Fever dream (I want to stay)
What is to wake? As days blur by and memory fails, so too does the line between dream and reality fade. One is as ephemeral as the other. Perhaps, it is in this realm of warped time and lost futures, of muted joys and terrors, where things make more sense.

Pagsulong sa kabila ng pagsubok
Bagamat matagal at paulit-ulit na tayong naghihigpit at lumuluwag sa mga kwarantin na ipinapatupad sa ating bansa, iisa lang ang nababakas sa mga buhay ng mga Pilipino araw-araw, pagsulong at pagtataguyod sa pamilya sa kabila ng pagsubok na sinasagupa araw-araw.
Nababata ng mga manggagawa ang lahat para sa kanilang mga pamilya.
Nadagdag isuot araw-araw ang proteksyon laban sa nakakahawang sakit,
pero talaga nga bang napoproteksyunan tayo sa totoong sakit sa bansa?
“Ano nga ba ang tunay na pagsubok? Ang Pandemya o ang sistema?”
– Tanong ng Pilipinong lumalaban.

Stay with me till the sun sets and we rise together
The fury, the fire, the glory of endings and beginnings,
the bone melting pain of it all
Razel Ann Pelandas Esteban (Student)
Life goes on… and we will not stop pushing for a better tomorrow. Not now, not ever.
