My Own Kind Of Autobiography

“TREASURE YOUR FAMILY”

Life is short, no one should live it in fear, because if someone fear life then how could that someone enjoy it? Isn’t it the essence of life? Enjoyment , happiness and love.

I can still remember the story what my mother told me. On the 24th day of October, year 2002, an angel was born and it was me.They were so happy as they saw my face but they never expected that they will going to encounter such storm as I was born. Palompon, Leyte, a land where I was born and also, a land where it first witness the greatest fear that my family had felt. After my mother gave birth to me, she didn’t expect that she will going to suffer a great loss of blood. At that moment, she think that it will be the last day of her life. She felt fear, great fear not to herself but to her children and most especially to her newly born child, which is me. But, truly God is good because he never let my mother die but still she was confined at the hospital for further check up. During her days at the hospital, my Aunt were the one who took good care of me. For a newly born baby, he/she must drink milk from his/her mother’s breast but in my case during those days, instead of breastfeeding, my Aunt gave me a milk, not a literal milk but but they said it is good for the baby’s health. They called it “Gabon”. Gabon is the substitute to my milk because the doctor restricted my mother to breastfeed me due to her condition. As days goes by, my mother recovered and she was discharged at the hospital. My family were thankful that she’s okay and nothing bad happens to her, especially to their new member of the family, which is me.

I am the seventh child of the family and the youngest among the girls. I still have my youngest brother and also our youngest in the family. I am not that close with my siblings, except one. My older sister, whom I am next to her. We’ve been that close to the point that we share each others feelings, problems, funny thoughts, dreams and most especially, our secrets. Of all my siblings, she’s the only one I must say, my sister/best friend. The type of person like her is what I’ve looking for. I may meet lots of new friends as I grow older but no one can compare to her. Despite of the closeness we had with my sister, I still had a time to bond and create memories with my family, of course.

There’s no other great memories that had happen in my life but the memories that I had with my family. So, love your family. Make them your priority. Because in this world where everything is just “temporary”, your family will always stay in your life “permanently”.

ONE ACT PLAY

“HER GOLDEN THRONE”

A place where everyone dreamed to rule in is a place that Princess Morri governing but Princess Cattleya wanted to sieze her throne. It is the kingdom of Euthopia.

Princess Morri: I called everyone, for you to inform that we must strengthen our security inside and outside of the palace. As what has happening right now, we don’t really know who is the true perpetrator is.

(The rumors started)

Princess Cattleya: Why do we need to strengthen the security, we already have our skilled armies roaming around the palace?

Princess Morri: Yes, but we still have to because I don’t think that skilled armies are enough to protect our palace. Second,I don’t really trust them.

Princess Cattleya: If you don’t trust them,then why did you choose them to roam around the palace?

Everyone was shocked,as Princess Cattleya questioned Princess Morri. All eyes were on the two. Seems like, conflict started to arise.

Princess Morri: I am not the only one who chose them, all of us agreed to it. You don’t have the right to ask me some personal questions, Cattleya.

Princess Cattleya: Sorry for that, Your Highness. (Bowed down but she smirk)

Princess Morri: Everyone, listen! I want you all to decide and agree who will go to choose and assigned more skilled armies in the palace.

Princess Cattleya: Do we need to do this? I think we don’t have to. Our skilled armies is enough, as what I’ve said earlier, Your Highness.

Princess Morri: Why were you always questioned my decisions, Princess Cattleya? Do you have the idea who’s the perpetrator is?

Princess Cattleya was stunned and her eyes were surely shocked and nervousness in her body,started. Everyone’s eyes were on her.

Princess Morri: Are you afraid that the perpetrator will be caught?

And Princess Cattleya has nothing to say. She was caught off-guard by what Princess Morri has said.

Princess Morri: Answer me Princess Cattleya. (Serious tone)

Princess Cattleya: (Stutter) I…. I…. Do-Don’t even know who’s the perpetrator Your Highness.

Princess Morri: Seems like you’re nervous Princess Cattleya.

Everyone was silenced until their phones beeps and a video appears. Everyone was shocked why did their phones rings together. They opened it and everyone was surprise by what they saw.

Someone send them a video. Princess Cattleya was transacting someone who will going to let Princess Morri dead. After they heard the conversation, all eyes were on Princess Cattleya and she’s now really afraid.

Princess Cattleya: (In a tone of afraid voice and she’s crying) I don’t know who send that one that they even took a video of mine which I didn’t do it.

Princess Morri: (Angy) Stop your damn useless and nonsense reasons Cattleya. There’s already evidence you can’t escaped from it.

Princess Cattleya: Morri! It’s not me, someone just used me!

Princess Morri: Shut up, Cattleya! I trust you very much but you just betrayed me! (She’s talking while crying)

Princess Cattleya: I’m sorry… (Talking while sobbing) I just did it because I was jealous with you. Everyone’s love, care and attention, everyone is in you! I feel like, I am nothing.

Princess Morri: Just by that, Cattleya? Every time I am worrying about you, doesn’t it show that I love you? Doesn’t it show that I cared for you? I love you, Cattleya because you are my sister but you’re just making the door is your heart and mind closed. (She’s still crying)

“BE A TOOL TO HELP OUR OWN NATION”

As the modern age exist

Modern generations still continue to exist

Deceitful modern technologies will continue to expand,

Because of a great demand.

This generation, Our generation are being called as Z Generation

A generation that I doubt in helping its own nation

I, also a part of being influenced by modern generation.

Why do we embrace this deceitful generation?

Why don’t we, teenagers, reminisce on the past generation?

A generation where simple living exist,

Despite of the deceitful modern technologies that exist.

We let ourselves blend with those deceitful ones

Without thinking, that we already forgotten our loved ones

And instead of love; hatred,grudge and jealousy reigns in our heart’s

Without knowing, that we hurt someone’s hearts.

Don’t be such a fool

Instead, choose to be a tool

A tool to help eradicate this deceitful generation

A significance tool to repair and reconstruct this decietful generation to be a useful generation to it’s own nation.

“AS I STARE THEN CLOSE MY EYES”

As I stare then close my eyes;

The tears started to flow

There’s nothing I can do but to reminisce

Thinking why we ended the ties

Knowing that,as we stare each other,our eyes glow

As I stare then close my eyes

Laughter ended up;as it flies

And sadness in the eyes covers up the glow

There’s nothing I can do but to reminise

Memories were gone and pain started to rise

Everything is a mess in just one throw

As I stare then close my eyes

I was wishing for your replies

Hoping that you’d also know

There’s nothing I can do; but to reminisce

If only I can bring back the broken ties

As I stare then close my eyes

I already did; just for us to grow

There’s nothing I can do but to reminisce

SONNET

“I LOVE GSC”

I was in the midst of struggle

And I was seeking for opportunity

An opportunity to help me face the obstacle

And trained me to do my responsibility

Then there’s a great school with a great offer

I grab the opportunity I’ve heard

And say to myself not to rebuke the offer

I am thankful that I am here, starting to soar high like a bird

And starting to discover my capabilities

By the help of the people in a higher position.

And I must say, I am now ready to face my duties

For I am now foreseeing my profession

I am proud that I was one of the product

And I am ready to multiply and not to subtract.
