People are People

10 Jan

 

WHEN you stepped out of this world
You are sheltered at home
and as you grow, you’ll have your school, your church
They look at you and hope for the future

WHEN you debut into this world
You are embraced by those in the room
You dance till dawn, you’ll feel unbreakable
and the next day, you’ll still have your peers, your dreams

WHEN you’re done with school
You are praised by all
and the next day, you’ll still have it all,
but maybe even eyes waiting for your downfall

WHEN you’re looking for a workplace
You are pressured by it all,
you might set aside your passion,
and just catch the next available place, but not for long
(So you say)

WHEN you submit yourself in that rat race
you’ll get tired, but still save face
you remember those prying eyes
and you get on, you smile, you wave
(So you try)

WHEN you’re getting restless
you remember those praises that pushed you to just drive
“Just be Someone, it doesn’t matter what but be Someone”
and you believe, you just might become someone
(Or not)

WHEN you feel you’re too old for your age
you feel you have become part of this world
and you think kids are too spoiled, they dream
you’ll want to go back, be that kid, be Anyone but Someone
(So you think)

WHEN you feel lost in the game
but winning in the eyes of peers
you realize you have been deceived
the praises have misled you from your dreams

WHEN you get out of that game
the eyes would stop looking but glare
they’ll loose hope for your future
and you won’t care

WHEN that time comes
maybe you’ll doubt yourself
the confidence might be swayed for leaving was not that easy,
Anyway, YOU’RE JUST GETTING STARTED.

WHEN you feel down
remember you’re at the bottom of going up
you’ll get there somehow, because you care
you have owned the game, you’ll dare

SO, push through, forget the wounds you’ll get
Forget the flawlessness, forger being perfect
Disappoint people who followed what others paved them to go
Enlighten people who believed you’re getting lost to reach your rightful place
Some place you’ll make to become Somebody you’re proud of.

To Just BE

29 Sep

Gender Equality, i think, is not necessarily having all things alike, or having to prove one’s ability to the other. Its not a competition as to who’s better just to make a point.

Girls as executives? Why not?
Boys as househusbands? Go for it!
Girls as athletes? Of course!
Boys being meticulous about his appearance? That’s great!

Or girls simply being girls.
Or boys simple being boys.

Girls who likes girls and boys who likes boys? They are like everyone too. Liking. Loving. Living.

Its having the choice to do things girlish and/or boyish (whatever). Its a freedom to BE whatever regardless of labels.

We were given the gift of FREE WILL by God. We might as well use it. Let’s not limit ourselves to what our society dictates.

We breathe the same air. We all return to dust when we die. We all have the same mechanics, you know?
And each of us can make a difference if we JUST BE.

LET US BE.
