“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes, a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king”

-Bilbo Baggins

*Suilad mellyn!

My last post was four days ago and I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything new. My brain cells are just not working well right now.

I can’t come up with a good poem to share, hence I’ll share a poem from one of my favourite authors instead.

The poem was written by Bilbo describing Aragorn. I love this one as Aragorn is one of my favourite (if not, my most favourite) character from LOTR (Lord of the Rings).

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien or better known as J.R.R. Tolkien is a genius in so many ways. He created his own language and created a world of masterpiece that engrosses generations of old and new.

I’ve just started reading the Silmarillion and I can’t wait to read further. I have been reading on some of the characters that Tolkien created and I am in awe with how well he’s come up with them.

As a guide to Tolkien’s masterpiece, I’ve recently subscribed to this awesome YouTube channel that’s all about Tolkien’s works. I recommend you guys checkout Men of The West YouTube page and checkout videos about character histories and other tales. I’ve provided a link below so you can check it out 😁.

I hope you guys enjoyed the poem. ‘Til then earthlings!

Snow Moon

Gazing up in the sky, I saw a bright light.

It was beauty I cannot deny, it was such a wonderful sight.

Then the moon hid behind the clouds

As if playing hide and seek.

Misty clouds acting like shrouds

Making the moon look sexy and chic.

It was a sight to behold, it was a sight to see

A story that needed to be told, about the moon and its beauty.

Cruel

The world is cruel sometimes

For here I am loving you

Yet there you are, loving her

Batanes

On April 24 to 27, 2018, my friends and I went to Batanes. It’s at the tip most of the Philippines and much closer to Taiwan. I’ve always dreamed of going there as it is not an easy place to get to. Here’s a video of the adventures we had.

The life you lived was exciting

Your energy was fascinating.

Your voice was one of a kind

Not easily duplicated, not easy to find.

.

And then there were the sad times

The lows came like waves

You struggled, didn’t you?

Despite everything, you felt lonely still.

.

But you found your way

Before you went away

And even when it’s been many years since,

The memory of you will live forever.

Hey Mom

I fixed my coffee, work was due again

Then I heard familiar steps coming down the stairs.

Dressed in her night gown,

She limped slowly down the stairs since her feet hurts again.

She smiles sleepily upon seeing me

I greet her good morning as I hug her tight.

She’s older and frailer now

So different from her younger years.

I ask, “Hey mom, want some coffee?”

As we slowly start our days.

How Is The Heart?

It formed and grew

Learned to love and trust

Learned to fall

.

.

.

.

.

And ultimately break

.

.

.

.

.

Learned to stand up

Be strong and move on

Learned to be okay

Be whole

By being on its own

Sa imong adlawng natawhan
Gi ampo nako nga ikaw mabulahan
Nga hinaot, ikaw malipayon o inahan.
Salamat sa imong pag atiman
Ug pag amuma kanamong tanan.
Gipangga ka namo todo-todo, inahan!
Malipayong adlawng natawhan.

On your birthday

Blessings is what I pray

Hoping you are happy, oh mother dear.

Thank you for taking good care of us

And for loving us.

We love you so much, mother!

Have a happy birthday.

To My Nephew

An innocent child

A heart that is wild

We just want you to survive and see you grow

Be still my love, our love we will show

And all will be well in time my dear

I pray to God to wash away my fear.

We cannot wait to see you

Know we are here for you

The dark cloud may have made us blue

But know, we will and forever will love you.

Dad’s The Best

He shared joys and laughter 

Picked us up, dusted us

He was strong, the real Superman!

Now he’s frail

Old and slowing down

Time for us to return the favor

For dad, the best
