Gravity

Oh Gravity of the Earth,
constantly, i know you’re 9.8
But it seems you’re getting stronger
Coz ive been down since December

Your force had been so unkind,
Avoiding me to get unwind.
Perhaps your values are constant
you’re pulling me every month.

Sigh! Gravity of the World.
I have these words, yet untold.
Hear them from my tormented heart,
Empathize! so I could mend and start.

Application Poem

I am Rastaval Marley (name edited for this blog)
I became 30, 4 months ago
I’d like to say these rhymes
Describing myself in every line

I am someone who loves videography
And a huge fan of photography
Essential for this kind of job
Web developing is also I love

Hard-worker I use to say
I hate my works to get delayed
Performing jobs filled with enthusiasm
A token to show my professionalism

I take ownership to my work
As if i own the project i took
Giving the fullest of my skills
working hard to pay the bills

I don’t have work currently
But will get one if given a chance wishfully
I’ll surely give value if ever you hire me
Not to disappoint instead take it responsibly

I can get easily motivated
When I find my work fully completed
Especially when my boss is happy
With the job i work on nightly

I am into music and Bono of U2 is my idol
That’s how I learned poetry and made this all
I wish you don’t find this conceited
And please don’t say my introduction is stupid. 🙂

This is just a brief of something about me,
Eventually, everything will be disclosed when you see me,
Discussing everything if you see me over skype,
Boasting and lying is not my type.

When you get decided of interviewing me
Add me to skype “rastaval1”, please feel free
I look forward to be summoned for an interview
So I can say everything not just few.

this poem has been submitted and recognized by the client last year….(I got the job as a video editor) please bear with it, for it was written instantly and without proofreading. I prefer to leave it as is.

I am a man

I am a man
for i was born with reasons.
I am a man
for i was born with lessons.

I am a man
for i was born male
I am a man
for its the way i feel.

I am a man
for I can take courage.
I am a man
for I don’t mind if it’s porridge

I am a man
for you to know
I am a man
for you to show.

I am a man
for you to understand.
I am a man
with your discrepancies im gonna over come.

Fake Friends

  
☓ FF = Friends Forever 

✓ FF = Fake Friends

✓ FF = Fool Friends
Deceiving words were easily spoken
As this innocent ears eagerly receiving
Silent evil stung and hooked my mind
FOOLED! just when i turn around

Laughter heard and humiliations had seen
Anger and foul words will never be forgotten
Shame to myself yet I supposed to resist
How come this weakness begins to exist?

As this patient mind starts to sore
neither your peace offerings can’t even restore
Silent vengeance were plotted and planned
Reminded with those moments, where shall I stand?

Somehow jilting words cometh with my sweet goodbyes
Never these weakened eyes will have to cry
Cutting off of what had been started
Before things get worst and duly accumulated

Never shall I regret for a “No ONE”
Than a million with a trusted “NONE”
I’d rather be alone with a peaceful mind
Than being surrounded with ciphers and numb.

This could be a lesson, I should have learned
Not losing all the things with sweat, I’ve earned
Before get extorted, you have to know your friends
Before getting worst, give it an end.

Smiles that are fake were bestowed and shown
As the fool trusts and faith had entirely grown
Trapped in the net of make beliefs
Concluding late, that I was just deceived.

If it isn’t a crime to kill a man
I’d never had a doubt to head-point a gun
But patience whispered the word ignore
Nevertheless, pain severed- all through my core.

Pack of wolves hunts as one
Killing preys – divided to some
Never a chance they’ll fool their kind
Instead they treat everyone for a meaty dine.

But humans are merely unique
They’re acting strange – very different.
Instead of helping each other
They’re killing and fooling one another.

I don’t know if this would make the world better
Treating every other human as a total stranger
I hope, Pray and wish that somehow this would end
Before the backbones of my grandchildren starts to bend

Si Kinsa Ikaw Sa Akong Kinabuhi

Bulahan kadtong adlaw nga kita nagkaila,
Bisan sa binag-ong kahimanan kita nagkahiusa.
Ug didto nagsugod ang akong gugma.
Gugma nga putli, ug bugtong kanimo lang gibati.

Himaya ang mga adlaw sa atong paghinigala-ay,

Bulahan kadtong adlaw nga kita nagkaila,
Bisan sa binag-ong kahimanan kita nagkahiusa.
Ug didto nagsugod ang akong gugma.
Gugma nga putli, ug bugtong kanimo lang gibati.

Kalagot sa makalagot

Aduna koy sugilanon para kaninyo mga higala
usa kani ka babaye nga relihiyoso ug edukada
pero naay mga butang nga ako makuratan
sa ka anindot ug ka kulbahinam sa iyang batasan

laliman ka ba’g butang-butangan kag storya
aron lang naa siyay rason para kanimo magminaldita
ang uban, storyang nangaraan na,cge’g pangukay,
para naay rason nga mangaway

infairness lang niya, matinabangon kanunay,
pero pagbantay-bantay ug paghinay-hinay,
kay inig ka ugma kwentahon ang tanan,
ug ikaw mag nga-nga kay ikaw giboyboyan.

Wa ko kahibaw kung unsay iyang modos
dili man unta in-ani ang gitudlo sa Diyos,
pero pasayloa lang ko sa akong ka ignorante,
kay wa na jud ko kasabot sa iyang pagka arogante

Wa ko masayod kung kani matagaan pag solusyon,
kay ang iyang sorry, niabot nag usa ka milyon
balik balik na lang kanunay ang sitwasyon,
dili na lang kabalo mokat-on sa unsay leksyon.

Kabantay mo ni-anang ang imong kalagot a-hagiton?
nyag patolan nimo, ikaw ang mahimong dautan intawn?
in-ana ba jud ning mga tawo sa kalibutan?
pangitaag sayop ang tawong nagbinu-otan?

Kung unsa man gani ang rason ug hinungdan
kana, dili ko gayud cguro masayran.
kay off ang telepono ug dili matawagan,
cguro dili siya gusto nga masakto ang sayop niyang pagtoo
ug sa kagobot mao gayud ang iyang paborito.

-para sa kanhi kong trato nga karon burikat na. S.V.A

Ang Maskara

sayo sa buntag ako gipaningot ug naglagot
sa tawong dili ko kasabot ug makapungot
kay wa ko magdahom sa iyang pagkabakakon,
salig kay dili masirohan, ako gisayon-sayon

ang kagubot luyo sa iyang kasadya
ang kagool luyo sa iyang pagmaya
sama sa kahugaw sa iyang kinaiya
nga gihulipan sa maanyag niyang maskara

sa tanan siya ang gikagustuhan
sa iyang ka anyag makalingi jud ang tanan
pero dunay butang nga wala ninyo mahibaw-an
mao kani ang pagkatipaka-aron ingnon sa kanahan

para nila siya matinud-anon ug buotan,
pero para nako, susmaryusip pastilan
dili ko na lang diri ipangsaysay ang tanan
basta kay nakasaksi ko sa kamatooran.

Kung kamo suod niyang higala,
igsoon, ig-agaw o kapamilya,
susiha ug pagatun-i ninyo kaning bayhana
kay murag dili na siya mabangbang ug nigrabe na.

Sa iyang kaalam, hmm nibilib ko
pero sa iyang ka maru, ako na dehado
mga butang nga dili ta makatoong mabuhat niya
pero wow, amazing! para niya pwerte rang sayona

Ako, Usa ka lemonsito

Aduna akoy kaaslum nga wala sa uban
Mao nga gipangita ako sa kadaghanan
Gikan sa punuan ila akong gipupo
Gikab-ot ug daw akong liog gilunggo

Kahuman gibutang sa sako ug gilumsan
Gitugsaw sa tubig kay kono hugasan
Apan diay gibaligya sa mga katawhan

Pag abot sa balay ug human mapalit
Gihiwa ako sa kutsilyong mahait
Gipuga ako ug ang akong duga gipasidlit
Ay kalisod sa kinabuhing mapait.

Human ko nila mapug-i ug mapahimusli

Ako usa ka lemonsito

Ay kalisod sa kinabuhing mapait.

Human ko nila mapug-i ug mapahimusli
Gipasagdan na lamang ako kay kono wala nay silbi
Wala man lang kuhaa ang akong mga liso para paturokon
Aron sa sunod sila na sad ang mananom.

Kasakit sa paagi sa pagpanamastamas
Daw ako usa ka inutil nga dili man gyud makaikyas
Human makuha ang gustong duga
Gibalibag na lang ug karon nalata.

Gipupo giputos ug gihiwa
Gipislit giipit ug gipuga
Gilabay gipasagdan ug wala nay bili
Abi kay human na ko nila mapahimusli

 

Sa Adlaw nga Natawhan

Ang pagtimbaya isaysay,
sa nawonglibro ipakatay.
ang pahiyom ipauraray
sa ibabaw sa akong lantay

hingpit kong ipaambit
sa dili pa ko manamilit
ang adlaw mong natawhan
dili gayud diay mahikalimtan

malaumon, madasigon,
ug imo unta akong pasayloon
kung sa gasa ako mapalta
kay tungod walay kwarta

sa kinatok ipaagi
ang gamay kong mensahe
manghinaot ko nga alegre
sa pagsaulog sa imong birthday.

happy birthday

 

Setting up Virtual Hosts for Apache in Debian 7 Wheezy

In this tutorial I’ll be setting up a virtual host for rastaval.com you can change that domain for your own.

Apache’s Virtual Hosts
The term Virtual Host refers to the practice of running more than one web site (such as company1.rastaval.com and company2.rastaval.com) on a single machine. Virtual hosts can be “IP-based”, meaning that you have a different IP address for every web site, or “name-based”, meaning that you have multiple names running on each IP address. The fact that they are running on the same physical server is not apparent to the end user.

Set Up
In order for you to follow the whole tutorial, you must have a root access or a sudoer account to the server.

Assuming you have a fresh installed machine that has no apache2 installed on it. To do so, use the following command:

sudo apt-get install apache2

1. Creating the Directory
Create the directory where our webfiles will reside. This working directory will be our “Document Root” for the Apache Virtual Configuration. In creating a directory with your ssh command we have to add -p option so it would automatically create including the parents of the new directory.

Note: Please make sure that the DNS of the domain or its IP address is pointing and to the server where you are setting up the Virtual Host. (rastaval.com’s ip address is already pointing to the server where i wish the site to be hosted.)

sudo mkdir -p /var/www/rastaval.com/www_data

Note: If you want to use an unapproved domain name to test the process, you may refer to my XAMPP-APACHE virtual host configuration.

2. Grant apache the ownership to the Document Root.

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/rastaval.com/www_data

Next, make the directory readable to everyone/public.

sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www

chmod with option -R means you are granting READ permission to files and directories recursively

3. Create your test page with a valid starting filename.

index.html is commonly used as a starting page, you should put this file inside your “Document Root” directory.

sudo nano /var/www/rastaval.com/www_data/index.html

Here is a basic HTML code for your starting page.

<html>
<head>
<title>www.rastaval.com</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>It should Work!</h1>
</body>
</html>

Save & Exit.

4. Create a new Virtual Host File

You may duplicate or copy the default V-Host file and change its filename for your domain.

sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/default /etc/apache2/sites-available/rastaval.com

5. Enable Virtual Hosts

Edit the newly created V-Host file.

sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/rastaval.com

It will be the Virtual Host of our domain.

To begin, insert a line for the ServerName and ServerAlias under the ServerAdmin line.

ServerName rastaval.com
ServerAlias www.rastaval.com

The ServerName specifies the domain name that the virtual host uses.
Setting up the ServerAlias would make our site accessible with or without www.
It should now looks like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@rastaval.com
ServerName rastaval.com
ServerAlias www.rastaval.com
[…]

The next step is to specify the path of the directory where rastaval.com will get its web data. Misconfigured path of your “Document Root” will never let the Apache Server Pull up the webfiles.
The correct path of our defined “Document Root” looks like this:

DocumentRoot /var/www/rastaval.com/www_data

Save and Exit.
Finally we are now ready to activate our Virtual Host with the following command:

sudo a2ensite rastaval.com

6. Restart our Web Server
Modification of the configuration will only take effect after Apache is completely restarted.

sudo service apache2 restart

Defining our domain name to our server’s HOSTS file is no longer necessary since the IP of our domain resolves to our server’s IP.

7. Checking our work.
Access our domain, rastaval.com from a different computer. To double check, you may also type into the browser it’s ip. (Example: http://192.186.184.158/)

The previously-made index.html should be parsed or be accessed in either way.

You should see this in our browser:

It should Work!!

We can host multiple sites, with multiple domains on a server with single IP address. All we have to do is to segregate every domain to its corresponding “Document Root” and simply repeat this procedure above.

Cheers!
