From Ryan C. Dayrit
Sucat, Muntinlupa. Philippines.
Don’t you ever wonder
what clouds are made for?
Why are they around?
Even they themselves couldn’t tell.
These angels seem to float around
and bump into each other only by chance
on where the wind would blow them to.
Some just pass through
while some generate a powerful, unexplainable energy
once they meet a certain type.
There are times when they just stumble in the darkness
and carry a heavy load that they can’t help but cry.
But to them it’s normal.
It’s just a thing that they have to go through
in able to show the world that light, though we see it everyday,
is such a wonderful thing.
Don’t you see what clouds are meant to be?
It’s a simple representation of life for you and me.
