Bronze Star - 2,204 Points (June 23,1979 / Lapaz, Iloilo City)


Our own freedom had given us different selection and varieties
Even each person is different from the other in our identities
For in our very own existence we were all given different menus on the table
The freedom given to us guarantees liberty and equality which is unalienable
We are given the right to select our own husband or wife
The location of our home to live upon in our entire life
We were given the right to choose which movie to watch or see
The liberty to select our mode of travel either by land, air or sea
We were given the right to choose which vehicle to drive
We were given the right to select when to depart or arrive
We were also given the right to choose which school to learn
Freedom also gives us the opportunity to waste or to earn
Freedom guarantees almost every opportunity to choose or select
Although in some cases people make decisions without using their intellect
Some of us may have similarities in our character and even looks
But we never judge a person by its appearance or cover like books
As long as we have freedom we have the liberty to choose or select
That's why this is the ideology that we should nourish and protect
But did you know that its the same way about the cycle of life of a person
The ability to choose the color of your skin upon birth has no comparison
For in every soul being born comes a new name and face
Being able to choose your own religion, culture and race
For that's what we've being doing for thousand of years now
After all the deaths and destruction I've made this is my own vow
So in your next life you could either be a Christian, Muslim or Jewish
To select your own nationality as an American, Chinese or Polish
Never doubt the words I have written and what you've read
For I had come back to life again even after I was dead
