More Than a Century Of Independence

TWELFTH OF June, 1898
the Philippine Flag;
blue, red, three stars and a sun,
was first presented and waved
in front of the crowd, all singing the song;
the Philippine National Anthem,
–Lupang Hinirang
..
–as a sign of independence! Independence!

Philippines finally got
the freedom it has been waiting for,
the freedom people has been longing for,
the freedom people has been fighting for.

Filipinos finally saw
the light that has been peeking then,
the light people has been needing then,
the light for all the Filipinos out there.

Twelfth of June, 2012
it’s been more than a century;
exactly hundred fourteen years
having the freedom Filipinos used to fight for,
having the freedom worth having for!

Twelfth of June, 2012
Philippines –still got the freedom
free from any hands out there.
Filipinos –still got the freedom
free from any collars out there.

Independence! Independence!

Fellow Filipinos, Happy Independence Day Philippines! (:
I am proud to be a Filipino!
