She was broken up

Into seven thousand

One hundred seven pieces

Of unproportionate sizes

Mother Nature compensated her

With the longest coastline

In the whole world

The deepest point

On the planet

That man can ever dive

And the most biologically diverse

Waters of Mother Earth

More diverse than the clouds

And stars above.

She is as pure

And beautiful

As the Mother Pearl

Lying in the heart

Of the Orient Seas

Her beauty captivated millions

They want her

Keep her

As their very own.

But her beauty

Has its own curse

Nature puts her

On fire

On the edges

Of the largest ocean on Earth

In the Pacific Ring Of Fire.

She is as just big

As the Mini Mouse

Compared with the GiantPanda

Its breadth and dimension

Have been laid down

Since time immemorial

In accordance with the laws of men and God

Anchored by the values

Of equality and respect.

Her territorial jurisdiction

Is just enough for her children to settle

And divide among themselves

Yet super powers

Of different colors want

Her bluest seas

Her whitest shores

Her longest coastline

Her deepest waters.

Her volcano which peak

Claims the sky with the

Most perfect cone in the whole world

And that Philippine Eagle

That soars and dominates the vastness

Of the sky, the largest of all Eagles

With its mighty wings

It can even reach the heavens above.

Oh! Our beloved Philippines

We love and adore

In your great bosom

We seek refuge

And solace

Your beauty

Gives us a taste of heaven

Your love

Gives us the strength to conquer all evils.

No man

No nation

Could ever take your place

In our hearts

In our minds

Even in our very souls.

No man

No nation

Could ever conquer

You once more

Under the mighty hands

Of super powers

We would rather die

A zillion times.

Every single fish and grain of sand

In your seas and ocean

Every bird that flies

Above your sky

Every fauna and flora

In your forests

Every Filipino

From Womb To Tomb

We shall protect and respect

Until our last breath.

These, we swear

Under the name

Of our heroes and ancestors

The Youth to whom

Our hopes and burning dreams

Will continue

To all Overseas Filipino Workers

Who sacrificed the comfort of your love

For posterity of one's country and family

And to the One Above

Our Almighty God.
