Preamble of a Filipino


I am a True Filipino
Of one Spirit, one Blood
Of one Nation, one Hope
Of one God, one Future.

I am a True Filipino
Sworn to defend the Rights
Of my Country,
Protect the Common Good and
Preserve our Democracy.

I am a True Filipino
Greatly influenced by the Foreign Class
But never on my Being
I shall obtain.

I am a True Filipino
Promoting the Welfare of our Country's Needs
And though my Spirit may be taken away,
My Heart for this Nation will always stay...

Forever.
