Are you deaf?

I have listened to the voices of the deprived, I have seen them suffered and I have seen them died because of misery. Yet I have not done anything to lend a hand for them. Farmers, laborers, professionals and small entrepreneurs all these individuals belong to a society ruled by the greediness of the few. They built a nation full of hopeless dreams; they made every single brown-blood worked like a carabao on industries owned by foreign bloods. What do our fellow Filipinos get from its promises? Nothing. They exploited everything, from the deepest minerals of the earth up to the peak of the tallest tree in the forest; they will consume it without much ado.

I have asked myself, why do our government allow such misery for its people? Can’t it hear the cries of the oppressed natives in the mountains? I wonder if they ever listened to them at all. They accept investments, they build industries, they build roads, they supply the big companies’ needs but they never did it for the people living in those affected areas; as if those people never exist in there, in fact the natives whom the real owners of the land were the ones being sent away; being rubbed of lands by the government just to give way to the foreign insects.

In the beginning, the government never intended to help the poor, they were there to save their souls, to keep their businesses, to keep the lands that were not theirs, to keep on making laws that are beneficial to them, and they keep on inviting investors so they too can gain from it. All these are just for them and nothing for the poor. Though they can get jobs from the industries they put up, they paid the workers too but at the end of the day, one could still say that the workers have been deprived of their basic rights.

When can this end? When can people understand and see the real face of the government? How long will they allow the government to blind their eyes, illuminating the false image of developing country?  The Philippines is rich with resources it can provide the food of every Filipino in the table. But where are these resources went? Where are the ideal 3 meals a day for every individual? It all went all over the world, they made high-end products but they let the Filipinos get the “class c” resources.

Calling for change is a big step for us. Calling for the officials to help us would be a risk for us. Some people on the Left’s wanted change; people on the right will do any dirty jobs just to be on top. If the officials will continue oppressing the basic rights of the Filipinos, what will happen to them? I know the government knows the answer of this, they know everything that they twisted immoral things into righteousness.

Now is the time to open our eyes, and see who the real culprits are. Let us not allow anymore that they will mute us from our grievances. Know your rights. I have known mine, so I write this.

A Travel

Travel, what appears in your mind the first time you heard this word? Going somewhere serene? or going somewhere where there is fun and entertainment? Are you the person found in the inside or the outside? By this I mean, an enlightened person and the worldly person.

I admit the first time I heard this word I thought of going somewhere fun and entertainment. I was the the outside or the worldly person (as I may call it). I haven’t found the true meaning of Travel yet, I still see it as a destination where it would create a memory to my life. I see it all in a literal way. That’s me, a very literal person.

Until  have made a decision in my life, after I have fought for this choice, and after I have faced the journey itself, I realized that I have slowly made a little travel towards enlightenment. I have traveled towards the place that gradually and sometime unconsciously changed my life. I wouldn’t brag on this because it would only tell me negative feed backs, but I have to express what I have felt right now, what I have experienced together with my new-found friends; they are nothing but extraordinary people that would do anything to pull you up and not the other way around. So blessed with these people, so blessed with their desire to share, care and dare just for my sake.

I may have taken them for granted in the first meeting, but I told my self that this travel will not be the same as my old travels without knowing where to go. This is the first time that I know where I stand in the society and to myself. I felt important and special in this place and I intend to stay here for a longer time. Though I still have to go to Batanes and live there.

This is the journey that will create a big impact to myself and to the society. This is the one that I will carry with me and present to my family, that what I have chosen has done a great job in my life. This is the change that the society needs, the change that everyone seeks; a travel that has a destination.

And, they call her Jo!

Life is never unfair!

She’s a child that needs love,, but she was denied. She’s a girl that asked for attention but she was neglected. She’s a woman that had had loved but she was cheated. I think life for her is unfair, but she said it’s never unfair!

The idea of this perception from a woman who fought life like an endless battle is to tell us that whatever life throw upon us, we should never give up trying.

Being with her every time she talks about her life, makes me want to protect her even more. She’s a good friend of mine though we’ve known each other for only a few months but I can tell she’s a real person. She expresses her thought honestly, she reveals part of her sad and happy life. She’s not afraid to tell everyone who she really is. She would even shout it out loud to so everyone could hear.

I like her for that, she taught me how to be brave, how to stand on my own feet and on how to work hard in my studies. She inspires me, which  made me said when she said she’s uninspired. It’s so ironic to hear when a person inspires others but he/she can’t even find a good motivation for themselves. I just hope that the flame she showed me when she talks about her survival from pain and sufferings would flame up and motivate her. Losing out of hope at this point of time is critical.

I know she will regain her poise of fighting back the problems. Life is never unfair as she said. Life is full of possibilities, we only need to look closely for it. Bring back the fire in you and be a light to all of us!

Mothers, aren’t they the most wonderful people on earth?

 

I don’t want to be boring here talking about sentimental things about mothers but I guess I have to give them the credit of being  superheroes in real life.

 

Now, let us see what makes them a Super-Mom:

 

 

Giver – well, we all know that they gave us life even when we get old they still provide us everything just to live.

Friend – Yes, that’s right, they are your most loyal and faithful friend. Whatever you do they are always there to listen, scold you, advice, guide and everything. Oh, let’s not forget they are our first playmate. Sometimes they could also be your enemy, if you don’t follow their rules!

Teacher – Aaah, Baah, Maah, alright those were the words they usually say and we imitate them! aren’t they good teachers? hehe. Our first teacher tries so hard that even though they dislike mathematics they still taught us the basic addition and subtraction.

Maid – now, now, let’s all admit that they are our maid in the house; they clean the house, wash our clothes, cook our meals and Oh my God, they are also our carpenter from fixing the chair up to making a cabinet – well, I saw that once from a  neighbor mom 🙂

Mom and Dad in one body(?) – Single parents are like this, or whose husbands are working far away from home that sometimes are not coming back, oops! anyways mom’s managed to divide their roles both as a mother and a father. They would always say that they are the most flexible people on earth because what a man can do they’ll do it much better! ( I’m a pro Mom here! )

I don’t want to be an emotional jerk here, but I think I’m going to cry now T_T I haven’t been a good daughter to my mom, I tried to be one though.  It’s never too late to say Happy Mother’s Day because it should be everyday always.

 

 

 

A Dramatic Change, So I Say!

I haven’t written anything since my schedule at school got clunked up, though there were busy days and chaotic life in there my mind was still at my blog; I was thinking, how’s it in there? did someone view in my blog already?would my schedule in the real world affect my skill in writing? Those questions just pop-up in my mind.

 

There are lot’s of things I wanted to share here, the things that I consider are life changing events. They are the people whom I met at school that I will surely treasure in my life, there were activities that completed the other half of me, there was a time that I have to face the crowd at smile at them, there were days that I have to deal with issues and for it – even if I have to make the opposite look good or bad – and there were moments that I need to decide something for myself.

 

All the things that happened during the first semester of school was totally different from the person I was before. It was all first time, and I would proudly say that I have achieved the dreams that what I thought was only illusions and blurry images in my mind. I felt satisfied with that achievement, I felt whole and worthy.

 

Changing location for me was something I thought I would never survived, but here I am almost out in the cocoon. I always wanted to be a butterfly because of its lively colors, it flies freely from one flower to another and spreading the pollens to the earth. A changed in the environment made me become a changed person, it may not be a big change but my cocoon is slowly breaking.

 

With all these overwhelming changes in my life, the craving for writing still hasn’t changed.

A New Life

This is just a short story of what happened to my life after our prayer meeting. I’m not a religious person but I am proud to be a daughter of God, and I am a believer of Jesus Christ.

A search

I have been searching for peace in my heart, I have been searching for happiness because I’m not satisfied with this short pleasures, I’m not contented with all these desires. I want to discover my new self.

During these times I felt so heavy, as if I wanted something or someone that would help me lift all these troubles inside. God have seen all these struggles all these discomforts because He sent someone.
Eureka!

Because I constantly tell my friend that I want a new place that will make me feel refreshed and that I also have asked it to the Lord, I have found the answer the right place for me. In God’s place I am alive, In God’s love I have life and in God’s hands I am saved.

God is good, all the time. Yes, He showed me the right track once again and I hope that I will continue being like this. I will continue searching for happiness and share this to everyone.
