I love poetry there is no doubt about it.



I was born in a poor family

but nurtured with humility,

Tendered and cared with simplicity

as an advocate of nature's ecology

and a soul searching God's beauty.

I Am A Filipino

I AM A FILIPINO
Melvin Banggollay


I am a Filipino, in blood and spirit
born from immortal seeds of heroes
Whose heart were willing to commit
their lives to fight any kind of foes
even those that has the power to spit
the nation of my birth with volcanoes
of fire and balls of cannon that can split
thy land unto tiny dusts to unseen echoes.

I am a Filipino, proud of my humble roots
of a gentle loving and valiant Malayan spirit
land been conquered but never surrendered
the culture of its birth and ancestor's merit
of great love for country...
