A Mountain Skyline - Poem by RIC BASTASA

from the town of Kolambugan
you face the old city of Ozamis

and from where i stand
i see a skyline of colors
sad colors

i see a line of mountains
as the sun departs

leaving this pain of those who died here
on one explosion
many, and many of them
did not know that they will die on that day

some were to cross the sea
to attend a wedding
some a baptism
of their first born

in a sudden, a large sound is heard
and flesh showered a splinter
in the skies
blood flowed on steel floors

some eyes remained closed
in disbelief
others shouted for revenge
they call for justice

and yet today
there is never one
