Toronto Peak Hours


Author’s Note: Eto na ang huli kong naisulat as struggling immigrant. Nagkataon din naman na a few weeks after ng poem na eto eh nakahanap din ako ng trabaho. On a not-related note, pag nababasa ko talaga English writings ko, narerealize ko na mas maganda talaga yung mga writings ko in Filipino.

People pass by in a hurry
Work day ahead – there’s no time to worry
Day will be spent busily
After all, it’s Toronto’s weekday officially

People are walking and rushing
But at Tim Horton’s, they are stopping
Coffee to start the day right
Some bagels too to make the day bright

Crowded buses, trains and subways
People are preoccupied, no time for a getaway
Seem to be ready for all meetings for the day
Toronto’s peak hours is starting anyway

I see these people from afar
I’m just an observer in the dark
I want to be part of the crowd
Soon, definitely I’ll be joining this crowd
