No pain. No gain.

There is no such thing as easy in this world. If you want something bad, you have to do something to get it. It’s funny how human crave for something they don’t have, while someone else is wishing to be in their place.

While we remind ourselves to be satisfied for what we have, we still work on gaining what we don’t have, and if we want them really bad, we are willing to make sacrifices.

I would never forget the day that I gave my all and made sacrifices just to have a better tomorrow. But I know that a year from now, I would thank myself for not listening to what people say, for taking the risk, for trying, for not giving up. There are just some days you are filled with emotions; that moment when you  just want to stop dreaming, give up and just be satisfied for what you have: A shelter, clothes, enough food, and warm family.

But when we have a shelter, we want it to be in our name. When we have food, we want it to be delicious. When we have clothes, we want it to be stylish, or at least presentable. And when we have a warm family… we want to give them the best that we can give them.

So why be satisfied when you know you can have better with just a little pain and hard work…or may be more?

This morning, I heard my dad matter a complain about life. I told him to better get to work because I don’t want to listen to such negativity. While you don’t have what you are  trying to get, stop complaining and instead work on them. It would make you productive and less negative. I know people think I dream so big, it’s ridiculous. But please, dreaming is the only free in this world and if you still deprive yourself of it, then you are missing something that makes life a little bit more meaningful.

And you can only stop dreaming when you start doing it. Every accomplishments start with the decision to try… what’s the lost in trying anyway? It will either get you there, or you will learn something that will get you there. Besides, if there’s no pain, there’s no gain.

Happy trying 🙂





Tonight the stars are so bright
The moon beams outside my window
Not a day or night passed by
When I don’t think of you

Tonight I wish to write something else
But my hand would only write your name
Then a symphony of love songs
Could be written in this poem

Tonight is especially cold
I wish you could hold me in your arms
Protect me from the cold of solitude
But I know that day would come

Tonight I wish you could sleep well
Because I dreamed about you again
That we could finally be together
Do you have the same dream too?

Just another dream


“I didn’t let myself believe that our love story could be real
But you held my hands as though we could be forever
And we walked together as if we were meant for each other
You kissed my lips like I’m your one and only
But one day I woke up with tears in my eyes, only to realize
Like any other beautiful story, you were just another dream
Though I could still taste the sweet touch of your lips”



So far away yet so near to me
Your voice is my lullaby
Your smile is my antidote
On a gloomy day or a rainy one

Does it matter if you’re a hundred miles away?
Or just next door? If I feel you’re just next to me
Or underneath my skin, I wouldn’t care
As long as you have me in your thoughts

Please think of only me, while you can’t be with me
I can bear the distance, time and place
But I’d rather turn away, if you’d think of someone else
It’s night fall where I am and dawn where you are

But I’m still awake, thinking of you
Hoping that you’re still sleeping and dreaming of me
Even though the distance between us
Is like end to end of the Great Wall of China
