In this Jungle of Life…

“Life is a continuous struggle… it can be PARADISE… but be ready because most of the time… IT IS A JUNGLE”

I stood, I observed…

I saw the bad side of life…

The jungle that it is…

Survival of the fittest…

Reign of the strongest…

I saw how man ate man…

Clawing each other to dominate…

 

In this aspect of seeking fair and just treatment,

Justice and equal opportunities…

Some men become primitive creatures of the earth …

Being helpless and dumb, they become targets and victims….

Some become the highest form of ” WILD BEASTS”

Rushing through, showing off their teeth….

 

I saw how people think like “ANIMALS”…

…or were they really thinking?

 

I saw a lot of  “SAVAGES”, each to his own…

 

I was so afraid, I want to flee

I was looking around for a DOVE,

There was none, not even a single one,

I was looking around for the “King”

But the “King” was busy wandering…

Maybe he doesn’t also care a thing…

 

As I further trek deep into this jungle of life…

My attention was caught by three creatures…

The Crab, the Pig, and the Crocodile…

 

The Crab was just there, moving sideways,

Seldom moving forward…

Whenever another is ahead,

The one behind tries to pull the other one back…

The crab reaches his destination,

But only after wasting a lot of time,

Struggling to be ahead in line…

 

The Pig was snorting around…

Enjoying his puddle of dirt…

Covering his body with the shiny mud…

Eating greedily whatever is in front…

Leaving his waste just anywhere…

Dozing off, after a hearty meal…

Tsk tsk tsk…fat he is, he doesn’t care…

 

The Crocodile, a predator that he is…

Other animals won’t dare come near…

Slowly moving forward, steadily eyeing a prey…

A vicious ambush hunter, he swiftly attacks…

A cold-blooded killer, he bites and crushes…

As I observe… his behavior is at the worst…

When he decides to also eat his own kind…

 

I had to gather my courage…

Fight when needed…

But you see, I am also a prey…

I need to run and flee…

Not to quit… but to stall a bit…

Just for me to know their moves…

Observe what part is weak…

Then that is, when I make my hit!

  1. Manul-nulat ng Bayan

    yes…life does have its idle moments…and that’s if we are in what you say jungle….however it can become meaningful if we choose to have a journey with confidence, faith in God and perseverance…

    • I agree G. Manul…

      “Journey with confidence, faith in God and perseverance…”

      This is the good side of us… the side that says…”Let it be…”

      But sometimes, if you will be in the middle of the wild, surrounded by beasts, ready to tear you apart, when survival means taking care of yourself… together with confidence, faith and perseverance… we should be strong against each blow… we should know how to defend what is right…the battle may require us to step up…and step up we must…so just we can survive against the infestations in our will, against the destruction of our being…

      Ito po lamang ang aking opinyon…. ^_^

      • I was actually talking about an instance when you will see the crab, the pig and the crocodile convene together…^_^

        You are trying see if there is hope (DOVE) to uplift your spirit and if there would be a king (just and wise person) who may intervene.

  2. napakaganda at napakalinaw ng paglalarawan. tunay na maituturing na pakikibaka sa isang kagubatan ang isang parte ng ating buhay. mapalad tayo at ito’y ating naranasan, pagkat alam na natin itong iwasan. hmmm, napakaganda. ipagpatuloy lang ang pagharap sa mga hamon ng buhay.

    • Minsan, kailangan nating humiyaw pag naapakan na,
      Kailangan nating umaray pag nahihiwa na,
      Mga tinik sa gubat, kailangang iwasan,
      Ngunit kailangang hawiin, alisin ng tuluyan,
      Sapagkat ang mga ito ay kalawang sa ating lipunan,
      Akala mo kung sinong magbigay ng mga panuntunan,
      Mabuti sana kung sila ay matamang nagmamasid, taimtim na nakikinig,
      Ang problema, mas marami ang mapagpanggap…
      Mga hunyangong walang pakialam sa pagod at hirap ng iba,
      Mga lulong sa kapangyarihang kung umasta at magsalita,
      Tila di din sila empleyado, pag-aari ang lipunan, tingin sa sarili…

      Nakakalungkot… nakakalungkot…

      Mahal ko pa naman ang Pilipinas…

      Sana kung gaano ko siya kamahal, yakapin din ako ng bayan ko, pati na ang mga itinalagang “MANGALAGA” dito….

  3. ang buhay sa mundong ito ay nakukubabawan ng anyong pumapaimbulog sa pagtatagisan, at pingkian ng kakayahan, kasanayan at kasangkapang makamundo…

    habang ang isang nilalalang ay lumalangoy sa agos ng mundong ito… patuloy na mamayani ang walang hangang pagtutungalian at pagdadalamhati sa pagkabigong masumpungan ang hangaring sa umpisa pa lamang ay bulag na sa dalisay na kaligayahan.

    subalit sa dako pa roon, nananahan ang panibagong pag-asa, hatid ay kakaibang kinang ng panibagong anyo ng bukas.

    sa mundong yaon, ay naghihintay lamang sa mga nilalang na handang masumpungan ang bulong ng makabuluhang pagnanasa upang matuklasan at magampanan ang iniatas na dakilang layunin.

    sa bawat pagtupad ng kanya kanyang layunin, mapapawing lubos ang mga agam-agam, mababalangkas at ma iayon sa ritmo ang kawing kawing na hangarin ng bawat isa at ganap na mabubuklod upang sabay sabay na tahakin ang landas ang pangako…

    ang landas patungo sa pagsibol ng panibagong kamalayan….

    naghihintay lamang sa atin kapatid🙂

    • pagtagisan, pingkian, pagtutunggali, pagdadalamhati, dalisay, makabuluhang pagnanasa, iayon sa ritmo ng ang kawing-kawing na hangarin, pagsibol ng panibagong kamalayan….

      napakalalim na panulat,

      nakakapag – isip, nakaka-kamot ng ulo,

      nakakamulagat ng mata, nakakabagsak ng panga…

      ngunit ako ay sumasang-ayon sa lahat ng tinuran…

      kung ating gagamitin ang ating mga kasanayan at kakayahan na sama sama, at sa kapaki pakinabang na pamamaraan…

      tunay ngang ang landas tungo sa pagsibol ng bagong kamalayan ay mabibigyan ng kalinawan…

      sa mundo na ang katotohanan ay di miminsang nagiging pangarap lamang,

      at ang pangarap lamang ay di rin miminsang nagiging katotohanan…

      Marami man ang kaibigan, sa lalao’t madali… armas pa rin ay sariling karanasan at kakayahang pinaglinang…
