A Heart Of A Child


Wish we have;
Hands of a child that touches with care
Not with terror;
That will not make others’ eyes cry with anguish
Not with violence;
That will quench others' heart with pain
A stream of flooded tears, drowning everyone's dream.

Wish we have;
Eyes of a child that looks innocent, without envy
A mirror of love and chastity
A mirror of oneness and true humanity,
A mirror of brotherhood
A mirror of God’s love.

Wish we all have;
A heart that of a child, that beats with all honesty,
Without hatred, without envy
Where love dwells, forgiveness flow,
Only God's commandment, we will follow.

Open our ears to;
A country that shouts for unity and brotherhood
Open our hearts to;
A country that knocks for our love,
Listen to its silent voices that plead for peace
Peace we can offer to our children, and our children's children
That, they may feel not the diversity, but, unity.

Let our voices of love echo in our land;
We are brothers...
We are brothers...


in memory of all the victims of such barbaric act... the Maguindanao massacre
May they Rest in Peace

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
