-- There are so many words to describe me, none of them is B.A.M.E. I've got a foreign name, exotic. Try to read it before you modify it.
How long have I lived in the UK because my English is so good, where did I learn it? My accent is American, it's confusing. or my accent is too Filipino, quite embarrassing. How can we come from so far and be so fluent-- so bizzarre.
My rice cooker is an enigma, more so the amount of rice I eat, huh? My spoon and fork don't make any sense to you But your table knife achieves nothing for me, too.
Why do we dye our perfect black hair? why do we want our skin to be fair-- why don't we just embrace our God-given tan? Your president seems like a smart man Fighting your country's drug war like no one else can Lastly, "are you a Manny Pacquiao fan?"
It's quite difficult to be a P.O.C. in a world that doesn't understand our P.O.V. Why we've immigrated and not always assimilated Why we've flown thousand of miles away from home Only to stick with our own but sometimes there is just some comfort in not having to explain the way we are or who we are and why we are the persons we are without having to feel subpar.
Sutla ang iyong kutis, Ilang inches na heels iPad ang hawak Ayan pa’t naka-Rayban Kahit taglamig – Ganyan dito sa abroad Pasyal dito pasyal doon Higit sa lahat Hindi barya ang sahod.
Padala sa Pinas, Lahat ay winaldas Dami pang pasakalye Datong din pala Palaman ng inyong mensahe.
Aba’t bida pala si bunso Sa tropa’t sa eskwela Hindi ba’t astig? Pang-party nila’y Siya ang laging taya!
Ang binata ko’y Malaki na talaga Kapapanganak lang daw Ng bespren nya Anak, tanong lang ba’t sa handa nila’y Ikaw ang itinoka?
Ang ilaw ng tahanan Na siyang aking iniirog Sabay sa uso Nakasisilaw ang alahas Inubos ata ang bawat perlas Buti’t nakaahon pa’t Ayan, kay kumpare pa Siya’y nakakapit! At ang nararapat Na panglamang-tiyan Kulang pa pala Kanyang sinapupunan May bagong buhay Mahal, saan siya nanggaling?
Puso ko’y nalurak Ako’y inahas na Pinagsamantalahan pa Akala nila’y ok lang Akala ko’y may babalikan pa Yung totoo, Lata’y hiyang-hiya na Humihikbi ito Makatikim lamang ng barya Wala na ang sahod, Awitin ko’y “Palimos.”
Oh, Lady I do understand. With all that I am, To love someone like me is wrong. Even if our heart's singing a song, A song called love and affection. It's condemned in your religion, And you are very religious person.
Just go away from me, I will set you free, And I hope and pray, That you'll find him and be happy.
If only reincarnation is true, I wish my soul will enter to a man's flesh. The day I die, I will find you. I will bring the love for you still fresh.
It won't go stale... Because my love for you is like a legend story, It is not a Tale. Forever... it's you and me, Lady.
She gave her all to him, Her heart, body, soul and dream. How many times she caught him lied, But when he reasoned, all the doubts died.
Her heart's melted when he said "I love you" All the fights and misunderstandings were gone. But he keep on doing this whenever he wants to, When he's angry, he said the words that hurts you to the bone. You know this is not right, But you got blinded by your love's light.
If only I can dictate your heart, I want it to push him out. So you can make a brand new start, If only you'll be OK by belting a shout.
You don't deserved all these heartaches and pain. Why he's treating you this way, I'm aching. He didn't realized how lucky he was to got you, If I were him, I will show your real value.
As a friend to you, can you please hear me? Leave some love for yourself, It's just not meant to be. Don't give up hope, cos it's not too late.
