Wisdom to the Unwilling

Photo by Ketut Subiyanto on Pexels.com

It can be very exhausting giving wisdom to those not willing to learn from you. It’s like talking to a brick wall. Pointless.

I do not assume, nor claim to be very wise. Frankly, most of the time, I can be plain and stupid with my decision-making and thought processes. However, I believe that a good and proper discussion can lead to good results. If my knowledge, logic and reasoning stands true after much scrutiny, then it could be correct. If it collapses, then it may be false.

Numb

It all take a bit of getting used to
And the pain will no longer hurt.
It takes a bit of effort,
Then it will blur and fade.

I can’t feel.
I mustn’t.
I must be tough
Like steel.

It’s how I can protect myself,
From all the insanity around me.
From all the things thrown at me,
So I can still be myself.

Is this supposed to be normal?
Do all of you live in fear?
Fear for my every move,
And the consequences near?

Endure, I must, I should not falter.
Outlive, outlast, it does not matter.
Surive, I will, hope for the better.
Or die trying, damn this letter.

Turmoil

In my mind, a tempest brews,
I cannot focus.
The whats, the ifs, the hows,
Clash against each other.

I cannot be calm.
For each step I take can bring harm.
Nothing is safe.
Nothing is sacred.

I am but a husk.
Living, but empty.
Going through the motions of the mundane.
Chaos is a tide I must ride.

There is no order,
There is no rhyme.
There is no reason,
Only danger.

Danger for my self,
Danger for my person,
Danger for my possession,
Danger for my future.

But I must endure.
I will not let this suffering win.
To die is to lose.
To live is to go on in spite.

I must stay still,
For the mind is swirling,
In chaos, never ending
I will…

It Was Good While It Lasted – No More Cartoon Network Art on Redbubble

I received an e-mail today from Redbubble.com, and it was a disheartening one…

Their licensing with Cartoon Network and Adult swim ended, and so, the licensed products they approved will no longer be available after January 31, 2022.

So Nice Soju – Green Grape or Grapefruit? (Philippine Soju)

During the holidays, while my wife grabbed her non-alcoholic sparkling grape juice, I took two soju off the shelf.

So Nice Soju Grapefruit flavor.

Last year, I also bought this as a last-minute decision. I was originally planning to try new flavors this time, but there were limited choices available at the store. There was the original unflavored one, green grape and grape fruit.

Exhausting

My life is being squeezed from me,
Hurray for toxic misery.
Each move, under scrutiny,
We’ll hear darkness’ victory.

My tiny corner, getting smaller,
With bombs all over the floor.
One tiny flinch and it’s all over,
I’m shaken down to my core.

I cannot breath, it’s suffocating,
Eyes watching my every move,
This heavy burden is weighing,
My grief can only prove.

This nightmare is just starting,
I see no end in sight.
This hell is never-ending,
I must endure this plight.

The demons laugh at my despair,
Their glee is in the air.
Respite is found nowhere,
I’m left with pure despair.
