Best Poem of MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

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...

Twilight Memories

TWILIGHT MEMORIES
by: MELVIN D. BANGGOLLAY
Tabuk, Kalinga, Philippines


The night was silent with its great slumber
While calmly touching every depth of my body
Making me shiver every toil my hands uncover
As I wrote down the memories of my journey.
