a tiny DOT”
 
‘Wars, factions, and fighting,’ said Socrates as he looked forward from his last hour, ‘have no other origin than this same body and its lusts … We must set the soul free from it; we must behold things as they are. And having thus got rid of the foolishness of the body, we shall be pure and hold converse with the pure, and shall in our own selves have complete knowledge of the Incorruptible which is, I take it, no other than the very truth. (Socrates)
 
‘ my true me.. my reality keeps evolving.. it is upon my death that people will know my true me.. my reality!’

a tiny dot
i fought
i won
i come
how i reach
those brilliance
is my reality!
 
i am born
with a purpose
i search
i act
i succeed or
i fail
is my reality!
 
a mango fruit
if sweet
is eaten enjoyed
if sour bitter
thrown to
garbage bin
a reality!

‘evolve’
 
Existentialism Is a Humanism: ‘Il n’y a de réalité que dans l’action. (There is no reality except in action.)’
 
 
‘it is how i have enhanced myself all through the years.. will be my reality as i end my life journey!’
— ade caparas orosa manilah—
 
 
nothing
in darkness
light peeps
leads my way
i react
with lights
c’est moi! (that’s me)
 
reactions differ
yet
actions change
what who how
i am at he end
is my reality
journey’s end!

#1 series / “my great abhorrence
a space of repugnance… “
 
 
it is a cold sunday morning; i woke up so late and my bed being surrounded by mirrors all over, sides and ceiling… i felt nauseated, to see my waking portrait ! – a sense of repugnance engulfs me, this insignificant moment of nothing. _ahhhhhhhhh… i abhor this grandeur setting, feeding my narcissistic whims: a glutton on my own bareness of ugliness.
 
all of a sudden, i am pricked within longings… the duet-songs of the Mayas, the alternate croaks of wild giant frogs, the humming wind carrying the playful sways of bamboo trees, yessssss, my mountain house that overlooks the grand Laguna Lake.
 
laughter wealth power fame.. i get so drunk… the dizzying merry-go-round, suddenly the northern winds changed course; total black clouds loom; my laughter transform to tears; and i limp to face the frightening darkness!’
 
i can’t see no more
fears and tears
have taken over
every single step
i make is a stumble!
can’t do nothing
my breath seems lost
slowly a tiny dot
of light expanded
discover your beauty!
my teary blurry eyes
sense back the gentle breeze
herbs and flowers hummingbirds
the taste of joy… i found your lips!
 
my lov
how in the world
did i lose my mind
busied moi with useless noises
bundles of loud colours
cheap perfumes
oh… abhorring abyss, i surface!
