Papag

Hawak ang kanyang itak sa ibabaw ng papag,
masisilayan mo ang mga matang walang bagabag.
Kahit ilang dekada ng 'di makatayo,
at walang kakayahang lumakad at lumayo.
Mistulang walang poot at ligalig sa kanyang dibdib.

Naninirahan kasama ang mga niyog sa isang liblib.
Iniwan man ng karamihan, 'di pa rin natinag sa gitna ng dilim.
'Di dinalaw ng takot at pangamba sa pag-iisa,
kahit lumubog ang araw at ang ulap maging makulimlim.
Patuloy na nagtiwala kabutihan ay darating.

Tulungan mo akong maging katulad niya,
O kay sarap mabuhay na puno ng pasasalamat
walang galit at poot sa gitna ng pighati,
walang halong inggit kahit nasa laylayan at nahuhuli,
at walang anumang hinaing at daing sa kagipitan.

Sinusulit bawat paghinga.

What’s better than God’s best?

It's okay not to fill the gaps. It's okay not to be enough. It's okay to have blank spaces in our to-do lists and journals. It's okay not to be okay at times. It's okay to wait and to do nothing. It's okay to rest and to pause.
