Witnessing Christmas

For those who fret to have work shifts on the 24th and 25th, remember that the first witnesses of Christ's birth, the shepherds, were at the middle of their jobs when it all happened. Rejoice that you are in good company. Wherever we are and whatever we are doing, it must not hinder us from celebrating the true meaning of the holidays. Merry Christmas everyone.

Time and Space and Life and Love

What does life has to offer? What can I offer to life?
When you ask for a pillow, you’ll be given a knife.
And then you ask yourself, what it is that I see.
Is this my imagination, or is it the reality?

There are days that I want to shed all negativity,
Though circumstances take me off my objectivity,
Trying hard to get things going, acting like a hero,
While the easiest thing to do is just to let go.

An ordinary human would succumb to all these pain,
And nothing could be done to keep a person sane.
That would happen certainly if you are all alone,
Thus like a weakly kingdom with a queen-less throne.

There’s always a Divine plan, but we’re given a free choice,
Which makes it tough to follow while fighting all the noise.
But directions from above will always be the pure one,
With a clear mind you will know when things are to be done.

It was never perfect, but is relatively near.
With you beside me, there are few things that I fear
One is the thought of not having you with me,
It’s like living in this world when there’s nothing else to see.

We’ve shared all this love that is bountiful and overflowing,
That adds up these two beating hearts, so lively and fulfilling,
To them we part our joys, our present and our future,
That no matter how hard this life is, together we’ll endure.

Beautiful portions of my life, most of the reason is you,
From the deepest pits of it, you’ve always pulled me thru,
The smallest things you do push me to stand up,
The biggest deeds you make pull me back to where we start.

Time and space have always been so important,
But being beside you makes these things irrelevant,
Adding up these two kids, the four of us together,
Having you all close to me, I want now to be forever.

Happy birthday to my wife Cel. Thank you and I love you.

Imaginary Enemies of Insecurity

There’s a sudden increase of quotes and posters going around the social media that portray heroism out of underrated roles in the society. Or, are they really?

Playing the victim card is rampant not because people are real victims but most of the time, it is caused by insecurity. There are those who think that their roles in the society are lowly and that people look at them degradingly. Truth is, thinking low starts within the person himself, not from the outside. Unaware of this, an insecure person starts justifying his existence by magnifying and dramatizing his acts. And while doing so, he creates imaginary enemies like those whom he think are belittling his contributions and in the process doing ugly comparisons and ends up as the one guilty of degradation of the role of another person.

Insecurity is never a justification to put someone on a higher pedestal while dragging another one below. Insecurity is an illness of the society. Confidence is the better alternative. Confidence is to understand that what you do is important for who you care for and not for the others to care about
