Do Not Resuscitate

There’s a certain point in life that we need to say no, stop. Even to the extent of exhausting all our energies and means; that the extraordinary efforts should be dropped and just let things go away, naturally.

Relax.

Then re-think.

There’s an end into everything. Nothing is permanent. Detach. Let go. Move on. DNR.

Kay sarap sariwain
ang malayang kahapon
ang hirap isipin kaylayo ng noon
(tsoodoodoodoodoodooo)
Tama ka nga
walang saysay kung itutuloy pa
hayaan na natin ang bukas
ngunit sa gabing ito
hawakan ang aking kamay
muling sundan ang mga unang yapak
ng ating pagmamahalan
(tsoodoodoodoodoodooo)
Tama ka nga
walang saysay kung ibabalik pa
hayaan na natin ang bukas
minsan nagtatanong kung saan
kailan, paano nasimulan
ang katapusang mahirap takasan
pero huwag na, ibato mo na lang sa ulan
(tsoodoodoodoodoodooo)
Tama ka nga
walang saysay kung itutuloy pa
hayaan na natin
hayaan na natin
hayaan na natin ang bukas
Kay sarap sariwain
ang malayang kahapon
ang hirap isipin kaylayo ng noon

Tama Ka by Eraserheads…

Just save people’s lives… Aryt?

In a world where anything can really happen, we must be ready. Complaining is not an option in situations where we are responsibly involved; where “I” put myself “into”.

I don’t get it when people complain about their jobs; why not just quit?

Today, I heard millions of complaints about busy schedules and how toxic their life could be. Can’t we even be more joyful when we encounter several things to do at work? Cos that’s what we’re supposed to be looking for. That’s what we’re supposedly doing, actually.

And at the first place, we chose the job.  In our case, we chose to save lives. We chose to run around the wards, take care of patients and at times even loose our own safety blankets. It’s a commitment that we should keep for the rest of our lives.

So please, just do your job.

And be happy that you even have one.

I’m Yours

The Script defines sadness. I only get to listen to it if I feel sad, or alone. But no! Not until a friend made me realize, that a song in their self-titled album The Script is not melancholic at all. Actually, it sounds desperately depressing, not until you understand what the story of the song is all about.

I am so loving it right nao. This is for y’all.

You touch these tired eyes of mine
And map my face out line by line
And somehow growing old feels fine
I listen close for I'm not smart
You wrap you thoughts in works of art
And they're hanging on the walls of my heart

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
And though I may not look like much
I'm yours
And though my edges may be rough
And never feel I'm quite enough
It may not seem like very much
But I'm yours

You heeled these scars over time
Embraced my soul
You loved my mind
You're the only angel in my life
The day news came my best friend died
My knees went week and you saw me cry
Say I'm still the soldier in your eyes

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
And though I may not look like much
I'm yours
And though my edges may be rough
And never feel I'm quite enough
It may not seem like very much
But I'm yours

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
I know I don't fit in that much
But I'm yours

Thou Shalt Not Fear

I took my chance, dropped my boundaries; but it wasn’t something mutual, t’was unrequited.

I am not sure if what I did was incredibly brave. I made myself too available and vulnerable. I let ‘detachment’ work but it failed.

I wanna end this insanity, darn it.

Please let it drop away…

…Give me a brand new morning.

But still, I am not going to be afraid.

Have You Ever?

by Brandy

Have you ever loved somebody so much
It makes you cry
Have you ever needed something so bad
You can't sleep at night
Have you ever tried to find the words
But they don't come out right
Have you ever, have you ever

Have you ever been in love
Been in love so bad
You'd do anything to make them understand
Have you ever had someone steal your heart away
You'd give anything to make them feel the same
Have you ever searched for words to get you in their heart
But you don't know what to say
And you don't know where to start

Have you ever found the one
You've dreamed of all of your life
You'd do just about anything to look into their eyes
Have you finally found the one you've given your heart to
Only to find that one won't give their heart to you
Have you ever closed your eyes and
Dreamed that they were there
And all you can do is wait for the day when they will care

What do I gotta do to get you in my arms baby
What do I gotta say to get to your heart
To make you understand how I need you next to me
Gotta get you in my world
'Cuz baby I can't sleep

from 1998 album Never Say Never
