I just turned 25 today. I am on my second degree. I don't have any work experience. After College, I went straight to pursue another degree. Technically I don't have any source of income. I only rely on the allowance I receive from my mom and sister. For several reasons, I only got the chance to travel outside my country this month. One is because I'd rather save my money for more practical use and I didn't want to burden my mom with my travel wants. They are already providing for my needs in School. I think it would be too much to ask for any more than that. I would like to tavel to other countries. I'd like to engage myself to different cultures. I've been to Singapore first week of this month. And I loved how it felt to travel somewhere new. I feel renewed and it made me want to travel more often. I hope I get funded to pursue my dream of travelling. Thank you! God Bless you all! All glory to God.
I have here a simple poem. I wrote this. But I'm not a poet really. I just tried to write and this was what I got. I don't know if this makes sense. Reading it again after writing makes me question myself "Am I in deep pain? How come I don't really recognize it? Who hurt me?" It felt like I have been hiding some hurtings inside of me.
THE LADY IN RED
The lady wears red dress,
that sets aside the shine of others.
Red is her favorite,
apparently strong and beautiful.
You should see her really,
your day will brighten up than ever.
If you try to see now,
deep inside her is a fading soul.
Bare foot she could walk great,
enduring the pain of loneliness.
One cannot even tell,
but she really is wanting some love.
Tomorrow she sees,
beauty that love shall bring within her.
Fleeting beauty is,
she knows love is the same, just the same.
Soul although fading,
does not really show- not to see it.
If you try to see now,
you do not see but feel rather right.
Close your eyes and feel now,
the lady in red desires to live.
Live a life she would love,
knowing she will die with smiles around.
As you can now tell,
the lady bloomed into a woman.
Yesterday wasn't good,
making her doubt the future she has.
But needless to say,
she has now blossomed to beauty.
Beauty with a beau,
she realized to be what she needs.
What she really needs,
Beau that she knows to make her rejoice.
She did not give up,
which makes her love herself from then on.
