+ Philippines

This poem is dedicated to all the Filipinos all over the world


You are the pearl of the orient
paradise with a distinguish beauty
Your daughter gaily- they sing and dance
Your son valiantly- they plant the seed of love

Oh Philippines, my beloved Philippines
old days slowly no more
Your children to distant land they wonder and sigh
Leaving you unwanted- oh my mother land
Some stayed but dream of the west saying
'lash green and rich'
Others survive but looking to the east saying
'milk and honey is everywhere'
While few starts the day hoping for prosperity
as their sweat watered the land
Oh Philippines once your breast is full of milk
Like as nurturing mother
Were tame and wild seek refuge and find rest
Were our fate leads us to become one and united
To the orient seas- the different faces of Philippines
My beloved Philippines

My classmate

Day after day I stared at you
With your angelic face magnify my eyes
Started to dream if I could make friend with you
To be acquainted and communion face to face

Even the thoughts flew so high but what if no
Our gesture normal as it is yet in veil
As if you keep your distance I don’t have the cue
But still you haunted me and I’m loosing my will

Night after night I made my plan
For the right time I know soon will come
But devil took it away using his magic wand
A spell that I don’t know what next to come

Nothing left for me time flew as easy it should be
Finally I have to decide less you’ll gone
And left me behind wondering if you can see
The difficulty of this feeling of being lonely

I am crazy I know if I will let you go
For what reason that you are here next to me
Sharing different stories but I still don’t know you
Until you go my heart still on you zzeee like a bee

So hard to speak if you’re around I am loosing my head
My heart skip a beat like a stone so hard yet so soft
But I know this will end up so soon I know it will
Our roads will part but thanks we’ve met my dear classmate

+ God is dead

God is dead

Upon the hill
holy mountain of God the most high
My spirit was called to hear
the voice from the wilderness.
The answer to bring fourth and to glorify the Christ
whose death brought life to those who died.
I press the earth
and feel the roughness under my feet
For the sandals now cannot be wore
rape by its own poverty: the un-belief and the ill-fate
became the master all over the street
while the authority of man is enslave
chained their own novelty.
I let go of the dust- shake my bones
to cast off the spirit that clings to my weary soul:
for the stuff is growing old and weak
for the cup is getting empty and dry
no hope and no love for those who made the vow.
Their religion is a ghost from the unholy past
and the son of man is doubled crossed in the altars
for the savior remains a dead man.
Oh God my God hear my voice-
your servant from the troubled seas
drifting from loneliness- dying from emptiness.
Save my people,
hail the angels like Israel in the past.

The “God is dead” talks about the man’s failure to live what he believes and professes.

The title was adopted from Freidrich Nietzsche’s classic “Thus Spoke Zarathusra”; “God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves…(refer to the whole text) .

Youth's nightmare

Sweet surrender on the river side
In the morning to the shadow of moon dust
Near and far misses the Dog Star
That used to collect the youth here and there
A Frog Horn blown wild and cold
For you to remember the river side

Up come a coaster fast yet silent in the night
No money in the jacket and in the jeans’
To give for any ticket for a ride to hide
See them now on the railway remember all was
They walk into the darkness cast from the light
Time no longer a glance indeed a chance of joy
Think too many yeas was in
that scene from the river side

Melancholy a fear of yesteryears
Remember the offer that I would say
But sure not that man I used to be
Since knew you quite different as the river flow
Let’s go down deep to the promises
Bah, alas all they left the empty seat
As soon go feeling was in the river side
