Rookie - 74 Points (11/07/1975 / Natonin, Mountain Province, Philippines)


Melvin Banggollay

Our world witnessed a love so divine
from a begotten Son so noble and kind
Whose birth ransomed us from our sins
to open the gate of heaven to all skins.

His breath and life is for all mankind
He offered to share without decline
To save us from deaths and sins
Through His blood shed to all his kins.

Let the spirit of His love to all men
Be shared with justice to all brethren
and be sung with the joy of forgiving,
and sharing gift of peace and tidings.

Stop the war of apathy and antagonism
Stop all the killings and stupid terrorism
But never stop caring lives with smile
Even you'll sweat pains more than mile.

Let thy hands be manger of prudent care
Touching a life to behold a destiny so fair
Even sometimes we need to declare
war against ourselves for others welfare.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
