Life Never Moves In Reverse And Nothing Is Forever

I still remember, I was 7 year old at that time an old woman looked at my palm and said, “Your life will be full of drama. You can go so far away but at the age of 57 you will leave this world.” Now I am already 52 year old and if the “hula” will happen I have still five years to live.

(Note: Hula is a Pilipino Tag-alog with corresponding meaning in English as Forecast, Guess, Prediction and Prophecy. In other Dictionaries - Hula is a Polynesian dance characterized by undulating hips, miming movements of the arms and hands
and usually accompanied by rhythmic drumbeats and chants. It is also a Hawaiian dance performed by a woman others called it Rain Dance - a ritual dance intended to bring rain.)

If only I could choose to stay forever young,
So I could enjoy the rest of my life –
I’ll do it though I know it is impossible…

If I could only go back to my young age life
Where I lay in peace with the caring world
That gave me light, strength and hope
As a little child so full of innocence
With my neighbor’s angels:

Playing hide and seek
Swimming in the crystal river with the morning puff of wind
Climbing up the trees, crawling on sandy shores
Skipping over the


green meadows
And pretending flying like birds in the breeze…

Now I am in my Mid-Life
And it is claiming me restlessness
And itchy feet a symptom
My strength is deteriorating
I’m scared of hearing those seconds
Those passed when the clock sings
I can hear cries when the sun descends
As loud as the roaring thunder and lightning
Their sounds are bouncing back on high mountains
Brought by the strong wind – they caused fear!

I am certain that everything in this world comes and goes
Although I would wish to be always a youngster
And enjoy my youth to the utmost!
