Black and White

black-and-white

She walks

in darkness

born of

blight and strife

the shadows

is her home

 

She strikes

at the hearts

victims unknown

million lay dying

in a wasteland

of gloom

 

Hark! The angel appears

he who is

light and bright

shining the way

to salvation

leading the way

to peace

 

She moves forward

he counters back

light and dark

where to begin

light and dark

where will it end?

Shipping Woes!

As I get ready to sell my books, I have been quite busy sending complimentary copies to friends, relatives, and starting next week, the winners of my giveaway raffle. Imagine my disappointment when I learned yesterday that LBC won’t ship my mini magnetic bookmark along with my book to the US. I just got off the phone with them and they won’t even give me a concrete answer. Hence, I started looking for other shipping companies that will accept my (literally) mini bookmark (if I only knew where FedEx in Shopwise relocated). After calling LBC to confirm the sad news, I called 2GO and DHL. I hit the jackpot with DHL 😀 The customer service agent I talked to was a Mr. Elbert and he was so gracious and kind enough to listen to my despair and told me that they will ship my magnetic bookmark. I asked him if I won’t have anymore problems with it when I go to one of their branches and he assured me that it will be ok and if any issue comes up then I should tell the agents there to call their hotline and talk to him. Yehey! I felt like I got an angel in him, though I don’t deserve any angels lately. Haha.

Little Angels

I just learned that a dear friend lost her baby and it is by far the saddest news I have received these past months. I cannot begin to comprehend the amount of pain my friend felt upon hearing the news and I have no words that are good enough to comfort her. This poem is wholeheartedly dedicated to her and to all the moms (and dads) who lost a child. No one should ever go through that kind of experience but these people do and I hope they know that they are not alone. We may never know how painful this experience is for them but we will always be here to listen, hug, and to simply be there for them.

How do you
comfort
a mother
who isn’t?
There will never
be the right words,
right affection,
right hug
when a life
has been torn,
when no explanation
has been said.
A love in
its purest,
ethereal,
transcendent;
a love
beyond
time
deep
raw,
true;
a bond
that will never break,
a bond
even death
cannot severe.
When her pain
runs deep,
when her womb
refuses to forget
how can you comfort
a mother who isn’t?
How can you comfort
the strongest person
she will become?
She is all beauty
grace,
and splendour now
as what was lost
will forever
watch over her.
