There is always a balance in life,
between the heavens and earth,
God and humans,
the sacred and profane.
Many times by such hit-and-miss borders,
designed through the seen and the unseen,
we cannot discover the source
of our happiness and misfortunes,
our joy and sorrows.
Always unable to manage life’s seasons,
we enjoy some halcyon ones blended
with others so disturbing.
There are tragedies on the ground floor,
made by incautious people, not prevented
by incautious guardian angels,
being healed by the Almighty, many times
by our own human brothers, some of them
the most unthinkable ones.
We follow fighting everyday vicissitudes,
joining hands with all of our friends,
the visible and the hidden ones,
any of them we must ever dismiss.
