Life is so short...

To start this off, I was shocked by the news of Marky Cielo's passing. I mean, it's really surprising for someone like him to leave this world too early. Nakakapanghinayang, kasi it seems that he's a good guy, everyone loves him, and that the threshold of death sucked all of his bright dreams into null.

That made me think: Life is so short..

Let's face it: We don't know what may happen next, or who will be gone upon the next second. No one knows. Not even a vampire with clairvoyant abilities can foresee it. The future is always changing.

Ako, to tell you the truth, hindi ko pa rin matanggap ang fact na lahat may katapusan. It hurts. Actually all of us kind of feel the same. Meaning, I'm still in this stage where I'm in denial of that thing called death. I'm not yet ready to accept that inevitable fate.

Sometimes, I do wonder: What lies next after one's passing? Or is there?

Another what if question I guess.

One time I asked my friend about that thing. He loves philosophy kasi, and he's quite perceptive when it comes to these things.

It's like this:
Yuri- (while in class) Bro, nakakacurious nuh? Anu kaya meron after natin mamatay?
Friend- Baliw! Anung sinasabi mo dyan? Eh buhay pa tayo eh.
Yuri- I'm just curious lang.
Friend- Meron man o wala, I assure you, death can't eat away a good life that's worth it.
Yuri- .....

Yeah, he's right. We don't need to think that there's the fact that all of us will die. What's important, is that as long as we still breathe, we're able to enjoy this gift of life to the fullest and show to our loved ones how much they mean to us before it's too late.

And you know, I don't really believe that there's a thing called death.

Here, read this one:

"For God so loved the world, that He gave us His only Son, for us not to perish, but to have EVERLASTING LIFE."
-John 3:16

See, God gave us a promise of eternal life with him, as long as we live a GOOD LIFE THAT'S WORTH A PENNY.

I think that's what matters the most.
