Bronze Star - 2,230 Points (June 23,1979 / Lapaz, Iloilo City)


God the almighty father and the ultimate creator
Created the good which gave way to evil and wickedness
The eternal struggle which is almost becoming relentless
It's almost impossible to humanize evil without thinking of the crimes
All the killings, murders, theft and so forth all throughout the times
But to understand good and evil is to read the mind of the father
To embrace evil as the pair of the good to us and all living matter
But not to do evil but rather anticipate its every movement and direction
To learn from it as humans while we shield ourselves of the protection
All the robbery, murder and theft would never fail to be heard and be seen
The instincts of these criminals are just complicated if you know what I mean
I've hang out with robbers, addicts, thieves and even killers
And found out that they're not that different from the rest
They too have feelings and emotions beating from their chest
But instead of working hard for achieving their goal
They took a different path risking everything as a whole
For these individuals belong to the dark or evil side
They are the waves that pushes us as they turn the tide
They too are a part of the vast and intricate network of system correlation
A product of the good which strives to better itself since the time of creation
For God always had two sides as evil and good in its nature
I justify this claim since he allows evil to stay in the picture
Evil is born out of the suffering and pain of the people
The explanation behind it is almost that easy and simple
If God created us in his very own likeness and image
So why do you rob, steal, kill and do some damage
Yes smoking and drinking are bad to the health of a person
But why did he grow the grapes and tobacco if he had no reason
Why did he allow bombs and guns to be made by a man
When all they ever did is to kill as much as they can
Even the lust or desire is never wrong
For we were all born out of lust all along
Why did God allow nature to be so violent and deadly
Killing men, women, children and even an entire family
Each one was created uniquely and perfectly in its own way
Even criminals too for they were all given the time to pay
That's why a pencil has an eraser at the opposite end
So we could correct our mistakes and try to mend
Evil is the product of our insecurities and desire
So we must avoid evil in chasing what we aspire
For when God decides to rob you of your wealth
Or to make you suffer from illness of physical health
There's nothing much we could do when such things happen
We could only turn to the good or right with arms wide open
For God doesn't discriminate of its unsuspecting victim
It could already be him getting back at you within the system
There are only two colors in the game of chess
The black or white, nothing more and nothing less
God watches over you as you fool your clients of their pension
Victimizing the senior citizens so you could buy a mansion
But one day you got robbed and shot by some addicts
Although they were apprehended and are now convicts
Sad to say you are now paralyzed from the waist down
You could no longer buy a mansion in your own town
The fate of those addicts in prison will never be known
But Karma had played brilliantly with what was shown
For the Temple of God is the human body
He dwells in each one of us and everybody
Our God the Almighty created everything that the eyes could see
Even the things we hate like drugs and alcohol abused by the free
Our God will always be above the Law and Justice
Just look at the things happening and what we practice
Our God is present in every aspect of our life and action
He guides us to our destined path regardless of the direction
For he made the equilibrium out of the system of our existence
For a life that has no changes and struggles have no importance
Life is a game that will have winners and losers in every match
The battle between the Hero and Villain that he enjoys to watch
Falling to the dark or evil side is never a permanent stage
Something good could be written about you in the very last page
For even an honest or decent person could do a crime before he dies
To be totally hated in the end with what he has done and all the lies
Remember that a hundred good deeds could be forgotten with one mistake
For we all have our own battles and struggles to fight for our own sake
Evil and Good works in an contrasting manner respectively
Two binding force which creates the balance consequently
God would never forsake his people to the very last drop of leniency
For even though God is vicious he could also show some mercy

    I've hang out with robbers, addicts, thieves and even killers
    They too have feelings and emotions beating from their chest
    For the Temple of God is the human body
    He dwells in each one of us and everybody
