(aaa) A Changing World - Poem by Edwin Alba Empestan

After that long sojourn from the land of milk and honey
A decade and a year so long endure to bear...such emptiness
Alas! I've found myself anew into the Land of Many Heroes
Abundant rain meet me at the landing entrance gateway

The smell so familiar and somehow gave me the nausea feeling
The market like noise greeted me and cause me an irate mood
Local guards pretending to maintain orders but appears like beggars
While some tired travelers mostly women on queue pretending big time

Station to station offers each a lot of disturbance and disappointments
No wonder this gateway is one of the worsts in the world to bear
Intense humidity, cause a waterfall of sweats flowing my whole body
Screeching sounds of cabs and the wild crowd of welcomers merged

No where to go and confused at last someone came to the rescue
My savior, my sweet lass, my life, my hope now I found you again
Unmindful, can't help myself but to give you my kisses and hugs
There amidst the confusion and chaos begs a question? ? ?

A changing world? Yes certainly is...and I will take and live with it
Traveling to our destination rain and humidity gets more intense
Accepting the presence and make peace with it is the best fit
After all this will be the start of my new life and 'changing world'
