Treasure Island

Marvin Brato Sr

(March 2,1960 / Davao City, Philippines)

'Life... A Lottery'


Do you gamble
when you bet
even your life?

Life is too short
must not waste it
on worthless things!

Love your own self
or at least respect it
give it care and love.

You are priceless
as God created you
in His own likeness.

Life is given free
for us all to savor
its greatness it offers.

Having life to enjoy
is already a lottery won
being alive is utmost joy!

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf

Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
