from your judgmental eyes.
I was not being “夸张” with my Ps and Qs, but rather being appreciative of what people around me have done for me, despite it being an inconvenience to them.
This is something that you probably will never understand, at least not for now, and that is alright.
You and I were brought up differently and we were faced with different challenges and scenarios. In your eyes, what I am doing may come across as insincere, but I meant every word I said.
So the question now is this: who are you to dictate what I should or should not say?
"You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat." - Romans 14:10
Impartiality does not exist.
We cannot completely ignore the things said in silence
You may be able to do so but as for me, I am weak.
I am the weakest of all.
Go on now, shoot me.
Kill me with one blow.
With those vile lips of yours.
Your wicked stares.
Your endless gossips
After giving my future much thought, I have come to a realization that I want to own a really cool CD+cafe shop/store, while saving the world at the same time.
I have absolutely no freakin’ clue.
I love music. I love coffee. I love volunteering. I don’t see why I can’t mix all those three and do something with them.
Now, comes the hardest part: How do I get there?
I am temperamental.
I cannot handle stress well.
I crave for attention.
I get upset easily and when I do, I blow up.
I tend to say a lot of hurtful things when I am mad.
Not many people can handle me at my worst, except you.
You, the one who listens to my rant.
You, the one whom I throw my tantrums at.
You, the one who truly understands.
You, the one who is patient.
You, the one who loves me unconditionally.
You, the one I love.
Thank you mommy, i am blessed to have you.

leaving a legacy.
We start out small. Not everyone is born with a silver spoon in their mouth. We work hard, we take chances, we seize every opportunity that we can get our hands on.
Along the way, we are served with platters of hurt, rejection and hostility. We face seemingly endless challenges. Countless of doors are slammed in our faces; but that does not stop us from moving forward. We refuse to back down. We rise above the pain. We rise above what we are. We overcome the highs, the lows and the in-between. We become great.
I refuse to just be “me”, the here and now. I refuse to accept the life that I have been dealt with. I was born for something bigger than myself. We are all destined to be great.
Go out, be brave, and grab your dreams. For what is life if we don’t live it to the fullest?
I am going to let my goals and my success and my accomplishments be the things that define me.
NOT my outer appearance; NOT the fact that I am visually impaired; NOT the fact that I have this syndrome that no body knows what it is.
a dose of love.
Elizabeth Ann Velasquez (TEDxAustin Women)
Throughout the whole 22 years of my existence, love has managed to show its face in various ways.
I see it in the eyes of my mother.
I see it when I look at my brother.
I see it in embraces, anytime, anywhere.
I see it in volunteering.
I see it in my favorite things.
I see it in church.
I see it among my friends.
I see it when I pray.
I see it in reunions.
I see it in children.
And I see it especially in you.
In the way you always seem to know.
In the way you care.
In the confidence that I have in you.
In the secrets that I tell you.
In the videos taken.
In the Tango calls made.
In the time zone difference.
In every “goodnight” and "good mornings".
In every "hey, what’s up?"
In the reassurance that you provide, whenever I voice out my insecurities.
In our discussions.
In our talks about the future.
In everything that we have done, and are going to do.
I see it in you.
I am blessed to have you in my life, mi amor eterno.
You have shown me that it is okay be scared, to feel insecure.
Your reassurances have taught me to trust again.
You have given me one of the best gifts a girl could ever ask for: love.
Muchas gracias, mi tesoro, mi querido.
Tu es mi sol para siempre.
Yo se que Dios es real, porque El mi dio usted (:
Yo te amo, mi cielo!
But I won’t let melancholy play me for a fool.
Like dogs, we listen and obey.
I nod my head, but deep down inside,
You have no idea how much I want to run away.
Kindly unspoken, you showed your emotions.
You pretend to be noble.
Yes, you do everything right.
and as for me, I am always wrong.
In the days of my folly, I follow your lead.
I tried defending you.
I thought greatly of you.
But alas, I was wrong.
And silence speaks louder than words
I see you, the way you act.
I know now, true person that you are.
I won’t be your fool anymore.
This is the last time I’m telling you this.
This is the last time I’m telling you why.
You break my heart in the blink of an eye.
