When I Wanted To Give Up

And so it has been another morning,

When I thought that sleep was a sweet escape. . .

Yet, I need now to rise, remove those sheets of pretension,

It’s time to get up.


Maybe just call-in sick from work?

Yet, it was not really an option;

because my friend, reality had reminded me of the unpaid bills.

Fear decided to join, with snickering mocks that

I was a weakling.


In response of the turmoil I was in,

I threw the doubts, in tears I prayed, lifting His anthem of praise.

Lord, you carried me through today,

I know You will still do tomorrow.

This cause was inspired by a young lad, Abner A. Ibag, who has passed away after 18 precious years of existence. He has left a legacy of positivity and have become an inspiration to his family circle, friends and his acquaintances; a beaming beacon who has shared selfless acts of kindness, emanating an aura of joy with a contagious spirit of bringing smiles and laughter. Continuing this feat, from a period of hiatus, I aspire to continue sharing a heart of caring through social media- with stories and encouraging updates, and connecting people with the same mindset. Everyday stresses may become overwhelming, but know that you are not alone going through this. Would you like to join us? Feel free to send us your messages, inquiries and suggestions. Let's brighten up the world. Keep smiling!
