Life - Poem by Philip Emmanuel Penaflor
Life is not about diplomas or high positions or high paying jobs;
It's not about popularity or influence or oblivion;
It's not about how rich or poor one is;
It's not about the ambitions and desires left unfulfilled
nor the promises made and broken.
Life is about how one has been able to understand herself,
of her own being human with all its grandeur and frailty,
of her own brokenness or of the richness of her spirit, and
that behind all success or failure is the constant yearning
to throb with humanity.
No matter how insignificant one may feel about oneself,
each one is definitely an heir to the universe
and to all its future magnificence or destruction.
We are not born apart from the others.
We share the same humanity.
We share the same destiny.
