    Sean Carney, I see that you are a troll, but nevertheless allow me to enlighten you: FILIPINOS ARE NOT BLACK. They are Asians, and to compare Balagtas' works to rap songs is insulting and an utter show of ignorance and lack of appreciation for poetry

Best Poem of Francisco Balagtas

To Celia

If I recall and read again
those days in love’s long-faded script,
would there be not a mark or trace
but Celia’s, imprinted on my breast?

The Celia whom I’ve always
feared might forget our love,
who took me down these hapless depths,
the only reason for this turn of fate.

Again would I neglect to read ...
