Time and Space

Note: I found this old poem that I wrote back in Aug. 8, 2002 Thursday and Nov. 17, 2002 Monday

Dig until eternity
And you shall find my soul.
Journey down to the bottom of my heart
Where it is calm and kind,
Sleep until you feel comfort
So you’ll be soft and mild.
If you want to leave your footprints,
Don’t leave to me your evil,
Leave to me your friendship,
And remember you I will.

Random Things I Wrote about Love and Other Feelings 4

I found an old notebook where I wrote stuff, so I decided to post them here.

  • Freezing

Now I’m more than cold,
I’m more than ice,
I’ve sold my soul for about twice
For me to hold you once again
I wish to keep you
Till my dying end

  • Paano (May 20, 2014)

Paano ako napunta dito?

  • Done This (July 12, 2001)

Why does it feel like we’ve done this in another lifetime?
Done this

  • Make the World Shut Up (2003)

Make the world shut up,
Get the hell out of me.
I like who I am,
Who the hell are you to tell me how to breathe?

  • Catharsis (Oct. 13, 2003)

She was screaming, “Catharsis”
Like as if calling to the gods.
She was planning a vendetta
So she can even out the odds.

Things That Have Changed About Me

Recently, I’ve been reading my 2015 diary (specifically my Colorful Leaves Diary, Vol. 31), and I realized that there are so many things that have changed about me.

I no longer want to get rich.

I used to want to have a business by the age of 30. I’m 31 now, and still no luck with that goal, but more than that, it’s not a goal anymore. This is because I got exposed to activism, specifically to people who are socialists. I don’t completely understand socialism yet, so I can’t say I’m a socialist, but I realized that capitalism is fucked up. Someday it will be immoral to be a millionaire. Why would one person need that much money? Why would one person need 10 cars? How can one person hoard that much money and feel nothing when he or she sees a hungry and homeless person in the street? How can a person live in such extravagance and then at the same time say that he or she does not have enough money to pay for the people that he or she employs?

I do want to become more financially stable, but just enough to meet my needs. Right now, I still get money from my mother, so I want to be able to be financially independent someday. That’s why I am working on my masters, and I told our chair that I want to start talking about how to get tenured. I am also trying to find a part-time job to supplement my teaching income. If ever my efforts generate more income than I need, then I hope that I will not be greedy, that I will actually give away my extra wealth.

Random Things I Wrote About Love and Other Feelings

So I found this old notebook where I wrote fragments of poetry and songs. I guess that someday I want to expand these ideas into actual poems and songs, but for nowI decided to post it here in my blog.
