Best Poem of Edwin Alba Empestan

(aaa) Sojourner

Walking through the lives we tread
Mostly unknown where the final destination
Amidst the complexities of an abyss materialism
Perflexed and chagrined by the question

What lies below the Hades where souls abound
Will they continue to rot forever and be helpless
Once arrogantly displayed invulnerability
Fearless, daring and unabashed careless fool

Where shameless world and rotten fools abound

Yes sojourner and vulnerable ...
