- Something Else
i was born and raised a catholic. went to a catholic school from kindergarten til high school. went to church every sunday--even looked forward to it as a child because we always dine out after mass.
but when i reached college, my already faltering faith in my religion shattered. i still believe in God, but i ceased to believe in my religion and all of its traditions and irrational stands on certain issues.
i have opinions that differed from theirs. i am for euthanasia, for death penalty, for divorce, for contraceptives, and for sex education.
i believe that every religion worships the same God--they just call Him with different names. i believe that pagans, and those who believe in gods and goddesses, are not lost souls, but people who exercised their free will to choose whatever they want to believe in, and it's not their fault.
i do believe in the concept of hell, but i refuse to believe that only those people who belong to a certain religion can go to heaven. everyone gets a shot at it.
- The Free King
the king of the jungle, the alpha male, trapped in a cage, found in the zoo. it's looking up, perhaps thinking of the day he'd be able to go back to where he belong.
certainly, not in a zoo, but in the savannahs, where he belongs. where he is supposed to live with his family. he's thinking, will he be the alpha male or the jealous lion? will he live by the principle, "hakuna matata"? will he "live and let live"? or will he succumb to the predator-prey relationship which is prevalent to undomesticated animals?
perhaps however he would live his life outside, he would be happy. he would be happy because it is his choice. and nothing beats the happiness caused by being free.
- Music is love
i listen to them. i sing them.
this song describes my current relationship status, and it has been describing it since i was born. i never had a boyfriend since birth. a real one. i think about this someone a lot. and sometimes i wonder, if he's thinking about me too. i wonder what he's doing as of the moment, what are his hopes and dreams, his aspirations, his hearts desires, his pains, his heartaches. i wonder if he's looking for me too. i wonder if i have known him for so long, but we haven't realized it just yet that we are meant for each other.
often, i stay in my room, write letters of love to him. in those letters, i would tell him how much i wanted to meet him and be with him. i would tell him how my day went on, how i wish he's with me so he could hold me tight to make me feel better during those bad times.
and then i cry. because he's still not here with me.
the lyrics of the song speaks for itself.
"you'll get a long with a little prayer and a song... lit your head. baby don't be scared, of the things that could go wrong along your way. you'll get by, with a smile."
aside from the fact that this is a beatle song, i love this because this song reminds me that i don't have control of everything. to just let it be. that whenever i feel alone, incompetent, jealous, hurt, handicapped, i just have to let it be and savor the moment because i wouldn't feel this way if i don't learn from all those that i felt and experienced.
