Jess Robredo


…to die a hero





By Apolinario B. Villalobos





1


At a young age -


Showed the world


He’s that strong;


Used to the fullest


What God gave him


As the stairs of knowledge


He took one rung at a time-


Carefully, not to miss the steps…





2


Strong leader as a student -


Many tried to emulate his ways


Some did try but failed


To be Jess is not that easy


His friends proudly said


Simple ways he had


But hard to be copied


A really rare breed, that lad…





3


His intellectual thirst was such


That even three educational degrees


Seemed not enough to accomplish;


Took a wife, equally strong


And like him is intelligent;


The two built a
home


With a foundation of love


And pillars of determination…





4


Alas! Not long afterwards


The couple thanked the Lord


For the three beautiful girls He gave;


Their joy was such that they did their best


To mold the three into the same ways


Into which they grew –


Respect for others, and love, too


Respect for time, and money, too…











5


At the helm of Naga City, at twenty –nine


Jess showed that when called to serve others


Age is just a number, and skill matters;


Unfazed by responsibilities, he did his best


By just being him -


As he checked busted city street lights every night


As he scraped mud from streets after the floods


As he helped garbage collectors fill their trucks


A he patted the back of those who sought his counsel


As he handed coins to the destitute he met


As he smiled his way through days of problems


As he wore the same office uniform just like others


As he took the bus to Manila and tricycle to functions


And many more Jess ways…


Hence, the Magsaysay Award at so young an age!





6


Though unfortunate to see high brows


This was when chosen by P-Noy to head DILG


Many, as usual tried to block his way


But just as when he was in Naga,


He was unfazed, and just worked his best;


No meetings and official ceremonies


Stopped Jess from skipping at least one meal –


One meal with his family, his precious family


Not even that distant meeting in Cebu one day


That was the fateful 18th of August 2012


When he took a Cessna flight for home


But as nearing Masbate, was distressed…





7


For three days, people cried and hoped


That he was just carried by waves to nearby islets


Or that a fisherman took him home to recuperate;


Alarmed but praying to the Lord


People patiently waited ….


Until, finally on the 21st of August 2012


Jess has been brought to shore...





8


A hero?...more than a hero I say!


Politicians who gave him a hard time


In getting the more than deserved confirmation


Are now cringing in guilt… suddenly silent


Alibis are said, but no amount of such


Could make a cover up for their misdeed;


They refused to see what Jess had been doing


For us, his countrymen who for long


The dirty air of politics we were breathing;


Politicians whose schedules are filled with
investigations


That did not give much result, but limelight grabbing


They who played “intelligent”, “hero of the people”


Are so eerily silent……………………………


Yes… so silent………….!





9


To be a hero is to die with a purpose


It is only at death


That others accept what he did for others


It is a sacrifice for the man and his loved ones


But what can he do?


It is God’s will and plan –


The only way to make others acknowledge him


The only way to open their eyes to see him


And open their mind to finally make them think


That, indeed, he is unselfish, hardworking, etc…





10


To die a hero
should not be seen as late in coming


God has a way as to when this should happen


His acts are done at the right time


And we, His creatures, His instruments


Can just wait, most often caught unprepared


But Jess was not –


For even as a child, his ways


Led to his being that –


A hero, and he died for it....


Though for others, hard to accept.
