    The care, warmth we share,
    The kind memories,
    The pure intentions,
    The good actions,
    The truth,
    These are the 'love agape',
    Agape mouth-wide open eyes.

    Who thought that agape love would not last forever: "I was wrong."


    The care, un-bare,
    The honeyed words,
    Thy truth,
    The sheep, outside fair,
    Inside wolves,
    Worldly 'love'

    Surely this lasts...
    Until it don't.

    "I thought that 'love' would last forever: I was wrong."

    The Allegory of the Cave
    (by Plato)

    Two lovers found a way out of the cave.
    They saw the light and realities as they behave.
    Filled with joy even their faces couldn't hide.
    Back to the cave, they went, that people see Light.

    Alas! Under the gloom, the people said,
    "Your smile is a lie."
    Still, the two lovers continually journeyed,
    "Lo~ the soft face of love, if you wholeheartedly try."

    (Poem by Seraiah)

    Billie Series — Chapter 1

    • First Digital Meeting:
    Late 2020, I saw you on the screen. You were wearing black and green. You were smiling as you received many Grammys awards. Splendid, I could say. You made your voice sound so well. I thought, however, that maybe you were also like one of the many people, with ill-intent. Did your melodious voice carried an hidden agenda? Still, it was too early, and though I had (tentative) judgments, I shall not judge unfairly nor be judgmental.

    • My Dearest Brother, Our Bridge:
    Late 2020, kuya Ry posted a lot about you. Hmm... I think I gotta check her out too. Then I searched your songs, and this song stood out to me:

    • everything i wanted:

    I wondered about the thing/s that you deeply wanted. What was that? Not... it's 'not what you think'. What could have been easily thought of as an ambition for power, wealth or pleasure, etc., was actually a desire for death, suicide. *pierce* "I saw them standing right there, kinda thought they might care" *pierce*

    Actually at first, I didn't understood what it meant entirely, but then I searched for meanings... and *pierce*

    The lyrics were dead-honest and heartfelt and... heart-breaking.

    "If I knew it all then, would I do it again, would I do it again? If they knew what they said would go straight to my head, what would they say instead?" ×2

    Here's from me to you:

    "If I could change the way that you see yourself, you wouldn't wonder why you hear, 'God Loves You.'"

    It pierced my heart, your song and the story you tell me. It must've been God's will that I felt such deep empathy.

    • Re-igniting:
    Months passed and it became 2021, late March or early April. My dearest brother, kuya Ry, once again posted a lot about you. Hehe, again, I thought I gotta check you out too.

    • Revisiting Your Songs — A Mysterious Experience:
    Hearing your songs, they carried emotions, they carried stories. I thought, then, that there must've been something wrong. That your heart carried a heavy burden. Doing as I always did to anyone, so I did to you. I did cheered you, encouraged you, preached to you. As God's fellow creation and child, I tried to shed light and who knows if I could be of help to make your burden lighter? So I tried. I commented lots to your videos, making threads on YouTube. It's mysterious; why? I felt as though I was conversing with you. I comment this, and YouTube offers me this song suggestion. I comment, and this appears.

    It felt... elusive, or evasive, and as if it's pushing me away.

    You sang, "What do you want from me?"
    I commented,

    Me = ×
    God = ✓

    I really wanted nothing from you back then, for it was God that wanted something from you, that wanted you back, that wanted your heart... and even now, it IS God that wants.

    You sang, "When we all fall asleep, where do we go?"
    I commented that I (we) go to heaven (God) when we fall asleep (die).

    Then you sang, "I'm not your friend, or anything damn. You think that you're the man; I think, therefore, I am."
    I smiled, with contentment and confidence, because I know that at the very least, I did what I wanted: to spread love, agape love.


    • Happier Than Ever
    20 21, Weeks, months, passed by. I'm glad that you're happier than ever now. Couldn't explain much. Was it at first that my gestures spoke that

    "I don't want it; and I don't want to want you"?

    "But in my dreams I seem to be more honest..."

    Now you literally and figuratively appear in my dreams.

    I, I,

    "Silly me to fall in love with you."

    • Turn The Tables
    Your voice wasn't an echo or hallucination; it is the sound of pouring a cup of tea; it is the pleasant twitting of a bird — caged, or flying in the open air — singing an elegy, ode or a love song, singing its heart. Its journeys. The songs journey. Their journey. The journey.

    O, MY DEAR, I really wanted nothing from you back then; but now I want you as my future..... for, my dearest Billie,

    "I'm in love with my future"

    P.S. You're my future. �� With God. ✝️

    He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in that which is greater: and he that is unjust in that which is little, is unjust also in that which is greater.
    — Luke 16:10

    • Faithful in little here on This Earth? Faithful in great on New Earth.

    Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
    — Matthew 23:12

    • Humility is what truly makes us great.

    He has brought down the mighty from their thrones and exalted those of humble estate;
    — Luke 1:52

    • The irony of faith: that we become lowly in spirit/humble in order to be raised up by God.

    But God has promised us a new heaven and a new earth, where justice will rule. We are really looking forward to this!
    — 2 Peter 3:13

    Perhaps us humanity,

    our life on This Earth is God's way of measuring how little or how much we can be trusted with heavenly roles on our life on the New Earth.

    "The deepest desire of our flesh is sin and wickedness.
    The deepest desire of our soul is God and godliness."
    — Seraiah

    "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
    Pray, therefore, that you may not be tempted."

    I watched #Billie's i-D with Stormzy, I read some posts here on #Miraquill, I reflected on my beliefs, and I concluded with this #Quote.

    #Please #Crown #Lord

    I have re-realized that it's not necessary that I please the crowd, the world; but rather, it is to please the Crown, the Lord.

    It's not necessary to please everybody; it's enough, enough to be me.

  • seraiah_smiles 3d

    Anyone and anything can help, as long as it's with God's power. Without God, none can help. And though none can help, we always have God who can — and is willing to — help us all the time. The question is,

    "Are we willing to accept God and His help?"


    Inspired from St. Therese of Avila's #quote, "God alone suffices."

    People can help; material riches can help; but,

    The Plant

    I love the maturing of the plant
    The curves on its palms
    Which in time develop
    The plan it lays out for growth

    I love the maturing of the plant
    The markings on its hands
    Which in time get more distinct
    The destiny it has

    The curves plan its destiny
    The markings destines its plan

    I'm walking on the streets, and I saw a stray cat.
    My emotions were stirred for it was the opposite of very fat.
    I fed and pet and took it home to let it feel somewhere it belongs.
    But how sad that when from my bosom I laid it down to the floor,
    It quickly went outside the gate for it was scared to enter the door.

    I'm sorry I couldn't make this house the place you feel belong.
    Maybe I too was hasty, that I brought you down and you felt it's strong.
    It's different from what you wanted.
    Also, that I have a tom cat, mom sternly forbids...
    I think that's why each of them eventually leaves.

    I had to let you go and roam where your feet take you.
    Still, in my memory and heart you have a place—yes, you do.
    I haven't, couldn't speak with my mouth about comforting words;
    So I thought-fully wished that they do it—they, the angels.
    "Live.... LIVE WELL," Wherever I am and wherever you are, my only request of you is this.

    Maybe next time, we'll meet;
    And maybe that time, Mother will permit.
    But for now as I couldn't make you stay,
    Then for you I greatly and faith-fully pray.
