Peddler

The square makes way, for another new day
The waters glitter, from the fountain in the center
The trees give shelter, birds give their song,
Along comes the peddler, humming all along
She came from a poor family, not caring for the fact
She knew she had to deal with it, knew she had to act
With her basket full of stuff, she peddles with joy
But she didn’t know her innocence, will be taken by a boy
At a young age, life was full of smiles
We only know how to laugh; we don’t know how easily we cry
This age perhaps certainly, maybe the best any of us has ever had
Things were just black and white, this is good, and this is bad
Perhaps when she grows up, she’ll remember all along,
Her happy times peddling, all the while singing a song
When we need happiness, there is one thing sure to make us smile
Our childhood, just go back to it, the time where everything was worthwhile

About Me

My photo

I love traveling and being immersed with different cultures. It has cultivated my love for learning and has exposed me to different perspectives. I'm a travel specialist during the day, while writing has always been my first love (considering my love of books, of course). I am an editor of Lapis sa Kalye (Hindi ito ang normal mong nababasa)**a Facebook page which promotes Philippine Literature, one of the writers of the published book - **PENDULUM. I was also the Editor in Chief of our online magazine which published free literary works. I also post my works in Wattpad reaching more than 70k reads.

And when I need a real breather, I take pictures and edit them. I'm still developing my style in this area, I don't usually follow Photography rules, I just try to have fun along the way.
