Demise of a Friend - Ramon Bonzo III

Image
I was asked by a classmate to write something, sort of a tribute to a classmate to be compiled with the thoughts of my other classmates about our former classmate, Ramon Bonzo III. I dread the day that I would have to write anything about death especially at our age where we should be stretching the capacity of our limits as a human being. We practically grew up together as being classmates since elementary. He was a teacher's pet, my mom's actually because she was his adviser in kindergarten. She really liked him and she would always mention him to me how polite and courteous he was. He was always neat and his uniforms were always tucked in. He was always very participative in class and the most vivid memory that I have of him was during the story telling competition that we had in our Speech Contest. We both had to deliver the piece, "The Frog Prince". I was sick and tired of reciting the story but with Ramon he gives his best performance every time th

Hiniling ko sa Forces of Nature Na sana bigyan ako ng taong kailangan ko Hindi naman ako aasa kahit kanino, Gusto ko lang ng taong magbibigay ng lakas ng loob ko Na harapin ang hamon ng buhay… Hanap nga ako hanap….yun pala nasa harapan lang kita Di eto na nga pinatulan na nga kita, at ikaw naman pinaasa mo ako Ng pinaasa…. Yun pala mapupunta din naman sa wala…wala kang lakas na ipaglaban ako sa mga taong pumipigil sa kaligayahan mo at kaligayahan ko… At lagi mo pang iniinda na mag asta ako na parang wala lang… Minsan hindi ka din nag iisip no? Hello, saan ka ba nakarinig na Pag ang tao naging malapit na sa isa’t isa eh siyempre mahuhulog Ang loob nito…kung hindi sa mga biro, sa mga pag aalala… Sa ngiti o kahit sa isang tingin…kuha ka na…kuha na ang kiliti mo… Minsan hindi na kailangan magsalita….yakap lang….napapawi na ang lungkot Ang pighati ng dulot ng pakikibaka makaraos lang sa araw na ito… Panalangin na lang ang katapat kung tunay nga ba ang nara

Citadel of Arbil

Image
The Citadel of Arbil ( Arabic : قلعة أربيل ; Kurdish : Qelay Hewlêr ) is a tell or occupied mound, and the historical city centre of Arbil in Iraq . It has been claimed that the site is the oldest continuously inhabited town in the world. [ 1 ] The earliest evidence for occupation of the citadel mound dates to the 5th millennium BC, and possibly earlier. It appears for the first time in historical sources during the Ur III period, and gained particular importance during the Neo-Assyrian period. During the Sassanian period and the Abbasid Caliphate , Arbil was an important centre for Christianity . After the Mongols captured the citadel in 1258, the importance of Arbil declined. During the 20th century, the urban structure was significantly modified, as a result of which a number of houses and public buildings were destroyed. In 2007, the High Commission for Erbil Citadel Revitalization (HCECR) was established to oversee the restoration of the citadel. In the same year, all inh

I tried to assess myself what I have accomplished, achieved, attained and realized at this point in my life. And I think I need to do a thorough soul searching of what I really want in my life. There are dreams or ambitions that need upgrading or better yet just abandon if it's totally worthless to pursue. Life doesn't end when you can't achieve a dream or so it seems right? I guess I needed to be affirmed that sometimes reality bites and stings... Is it fitting to say ouch?

My love I'll never find the words, my love To tell you how I feel, my love Mere words could not explain Precious love You held my life within your hands Created everything I am Taught me how to live again Only you care when I needed a friend Believed in me through thick and thin This song is for you and with gratitude and love *God bless you You make me feel brand new For God blessed me with you You make me feel brand new I sing this song 'cause you Make me feel brand new My love Whenever I was insecure You build me up and made me sure You gave my pride back to me Precious friend With you I always had a friend You're someone who I can depend To walk a path that sometimes bends Without you Life has no meaning or rhyme Like words to a song out of time How can I repay you for having faith in me (Go to *)
