I see someone

Looking through the shadow
I see someone who could only be
Swaying fast, going slow,
As the sun dances
Exacting pleasure in every glow.

Night takes over
Across the lane where shadow was
The color of the night tangles with light
From blue to gray then black.
Without the sun, the moon, the stars to keep the light
The shadow wilts.
It blends with the night,
It must.

Day comes
As it has always been
On cue at certain time,
Glorious morning brings forth the light.
Swaying fast, going slow,
Across the lane where shadow lives,
I see someone who could only be

Ang Tangi Kong Pag-ibig

Hope you like the music. Have a great day ahead.


Noong nakaraang bakasyon ko, maraming bagay ang aking napansin katulad ng mga bagong billboards ng mga kapalmoks na mga pulitiko, mayors at kay pink dude Bayani Fernando. Pero isa sa mga kamangha-mangha sa akin (of course di na nakakamangha na makakapal talaga ang mga mukha ng mga pulitiko at opisyal ng gobyerno sa Pinas) ay ang mga malalaking PED XING signs sa street of the city of Manila.

Noong una akala ko, bagong pangalan ng street ito sa Manila at iniisip ko baka ito ay name of a Chinese historical figure or baka isang bagong “great or outstanding Manilenyo” with or from a Filipino-Chinese roots. At kung hindi ako nagkakamali, I guess I saw PED XING signs outside the Philippines before.

Sabi ko, this guy must be really great or probably one of the greatest peps on earth or perhaps a pet of one of the crazy but influential politicians — his or her name found a place in that long and busy stretch of manila street and in that part of the world that I’ve been to which I could not remember.

I was curious. One day, I told my daughter, “Don’t you think I also deserved  such kind of honor and that there must be a street named after me instead of that  PED XING? After all I am a recognized hero by the government of arroyo. The New Super Hero, so they say.”

What change they will see?

Here are some questions of Barrack Obama that we Pinoys of today must ask ourselves.

We have seen so much. But there is so much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves — if our children should live to see the next century; if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what change will they see? What progress will we have made?

I wish all Pinoys can answer Barrack Obama’s questions truthfully.

Well, it is not too late. We still have time to make our firm resolve to change ourselves and our nation starting today.

I hope we all can. I pray it will start now.
