Live with Enthusiasm


Youth is not a time of life;

it's a state of mind.

It's temper of vigor of a will,

a quality of the imagination,  vigor of emotions,

a predominance of courage over timidity,

of the appetite for adventure

over the of ease.


Nobody grows old by merely living

a number of years.

People grow only by deserting their ideals.

Years wrinkle the skins, but to give up enthusiasm

wrinkles the soul.


Worry, doubt, self-distrust, fear and despair,

these bow the head and

turn the growing spirit back to dust.


Whether 60 or 16, there is in every being's heart

the love of wonder, the sweet amazement

at the stars and

the star like things and thought,

the undaunted challenge of events,

the unfailing childlike appetite for what next,

and the joy of the game of living.


You are as young as your faith,

as  old as your doubt;

as young as your self-confidence,

as old as your fear,

as young as your hope,

as old as your despair.


So long as young heart receives

messages of beauty, cheer, courage,

grandeur, and power from the earth,

from man and from infinite,

so long are you young.


When the wires are all down,

and all the central places of your heart

are covered with the snows of

pessimism and the ice of cynicism,

then, and only then, are you grown

old indeed, and God have mercy on

your soul.


"Live everyday of your life as though you expect to live forever."

In Your Eyes


There's a mystery in your eyes

that you cannot hide,

this feeling inside is making you

so high.


The eyes are the window of our soul, open it

up and let me in, to know what's within.


When you look into my eyes I can see

a person in disguise that you cannot deny,

here I am awaiting for you to say

I'm in love with you.

Lihim na Pagtingin

Iyong napapansin ako ay  lumalayo at

hindi kumikibo sapagkat ako'y may itinatago

Bakit ako nagkakaganito, ang isip ko'y gulong-gulo

Mahal kita, pero ako'y naiirita

Pero mahirap tanggapin at aminin,

na tayo'y  magkaibigan pa rin

na ako'\y umiibig sa'yo ng tapat

Maaaring ako'y natatakot

 na mabigo at marinig

ang salitang

"kaibigan lang ang turing ko sa'yo"

Sa pagbigkas mo nito baka ako'y manlumo

Aking nakikita ang sarili'y kaawa-awa

na dapat hindi na sinabi pa ang mga katagang

"mahal kita"

Sa bumabasa ng tula ko, ako'y bigyan ng payo

kung dapat bang ilihim ang aking pagtingin.



I feel so empty inside, do you know what's in my mind

I think now is the time to feel so cold

No one will know, death will blow

closing my eyes will you ever know
