Oh, umiiyak ka na naman.

‘Yong totoo, nagiging hobby mo na ang pag-iyak, ah. Kailangan ba araw-araw? Mamaya niyan manuyo na yang mata mo. Mamaya niyan maubusan ka na ng luha. Tama na… Tahan na. Ha?

Oo, alam ko naman e. Matigas ang ulo mo. Kapag sinabihan kang tahan na, lalo kang iiyak kahit pa alam nating lahat na hindi naman niyan masosolusyunan ang lahat, lahat ng pinagdadaanan mo.

Lahat naman ng tao may pinagdadaanan, may pasan-pasan na bagahe, iba-iba nga lang ang bigat. Iba-iba rin naman tayo ng lakas. Gaya lang ‘yan ng pagwo-workout e. Kailangan mong magbuhat ng weights para lumakas ka. Kailangan nating dumaan sa mga pagsubok para tumibay tayo. Parte ‘yan ng buhay. Kasama ‘yan sa paghubog natin sa ating pagkatao.

Alam ko naman hindi talaga mabait ang buhay sa ‘yo. Alam ko naman na kaiyak-iyak naman talaga ‘yong mga nangyayari sa buhay mo. Ang akin lang, magpakatatag ka. Huwag mong idaan lagi sa iyak. Walang masama sa pag-iyak pero subukan mo ring mag-isip at gumawa ng solusyon.

Kaya punasan mo na ‘yang mga luha mo. Huwag ka nang maghintay pa na may taong dumating para magpunas niyan at magpatahan sa ‘yo. Alagaan mo ang sarili mo, pero huwag kang liliko kapag may nakita kang harang sa daan mo. Kapag umulan ba, hindi ka na lalabas kahit kailangan? Para saan pa ang payong, hindi ba? Be strong for yourself.

Why do people get hurt?

Why do people get hurt? Is it because they love too much or because their love’s not enough?

Why do people get hurt? Is it because they love too much?

They love too much but don’t get anything in return. Those they love do things that hurt them. Those they love ignore them and their feelings. Those they love are not deserving of their love. Those they love don’t know how to accept their love.

Why do people get hurt? Is it because their love’s not enough?

If it’s enough, they wouldn’t get hurt if those they love don’t love them back. If it’s enough, they’ll be contented looking after those they love from afar. If it’s enough, they’ll be contented by merely love. “Merely” loving? Is there such a thing?

So, why do people get hurt? Should they really get hurt? Should they? And if yes, why should they?

Everyday, we ask the question “why?” and everyday – either tirelessly or exhaustedly – we try to find the answers to our why’s. Some days, we find them. Other days, we simply don’t like today, I don’t.

Sigh.

Sometimes, all you need is a sigh. A sigh.

A sigh to clear your mind. Our brain is one powerful organ. If it thinks you’re unwell, you’ll be. It works way, way hard at times that it could piss you out. Honestly, even if it works so hard all the time, we cannot say that it is productive all the time. Sometimes, it just processes stupid thoughts. Sadly, however, from those stupid thoughts are where negative feelings root. It’s a sad reality. So, sigh. Sigh as deep as you needed to clean your brain and remove the senseless web of thoughts.

Sometimes, all you need is a sigh. A sigh.

A sigh to release your anger. People can be cruel, even without their own consent. They expect you to be perfect, but are flawed in so many ways. They cling on you when they need something and burn the bridge when you’re the one who’s needy. They speak so harshly yet cry at your kind criticism. They always want to have fun but also always unwilling to wrap the fun. Sigh because they can be too much. Sigh instead of stabbing them in their backs. Sigh instead of hurting them back.

Sometimes, all you need is a sigh. A sigh.
Sigh at life’s bitchness. Life is the ultimate bitch. It will guide you into a nice boat while the current is still. After a few minutes of enjoying the ride, it’ll create rain, storm, roaring thunder. It’ll send giant waves on your way. It’ll put a hole on the once nice boat. Yes, you’re screwed but you got to keep living. Sigh and hold onto what’s remaining of the boat. “Hold on for dear life”.

Sometimes, all you need is a sigh. A sigh.

Sigh for you’re stubborn. Sigh for yourself because of yourself. We, ourselves, most of the time, are the actual reasons of our troubles. We make abrupt decisions that cause us a lot. And at certain times, we don’t make decisions but that too causes us a lot. We love the wrong people and hate on those who truly love us. We let fear stop us from doing the things we love. And when we’re overconfident, that very overconfidence helps us ruin ourselves. Sigh for your own stupidity and awful mistakes.

Sometimes, all you need is a sigh. A sigh.
