Marvin Brato Sr

(March 2,1960 / Davao City, Philippines)

The Forgiven


Sin is tempting

is a spiritual blunder

for human beings



Sins are alluring

induce instinct indulgence

for a typical society



Yet, if one humbles

and repent, pray

forgiveness is free

for Christ already paid

the price on the cross

for all sins in the Calvary

Poem of the Day

In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
