Plus

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 😁

Half Moon

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.

Hello Out There

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.
