Time of an Existence

Past, don’t hold me down,

Support my back

Hit me when needed

And pat me to cheer me up

 

Present, don’t be swift

Pass accordingly

And mend my tattered past

To my hoping future

 

Future, don’t be cruel

Come quick

But not today

Keep me believing

That tomorrow will yield something

Much, much

Much better

Life of an Existence

Life is never fair

Whoever said it is

Has never lived it the way it is supposed to be lived

 

Life is about

Curbing the crimson tide

Fighting what cannot be seen

And enjoying things in the midst of lacking

 

Life is…

Life is…

Life is about finding those very special people

And journeying together with them to your finish line to say,

“Ah, yes, life was never unfair after all.”

Event Horizon

How powerful are desires?
How tainted are humans?
How much can friendship transcend?

In a world bathed in light but corrupted by darkness, how will Noah make a difference?

Travel back in time before the first civilizations of the known world and discover an Earth governed by God, guided by angels and made up of humans and learn that the demons are always just around the corners.

Complete with a more than a handful of striking illustrations, reimagining a timeless tale has never been this fun.

Event Horizon is currently free for a limited time offer on Amazon.com via the KDP Select. Grab your copies now and please leave a review if you can.

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

I won’t say grand things like, “If I give my best, I’ll accomplish everything.” But by trying my best, I give myself a fighting chance to HAVE SOMETHING rather than giving up and attesting to the fact that I was born NOTHING and will end up as NOTHING.

Senses tingling with  sweat as cold as ice and a little bit tachycardic is how I would describe myself right about now.

I finally clicked the much anticipated “Publish” button on Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing and am still waiting for their notification that’ll say that my book is ready, live and available on their store. The wait is killing me.

The mixed feelings this experience is giving me is really nauseating. And until this very moment wherein I am writing this blog entry, I’m still not sure if what I did was a good decision but what I am sure of is that this is something I really wanted to do.

Unlike the main character in my book, I am unable to see what lies ahead of me. With that said, there is no other option for me but to charge forward with all my might and hope for the best.

Wise Words from a Cat

“We do have a lot in common. The same air, the same Earth, the same sky. Maybe if we started to look at what’s the same instead of looking at what’s different… well, who knows?”

As I was watching the first Pokemon movie with my four year-old cousin to help familiarize him with the English language, the line above really hit me.

It was quoted from a character named Meowth, one of the mainstay villains of the show Pokemon. Yes, he is a villain but if ever you’ve watched an episode or two of the long-running anime that started during the year 1997, you’ll more or less know that he’s more of a comic-relief than a serious threat.

The quote itself was deep yet simple enough to be understood by children and heavy enough to be remembered for many years. And as I analyzed the said line, I wondered what will happen if everyone on Earth, especially our leaders, would just learn from this cat and take what he said into heart.

Well, according to Meowth, “Who knows?”, right?

Need help…

I need help.

For those of you who doesn’t know, I am going to publish my first book on Amazon. The problem is, I did everything on my own and am not sure if what I made is presentable enough.

One huge source of concern is my cover. I am not a pro when it comes to using Adobe Photoshop but I think I did a decent one, however, it might not be be same for other people.

Event Horizon

This is the cover I made. Do you also think it is decent enough or do you guys have any suggestions to make it better?

My family and friends aren’t aware of this side of me so asking them is definitely out of the question.

You’re comments would really mean a lot.
