Why Should I Dream? - Poem by bonifacio alba

Why do I strive so hard...
When the road ahead
Is so rough and bumpy?

I should have stayed
And relax at my twilight
Rather than chasing time
Of no definite outcome?

Faith, vision... What else...
Are they just fragments
Of my wild imagination
To realize those dreams?

Not all answers are given
A must to face soon...
The unexpected realities
That can never be imagined.

The realities not a part
Of the dreams molded,
It is a fog that restricts
The vision to pursue...

Perseverance may shield
Never to quit at the height
Of all the test of endurance
Before the light is seen...

Uncertainties is a call...
To fallback the quest for life.
But since then we know not
What the future will lead us.

Maybe just spend the time,
With a definite purpose
To serve and share the gifts
Of blessings and God's calling.
