The happy and the better life
(Published on the Manila Bulletin's Broken Silence column, May 22, 2007)
I don’t have any plans of permanently leaving the Philippines. There was never a moment in my life that I thought of riding an airplane and stay away from my motherland where I was born and made me realize what life is really all about.

Musings From Lifeby Fur Elise Da Mirage (English | Filipino Translation | Writing | My So-Called Life | Comics/Graphic Literature | Miscellaneous Genre | artist's confession)
They come when they want to
Twirling around their sashes- incense fabricating my vision
Drums roll and beat my pulse as we quest through ingenuity
and I question their given gender
As a woman, God should have sent them as men
Their ritual dance would have been quite an entertainment.
- Fur Elise Da Mirage

LIFE? are you serious enough of your life? we have to because according to L. Ron Hubbard in his book DIANETICS " the Science of a Healthy Mind" that the main goal of a man is to survive. In order for us to live is to survive. Survival is the main thing we are stiving to stay alive. But in life, there are lots of suppresors that we should be avoided. This is what we call maybe a slice of a part of life. not at all times we have good life. It is a normal thing to experienced the ups and downs of life. A life has a cycle to follow, whether we like it or not we cannot stay long here on earth. All life has end-point. just the way it is we have to take life seriously. We have only one life to live and we should live it according to what we believe that could makes us better. living in love is the is one of the secrets of a happy life. Just like in the song "The Greatest Love" we can easily achieve the greatest love of all if we learn to love first ourselves and our very life. We should never to walked on anyone shadow, if we failed and we succeed then it's good at least we live to what we believe.

ANG BAYAN KONG PILIPINASby jacqlinj (Filipino | Writing | Literary Reading | Poetry | Miscellaneous Genre)
ANG BAYAN KONG PILIPINAS
Ang bayan kong Pilipinas
Dati kang lupain ng ginto't bulaklak
Ngayon sa kumunoy ikaw ay nakasadlak
Dati ay may pag-ibig sa iyong palad
Nag-alay ka ng ganda't dilag
Ngayon, pag-ibig nila ay kumupas
Alay na ganda't dilag ay puno ng paglibak
Pilipinas ko, ikaw ay dating minumutya
Ngunit ngayon bakit ikaw ay kinukutya?
Dati'y pugad ka ng luha't dalita

TEARS OF MY HEART
When you had me with your goodbyes
Everyday I walk around with a smile upon my face
I know I gotta move on someday
