The Sailboat


Have you ever thought about turning back time?

Because there’s something you want to change some things in your past?

Because if you can, it will make you feel better?

Because you think mistake isn’t okay especially when it hits you hard?

Because you feel hopeless?

Because your chest is heavy and you want to unload what’s in it?

And you wish…

“I shouldn’t have… said it… done it…

Like that how you control a sail,

You grope the rope… tight… loose…

Turn the sail about and go back where u came from.

But you see,

Before a sailboat can successfully reach back home,

It may encounter a rough sea… Stillness…

Eventually, your shore is near your reach to explore.

Finally, you sigh…

For relief, that you came back safe,

For joy, that you still see life ahead,

For hope, that strength doesn’t betray you,

For confidence, that you’ve surpassed rough, that rugged trip,

Smile, you became an experienced sailor in your own time.

The Light

The light unfolds darkness…

Serves as a guide through tenebrous depths, where despair is its ally.

Light is a sign of hope…
When obscurity curls on in us,
When fears eats us out,
When angst cast somber feelings.

Tis’ the light that makes our vision possible,
To see beauty in little illumination,
To appreciate life at its dawn,
To love yourself if you’re alone.

There you’ll be,

The light of day,

The compass of hope,

Shine yourself, you’re a light of your own.

Angel Investor

Angel Investor? I never heard such a word before, until I needed someone to help me to raise a fund for my capital requirement of my new business venture.

Although I may have browsed online sites about it still, I don’t know if it’s a reliable source of capital as you really don’t know the people you’re dealing with.

Currently, there’s this one company which offers a secure loan in the form of a surety bond. As per company policy, after you receive their approval notice you will then, deposit a 10% from the approved loan as your surety bond.

I am actually hesitant to complete my application as I may not be ready for risky outcome if I borrow a huge amount for my needed capital. Let’s say for example, I need a 10,000,000.00 pesos loan I am obliged to give them 1,000,000.00pesos before I can get the whole amount.

Unfortunately, the same surety bond requirement is my rolling capital for my existing business and I can not risk it for something I am not sure of.

While, I was writing this article, I’ve searched the said company and voila! It’s on the list of the companies which are fraudulent. Will be posting and sharing you the link here next time for your reference.

It’s complicated

Heart stings…
Everytime you send me a message.

Eyes become teary..
Every time you say you love me.

Which I happen to know,
It’s all for a show…
