The past and the present


In the darkest of hours
You put your knees up
Hug yourself tight
And get lost in the sea of loneliness

Then again, we are only human
Prone to making mistakes
Prone to fall so easy
Then get hurt like a boomerang

Just remember
Forgive yourself
Let go of all the pains
Push all the worries away

One day,
When you least expect it
The world’s greatness will manifest itself
The darkness you have known will just be a phase

Today, forgive
Tomorrow, love again
Like it’s the first time

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

“She enjoys rain for its wetness, winter for its cold, summer for its heat. She loves rainbows as much for fading as for their brilliance. It is easy for her, she opens her heart and accepts everything.” 

― Morgan Llywelyn, Bard: The Odyssey of the Irish


On our flight back to Manila, I was happy to be seated near the plane window. There’s a certain feeling that I get when I watch clouds move. Yesterday, I got a little surprise, aside from clouds, I saw a rainbow. How lucky can I get right? ♥

We all have our own rain showers and storms (and even thunderstorms) in our lives, but we shall not forget, that there will always be a rainbow after the rain. It signifies renewal, she’s whispering “Hey the clouds may seem dark but look at me, I am beautiful, like you. Never ever give up”.

Things end for a reason, a time of renewal is a time of strength, faith and hope. Forget the past and its web of sorrow. Be strong than ever and make your days count. Forgive yourself for your shortcomings and live like never before.
