Today's Gonna Be a Good Day


Sun’s glorious morning rays through the window
Wake-up and feel the warmth of the new day
Get on your feet, in the past do not wallow
Hope in your heart; luck will come your way

Yesterday was cloudy with occasional storms
But definitely today is a good day to start
So have your breakfast and do not frown
Wear your best dress, work that lazy butt

Better have your hair cut if you must
Paste that gleaming smile on your face
You have what you need, just a bit of trust
Bring the beacon home with extra sauce

I remember well, my mama used to say
“Good fortune comes to those who seeks it”
Then my father would give a nod, always
And would add, “Son once found, hold onto it”

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
