Rookie (Oct.2 / Tondo, Manila, Philippines)

Rain


In my heart echoes the pain,
Hurt never heals in the rain,
Rain never quenches thirst, soul,
No balm for my numbed senses.

LIfe has a lot to offer,
Like the rain that pours wonders,
Life, like rain, fascinates me,
The downpour I have waited.

But rain is not enough now,
To wash the tears that flowed down,
Pain so deep that brought my tears,
Need peace I have not in sleep.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
