Para sa mga banyagang puro dada, puso satsat, wala namang gawa
Kumilos ka muna bago ka kumutata
Kung tingin mo sa lahi ko ay panay alipin at timawa
Magisip kang muli kaibigan, gamitin ang pinagaralan.

Akoy muling sumusulat, kailangan ninyo kasing mamulat
Na kaming mga Pinoy, hindi tarantado lahat
Alam naming may mali sa pamamalakad, sa bansa naming ubod sadsad
Pero pinipilit naming bumangon, ibinabalik ang pangarap noon.

Ang bawat tingin niyo sa’miy saksak, para bang ako’y isa lang palasak
Nagkakamali ka ng pagkakakilanlan, ako din nama’y mabuting kaibigan.
Tingin ng iba ninyo sa ami’y salot, mangaagaw ng trabaho, ang iba, haliparot.
Opinyon niyo yan, hindi ko kayo pipigilan, pero ngayon, makinig kayo, bunganga ko naman.

Mura man ang bayad sa serbisyo namin, hindi ibig sabihin, kami’y tamad na rin.
Tingin niyo ba, pipili ang mga kumpanya ng taong hindi angkop sa posisyon niya?
Nakikita niyo kasi inaagawan namin kayo ng trabaho, paano kayo uusad, eh puro kayo reklamo?
Tanggalin ang mga banyaga sa inyong bansa, sa tingin niyo, kayo’y giginhawa?
Puros kayo dada, wala namang gawa, panay ang tunganga tapos maninira?
Dyan kayo magaling, sarap niyong itali sa baging.

Sa tuwing makikita niyo kaming nagmamagaling, kalimitan, totoo naman din.
Kung ikukumpara sa inyo, aba, oo.
Paano, ang inyong talino, walang kasamang respeto.
Kayo na ang magaling, kayo na ang mayaman, kami naman ay sanay sa kahirapan.
Kaya naming mabuhay sa kamatis at tuyo, hindi tulad ninyong ang nais lamang, bulsa’y mapuno.
Sa inyong palagay, kapag ang inyong bansa ay biglang humandusay, kanino kayo muling tatakbo, hindi ba sa aming inyong mga kapitbahay?

Madami pa akong bala sa inyong mga banyaga, pero hanggang dito na muna ang aking pagpuna.
Baka naman kapag ako’y kumutata pa, bukas, ako’y damputin na sa rehas.

I’ll get over the feeling one day
Today, later or tomorrow maybe.
Once I get the love I deserve,
Once I found what’s meant for me

Leave the pain, the sorrow
then move on with the past
Used to regret the memory
Now all I want is what’ll last

Once believed in us
What’s there, dreams we wished to be.
Now that you’re gone, you left,
All the feelings come undone for me.

The truth might hurt me now
But one day you’ll see
I’ll get over you and forget what was never we.

stay.

sometimes, crying is your body’s way of saying you’re hurt, that’s enough, stop it.

i used to sing “Thinking of You” for someone before. i thought it’s funny coz I’m already falling for another guy when I am still in a relationship but i know it’s wrong so I stopped the feeling coz i knew it wasn’t right. When that relationship ended, it’s already too late to start with the other guy. Must be karma. Is it?

Being that person who has the power to choose between two people is somewhat good. Coz you never lose. Choose A or B, you win either way. But what if you’re one of the choices? Better yet, if you’re the current guy and you know that your someone still can’t get over their past love? What will you do?

It’s a slap in the face knowing that someone you love is still attached to a previous relationship. But what can you do? I say, you have two options. Either run away or stay. It’s that easy. Run away somewhere far so you can easily detach yourself in the “relationship” and move on. Or stay, be there, risk it all and be a man and stay by their side until all the hurt is gone. Or again, we can always run away, we always have that option.

Being second best is better than being nothing. But it hurts more. A LOT MORE. But if you know you’re in that situation, and you know you really love the person, you just have to accept it, after all, it’s part of the package, all you can do is hope that one day, they realize that you’re there for them, that you’ll do anything for them, that you’re a better person coz you chose to stay rather than leave them when you know they’re still hurting. And then, you hope at that point, they realize that they love you as much as you love them.

i can’t finish this now. well, it hasn’t ended in real life either. i hope it won’t. coz I’m choosing to stay.

A writer of love, dreams,
Faithfulness, all that has been
Composer of rhythm
Loneliness and what once seem

Body is dying
Memory’s a blur
Forget that I exist
Oh please, leave, I insist
Just one last thing
I wish for you to do
Bury me in a love song
Only then will we be through
