A Letter for a Brother

Dear Bro,


I am writing this letter with the hope that you’d come across it in your daily net browsing.

Though my head was filled with words to write for you, I found myself unable to spontaneously type them. It is because of the fact that I don’t know you well. When I try to remember the times we spent together as members of the same community, and the minutes we engaged in short but insightful conversations, I realized that they were very few. My apologies for not having reached out to you more often than I wish I did. If I could only turn back time, that’s what I’d do.

You may not have noticed, but I see you. Yes, I see you when you do things for other people. I see you when you do things for God. I see you whenever you bow your head to worship Him. I see you whenever you raise your arms to praise Him. And whenever I hear you shouting your praises to Him, I feel like my own prayers are amplified. The power in your voice carries with it whatever my heart whispers in silence. Your faith is what makes you very... charming

I have seen Jesus through you. May you never lose what makes you special.


Your sister forever,
Hencel Lauren

Magkasing-bobo Lang Tayo

‘Pag may nagsasabing matalino ako
Ako’y natatawa sa hiya
Mga bagay na ‘di kaya ng utak ko
Bigla kong naaalala

Math at Physics nalang halimbawa
Chemistry at Logic ko’y pasang-awa
Tatlo lamang ang alam kong luto:
Hilaw, sunog, at tsamba

Oras ng pagligo’y ‘di matantiya
Late ngayon at bukas, pati sa makalawa
Kuripot nga, pero ‘di alam pa’no mag-ipon
Nars ako ngunit ‘pag nagkakasakit…
Sa nanay kong teacher ako nagtatanong

I thought friends kami, siya pala’y enemy ko
Yung mga ‘di ko type, naging boyfriend/s ko
Yung akala kong tama, mali pala
Yung ‘di ko dapat pagkatiwalaan…
Madalas, dun pa’ko naniniwala

Hindi lahat ng bagay sa mundo
Nadadaan sa pa-English-English lang
Kung magaling kang magprito
Sa akin, ika’y may isang lamang

Kaya aking kapatid, ito’y tandaan mo
We’re the same; Matalino tayo
Kung ‘di man, isa lang ang ibig sabihin nun
Ano pa ba? Edi, we’re magkasing-bobo.
