There will be times where you will fall a step short of halfway. That’s okay. Remember those who took an extra step for you to get through. Cherish the ones who broke through their own halfway to help you. Celebrate each step beyond the halfway point. You’re getting there.
Hindi ko alam ang sagot Sa lahat ng mga tanong mo sa buhay Pero itanong mo lang Makikinig ako sa bawat salita Makikiramay sa bawat luha Nandito ako
Pangako, palagi kang may tahanan sa akin Hahawakan ko ang mga kamay mo At sasamahang hanapin ang mga sagot Sa bawat sulok at bawat dulo Magka sugat-sugat man tayo
Kung pagod ka na Ang alok ko’y kapahingahan Lalaban ng magkasama Hanggang malaman natin na Wala pala ang sagot sa mundo Kundi nakatanim ng malalim sa puso Hindi na kailangan pang lumayo
Buksan ang iyong dibdib Na napalambot ng paglalakbay Ilabas lahat ng tanong Sa tahanan ng iyong puso Pakinggan mo at unti-unting huminahon Tahan na, tahan na Naririnig ka Sinagot ka ng Pagmamahal
Answered By Love
I don’t know the answers To all the questions you have in life But ask them anyway I will listen to every word I will remain through every tear I’m here
Promise, you will always have a home in me I will hold your hands And be by your side to find the answers Through every corner and every dead end Even if we get wounded in the process
When you get tired I offer myself as a resting place We will fight our battles together Until we realize that The answer is not in the world But planted deep within our hearts We didn’t need to go far
Open up your chest Softened by the journey Let all your questions out In the home of your heart Listen and slowly calm down It’s okay, It’s okay You’re being heard You were answered by Love
I originally wrote this tula (poem) in Filipino. I tried my best translating the words and feelings in English. I hope the message comes across the same. For the ones who have been searching for so long. For the ones who feels heavily burdened by with life. I hope that you find a home to come back to. Whether that home is a person or a place, I sincerely pray, especially as the year ends, that you come to a home where you are welcomed, appreciated, and loved. May each of us find our way home.

A bit of a foreword. This little bundle of words made me laugh at how cheesy it came out but maybe the world needs some cheesiness right now. May the cheesiest and most audacious possibilities we dream about come true. Now pass the Parmesan please!
I can think up a million possibilities Of how things will work out for us in the end In some we end up getting lost, sad, and confused in others we become indifferent to the needs of each other Solace, all of them probably won’t happen
In all my anxious thinking about tomorrow I found only one possibility that we can rely on Possibility number three-six-five, one-four-three It tells a future that carries a promise of love for every day Where we’re held secure, no need to worry
Now I don’t need to think a million more For I’ve decided to bet my hopes and dreams On this possibility that I want to become reality Let’s work together for possibility number three-six-five, one-four-three It may not be perfect but we’re free
