Lost in Translation
Straying from one thought to another.
Ask for something greater. Ask for something stronger. Ask for a love that doesn’t bend to sickness, hardships or timing. And fight for it to last. In no way are these easy demands to make of any relationship, but a love is only as great as the circumstances through which it survives.

Happy Unhappy Weekend

It was a rainy Saturday morning, but my family still went to Batangas yesterday to visit our relatives and my Tita who got into a coma. We had no contact with them for days, so we have no idea what was their situation there. Also, we still got no electricity and water at home, so Mama brought with us some laundry because they have ample supply of water. Thanks to  the ever reliable water pumps (poso).

We arrived there around noon time, so we were really hungry already. Good thing they’ve prepared lunch earlier because they were expecting us to arrive around that time. We had Sinigang na BangusInihaw na Bangus, and Adobo. Hay, real food at last, I told myself. It has been a while since my last visit there, so I was really excited to see them. The food was good, too. Everything tasted fresh and yummy. Good food and family= happiness.

But the day wasn’t happy all along. After having lunch, we went to Tito Dante’s (Mama’s brother) house. His wife had hypertension, and was immediately brought to the hospital last Tuesday. She had been comatose since then. But Tito’s family then decided to bring her home. They knew it was harder for Tita to stay in the hospital, plus there was no electricity there, too. 

We were near the house when Tito came and walked towards us. He hugged Mama right away, and cried. In that moment, I knew things were really bad.

 Truth be told, I walked away from the scene. I wasn’t ready to cry yet. Ang sakit kasi sa dibdib ng mga ganoong sitwasyon. 

When we got inside, Tita was lying on a bed. Her eyes were closed like sleeping because she was snoring loud, but in truth, she can’t open her eyes and was actually having a hard time to breathe. It was heartbreaking to see her like that. I’ve had some memories of my Tita Ange and she was always full of energy and smiles. It was such a sad moment. But I did not cried. I fought my tears from falling. I wanted to be strong for them. Instead, I sat somewhere and prayed for her to get well. 

Night came and rain was hard. We decided to go home the next morning and let the bad weather pass first. 

We got home at 9:30 AM. There was still no electricity at the subdivision, although other places and barangays around town already have. I immediately packed my bags and took a bath because I have to go to work today. Minutes before I left, Mama got a text from Tito Dante. The moment she mentioned his name, I knew that was it. Tita already left us. 

Tita Ange, I know you are now with God. You’ll be happy and safe there. May you rest in peace.

P.S. Dear Meralco, Please fix the electric supply in Cavite and Batangas as soon as possible. 

Be safe everyone and may you all have a happy weekend.

You couldn’t erase the past. You couldn’t even change it. But sometimes life offered you the opportunity to put it right.

People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.
