Poverty

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

it’s not money
 for you can’t buy everything
it’s not food
 for you will hunger again
it’s not love
 for once more you can gain it
it’s not shelter
 for surely you’ll find one
it’s not knowledge
 that vanishes with time
it’s not fame
 for people will soon forget
it’s not power
 for into dust we shall return

Poverty is the absence of God
 in our lives.

 
my special thanks to FTA DELA  CRUZ for this poem.

  1. eli, i love how you puzzle the colorful image to poverty. most of the time, poverty is visualized in tones of white, black, sepia and gray. kakaib to. lab the poem as well.🙂

  2. tin, o2 tama ka. kadalasan madilim…di ko rin alam, basta nung ginagawa ko ito, gusto ko masaya ang kulay. para iba naman, parang pinoy, masaya kahit sadlak sa kahirapan. hehe

  3. wow… it’s cool to bump into a pure-blooded visual artist here🙂 i browsed you archives and my golly i was blown away… i’m curious kung anong medium ang ginamit mo? brilliant! i love the poetry too🙂 i’ll add you on my roll🙂 keep posting …

  4. hi ron, tnx for the add and visit. abt my medium…am using water color, oil, pen and ink and some (of my entries) are digital graphics (using coreldraw, xara xtreme & photoshop)

  5. …like this one i used corel (very effective ito pagdating sa vector graphics). minsan gumagamit rin ako ng illustrator.

    ayan nagpromote na ako..hehe

  6. wow… in-add mo din ako! thanks alot!🙂 frustrated artist ako lalo na nung hs. ang galing mo naman! crypas lang medyo alam ko. nahirapan ako sa watercolor. oil???. hindi ako matiyaga at madalas akong nawawalan ng ballpen kaya pen and ink was a no no. hehe! dun sa mga nabanggit mo photoshop lang alam ko… hirap ako gumawa ng artwork using that. mas gamay ko ang mS paint! hahaha! what do you mean by vector graphics?

    thanks for dropping by🙂 wow talaga! gosh… ibig sabihin there’s a possibility na magkatotoo ang panaginip ko! hahaha! napakaromantic naman ng love story niyo. she is the girl both of your dreams and your reality🙂

    really cool🙂

    bloody cool!🙂

  7. ron, ganun ba…hindi pa huli ang lahat..pwede pa naman. vector graphics? 2 kase ang type ng graphics (1) vector – geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon(s), which are all based upon mathematical equations, to represent images in computer graphics.
    and (2) bitmap or raster–made of pixels. para masmaunawaan mo hanapin mo nalang ang kasagutan sa google search..hahaha baka magkamali pa ako eh..

    tungkol sa panaginip, ano ba yong gusto mong magkatotoo? ibulong mo nalang sa akin. hehe ..tnx
