by Dine Racoma
lost in his own little world
not knowing how to face life
how to find its meaning and purpose
yet he keeps on seeking
what does he really want?
i heard his unhappy questions
“where have all the magic gone?
what happened with my joy in life?
how can i recapture the thrill of being alive?”
television, theater, basketball
have suddenly become a bore
now he feels insecure, unhappy, discontented
all signs of man’s malaise in a society
where its ever soulless materialism prevails.
