Hilarious: Circumcising Me

I’ll begin by saying that I admire Mikey Bustos so much. All of his videos are hilarious. He does it again by rendering his own version of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me.”

Circumcision is a tradition in the Philippines. Males are encouraged to undergo circumcision for health purposes. It is a good thing, but most boys are teased because of it. Boys usually have to wear skirts to feel more comfortable after being circumcised.

Inspiration: My Father Lies

I watched this video by accident. I was just scrolling through my Facebook feed when I clicked on a random post by accident. However, it was more of a blessing than an accident. The video is worth watching. I have seen a lot of inspirational and emotional videos before. But every time I view one, I can’t help but share it.

This video is titled “‘My dad’s story’: Dream for My Child.” It was uploaded by MetLife Hong Kong in YouTube.

Random Words My Thoughts Formed: Little Prince

Deep inside where the stars align
Stands a prince
Pure of innocence
In a place where chaos lives
He breathes a life
Of wonderful words
Look at those eyes
Nothing to see here, Prince
Where is the light?
You ask
To guide a little prince
Ask him a question
But the words he speak
Tells the truth
Beyond lies we know
What we have forgotten
He remembers still
Give him a drink
A long sip of longing
Where he came
He won’t go back

P.S. I read the book The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry just recently. It was a good book, but it was really not intended for children. I was so inspired by the book I had the motivation to write a simple poem.

Random Words My Thoughts Formed: Who We Are

We are who we are
We made it this far
How was it possible?
But we don’t care
Let them judge, grudge
Deny the truth
That we are better
Now that we’re together
A new journey starts
We must say unexpected
To live a dream of yesterday
Now we make a legacy
We will make it to the end
They were wrong
We prove we are strong
This is who we are
Who we are, who we are
Is all that matters
