This morning I went for a long run, in preparation for the half-marathon that I would be participating in. The event would be in 2 weeks.
My long runs have been getting longer, and sometimes it can be tedious and boring. Maybe I should play Pokemon Go while I run to make it more exciting, and capture those fleeting critters.
I did not capture a Pokemon, but I captured these photos while I was running:
Yes, it is harvest time in this part of the world I’m living in. The fields are golden brown, the days are getting shorter, and the wind is getting colder.
In this particular field, they were harvesting corn.
Why are they harvesting corn? Because they sow corn! Shouldn’t it be that way, we harvest what we sow?
Maybe some cynics out there may disagree with me, for I know we are living in a world where so much injustice abound. People seems to reap what they did not sow, or have been harvesting in fields that are not theirs.
In my home country, we even have a proverb for that: Ako ang nagtanim, ako ang nagbayo, ako ang nagsaing, pero iba ang kumain.
Loosely translated, it says, I was the one who planted, I pounded, and I cooked, but somebody else ate it.
Yet I still believe in justice.
Lady Justice may seems to be blindfolded (I don’t know why it is portrayed that way) to the unjustness and repression happening all around us. And I’m not blind to that. But I know it as a fact that in the end, justice will be served.
That day of reckoning will come to all of us, when we will harvest what we sow.
