Best Poem of Noel Horlanda

Battle Of Mactan 1521

Before the break of dawn each side prepared battle plans
in a bright bonfires burnt til’ sunrise,
Strategy drawn on sand not on a piece of paper,
indigenous warriors rallied about the Datu,
loin cloths and colorful headbands as armor,
long blades, bamboo spears, wooden clubs
common weapons of their generation
dependent on brav’ry an’ muscle power
ready to die n’ defense of their island bastion,
pledges nev’r on bended knees, bowed their heads
before strange monarchs and gods.
Battle of Mactan about to begin

Galleon ridin’ bearded enemy, well ...

Gone Forever

Black is her color
brave and valor
mixed breed that she is
my constant companion
loyal walking partner

White spot on her breast
mark of a beast
wild as her dad
