Fearful, Fearless


I said I will never ever see you again.

But I have no choice.

You’re the only option, no one else but you.


I said as I embark into a journey of improbability.

Safe or not, I have no choice.

You’re unsteady, but you’re my only option.

DAY 41 of 50 Days of Gratefulness

Today, I am grateful that I survived MRT for three days!

Photo’s mine.

MRT or Manila Metro Rail Transit System is a rapid transit system of Metro Manila, Philippines and is composed of a single line that runs in the general direction along the north and south lanes of Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA). 

That statement is from Wikipedia and I guess I would not agree that it is rapid. Rapid refers to something so fast, our train system isn’t fast! (Though it is faster compared to commuting because the EDSA traffic is surely chaotic.)

Nonetheless, I have always been fearful of riding this train because of its often glitches. It has breakdown most of the time and it has crashed into its barrier last year, which left a lot injured!

Riding MRT is truly a fearful journey, but you have to be fearless, because you have no choice. 


Second Ride was actually written during an MRT ride yesterday morning. So I guess my creative juices are not exclusive for buses? 😀

  1. I laughed a little when I read “MRT.” Not because potential injury isn’t serious, but I was expecting something human and relational. Not that we don’t relate to our means of transport. I relate to my car. (We don’t have much bus service in my town, and the passenger trains are a good ways away.) And I’m glad that you are safe. And that you can be creative on the train. I hope your future rides on anything continue to be safe and creative for you.
