The Family's First Television

Mama plugs the cord into the wooden wall,
The bare outlet thrumming with manmade life.
With a rousing growl, the box awakens.
Mama steps out from behind the little stand to sit with the family.

All nine of the family are gathered around, watching as shrouded
Figures emerge from black and white mist.
The family cranes in, as Mama turns a dial upon
The face of the box.

The image clears, and sound pours from the tinny speakers.
A gray face has entered the room,
Entered the house.
He begins talking about far-off things happening in far-off
Places that the family have never heard of.

The family is enthralled
In the soft electric glow
Of this wondrous creation.

The youngest touches the screen
Perhaps not understanding that the man
Is actually far away
The distance swept
By the tides of technology.

FILIPINO OFWs

Filipinos abroad working for their family
While sharing in the growth of the country
Are often called the “makabagong bayani”
With their immense help in the economy.

Even to my own and ever dearest family
You’re family is indeed our own bayani
For the kindness you’ve shared unselfishly
Helped us a lot in the needs of our family.

Life here in our very own land and destiny
Is becoming harder and harder everyday
With the crisis besetting our economy
And poor peace and order in the country.

I do wish that we’ll have the opportunity
To follow you in your foreign destiny
Through our siblings who want someday
To find a greener pasture in other country.

People like you whose God is in their family
And so faithful in the call of the Almighty
To share their love for the poor and needy
Radiate prudent act of greatness and nobility.

Everyday we fervently pray to the Almighty
For your good health, fortune and safety
As we harbor to treasure your great sympathy
And kindness which you gave unselfishly.

Our Family Tree

We class ourselves as branches
on our family tree,
each person has a branch
and each branch has its branches
growing out of it.
Let’s go back to the beginning,
who would be the base
of our family tree.

In being logical,
we take the first names
in our written history
and those first two names
have to be Adam and Eve.
Now if they are the base
from which all families grow.
That makes everyone
on earth one big family,
and that makes everyone we talk to
part of our big family tree.

blindness

I had a family once
I had sisters
I still have a mother
But it no longer feels like my family

I feel my tears stream down my eyes
I feel the lump in my throat as I try
To hold back the tears but they keep coming
I had a family once
I had sisters
I still have a mother
But it no longer feels like my family

I feel my tears stream down my eyes
I feel the lump in my throat as I try
To hold back the tears but they keep coming
We are falling into a dark whole

We are screaming for each other
But we no longer see are selves let alone our kin
We are drifting apart slowly but steadily
Our anger is all we see

I wish........
I wish that they could hear each other
I wish that I didn’t hear them
Their screams their pain I hear it all
I see it all why am I not blind to it

I wish I really wish that I had my family back
 
a light in the dark
