Totoy bilisan mo, bilisan mo ang takbo Ilagan ang mga bombang nakatutok sa ulo mo Totoy tumalon ka, dumapa kung kailangan At baka tamaan pa ng mga balang ligaw
Totoy makinig ka, wag kang magpa-gabi Baka mapagkamalan ka’t humandusay dyan sa tabi Totoy alam mo ba kung ano ang puno’t dulo Ng di matapos-tapos na kaguluhang ito
[Refrain] Hindi pula’t dilaw tunay na magkalaban Ang kulay at tatak ay di syang dahilan Hangga’t marami ang lugmok sa kahirapan At ang hustisya ay para lang sa mayaman
[Chorus] Habang may tatsulok at sila ang nasa tuktok Di matatapos itong gulo
At ang dating munting bukid, ngayo’y sementeryo Totoy kumilos ka, baliktarin ang tatsulok Tulad ng dukha, nailagay mo sa tuktok
[repeat Refrain and Chorus]
[repeat Refrain and Chorus]
Di matatapos itong gulo
NatUre and Greca - - - speaks! ! !
Have YOu seen a bamboo? The tallest grass ever exist, Dancing and bending and swaying... Whistling upon nature's grace?
Have YOU seen a woman, Standing beneath heavy rains and winds; And thunders and lightnings that flashes, Enduring and firmly believing, That she can surpass everything?
Have YOU seen a canvass, With nature's subject on it; I can figure it very well; Like a withering bamboo and teary woman on it?
Nature..nature..hear Greca's cry... May yOu strongly fight as I fight; May yOu survive long from harmful hands; That never cease tO harm YOUr sight! !
(Monday, July 21,2008* A poem I created as a tribute to nature and to arts I am with.)

...tHe tHree SIDES
TATSULOK means triangle, a shape which has three sides and three angles. This song is originally sung by Noel Cabangon, well-known Philippines' folk singer and is revived by the well-known band of this era, the BAMBOO.
This song apparently one of my favorites because it impose my country's political and economic stability. The Philippine flag was first conceptualized by General Emilio Aguinaldo in 1897 during his exile in Hong Kong, drawing inspiration from the flags used by the Katipunan and the Cuban revolutionaries. The first flag was sewn by Marcela Agoncillo, her daughter Lorenza, and Doña Delfina Herbosa de Natividad, niece of José Rizal, the Philippines' national hero.
Detail of the sun
According to official sources, the white triangle stands for equality and fraternity; the blue field for peace, truth and justice; and the red field for patriotism and valor. The eight primary rays of the sun represent the first eight provinces (Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Manila, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, and Bataan) that sought independence from Spain and were placed under martial law by the Spaniards at the start of the Philippine Revolution in 1896. The three stars represent the three major geographical divisions of the country: Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao (Luzviminda).
I may appear disgracing my country by posting such videos but I am not. I give immeasurable loyalty and honor for my country. Giving my loyalty in the service at the best I can, willing to sacrifice myself for my country's call of service. Abiding and giving my pledge in allegiance to Philippines' law with honor, justice and freedom; putting in motion by one people - for God, for the People, for Nature and for the Country.
Being in the intelligence service, I undertake internal security operations against terrorism and groups that are largely organized which committed crimes and that were identified as threats of my country. I also undertake internal security operations and investigation on suspected corrupt government officials or those who suspectedly imposing and are identified or deemed as a security threat. By such, being one of the selected IS, I specifically undertake the risk assessment, investigation protection and security training of members. And being a well-trained intel, I have done such substantial scrutiny for some corrupt government officials and so with the head and members of the service. I offered my perseverance and sacrifice, my courage and integrity, my skills and wit, my responsibility and passion at this work thus, giving honor for my country and I am proud being one of intelship pride.
I found myself being a lover of peace, harmony, credibility, integrity and truthfulness. I never turn my back until I don't hold substancial and valid evidences. I gather facts vividly. Yet I am cautious with what I gather, maintaining humbleness and keep some for myself.
Play the music video to understand the lyrics of the song.
It is a disgrace to see an organization which sworn and pledged in loyalty of the service but bearing members of the board which are inhibiting against the law. It is a shame to witness respectful figures in public but tentacles of greed and corruption are apprehended. Their roots are crawling underground.
The secret things belong unto the Lord our God; but those things
which are revealed belong unto us and to our children
forever, that we may do all the words of this law.
I am a seed that ever grown unto a good soil. Bearing me will be like a hundred of excitements, a lot of patience, a ton of hopefulness and an ocean of joy and courage. Maybe...
Through the years, I've witnessed enough courage to face the aftermath of being with God's curse unto my forefather's imperfections....I saw things where lies God's anger to men. Earthquakes, nature's ravage revenge, political aspirations for own interests, warriors of dummy countries trying to rule the world that belongs to every man...Religious beliefs clashing into unending debates (they never realized sometimes that what they are debating is their own beliefs of themselves) that might as well lead men into confusions.
This world belongs to every man. No one can ever control it except the One who made it, who created it. But man overpowered what has given freedom of choice to manknd. Their roots of greediness are into secret grounds...growing into different directions; nurturing their own earthly desires and secret motives. Roots come on density like the one we are seeing on this picture. One root is to get nourishment from the soil of the earths wealthiness; one root may go for deeper clinging on earth's rule of greediness and power. Small ones grow into different directions to spread its innocent motives of seemingly helpful hands but still, personal wellbeing counts most.
We have our own roots. We have our own personal motives. We all have personal greediness on things....Might as well greediness of earthly desires or greediness of unconditional love for the wellness of this world. There will always be roots of what we do...We are bound to do things we have chosen to do so. On how we want things to be done. But things are with laws to seek and to perform. The aftermath of what we do are the roots we will portray. And these roots will lead us into different faces of our lives, depending on how we absorb the nourishment we want to get from this world. Roots are our secret motives. And these secret motives and real purposes will always be revealed. But those things that revealed to our eyes belong to us and to the children of this world. We have to make it worthwhile as we know all things have its aftermath. We are bound to laws of goodness and love. We are created to have this willingness to make this earth into fruitful one. But where lies our roots? Where on earth, we will stand and make our roots go? Wherever we will be, whatever roots we will grow, the truth lies clearly...One day, there is a force, so strong force to let our roots be uprooted...and we may regret how we made our roots so weak into this so beautiful world we live...
Roots of our acts reflects to the fruits we bear. Our personality reflects how well our roots are growing into this earth's abundance. Our body (trunk) will tell how strong our roots are. Our leaves may be seen in green and we blossom as long as we know how to set things on laws of goodness and love. Be a good tree of good roots...Be with great willingness to be with the law of how you want to be. We are given profound chances and choices. Be in good roots and cling to what is right....
