Wait! The list of things, in life do we brave
The hours – long, odd and surely, grave
The palpitations, for the appointments made
One’s indecisions – while by the acacia’s shade.
The worries of yesteryears, looming so big
A cup of forgetfulness – deign give us a swig
The heels of our shoes, dig the soil quite deep
Begging time, daring one’s heart – oh, to forgive.
The future that asks us – plan, before falling to sleep
The sorrows buried and today’s demands, exigent
The rivers and open seas tell us – to swim and to wade
The question of triumph and yes, the part of self to keep.
Oh, come now – admit here, for a moment
At times we stopped, by the forlorn bend…
To see the mountain grass below – to ponder on and gaze
To inhale the sweet scent of air, the misty morning breeze. 😉
You’re such a talent, Ate.
ahaha, salamat, Ren… hey, holy week dito… paalis kami, kapatid. naalala ko si Christ nyong nakasabit sa driver’s mirror- hanging for his dear life, hihi. 😉 thanks, cheers! 🙂
Another excellent poem. We do have to brave a lot in life, but that’s what makes us strong isn’t it? And then there is all the fun in life too. But that’s a different story…
Thanks, sir Otto. yes, i guess so… I hope to write poems about the fun, too, one day… 🙂 hope things are going well for you. warm regards. ^_^
