Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

There can be
no savoring the foods
offered by Terra
without working hard for their generation;

no consumption of bounties
in torrential showers
without striving
for their production;

no recital of flowery
words about justice
without active contention
for their fruition;

no pleasant rest
of mind and body
without processing by
the sweatshops of labour;

no blissful state
of realized utopias
without rendering sufferings
from waylaid obstacles.

[Writ. 27 Sept, 1987, University of the Philippines, QC.]
