few numbered souls
walked the balancing act
for the freedom sound
over the belfry of common sense.

The selfless act
so seldom seen,
will not perish to seed the land
blasphemed in ages to rest in our hands
so that inequality may burned
to fertile all our sons
cleansing sinful forbearance.

SMS from the heart Part 1

“everything u’v done will become someels’s  memeory. D person might 4get d exact wordz u said but no way 2 make dem 4 get d way u made dem feel. “Tnx sa msge Sir


GOD hears what is not spoken and
 Understand what is not explained.. Fo HIS love doesn’t work n thelips nor n the mind bu in the heart!                                                                

There are times when HEAVEN seems to be silent in our prayers, GOD is just making it QUIET for us to hear the RUSHING SOUND of His “Abundant Grace”

Little things we give away come back as BLESSINGS some other day.Its GOD way  of giving rewards to those who share their unselfish heart!

I pray for a life that you deserve..
A life as good as urheart,
As bright as ur smile..
Enjoy life & stay in GOD’s grace..!

Whenever u feel weak, remember those who made u stronger..
And whenever u start to doubt yourself,
Remember those who believe in you..

If fate favors u 1 day &
U are asked wat u want 2b,
Dont  wish to be someone elz..
Bcoz I tell u.
U r wonderful the way you are..


Life is undying cycle . it is a battle of survival. If if you quit, then youre a loser. If you fail then stand up, if you keep on compaining about the miseries of your life, nothing will hapenn. God doesn’t throw stones that we cannot catch. Live with Him and everything will turn out ryt.

We choose how we see people. When we want to like someone, we can be so tolerant, when we want to be irritated by people we focus on their faults its not other people’s behavior that determines how we feel about them- it’s our attitude. =)

D SECRET of  Life is Prayer..
D Secret of Hapiness is Giving..
D Secret of LOVE is sacrifice..

Never without difficulties..
Never without hurtful moment,
But, Never without GOD 2 lean on =)

May ur morning b a garden gods 1derful blessings & ur lyf blosoms w/ every  dream dats close 2 yr heart god b w/ u in erverything u do gud am


Life is a continues journey, a constant challenge of choices. We get rich not by treasures in or banks, but by the LOVE we bank in our hearts

Jesus never fails, He knows ur desires HE’s looking at ur tears. Send this to 9 special people and tomorrow u’ll see a miracle- it works Dont keep this message unsent.

Dont look for things or people that aren’t there.
Just always be thankful  for what you have;
Because the more you look for something not with you. The more you find something wrong with what you have..
There are miracles everyday, if you look hard enough..

Ayet a Half Brother by Dad

Mga dapat gawin para hindi madisgrayas ng Paputok sa  Darating na Bagong Taon:
1. Wag kumuha ng naputukan na, bka mapikot ka;
2.Alisin agad kung malapit ng pumutok;
3. Kung naputukan na, dali-daling hugasan, baka madala pa sa hugas;
4. Wag magpaputok sa mataong lugas nakakahiya:
5. Magtanong kung ”safe” bago magpaputok. Kung ”safe” saka iputok.

Ma, I wish you a very Happy Birthday
Hope you'll have a great day today how ever grand or modest it will be
If I can have my say
I'll make it  memorable as I can for the reason I need not say
But alas, all I can do is pray
That God looks after you in His own way
As for your special day today
I wish in good health and spirit you'll stay
.as my mentor, adviser, true friend and a mother!

It is not what we eat but what we say that defiles us; Not what we gain but what we share that makes us rich: Not what we rwead but what  we remember that makes us learned; and NOT what we profess but what we practice that gives integrity. God Bless!

Legend of the Fly ( a wiki poem)

The Legend  of the Fly


The sky has clouds
the stream has ripples
A pelican has wings


My pad has icloud
my wife has nipples

a Republican with wings

U shout at clouds!
U have no nipples!?
The fat lady sings!

You make me laugh out loud
you play a game
upon your cloud
Now what's ur name?”

no view is so loud
for poet like Poe's riddles
(we love) like nasty stings

The Pelicans crowd
They fear the riddles
They like the lightened hymns

Hymns were the beginning
when the poet soul sang out
So close to nature
So earthed with doubt!

He see hymns on frog's croaking
even if an old man with gout
or deeds so immature
poems abound no doubt.
b>
Frogs rejoice in their heavenly soaking
The Gout man so screams, he shouts!
Find him the cure!
The cure of less doubt, perhaps less gout

A creature born without king
slimy things leaping on its hideout
its songs or our displeasure
Pelican's delight on its sumptuous take-out

“I am the pelican king”!
The frogs sing monsoons' delight
They croak in pelicans' measure, in their leisure
They sing for carnal pleasure, of monsoon nights.

Ugly fish eye frog
Inside a pelican prince
the dove of the wet sky mirror
cooing..wooing
with hiccups after dinner
Poor frog cursed swimmer!

(leaving his physical deformity)
the frog uttered his litany
"Ugly I maybe
but who has more fairy tale than thee
sky flyers you can be
finding life in the scree
is the real prince in me!"

Summer breaths, breeze
Resuscitate oh rivers life
Air of life
I'm upside down, blue and not breathing
floating in a pond of night
Am I the heron?
Did I dream of frogs?
Am I the frog!?
Did I dream of herons?
I float in the night
Blue

>In a Blue Blue heaven
The frog prepares to receive his wings
observes
the pelican down below
>How unerved she'll be
to see a flying frog!..With a halo!

"It's here you will stay"
the golden pond keeper says
The fish, the insects all that crawls
do not eat, your stomach would not even growl.
From here to eternity until one king is king
you will be just blissful to have this undertaking
sing all day and pray in between.

I will pray and sing to my hearts content
but what of the prince?
was it all pretence?
Out of life now....
>but still no wiser
no worries..you think..so did I
I have wings..I'm a flyer..
what more to desire?

What's there to ponder?
When I am no no longer
a part of it?
Quick..take back these wings..the halo..the ipad
return me I beg...miracle worker
to the day before blue day
when I croaked with meloncholia
through the damp night...
where I waited and longed
and, Yes! I admit pain-panged..
but felt SOMETHING!.... Alive...Alive....alive!

The great KING heard the off key
On the cloudy fairways before the keeper tweak his tee
"Why he detest his place on my kingdom?"
Did you not read him the choices for every martyrdom?
"I will" and swung easy with his custom made wood club
The Keeper avoided the hazard but not the shrub
Gave up the ball and keep the score
Proceeded to see the frog to tweet no more

And everyday
As thundered, rain
breezed the failing life
as hops and croaks
so little frogs arose
to blink
and watch
and stare
eye for eye for i .. am reborn as just a fly...
alive
alive
alive!


As the fly flew
He flew through, and through, the void
>Through times of dark
With flight there was the coming of light and longer days
Never ending was this flight
As light became the wings
And a Prince stood proud, brought upon such heaven's wings
And angelic wings lit up the void
A Prince was born to rule this way
To rule the land and sea and sky

But then darkness decided
that he must die…
Like an old good fly.
