I hold the promise

of bright wings,

pixie dust,

iridescence,

flight.

consider the larva

that braves its own company

and surrenders its form

to the darkness. then,

is born into brilliant

sunlight. becomes it facet.

moves in the quarters of something

greater than itself.

the changelings who leave in droves

streak the sky in their wake

and disappear forever.

where do they go? my hope

or imagination

cannot tell me, the way

i won’t let them change me.

for i dont know

where beauty might emerge

in a body weighed down

by the inertia of its ugliness.

but they who watch me

plot transformation

where there is none. and point,

point at the areas where

i will sprout emerald antennae,

my pixie feet.

i brave their company,

surrender my form

to their hope. then,

i am born into brillian

warmth. and become,

before the eyes

of those who knew beauty

because they love,

not because they see.

– Melissa S. Salva

run, pant, run

Warning: space filler (hehe)

i love treadmills

its probably the most important invention by man next to the wheel and ice cream

all i have to do is get on it

push the start button

choose my speed

play my music

and away i run

for as long and as fast as i want to

its always best if i set it the speed at around 10kph

after a few minutes the world shrinks to just me, the threadmill, the music, and my panting breath

the meaning of life is reduced to putting one foot in front of another

no time to do anything else

no chance to think about deadlines, reports, or world peace

its just me and the treadmill

its a form of escape from a world that sometimes gets a bit pushy

and rather fight back

i rather run

run as fast as i could

and escape, even for just a while

to a world where the only question is how fast i want to run

where the only task assigned to me is to move my legs and pant

of course after all the effort i would still alight on where i started

after all the steps, i did not moved a single inch

but who cares?

there’s too much aimless movement in the world

that its quite refreshing to stay put

and pant.

weeeeeeeehhhhhhh for 2008

Posted in Uncategorized on January 8, 2008 by armedlittleboy

the year (2007) has come and passed only to be replaced by another one (2008) to live through yet again

its been a colorful 2007 (how cliche can I be?) peppered with realizations and ‘ouch’ moments that transforn into learnings

thus armed with these learnings and realizations I have drawn up a 2008 plan for myself, resolutions based on learnings and realizations that I have pickep up in the year that was (aysus)

To wit, I have learned that……….

1. when you cannot take it anymore, you cannot really take it anymore no matter what you do, no matter how much you motivate yourself. thus i resolve to end the things that makes it hard for me to get out of bed every morning. i resolve to quit the things that prevent me from smiling, the things that prevent me from pursuing what i feel i want to do right now in my life

2. the things that makes me stronger are not always doing me a favor by making me stronger. sometimes strength is not what I need in life. sometimes all I need  is a cup of coffee and good conversation with friends. thus i resolve that ill buy more coffee, meet up more with friends, and just pray to God for strength  =p

3. a lot things are being said without words. and these things which are not expressed verbally are mostly the things that are misunderstood or confused with something else by others. thus i resolve to say the things i want to say out loud, to express my feelings in clear and simple language at the precise moment when it is needed to be said.

4. money may not be able to buy happiness but it sure can make me believe that I’m happy. it does a great job of covering up the empty spaces in my life. its sanity in a wallet. but still its not as good as the real thing. when people asked if im happy about my purchases (e.g. phone) im always hesitant to reply. i can either be satisifed or not with my purchases, but happy? im not sure about happy. thus i resolve to see money for what it really is, a temporary relief for minor aches that should not determine the decisions and paths I would take in the current year.

5. when its over, its over. there is no use in holding on to severed ties. step back and let go. its easier than it seems. there is no sense in cluttering up life with false hopes and unrealized expectations. clutter just obscures our view of better possibilities and holds us down to form new ties. thus i resolve to leave everything unnecessary and useless to the past. if life really is a race, I dont want to run with an overloaded baggage.
