Life Lately | Febru-weary

As much as I only want to post mostly sunny, positive, and good things on this blog, I've come to realize that hindi pala keri. Life isn't all sunny episodes. And, I don't want to portray one that has it all together (in this life nor in this blog)-- because, there's no such thing. It's… Continue reading Life Lately | Febru-weary


Poem | Dandelion Wishes

You make her want to wish, but not the kind most people think, not wishes of fortune, beauty, nor fame. She wishes to fit into your mold. She wishes to be bold, filled with a lot of guts to speak her mind. She wishes to be more outgoing, less likely to spend time alone. She wishes… Continue reading Poem | Dandelion Wishes


Life Lately | January ’18

This morning, upon checking my inbox, I saw this emailed letter from FutureMe. I was happy and surprised because I have already forgotten about this letter I wrote a month ago.

Poem | The Leaf Who’s Afraid to Fall

It's finally fall season once again, where leaves are slowly changing colors — turning from greens to browns and yellows. But unlike most, one stays the same. In the many autumns that passed, that one leaf stayed connected to its branch — trying her best not to detach and free fall. Her fears and insecurities… Continue reading Poem | The Leaf Who’s Afraid to Fall
