Ang Mabuhay in this World

By Apolinario Villalobos

 

Ang mundo is not really full of roses

Not every moment is with happiness

Makulimlim din minsan ang paligid

Nagbabadya ng lungkot nitong bahid.

 

Maganda na sana noong unang time

When paradise was there yet…sublime

But, mahina si Adan, bumigay kay Eve –

Pinalayas tuloy, napatira sa mga yungib!

 

“Maghirap upang mabuhay” was the sumpa

Nakatatak sa dugo, one painful na pamana

Kasalanang tinubos naman by  Christ Jesus

When on Mt. Calvary, he died on the cross!

 

As we live in this slowly dying world, tiis lang

Not only humans suffer, marami ding nilalang

Nandiyan also ang mga trees, fishes, at hayop

Lahat tayong mga nilalang, hirap, nagdarahop.

 

Walang magandang gawin but to say, “salamat”-

Salitang ulit-ulitin mang ilang beses ay ‘di sapat

Hintayin lang our last moment sa planetang ito

And, where we’ll go, depends sa ating pagkatao!
