VISIONS OF DECEMBER

Leofina Jane Galleta
11/30/2007 6:30:50 PM


Brilliance of life now comes; you bring,
Cloak of hope draped in the heart, a shield;
Most precious gift; sweet heaven’s kiss;
Heartfelt wishes and good tidings.

Amidst the chaos, blessings’ abound
We need not slumber, but celebrate yuletide
Embrace of love, such sweet delight!
To fill each heart, to share, and bind.

Light of hope sways, on rainy evenings
Flickering, dancing; clothed with grace
Like a beacon lit, to lead the way
As the flock gather to kneel and pray.

Sweetest of music, carols and hymns
To fill the air as jingle bell rings
Children’s sweet voices on the choir singing
At dawn we seek; like those three kings.

Giggles and laughter, lots of joyful greetings
"Kiss and make up"; forgive misgivings
Let’s free our hearts from the bondage of fear;
Love, and more love; not hate to reign.

Heart, don’t despair, feel the spirit
Celebrate Life, rekindle that faith;
Hope comes to us, with much thanksgiving
Forever, the heavens will always be near.

New morn, it means a new beginning,
Such precious gift, great joys it brings
Chances, embraces; abound, never ending
Resides in the hearts; Love, over flowing.

DISYEMBRE

Iyabrasam ita,
Salemsem a mangrubrob temtem ti kararua
Mangbiag kadagiti ramut,
Rumusrusing, agsasabong nga arapaap.

Nupay angep,
Nangbalkot ti sumangbay ita nga agsapa;
Naruay met ti rimat,
Naiyarkos a namnama.

Iyaplaw ti salemsem,
Indayas ti linnaaw, talna’t pakinakem;
Bareng allawaten,
Umiso a gagem koma ti agtaeng.

Pasungadam latta,
Lawag, kinadayag a sumangbay ita;
Iyetnag ti langit kas sagut a naruay
Iti amin a parsua.

Iti idadateng,
Naruay nga agsapa, namsek ti namnama;
Ayat, talingengen, maiyarakup latta,
Sagut ti mannubot, lubong nga agdama.

NAMNAMA


Bay-am;
Bulusam ti ayat, isu’t manglapunos
Puso a malmalmes,
Gura, panagtuok.

Tarnaw;
Kinadalus koma’t umukuok,
Runawen ti langit
Kawar kinadangkok.

Bareng mawaknitan,
Kullaap panunot, isu’t naikumot
Imbati’t darikmat;
Simangbay a nangsuot.

Sungrudam ketdi,
Temtem a manglawag dalan ti balligi;
Mangparmek ti sipnget,
Iti lansad ti nakem, agar-ari pay laeng.

Wayawaya koma,
Isangbay dagiti nasalemsem nga agsapa
Mangpunas ti liday,
Panawen ti ayat, pammati, namnama.

COUNT DOWN...DAY ONE..

What can i give..

To myself...
I can give chances to make up for my short comings;

To my love ones...
I can give sincere love..it's all I have, after all;

To God..
my accomplishments as well as my failures today..

To the world...
SMILES, and a part of me through my thoughts and my pen..

Others matters..
Fun, it was great to spent playful moments with Jaynann, the lovely daughter of Manang Maricar.. that was just great, manangski, thanks for the wonderful time, :-)

12/1/2007 4:04:02 PM

bayyek! :-) long time no see, glad to see you're back, :-) thanks for your lines... and well, as to what you mentioned, thank you for the advise gayyem..

I post there with the hope that somehow the ctritics and readers with good intentions, willing to sharpen my pen, might try to edit my creations so that I would know what to improve..it happens that I am a slave of my pen, and most of the time, it rhymes, hehehe! I think I can never be a good fiction,short story writer.. I can't seem to write if I am not writing facts, or expressing my self through lines and/or rhymes.. I can't even be a good technical writer, wala akong tyaga to edit, har har har ! And well, I was trying to some innovation with the short story that I posted.

I want to write non-fiction stories in a short story style also, I just started innovating my essays..:-) I wish to re-write them and present them as short stories..Will work on them soonest...

Now, now bayyek.. you gave me an idea of WHAT I WOULD WANT for today.. :-)


If I would write a story, i want to do it with not much dialogues. I find it exciting as a reader to think while reading.. I would want the story to unfold in a manner that is being told by a story teller; the events being describe only, to give the reader some kind of imaginative exercise; and to let them have their own conclusion at the end.. I would want the reader of my fiction short stories to REFLECT as they finish reading my written stories.. I want them to be inspirational. :-)

That is why I love James Patterson's books.. they are mind-bogging to read. Its like playing a chess while reading because the twist are never predictable. Try reading his "cross series" and my all time favorite "Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas".. :-)





Leofina Jane Galleta
12/1/2007 4:07:07 PM

Manong Tito! good morning manong! and thank you for your super duper support!

Am glad you liked my new compositon, :-) I will try to work on it pay manong, its still too amateurish, hehehe!

Shriek! how are you? Nabayag ka met nga awan gayyem? AM glad you are back, i missed your lines too!

Write more often man kadi aya, :-)

For me, everyday is Christmas day. Peace, love for mankind and joy abound in my heart all the time.

Malagip ko man daytoy a kanta idi ubbing kami pay no kasdiay nga balay-balayen mi ti maki-paskua. No awan idi ti ma-iyawat kadakami ah ket.........
"Balay ti munno-munnot
Paskua yo a naiimot
Umay ti makarurod
Ta pang-uren mi't sarrukod"

Naimbag a Paskua yo amin Apo!

with the article is golden. that's the true meaning.
hey thanks...you're behind the guy with x picture...keep trying you might catch that guy. you think so?

ONE MORE TRY


Let me look in those eyes
Tell me please, I must try;
Knocking beats rang aloud,
Must I listen; should I?

Feelings reign, occupied,
Fear and doubt; must I hide?
To allow this one time
One more try; please, can I?

Would it then be the sign?
To hold on; one more time
One more shot to the moon;
And, let Destiny come.

One more chance, maybe right
Try to gamble with Time;
If the sun will smile,
From slumber I’ll rise.

Hi to Everybody - to Monica, LJ, bayyek, Shriek, Jo & Vernie, Francis & Marielle, Ken dadduma pay nga sumangpet. adda koma saludsodek ken LJ ngem nakaturog pay la ita.

LJ, adda man naaramid kon nga DuaTa / agKantaTa ngem diak ammo ti pangikabelak nga silid mo diay Lyrics na (ti music na mabalin nga mabiuya idiay balayko wenno YouTube by searching for "ilocan18").

On second thought baka sobra metten ti contribution kon ket give the others also to post theirs. Makitak ket puro Ayat ti topic ti kan-kantak ket baka suspetsaen da nga laklakayanakon ket sumayet pay la nga agkamkamat iti ubbing! You know what I was doing was for Art's sake. I just wanted to have the real "feel" in my songs by oretending to be pasionately in Love with a Real Person.

Nagragsak ket ngatan; bagkak nga kinayawan

Agtengngan ti rabii. Natalnan ti aglawlaw iti kastoy nga oras. Adda met panawen iti ulimek uray iti na-ariangga a siudad.

Inlukat ko ti tawa iti flat ko ket dagus nga immarakup ti nasalemsem nga angin. Inkidem ko iti immanges ti nauneg ket inpalawlaw ko ti panagkitak kadagiti bimmalitok nga atep dagiti balbalay ken pasdek. Makaited man ti pannakapnek ken talinaay iti kaungan ti kinangayed ti lubong nu kastoy a sellag. Kas man panangmatmatmat iti maysa nga obra maestra; maysa a naipinta a ladawan.

Naiturong ti imatang ko iti law-ang, ket nakaiinnisemak kadagiti kumidma-kidmat a kiray dagiti riniwniw a bitbituen. Nadalus ti tangatang a kas man nagpanawan dagiti ulep. Timpuar ti isem ko ket nabayag a pinerreng ko ti langit. Kas man adda batombalani ti kiray dagiti bitbituen ta kasla aglalo a tumarnaw ti rimat da gapu iti lawag nga iparparaman ti naslag a bulan. Ah, awan maka-artap ti ngayed ti nakaparsuan a nangdaripespes iti kaungak.

Ginaw-at ko ti gitarak, ket insanggir ko iti pasamano a nangipwestuak kadagiti throw pillows a mangsuporta iti likod ko. Apagapaman a kinalbit ko dagiti kwerdas a pangur-urayak iti inspirasyon a mamagkuti kadagiti ramramay ko a mangputar manen iti kanta. Nabayagen daydi naudi nga komposisyon ko. Pinasadaak iti mano a daras dagiti kwerdas. Inkidem ko nga inay-ayam dagiti malagip ko a pandag ngem kawaw ti maparnuay ko nga aweng. Nalabit, gapu daytoy kadagiti agsasallupang a banbanag nga agam-ampayag iti panunot ko.

Gapu ta awan mapanunot ko a pyesa, indissok ti gitara ket ginaw-at ko ti lapis ken legal pad iti side table. Diak man ammo ngem kaykayat ko nga amang ti agimaldit babaen iti manual a panagsurat ngem iti mangideretson iti laptop ko.

Nariknak iti apagapaman a salemsem nga insangbay ti sang-aw ti amian. Mangrugin ti salemsem a mangipasimudaag ti idadateng ti paskua. Mano laengen nga isisingising ken ilelennek ti init iti mpalabas ket sumangbay manen ti padpadaanan ti sangalubungan a selebrasyon. Paskua manen.

Iti panangibaw-ing ko iti panagkitak, nataldiapak ti maysa a surat a nakitak itay a nakaipit iti pinanid ti daan a diaryk. Ginaw-at ko daytoy manipud iti lamisaan iti sikigak.

My Dearest,

Yesterday, I just witnessed the death of my soul. The day started in a state of gloom. Things seemed to be turning upside down. Emotions that were trapped within us gained strength and volume. We didn’t know but something was slowly and silently gnawing inside us. We only had known it when it was about to burst, a threat, like a dam, of great intensity that’s about to be unleashed, fearsome and uncontrollable. And it did come upon us, flooding our lives with enormous pain and grief.

From its glorious state, our most treasured love disintegrated before my very eyes. The pain of knowing that everything I held so dear was slipping away from my grip was overwhelming. My soul moaned in sorrow, my heart flooded with overwhelming grief, and the spirit in me slowly died. Life faded away. How could I still be breathing when I felt that nothing in me is still alive? Could we conquer the inevitable? Would the future be kind and hopeful for us? Would it still be the same tomorrow when I wake up?

--> Next cell please...

I woke up and was immediately greeted with the haunting smile of an overpowering emptiness. It was the first day without you. It felt so scary because this was the start of many days ahead without me seeing you or hearing your voice. There would be no more short messages to make me smile, no more white tulips on Mondays, no more road trips while playing “pitik bulag”, no more poetry reading on rainy nights, no more silent moments to share. Maybe, this is what happens when one is used to the other being around for a time. A certain space was left open; empty. Everything seemed to be just passing; my eyes were open wide but not seeing anything.

The spirit of life seemed to have left me. My head, which felt like spinning in a circle without end, left me void of any feeling. It was like every fiber in me was numb from pain. Not minding, noticing, or even feeling that I am breathing and alive, because I actually don’t. My mind sees the logic, my brain accepts reasons, but my heart doesn’t. It felt like it shrank and was shredded, broken into pieces. Here I was, with my whole being so weak and numb and in a state of loss. How I wish my heart could just understand and accept the situation without the pain that was almost impossible to bear. But still, this heart continues to beat even if each moment felt like a forceful strike, a numbing blow that tortured my very soul. I know I must pass this way. I must endure and nurse the wound in order for me to restore that faith and hope in love. I simply need to.

Our love had been the center of my universe. Everything in me revolved around it. We had created an incomparable masterpiece when we shared our own unique colors to paint a magnificent canvass that is totally unique and rare. It was so beautiful, so special that there was nothing like it that existed, or so I thought. We were too perfect for each other, totally different in many ways but we shared the same passion in loving each other. We had a love that nurtured the other, inspiring and bringing out the best in us. We flourished in our own endeavors, blossomed with the love that we had for each other.

We were each other’s greatest fan. We evolved and became better individuals as we grew with each other’s presence. We taught each other the things we didn’t know, encouraged each other to overcome our fears, and we learned a great deal from confronting and pointing out areas of improvement in our ways and character. Suggesting instead of imposing, talking instead of sulking, brainstorming instead of assuming, reaching out instead of seeking attention, and we had bliss and happiness.

After more than three blissful years, we came face to face with an obstacle course. I thought we could survive it but the happiness and contentment of our blissful existence somehow didn’t prepare us to outwit the hurdles. We fell short of ammunition, namely, our inner strength to defeat the odds. The fighter and optimistic side of me hoped that we could keep our love alive, that we would reach the finish line in one piece. But I was wrong. The obstacle course had its own game plan, and we were hit at our most sensitive, fragile, vulnerable spots.

The blows were too much, almost sickening to the core. Our ammunition was spent so fast. That’s when I realized what we missed: a support team was neglected. We became too comfortable that we failed to notice that the world wouldn’t stop turning for us to preserve that blissful state and stay happy forever. It was simply not the way things go, it’s not the way this world operates. I realized that we should have evolved with time, adjusted more with our own growth....

<-- continuation..

Looking back, it was so apparent that harmony had left us. Our defenses had become so weak. The pain, jealousy, and fear of losing were almost unbearable. Our fortress of faith and hope came to the verge of collapsing. Our defenses drained out, almost to the last drop of tolerance. Despair, pain, frustrations and disappointments had become so painful to bear. Deep in my heart I wanted you with me all through out those rough times. I cried for help, calling your name, asking for you to lift me up, to rescue me from despair. When I saw that you weren’t there, an enormous feeling of abandonment and betrayal enveloped me that it overcame every effort to reason and understand. I thought I died right there and then.

During the height of our storm, we failed to communicate. We both ranted and talked at the same time about our own pains and struggles, and these didn’t accomplish anything except hurt each other more. None of us wanted to stop and be the listener first. That made me realize how strained our relationship had become. We both wanted to be understood; to be loved; to be taken care of. If only we had thought of reaching out. We failed because we didn’t fully understand each other through. As we became weak, the source of our strength got drained out.

Forgive me for I forgot to realize you were going through the same throes as I was. I failed to see the great obstacle between us, which kept us physically apart. I’ve forgotten that you were dealing with the blows as hard as I did. I’ve failed to consider your own pains, your own needs, and your own struggles. I didn’t think that somehow, you were crying for help, too. If we only tried to get our acts together--our hearts and mind to focus on one goal--if only we had realized that we could defeat and survive everything had we shared our pains and strength, if...

The world will continue turning, so with time. The scar in our being shall remain in us to remind us that life is not all roses and sunshine. What we had shall always be a bittersweet memory, but time would heal us. We would never forget, but the memory would tell us about the true colors of life, the reality that we are just a part of the universe, and that we have to submit to the Great One who oversees our lives. As we live our lives without each other, may we continue to grow and not lose what we gained while we were together. The scars in our hearts will always occupy a special space that exists only for us. So it goes without saying that you will always be a part of my existence.

As we close the book we had written together, may we remain in touch with the memory of the cycles and seasons that came our way. I want you to remember that I have loved you the deepest way I’ve known.
The storm had passed, taking away our most treasured possession: our love. We were left bruised, in pain. There’s not much left to repair and rebuild on. The best thing is for us to let each other go our own separate ways. We had seen the best and worst and although we tried to make something beautiful out of it, we failed.

Tomorrow shall be another day; it shall be a new one. A day that is totally different from today. I want it to be full of sunshine and promise. I maybe hurting but I have today to cry my heart out, to lament on what we’ve lost. I wish to empty my heart from all the sorrow and pain today so that when I wake up again tomorrow, my soul shall have a fresh start. And I wish you do the same.

With this, I bid goodbye, with a silent prayer that Life would be kind to both of us.

With all my heart, I remain...

McDonald's love story...

A little old couple walked slowly into a McDonald's in NY, USA ....on one cold winter evening.

They looked out of place amid the young families and young couples eating there that night.

Some of the customers looked admiringly at them. You could tell what the admirers were thinking:

'Look, there is a couple who has been through a lot together, probably for 60 years or more!'

The little old man walked up to the cash register, placed his order with no hesitation and then paid for their meal.

The couple took a table near the back wall and started taking food off of the tray.

There was one hamburger, one order of french fries and one drink.

The little old man unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half.

He placed one half in front of his wife.

Then he carefully counted out the french fries, divided them in two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink, and then his wife took a sip as the man began to eat his few bites.

Again, you could tell what people around the old couple were saying. - 'They were used to sharing everything.'

Then the crowd noticed that the little old lady still hadn't eaten a thing.

She just sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally sipped some of the drink.

A young man came over and begged them to let him buy them another meal.

The lady explained that no, they were used to sharing.

As the little old man finished eating and was wiping his face neatly with a napkin, the young man could stand it no longer and asked again.

After being politely refused again, he finally asked the little old lady, 'Ma'am, why aren't you eating. You said that you share everything.

What is it that you are waiting for?'

She answered,


'THE TEETH'

Hehehe... True LOVE...


Really kool…

Just want you to know that our whole family love your writings. Please keep posting your works. We didn't know that you have a blog here.

MY son came across your bloggers and liked your sensitive, sensible, and heart-warming manner of writing. My husband and I, together with my three teen-age kids love checking on all your sites. Keep it up.

I teach communication arts, and I must say that your talent in writing is pure. For me not all "writers" can write. There are some who think that they are already good writers when they write something, even if they write articles based on what they heard or read without any personal touch; the result is an article that is void of emotion but decorated with technicalities. The style may look impressive for the readers who could be easily impressed with "mastery of the english language" but the whole thing lacks profound meaning. These are not writers; these are reporters. Keep on writing, Ms. Galleta. Your style is the purity and honesty of your works. Aside from your poetic grace, you are a very good story teller.

The beauty of your face matches that of your heart, as it shows in your works.Your mother is a lucky woman.

And lastly, your song writing is excellent! It shows the pure talent that you have. You seem to be truly one of a kind. Stay beautiful and kind.

God bless.

ms. gAlleTta, may I ask the ff questions;


WhaT is your favorite floweR?

If I'll come to the Philippines to see you, would it be ok with you?

Do you believe in Love that keeps growing even without personal meeting yet?



Please listen to the songs " LAdy in REd and Wonderful Tonight.." I always think of you when I listen to those songs.

Hope to see you soon.

Here I am again, my Queen;

I have been reading your blog from the bottom page up to the poetry page up, i found out a few things.. would you clarify?

You are one woman of substance and strength who wanted your man to come to you like a Knight; who can stand at the side to be your guardian angel. WOULD YOU ALLOW ME TO BE YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL?

Your heart is the most romantic yet I've seen.. Mine is so dark and cold but I melt reading your words.. WILL YOU BE MY FIRE AND ICE, THE EARTH AND MY BREATH ROLLED INTO ONE?

You are fearless yet vulnerable... Strong-willed but a fragile thing..A tease yet a child, How could it be that everytime i close my eyes, I think of you as A FIRE THAT BURNS consuming my soul to greatest heights?

I DON'T WANNA WASTE MY TIME... CAN I CALL YOU SOMETIME?

I got your number @ the threads please don't hang up when I do..

Here I am again, my Queen;

I have been reading your blog from the bottom page, to the poetry page up there, i found out a few things.. would you clarify?

You are one woman of substance and strength who wanted your man to come to you like a Knight; but you seem to want a Knight who can stand at the side to be your guardian angel as you fight your own battles. WOULD YOU ALLOW ME TO BE YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL And your KNIGHT at the Same Time?

Your heart is the most romantic yet I've seen.. Mine is so dark and cold but I melt reading your words.. WILL YOU BE MY FIRE AND ICE, THE EARTH AND MY BREATH ROLLED INTO ONE?

You are fearless yet vulnerable... Strong-willed but a fragile thing..A tease, yet a child... How could it be, that everytime i close my eyes, I think of you as A FIRE THAT BURNS consuming my soul to greatest heights?

Something Personal

Allow me to share one of my most treasured "work of art"... something that I received from a total stranger with whom I had the gift of chance to interact..

I don't know the exact reason why I am sharing this very personal thing, but I feel like doing it... Maybe it is because of my euphoric state of being due to this newfound freedom from the bondage of illness that "tied my hands and imprisoned my spirit", or sort of, for the past six month. I am just thanful that my sickness was something that is curable.. and I am well..I am in a state of being that the world is all new; all beautiful and hopeful..I felt like sharing something that I deeply treasure... so, here it is...

" TRIBUTE"

[Quoted from the maker of the artwork: "Who I Want to Meet: I think I met the person already...I like to believe you'll be looking for my photos in the Gallery. But you will not find any if you look with your eyes open. These are mirrors of my mind. People I met at this web who has influenced and awakened my deepest thoughts. People who do not necessarily share the same feelings...but give me a completely new perspective on ways and things - looking at you and me and all around us. As you read on, I hope you find yourself in these pages...not literally perhaps...but...find a bit of yourself in these eyes.... and find loving yourself a little more...]

Hi, there RJ, it has been a long time but I feel the need to reply even though it has been long over due. In all honesty, I had the luxury of time to browse my account until I got to this part; I opened your profile, browse a little of it, then viola! There I find a very nice work of art dedicated to me, if I am not mistaken. It was a pleasant surprise; really, I am so very touched. You can read people like a book. Because you were able to grasp what we talked about in our exchange of messages way back 2005. :-) Sincerely, thank you.

People evolved with the time, RJ. Either one grows or otherwise with the world.

As for me, I had understood more why my fulfillment lies in service to others as the days passed on. It all goes down to PURPOSE, VALUE, WORTH and the likes... I am a rebel in disguise; with the ways and standards of the world that is; it is not about pride, but a challenge to be myself in the midst of the chaotic and sometimes pathetic ways of most people.

What I have, what I look like, how my mind works, how I view life... All these things are essentials that need to be pondered upon and to find a sense of balance. Moreover, it is true, that every aspect of me has its own reasons; I just needed to understand and know myself better. And I am so sure now that order for me to live life to the fullest, I would continue to be of service to other people. By being an advocate. But I tell you, there is more to it than what other people think it is. there are things that are not visible to the naked eye, as you said,:-)

So long, thanks for the :tribute",:-)

blessings!
Jane

It is for you...( note: its a present tense )...and I have been tardy of late even to look over my account too...quite a surprise that I opened it when you just sent a word...!!!..Strange...but no coincidence...I think so...

Jane, you still surprise me with your ways...heck, more like awed....and I revere every bit of it....and hope one day, I could be a mirror too...

when you are alone...think of how many of you this world needs..


Monday, 5 February, 2007 9:11 PM
Message: Hello RJ.

You may call me a sentimental person, but I put more value into things that has personal touch as compared to those expensively acquired. So, many thanks again. :-)

Still surprised? Don't be. View my ways in the aspect of individuality. It is just me, living my own life in my own ways, in my own plan, not patterned with anybody else's life. I just happen to have the guts to disregard ever thing else and freely live my life the way I want it. I am just lucky I was able to find myself earlier than other people do.

It is about conquering your own self, RJ. Accepting, but trying to enhance your weakness and limitations; appreciate and use your strength and gifts; and making sure that as you grow, as you gain more, as you become better, you will not ever lose yourself. As you conquer the world, you also need to take hold of yourself, your own identity, and continue knowing your own self as time pass on. :-)

Every night, I always look back to the day that passed, say my thanksgiving to everything and everybody that touched my life and made it richer than yesterday, not in material possession but in substance.

Your thoughts are profound; i hope you were able to influence people with your wisdom. Happiness? It is not something that is found as you search for it; for it is the reward, you get as you share yourself to the world. Believe me RJ; we are not just born for ourselves, but for the whole world.

So long, I wish you well. :-)

In His Glory,
LJ :-)

***********************************************************************

The world is made up of millions of crossroads. Of intertwined lives. At one time in our lives, we encounter people who are total strangers; we sometimes don't see them but they seem to know us; more than the boundaries that we allow ourselves to be known; sometimes, some would see beyond our physical selves, but our inner sanctuaries could be as transparent as spring water in a broad daylight.

Is it a blessing..? Is it a curse...? We cannot tell. But it shows that we can never hide who we are; what we are... we cannot stay hidden beyond the facade we create from the scrutiny of the whole wide world....Sharing a piece of an encounter with an "angel" who let me pass through with its eagle eye...

Dear Ms. Galleta;

I took the wrong approach when I tried to seek your attention here in your blog. Forgive me. Good thing I saw your mobile number at the threads for the iluko gathering.

Consider this note as a public apology. I admired your stand to keep your lovelife out of the public eye. You are still a Filipina by heart; in your words and in your ways.

The reprimand you gave me when I called you endear you more. Thank you for your patience in answering my calls.

I woke up early and i think you are on your travel by now. Please don't get mad at me. I owe you this note of apology.


Sincerely,

How are you girl? Adda kadi bagyo yo met dita? Stay safe, my dear. I hope mayaten ti rikriknam, saan kan nga agsakit?:-)



Mr. Anderson, noted. I am sorry to say that I never felt comfortable being "virtually sought after". I don't play around when it comes to these kind of things. I am one jolly and friendly soul but matters more than friendships are exceptions to be toyed with. For me, personal relationships concerning private matters must not be flaunted for everyone's consumption in this virtual world. I do respect other people's privacy as well as my own. God bless.

FUSION


Your voice; as you whisper
The most delightful sound
Sweet and soothing music,
Keeping my soul alive
Touching; healing my heart,
Bringing out the sweetest smile;
Such tenderness to bridge;
Skies and seas of dreams

Pleasing is the thought
Of being in your arms;
like the fire that burns;
Keeping away the doubts
Let the soft wind
To carry the softest kiss
To mend; like perfume lingering
To fill your hidden dreams

Just the thought of your smiles;
And, my whole being’s warm
Without me by your side,
Do you feel you’re alive?
Pray tell, my sweetest love;
How do you spend your time?
All these times, Beloved;
You are all I desire.

MISA DE GALLO

“Ta apay itan a makamulengleng ka ditan? Partakam kadi ti aggargaraw.

Baka pagur-urayem to manen tay dyip, kababain,” intaliaw ni Anti Puring idi madlaw na ti panangbuybuyak kenkuana nga agrubrubuat. Maikadua iti inaunaan a kabsat ni Mamang ni Anti Puring. Kas kenni Anti Oning nga inauna, saan met daytoy a naaddaan iti bukod na a pamilya. Ni Mamang ti buridek kadakuada nga innem nga agkakabsat. Daytoy ti umuna a paskua nga addak iti sidong da.

“Ketno sika met laeng ti ur-urayekon Anti, itayak paylaeng a nakarubuat,” insungbat ko ket ginaw-at kon ti jacket ko.

Ti ikit ko met ti simmublat a nangmulengleng kaniak. “No apay ketdi a pagaayat yo ti agkawes kadagita kasta a kumepkep dita bagbagi yo,“ inkusilap na idi matiliw ko ti parimrim na. “Uray koma no saan a simbaan ti papanam, sapay ket parparbangon.”

“Ania ka ketdi aya Ikit, naka long-sleeved la ngad dataon, ania ngarud ket seda met ti tela na din ngad sumurot iti porma ti bagi aya, “ panagtubngar ko met bayat iti panagsimpak iti barikes ko, ken iti panangsirig ko iti pannakai tucked-in ti nalabaga a long sleeves ko iti puraw met a pantalon ko.

“Hmmmp, isuot mo ngarud ta jacket mo tapno saan manen a dayta la likudam a sipsiputan dagiti tattaon. Mangitugutak iti ules nga ikagay ko kenka no kunak, diak la makatepteppel ket no sangkamulengleng daka manen, ayna aya, “ immisugsog ti ikit ko bayat iti panangpinggol na iti atiddog nga buok na.

Diak nateppelan ti rungiit ko. “Isu met laeng nga dika nangasawa Anti, mirmirduot ka met ngamin,” inyangaw ko, ket bulon kon a rimmuar iti siled. Naallingag ko pay laeng ti dayamudom na bayat iti panangitangep ko ti ruangan.

NASALEMSEM. Umuna a parbangon iti misa de gallo ita. Intugaw ko iti sofa iti balkonahe bayat iti panguray ko iti ikit ko. Damok iti sumurot iti ikit ko a mapan makimisa. Iti kano parokya ti San Jose ti mapan mi pakimisaan; sakupen daytoy iti isu met laeng a baryo iti kabangibang nga ili. Saan kon a sinegdan ti bombilya. Nalawag ti anaraar ti nadalus a tangatang a namurumoran kadagiti narimat a bitbituen. Dagiti laeng sumagmamano nga uni ti kuryat ken taul ti aso ti mangsingsinga iti makapnek a talinaay ti parbangon.

Impalpalawlaw ko iti panangkitak. Adda metten sumaggaysa a balbalay a nakagangaten ti pagsilawan na. Nalabit ket adda met agtaeng kadagitoy a makakuyog mi ita kenni Anti. Mabalin met a dagiti managsapsapa a mapan iti bangkag, talon, wenno uma dagiti nakariingen iti daytoy a parbangon. Immarakup ti salemsem ket napnek ti barukong ko iti naumbi a talna bayat iti panangnanam ko iti talinaay nga ipaay ti pannakipagmaymaysak iti nangayed a nakaparsuaan.

Inkidem ko ti immanges ti nauneg. Diak napuotan iti panaglayag ti panunot ko a nagsubli iti adayo bassiten a napalabas...

“SAANKON a kayat nga ituloy ti ordinasyon ko. Saanakon ng agpadi.” Agarup arasaas laeng dagiti balikas ni Erick.

Nakapsut ngem nabatad dagiti balikas na a bulon na nangpetpet iti kanawan a dakulapko.Naikulengak. Kasla nagsardeng ti panaganges ko iti dayta a nangeg ko. Nupay kasta, saan ko a tinaliaw ti kaab-abay ko tapno saan a makadlaw. Adda kami iti katengngaan iti umuna a misa iti parbangon. Madama a maipatpatayab iti offertory song.Inkarigatak a pinasimbeng ti riknak. Saan ko pulos a namnamaen a mangngegak dayta kenkuana.

“Erick, pagpatangan ta dayta inton malpas ti misa, please.” Nasimbeng met ketdi ti timek ko a simmungbat, bulon ko metten a nanglapsut iti dakulap ko.

Awanen arimekmek mi a dua agingga a nalpas iti misa.

Nasinged ti langen langen mi kenni Erick. Nagam-ammo kami, innem a tawenen iti napalabas. Addaak idi iti umuna a tukad ti kolehiyo, kasta met laeng kenkuana nga addan iti umuna a tawen na iti Theology. Nagbalin kami a nadekket nga aggayyem ta agsango laeng ti seminaryo nga ayan da ken iti balay ti ikit ko a paggigianak idi.

“ANIA ti kunkunam nga saan mon nga ituloy ti agpadi?” binurak ko ti ulimek bayat iti panagkiwkiwar ko iti kapek. Nagderetso kami itay nalpas ti misa ditoy McDonald’s nga asideg laeng iti Mount Carmel Church iti New Manila.

Saan a simmungbat a dagus ni Erick. Nakadumog ketdi a mangkiwkiwar met iti kape na.

“Nalipatam kadin a nagkari ka kenni Tita nga itungpal mo iti kinapadim?” Ti ina na ti kayat ko a sawen. “Saan mo met a kalipatan ng inkarim met laeng dayta iti tanem ni Daddym, “ innayon ko manen idi awan mauray ko a sungbat na.

“Saan mo manen nga ibaga nga saan ka pay a desidido? Nalipatam kadin a sekondarya ka pay laeng ket adda kan iti seminaryo? You cannot throw it all away just like that, Erick. That was seventeen years of your life!” intuloy ko idi saan latta nga agtimek. “Don’t tell me it’s about that old thing again,” insennaay ko idi masirok kon ti gapu na a nangibaga kaniak.

Nagari ti ulimek iti nagbaetan mi.

Ni Erick. Saan a mailinged ti espesyal a rikna mi ti maysa ken maysa sipud pay damo mi nga agkita. Iti naganus a panunot ko idi (disisais laeng ti tawen ko), ammokon nga awan nasayaat nga itden daytoy a banag kadakami. Nagpatangan mi ngarud daytoy a banag ken nagkinnari kami a saan nga aglabes iti panaggayem laeng iti langen langen mi.Nupay narigat a kontrolen ti rikna, naaramid mi dayta iti unos ti agarup lima a tawen a panagkadkadua mi a kas agpagayam. Kadagiti masansan a pangkuyog mi a mapan makimisa wenno mapan agukag ukag kadagiti liblibro iti bookstore, liniklikan mi a pagpatangan daytoy a banag.

“Can’t we give it a try? “Nakapsut ti timek ni Erick idi maala na ti rikna na.

“Maburiburan iti panunot ko ita. Mano laengen nga aldaw, Loops, awatek ton ti sakramento ti kinapadi. Saan monto ngata a panunuten iti masanguanan ti mabalin a pagbanagan ta? Will you ever wonder no ania ti biag ta no kaspangarigan tallikudak iti panagpadi ket agpakasar ta? “
Saanak a nakauni iti dayta nga insawang ni Erick. Naunday a panawen a saan min a sinagsagid daytoy a topiko.

“We already talked about this, Erick. That was almost five years ago. We promised to God, and we must stick to it,” naalumamay dagiti balikas ko idi maalak ti riknak nga agsao. Pinilit ko a patibkeren ti nakem ko nupay nadagsen ti duyok dagiti insawang ko a balikas iti bukod ko a rikna.

“Nagkari ta a dua iti sango ti Diyos a saan a pulos a mamulitan ti bokasyon mo a duata ti agbalin a gapgapu na. Nagibtur tan iti mano a tawen, daytoyen ti ungto para iti arapaap mo, saan mo kadi nga itulok nga abaken naka iti panagpulkok.” Natibker latta ti timek ko nupay malmalmesen ti kaunggak iti agsasallupang a rikna.

Nauneg a sennaay ti insungbat na.

“I won’t allow it Erick. I think it’s for the best if we don’t see each other anymore after these.” Kasla nailansa daytoy iti nagtugawan na iti insawang ko. Bigla ti pangngeddeng ko ngem ammok nga daytoy ti umno a mapasamak. Saan kon nga inuray nga agtimek pay. Pinidut ko ti jacket ko ket timmakderakon.

Inasitgak iti tugaw na ket inabrasak iti apagbiit. “Saan mo a gamden ti umay diay balay wenno mangbirok iti ayan ko. For both of us; for our own peace of mind. In due time, agkita tanto met laeng. Saan mo a kalipatan a napateg ka kaniak, ket dayta ti gapu nu apay nga aramidek daytoy. See you then, Erick.” Dagitoy ti naudi a balikas ko iti gayyem ko sakbay a pinanawak nga agmaymaysa iti dayta a parbangon.

Duan a tawen ti napalabas manipud idi. Saanen a nagsabat ti dalan mi kenni Erick. Nupay nasaem kaniak daydi a pangngeddeng ko, ammok iti nakem ko nga inaramid ko iti ammok nga umno. In-inut a pinaglunnit ti panawen dagiti lagip iti panaglabas ti aldaw. Nailiwliwag ko dagiti adu a saludsod babaen iti panangtaming ko iti trabahok iti World Vision a kas maysa kadagiti Donor Care Specialist. Imbulos kon ti panawen ko iti panangtaming kadagiti annungek para kadagiti ubbing.

Nasinga ti panagpanpanunot ko idi mangeg ko ti banurbor ti sumungad a dyip. Apagisu met a rummuar ni Anti Puring. Nagkuyog kamin a nagturong iti kalsada a pangurayan mi iti pagluganan mi a mapan iti simbaan.

ADUN ti tao a nasangpetan mi iti simbaan. Inturong nak ti ikit ko iti makinsangsango a parte; apagisu met nga adda pay bakante iti makisango unay a tugaw. Adda pay sumagmamano a minuto sakbay a mangrugi ti misa. Innalak ngarud dayta a gundaway nga agkararag. Imparintumeng ko nga inkidem ti nangitananamitim iti kararag ko.

Nasingaak iti kiriring ti kampanilya. Mangrugin ti misa.

Saanak a nakakuti idi iyangad ko ti rupak ket mataldiapak ti padi nga mangrugin nga agpalaem iti altar manipud iti ruangan ti simbaan. Naimayeng met daytoy idi agsabat ti panagkita mi. Kadagita a gundaway, nagsardeng dagiti darikmat para kaniak. Nupay kasta, pinilit ko a pinasimbeng ti riknak. Inin-inayad ko ti timmakder ket intuon ko ti imatang ko iti altar. Pinilit ko ti bagik a saan a mangtaldiap iti padi. Madlaw ko met ti a pilpiliten na a saan a tumaliaw iti ayan ko.
Nadanonan iti ebanghelyo ken iti sermon. Naunday bassit ti panawen ti ulimek sakbay a nangrugi nga agsao ti padi.

“Daytoy ti umuna a misa a maangay a kas panangpasungad tayo iti isasangbay iti paskua. Ket makunak ngarud a naisangsangayan daytoy a kanito para kadatayo amin. Adda insaganak a topiko para iti daytoy misa, ngem gapu ta adda simmangbay a diak pulos napakpakadaan, bay-an dak man a mangibinglay iti maysa a paset iti personal a biag ko a mabalin met laeng a mainaig iti ebanghelyo tayo ita.”

Nabukel ti timek ti padi. Nagpatnga bassit daytoy iti altar. Diak man ammo no apay a diak masarkedan a taldiapan man laeng. Indumog ko ket inabalbalay ko ti iggem ko a bassit a biblia bayat iti panangituloy daytoy iti sermon na.

“Maysa a baggak ti nangitunda kadagiti tallo nga Ari tapno nasarakan da ti nakayanakan ti Apo tayo a mannubot. Daytoy a baggak, isu’t mangiturturong iti umno a dana a pagnaan da. Nagparang daytoy a bituen iti panawen a kinasapulan dagiti tallo nga ari ti lawag na. Nagbalin ngarud dayta a rimat a kas giya tapno matun-oy dagitoy nga ari dagiti gagem ti kaunggan da; dayta ket awan sabali no saan nga iti pannakasarak da iti naipasngay a mannubot. Iti bukod tayo a panagbiag, adda dagiti “baggak” nga agserbi a lawag iti dalan tayo. Adda dagiti ‘baggak” nga agparang iti panawen a kasapulan tayo iti pannarabay ken lawag iti panpanunot tapno saan tayo a maiyaw-awan. Wen kakabsat ko ida, addaan tayo amin iti “baggak” a mangbayabay ken mangiturong kadatayo iti umno a dalan a masapul a suroten tayo.”

Nagari ti ulimek iti panagsardeng ti padi nga agsao.Nupay nasalemsem, nangiruar daytoy iti panio ket pinunasan na ti muging na sakbay ti panangituloy na iti panagsao na.

“Iti bukod ko a panagbiag, nasarakak dayta a “baggak”. Isu ti nagbalin a bukod ko a pannubok, kasta metten nga isu ti lawag a nangitunda kaniak iti sakaanan ti Diyos. Iti panaglabas dagiti aldaw, in-inut a naawatak dagiti pasamak iti biag ko a mainaig iti dayta a baggak. Daytoy ket babaen iti bukod ko a panagkarkararag, panagsukisok, ken kasta metten kadagiti insangbay ti panawen a paspasamak. In-inut a nakitak dagiti gapu ken kaipapanan iti isasangbay dayta a baggak iti bukod ko a biag; saan a tapno tagikuaek, no diket tapno agserbi a bagnos iti dalan ko.”

Immanges ti nauneg ti padi sakbay na nga intuloy ti nagsao.

“Dua a tawenen iti napalabas, agarup kastoy met laeng nga oras ken kanito idi nagalimpatok ti rimat dayta a baggak iti imatang ko. Babaen iti panangidalan na, natun-oy ko ti nakaikariak. Ammok a iti baet ti amin, nagsagaba met dayta a baggak iti panagsilsilnag na iti dalan ko, ngem ammok met a naragsak ita a makakita iti nagbanagak. Ita a kanito, ipeksak ti panagyaman ko iti impaay na a pannarabay. Ket aglaplapusanan ti ragsak iti kaunggak iti pannakakitak manen ita nga oras kadagiti rimat na. Kakabsat ko ken Cristo, adda dagiti pasamak iti biag tayo a masapul nga ibuksilan tayo dagiti anag ken kaipapanan na. Adda dagiti parabur ti Namarsua a naitalimeng kadagiti panagsagaba a sagrapen tayo . Takem ti tumunggal maysa kadatayo a biruken ken ibuksilan dagita a sagut. Kas met laeng iti intayo panangwanawan iti langit a mangsapul iti naisalsalumina a rimat ti bukod tayo a “baggak”. Daytoy a rimat ti mangitunda kadatayo iti bukod tayo a nakaikarian."

"Ituloy tayo ngarud ti nasantuan a misa; kumararag tayo.”

Inkurimed ko a sinagid dagiti suli ti matak. Pengpengdak dagiti umarubos a lua a kas man naibuang iti kaunggak. Agal-allangogan pay laeng dagiti balikas ti padi. Kas man bimmaba ti langit iti panagriknak iti dayta a kanito. Diak unayen maimdengan ti nainlangitan a samiweng nga ipatpatayab ti koro. Kas man iyin-indayon ti aweng a parnuayen dagiti anghel ti panagdengngeg ko a mangitaytayok ti karuruak gapu kadagiti pasamak a diak napakadaan.

“Ipaay tayo ti kappia iti maysa ken maysa.”

Awtomatiko a sinapul dagiti matak ti imatang ti padi. Manarimaan daytoy a mangal-alamano kadagiti adda iti ungto it ayan ko a tugaw. Saan kon a napengdan dagiti luak idi agtakder daytoy iti sangok. Narimat dagiti napnuan talged a mata na iti panangabrasa na kaniak.

“Peace be with you, Loops” natalinaay ti timbre ti boses na.

Manipud iti kampanaryo, natinggaw dagiti agal-allangogan nga uni dagiti kampana. Kas man aweng a mangipasimudaag iti tinggaw dagiti garakgak, ken tarnaw dagiti sumangbay a darikmat iti dayta a parbangon ken dagiti pay sumangbay a parbangon a pannakaangay ti misa de gallo. Talinaay ken regta nga agtaeng agingga a madanunan ti kaaldawan ti paskua, kasta metten kadagiti sumangbay pay nga agsapa.

Nganngani saan a simngaw ti boses ko idi siisemak a nangisubli ti abrasa na.

With poetry, its purely emotions manong. :-) with that short story, it is quite tiring, hehehe!

Poetry will always be my baby, :-) i just tried if I can indeed write a short story..the thing manong is.. that story is not fiction.

'ye rent room
(one more time)

listen not, deaf are the ears
my lips trembling with fears
look deep into my soul, you will
keep it secret whatever you feel

of course; nurture it into your bosom
and when it's time, let it be bloom
everybody ould see and marvel beauty
beneath heaven there's room of harmony

whenever your heart so desire
and lit up your world like fire
ease the pain deep in your chest
you found the rest; time to rest

yes, so may chances, i tell you
they are there; you don't know
from slumber rise; walk the sun
write for me; i'll answer for fun

... don't tell me your doctor still
have that light on his forehead which
appears to be sun. just telling you what i see.
your poem is like window. # 95

WORDS THAT DISCRIBES ME “SUTIL” FROM A to Z

I am not an ADOLESCENT because I don’t act like a teenager when you don’t treat me like an adult.

I hate being called BACHELOR because I don’t treat all women as sequels

I don’t believe in COURTESY because it’s an acceptable hypocrisy.

I consider myself a DEMAGOGUE because I preach doctrines I know to be untrue to people I know to be idiots.

I am not an EGOTIST because I am not more interested in myself – than in you.

FLATTERY is my game; I love the applause that refreshes

I love GOSSIP. The only time people dislikes gossip is when we gossip about them.

I also love being HOME. It is the only place where I can scratch any place I itch.

I know that injustice is not hard to bear; it’s JUSTICE that really hurts.

I’ve been told that I am a KLEPTOMANIAC, not because I keep stealing, but because I can’t help helping myself.

I love LOGIC because it is the system of thinking that tells us that out of snow you can’t make bibingka.

I hate the word MARRIAGE. They say it makes two one; but you never can tell which one is the one. I say it’s a mutual partnership, if one remains mute. Bwi hi hi hi hi hi

I define NEWS as anything that makes a man say, “For heaven’s sake!”

I am an OPTIMIST because I think things can’t get worse – after they get worse.

PLATITUDE puts a smile on my face. They are an observation too true to be good.

I have no QUALITY. I tend to quantify.

I enjoy the RULES OF WAR. They are rules that make it illegal to hit below the toes.

I can keep a SECRET. It is what we tell everybody to tell nobody.

I find it hard to believe that a man is telling the TRUTH when you know you would lie if you were in his place.

I am UPBEAT. I beat you up but don’t beat you down

I am VENOMOUS because I can spit out words that make you chuckle that could cause you pain if you can’t comprehend.

I hate WAITERS. They are representative of the leisure class.

When I YAWN, I do a silent shout.

I am ZEALOUS because I have a nervous disorder that affects the inexperienced.

LJ, a Blessed Sunday morning to you! Can I have a hug girl? UHHMMMMMM! Here are the DuaTa's from my poem "Iti Idadateng Mo." Take care girl. Missed you!

Nagsam-it nga lagipen aldaw nga nagam-ammo ta
Nangted lubong ko ragsak ken regta
Ta awanen umasping pay iti ayat
Inka kaniak inted ken inyawat.

Ta awanen umasping pay iti ayat
Inka kaniak inted ken inyawat
Nangted lubong ko ragsak ken regta
Nagsam-it nga lagipen aldaw nga nagam-ammo ta.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nagbalinen nga namaris it tunggal kanito
Ket dinepdep mo agsasamusam nga leddaang ko
Dagidi segga ken karayo, pammateg isu't inpaay mo
Awan ket awanen makaartap ayat mo nga napudno.

Dagidi segga ken karayo, pammateg isu't inpaay mo
Awan ket awanen makaartap ayat mo nga napudno
Ket dinepdep mo agsasamusam nga leddaang ko
Nagbalinen nga namaris iti tunggal kanito.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Agliblibiang toy pusok iti ragsak
Tunggal kanito boses mo mangmangngegak
Bay-am met ngarud nga subadak
Dagiti kinasayaat mo nga ipakpakitam kaniak.

Dagiti kinasayaatmo nga ipakpakitam kaniak
Bay-am met ngarud nga subadak
Tunggal kanito boses mo mangmangngegak
Agliblibiang toy pusok iti ragsak.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ited ko kenka toy puso ken ayat
Karaman pammateg ken pannakaawat
Saanto koman pulos nga agressat ken agkupas
Sinangal ta nga ayat bayat al-aldaw nga aglabas.

Saanto koman pulos nga agressat ken agkupas
Sinangal ta nga ayat bayat al-aldaw nga aglabas
Karaman pammateg ken pannakaawat
Ited ko kenka toy pusok ken ayat.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yamanek unay, unay iti inka idadateng
Bareng awanton dagiti banbanag nga makatubeng
Sika ket siksikanto laeng
Ditoy uneg ti pusok nga nakatalimeng.

if...on us
(FUSION)

it did, aah! how lovely to know as such
that brings you healing touch that much
could i paste the sea and sky on your ceiling
so when i'm gone theres a bridge of reminiscing
could i call in the mids of the night to whisper
the funny poems i've written coz i'm ban forever

could i... put warmth on that thought
magical blanket from heaven to soothe
tired limbs, drying lips, eyes from crying
miracle kiss of life to your lips glowing
traversing all your flesh through your viens
purging toxins, mending fibers also pains

no...life has no meaning without you
i'll be lost in the blogs of sorrow
just a thought of you turning to a dream
my fingers tremble...i want to scream
yet...why not...ooh! it's all written
if ..on us... it very well happened

... just having fun so i wont get
lost in blogs of sorrow. well #97
it's always my pleasure reading and answering
your poems...did you catch that guy with X pictue.
by the way... you're number one...the guy is invisible.

Kadagiti rukib, natingra a kadilian.

Naannayas, aweng dagiti arimpadek
Parnuayen a ritmo dagiti baddek
Bayat panagpadas a mangrukod
Aplaya a rangtay dagiti sungbat ken saludsod.

Nupay adda saning-i’t naibudi
Kadagiti lung-ay, addang a napnuan sudi
Nalinteg, takap dagiti tugot
Imalmaldit; dagiti sennaay nga inka imbulos

Kas kinamaris dagiti panagtabon
Mangyaw-awan kinakawaw gapu’t ipapanaw
Daras a pugasen rumusing nga aligaga
Mangandingay; mangay-ayo iti agpauyo a malem.

Awan patingga na a talinaay,
Iyar-arasaas tunggal isasangbay
Naumbi nga agek kadagiti dapan
Itunda’t manggargari a puyupoy ti amian.

Wen, kukuam dagiti kanito,
Tunggal panagwaywayas a mangpadas
Mangarakup iti bugas dagiti arapaap
Gagem a naitalimeng, agbibiag iti kaunggam.

theres closet behind you and send it to my high school english

God willing. i'll write another twenty five we throw some God willing

in someway, when your life is getting wane
don't be disturb;just stay on the right lane
even someone says: "you are the villain"
Angel shouts:"You're a VICTOR and not a victim!"

you are not a victim ; but a VICTOR
even the world give you many sores
others stabs you back with gores
remember: you are in Gods' Favors!

yes, we have so many imperfections
but someday will come to completions
as long;we fufill our elected missions
happy ending: "Heaven is our final home!"

more blessing birthday Ms. Lg!-:)

apong kups, siakon ti aginnaw kadagita longlongan, magungonak ta siak ti naudi. Kunak no saanak makaumay ta naikaglisak idi napanak diay talon isu napanak nagpailut.

apong kups, watch your diets! baka agkaronto manen dayta rayumam, sige ka!
best day to all!
