An English reflection of the lyrics of a Filipino folk song sang by folk singers, ĎASINí. I have listened to the song over a hundred times and still counting and I wish that this reflection will serve as tribute to the singers.



The air we breathe  
Are becoming stale
Our gentle rivers 
Are angry murky waters 
Progress is not bad
And we have gone far
But our blue seas
Are turning black

The waste we scatter to the winds

Let it not reach heaven 
So when our time comes to pass 
We can still taste a breath of fresh air in Heaven
For the newborns of today 
Will there be pure air for them to inhale
And sturdy trees to climb 
And pristine rivers to swim

Shall we start to lament 
The coming death of sturdy trees
Where wandering birds perch and rest

Felled to satisfy human wants  

In Mother Earth are inherent gifts
Let us treasure and nurture them
If the Good Lord takes them back
will be gone with them


I still wish to walk my last journey

Embraced by the rain
With my guitar 
To sing and frolic in the clouds

a poet in touch with what truly matters;
nicely said, Regino

I hear you, my friend. If only many more did, including our so called 'leaders' today, most of whom don't seem to care at all that we will be leaving our children a most dismal and devastated planet.

This is lovely, Regino. So simply written, but so heartfelt and filled with truth. May I repost it at About These Things sometime?
