Look And See What I Can See - Poem by Obed dela Cruz

Look at there and see how dark this world is!
Obviously, there’s an absence of real peace.
Anytime, war may attack brutally
If rulers will do things carelessly.
But whatever happens, my eyes can still see hope.

Look! O Look! War exists between brothers.
Hear the children say, “Where are our fathers? ”
The present generation out loud cries
For what they see is not anymore nice!
But I know that there’s still hope and soon it shall come.

Look! Peace and truth will soon rise and rule us.
The promised goodness, it shall come to pass.
Use your strength’s fullest to overcome all.
In life, never ever let yourself fall.
Hope is coming, so wait. Hope is near… very near.

Please, to what I said do not disagree.
My dear friend, look and see what I can see!
