Hindi makita,
Hindi maalala,
Ang tanging pag-asa,
Tuluyang nawala.

Hindi na alam kung saan pupunta,
Hindi mapakali, natataranta,
Hindi na mapigilan,
Ang damdaming kinakatakutan.

Sa bangin ng kawalan,
Nahulog ng biglaan,
Walang kasama ni kaagapay,
Sa lugar ng pagkakahimlay.

Ngunit bakit nga ba ako narito?
Paano nga ba ako napadpad sa pook na ito?
Hindi ko maalala ang bawat detalye,
Basta may hinahanap akong importante.

Pinipilit kong alalahanin kung ano,
Ngunit baka hindi ano, baka sino,
Kung sino, sino nga ba?
Ang paglalaanan ko ng panahon upang makita.

Ang mga katagang ito ay galing sa isang awitin,
Awiting umantig sa aking damdamin,
Dahil ang sagot ay "ikaw",
Ikaw, ang hinahanap ng puso kong ligaw.

Di ko alam kung paano ko gagawin,
Ako'y di mapakali, aking inaamin,
Dahil ako'y kinakabahan,
Mga ginagawa ko'y di mo magustuhan.

Dahil ito lang aking makakaya,
Sa kasamaang palad ito lang talaga,
Itong aking mga kalatas at tula,
Ito lang at wala nang iba.

Damdamin ang naging panulat,
Inspirasyon ang syang nagtulak,
Musika ang sa aki'y umalalay,
Sa katahimikan ng umagang walang kapantay.

Di lahat ng tula ko ay iisa ang balak,
Yung iba'y para lamang ika'y humalakhak,
Ngunit di ko alam kung ako'y matagumpay,
Upang mapasaya ka ng tunay.

Kay rami nga ng aking naiisip,
Mga "sana", parang panaginip,
Inaasam, nais makamtan,
Kahit yung man lang, mapagtagumpayan.

Sana ikay napasaya ko,
sana napangiti ka kahit papano,
Sana naunawaan mo,
Mga sanang tulad nito.

Sana tanggapin mo,
Sana paniwalaan mo,
Sana pagpasensyahan mo,
Sana, sana, sana, hay nako.

Sana man lang naramdaman mo,
Ang damdaming ikinubli ko,
Sa mga salita ng aking tula,
Na sana, sa puso mo'y tumama.

Sana man lang ika'y aking naantig,
Sana man lang ika'y aking napakilig,
Sapagkat di kaya ng aking mga bibig,
Di kayang sabihin, minsa'y nanginginig.

"sana" na higit sa aking pang-unawa,
Tulad ng "sana makuha ko rin ang iyong paghanga",
Ngunit iyo'y parang isang malayong tala,
Hanggang tingin lang, mata ko lang ang nakakakita.

Di ko alam kung ito'y panunuyo na ba,
Liniligawan na ba kita?
Dahil di ko alam sa sarili ko ang totoo,
Ang alam ko lang, ikaw ang tanging gusto.

Ako'y natatawa,
Ang landi ba naman nitong binata,
binatang naghahangad na sana,
Sana sa tamang panahon, ika'y kanyang makasama.

Ang pinapangarap nyang dalaga.

monkey do, monkey see
when we grow what will be our legacy?
we move without a hint of originality

such bland colors were painted onto us by society.
these old folks bring such pity; living in the past,
teaching the young ones about a future they can't see

Your smile is a viral infection
So horrid, sinister and vile.
Like your cheeky attitude
Inflated into a senseless magnitude

You come at me with a boring aggression
Brought by your own selfish affection

We both know you're not the fairest of 'em all
And to you, no one would ever fall.
But I'm bored so I'll give you a call

You can't be appreciated because no one understands you but I'm patient so dont paint the world blue

Flaws, you've got tons.
Answers, you've got none
You're a wreck, imperfect
because you're a growing perfection
Hey, Mr. Soldier,

Have you seen my mother?
How about my father?
Brother? Sister?
No? You don't know, mister?

Eh? You're asking me where they last went?
Hmm, I don't know...maybe outside the tent?
They said they need to vent
Out some stuff and rent
Out necessary supplies but Kent
doesn't understand, so I stayed in the tent!

But then, it went boom on the outside.
I was scared, so I cuddled in the corner to hide.

Finally, it went quiet after some time,
So I decided to go out. I grabbed some dimes,
Because I want to buy something from Aunt Lime.

But when I got out,
Everything was black. Then I saw a stout
Man outside. His face was weird, and he looked like Gout,
My brother. His body was also weird, and in the mouth
Was something like tomato juice falling out.

That's when I thought that he wasn't my brother,
Because my brother hates tomato like no other!

There were also some bodies around.
One was big, one was small, and one was round.

I thought they were my family,
But I heard they were going to Emily auntie,
So they should be at auntie's.

Then more time had passed, then you came, Mr. Soldier.
Eh, why are you crying, Mr. Soldier?

Please don't be sad anymore.

Ah, I know!
Hey, mister! Look, a rainbow!

Huh, why are you surprised, mister?
There's even a plane cruiser.
I remember I used to gaze at them with my sister...

Ah, it dropped a kit!
Hey mister, look a bit
Further! It dropped a kit!
I want to get it!

Bye, mister!
