Inspired Are The Words - Poem by Obed dela Cruz
These are the days when I went beyond my innocence
And found out not all oceans are like the Pacific
But the sun still rises to reveal a day’s essence
For as its rays touch the bones, it gives strength to the weak.
These are the times when sweet is the tender loving care
A child would feel as he rests inside his mother’s womb,
However, within his veins flow the blood that would dare
Like a hero that would fight though he may face his tomb.
I see skies of blue and rainbows above hills of green,
I taste fresh water instead of the tears of Heaven,
Ah, yes! A better paradise is yet unforeseen
By those who have tasted the banned fruit of the Garden!
In the lands undiscovered and waters unexplored
Found I this inspiration given by the Divine!
My very eyes beheld the heavens with angels’ horde,
Rocks and waves dance as my amazement and joys combine.
Inspired are the words as I again begin to scribe
In the scroll the letters that mortals cannot describe!
