    Soft Breeze
    by moonlight butterfly

    [You know what... sometimes I wish I could just write and write and write… until my brain drained off of all the ideas…and my heart finally becomes numb. I don’t wanna feel no more. I’m tired already… my head is always aching… I can’t seem to focus on one thing… I am so lost…]

    I wonder how it all began
    We were strangers back then, and still
    I never thought I would feel like this
    Such a feeling I never thought I’m still capable of
    After the many years of crying
    When some lunatic broke my heart
    And just a simple hello from you, stranger
    You brought the broken pieces back
    And it seemed like; you’re not a stranger to me after all
    I tell you things I never thought I would tell anyone
    My heart beams with joy every time you are around
    Just by knowing you, I came back to life
    From the tempest I never thought I would have surpassed
    Every moment I spend with you is a lifetime of bliss
    The flowers are all in bloom
    I never saw the sky so clear
    Or the stars so bright
    Since you walked into my life
    I am all the more surprised that the little day-to-day talk we share
    Brought about a tremendous change in me
    That I would ever get to know how to smile again…
    I never felt my heart beats so fast every time you call my name
    Or my soul quivers each time you show perfect care
    And after a long time, finally, and again
    I can’t believe myself but I think I have fallen for you
    I think I’m in love with you
    I love you…
    But stranger, now, where are you?
    Now that I need you
    Now that I long to share the laughter with you
    The happy moments of my life only with you…
    And right when one is the loneliness number
    During my saddest moments that I long for your warm embrace to comfort me
    Have you gone out of my life completely?
    Did you leave me too just as what he did to me before?
    And so, shall I ask God the same question again…
    Why do I always fall for the wrong person?
    Why do I love someone…who is not meant for me after all…?
    Just as when I longed for someone to stay…
    You left me like the soft breeze one evening
    It was only yesterday that we exchanged hellos and now
    …not even a goodbye.

    [Now that I’ve sighed all up…. I feel much relieved…=)…]

  • Lately I find my self in a state of absolute chaos…

    Well…I think I’m just out of my league lately…I’m not even myself.

    My friends would often joke about how stupid I stare into nothingness, as if waiting for something to fall from the sky! I guess I am…though nothing that I know of yet.

    I’ve always wondered about the purpose of my existence… what in the world am I here for??

    But having thought of this…something came up in my mind. Perhaps that is my mission after all…ya’ know, to figure out my purpose. Sounds quite absurd huh? See how a messed up mind works!! Ha-ha! I said so because…my lifelong search for the truth about my existence in this world provided as a fuel that kept me going all along. Just the mere fact of accepting inside me that I have something to live for in this world that I have yet to find out keeps me going on… and this what gives my life its meaning.
    Ever since I was a child, I have started wondering: why did I have to live if I would soon have to die? Of course people would answer… “You are here to make the best out of what God has given you.” That I know. But how would I be able to know if my best is already enough? I believe each and one of us has a mission in this world, a mission that we try to fulfill during the course of life. Life, technically, is the span of time from being born to being dead. Whatever path we choose – whether the longest yet safest route or the fastest yet unpredictable path – we all lead to the same end. Death. But the possession of something to look forward to in the future, a sort of vision on how we are going to see ourselves someday gives us at least something to enjoy as we take life’s journey.

    Life’s too short. That is if you’re an optimist. Life’s too long… that is if you haven’t figured out yet what drives your life into motion. And that what makes life boring…when you think as if everything’s just the same and nothing unique is going on around you. Life, definitely, without a purpose is dull. That’s why we have family and friends around us. We may all be struggling in our own ways, but together we make a difference. And we realize that life is worth living after all…

    And until I finally figure out my purpose in this world…I would remain the same as the person that I always have… I will continue with the quest until I reach the end, attain my final goal and eventually…receive my rewards. Admit it; we do something when we know there is a reward awaiting us in the end.
    “I’m going to pass the exam so I could watch the television the whole week!”
    “I would try my best to win the match so everyone would be proud of me”…See, that is how people are geared. So it is but healthy to keep something to look forward to always. And lastly, always keep our faith in God, for He will guide us through the right track – toward the destiny He had long set for us.

  • The Da Vinci Code - a certified hit!

    I was really grateful when my friend, Deanne, finally lent me her book - The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. It costs almost $ 8 – more or less 400 in pesos. Since she’s the only one in our class who has that book, and I believe it is sold out already, most of our classmates literally “fall in line” to borrow it from her to be able to read the book. And they would end up talking about how fascinating the book really is.

    The book tells about a murder of the four senelauch of a secret organization, Priory of Sion, who were the keepers of the greatest secret in the world there is – the location of the most coveted “Holy Grail”, and Sophie’s quest to unveil the secrets about her family that had long been kept. With Robert Langdon being mistaken guilty of Jacques Sauniere’s murder, Sophie’s grandfather and held under observation by agent Fache , Sophie found herself fleeing inevitably with Robert – brought together by Sophie’s grandfather’s last encoded message: PS: Find Robert Langdon
    With Robert Langdon’s knowledge of symbology and Sophie’s expertise with cryptography and code-breaking, together they began the quest to uncover “The Da Vinci Code”.

    Well, I’d be spoiling the entire thrill if I’d tell the whole story right away. And those who have read the book already, I believe, know just how great the book truly is. It’s an exceptional work of art. A first of Dan Brown’s books – a series of Robert Langdon mystery. His other books include: Angels and Demons, Deception Point and Digital Fortress , all comparatively well-researched. I think Columbia Pictures are now currently working on the “big screen” version of the book that will be starred by the acclaimed Hollywood superstar Tom Hanks.

    Though it is a novel, and I believe, falls under the category of fiction , I find most of the topics discussed on it are of pure facts (and pointed out by the author himself). I guess only the characters are fictitious but the rest – the setting, the issues discussed et cetera are true. Indeed they are.

    Hmmm… instead of babbling all about it… I’ll just let you hear about it straight from the author himself on his personal website >>> DAN BROWN
    The site also provides a picture of the author and actual images of the setting of the story, at the “Da Vinci Code Gallery”. I hope you wouldn’t try to take a peek if you haven’t read the book yet. Gah, you’d miss all the fun! Imagination is a big thing. ^_^

    Also, if you really are one hell of The Da Vinci Code fanatic, you would want to try their WEB QUEST and test your skills in puzzle-solving and code-breaking! However, there is an older version of that quest – THE ORIGINAL DA VINCI CODE QUEST that offers as much fun!
    The quest is pretty head-rocking ya’ know… so I’m giving out a helping hand… well, not quite.

    But wait!!!! (don’t check the succeeding site unless you really feel hopeless already because I ASSURE YOU the quest is not that darn easy! Somehow I was stuck in the middle, unable to unbreak the code for the last gate… he he) Well, somebody has so excellently broke the code for the two quests!!! ALL HAIL!! and offered the LIST OF ANSWERS to the quests.

    But then, try to answer it first! Test your wits! It’s fun, trust me, and really intriguing and mind-boggling or should I say,,, mind-squeezing?? Haha! Good luck ya’ll folks!

    So now I will leave you guys with this quote that I’ve read from my Speech Communication book which most aptly adapts the whole point of the book regarding the bible controversies and the anomalies of the Roman Catholic Church as pinpointed in the story…

    “What you do speaks so loud, I can’t hear what you say”

    ‘Till then! Dan Brown rules! Two thumbs up!! Astig! m/
