My first road accident was when I was a kid. I was riding a kid’s scooter in a public park. Then this man, on a big bike, rode head on to me when I was at the side of the road. My mom was furious because I couldn’t breathe after. The guy even pinned the…

Maybe God is making me feel pain. And in the most simplest way possible, too. My phone just broke down a week ago which is making me disabled online. I just lost my wallet, too. It had money, IDs, my credit card and most of all, my stash of memory cards and SIM cards. I…

Trickle

My tears mean nothing, Trickling down, down, Breaking into ashes Oh, heart of my own. My voice means nothing, Crackign sharp, sharply But it makes no sound, Not even a meaning. To their ears it crosses, Fast, very quickly, The heart of it unknown, Alone as it will always be. They look but turn around,…

I’m the type to believe every little superstitious thing my mother tells us. And one thing I really believe is that a family should have a pet, especially when they start having kids. I grew up with no pets. My mom said we used tohae a dog but I never could remember him. Then we…

The Holidays Matter, And Mine Did

I don’t celebrate Christmas. I don’t believe in it. I mean, the December 25th celebration. I believe that Christ was born in April, and that more than His birth, His death and ressurection is what matters most, the reason for our soul’s eternal salvation. But I live in the Philippines, a country that takes the…

  I came to the office and he didn’t even smile at me, something he usually does whenever I arrive. I sat there and something felt gloomy about him. The other developer was talking to him but he barely even opened his mouth. The other web designer arrived a few minutes after me and tried…

Damn. My footsteps are heavy. Maybe I shouldn’t have come. It’s not too late to turn back anyway. But oh no. The door opened. The company’s year-end party was tonight and my anxiety is getting the best out of me because I am so scared to even say a word. I looked inside and saw…

I hate dreams. I have learned to hate them. But I still have to embrace them. After my numerous encounters with dreams of mine that give me either a warning or a glimpse of the future, I learned to always take them heed. My mom always says that dreams are the works of your mind….

Hi! My Name is Keji!

I was born into a small house in a very quiet neighborhood. I can’t remember who my mother was anymore. Maybe she looked like me, or maybe my brother. I don’t know. But what I do remember is that they gave us away. It was a sad day, I agree. But that was also one…

When I was a kid, I was always amazed with choirs and how they sing. I used to tell myself, “I want to be just like them.” Even when we joined our church almost 15 years ago, I was amazed at how the singers sang hymns. Then I remember hearing the Hallelujah chorus being sung…

A First Time For Everything

The Lord has been gracious and has given me the gift of words. But everyone who knows me deeply, know for a fact that my words are limited to that of writing. Yes, I am good in speaking, but I have never been that great when it comes to talking to people I don’t know….

For This Great Country

The Pearl of the Orient, the land of my fathers, The land of the ever so brave. Your light shines as the sun’s rays reflect on your oceans, Your beauty held within its mountains and hills. The Lord has blessed you ever with grandeur and grace, Your most prized treasure lies in your people Of…
