The Old University Hall

Fr. Finster administered the Body of Christ
in the Davao City Jail
Perhaps he thought that humanity is still found
in the cell where whorled souls are kept
One day the disciple of the Devil
stabbed him
The murder was done
And no one was there to help him

He died with a note that he had forgiven
the Malefactor

The hall of this university is named after him
This is where i reflected on the meaning of humanity.
This is where I think of Doubt
That strips me of Faith
This is where i left and this is where i must come back
To redeem what was lost in me.

This empty hall
This hall where shadows lurk
Where there is no door that closes when one
Leaves for good
