A story that shocked me to my very core.
A 33 year-old female doctor was shot by his father. It was all over our local news here.
She was my sister-in-law’s colleague, neighbor and friend.
I don’t know her personally, but I’d like to be her on the last day of her life.

I woke up at the sound of my alarm clock. I tried to open my heavy eyelids and thought about my plans for today. I stretched my arms and legs as far as possible to gear me up for this unexpected day. I sat up and closed my eyes for a brief prayer of thankfulness.
I checked my phone for new messages and checked my calendar as well.
We have a conference at WestTown hotel with my colleagues. I prepared my clothes and laid them on my bed carefully. I took my shower longer than the usual.
Ate my breakfast and hurriedly went to the hotel.
It was so nice to be around people who share your interest in your profession. We chatted up non-stop because some of them I haven’t seen in years.
I listened to the lecture, took a few notes, and ate the free food.
Time just sprints when you’re having such a wonderful time. I then went to SM to buy some personal stuff because they were having a sale.
I had a little too much fun strolling around that the sun was long gone when we stepped out of the mall. I went home stat.
I had this bad weird feeling as I opened our gate.
I heard war.
War of swear words.
Coming form my mom and my drunken dad.
I was hesitant to open our door.
But I did enter.
My dad was pointing the gun straight at my mom’s face.
I joined the screaming party.
I was shouting words, I couldn’t remember them.
My mind was so outraged with all the chaos
The screaming and the madness continued for a couple of minutes.
I closed my eyes.
And in a split second, I realized that he was going to do it.
Pull the trigger.
And without any hesitations, I jumped in front of my scared mother..
And felt the bullet burning in my chest.
I took my last breath.

you saw me.. you kept talking.
I was listening.
you tapped my back.
i said "hey" et. that was it.
I saw kids having fun.
I got jealous.
if only..I could tell you everything.
i could open myself and mind
to let everything out.
I cry and just keep everything to myself.
because that's who i am.

Runaway, coz I can’t stop this thing we’ve started
Runaway, it’s the wrong thing that’s chasing me
But I guess its easier said than done…
I knew from the start
You were secretly rooting for us to pull through.. somehow.
We’re like a blurred picture uncertain of our image

He was.. yes he was…
Another day to work my neurons..
I hold my spirits down low..
He walked.. yes he walked..
Et. The world seemed so random
of ABC’s and 123’s
Wanting some more..
He smiled.. yes he smiled..
A dinosaur stomped on me..
On my invisible wings..
These I will never forget..
He blinked yes he blinked..
Of laughter and sorrow..
Slowly swimming into his stares..
And kept it..

Jumping around to be fit and to fit..
This could be it..
Or am I just wearing my slippers
on the wrong foot again..
I could be a thick giant text book..
Intimidating yet can be interesting
to those who love interests…
et you could be a big leaver with a stupid suitcase..
you chose to leave..

for you to get by
i hope you find the gift in me..
miles we've been apart..
distance we've been misguided..
tongues used to cross..
for you will be my forever..
like a ghost..
eager to do her unfinished business..
i.. stand here...
with arms wide open..
and.. eyes closed..

just somehow in my rectangled bed...
I'm waaay too tired..
sometimes even just to think..
heartaches were a mere chapter in my night stills..
I may be weak..
but I know I can make it..
It's just a simple mixture of triumphs and tragedies..
Help me breathe again..
