Becalm the Day's Troubles
Allow the peaceful waves to reflect
the cooling rays of the sun;
the sprays will rub
our companioned shoulders.
A calm posture is noble.
Our evanescent silence is indigo.
And those who were insensate, who did not listen
will be deafened by soundlessness;
the brilliance of the rays that rose into a shout
will flower, will rise tomorrow.
(translated from Filipino)
(Axel Pinpin, Verses from Behind the Bars
