BUNGA NG PANALANGIN

It may not seem that you are moving right now, but when God says that I promise you this, He keeps his promises because He is not like anyone else. He is God and He keeps His promises. Waiting is something not all of us are really fond of doing. As the years go by you start t...
Dear BW,   Blessed day to all of you and sa mga followers nyo! Hoping that you help me lalo na sa nararamdaman ko ngayon.   Itago nyo nalang po ako sa pangalang “Diego”. Ako po ay isang law student and eto po yung kwento ko.   Sometime in July 2021, saktong katatap...
My first love, you have taught me a lot of things about love. You set my foundation about it. You showed me how painful it can get and how much pain I can take before I give up. You taught me how exciting each day can get just by merely seeing your presence. You taught me how to ...

They say, LOVE IS A CHOICE, a DECISION that we need to make, not just a feeling. I guess it's true. Because I am choosing to fight for us, I am choosing to love you, and I am choosing you, even though I haven't met you yet. How? By waiting... Waiting season, so far, is th...
Patawad kung isip ko ay walang katahimikan. Patuloy ang sigaw ng mga magugulong larawan. Mga lugar na hindi ko pa kailanman napuntahan. Na nagbibigay sa akin ng sakit na hindi ko maintindihan. Pinipilit kong alisin pero naririto pa rin. Pangamba na mangyari lahat ng isipin. Suma...
Makalipas ang humigit kumulang siyam na buwan, sa wakas nagkasama na tayo. Iba ang tibok ng puso ko habang nakatitig ako sa ngiti mo, sa mata. Di ko maipaliwanag ang tibok ng puso ko sa bawat yakap at dampi ng labi mo. Ito na yung matagal na nating hinihintay, naudlot man noong M...

If people could be just honest as they should be, wala sigurong masasaktan sa dulo at magiging talo sa huli. Ikaw ung nanligaw, pumasok sa buhay ko, at nagbitaw ng mga pangako mga salitang pagkakapitan ko. Muli nagtiwala ako pero sa huli bigla kang naglaho. For some reason, my he...
We are total strangers yet we clicked. I don't know if its just me but I guess I find comfort while talking to him. Minsan lang ako magkagusto at mag-first move pero siguro wala talaga. Ako nakipagkilala (virtually) sa kanya. We became friends and became each other's constant fo...

Most of the time we are afraid of commitments. We don’t want to be tied to something. We always want to have easy access to the EXIT door just in case things don't go as planned. I am afraid to marry, but that doesn’t mean I won’t. I want to start my own family, one that is secu...
Growing up especially during our teenage days, we were so eager to be a part of big groups, be with all kinds of circle we can think of and having that mindset that we’re “cool enough” if we are friends with everyone else.  We would join every organization and club available at ...
My moments being single is for me alone. It is a gift and I cherish it. I don’t want anything or anyone to steal it away from me. It is a precious, definite, and fragile chapter of my life. And I should strongly be on guard while it is still mine. Because there will surely come a...
Here are some borrowed words, Since I have an empty stock. I saw her, alone in the twilight. Her golden locks, rocking in the Wind cradle, Lips parted, giving way to a Sugar breath, She stared at the horizon. Birds flew twittering by, Leaving the ...

I was really into him, he's a good guy. He approaches me showing me all his pure intentions. He even introduced me to his family. I even said "Lord siya na talaga" yung tipong akala mo siya na yung icing sa ibabaw ng cupcake mo. He will be the man who will wait for you while walk...
Last monday this week, natapos ko nang ayusin 'yong gitara ko! Actually sa tita ko talaga 'yon pero nandito sa bahay namin. Standard Arena guitar: 'yon bang madalas dala-dala ng mga estudiyante tuwing papasok sa eskuwela para may magamit pang-jamming kapag walang klase. Simple la...

Tama na, kasi hindi na pwede. Simula pa lang kasi hindi na talaga maaari, ako lang tong pilit nang pilit kahit alam kong mali. Alam kong darating ang panahon na kahit subukang ipaglaban kung ikaw sukong-suko na...bibitaw at bibitaw ka talaga. Hinayaan ko na umikot ang mundo ko s...
