Tolls Taken

“Hindi ka pa ba graduate?”
I get that a lot or most commonly these words,
                “Ilang years course mo?”
Sometimes I glance in blank space and wonder…

Next year my batch mates will be in their senior year, they’ll all prolly be busy with their research works, they’ll prance around job fairs & hunt for their graduation dresses…
Im far from seeking the words I’ve just said, I’m actually just beginning my stay in college. I am only half way through the path of which I will one day call my destiny.
I am nowhere near regretting & I don’t plan to do, well at least for now…
Sometimes a feeling of being left out comes to me, & suddenly feel fear in my system,
                                Telling me…
“They’ve all graduated, seeked for jobs, found their career & settled in”
While I’m still here, slowly passing, holding some instruments at hand, waiting for my professors to give out grades, pass or fail & make me wonder if I’ll ever triumph over all this.
They say life’s about taking chances, & yes I took a path I have learned to love since the beginning.
They say life’s never complete without trying so I guess I did took the right way & as the roads diverge my mind wonders off, as it trails across the trees of what ifs and what could have beens. But then I stop & jolt & look back.
Im still happier in the path of which I took.
I am continuing this adventure & no matter where it takes me,
To bums and bruises,
To tears and blood shut eyes,
To empty pockets and blank checks

I wont ever give up, so for now,
As they go up on stage
I shall admire the beauty,
The emcee’s delightful voice
The graduates cheerful sigh

I cant wait for my turn
That one day finally
I’ll hear the words,
CARULLO, Diane Belchez
A graduate, Batch 2015

Till then.


Written last year, finished this year, posted this year. Daz all :))

Overdeveloped Fondness

He walks the halls with smiles and laughter
Drives us crazy with his jokes and antics
He teaches us things, from right to wrong
And cares entirely for our well being
From serious lessons to just fooling around,
He keeps the class lively and do what he does best
He is a teacher, a father, and above all, a FRIEND.

He’s a person so kind,
Even his laser guns get nabbed.
He’s a person so cool
You will surely love to call DAD.
He’s a teacher so fab
You surely wont wanna miss class.

He has taught us so much,
From exposing xray films to pricking needles, to CPRs and Heimlich’s
And with all this we just we just wanna sing and shout a big “Thank you” Sir Romero
We are forever in debt for the knowledge and kindness you have shared with us.
Please remember our timid faces, our cookie sighs and our crazy ideas whilst you read this.

We love you Sir! X

Things & Wishes~

There will always be those scenes in life that'll keep on lingering no matter how hard you try to lock it down.
Things you wish you hadn't said,
        Things you wish you said.
Things you wish you had not done
        And things you wished you've had.

There'll always be moments where you wish you didn't or you wish you did.
Things you always wanted a time machine for, to rewind the events and in-still in mind a picture of what's right to do.
Things you wish you had, like a magic wand or a crystal ball to enlighten you with things.
Or magic powers to make things right.

There will always be consequences and a series of preludes and post activities.
And no matter how you wish or hope, things will never go the way you want them to.
Things will always go from down right happy to all the way round sad street.
       But despite all you'll realize that what's done is done,
               What's not done is what stays.

We can never turn the clock & force time to reverse itself.
All that's left then are lessons of the past & the future,
                                         of right & wrongs
                                            of recollections of what might have been and what could have beens
                                         and of hopeless and scary nights of why and hows

Lest I forget, all of life is but an experiment

                We learn through the explosions of acids and bases.
                                   through the hot flow of magmas and self made volcanoes
                              through the mind blowing equations and formulas

         And in vast retrospect
                  We realize that working with our lab mates is the biggest challenge of all.
                       Through thick and thin I'll stick.

No matter what I'll try to learn.
Cause I know, it'll always be worth it.~
