Life, Its Quests - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

By: Melvin D. Banggollay

L-ife is God’s most wonderful gift
For mankind to love and cherish;
A legacy everyone must not tarnish
To be worthy of this sacred gift.

I n every flame of success we seek
Forget not to honor and proudly speak
The Glory of God in our ardent quest
For by him, we could behold success.

F-ear not for trial that comes bellowing
With fearful thunder that tempest brings
For living is not an abode of joyful tidings
But embroidered with uncertain things.

E-xpect no grace if you’re just there sitting
Somewhere counting the stars wandering
For to behold success one must be willing
To sail in the sea of life bravely sacrificing.
