Setting Aside For A Rainy Day - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

To prepare for the rain
Is important to every man;
Able to meet his needs,
Doing everything he can.

Look at the ants,
Storing up food in summer;
Not to be caught off guard,
Nor hungry during winter.

But more than ensuring
A life in contentment;
One should prepare for
The day of judgment.

Everything on earth
Shall be burned by rains of fire;
Even the arch of the sky
Shall be destroyed by God's ire.
Collect the bread of truth,
Deposit the Almighty's word;
Reserve food for the soul,
In one fold you'll be able to hoard.

Plan to be ready,
Now that the end is nearer;
It is of utmost value
To heed God's messenger.

A message of caution
From the bird of prey;
Hence, the famous phrase:
Setting aside for a rainy day.
