“Reflection with Juvenal Sansó” – Makati, 17 May 2017

staring
through the
years
the decades
at my
generation:
impertinent
impetuous
impatient
from where
you sit
in the
distant past
with your
patience
and your
tolerance
and your
tenacity.

there are
none
like you
in these
slapdash
slipshod
throwaway days
though some
dare
and some
dream
to break
the mould
as you
did.

and i
wonder
who among
us
is brave
is strong
is wise
enough
to follow
in your
footsteps
or are
there none,
alas,
at all.
