MALAYSIA ,MANILA -my SHANGRILA
Wandering lust born out of insatiable longing
To embark on a life without constraints on moving
How cruel is the cage that kept me from my being
For exploring the world is my ultimate healing.
So,Malaysia ,Manila beckons me
The Asia where I was born to be
The roots of my soul ,the river of my heart
Even the years away, I was never apart.
Philippines my country ,I've spent my youth
Home and school, I spent them both.
Where my mind was sharpened and my character shaped
Even against the tides of a turbulent STATE.
Malaysia a country I've never been
But had been calling me ever since
Must be the allure of its tranquility and peace
That I can't resist to follow,before I'm at ease.
October ,October please come fast
Because my restless heart cannot last.
The places I dared , the places I conquered
Has not rested my soul and kept it bothered
My dream, my longing- Malaysia,Manila
Calls for the beats of my Shangrila .
