Sad Face

I want to meet somebody

who will listen to my stories

and will not judge me from that.

Who will stay with me no matter what.

Somebody who likes the same things as I do

so we can share whatever we have.

Somebody I can just be with anytime, anywhere.

Somebody who makes me feel okay

whenever I'm fucked up.

I like to think you're that somebody.

Even though I haven't known you that much,

I can feel you're perfect.

We haven't even talked.

We just stare at each other but not too long.

Actually, it is me who stares longer.

Other times, thinking of you hurts.

Knowing the fact that you're just a dream

I have always thought of.

I can name names of girls who are linked to you

...and I hope I could say my name, too.

Have I crossed your mind?

Cos for me, you always do.

Dr. Seuss: Wacky Wednesday



"It all began with a shoe on the wall. A shoe on the wall? Shouldn't be there at all!" --Wacky Wednesday by Dr. Seuss.
I recited that in my memory :)
Anyway, who doesn't love Dr. Seuss? Almost every kid love his stories because its fun to read. Not all children books are fun to read, right? Plus who doesn't enjoy reading stories in rhyme? Even teenagers (and some adults) still read his books. (Yes, I did a research on Google so I am certain about it. Haha!)
No matter how many times you read it, it still makes you laugh! It makes me remember the odd days I had before. But its a different story for me cos I am clumsy.
And I refuse to share my stories. :P

From Being There to Being Towards Death

Man is a There-being. As long as man lives, he never stops discovering himself. He never stops learning what makes him human and will never reach his wholeness. He is not only a there-being but also a being-towards-death.

I think my most important learning in Philosophy of Man is the Philosophy of Death because death is man’s ultimate possibility. As a human, it is a fact and no one can take it away from us. It is important because as there-beings, we should also be aware that being alive is an opportunity for us to know ourselves, to be productive and experience life to the fullest and that we should also be aware that life has its end.

No one can experience and represent it for you. People may say they have witnessed death but it is from other people’s death which they have experienced to and by that they make conclusions about their own deaths. Death individualizes man; it is personal. That is, it is something only man can do by himself. Though it is the ultimate end, it doesn’t mean we can reach our totality when we die.

We may or may not be fulfilled. As an optimist, we may be fulfilled when we expect and anticipate our death because in that way we may give our best shot in everything, everyday. No one wants to die without reaching at least one goal in life, right? So that is why we should do whatever we can do for the betterment of ourselves and to others.

On the other hand, there are a lot of possibilities for us to die early. Thus making us not fulfilled. So what if we are not fulfilled when we die? In a positive view, you may not be fulfilled but you must think that you will find your wholeness as a person when you experience death because in death, man realizes his wholeness and brings to completion the commitment of his whole self to the whole of reality. We should not just waste time to things that will not do good to us because time is one of the precious things in life.

Thus, we should treasure time by making ourselves productive. I may sound courageous enough to face death in a matter of minutes but the truth is I fear facing death. All of us, there-beings, are anxious about it. We fear to lose our relationships, potentials, careers and of being with others because we know that when we die the line that connects us to others and to other things will be cut and lost forever.

The Little Prince


"Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them." - The Little Prince is written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

This story is so inspiring. It made me realize that I am already a grown-up (at some point) because I choose to complicate things than to look at things in a simpler way. Grown-ups are always busy that they forget how to think of the small things around them - the small things that make up big things.

"If you were to say to the grown-ups: “I saw a beautiful house made of rosy brick, with geraniums in the windows and doves on the roof,” they would not be able to get an idea of that house at all. You have have to say to them: “I saw a house that cost $20,000.” Then they would exclaim: “Oh, what a pretty house that is!”"

Grown-ups never acknowledge anything that isn't interesting for them. You can never talk to them about cute things (sorry for the choice of word!) because they don't have time for all that shit. But I believe there are grown-ups who always appreciate small, cute stories from little kids. And I believe I am like that. Hahaha

"I may become like the grown-ups who are no longer interested in anything but figures."

Grown-ups seldom get sad whenever one bids farewell. Its like they don't treasure friendship as a concrete relationship. For them, friendship is like "when you go with me then you're with me but if not, you don't deserve my time." I may be like that at some point but not that harsh. In friendship, we must not only focus on how many times your friend has always been there with you and you are with them. Sometimes, destiny takes us somewhere where we have to leave all behind for our own good.

"Language is the source of misunderstandings."

True that! Sometimes we misunderstand things that have said to us and sometimes we say things the wrong way and get misunderstood. So, sometimes it is better to be silent about what we feel and let others feel it because that way we feel comfortable and not worried if we are misunderstood or not.
