It's the Making of Resolutions that Counts

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Tuesday, March 29, 2011, In : All About Life 



A friend recently told me that he saw the picture I've posted on my facebook. Its about my New Year's resolution to quit on my smoking habit.At first, I've tried to keep that resolution. Every year, I produce a sadly familiar repertoire of aspirations dealing with that bad habit. I always mean well, but it's clear that I lack firmness of purpose.Well, to my mind, thats the essence of New Year's Resolution. It's a wet sponge, slurping up the black marks of the past, leaving a clean slate for t...

FAKE (a diary of mine 2007)

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Tuesday, March 29, 2011, In : Featured Articles from Friends 



Fake, thats all i am

My meaningless smile,

My hollow laugh,

It’s all an act.

 

Outside I’m happy

Inside i’m not,

My life is empty

My soul is dead.

 

I hide all the sadness,

I don’t want people to care,

I’m a useless cause

My sadness, I will not share.

 

As the emotions get stronger,

I have but one release

With one quick slash,

I finally Rest In Peace.

crash.. slit my wrist and calm down. 12x

and the pills sliding down my throat, with the liquid shamp0o.

pushing it down through my st0mach, i was blind, i...

Rising Spirit

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Monday, March 28, 2011, In : All About Life 


 
The rhythm of my hand goes well with the drops of ink and with words floating in my brain. I do not have highfaluting words to speak of, instead, the way of my emotions and the labyrinth that my soul’s going through are the ones obliging me to put the significance of other’s life into scriptures. But, ironically, I do not find my life as important as others do consider it. The poetry of contrast the world has offered me evoked my sensations to be involved in its abyss. In there I grew, l...

Tips From A Successful Slacker

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Monday, March 28, 2011, In : All About Life 


Need to look busier? Make sure your office appears swamped at all times. Your desk should always look like you're in the midst of some incredibly time-sensitive project. This way you can safely maximize the time you spend checking your facebook. 
For added protection, make sure the papers on your desk are arranged in stacks. A calculator, a few stray apples and a strategically placed pair of eyeglasses will round out the organized chaos effect.
Finally, some work on your computer screen that yo...

Its a Game...

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Monday, March 28, 2011, In : All About Life 

 
Win-win. 
Win-lose.
Lose-lose. 
We all hear that terms not just on games we play but also on our every day play of the game called LIFE.
What does it mean, one may ask. Well, if I’m the one to answer, it refer to the possible outcomes of a game or dispute involving two sides, and more importantly, how each side perceives their outcome relative to their standing before the game. 
For example, a “win” results when the outcome of a negotiation is better than expected, a “loss” when the out...

Am I OK?

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Thursday, March 24, 2011, In : Love 


 “It will be okay…” But I know it won’t. And that’s the truth, it won’t."

It's never okay to lose someone important to you. You can never really let someone go but all you can do, and in fact, what you should do, is move on. You, after all, are the master of your own life. Therefore, you are responsible for your own happiness. And the only way you can be happy again is if you recognize this fact. God, after all, gave you free will. In life, we can never have everything we want b...

Why?

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Wednesday, March 23, 2011, In : Love 


 
Your life’s a mystery,
mine is an openbook.
If I could read your mind,
I would’ve take a look.
What have you got to fight?
What would you need to prove?
Hiding with all life’s lies,
but that’s the only truth.
What have you got to say
of the shadow of the past?
What are you gonna be
willing to lose?
To gain someone special
to win your cause?
What have you got to hide?
Who will it compromise?
Where do we have to be?
So you can be happy
and I would be free?
How could we be so blind,
not to see the heart’...

Flying with a Broken Wings

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Wednesday, March 23, 2011, In : All About Life 


How many times have I tried to scape
but until now I’m still a captive.
Behind the bars of your selfish love
trying desperately finding a way out.
Who could save me in this terrible plight?
Hold my hand and take away all the pain?
Open this cage where I’m in,
and show me the way where to begin?
Like a bird who just earn its freedom,
I shall fly towards the sky....
Even with a broken wings.

Who I Wanna Be?

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, In : All About Life 
I'd rather be a little boy with his head on the clouds,
doin' nothing but day dreaming of love.
Instead of the guy who sees the dark before the light,
the one who thinks he has everything under control...
when everything just reachin' the breaking point...

This is Me

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, In : All About Life 
The face of the dawn seems too far away,
For I can't wait to start my day.
New beginning, new stories unfold...
Creating yet another memory to hold.

This is me, yes, I am me...
I'm not a mystery....
Just living my life,
of who I want to be.

All About Love

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, In : Love 


First love, I thought, may cut and mark us the deepest, but love that lasts and grows does so because it joins and nurtures what is dearest, finest and noblest in two people. And because it understands and forgives what is less so.
First love may register in the blood with dizzying effect, but the love that endures takes up residence in the soul. In this way, love becomes something far more powerful than bone and flesh. It completes us, gives us the wholeness we need to navigate safely through...

SIGNS OF JUDGEMENT DAY

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Monday, March 21, 2011, In : Judgement Day 


Major Signs:

 

There are two times when the doors of repentance are absolutely closed. One is after the appearance of major signs of the Day of Judgment; and the other is when the death comes on one's neck, which is called ghargharah (the gargle of death).

 

The major signs come right after the other; i.e., in a sequence.

 

According to the Companions of the Prophet (Sal Allahu 'alaihi wassallam), there are TEN major signs of the Day of Judgment, altogether.

 

 

1. Smoke (Dukhaan)

2. Anti-Christ (Ad-Da...

RE-BALANCING YOUR LIFE

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Monday, March 21, 2011, In : All About Life 



'How's your day?' a question that on my bad days makes me grouse and rant a reply. But after that, I would vow silently for the umpteenth time, never to lose perspective again.

For many of us, work lays claim to our time and emotion, possessing us completely as any spouse or child. But those of us who think we have hard jobs can learn a lot from those who really do.

I wonder how some people manage to counsel rape victims, investigate murder scenes or a rescue victims on the aftermath of a disas...

The PATH

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Saturday, March 19, 2011, In : Poems & Photography 

See the path over which I trudged
had become a highway of opportunity
And realize that the road which once was
so rugged and steep,
was really a beautiful path
to the top of my world!

Whats in a Roof?

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Saturday, March 19, 2011, In : Poems & Photography 

Poets may praise a wattle thatch
Doubtfully waterproof;
Let me uplift my lowly latch
Beneath a rose-tiled roof.
Let it be gay and rich in hue,
Soft bleached by burning days,
Where skies ineffably are blue,
And seas a golden glaze.

(From the "Red-Tiled Roof" poem by Robert William)

Hello? Hey, I'm invisible...

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Saturday, March 19, 2011, In : Technology 
A funny thing happened on the way to the communications revolution: we stopped talking to one another.The landlines and mobile phones used to connect you to the absent. Now it makes people sitting next to you feel absent.Why is it that the more connected we get, the more disconnected I feel? Every advance in communications technology is a setback to the intimacy of human interaction.As almost every conceivable contact between human beings gets automated, the alienation index goes up. You can'...

ON LOVING II

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Thursday, March 17, 2011, In : Love 

 

"Sometimes, in our relentless efforts to find the person we love we fail to recognize and appreciate the people who love us. We miss out on so many beautiful things and simply because we allow ourselves to been slaved by our own selfish concerns. Go for the man of deeds and not for the man of words for you will find rewarding happiness not with the man you love but the man who loves you more. The best lovers are those who are capable of loving from a distance, far enough to allow the other p...

ON LOVING

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Thursday, March 17, 2011, In : Love 

 

When love beckons to you, follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in th...

World Peace! Anyone?

Posted by Lawrence Corpuz on Thursday, March 17, 2011, In : World Peace 
As I am reading the news on the Sunday's issue of the Phillipine Star about what was happening in the middle east countries, I couldn't help but deeply touched by all my brother Muslims for the emotional and physical anguish their going through. Muslim countries political system is akin to dictatorship we had during the term of the late President Marcos. Their political spectrum only compose of far left and far right with the innocent civillians in the middle.
Many have suffered that could hav...
