Daily Prompt: Generation

daily prompt 1

 

I look at my social network feeds and all I see are battlegrounds.

The recent election has caused so much uproar that it has incapacitated me to the point that I can’t process anything properly.

In a day and age wherein everyone’s opinion is right and should be respected, I never felt more at a loss for words.

I feel ignorant and much more of a nuisance. My participation greeted with sarcasm at best or received with a cold reception at worst. During a time wherein every word should matter, I have successfully turned myself into the ass, the clown, the petty child.

So I cower in paranoia, thinking way too much of people’s opinions of me. Even worse, I feel like a chewed up mass of unwanted food; spat out instantly and forgotten. They move on fast. Me, well, I’m still processing.

In a day and age wherein I should feel empowered by my anonymity, I am weakened far beyond help.

To have come so far only to go backwards.

After the election

Magdadaan ang mga politiko at mga administrasyon. Dadating at aalis ang mga unos. Tataas at bababa ang palitan ng dolyar. Dadami ang mga pulong gustong sakupin ng Tsina. Hihina ang mga buto at mamumuti ang mga hibla ng buhok.

Pamilya at kaibigan, kahit anong saglit o haba ng pinagsamahan at pagsasamahan pa, ang nasa tabi mo. Kadamay mo, kasabay mo, kainuman mo; sumusuporta at nagmamahal.

Magkakaiba man ng adikhain at pananaw, alam natin na ang mga balotang sinagutan ay para sa ikabubuti ng kinabukasan nating lahat.

Ma, Pa, Tsong, Tsang, Bossing, Kaibigan. Salamat sa pagboto at pagiisip ng kinabukasan natin. Sama-sama nating haharapin lahat yan. Pa-unti-unti lang.

Mahal ko kayo. ❤

Kape tayo pag minsan.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

 

Before a century, a decade, a year, a month, an hour, and a minute passes, there are those precious little seconds within your day that takes place. A moment in time wherein changes take place.

About the photograph: It was the weekend and I just walked out of our condominium building. I looked up and saw this. The Sun has barely sunk; yet the Moon is already high up in the sky. The colors were far more vivid in real life and, granted that I was using a mobile phone to take a picture, the photograph does not give the view any justice at all.
