There I stood in the land of wonder,
which seemed to me like a plain horror.
Saw my loved ones been attacked,
by those whom my mind couldn't contact.
Helpless there I stood,
for I was less in number.
Yet seeing my mother in danger,
I knew that it's enough of what else I'll remember.
Ran hither and thither,
to get help for stopping the terror.
Though on receiving some aid,
I was shocked to not even find a single head.
Went to the longevous, "Aling Nene ",
[Aling = It's like an aunt in Filipino, popularly used to refer an older woman with respect And, Nene = It's the name of a lady ]
to complain about the unpleasant array.
But on speaking, she seemed to despise my kin,
called me names without it being my sin.
I had no more time to waste,
for I wanted to see my "Pamilya" in haste.
[Pamilya =Used popularly for 'Family' by the people of the Philippines]
Checked the visual proof,
yet failed to find anything worth under that roof.
Now was the time when my fire raged,
I killed each and every guilty that I wanted to be caged.
Proved myself innocent of the felony,
even killed that Nene, the old lady.
Soon enough I saw people cheer for my win,
and felt as if I was some king.
Though in the end, I was left in confusion,
for that crowd had even my lost generation.
There, once again I stood in horror,
for I had killed many in that terror.
Didn't realize that the old Nene was right,
and everything I saw was just an 'oversight'.
