The Unsung Heroes

Their tasks are surely not easy 
Difficulties abound 
Challenges are endless 
Compensation is limited. 

They stir passion in writing 
They inspire the youth to learn 
They mold the future in their hands 
They create models by touching hearts. 

Teachers are everywhere 
But those real are rare 
Gems in the vineyard of knowledge 
They affect eternity way and beyond.

My Dear Mentor

The first time I saw her, I knew that I was in good hands. She seemed to light up the whole room with her infectious smile. She held my hand and welcomed me with a gesture enough for me to feel the warmth of a newly found friend.

She’s one of the blessings bestowed upon me in my new home. A dear mentor who in a brief period of time made me realized a lot of things.


What’s amazing perhaps is that everyday that I spend with her is an encouragement to take things lightly. She brushes worries away with her laughter. She sees the positive side of every bad event and the most admirable perhaps is that she can exude positivity just by flashing her ever ready smile.

I once lost hope when affliction has befallen to me. Now, I was given a mentor and a friend to inspire me. The greatest thing about her is that she is an icon of a real fighter- a cancer survivor who showed me that happiness is just a matter of perspective.

She is my dear mentor…a God- given friend to inspire me in the room full of strangers.

The Day My Heart Cried

May 28, 2008

My life started at 28, my soul died for me to realize the meaning of life and love...

When I woke up today bathed in the sunlight peeking through the windows. I lingered for a little longer on bed and savored the gratitude which was about to burst from my heart.

If you told me a year ago that I would still be basking in the dawn of my birthday this year, I would’ve laughed and cried at the same time.


You see, it was the same day last year that I listened to my doctors’ endless cruel “jokes” about the future I was facing. Life was full of uncertainties back then. What I only knew was the pain of countless needle pricks in my arms and that blinding pain in my stomach…and of course the fear that I might not see another day.

I can make a long list of the sufferings I needed to endure in seeing through the malady that inflicted me but even that won’t suffice.

However, life has a hidden treasure buried in the depth of our soul. Fate has destined for me to experience all those intricacies so that I would be a better person. My soul was battered, my steps faltered, yet the will to survive has lived…

Today, I celebrate my birthday without trepidation in my heart for what the future brings. The day my heart cried last year was the day I have realized this year how blessed I am. I no longer feel the same fear I had the day I turned 28, I was blessed in so many ways that counting them would entails a lifetime.

When a heart is patient, the light of sun rays would penetrate through. As for me, I treasure each moment I breathe because even in the darkest tunnel of suffering, there's light at the end.
