How Could Love Be So Unfair?

Posted by pearl1003 at 3:02 PM
When you love someone, it's nice to show him all the love and care he deserves without thinking of how to do it or why you have to do such things. In love, there is no rule to follow. Love is something that we can not keep inside of hearts forever. Love is a feeling that we should express without worries or any hesitation at all. When you love someone, you show him all the best you can do, care for him without asking for any care in return. When we are in love, no one can ever stop us from feeling it and showing the world that we care.

But how could love be so unfair? Sometimes, when you feel love is burning deep inside our hearts, there are people who try to stop us from being happy with the person we are in love with. Sometimes, when we fight for our love, we still fail to keep love alive within our souls. Love is a reason to hold on, to live, to laugh, and to take things easy... But love can hurt us when we have to let go, when it's time to say goodbye... We cry because of love. We die because of love.

If there is a rule to follow, if there is a proper way how to love and who to love, then the world would be so cold, so pointless, so empty. Love is a way to learn how to grow, to communicate, to know what's the meaning of acceptance, loyalty, and faith. Love will help us live a life full of happiness. We must love with courage to face any challenge that would block our way. We should accept that loving can be painful, but the pain is worthless if we are happily in love, right? So why bother to follow rules when there is no rule! It's true that love is unfair, but there is nothing wrong if we will express how we feel. So we just have to go on and live life as normal as we could. We should not be afraid of trying to make things better. If we will all love without exceptions, then this "love" can be finally fair enough for all of us.

A Very Nice Thought: A repost from my old blog

Posted by pearl1003 at 1:40 AM
"If tears could build a stairway, and memories were a cane,
I would walk right up to heaven to bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken, no time to say good bye,
You were gone before I knew it and God only knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness, and secret tears still flow...
What it meant to lose you, no one will ever know."

I'm Homesick

Posted by pearl1003 at 1:41 AM

I've never imagined myself crying my eyes out just because I'm missing some people close to my heart. I didn't expect that it is hard to work while at the back of your mind, you are dying to see and be with these people and spend some more time with them.

It's been 2 years since I left Philippines to work abroad. Although I went back home twice already to enjoy my annual vacation leave, the feeling of being "at home" here is never the same when you're really there in your own room, reading a good book, and spending the rest of the day without thinking about how to finish your deadlines as quickly as you can.

It's easy to leave Doha right now just to be with my old happy and easy life back home, but I need to earn for a better future. If being homesick will stop me from getting my dreams come to reality, then maybe I should just try a bit harder to forget the "homesickness" and just face the fact that I can't just quit my job right now. One day, I'll feel better. One day, every pain will just fade away. And when the time comes to head back home, there's nothing more wonderful than seeing myself inside my purple room again, reading my favorite Harry Potter book, enjoying the presence of my dogs playing beside me on my bed, and hearing the voices of my nieces calling my name.
