COMES THE DAWN

















(photo was taken in Balamban Cebu)

After a while you learn the subtle difference
between holding a hand and obtaining a soul
and you learn love doesn’t mean leaning
and company doesn’t mean security

and you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
and presents aren’t promises
and you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes open
with the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child
and you learn to build all your roads on today
because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight

After a while,
You learn that even sunshine burns, if you get too much.

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure
And that you really are strong
And you really do have worth

And you learn and learn

With every goodbye you learn….

William Buenafe ayon kay ...

The picture perfectly fit the deep emotion of the writer.

How sad to hear so much frustration a person can get
from life thats surrounds them.

I just hope that despite all this disappointment, they will still
find it in their own self to enjoy
whats left of it.

I love the picture, its so dynamic
and really dramatic.

Secret Samadhi ayon kay ...
