World Poetry Day

It happened not so long ago
When I found myself seated somewhere
Staring blankly out of nowhere
I got fond of putting my thoughts into my heart
And from my heart
to pen and paper
The words coming from my mind
The feelings coming from my heart
The emotions within
Come out through writing and poetry
I am myself when I write
For I get to express what I truly feel
Keeping it raw
Keeping it real

I write because it satisfies me
I write best in the state of melancholy
I write when I am sad–to release the misery
I write when I am happy–to share the joy
I write when I am angry– to unleash the fury
I write when I am feeling everything
I also write when I feel nothing
I write the things that went wrong
And the things that could have been right
It is a way for me to connect with life
A way to see reality
A clearer picture of what’s in front of me
With a touch of a little fantasy
Dealing with this life alone
Inside this tiny world of my own.

  5. Hello Menggay. I know my comment is super late for your newly published poem. But it’s better late than never right.? Many would have told you already how they’re a fan of you and the many things you do and I don’t want to be left out so I’m saying that more than anything else your wit and intelligence makes me love you more. You also inspire me to write more and read more. Whenever I read your blogs, as if it gives my mind a picture of how I also want to write. I know that what’s happening to your life are all surreal for you and I hope that you will not be burned out and just quit all of a sudden. I know that I seem very dictator here in terms of my hope for you and you will forever seen in showbiz but my memory is still crystal clear when Ms. Kris asked you if how long will you be in the showbiz and you said that not that long. I know I am being selfish here coz I want to see you and RJ all the time in the limelight. I haven’t seen you both personally and you personally don’t know me but I always put my trust on you. That would be your charm both. You make us believe in you, nothing more but you. As I have said, I haven’t seen you both personally but I’m being contented seeing you in front of the TV, in your 2 movies and tons of magazines and in all the updates you both have. I just hope one day I have the courage to go on a trip just to see you either in EB or in any of your shows. (I have been always a Team Province or Team Bahay. I know I need not to be jealous but I am feeling a bit jealous to team abroad coz even though they’re so far from you, they’re making a way and have the chance to see you) I know I need to go out if I want to see you. I just don’t have the guts til now but I always make a way to be connected to you like buying the things you endorses or in the magazines that you’re in and even live streaming to every event of ADN. I tried to team up with some of the fans club but none of them would let me. Maybe because I’m so faraway and no one in those groups know me. I hope that you write more or update your blogs more. I know I’m requesting and being so demanding but whenever you have time, I hope you get to update coz it makes me the happiest person. I am thankful to God for He shared a person like you to the world. I love you & RJ and this loyal girl will always believe you, will always pray for you and will stick to you in my lifetime. Love lots Menggay. I already occupied so much space in the comment box. I want you to count the stars and that’s how I love you. ?????????
    PS if you have time (which I think it’s very little) I hope you also get to read my WordPress about my poems and articles inspired by you and RJ.

    You’re a great writer and poet. I’ll keep on reading your posts for as long as I can. ??? Experiences do bring deeper reflections and more substance in our lives. Take care.

    I’m a fan, followed you since that day you saw Alden watching you on the split screen. I was on leave that day, still grieving from the loss of the baby I gave birth to three months too early. I can say that you and Alden helped cope with my grief. Anyway, I too have a blog. I’d love a visit from you
    when you have time.

    All the best.
    Ms. Claire

    Im a fan of Maine Mendoza when i started watching Eat bulaga, and the day that you saw Alden in Screen. Im also a fan of Alden Richards, i feels like happy kapag nakikita ko kayong dalawa nakakawala ng pagod, nakakawala ng stress masaya, kapag napapanood kayo araw araw sa kalyeserye but this time wala na un kalyeserye pero masaya ako kasi napapanood ko kayo sa telebabad sa GMA na Destined to be yours., Hoping na bumalik un Kalyeserye sa tanghali at more projects in you. Sana makita ko kayo in person (hoping), Sana wag kayong bumitaw sa isa’t isa. ALDUB is the best loveteam for me. Thank you Maine 🙂
