Bronze Star - 2,073 Points (June 23,1979 / Lapaz, Iloilo City)


Our very own lives and our very own existence are in a balanced or harmonious condition
For out of the evil that is happening right now something good will come as a part of creation
The constant rise and fall between the forces of evil or good creates an enigma
Among the many structures and dimensions of life as we find solutions to such dilemma
For both evil and good are the structural foundation of the creation of life as we know
For in every evil that took a shape or form great men would be able to perform and grow
For only in the presence of evil that the good will grow and show courage or strength
To overcome the test of evil and wickedness by means of determination at any length
Have we not learned from history and the events from the past
Without slavery Abraham Lincoln would never had his fame and glory
And if Lincoln was not assassinated Adolf Hitler wont even have his own story
Without the Marcos's the Aquino family wont even be famous and leaders
This is the message of how our world works that I'm trying to tell readers
If you are suffering because your leader is incompetent then who's to blame
When you allow yourselves to be bought during elections so what a shame
All the deaths that evil brings to men had brought renewal and change
Of our beliefs and understanding that was once alienated or estrange
For our very own enemy is our brother and sister who lost their sense of righteousness
And as the result of their own ignorance they have turned to the evil and wickedness
But how do you enforce rationality to a person who's been influenced by terror
To be able to carry out such carnage and death to many in such horror
For terrorism is waging war against your enemy on a smaller scale
Your idea is to kill as much as you can in any manner or execution
Hitting all your targets with any types of weapons at any location
For evil was also born out of men's freewill of his own perception
But out of this freewill God created the Law as some sort of limitation
Everyone is almost capable of evil or wickedness and these are considered to be facts
Most criminals rob or steal while priests and nuns beg if you look at their acts
For evil is buried deep inside the consciousness that could also be awaken
For no one is innocent and free from all that's evil as God had spoken
For its only the circumstances that drives men to commit a crime
But I'm only speaking of the poor who are now serving their time
The evil acts of mankind had led them in search for a God and Savior
Not knowing that it is also God responsible for all their behavior
