i AM A FILIPINO (a free verse poem)


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…
