Para sa Bawat Babae

Mga Kabaro, kapatid, kaakibat sa pakikibaka sa laban ng buhay, sa my asawa, sa mga lola, sa mga Ina na walang sawang gumagabay at sumusuporta sa mga anak nya at sa lahat ng mga babae sa mundo na kinakailangan bigyan pahalaga.  Happy Women's Day!


PARA SA BAWAT BABAE
Ni NANCY R. SMITH
Para sa bawat babaeng sawa na sa pagkukunwaring mahina siya gayong alam niyang siya’y malakas,
May isang lalaking pagod na sa pag-aastang malakas kahit nanghihina.

Para sa bawat babaeng sawa na sa pagkukunwaring wala siyang alam,
May isang lalaking nabibigatan na dahil palaging inaasahang alam niya ang lahat.

Para sa bawat babaeng sawa na sa taguring “emosyonal at iyakin,”
May  isang lalaking pinagkakaitan ng karapatang lumuha at magpakita ng pagmamahal.

Para sa bawat babaeng nakararamdam ng “pagkatali” sa kanyang mga anak,
May isang lalaking hindi nakakaranas ng lubos na kaligayahan ng pagiging kapwa-magulang.

Para sa bawat babaeng pinagkaitan ng makahulugang trabaho at pantay na pasahod,
May isang lalaking nabibigatan sa pananagutang buhayin ang kanyang pamilya.

Para sa bawat babaeng hindi tinuruan nang pasikot-sikot ng makina at sasakyan,
May isang lalaking hindi natuto sa kasiyahan ng pagluluto.

Para sa bawat babaenghumahakbang patungo sa kanyang sariling pagpapalaya,
May isang lalaking nakatutuklas na napadali ang daan niya tungo sa kalayaan.

For Every Woman




One of the poems that has stuck to my mind was "For Every Woman" by Nancy Smith.  I came across this poem in one of the Women's Conferences I have attended when I was still working for a Non-Government Organization way back then.  The poem was imprinted in a shirt given to all attendees.  

For Every Woman

By Nancy R. Smith





For every woman who is tired of acting weak when she knows she is strong, there is a man who is tired of appearing strong when he feels vulnerable.

For every woman who is tired of acting dumb, there is a man who is burdened with the constant expectation of "knowing everything."


For every woman who is tired of being called "an emotional female," there is a man who is denied the right to weep and to be gentle.


For every woman who is called unfeminine when she competes, there is a man for whom competition is the only way to prove his masculinity.


For every woman who is tired of being a sex object, there is a man who must worry about his potency.


For every woman who feels "tied down" by her children, there is a man who is denied the full pleasures of shared parenthood.


For every woman who is denied meaningful employment or equal pay, there is a man who must bear full financial responsibility for another human being.


For every woman who was not taught the intricacies of an automobile, there is a man who was not taught the satisfactions of cooking.


For every woman who takes a step toward her own liberation, there is a man who finds the way to freedom has been made a little easier.

Here are my top website and applications for free messaging service:

magTXT.com

Downside:  the website uses random cellphone numbers in sending your messages, and you will not receive or read replies to these numbers.  Always put your name in the nickname field so that the receipient  will at least know from whom the message came from. 

   U-link is a facebook application intended to send free messages to any networks even without logging out from your facebook account.  First, click Like on the U-link application page and start sending text messages for free.

Downside:  U-link also uses random cellphone numbers to send your messages.  However, the text message would include "U-link: message from:(receipient) and the message"



Chikkalite is designed for facebook users as well.  You also have to like the Chikkalite page before you could use this free messaging service.  And you don't have to download or install the Chikka application anymore to your computer.

Downside:  Chikkalite only has limited text messages that you could send per day.  A user only has 30 credits to start with and the receipient must reply at least once to the chikkalite number to be able to continually receive or send message.

So, there is no reason for you not to be able to reply to any text that you receive or send a message to anyone especially if you are online.  Start using this services and take advantage of free texting.

Message SENT!!!

A Day With You.


halika...

lets spend the day together....
punta tayo sa mga lugar na dati nating pinupuntahan
pinapasyalan....
kumain tayo sa paborito nating restaurant,
malamang wala na ito pero at least daanan natin
alalahanin ang masasayang alaala
ang mga nagdaan ating igunita....

punta tayo sa tabing dagat...
masdan ang paglubog ng araw...

baka sakali,
pag bumalik tayo sa nakaraan kahit sandali....
manumbalik ang pag-ibig na dati'y kaysidhi....

kaya halika na....
kahit alam natin na wala na tayong dalawa..
just this day,
can we at least pretend
that we are still lovers and not just friends?

Our Love Story

 sCrying over someone won't bring them back,
staying up late at night
 wishing on stars won't make things as they were,
telling them how much you love them won't either;
the only thing that can


is to let their heart come back to you.




We were schoolmates since elementary days but our paths never crossed and we never knew of each others existence then.  We started to notice each other in high school.  I can still vividly remember, yours in one of the classes I have handled during the Teacher's Week where I was one of the Student Teachers and took over one of your subjects.  You're quite cute, kinda lanky, a little bit shy but still the kind of guy who says what he wanted to say.  I think you're going out with a classmate of yours then, and I, well, though I have my own share of suitors,  is not exactly thinking of going out seriously with anyone then.

Years passed, and our paths crossed again in our junior year, I was a cheerleader and your a varsity player.  You've grown to be one of the cutest guys in school.  Girls seem can't get enough of you and they're doing even the craziest things just to be noticed by you.  But I guess, your attention was already focused on someone else then (me), just like my other suitors, you're also vying for my attention.  Giving me love notes, walking me home, going out with for snack after school.

But I guess, you're not lucky.... I chose the other guy instead.  One afternoon, just right after class, you approached me and told me you're gonna walk me home.  I can't seem to answer coz I already agreed to someone else to walk me home.  As we are nearing the gate, the other guy came and get my bag and books and just said, "Let's go?"  And all I can tell you is, "I'm sorry".  You're such a sport.  You just walked away from us but your drooping shoulders didnt come unnoticed...

I thought that was the end of your courtship.  Unfortunately, my relationship with the other guy didnt seem to work out.  And you were always there during those times that he should be there.  We were more together than me and my boyfriend were.  And little by little, I was drawn to you, your sweetness and thoughtfulness got me thinking that you are actually a better person than my boyfriend.

And so, my boyfriend and I broke up...  And you were there.  I did not ever consider our relationship to be on a rebound coz you have proven yourself to me and that you are worthy of my love.  You are so kind, so sweet, so thoughtful and so true.  Even if you dont like the things, sports, events that I am into, you are always there to support me to the point of learning it as well so you could come with me and join me in any of those things, events.  Our relationship prospered and we enjoyed almost 2 years before things started to go sour...

We were in college, different universities, different people, different lives.  It was then I have realized that I want to explore and broaden my horizon and it seems like you are confining me into our own little world.  I have started to fall away from you, without you realizing it, coz you love me more than before.  It was then that I thought our relationship is so routinary that it got to the point that I got bored.  And so, without further ado, I said goodbye to you... You cant seem to understand why and asked me if you did something wrong or if there is someone else.  But no, how can I explain, there's no one else... its not you... its me... there's nothing wrong with you... And I thought it would be better this way than to hurt you more in the long run... So we broke up... It took sometime for the wound to heal, but you know what, I was quite surprised and happy that we still manage to keep the friendship we had..

Who would ever thought that after more than a decade we would see each other again?  Oh my... You, looking good more than ever.  and since we have kept our friendship, we were able to at least go out with some common friends.  Reminiscing the old days, the good times we had. We laughed, joked around and kept each other up to date as to what has happened in all those years in our lives.  The whole night that we were all together, I kept on stealing glances in your direction, silently observing you, wishfully thinking its still me and you.... asking myself why did I ever let you go... It was that night that I realized,  that even after all those years, my love for you was just like a dormant volcano... its still there, just waiting and bidding its time...

Do you think we still or might have a chance?
