In one way or another, just life itself is nothing more than a constant fight; and for many that fight is just to survive.
Life is and can be for many nothing more than a depressing battle that never seems to end; and we all would prefer to try something new, but when we become locked in tight with walls to high and solid rock at our feet, what can we do? For 15 months our power comes from the sellers home for the 20x13 storage building my wife and I live in with some additions I have been working on with bamboo, coco lumber and hollow block. We have some rice, a few stale crackers and little more. The 70cc Rusi scooter I ride has had a flat tire and the inner tube cost is far to great. Our 1998 Kia also has a flat for months now plus other needs. My wife at 40 has a weak heart and many body aches and pains for being so young, and Ensure Gold Heart Friendly drink helps her -- but at 2600 peso [$25] a large can, it's just something impossible. Mylene is also a 4th grade school teacher who rides her scooter to work each day rain or shine, and when it pours hard in the mornings. . it's so depressing for me to have to watch her ride off. As far as her pay its only about $80 per month because of so many teacher loans we have needed over the years to just survive. . . and soon our power will be cut altogether, so we will need a generator that costs 15000 peso or about $400. We both live on faith, pray and wait because with my age at 58, an old head injury, no social security and no pension while living in the Philippines where there is no work for me. . sooner or later we just are ready to brake ---damn life sure can be tough for people all over this world under mans pathetic rule full of lies and corruption.
