Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

How’s Your Life Going?

How would your life read if it is written as a book? How was the prologue, the early pages were written? How’s each chapter progressing, do you know where it is going? If you’re given the chance to write the epilogue of your life story, how do you want it to end, and how do you want to be remembered?



‘Tis true, I’m like a book to your fine taste

My tale could top the world bestsellers’ list,

Or I shall vanish from your thoughts in haste.

But life’s circles give mine appealing twist.


There are moments when I would con this, too.

I’m oft tempted to change the clumsy parts

For sometimes I regret the things I do.

That’s pointless though, ’cause fresh chance each day starts.


My life, like a novel, ’tis in progress.

Every day’s like a page I celebrate

Weaving my colorful yarns of stories.

Always forward I go, at any rate.


I am making peace with the great author,

Getting good reviews from my creator.

(My Best Seller Story, By: Jeques B. Jamora, 2005)


How would your life appear on the silver screen if it’s a movie? Would you like what you’ll see when you watch your film. When did life started for you, where do you want the film to start to roll? How’s your character, the cinematography, the plot? If you watch your movie would you smile, or laugh, or cry. How would you feel? Are you making an impact, would your life make a blockbuster film?

If it rolls to a sudden halt now, have you already done something in the script of your life that made the difference?

How many more rolls of celluloid would you need for a happy ending?

Would your life story become an immortal film?

  2. jeques, theater and film are two of my favorite topics. you can read about my posts about some reviews on films and music. i must say that this something out of the box approach. a bestseller, is one interesting topic which is unusually intertwined in a poem.

    lovely poem with a certain bite into life.

  3. Marvin,

    My Best Seller Story is another of my poems in sonnet form – you will not believe this, but I composed it in my cell phone as a text message back in the Philippines. It started as a rough draft, then I polished it to refinement as it is now. Most of my earlier poems either I compose in the side space of the pages in the book I was reading, or through my cell phone as a text message or through my journal in a form of a scrap book. In my poem, “Guest book of thoughts,” I expressed the idea in too simple words how it works and you can find in that article sample of my journal entry in the form of a scrap book.


    I missed the Philippines because I had the luxury of time to keep a scrap book – it is always great to do things manually like writing. But with my kind of lifestyle now where time is precious – thi web nook works better for me – this became my scrap book. I don’t have to cut out pictures, I take them myself and just post them here like pasting manually photographs and clips to my scrapbook.

    I wish you well.

    ~ Jeques
