deviation in storage by shyshadow




i feel like i have dealt with sh*t long enough
that i started to smell of sh*t.

and i recognize that it's not only me
who started to stink. i know others who got tired
of the smell much earlier.

the sh*t that i'm refering to is negativity.

i always described myself as an optimistic kind of person.
a friend of mine told me that she wants to work closer with me
so my positivity might rub off on her.

this time, i befriended somebody who is just
constantly reeking of sh*t.

he would talk about how he's incredibly sleepy
or stressed out, that he's got money problems,
that his salary's not enough, that his skills are not enough,
that he might get fired.

on top of all that, he also got absent for a number of reasons.
he got sick, flu, gout, flu. his family got sick, daughter, wife,
mother, daughters. daughter broke an arm.
he's got family issues. he had to babysit.

this seeming statistically interesting case of series of unfortunate events
would of course create rousing of suspicions, therefore, creating more negativity.
and i started feeling hopeless about the workload piling up,
and that co-workers might keep wanting to leave
because they feel abandoned or they feel like they're being

so one night, i browsed the internet for articles about optimism.
i kept posting them on facebook absorbing the tips and
reminders. i woke up in the morning feeling more hopeful.

instead of whining about other people's weaknesses and things that i can't control,
i put my focus on my strengths and what i can control.
i don't really need to get overworked, there are genuine people that i can still rely on
who will make the necessary adjustments.

in the end, my frustrations were easily thrown out the window.
in the end, it didn't matter anymore if we were told the truth
or not. 
To The Hungry by lengkyx
To The Hungry
I created this thinking about a friend who went through the hard days
when he could barely afford bread and coffee but kept meeting with friends
to talk about business. This man had a vision and now he's doing great in his career.
A feature film in which he worked on is coming out next week. It's called Mauban - Ang Resiko.
If you're in the Philippines, go take a peek.

i figured how upset i was
when i broke my plate
chopping at the banana too harshly
i went out to look for something
that could make me smile
i dragged my feet towards the corner store
went in and stared at the freezer
for what seemed to be a very long time
i didn't have the strength
to reach for anything and i knew
in my heart
that no amount of ice cream
can ever take your place


was going to submit this as art but i don't know where i'm gonna put it.
it's not exactly poetic.
