It Wasn’t A Sequel To Begin With
November 29, 2012 – 18:32 | No Comment

My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

A Seed of Dreams

Submitted by on November 3, 2009 – 05:232 Comments

Every dream is a seed
Planted deep inside
Waiting to grow
To bloom and to shine

The seed inside of me
Watered daily
Nurtured with care
Simply still has nothing to bear

The soil is damp
The sun is strong
The one thing stays stagnant
The root unformed

It’s just a seed
Laying in the ground
Patiently waiting
For my dreams to go beyond

Friends always ask me where do I find the strength to hold on to my dreams despite all the challenges that life has threw onto my path. Some view my determination to publish my own writings as nothing but just a dream. Some admire my perseverance in running towards my dream of becoming a novelist but doubt if I’d make it in the mere future. It was their seeds of disbelieve and doubts that push me further to want to prove them wrong; that indeed with determination to succeed, we can all achieve the very dream which we have once believed in when we were still a child. We just need that child-like faith to complete what we have begun. We just need to believe in ourselves when no one believes in us anymore. Persevere and your dreams will come true. Because if you don’t believe it, how can you make it come true?
