Through my eyeglasses, I never knew that there could still be a clearer definition of my bare perspective. I realized I’m not pretty. I could tell the looks of the those faces of truths and lies. I could see things beyond things. I could see emotions and feelings. I could see disgust and hate.
If you start talking to me everyday and night, i’m obviously gonna get attached to you. Even if I never planned to in the first place, I will. So before you start getting close to me, make sure that you won’t just suddenly leave me. Cause you know, that happens to me alot.
Majority of the Filipino people lives below the poverty line. Living in an agitated daily schedule, the underprivileged father goes to work in the morning, thinking if he and his family will be eating anything for the day. At dawn, he walks along the narrow alley of the squatter area, surrounded by unclean and polluted water, fervently hoping his take-home pay would be sufficient for his family’s basic needs. As he reaches the doorstep, yet another dilemma confronts him. His four children have become more malnourished and their growth are stunted because of various infections and diseases. Poverty could actually be the reason or the result of poor health of these people. But is poverty going to be always a hindrance to a healthy life? I think, no. Because there are medical doctors. These physicians are fostered to live according to their mission: nurturing and saving lives.
And that is the mission I’m going to accomplish.
