My First Gold

I’m really sleepy and am about to sleep but as I check my email, I receive great news that inspire me to take time to post something on my blog today.

Just this month, I stumbled upon this contest…



It’s a contest in for Filipino writers. I was inspired to write and submit something.

I haven’t checked my emails for days and checking today, I receive a message that the contest has ended.



To my surprise, I see this…



I’m really happy to win especially it’s my first gold!! I didn’t spend that much time writing the poem but I did spend so much emotions in writing it. I am really happy to know that this poem has been greatly appreciated by the readers and the judge of the contest.

I would like to express my gratitude to Wanderess for picking my poem to win and of course, to all the readers. In AllPoetry’s site, this is my most read poem so far.

Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!

To WordPress readers, you can view this poem here. I’m glad to share with you the poem, Kapalit ay Luha. Hope you like it.


You can’t just give up

Wow! I really love articles written by mteodoraa. I have loved a lot of her writings. This post strikes me the most so I am reblogging it.

Manić Teodora

Magic happens to those who don’t give up even when they don’t have strength to keep going. Universe keeps falling in love in unbeatable heart.

Magija se događa onima koji ne odustaju čak i onda kada nemaju snage da se bore dalje. Univerzum se uvek zaljubljuje u nepobediva srca. 

How many times have you felt tiredness in your heart, something heavy on your soul, weakness and need for air, and it felt like there’s none of it. How many times have you wanted to run away from rest of the world, close inside four walls, just to disappear? How many times have you thought that you were beaten up, that they succeeded to bring you down, that you are deep down, on bottom? How many times have you given up on yourself, life, and world? How many times have you given up, and you shouldn’t have? You should have stayed…

1st Anniversary

Hi! It has been a busy year for me and I haven’t posted any new poem for quite a while. As I check this site today, I just realize that yesterday was IdeaStrike’s first anniversary. It may be a day late but I hope that it’s not too late to celebrate.


Thank you to the readers who keep coming back to this site. I’ll be posting new poems more frequently.

To start, hope you’ll like this new poem, You Never Learned to Fly. This story really happened a couple of months ago. I wrote the poem the next day but didn’t get a chance to post it yet.

There are other poems just waiting to be posted so hope you can continue to come back and read.

Mabuhay! My Independence Day Poem

A month ago, I posted here in my blog a poem for the Independence Day which my country, the Philippines, celebrated last June 12. It was a poem I wrote for a contest in Today, as I am browsing my emails, I am surprised and happy to see that I get an Honorable Winner award for this poem.


For those who haven’t read the poem yet, hope you’ll take time to read Bandila, Sa Sagisag Mo.

Thank you to Gemme Scribe for starting this contest and thank you for selecting my poem to be among the finalist.
