Perfect Future - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Stories shown in the movies
Have their own happy endings;
Either fiction or true-to-life,
The heroes win over the villains.

A hard working student
Is vying for some honors;
Taking up tests and quizzes,
He comes up with flying colors.

An athlete dreaming to win
Has been vindicated finally;
Though mission seems impossible,
The buzzer's sound signals victory.

Pleasing everybody is hard
For a leader or president;
Pressured by the opposition,
He makes a graceful exit.

One sweet love story
Has been shared by a writer;
Though lovers walk the fires,
They live happily ever after.

So if one wants a brighter tomorrow,
Begin to think of a better picture;
Then say and do what is holy,
For the good man there's a perfect future.
