Big Picture - Poem by Obed dela Cruz

Deep down inside us
We are looking for
Something bigger than
What we are today.

We try many things
We walk many roads
And we wonder if
We’re on the right way.

But what if we’re not
Looking far enough,
Or what if we are
Not in the right place?

There is a reason
Why we are alive
But are we running
Life in the right pace?

What is our vision?
What is our life for?
What’s the big picture
That we vow to do?

Let’s wait too long
Before we try to
Find out what this is
So let’s journey through

Inside our being
Where who we are rests.
Let’s unlock the door
And let life come in.

We’ll see it better
We’ll understand it
We will embrace it
And then we will win.

It’s something bigger
Than who we are now
But it’s really there
Waiting to be known.
