Dare to Question: The Answer is still a question

This maybe informal, but I just want to express my thoughts with this picture posted by the Supreme Student Council of Mindanao University of Science and Technology.

The BIG question as SSC says, what’s your Problem?

As one of the student leaders here in MUST this tag line of SSC is a bit of insult. They even tried to ask what is /are the problem(s) of the students, where in, they are the root of all the problem. If they are not, even a pace of solution they cannot make. One good example is the very late unreleased identification card of the students. As the head of the entire population of the student in MUST they must raise the voices of the students to the admin of the University or to the person who is in-charge. But, they do not do it their actions are passive. They are like “maya” bird they can see but they are deaf.

One of their ten-point agenda as they clad it to their selves is the WELFARE OF THE STUDENTS. Now, where is it? Are they just good in words and left it behind without any action? If they would rebut, we are still a student we cannot make it as soon as possible. Then, why you ran? Why you took the position? Have you perceived the consequences? Or you are just dreaming. It is good to have dreams in life as your ideals. But, a dream without foundation is like a suicide. Your killing yourself slowly by slowly ‘cause you set a high expectation and even one result you cannot see it ‘cause you fail to do it.

“Dare to move.” Are they moving? Obviously they are not. They are sitting in their air-conditioned office and still dreaming. Whenever you ask them of something, their answers are not accurate. One of the unit org President asked about the scholarship of the officers. They replied, ah… taysa ha... wala pa man gud namu nabuhtan ug formal paper. One of the officers asked about the possible listing of the activities of University intramural. They replied, ha… grabe sayuha pa io. What they would like to tell us? Are they planning accurately? Or still they are playing on their dreams.

SSC ironically is not capable of their thoughts and actions. It seems they are unripe leaders in layman's term “na ahat ug hinog.” Why is it? Can SSC answer all of the questions stated above?Hello SSC --- are we talking to the moon? We are asking questions to solve some problem, yet, the answer is still a question.

Stranger’s Smile

Your smile is like dazzling stars
 It seems you put me in heaven with your deceitful smile
 With lips as red as blooming roses
 You sweep me away with just a wink of your eye.

Yes! you are a stranger
 Yet your smile seems like a dagger
 With your rosy lips
 And a dimples on your cheeks

You alter my gloomy day
 Into a blissful day.
 Every night and then,

  I'm on my window pain
 Sighing upon the starry night,
              all I can see is your magnificent smile
 As I lay into my bed,
            with a pillow in my head
 Whenever I think of your smile,
            it vanish all my dreads in life.

 Oh! A wistful stranger smile
 You ease my sorrow and my heart knows no woe
 Yes! Your smile averts my sadness
 And you have flee me from gladness.

(Pa root lang! :) )
