YOU are DIFFERENT, and that's AWESOME!

You don’t ever need to justify yourself to others. Sometimes you don’t even know the answers to all the why’s. There’s no use to rack your brain trying to explain why you love, like, hate or loathe something. One could be disturbing another could be cute but both would be awespiring to you. The problem with society now is that people want to just be in sync with the norm, too afraid to spread their wings for they might get shoot down or be considered as an abomination. What’s wrong with being an OUTCAST? What’s wrong with being different?

Why do we fear to do the things we love? To dive into greatness and be transformed into the divinely blessed creatures that we are?

God made us according to His image but that doesn’t mean we were made all the same! We were not made to just conform to this world’s twisted standards.

NO! We were made for GREATNESS! NOT for mediocrity!

Don’t let anybody, don’t let any word or not even you, define who you are and be labeled into stereotypes.

Bask into the marvelous gift of your uniqueness. Enjoy every moment, every mistake, every day. Just savor & own who you are!

Truth and Lies

Why do we fear to do the things we love?

To dive into greatness and be transformed into the divinely blessed creatures that we are?

God made us according to His image but that doesn’t mean we were made all the same! We were not made to just conform to this world’s twisted standards.

NO! We were made for GREATNESS! NOT for mediocrity!

Not to just survive but to LIVE!

We often fear the truth but it’s not the truth that we really fear but the thought of not having that truth realized. We succumb to fear because surviving is easier than living. Then, we shrink deeper into indifference because it’s the safest place to be. We build lies upon lies and escape reality to make the days bearable. However, the truth is we are just running away from our own greatness. We refused to hope because to fail at something that is truly important to us would not only devastate us but would place us into the oblivion. We choose apathy rather than love because we had let life numb us by incorrect people that we supposedly “loved”. And so we now stubbornly fight with ourselves and refused to accept the truth because, then, if it’s the truth why is it something beyond our reach? Why is it something unattainable? So we cast it aside and chose the lies because at least there, we don’t hope and we don’t care and we would never fail since it’s the world that we built to safeguard ourselves. It’s the world that prevents love and real happiness from ever reaching us and transforming us.

Masochist Within

In just an instant, devil swarms around you
piercing the heart with thousand needles.
There something flowing from the eyes.
Is it tears? Wiping with the hands,
You noticed it’s red.
You’re crying blood.

The soul is cringed, drying up inside.
Curling up inside but stayed frozen outside.
Oxygen being vacuumed out of the breathing organ.
A lump as big as a giant’s fist is at the throat
which making it hard to even maintain consciousness.

Everything is so excruciatingly and devastatingly painful
that you wished that death will come and take you away.
Questioning reason.
Why you even opened the door in the first place?
Why couldn’t you just stay in that pliant place you’re in a few moments ago?

On the ground, with your knees bended
You poured out your all to the One above.
Praying that this will be all taken away,
That what is now would be a distant memory.
If it’s possible, you’d pick your brain to induce amnesia.

When the world is almost blackening out
a hand pulled you up.
He heard, he always listens, and now had resurrected you.
He saved you, like He always do.
He envelope you with is light and love.

He does it over and over again, untiringly.
He already foresaw the next step.
It has always been the same vicious cycle
But He never grumbled. Never said a word.

A hear-beat happened, and the sun shines on your face again.
Pinkish glow on your cheek.
Life emanating from your eyes.
You are ready to turn on a new leaf.
Fresh strength to take on anything that comes your way.

Despite what had occurred just a while ago,
It seems amnesia really have been induced.
The One that saved you, shook His head in dismay.
He sees you easing and shaking yourself up.

Forgetting Him and everyone else around you,
All your eyes can register is the hole in which you just got out of,
You dive again and come back for more
Of that darkness that almost made you a part of the non-living.
