POV: New ME - a Personal Safari Experience

Been into a digital world hiatus for a couple of days and it feels so good. My company sent me into a two (2) day training entitled "Personal Safari - Recovering the Self" together with other members from different locales. We're the 4th batch out of 15. I'm very lucky to be part of a company which allocate training hours not only related to work areas but also with personal growth and development.

I will not share to you the journey I have been through but I just want to share to you the result of one of the activities we've done. The facilitator asked us to make a Tanaga. Tanaga is a type of Filipino poem, consisting of four lines with seven syllables each with the same rhyme at the end of each line --- that is to say a 7-7-7-7 Syllabic verse, with an AABB, AAAA, ABAB rhyme scheme. After creating a Tanaga regarding our whole experience, the facilitator asked us to grouped into eight (8) members each and share the poems among ourselves. After that, he instructed us to choose one (1) word from it and make a new Tanaga out of the words we encircled. After making the Tanaga, we're very surprised when the facilitator connect each Tanaga making a full blown three (3) stanza poem. I was really surprised, thrilled and in awe. Here's our "batch" poem.

Paglaya't Makakain, Tungo sa Bagong Sarili
PSRSW - Batch IV

Nangarap sa buhay ko
Nagtiwala sa puso
Minahal ang sarili
Humantong sa pagwagi

Pag-asa Mo ay gabay
Sarili ay tibayin
Mga aral sa buhay
Mga likha, manalangin

Nakinig siya kahapon
Damahin ang pag-asa
Tiwala sa paglaya
Namaulat sa'yo, Panginoon.

The journey we've experienced was beyond words to describe!
