Desiderata - A poem for all of us


Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann, Desiderata

The end of one, the beginning of another

she decide to call it off, the whole thing.

ask me to walk my way and stop contacting her, that there is no more chance for us.


well have to face the fact and walk a new beginning.

"Dear Lord, I don't know what's gonna happen in future, when everything seems so vague. That there is no clear picture for me to look forward to.

Sometimes I don't know what's real anymore. It's like I got hit by a car and couldn't understand why it hit me.

I just ask for the grace that I will continue to do your will, and not give up with life. Even if the toughest challenges were to happen I am happy that you are always there with me.

You are the person I trust most, through thick and thin you have been with me, and to you this incident is so tiny it is insignificant, and that I should not lose heart because of it.

Yes Lord, plenty of fishes in the seas, as men said, and you've already determined who is the person I'm to spend my life with, thus I do not need to worry bout it. To let you handle such a matter and to make best use of my life is what you will for me.

You've always taught me to be strong, to continue living the faith, and to be a good person. Yet sometimes I failed and my focus went elsewhere due to the loneliness that is creeping in, the stress in the world, and the human weaknesses of mine. I ask for pardon and strength to continue this journey.

Spending eternal life with you, dear God, which is where my ultimate focus should be. Rather than trivial matters on earth that I should stop bothering so much about. As you've said in the Word that life on earth is just a drop of water compared to eternal life which is the Ocean.

Help me be free of bondage, of things that are clinging deep in my heart now, so that I can start anew, to turn over a new leaf.

Help me to go more often to church, and to CG, as I'm losing sight of you more and more due to not attending so often as I did in the past.

Thank you Jesus, thank you God.

Be strong and preservere

I have to be strong and persevere...
I've made my share of mistakes,
I've said the wrong things when I ain't suppose to,
I am confused, yet I have to stay clear.
Forgive, and move forward.
Don't rush, and don't force.
Let the person decide for herself,
as it is not my business to interfere.
I shall try,
and keep trying...
As I know if I don't,
I shall regret for the rest of my life.
Don't give up,
when you know it's not right to do so.
Life is a lesson,
We all learn as we go through.
All I wanna say right now,
is that I'm sorry for the mistakes I've done,
and to tell you,
that I still love you.
Please don't push me away,
till it is till the very last,
and that the answers have been revealed.
As now we are still in the Pandora's Box,
answers have to be unlocked,
questions need to be answered,
and the future needs to be seen.
The storm is still here,
but be calm,
and think sanely,
rationally, and maturely.
And things will pass smoothly.
As it is said,
"This too shall pass."
Newer and better things are ahead of us...
Things that shall be proven and lasts.
