FACES OF FRIENDSHIP

Friends?
In this kind of world we are now,
They are quite scary
They expect me to know who they are
They expect me to greet them
If I don’t, they start hitting me
They make it a guessing game
I have to correctly guess they are my friends
If not, I’ll end up into trouble again.



Friends make a lot of difference. We can see them everywhere wearing different faces. When you’re going about your day, walking down the street, getting on the subway, in shopping malls, or watching football game, we meet our casual or close friends, exchanging nods, hi’s and hello’s, shaking hands with them.


As we mingle, we see their faces.
Some have happy faces, others have blank face
Some have angry scowls, others are sad, worried souls
Some are impatient while others are peaceful and content,
..yet they are our friends in different faces.

We pass by all those faces,
 and we know that behind each face… is a story.
Yes a story.
A story that runs the gambit of all human emotions.
                                                
She was motorbiking home..
No, not in her real home but somewhere she felt at home.
In a corner of no place where she could scream out loud with no voice…

Driving her way
Feeling hurt and angry
A car coming next to her, moving slowly, keeping pace with her.
A guy in the front passenger seat rolling down his window,
claiming as her friend, asking for direction,
Telling him, the guy not seemingly listened
The car stopped.
Braked her bike.
The guy jumped out of the car, grabbed her.
The guy unlocked the trunk, throwing her in.
The trunk lid banged shut.
she screamed.
Darkness.

Who is she? She’s a friend.
Who’s the gangster? He’s also a friend.
Who needs to rescue her? Supposedly a friend.
But what happened was…
she'd been rescued by a stranger
and that stranger has become her friend.

Sometimes, we trust someone so easily. We share our secrets only to find out that the person whom we trust just make us pay back with disrespect and insult and is not quite deserving of our trust and friendship. We blindly believe that the person we consider a friend is true to us and be with us through thick and thin. Late to realize that they are just wearing their masks and play the art of pretending.

It’s not easy nowadays to find a friend. Friendship should be without any profit. Nowadays if you have good status, a lot of people try to walk with you. But if you have nothing besides good heart, they don’t really care at all.

Money talks all over. Most people need friendship for benefits. If they know that you have something, they stay with you, but when hard time comes people always show their back and run away.

Beforehand, I didn’t believe much in real friendship..
or should I say, I didn’t notice because what I’ve seen were bullying and disrespect.
I made friends only for business and social needs until one day I realized that friendship is not a one-way street.


Let us try to see the positive faces of our friends

Sometimes you get mad with friends because they stop you from doing something out of the line. They correct your mistakes instead of tolerating your vices and caprices. Well, it’s not really a bad thing. If you have good friend he should be hard on you sometimes for your own good. If your friend always tell you about you are right just to please you, then you'll never gonna learn nor improve your life and you’ll be deprived from knowing your real worth as a person.

We all need a friend who make us real human not just a show off individual.
We need someone who would correct us and make us think of what is right or wrong.

I remember in old days people trust that much. They let their friends stay their house, they work together, share every single thing. But nowadays, if you bring someone to your house, they always break that trust.  They may call you brother or sister but when they saw family member they always put bad eye on them.

It would be easier to find God (God's words) than to find a trusted person nowadays.

I firmly believe that when you are in a relationship, either family, friend or lover, you gotta have respect for that relationship. Once you call someone a friend, show your genuine self and wear a pure silver heart.

They said true friend is hard to find. If you can have at least one true friend, you are one lucky person.
                                  


     
I am lucky then. I met many friends both in real and in cyber world and few of them I considered priceless. They are not easy to find. I feel so blessed because God gave them to me. I feel so proud because whenever I need them, they’re always there, never show their back no matter what happen and no matter we get mad, at the end we’re together again.
I found a precious gem in the heart of my true friends.
A Friend I can trust with close eyes ..
A Friend who will stand by me 'till the end of time.






Building trust takes ages, yet just a second to break it.




The different faces of friendship have us believe they are so different from us, yet we come to understand that behind those different faces, we all share the same “story”.

Getting back on the story of the abducted lady mentioned above…      
She questioned the people who used to greet her with beautiful smile each time she woke up
She questioned those whom she called friends
Where are they?
She needs answer
She needs light
She needs you..

…Whom she calls-  A FRIEND.

Do you have what you call a genuine friend?
Again If you have, you are one lucky person.

Life is Not Always What We Think It Is

What are you afraid of?
Alone in the dark?
Getting poor?
Failure?

Do you spend a good deal of time worrying about your status in life, wishing you could swap places with those rich and famous, who you think are living an easy and happy life? Does the phrase “I wish I were that person” has ever cross to your mind?

There are million people in this world. This million people have billion dreams and wishes. Dreams of having a good life with endless happiness.
A kind of happiness everyone wishes to have yet scared to take hard test because what they want is easy drive in the highways.

The moment you open your eyes and see the sunrise, it is the beginning moment of your journey for the day. You've seen hope, all you gonna do is move, otherwise the rising sun is gonna kick your butt. You have to get up -for the heck of just being alive and being tied up into complicated stuff- you still have to get up and it is a must.

That's how it is, we can't complain life.

NAKED STREET

"There are scenes hidden in an open street until clicked."  -Leone Moonrose-


Seeing the invisible. Notice the unnoticed.

Find the beauty through reality of the so-called natural in a concrete jungle... The street.


Observe everything on its environment. What do you see?
Aren't you seeing the naked truth in every lie? 
Aren't you seeing the naked street flashed before the lens of your naked eyes?


"It is not just about who are you seeing, it is all about what are you seeing,.. and WHY."

One fine morning, with a bunch of self confidence in my pocket, a bag of positive insights and a great desire to capture interesting subjects, I went out, headed towards the concrete jungle.




I was walking along the so-called busy street, with my DSLR camera in my hand, ready to click anything that captures my attention. The usual scenario of people going toand fro from their homes to respective business, works, schools or malls wearing different faces, flaunted before my eyes. 


It's a ty…

When our eyes met, there was magic

When was the first time we fall in love? How was the feeling?

      Going back when we first fall in love, on that very unforgettable date, the whole world seems to fade into the background.

      My lover is my no.1, the "center stage" as we call it.  I am yearning of his presence. I just love him so much that I dare not see anyone else. I always look forward of his message. A single "hi" is enough to keep me going the whole day. It made me complete. It made me wear a genuine smile to everyone I met. I didn't mind others opinion about  him. I didn't mind the world. I didn't mind if I was dreaming. All I mind was the sweet feeling of giving love and being loved.
      For sure you guys knew too about this feeling! You knew well how colorful the world of a person in love is. Our  heart can do wonders. We can make songs out from that feeling.  We can even make poems that help us convey the message from our heart. Being in love allows us to see the beauty …
