Don'T Cry - Poem by Oscar Dhonesquil Esquilona

There are so many times that you complain
And there are times that you feel that hope is gone.
You sit in weariness because you're in despair and pain
And crying aloud to the world that you want change!
You want change because you hate being degraded
For you see that life is like leaves that have faded.

Yet your voice is never heard
And you are sitting still, as if you were a living dead.
You stayed alone and there's nothing beside you
To assist and comfort your soul that is troubled.
You want change because you are in sorrow
For you see that the world has been totally destroyed.

But there can still be hope if you stand and walk
And call for the One who is the strength and hope.
You try to raise your teary eyes above
And witness the sun shining brightly in the sky.
Know that if you want change, don't just sit and cry
But raise your eyes to see hope...
If you want a change,
Then you have to do it first yourself!
Never despair...don't cry!
