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 .

      Thank you Aviannovice.Jeepneys are the iconic mode of transportation in the Philippines.If you ever go the the philippines, I think you will enjoy the novelty of riding on it even though it is quite uncomfortable which is part of the fun.
