Rage against the dying of the light

this was the title of Conrado de Quiros’ column today. it reminded me of The Jerk‘s moving and angst-filled pre-EDSA battlecry which is of the same title.

then, i stumbled upon the inspiration of it all, Dylan Thomaspoem and it hit me. it hit me hard. the piece’s words packed a kisser that unnerves the heart and mind into contemplation. I almost cried.

these were the words that really reverberated within me.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

now, i miss my dad.
