END TIME SIGNS, MORAL DEGENERATION


END TIME SIGNS- MORAL DEGENERATION

Many people around the globe are wondering if the end of the world is near. I don’t think there has ever been such a widespread interest in this topic like there is today. The signs of the end are prevalent. War, famine, natural disasters, incredible and rapid increase in knowledge. Poisoning of the air and water. Birds of the air and the Fish of the seas dying in huge numbers. These are just a few of the Biblical signs.
.
The signs are so strong now and the evidence is so clear that any person willing to accept the truth can see that the end of the world, as we know it, is near.
.
The Bible warns of the signs of moral degeneration in our society that will lead us to the end.

MGA TAUHAN (sa dula ng buhay)


Ito ay isa sa mahigit na apatnapung tulang Filipino na naisulat ko noong ako ay binata pa. Ang mga ito ay wala na sana ngayon kung hindi dahil sa pagmamalasakit ng naging kasintahan ko. Nang umalis kasi ako sa dati kong tinirahan (Cabugnason Residence, km 12 Sasa, D.C.), iniwan ko na lang ang mga ito dahil makakagawa pa naman ako ng bago. Nang una siyang dumalaw sa bago kong tirahan (Ponce St., D.C.), ang tanong kaagad niya sa akin ay kung dinala ko ba ang mga ito. Sabi ko, wala. Kinabukasan nagbalik siya at daladala na ang mga ito. (kapitbahay lang nila ang Cabugnason Residence)

Nobyembre ng taong 2003 (undas) nang naikwento ko ang tungkol sa mga ito sa naging grade 5 teacher ko sa baranggay na kinalakhan ko (Bongabong, Pantukan, Comval). Babasahin ko, aniya. Ipi-print ko pa Ma’am. Nobyembre (undas pa rin) na ng taong 2006 nang maibigay ko sa kanya ang mga kopya ng mga ito. Pagdaan ng isang buwan muli akong nagbalik sa Bongabong para sa kapistahan (Disyembre 8). Nang nakita niya ako, maluha-luha siyang napayapos sa akin at ang sabi, “Hindi ko akalaing…”. Totoong ako’y umiinom.

Si Ma’am? Siya si Herminia Baptista Arcenas, biyuda ng dati naming Barangay Captain, Grafo Arcenas (SLN). Ang naging kasintahan ko? Siya si Nelly Decena, misis ko at ina ng lima kong anak.

I Came From A Distant Place


I Came From A Distant Place

                        I Came From A Distant Place

I came from a distant place
But that place was not for me
Even though its skies were blue
Away from there I had to go

The people there, I love them all
But the people there made me small
That’s why I became so mad
But right now for being so I’m sad

When I was young in that distant place
There were no storms, just soft breeze
There my ship began to sail
With hopes someday I’d never fail

In that place as I grow
Hard strong winds furiously blew
It’s really sad to think
That my ship – it has to sink

I knew it was so unkind
To leave my sunken ship behind
But for me it was a crossroad
Leading to my life or to my load

This new place is not like that place
You greet me here with an embrace
Tho’ my life was as dark as night
Can go through it ’cause you give me light

From this place I’ve clearly seen
The stormy sea where I have been
Thanks to you for what you give
A strong new ship for me to live

That distant place had been a part of me
And the people there I long to see
I’ll pray someday they’ll greet me warm
Forevermore, they’ll do me no harm

A Bird’s Day’s Flight


A Bird’s Day’s Flight

                        A Bird’s Day’s Flight

I woke up to the cold breaking morn
Another exhausting day was just born
A day meant for countless little things
But I didn’t ponder, I just spread my wings

To look for a foamy nest far away I tried
I did not take the folk’s words as guide
I left my nest and followed my way
It is not of velvet, I hate to stay

A bright colored flower I’ve seen on my way
And upon it’s soft petals I did lay
Truly there was comfort at its best
The comfort I never felt on my nest

Then my flower’s beauty began to fade
Because it was in the sun not in a shade
When the sun has sipped all the dew
The comfort was gone, away I had to go

Within my heart I felt little pain
But I knew I had to try again
To the highest cloud I hurriedly flew
So high that only me dared to

I reached the shapely cloud of silver
And tried so hard to find a nest there
But the trees – oh! no one can be found
There was emptiness, no one was around

Finally I find comfort not on the flower I love
Nor on the silvery clouds high above
But it is just here on my forsaken nest
As the day closes at the time of my rest

                                                 doroastig
                                                 july 1, ’75
