In Memory Of Former President Corazon Aquino

FIGHT AND NEVER STOP TO STRUGGLE
To be nobody but yourself- in a world that is doing it’s best to make you everybody else- means to go on and fight the hardest bettle that any human can fight, and never stop fighting – E.E.CUMMINGS

In Memory Of A True Public Servant

A Loving and Devoted Mother

A Faithful Wife
An Icon of Democracy
A Symbol of Faith, Courage, Integrity and Love
                                  
                              A Fun-loving Grandmother
                         
                           A True and Honest Citizen
                                    
                                The First Ever Woman President
“It will take a lifetime for the  nation to be okey without you”
The Filipino People Lost A Genuine Treasure
You and Your Husaband Will Forever Be Remembered Worldwide
Farewell
A Simple Tribute From A Simple Person Who Admired Your Courage and Generosity
I Am So Proud Of You
You Made Filipinos Be Proud Of Their Heritage
Thank You and Goodbye
May You Rest In Peace
Yellow for Cory

Yellow for Cory

For the woman I so admired Former Philippine President Cory Aquino- May you rest in peace!

You’re the futile humble tree

I am the travelling bird of innocence
I came from nowhere
Tired of aviation, I rested upon your mighty branches of understanding
In order to restore myself with the strenght I’ve exhausted
From my previous attempt to reach the sky
In your shelter
I can soar high and make my flights worthwhile
But before I took my flights again,
Allow me to pick a leaf from you that will serve as memoir
That  though I can no longer see you when I already reach the sky
Yet the mirage of the futile humble tree will haunt my thought
That for sometime, somewhere, we’ve touched each other.
 
This poem was given to me by my brother when we were in University and I had kept the poem for a decade now in an old envelope and suddenly remembered about it and decided to share it here.
