The World Needed A Break

Advertisements

Written last March 26, 2020

It’s like the world is ending
for the humans whose living
but the earth is mending
the toxicity the humans
keep creating.

The air is fresh to breathe
it’s sad that it come to this,
for the world to heal
we needed a disease.

Millions of lives are at stake,
it is a crisis for every state,
the world needed a break,
when will this evaporate?

PORTAL

Everybody’s out there doing something.
I’m in here staring at the screen laughing,
trying to forget the world’s problem
but I ended up sinking at the bottom.

I am here lying in bed wishing for a portal
to go back to when everything was normal.
Looking for an escape— take me away.
I would never look back and there I’ll stay.

27 THINGS COVID-19 SHOWED THE WORLD BY PORTALKINI.COM

[RANT POST] “TIMEOUT” – FRONTLINERS CRY FOR HELP

I was not supposed to post two blog entries in a day but this is something that I just needed to get off my mind.

I’m writing this because the current situation of our health care system is alarming and for my fellow countrymen in the Philippines if this distress call from our modern heroes doesn’t worry you— it should.

Health care system in the Philippines are now overwhelmed by the increasing number of COVID cases with over 5,000 daily confirmed cases, and now Philippines has over 100,000 cases. Now, medical frontliners are calling for help and wanting the country to go on another lockdown for at least 2 weeks to regroup and rethink their strategy on how to handle this pandemic.

Okay, this is sad and alarming. This made me more scared because our health care system is our armor during this pandemic and now that they are close to giving up, it’s like the hope for fighting and ending this virus is far from being achieved. It also made me more angry to the government, and for all the time that they wasted on other irrelevant issues during this crisis. Like, passing anti-terror law which violates the constitution and rights of Filipinos. They also focused more on the franchise renewal of one of the country’s largest TV network. Imagine if they focused more on the actual biggest problem here which is COVID-19 and not them creating laws to stop criticisms towards the government or using political power to get revenge. Now, the country cannot afford another lockdown. I am so furious because we had gone through that lockdown for almost 3 months and the government didn’t do anything at that time to find a solution. Like, mass testing and contact tracing, instead they used that time to make a move on their political agenda which is to make the current administration more in control and powerful. What also makes me furious with the country’s current situation is that a lot of my fellow countrymen are not furious as I am. They still support what this failing administration is doing, even if they are being fooled right in their face, they still turn a blind eye and just support the president. They are not a Filipino, they are fans. They idolized this current president that they are becoming ignorant to the country’s situation.

Now, our doctors and nurses are exhausted because the government didn’t prioritize the solution to the biggest problem that the country is facing. What will happen to us? I don’t know but I pray that we all get through this together.

I am praying for all the medical frontliners, give them strength and patience to face this pandemic. I am praying for their safety.

To all the frontliners around the world. We are all thankful for what you are doing for your country, you are indeed our modern heroes.

5UPPORT JEEPNEY DRIVERS

Hello again everyone! I’m just here to promote and support my friend’s donation drive to help jeepney drivers in the Philippines who lost their source of livelihood due to the pandemic, now they are begging on the streets for some food to eat for them and their families.

During the quarantine for more than 3 months now they didn’t have any source of income, most of them rely on driving jeepneys to get on with their lives. This is not about working harder, this is about losing the only opportunity they have to earn and without the support of the gov’t.

So guys, if you could share this and even donate any amount please do. Thank you so much!
