A Poetess’ Crisis

Because I feel like I can’t write anything because I’m not in my worst mood.

Edited a photo instead (which I grabbed from google) with the words from a fellow Filipino.



Seems like forever since I last saw the beach.

Here’s what I was able to write (after mentally scribbling words) when I got home from our LGU outing.


The sea breeze kisses my cheeks

under the summer sun

With the waters humming a song

of serenity and fun.

The waves’ laughter, meeting my toes,

And splash that gives life to every joke.

In this place where there’s both peace and fest,

An escapade in search of zest.

Trees bend, listening to every heartbeat

With the sunshine that streaks through its leaves.

The burning sand sends warmth to these feet,

As I try to run and meet the sea.

The vast blue ocean welcomes every guest

Offers nothing but only its best.

Fierce as it ought to be,

I let the sun get through me.

Eyes closed, floating in delight.

The waves lead the way.

And I wish to stay like this,

Day after day.

Just another empty post :(

Haven’t posted anything this week.

I just feel so drained, frustrated and confused.

Been working every single day until my body says it can’t anymore. Til I’m sick. Til I have nothing else to give.

I apologize for the days I can’t even make a word. Nor have the time to read posts. Or the time I was nominated for an award but I couldn’t even respond. I wasn’t ignoring it. I wanted to give it time coz it’s something to give importance.

Well, for me, it is.

But there are just things happening in my life which demand my time. And it saddens me that I can’t make time to scribble  any single verse. It’s frustrating because I can’t do something that makes me feel better.

Maybe it’s one of the consequences of growing old and taking responsibilities not just for my own, but for my family and the unknown future.

Found something amazing!

Hi fellow bloggers! So as the title suggests, I found something amazing in the internet, which is about my username. Haha.

So I was searching for my name in the web and this one accidentally popped from nowhere. I used Viera because I was born on a Friday. In our dialect, Friday is translated as ‘Viernes’, and that’s where I got that. Never thought there’s more to it. hihi. Kinda happy here!

According to —

Meaning of Viera and the Origins of this baby name

– A brave girl. Also an Ukrainian form of the Slavic name Vera, meaning “faith”.

– It is a female name, suitable for baby girls.


The name Viera is very likely a(n) Czech variant of the name Vira.

Standing Ovation

I came from a job hunting today and now we’re going home.

But just earlier, the jeepney (it’s a means of transportation in the Philippines) we’re riding caught up with a bus (he said that the next bus would come after 30 minutes and it’s burning on the road since it’s summer so…) And it felt like a little scene in a movie or tv show (see? Me and my imaginations haha).

And I must say, I did something for the first time today.

I am now standing inside a bus.

Am I overreacting?

No! It really is my first time to stand in a bus. And I’m a little proud that I’m feeling okay. Just so you know, most of the times I feel dizzy when traveling and now I’m not.

But my real concern now is how to pass all the tests and get a job. 😀
