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.]
