Every concern citizen in this country is already pissed-off and wishing that this fragmented reality does not exist. By Monday, we will be facing another irrational belief that everything is going to change by cause of a new Barangay Officers will be proclaimed as winners and would start something new in the start of everything, the run-down of places in the big city.

Coherent, it will never be. This Republic, we consider it sold. It was sold to the plunderers, scammers and corrupt politicians who promised us the sun, moon and stars for a vote, that according to them will change our lives. They were right. The vote changed our lives. Life that has become awful and frustrating.

I’m sitting here, writing these words, thinking about life, my bank account, work and how it will be for the next days. As it goes by in my half-filled brain, I’m starting to feel a little bit sluggish. We are not deserving of this fiasco. In this world where everything will be left undone and unsaid, it is very rare that opinions will count and lives would be changed. We’re losing it for the Republic. We may not give up but ‘they’ have given up on us, a long time ago already.

Politicians are still choosing their convenience above anything else and imposing that citizens owe them something big, but then again they don’t feel otherwise. They’ve lost one thing that kindness and a true human being should have. Sad that it came to this yet we can’t do anything more to take it back.
