By Apolinario B Villalobos
Life is like a woven tapestry
Intertwining threads make the whole
The threads are values that make us up
So that the strength and beauty of the tapestry
Will show on how we live our life every day.
Waking up in the morning
Let us be glad, another day has come
The Lord must be fairly, profusely thanked
That again, we savor the warmth of the sun
Breath the air and enjoy life as best as we can.
The beauty of life we live
Will show on how we love and give
For us to say, we love the Lord is not enough
Still not, even in strings of prayers it is said
If our heart void of love – of stone it’s made!
A loosely woven tapestry is fragile
More so if threads are weak, thin and flimsy
A sorry sight, also it will be, drab or dreary
Just like life that’s lived without purpose
Drifting, whirling with the wind as it blows!
