last night, with a lonely, broken heart and with no electricity, i tried in vain to sleep; the unforgiving typhoon blowing over the roof and outside my window did not help… time passed by like forever and i thought to myself what could be a worse feeling than this. then i thought of the brothers and sisters out there in the perilous streets with barely anything to keep them warm. with nothing in their stomachs, void of the comfort of a sturdy shelter… some of them, alone, deprived of the reassuring presence of a friend or companion. how could a human being live this way and find the strength to do it all over again. isn’t it all too much to take even for one stormy night. and there i was, frustrated about not getting my sleep. boy, my burden is light.
