Rookie - 460 Points (Philippines)

Kabayaran (w/english 'the Price')


Ilang bundok
ang kaya mong akyatin?

Ilang dagat
ang kaya mong languyin?

Ilang luha
ang kaya mong palayain?

Ilang halakhak
ang kaya mong iparinig? ...

Kaibigan, kahit minsan
mga pangyayari'y nakakabaliw
kailangan mong manatiling nakatayo
kailangan mong manatiling matatag
sapagkat yaan ang kabayaran
sa buhay mong tinanggap
mula sa nagbigay.



-the Price-

How many mountains
can you climb?

How many oceans
can you swim?

How much tears
can you release?

How many laughters
can you make people hear?

My friend, though sometimes
things are making you crazy
you have to remain standing
you have to remain strong
for it is the price
for the life you receive
from the one who gives.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
