Be free


Locked in this cage

My eyes were barren

And my body is cold


I ask myself what do I do?

Would I embrace darkness

Or chase the light


Oh freedom

Shower sunshine on my soul

Make me whole


Drizzle melodies in my bones

Lull me in your comfort

Yet stregthen me like an iron


For I stay here no more

I will now flap my wings and soar

Journey to places i’ve never been before




Bought a sketchpad
Then i draw sleeping cats
Paint the colors of spring

Dance with the winds
And listen to the rustle of leaves
As i sing

Melody resonates
Against the soft gleam of sunlight
Cheerfully butterflies take their flight

Glanced at my watch
Suddenly the time stops
I closed my eyes

It is in the hum of bees
the way the grass sways
In the cold breeze

That i remember those memories,
laughters and giggles
Of a little girl in her dress

Picking daisies
and dandelions
Then catches fireflies in the lush

It was vivid
A dream like image
where the edges almost fade

Perfect moments
Brought to life
In each stroke of a brush






About Me

“Not all of us can do great things.But we can do small things with great love.”

~Mother Teresa



At this age, I have been brought to the ups and downs of my life. I felt like there is a hole in my heart that I needed to fill. Like a missing part of who I am. I struggled real hard to find myself, I did so many things, I engage my self in doing activities in school, buy things others do, become an alien in front of a mirror. The more I do these things, the more I am becoming less myself.

Then one day I realize, I don’t need to look now where to find that missing piece. It is closer than I thought. A pen and paper are what I need and then I found this.

My passion for writing brought me to a wonderful journey of discovery.

I know now, that I don’t need to impress anyone, I don’t need to follow the trends and be someone I’m not. And I told myself ” their opinion should remain their opinion, who I am is not relative to what they want me to be”.

This blog is formed out of my love for writing, the thing that my heart seeks and where my soul will forever feel at ease.

Writing is home and will always be.

Thank you for reading. ❤

Much love, Rio Abby


16 things I learned this 2016

Keep Slaying😊


Every minute of every day brings new opportunities to learn something we’ve never know before. — Unknown

And this time I will share 16 of my many learnings this year. So keep reading and enjoy. 😉


Be independent and learn how to be alonebecause not everyone will stay and thats a hard reality that we have to accept.


Take your time and do not rush things because if you’re rushing things the outcome is usually not what we expect and its okay to procastinate and be a sloth all you want but always make sure you have time for what you are really supposed to be doing.


They are our safe haven, our comfort zone and our place of abode in times of inderence and criticism from the harsh reality of our naked world so spend more quality time with these…

Reflecting on Four Years of Blogging

I Gotta Keep Going

The Captain's Speech

What if no one reads my blog? What if someone leaves me a really mean comment? What if I’m criticized? What if my ideas are only interesting to me? What if this blog is a mistake? What if I just go to sleep, instead?

Four years ago today, those were just a few of the questions that shook every bone in my body as I sat in my bedroom with the lights off, in the wee hours of the morning, and started this blog.

I think back to that moment quite a bit. It’s a good one.

At no point in my life did the thought of starting a blog ever cross my mind, until a few days before I actually did. As weird as it sounds, it felt like something I had to do. As if the universe was pushing me in that direction.

And I’ll be honest, most…

One of the most important lessons life teaches us all is that your struggles develop your strengths. It is the only way to go about it, actually.
Strengths develop over time, they develop by you overcoming obstacles and solving problems.

Which begs the question: why do people run away from their problems? Why not face them? Why deny they exist? Why put the blame on other people?

Well, for once: it can be a frustrating process.

I remember when I first started writing. Fourteen years old, I thought I was phenomenal. Most folks who read my stuff said I was either a retard or fourteen years old. I was both. Kinda.

The truth of the matter is that I had to overcome this obstacle: what people thought of my writing.

And I had to keep writing…

And I had to do the work when I didn’t feel like it, or…

You Just Don’t Know It Yet

Today, breath and appreciate the beauty around you.

Isn’t wonderful to feel the warm of sunshine on your skin?

The blow of winds in your face?

Close your eyes and listen to the birds chirping aren’t they happy?

Open your eyes and look at the trees, lifting their branches high

The vast sky is smiling at you

Hear the laughters of children around

Or soft words from old couples

Look at lovers just strolling by

Families sharing a cup of tea in a shade

Eating biscuits that they’ve made

Whatever you do

Wherever you are

Take time to listen, see and hear

All the wonderful blessings here and there

Maybe a phone call from a friend

A pat on the shoulder to know they care

Or simple acts of kindness from a stranger

All these things are sent from above

Know that you are loved



He takes care of you

Always on your side.

A Poem For My Mother


A view from near the lake – San Antonio Resort, Roxas City, Capiz, Philippines

Ohh Take Me

Take me to the rythm of your songs
To the waves of your gentleness
To the laughters of your children
To the warmth of your embrace

Make me sleep in the serenity of your lullabies
Let me the see the beauty in each wonders around me
Comfort me through teardrops from the sky
Shine towards my soul

Whisper words of love
Heal my broken wounds
I know you’re hurting too
Mother nature i will save you
