A New Year’s Drive


The beginning of this year marks 'My Driving',
Be in full control to steer the wheel
Today I’ll keep my field of vision straight
Focus more on which path to take

All geared up with my re-energize engines ready
Lessons from past is my key to ignition
As Enthusiasm heats, I’m in for combustion
For this year, yes to intuition no more superstition

Yesteryears took me to crossroads,
Detour taken had placed me in deceleration
No matter what adverse condition this coming voyage be
Still I’ll be taking chances, continue what I’ve started

Fueled by ton tanks of courage,
Seeing the world anew in a positively rearview,
Overtake on everyone’s frustrating shadow
Leaving manipulating critics on the back view

Stronger than I was before
Still keeping my humble feet on the floor
Today I’ll start to patiently rein the road
Having myself in full control

To relive a life I had dream
And continue the driving
Keeping faith on God’s trail sign guiding
Soon you’ll see my Lamborghini parking

Dawn Mass

Photo Credits: Google images- www.clubbnb.com

As dawn painted the sky pitch dark,
Nine days prior Christmas, they mark
Wake up before the sun is high
Pitch dark, the dawn colored the sky

When cock crows cock-a-doodle-doo
Though feel sleepy in morning dew
Tic-tac, 3 a.m., the clock draws
Cock-a-doodle-doo, when cock crows

Everyone is getting ready
Heading to the church so early
Though breeze blew cold and makes bone chills
Getting ready, everyone is

Young may time be, streets are busy
Smell of rice cakes makes you hungry
Outside the cathedral you’ll see
Streets are busy, young may time be

Attend mass, keep spirit alive
People of different walks of life
To hear gospel they never pass
Keep spirit alive, attend mass

A little sacrifice, they say
O’ grant our wishes, God we pray
Complete nine rites, receive good prize
They say: “a little sacrifice”

This tradition never weakens
Hope to believers it brightens
For Christ this faithful devotion
Never weakens, this tradition
