משורר צעיר בליבו ששירתו התפתחה בגיל מאוחר. הרגישו מוזמנים להשתתף בחווית שירתי.

Nation of Many Islands

We are The People of the Sulu Sea
We're The People
of the corals and the blue reefs
We're The People of The Philippines
Filipinos, graceful to friends
yet, chopped off our enemy's head
on the rocky beaches of Cebu and Mactan
we speared Magellan to his death
no body was left
no remains.
our islands are open to all
but no place for conquerors
our Nation is consistently forming
and reforming and merging
and splintering again
to be one
of endlessly rich cultures and beliefs
from the provinces of Visayas and Mindanao
all the way to Manila City
we, the indigenous islanders
victorious over Magellan's fleet
We're the people of the future
and proud
