Light Rail Transit or commonly known as LRT of the Philippines is one of the most effective way of transportation in Metro Manila.
There was a time before that I would ride LRT just to think. Because it gives me ‘ME’ time. I just have to wait for the train to arrive at my destination and while waiting, I have time to think about everything.
Today, as I write this piece, I am riding the train. And my first thought is this:
WHEN I was 18, I wrote my plans for myself when I reach 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25.
Now as I recall those plans, I find myself extending the time frame.
I’ll be 25 next month and I am starting to conceive a little baby made of fear inside me.
I told myself before that I won’t be scared of what it is to come but rather feel exhilaration. The child within me then was so excited of the big world. She was positive. She was always ready for everything. But why am I feeling otherwise? Did she grow up already? Did she see how hard it is to live in the real world? Where is she hiding?
I badly want her back.
