A while ago during our Study Period this morning (since Don Bosco Center of Studies declared that no class for today), as I watched upon the raindrops falling up the trees, I thought of composing a poem that speaks about what’s going on my mind and heart. I never used to write a poem as my way of expressing my thoughts and feelings. So, it’s my first time to share this poem that I made while my eyes are contemplating the rain that keeps on pouring while my lips is enjoying sipping a cup of pure tea from Sri Lanka.
When will be the morning will fill the sky?
When will the light overcome the night?
My eyes is in tears gazing the eternal bliss
Pleading that I may overcome this Dis-ease
As I step towards a long-wide journey
I found happiness along the way
Suddenly, my heart broke into silence
Questioned the unconceivable void within
Is it real? Is it real?
But, why I am still suffering the grief and pain within?
I never thought that I will feel this again
I never thought that I will feel empty again
For the past decades of dedication and devotion
Now, it’s being challenged by providential desolation
Why now? Why not yesterday?
Confusing, yet a blessing; a wise-blessing indeed
Is this a trick? I don’t know
A malaise? Perhaps
But, why it is something good and pleasing
eventhough my heart throbs apprehensively?
Love? Oh yes it’s Love
Sudden, Cordial, and Uncanny
But why? Why Love?
When I found happiness along the way
Which is which?
Both are good, valuable, and exemplary
Confusing, Puzzling, Bewildering
Only a wise heart could define which is for me
What did the Beholder place inside my soul?
Now, I ask this question as I indulge myself in a wise confusion
As I move on with a puzzling heart
I am assured of this;
Someday, the Sun will rise up,
upon the cold-dark sky.
