Years Ago, the World Was Different

How was the world when we were still innocent souls?

We celebrated our birthday without paying. Now, we need to raise money to celebrate it. We even hide from our loved ones when that special day comes.

Blackberry can be picked in the mountains. It was abundant for ever hungry man. Now, it is being sold in mobile phone shops. And RIM owns BlackBerry now. Not God.

Cinderella was the most popular name then. Now, it is James Holmes. Coming second is Gloria. Coming third is Gloria Arroyo.

We played hide and seek with our neighbors. Now, we play the same game with loan sharks. We also play with Christian missionaries during Saturdays.

Music was played then. We swayed while our most favorite love song was being played.  Now, we play noise. And we wear headsets to be called a music lover.

Having an angelic face was something beautiful. It was unfair. Now, having a 10-digit bank deposits is truly beautiful. With the amount, we can amount the beauty that we need. Thanks to Dr. Vicki Belo and Dr. Manny Calayan.

In our younger years, gay men were in salons cutting hair. Now, gay men are in movies acting straight. They deny the truth but when they enter the pool, their eyes keep spotting 6-pack abs (protected with layers of extra-fats).

Shopping was done in malls in the early decades. Now, we have Zalora. We can shop anytime of the day while at home. We do not need to be checked by security guards to be able to buy jeans and shoes.
