Treasure Island

Mary Louise Mann Gabumpa

(february 8,1975 / cebu city, philippines)

Comforted By Grace


The dawning peace
Slowly rise up
At the scrupulous
Misery darkness of one.

Setting still in a holy hill
Of Him whose grace
Comes from-but grace
That is to one and all.

Yes, a comforting grace
That shines like a-
Dawning light-a
That brightens even a silhouette.

Though it leaves a mark
But only to see
How one gotten through
Beyond limits and... amaze.

Proverbs 24: 11 says, 'for though a righteous man falls seven times,
he rises again, but the wicked are brought down by calamity.'

Taking the liberty
To the fullest-the liberty-
The Truth that we hold on to
But never abusing it.

Living a life in-
Fear of God is living in
Reverence before Him
And not peddling reasons.

When reasons in life
Bring odds-liberty is tested
But Truth speaks within
And Grace takes over... and comforts.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
