Saying "NO" to the Wind in the Desert

Its been years since i last saw him. that guy. but maybe it is better this way. staying a world apart. what I used to think I understand, I now realize I don’t. but what I didn’t, i now do.

Sometimes myopic eyes only see a mirage. one moment can be like an entire life, and one person mean a whole world.

But as you pass over the desert, you will find yourself educated. You begin to walk willfully according to the map laid before you by the lord and not according to the wind’s blows. And of these I am sure:

The sun can burn the skin at midday, but a cloud is sure to hover above to protect the sojourner. At night, when all that’s in sight is the all-encompassing sky almost undivided by only a subtle line of gradually fading colors from the vast and seemingly infinite mass of sand, it should feel cold, but by recollection of the fire in the heart of him who is waiting, the pilgrim can never die of the chill.

While beneath the open skies, I did once dream of that life you are living now, I know that as you turn to your bed to sleep every time, you pray to live the life I have. Know then, that I continue to pray for your happiness, if it be the only thing I can do for you as our years come away everyday.

you have to say no to a lot of other things.

........i'm just another writer still trapped within my truth........

i have forgotten about what it is to write...
to catch that in-between the silence and the heart’s beating…
and go about that divide which separates shadow from the ground…
Writing, my first love!
and so, i write. répondez s’il vous plaît.

naling'wan ko na kun pa'no an mag surat...
kun pa'no mahagilap an uya sa tahao kan kasilenciohan asin pag-ibot kan puso...
buda malakop iyan na nagbabanga sa anino asin daga...

An Pagsurat, sakuyang enot na pagkamoot!
biyo logod, ako minasurat. magsimbag ka.
