You were born free and full of liberty
Thee, my beloved country
As time passes by, we see thee bloom
Thy people, thy lights they never grow doom
Those were the days full of happiness
The richness thou have, they do profess
But time rapidly changes
Thy people leaved thee breathless
Now corruption, poverty blinds the poor thee
Thy people were left in 'colonial mentality'
Thy politicians, Oh! They make money out of thee
Thy law, they just follow it whenever they're free
Thy rivers, thy seas, they're all now dirty
Thy roads, thy pavements now full of scarcity
Trashes, garbages thou can see them everywhere
Drugs? Alcohol? Maybe I can buy them anywhere
Thy people started to leave
For the greener pastures other countries do give
Even though thou art in thy lowest roar
Where corruptions and evilness surround thy shore
I still hope that one day I will see
The beautiful Philippines as it is to be
Wherein thy people don't need to go abroad
And peace is in everybody's abode
Wherein all thy children are educated
The ashes of your past , now cremated
The day wherein thy people will realise to make thee clean
And the day thy people will say "Oh I love to see thee green"
Wherein pollution and corruption exist no more
Oligarchs they no longer soar
I'm excited to see thee high
Rising-up above the sky
As the Lord continue to prosper thee
Repent so that thou can see
The bigger blessings God has prepared for ye
As how your forchildren will be.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY THE PHILIPPINES!
FELIZ DIA DELA INDEPENDENCIA, MI PATRIA ADORADA!
