MELVIN BANGGOLLAY Poems
I Am A Filipino
I AM A FILIPINO
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...
'Son, Eat Our Kitchen'
SON, EAT OUR KITCHEN'
BY: Melvin D. Banggollay
It has been a month already
Since my father gone away
To a kingdom and destiny
Where God's faithful will stay.
