i AM A FILIPINO (a free verse poem)
i AM A FILIPINO
i am a Filipino heir of a CURSED land;
A land once home of GREAT MINDS and NOBLES;
Now a soil lair of MEEK and POWER-THIRST people!
i am a Filipino successor of a government;
A government founded by PURE-HEARTED souls;
Now a government manhandled by BUWITRES;
i am a Filipino great grandchild of strong-willed ABUELAS;
Abuelas who were not vendors of PRIDE and DIGNITY;
And child of PUTO SIKO-HEARTED and BUBBLEHEADED seed-bearers….
i am a Filipino weaver of an UNCERTAIN FUTURE;
A Future once visible in the HORIZON;
i am a Filipino…i am a Filipino…still…
