Poems: KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE and POSITIVE ADVERSITY(misfortune)


KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE

A long time ago,
On our way to the village stream
And to the mission house
On a visit to the village catechist
We use to share our dreams
And enact our visions
Of our future hopes and aspiration

We dream of being worthy scions
Of illustrious parent
Who will keep aloft the family honor
And live a worthy heritage
For succeeding generations

We have come a long way
From those early days
Under the moonlight trees
On our way to the market square
And to the village stream

We must keep the dream alive
Our focus must remain clear
Our resolve unshaken
Our spirit unbroken
Our enthusiasm not dampened

The ember of our dream
Must be kept aglow
We must keep the dream alive.


 POSITIVE ADVERSITY(misfortune)
 
When you are down and out
And think there is no way
Out of the web of circumstance
Your maker, the merciful God,
Will provide a way.

Adversity has it uses
If you choose to drink from it fortain of wisdom.
It makes you humble and reflective
You begin to appreciate
That God is it who creates the wise
That also molds the fool.

Let us marvel at the wonder of nature,
There is cold,heat and dry hammatan wind,
In the fullness of time,
Everyone of these has it own use.


When you are poor,
There is no sweetness in life
A satisfied life,
a fulfilled life,
Calls forth a prayer on longevity
