My Poetic & Artistic Mind
Im not good in poetry and arts!
But for the past years, I tried to develop it and did write poems that express my emotions and thoughts – my dreams, my fears, my love, my compassion and my open-mindedness. I also tried to do my own creative work thru sketching and drawing and show my appreciation of what Mother Earther can offer to us. Some of my creative writings are already posted in my existing sites, but it is worth posting it here again.
Hope you will enjoy this page as well.
Updates: I also created a blogsite to feature my favourite poems, quotations, etc… CLICK HERE.
This is one of my favourite poems written when I was in Australia. This is the link, Existence!
Time Line… This is another poem which I wrote early in the morning. Sometimes, it is easy for me to write down my thoughts when Im inspired and looking back for the things that Ive accomplished for the past days. Well, it is something good for the start of the New Year… Time Line tells me my past, present and the future!
Yesterday will always be the past
While today will always be the present
And tomorrow will always be the future!
Yesterday is the start of today
While today is the future’s beginning
And tomorrow is the end of today!
The day before today is the past
But the day after yesterday is the present
While the day ahead of today is the future!
The past is a good place to visit
But the present is a better place to live
While the future is the best place to go!
Some of my newest sketches drawn from the time I arrived in Northern Ireland in September 2005. I have no time to do more of these drawings due to my hectic skeds with my university work. Hopefully I can do it often in the next few months to come.
Paano mangarap ang dakilang dukha?
Wika nga nila’y isang kahig ’sang tuka
Sa masalimuot na sandaigdigan
Tanging anak-pawis nitong sambayanan.
Paano mangarap ang taong mayaman?
Lahat ng kailanga’y nasa paanan
Alahas, pera, damit, at mga pagkain
Samakatuwid walang alalahanin.
Paano ba mangarap ang isang mangmang?
Di nakapag-aral nang mataas na antas
Upang iguhit sariling kapalaran
Ngayon, bukas, sa taun-taong daraan.
Paano mangarap ang may kapansanan?
Sa kanyang katawan, kanyang kaisipan
Kung tutuusin, walang silbing nilalang
Bagama’t sila’y bahagin ng lipunan.
Paano ba mangarap ang mga ulila?
Walang nag-aalaga’t nag-aaruga
Maga ambisyon sa panaginip na lamang
Buong tatanggapin ang kahihinatnan.
Laging nakikintal sa puso’t isipan …
Panahong nakalaan – ang kinabukasan
Ang mga pangarap, maisakatuparan
Ang buong tagumpay nawa’y makakamtan
