Mindanao: The Land Of The Free - Poem by Antonio Liao

even the star blinks to see the island with
a doming dust blew from the pacific
ocean, and the whiten cumulus clouds
showered the scatter archipelagoes
of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao

white beaches floored the virgin
inlets of cliff, driven along the sea coast
with the white Celica and golden pebbles
rust along the dunes of sand in a
formation of kaleidoscopic design by
its natural nature poise

home of the its largest forest, birth place of
the famous monkey eating eagle, hibernation
lair of the world venomous snake of the
world, inhabitant of great ethno linguistic
people of the past and the land of promise
of the mai of the pre-historic period

never conquer in the past, struggle in the
present and the winner of the future, the
archipelago that emerges the backdoor of
history of the Philippine republic, the
source of the spirit of freedom enthusiast
amongst Filipino of today's quest

as the nature comes to convey, the dwelling
place of harmony, its flower grow and the
the birds fly in a zooming speed to know the
blowing wind in the island of Mindanao

come and live the ambiance of the birth of the
people who live the dignity of its destiny, the
faith that hold on, the hope that build to pursue
and the aspiration to live for a wonderful
Mindanao as a Nation
