It's actually based on a friend's dream, he asked me to draw a narrative conclusion out of it.
Hope I did succeed?

BTW I'm not from the Philippines so if I went wrong somewhere with the meanings then please let me know. :)

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.

Nothing but helpless was I,

for my shadow 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'.
