In a momentIn a moment of despair,In a moment7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
We never know what we do,
With the emotions running high,
We need to learn to hang on and think wise.
In a moment of pain,
Where the hurt grows stronger,
Making one weaker and desolate,
There should be a reminder that theres a better day coming soon.
In a moment of happiness,
We should never forget,
That itll never last forever,
So treasure it to make it an everlasting memory.
In a moment of love,
Ask yourself whether it is right,
Do you give more than you take,
Is it right and are you sure.
In a moment of loneliness,
One may find that the world spins slow,
But in truth it is a state of mind,
Which keeps you from seeing the brighter side of life.
In a moment of lust,
Think ahead of your actions,
Make sure you dont do anything,
To hurt anyones feelings.
In a moment of lying,
Dont ever take things for granted,
For the pain and hurt that you might create,
Will last longer and hurt ever more.
In a moment like this,

Tempt Me No MoreTemptation - It's a dangerous thing,Tempt Me No More5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Give it one little inch, it will take more than a mile,
Miles upon miles racked up on my odometer so far,
How to stop? A mystery that perplexed me,
Until one day, when all seemed lost,
Deep in my mind as I slept,
I wandered aimlessly, not knowing what's happening,
Suddenly, there it is, the terrible thing known only as sin,
It takes many forms, and can deceive even the purest man,
Each personal one clawed at me, trying to pull me back in,
I ran, and ran, but got nowhere on my own,
I slipped and fell, and the sin surrounded me,
Making me weaker with every second,
There I was on my knees,
Head bowed in humility,
I then raised my eyes to Heaven
With tears streaming down, I say,
"God, please forgive me!"
In an instant, the skies above open,
A hand stretched down, shining bright with light,
I looked up, I saw Someone smiling,
A voice spoke, with love and care,
It said, "Do not fear, I am here,"
The hand took my hand, and pulled me out of my pit of shame
A fresh startCome and drink deep in the well of belief. Know that even when you do wrong, I am still here for you. Come to me. Talk to me. Tell me what is on your heart. I already know anyway, so we might as well get things out in the open where we can deal with them.A fresh start2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
You see, when you confess your sins, it shows me that you understand what was wrong. When your heart is repentant, I clear the slate and send your sin as far as the east is from the west-forgiven and forgotten.
All your sins have already been covered at the cross, washed by the blood of my beloved Son. So come to me, my child. I can heal and forgive and make you clean.
Recieve my grace. Each confession ushers in a fresh start.
Must Be SadVanellope had been told over and over again the exact same statement:Must Be Sad2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
You must be sad.
It was a funny thing, how others looked at a situation and immediately guessed what emotions ran through your head. And the worst part was, they always thought they were right. Like now, for instance. She had been approached by so many characters, some familiar and others not, and all of them said the same thing more or less;
You must be sad.
And so she listened to all of them and she waited for that feeling, sadness, to come. But it didn't. It seemed to refuse to come, refused to enter her system and fill her coding. No matter how many times they said it to her -you must be sad- she simply wasn't.
She'd gone to the funeral. But halfway through she'd left. Walked calmly out of the doors, despite the looks, and just… left, tugging the hood of her sweatshirt up as she did. He'd always teased her about that dress, so she hadn't worn it
People said she'd left because she was too emotional, that she could

Great, another boring science class and now the teacher has to leave for an unexpected meeting. I was lying on the floor staring at the substitute teacher, other kids' feet, backpacks and trash. I looked back up at Fiona. She was sitting at her little desk working furiously on a quiz. I could see the gears grinding against her skull as she was trying to remember an answer. She tied her hair in a loose ponytail to keep her hair out of her eyes while she worked. She was also wearing her mask again. Everyone has a mask you know, like most people have daemons. Daemons, for your information, are animal manifestations of a persons soul. We are just not corporal nor visible to other human beings, just other daemons. I myself is Fi's Daemon and will from hereon in narrate the story. Deal. I think Fiona's mask would look like a clown mask, always smiling though lately the ribbons in the back have been wearing thin. The bell rang. The mass of sophomores g

And you got me living in the past
Come on and pick me up
Somebody clear the wreckage from the blast"
This year I resolve to forget you
To leave behind your bright eyes
Your curly hair
And your infectious smile
In your brown eyes I once found pleasure
Now I only see pain
In your voice I once found comfort
Now I only find disarray
I resolve that this daytime nightmare will finally end
So I can finally dream again
Of blue skies
And fields of gold
And of someone else's eyes.
A woman is missing.A woman is missing.A woman is missing.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My sweater is knit too loose and the wind blows through.
The leaves are done changing and are waiting to fall.
I think of them collaged against my morning-damp windshield;
they will mostly be red. My wipers will push them off;
I will forget about them. But inbetween these thoughts
my brain hums. A woman is missing and I cannot forget.
Two weeks ago the leaves were mostly green and yellow.
Two weeks ago a woman went missing.
I didn't know her but she went missing and today
I am standing at a wall covered with candles and
I am rolling her name over my tongue and I am thinking.
I am thinking and praying, but I am not hoping.
A woman went missing; a woman is missing.
I keep going to work, getting up each day.
I brush my teeth, comb my hair, pack my lunch, drive my car.
And mostly I do not think about her. But sometimes I do.
Sometimes the hairs on my neck stand up and the two blocks
between the library and the coffee shop are impossibly long.

The choice is yoursFrom the beginning of time, I chose you. I have loved you and have held your best interests close at heart, but I will not force you to choose me. The decision to obey me or reject me is yours, just as it was for my people Israel. But don't be mislead, child. This is not a decision about where you will live, or what career you will pursue, or what your next major purchase will be. This choice is a matter of life and death. Choose me, and you will choose life-an abundant life, filled with my love, my grace, my mercy.The choice is yours3 years ago in Editorial More Like This

Wala din ako.
Wala na akong magagawa,

Wala nang masasaya,
At wala nang ma gagawa.
Ang aking isang sasabihin,
Ay hindi na magagawa.
Kung wala ka sa buhay ko,

Walang kasama sa gagawin,
At walang ma bibigyan nang mahalin.
Mahal ko ikaw kasi,
Hindi ko alam kung pano sasabihin.
Kung wala ikaw,
Wala na akong magagawa.
Marami na ang aking mga hindi na gagawa.
Hindi ko na masabi sa iyo na mahal ko ikaw.
Kung na mimiss mo ako,
Gusto ko sasabihin mo, para ma sabi ko rin.
Kung gusto mo ako,
At wala ako dyan.
Sabihin mo lang,
At ibulong mo sa hangin.
Yung hangin ay ibibigay sa akin,
Para ma kita ko kung anong sasabihin mo.
Kung wala ka dito,
Ma wawala din ako.
Yung puso ko,
Naka pako na sa iyong muka at puso,
Yung puso ko,
Binigay ko na.
Kung wala ka dito,
Hindi ko alam, pero siguro,
Wala din ako.

Chapter 24: Judge, Jury, and Executioner
"She has to die, Cas!"
"It's against nature for her to exist!"
"She's a prophet! We can't touch her!"
"God chose her! He must want her to be alive!"
"Enough!" Cas shouted, silencing everyone in front of him. There had to be at least fifty angels there. Elizabeth's garrison was there, Nathaniel, too, as well as several other garrisons. They all wanted to weigh in.
"Cas, please," Nathaniel stepped forward. "You've met Trea! You know she's harmless! You know, unless you're a monster."
"Oh, you mean like she is?" another angel stepped forward. Nate knew her, too. Her name was Annabelle. "And I'm not even sure why you're allowed to weigh in on this! You ditched us, remember?"
"So did he!" Nate gestured to Cas. "And you are following his every order! So did Gabriel! Hell, Gabriel left with me! And if he were still alive, you can't tell me you wouldn't listen to him! So, sorry, Annabelle, your argument is invalid!"

Sa mga jeep na ating sinasakyan
Pauwi mula sa paaralan,
Isang matatag na pagkakaibigan
Ang nabuo na ng tuluyan.
Sa ating mga kwentuhan,
Mga pagtatalo't tawanan,
Mga sarili'y kinilala ng lubusan
Sa bawat araw na nagdaan.
Sa tuwing kailangan ng isang kaibigan
Karamay o di kaya'y kausap man lang,
Ang bawat isa ay laging nariyan
Sa loob ay nagpapagaan.
Ang sarap balikan ng nakaraan,
Nakaraan na puno ng kasiyahan.
Ngunit ano ang kinahantungan
Ng buhay nating magkaibigan?
Iilang mga salita ang sumira
Sa umusbong na pagkakaibigan
Pagkakaibigan na sana'y walang katapusan,
Nauwi sa luha't kapighatian.
Ngayo'y mag-isa na lamang
Sa mga jeep na ating sinasakyan
Noong ang ating pagkakaibigan
Ay tila walang hanggan.

9 Consejos para tu logotipo.9 Consejos para tu logotipo.5 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Diseñar logotipos es una de las cosas más difíciles a las que un diseñador se enfrenta. Pese a esto, la mayoría de los diseñadores sobre todo los principiantes siguen creyendo que es una cosa muy fácil y trivial. En el mundo hay muy pocos grandes diseñadores de logotipos pero habrá algunos que saben hacer un trabajo decente cuando hace falta. Reciente es difícil encontrar diseñadores de logos que por lo menos no produzcan basura.
No puedo decirte como ser un gran diseñador de logotipos (si lo supiera, lo sería), para eso hace falta experiencia, preparación y quizá talento. Pero lo que puedo es darte unos cuantos consejos, para que al menos, tus diseños apesten un poco menos y quizá se aproximen a algo bueno.
1. No uses más de una tipografía.

10 cosas que no te enseñan en tu escuela de diseño
El paso del mundo académico al laboral es siempre difícil, particularmente para quienes trabajamos en el campo del diseño porque nos vemos obligados a aprender las condiciones en las que se trabaja sobre la marcha.
Este post recoge 10 cosas que habitualmente no te enseñan pero deberías saber para dar el salto al mundo profesional.
1. Tu diploma no te ayuda a encontrar trabajo
Pero tu portafolio sí. Por supuesto que es bueno tener una educación en diseño y un título que lo pruebe, pero cuando se trata de obtener dinero de tus clientes ellos quieren ver de lo que eres capaz, no un diploma.
2. El buen diseño lleva tiempo, no fijar fechas límites muy ajustadas
Cuando estás en la escuela de diseño los profesores fijan las fechas de entrega de los trabajos y tratan de darte el tiempo suficiente. Tu jefe o tu cliente no serán como tu profesore

Another announcement, another point added to the disaster unfolding
I'm here by the T.V, while its hope still that I see myself holding
The sun is but bright, but warm in the sky so blue
Clouds around here are rolling on by too
But by the towers, and by my husband are they blacker than smoke
Through the screen shows another veil, another form of hatred
But why? But how? Answers swirling in my head that I wish were answered
How could someone be so cold, to murder their own kindred
Why would someone believe, their life for sacrifice be achieving something?
Suicide they say, is a permanent answer, for a temporary problem
I believe my husband is still alive, I believe that his hope is still strong
One thousand times I've been right, will this be my first wrong?
The wind but blows softly on my face, through my open door
I wish he could feel what I'm feeling, think what I'm thinking and more
I wish he was safe, that he could see me again, because I want him here
It's not time yet, it's
