    Hope and Faith 

    Never lose hope in a better tomorrow.  This may very well the ultimate definition of grit.

    Faith, on the other hand, has been very hard to digest.  Coming from a country with strong religious tendency among the citizens - and with various flavors some more - I have always been reluctant to ultimately accept that there is only one way to heavenly perfection.

    I still hesitant, but I've come to accept that I'm now part of a religious organization, and part of that culture, and may as well be considered as a soldier of faith of that particular religion.

    The story of Maccabee revolt has been coming to mind lately, especially about the woman and her 6 children.  Will I be willing to do that in the same circumstances? In this kind of modern times? Why do we keep the faith? Does it have any use anymore?

    Home 

    Someday I will go home to you, my Lord
    This thought alone has sustained me

    Almost everything is temporary
    This feeling is temporary
    This confusion is temporary
    This confidence is temporary

    Carpe Diem, Yolo, Seize the day

    Et tu, especially you, are temporary

    Goodbyes 

    Goodbyes, always goodbyes
    And one has to get used to them in this life, way too many times

    And so have I say goodbye?
    Dare I say goodbye?

    But time, time heals, though cruelly
    Should we trust time and thus, kill what needlessly awakens in the first place?

    Thus the father's requiem obsession has passed to his daughter 

    Lacrimosa dies illa, qua resurget ex favilla judicandus homo reus: Huic ergo parce Deus. Pie Jesu Domine, Dona eis requiem.

    Mere Vessels 

    Heed! Beloved! This is Love:

    To understand without being understood
    To listen without being listened
    To attend without being attended
    To give without receiving in return

    Like the stream that moves downward, the love knows where she wants to go, let her flow!

    What are we? Mere creatures, slaves of desires, clothed in weakness and insecurities.  But Love! Love is strong, she exists by her own will, she has a purpose.  Mere vessels, aren't we? Let her greet her beloved, then let her fly.

    Like moth to a flame 

    Like moth to a flame, the lover is drawn to the beloved.

    The love, a sacrifice to the altar of the cruelest Lord, never to be returned, never to be known.

    But warrior has to fight, singer has to sing, and lover has to love.

    Almost time? 

    You've gotten better at this!

    My guardian angel pat me in the back, for suffering a pretty big sad episode with flying colors.

    It is time, isn't it? Nothing last forever, but the memory of that particular time and space, forever engraved, etched so deep and I will drag it to my eternal sleep.

    How I now wish to believe in reincarnation, so we can rewind, fixed the bug! Recompile!

    Rolling with it 

    It's pretty funny, I thought once I get to a certain age, I will lose all anxieties and insecurities.  I did, for a while, and somehow lately I recognize that the demon is back with full force.  

    The difference this time around is I'm accepting my demon so much and just go forward with it.  He is an old adversary, I know him very well, he will be gone soon. 

    The universe always is a cruel bastard and you have to make do, not to take it too seriously and be creative.    Bonus if somehow we can joke around while being pestered.

    Keep walking 

    We the Chinese, grit is inside our cursed, collective souls as red is the color of blood.

    Survive, work hard, keep pushing.  Rest is for the weak.

    Rat on a ring 

    Wheels on the bus
    Cat in a hat
    Rat on a ring

    Heart on a sleeve
    Beats on a drum
    Raindrops on the ground
    Sun in the sky

    Messages from the queue
    Data on the cloud
    System on the mind
    System on the heart
    System on the soul

    Engineering all around
    Rat on a ring
