Aurora Quezon’s bust at the Quezon Memorial

My friend, I want to see your face
Because I want to spot the trace
Of the things you hide inside
Everytime you can’t decide
If life’s worth living
Or if it’s worth leaving.



On Sadness

sadness is not always about tears and frowns.
sometimes, it’s with the silence,
the thoughts that are flooding your welcoming mind,
the feelings that ramble your harrowing heart,
the words that are stuck at the end of your tongue,
the silence that breaks you,
the life that is not.
sadness is not always about the lack of smiles,
sometimes, it’s a way of life.
