Going Back to my Passion Part 1

Laro Tayo

Ang mga batang nagtatakbuhan Bitbit-bitbit ang pares ng tsinelas Sa dalawang palad na nakabukas Kasabay ng mga ngiting sagad-sagad Mistulang walang problemang inaalala Kundi ang matapik ang susunod Magiging taya at magsisi-hagulgol Sa nakatutuwang pagtilapon Ng kaibigang natalisod Mapupuno ang kalsada Halakhak, patutsyada't sigawan Ng mga musmos na nag-uunahan Upang matapos ang laro ng buong … Continue reading Laro Tayo

The smell of old, thrift shop books are intoxicating, and yes it's strange but I sniff through some of the pages. It's just me 😉 Every reader … Continue reading Books for an Old Soul

Lucky Star

A lucky star for one night Can brighten even the saddest child Across the room at one corner there A heart pounding, praying well Though time flies by quickly The dream made a fool of the innocent Cruelty faced the lucky star It's a fake, cried the child Wish and hope to a distant light … Continue reading Lucky Star

DAY 6 Memories of My Forgotten Childhood
