I don’t mind if they call me “lola”
even if “lola” gives the perception of granny
old and gray
because I am their “lola”
truly and rightly, It is always fun
to be with these two wonderful kids
makes the world stop temporarily
no cares, no worries
just plain joy and innocence.

A Perfect Creation of God–a poem for Monica on her 25th birthday.

all i could utter when you came into the world
was “i love you, my daughter, my darling baby
let me be the first to gaze at your beauty”
what perfect creation of God I was awed

i was so happy at that moment i could die
a daughter made me whole after a son
nothing more to ask for, really there was none
what perfect creation of God on high

if i could, i would
sing at the top of my voice
dance to my heart’s delight
shout what’s in my heart

delight in what i have
wish for what i do not
pirouette, spin, flip, float
mingle, tickle, giggle

what difference does it make
when you are there and i am here
away, ever physically apart

i have always felt your existence
and you have sensed mine
even if our paths have never crossed

it’s like you have always been here
and i have always been there
but we are yet to breath the same air

the time will come
when new beginnings will start other endings
and all false hopes will finally be free
moving on will not be as hard as it seems
letting go will not cause pains that pierce
hearts will start to open
to love that might have been
no more questions left unanswered

There comes a time when thoughts run dry
And no matter what you do you don’t feel anything
Eyes wide open you stare in space, alive but lifeless
Nothing flows from within, it’s just a certain aridity.

No heart, no soul, no anger, no angst, you don’t care at all
Insensitive to pain, hurts, and all outside forces
No degree of nudging could bring you forth
Though detached from the universe, you’re not scared.

While the general trend through time is for the poor to become poorer
And the rich—they become richer and richer, I cannot help but wonder
Can someone come up with a sure fire solution to the widespread poverty
Afflicting millions the world over. What will it take to eradicate this reality?

International NGOs, development banks, churches, rich countries
Financing firms, charitable organizations, individuals, philanthropists
Have come to the rescue, through loans, technical assistance grants
And direct aid, still poverty is evident despite infusing these funds
