What Color is Us?

Colors of blue and black

is what you painted my heart on a faithless night,

words and stories that was shared

wrecked a piece of my trust that has long been scared.

Previously ‘ tis unscathed and strong

now left unsure and dismayed,

wondering if there’s a way or a redemption of some sort

to our black and blue promises that used to mean more.

…I had a vision I could turn you right
a stupid mission and a lethal fight
I should have seen it when my hope was new
my heart is black and my body is blue. – The Cardigans

Pagaspas ng Isipan

Nakatanga, nakatulala
isipa’y naglalakbay sa kaligayahang natamasa

Nagpipilit, nagsisikap
inaalala ang mga ngiti at talatang binigkas

Nagsasaya, minsa’y nagdurusa
pagka’t sa liliw ng musika na lang ito mahahanap

Kaya’t…

Sa kailaliman ng pagtulog at mapusyaw na panaginip
doon muling naapuhap ang binuong daigdig
kaulayaw sa lungkot at mga hikbing ninoman di nadinig
nagbabasakaling sa pagsilip may paglingap na madinig.

Everything grows rounder and wider and weirder, and I sit here in the middle of it all and wonder who in the world you will turn out to be.  ~Carrie Fisher

What is the essence of being a woman?

“Just being a woman is God’s gift that all of us must appreciate. The origin of a child is a mother, and is a woman. She shows a man what sharing, caring and loving is all about. That is the essence of a woman. ” – Answer of Shusmita Sen, crowned Miss Universe 1994
