Cold Dish

When life hands you a cold dish,
Warm it with the heat of your passion.
May it be muesli or a piece of fish,
Let it become the fuel of your mission.
For what can one do when hard times come?
But to tread each inch and stick it out,
Or, sink and leave it all to none?
Either be a citizen or a useless lout,
There is no gray area, no fence, only a test.
For life rains on the sodden and beat
As much as it shines on the very best.
So when life gives you something to eat,
Don’t bite of more than you can chew,
Be cooler than the soup gone cold,
And most of all, be grateful for the stew
It’s full of mercy, I was told.

    LIKE. (Thumbs up here)

    Haha~ Except I disagree with gray areas and fences. If there are no gray areas or no fences, eh di ang dali ng buhay because you will either be right or wrong, or you will either win or lose. Which isn’t always the case. Haha~ Waxing philosophical na naman. Wala lang. 🙂

    Hehehe, thanks. That’s very philosophical. Very chicken and egg, so let’s just agree to disagree. I have my poetic license after all. Hehehe.

      For the record, I wasn’t saying you’re notion was wrong kaya weird to me yung ‘poetic license’ line mo. I was simply stating that I didn’t agree with it. Haha~

      And, btw, apparently some European scientist has already solved the chicken and egg mystery so hindi mo na pwedeng gamitin na line yon! Haha~ Panira ng trip yung scientist na yon, ano? :))
