You Will Understand Someday…

Sitting in the meadow, you’re crying Reminiscing the days with your father. Moments thought that were long buried, You think you are alone, forever.   A faintest whisper is carried by the wind, From your father’s lips to your ears, “Dearest Child, be strong and kind.

Snow So Like A Dove

  The stinging cold she felt, As she lay in a snow that never melts. She tried to crouch to warm herself, Her lips too numb to cry for help. Oh a glimmer of hope, she wished she has, But too troubled to think ‘cept her haunted past. Where were her parents? Where was her…

One More Wish

Verse 1: The cannon fires and lives are lost, In a sea that never ends. There you lie with blood and gore, Amongst your fallen friends.   With a picture close at heart, Every second you’re apart, Where you lay, still and dying, A country you were defending.   Chorus: Love, once left, never more…

If I could be like this…

Tiny drops of rain continued to fall, winds howled, and leaves danced on the late evening of July 2023 as a newly-graduated young maiden continued to type as fast as she could, wrinkling her brows as she tried to express her imagination into words. This was the second book she had made right after turning…

A LOVE WORTH MORE THAN GOLD

“Dad”. A son’s first hero and a daughter’s first love. Tears were spilling out of her eyes as she watched her dad’s coffin being lowered. It had been a long 5-year fight between her and the cancer. In the end, she reached the stage where only a new heart could save her. Why? Why did it…

A mother’s negligence

A baby girl was seriously punctured in her chest last Wednesday afternoon. Authorities say a 2-month-old girl was seriously injured after being bitten by her family's dog, but the injuries do not appear to be the result of aggressive behavior. The incident happened around 5 p.m. Wednesday along the unit block of Concetta Court in West…
