Words by Joyce Aralar
At times I feel like drowning
There was nothing left to do
But to catch one last breath
And hope I can survive for a minute
Another minute, an hour, days, or even months
I prayed hard that someone
Will see me asking for help
And extend a hand
To save me from the mess I have created
As demons of my own continues to haunt me
But no one did
As I was about to completely surrender
I saw a tiny flicker of light, turned into fire
A blinding contrast of orange and yellow that seemed to burn my being
Hesitant at first, I forced to open my eyes
He was there
GOD was there
Flashbacks and realizations hit me all at once
I knew then I am the only one
Who can fight my own demons
See the true light
With His complete guidance
hope you guys like it and this artwork is proudly done on Illustrator CS6
On the way home to Binangonan…
I : Sis, I really need to pee
Sissy : Hold it, we’re almost home
I : No, I can’t. Let’s eat goto, my treat
Sissy : Okay, no problem! But let’s just visit Nemiranda Cafe
I : As long as I can pee
***All because I have to pee, we discovered this beautiful place, ART STUFF 🙂 ***
Can I please chase the lights?
Last year I was given the chance to work for a Poem + Art Collaboration, of course with my one of my artist friend Niel. Both the poem and art received many praises and it was even featured on an Indonesian Online Magazine. Couldn’t be so proud of his work, I was just a chatterbox overflowing with words and I can’t believe someone noticed my poems. Recently, he is working on a project called “Teuthida Love” and I am so happy I was given the privilege to write the third poem! Couldn’t be more excited, above is the teaser of the collaboration we are working together. He also informed me he is working with another artist named Love (whom I am very excited to meet in person). Oh how I adore artistic ones!
These photos were taken last year before I went to Dubai. Of course I chose pink as our group color 🙂 . Intramuros will always be a great place for photowalks specially if you love culture, heritage and old places.
Hoping we can find some time to visit the place again, everyone seems so busy lately.
Nothing can replace old places, times and friends.
