Better than Bitter

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Thursday, April 28, 2011, In : All About Life 

Many people are afraid of getting involved again after the collapse of a relationship. Some people would call them embittered, but beneath bitterness is fear. We have been hurt. We are afraid of being hurt again so we stop trusting men, or women.

I don't want to be one of those persons. This is not to say that I don't have my own fears. I do. Sometimes my fears are so huge they feel as if they will engulf me. But I'm willing to sit quietly in the center of those fears until they become some...

Let It Be

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Thursday, April 28, 2011, In : Poem 

Some days the right person comes along at the right time
and reaches inside the churning maw of chaos and doubt
we have slipped within
opens a hand
we take hold
and choose to walk out

It's funny how a few well-placed words can offer clarity
and the world tilts
slides open
a sigh escapes our weary hearts
and we realize we've been holding our breath
for years

And quite suddenly we know the singular joy
of sitting deeply in the stillness of our own truth
our power, our plenary selves

Living My Life

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Thursday, April 28, 2011, In : Poem 

Through sheer insanity, 

I jump off the ring of fire that kept me in prison, 

consuming all my strength. 

Then freed0m on the apex of it is finally on my reach, 

disregarding all the pessimisms, resentments and sarcasms.. 

I become whole again.. 

Which I've wanted years ago.. 

Mustering only a will power and an ounce of courage...

And a colossal amount of appreciation of life.

The Day I Die

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Thursday, April 28, 2011, In : Poem 

Cry over my grave when I die,

That I could swim in the sea of your sorrow.

But please, never come in black,

I might get lost in the dark.

Keep the candle burning,

Never let the wind blow.

For as long as the flame is dancing,

I can find my way home.

To eternal bliss that can give me peace,

In your heart and mind, I shall rest.

When the sun bids you goodbye

and take refuge for the night,

I shall rise from my coffin

to give you warmth.

And when at night 

the moon refuse to glow,

worry not my love

for the stars w...

Under The Moonlight

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Thursday, April 28, 2011, In : Love 

When the world is resting,
and the night is still.
When the moon is the only source of light,
Can't help but think of you my love.

As the cold breeze passes by,
It brings shivers down deep in my spine.
Missing once more, the warmth of your love,
Oh, I just can't live when you're not around.

I close my eyes, I see you in the dark,
And feel your presence like a teardrops.
I open my eyes to tremble at your sight,
Holding me close, surrendering your life.

The feel of your body against mine,
Stir a sensation s...

On Loving... Part 3

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Friday, April 15, 2011, In : Love 

Those who do not like it call it responsibility.
They play with it, calling it a game.
They are not living with it, calling it a dream.
Those who love each other, call it destiny. 
If we lose love, then there must be a reason behind it.
The reason is sometimes difficult to understand, but we still have to believe
When He took something, He will be ready to give us much better.
We just have to wait patiently.  
Why wait? 
Because even if we wanted to make a decision, we need not want to rush. 
Because e...

When we find someone whose uniqueness is in line with our's ...

we join him and fall into a similar oddity 

called LOVE ...

There are things that do not want us to disconnect,

People who do not want us to leave ...

But remember ... that's not the end of the world ..

Happiness is for those who cry,

those who hurt,

Because they can appreciate

Are You Being Too Hard on Yourself?

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Friday, April 8, 2011, In : All About Life 

Most of us are subject to guilt feelings. We may be spending so much time feeling guilty everyday. Guilt for the most part is very constructive. It's an important civilizing influence that keeps people from hurting, distressing or disappointing others. However, the system that works for good can also malfunction.


If your guilt feelings don't lessen after you've tried to make amends, or if you are feeling guilty for things you can't control, you're probably suffering from false guilt, whic...

How could someone with so little be so happy?

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Tuesday, April 5, 2011, In : All About Life 

"Thank you, Sir. Praise the Lord!" the old beggar exclaimed in clear English as I shove a five-peso coin into his hand. I was on my way to meet a friend at a restaurant near Raja Solaiman Park one rainy October day when I chance upon the kindly old man, charming passers-by for alms with his tooth-less smile and sunny disposition.

Minutes later, as I sat comfortably in the restaurant with my friend, the memory of the old man lingered in my mind. After our meal, we go to the spot where I left...

A Tell Tale Story

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Friday, April 1, 2011, In : All About Life 

"True!–nervous–very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses–not destroyed–not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heavens and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad?"

"…Now this is the point. You fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But you should have seen me. You should have seen how wisely I proceeded–with what caution–with what fores...

In My Humble Opinion

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Friday, April 1, 2011, In : In My Opininon 

About the only thing I don't have a strong opinion on is why there is even a small percentage of people out there who always respond to surveys with "no opinion." Yet there they are, in every poll, the no-opinion people. A question could be as simple as "Is Michael Jackson dead?" or "Is durian truly edible?" and this people will have nothing to say, either way. Most of us are just brimming with beliefs, attitudes, judgement calls and crank theories. We freely give our wisdom in bars, on radio...
