“Tieren Taozi: People who truly love would never leave.

GN-007 Arios: No, people who truly love may leave. Any person can be the right person. Any person can be worth the fight. But it isn’t the lovers responsibility to prove that the people they love is worth fighting for, worth staying for. You prove to your self that you love them and you’d fight for them. It’s on their side if they’re really worth the pain.”

How existentially wrecked people talk about Mobile Suits.

Sining ng mga Multong Bumabagabag Sa’yo

“Ano nga ba ako sa’yo?
Tintang nagmarkang itim sa’yong malaking mundo?
Mga talatang ibang tao ang may akda?
Isang masalimuot na kwento na iba ang gumawa?
Pigurang nililok ng imaheng umukit sa’yong nakaraan?
Kasaysayang nakatala sa luma niyang talaarawan?
Pinturang nagkulay abo dahil sa paghimlay at panahon?
Guhit kamay na mukha na sinira ng pagkakataon?
Kapirasong sining na nilikha ng mga multong bumabagabag sa’yo?
Larawan ng taong kailanman ay hindi naging ako?”

– Alay sa mga taong namumuhay sa mga anino ng nakaraan ng iba –

LUSTER

As I lay hopeful next to a riddle
Reaching for transition through the depths of my soul
Believing that magic lives through your eyes
I falter, engulfed by the thought of us
Embracing the idea that I could live anew
Gleeful, I cherish the time that Iā€™ am next to you
One more kiss before I long for you.

Pamaskong dalawang sentimo #372: Keyboard Warriors and the Drug War

So, a while ago nabasa ko yung mga tweets ni Mariel de Leon regarding the drug war. Don’1t give an F about her comments about El Presidente nor the ones about Ms. Uson. But she made me realize that this is starting to be an epidemic. Dilawan ka man, Dutertard or Free Thinker, lahat ng pactions may sakit nito.

The thing that got me writing about this bullshit is her “comments” on the drug war, on killing, on what she thinks is supposed to be done about it. And of course yung “comments” ng supporters and haters ni Ms. de Leon. See, the point is, thats all there is to these shenanigans, puro comments lang. Everyone is entitled to have an opinion, I get that. But is that really how we promote change? Giving out opinions? Yun na yun? Is that all we’re gonna do? Yap about what should be done rather than leading by example? Para san ba talaga ang pinaglalaban ng karamihan satin? To keep us woke? Tae, matagal na tayong gising. Sa sobrang tagal mas gusto ko ng matulog naman tayo, ng matagal, ng walang gumigising. Loko lang.

I’am against murder, I’am also against letting members of our police force die while serving para ma feed lang ang ego ng mga purista. The drug war has its pros and cons. But blabbing about its good and bad side won’t change anything. To think na madalas pa sa madalas, yung mga maiingay sa social media have only experienced the perils of our country’s drug problems while reading, watching or hearing the news. So here’s something I’d like all these keyboard warriors (Yellow Squad, #Duterte Goals, Free Thinkers, include na natin yung Beauty Queen, sama-sama na kayo) to do, talk to one addict personally, an addict who’s walking freely, yung hindi pa institutionalized, di pa narerehab, yung gumon na gumon pa sa droga, yung freshly pang nakayupyop ng droga at bangag na bangag. Convince that person to seek help. If that person peddles, tell that person that you’re gonna report him to the 5-0s and explain how this is going to be better for him/her. Once you succesfully do that, try doing that to every addict in your entire city. If done and finished right, try talking to every addict in your entire region. Once you accomplish that, do that to every drug addict and dependent to our country. Now, try talking to every person you meet about the drug war, talk about what you’ve done, how you helped solving it. Personal, walang patweet tweet o papost post lang, walang naka harang na screen sa harap mo. Kahit kung yung first step magawa mo ng maayos, irerespeto ko na yung opinyon mo, maniniwala na akong katungkulan mong magsalita at kaya mong baguhin ang bansang ‘to. Unless you’re willing to go out there and do something about it in person, you don’t deserve to talk, so shut the fuck up. Resolving this country’s drug problem was supposed to unite us, not divide us.

Move your mind, move your soul, move your body, before you move your lips……… and your finger tips.

Fuck Mar Rue

Through the lines
And rhymes
That keep you grounded
You falter,
Like broken boulders,
Like used up matter.
Through the long walls
And darkened mysteries,
You realized
The heart knows no boundaries.

Short talk #3 – Love, Compromise, Death

R.K.: Uplifting naman ang love, as long as its genuine and true.

Annie Boid: I beg to differ. That statement is pure bullshit. Love, in a way, is a form of identity suicide.

R.K.: ang nega naman. Pano mo nasabi?

Annie Boid: Simple lang. Love, when it is true and genuine, revolves around the concept of compromise. Compromise requires us to give a part of ourselves, to extinguish a part of who we are, a part of what we really, truly and fully want, a part of us, whether big or small, that makes us who we are. You kill a part of yourself for the people you love. That’s truest and most genuine form of love, a death within us. BOOM!!! GUGMA (LOVE) BARS, BITCH!!!

R.K.: *Silence*

– Paminsan-minsan kahit ako nabibigla sa mga pinagsasasabi ko. šŸ˜‚
