A Message From Marupok To Marupok

Galaxyofunspokenwords' definition of marupok: adj. Filipino term for being soft-hearted; you are most likely marupok if you fall for someone too fast and too hard. Just a simple "hi" would make your legs weak; a simple "i miss you" would make you crumble.

Multiverse-Relationship. Ung Tatlo Pala Kayo Sa Buhay Niya Pero Hindi Niyo Alam Na Tatlo Pala Kayo Sa Buhay Niya. "Loki" Relationship Be Like 😝    
Lately, whenever I wake up in the morning, I look in the mirror and I don’t like what I see. Messy hair, irregularly-shaped eyebrows, dark circles around my eyes, a war among pimples, acne and white heads. Breakouts after breakouts. Flaws after flaws. Not to mention the dark mar...
There's a lot of questions, Cause you gave me reasons. And I don't know what's the intention, So maybe this is just anticipation. Actions speak louder than words, Yet your action leads me to confusion.
When we recall every moment that happened in the past days, months, and years, it was a random event that made our emotions sometimes unexplained. There are sadness and happiness since these somehow do exist. Too many memories were built into our hearts and minds that made us ...
At some point in your life, you will realize that great things will happen when you learned to wait and be patient enough throughout the process of your journey and your growth as well. At times, you'll feel sad, disgusted, angry, fear and that's ok. And when those things came...
Kamusta ka na, ok ka lang ba , anong ginagawa mo mga tanong na gusto ko itanong sayo sa tuwing naaalala kita. Sa totoo lang madalas kita iniisip lagi din ako gumagawi ng tingin sa bahay minsan nga gusto na kitang itanong sa kababatang kapatid mo kung nasan ka kaso di naman ako ma...
Tama na siguro yung maraming panahong nilaan ko. Tama na siguro yung efforts at sakriprisyo. Wala eh, siguro ganun talaga. Masyado kasi akong nagmadali, haha. Akala mo mauubusan haha! Siguro sadyang malupit ng tadhana. Pero yun yung paraan para tayo matuto. Wala namang halo...

Hi! Kamusta kana? Alam ko okay ka. Sino bang hindi magiging okay kapag unti-unti ka ng nakakawala sa taong mahal mo nga pero sa bawat titig mo sa kanya hindi  mo na nararamdaman ang kilig; kundi kirot na lang sa dibdib. Alam ko namang hindi mo ako kakamustahin. Pero ako? Eto, n...

Matthew 15:24 But He answered and said, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

You saw the moon smiling. But, the heart is melting by pain. You saw the moon watching. But, the heart felt alone while walking. You saw the moon shines in darkness. But, the heart brokenness cannot fix by its glare. -Moon Luna

Nakatago sa isip. May munting tinig na bumubulong sa isip. Tila puso din ay lumalakas sa pag pintig. May boses na tila nais na sumambit. Pero teka mayroon nga bang makikinig?
Saram means person. I want to have a balance perception in social media but I can't still avoid self-pity ING, and giving up. Social media displays how flashy you're life is. Share it and let them think themselves what are they doing. Why don't you date, have a shopping spr...
Hi, may gusto sana akong sabihin, Subalit saglit, 'di ko nais na ika'y mabitin, maaari ko bang banggitin, ito'y mula sa akin kung paano nagsimula itong hangarin? Una, pinagdikit ko ang dalawa kong mga palad, At ipinikit ang dalawa kong mga mata, Sabay sambit na sana'y magin...
