Why Should You Be Happy Today?*

by Gil Camporazo

Unwanted news all over the country
and in the world
Flooded every communication.
But the good news only few
know about it.

Problems of any kind
haunt every family, every community
And solutions are just
lurking somewhere waiting to be found.

Woes and worries
abounding everyone --
Good to bad, worse to worst
Unresolved yet still!

Therefore, you and I
and everybody know not well!
These dilemma be it personal
or communal
Are for refiner's fire --

Somewhere out there!
Stretching forth His open arms,
Willing to aid, to help
And lead you out from social quagmire.

Be thankful for He's there.
Be grateful for His love.
Be happy for you're heavenly,
spiritually taken care of...

(And your loving family is with you all the way)...

And besides --

It's your BIRTHDAY!

*(dedicated to one of my teachers in Cubay Elementary School, Mrs. Ofelia N. Ayungon, who is celebrating her 47th birthday, 27 February 2012)
