Not like any other day because this only comes once every four years.
Something extra for you today
What will it be?
An extra donut, an extra beer
An extra hug for every tear.
An extra ounce of confidence, maybe
Or some extra fries at Jollibee.
However you want to spend it,
May you enjoy each moment.
Yes, I included Jollibee right there. I’m Filipino, it’s pretty much a given 😁
The half moon was shining bright yellow like a golden smile on the night sky.
I smiled inwardly, as the moon often does that to me.
Though not as bright as the moon that’s full,
The half moon still lighted the way for me.
I’ve always been in love with the moon
And it often reminds me that some changes can be beautiful.
I eat when I’m happy
I eat when I’m sad
I eat when I’m angry
I eat when my day was bad
I eat when I’m grumpy
And even more when I’m glad
They say you shouldn’t eat your feelings away
But they’re my feelings, so I’m going to do it anyway 😁
On the inside looking out. Loving their freedom and energy. Sometimes I crave it. But also fear it.
“Put yourself out there”, they would say. I automatically think of being put on display for everyone to scrutinize, to look at. But I don’t want attention. I just want to be seen, heard. There’s a difference.
So, despite the fear I took the step and opened the door. Doing my best to be ready to take on the unknown.
I’d like to think that somewhere in the past or maybe a different life in the future…
You and I exist
Not apart but together
