A Heart Of A Child

Poem By Maia Padua

Wish we have;
Hands of a child that touches with care
Not with terror;
That will not make others’ eyes cry with anguish
Not with violence;
That will quench others' heart with pain
A stream of flooded tears, drowning everyone's dream.

Wish we have;
Eyes of a child that looks innocent, without envy
A mirror of love and chastity
A mirror of oneness and true humanity,
A mirror of brotherhood
A mirror of God’s love.

Wish we all have;
A heart that of a child, that beats with all honesty,
Without hatred, without envy
Where love dwells, forgiveness flow,
Only God's commandment, we will follow.

Open our ears to;
A country that shouts for unity and brotherhood
Open our hearts to;
A country that knocks for our love,
Listen to its silent voices that plead for peace
Peace we can offer to our children, and our children's children
That, they may feel not the diversity, but, unity.

Let our voices of love echo in our land;
We are brothers...
We are brothers...


in memory of all the victims of such barbaric act... the Maguindanao massacre
May they Rest in Peace

Back Again

Sitting silently beside the sleepy shore
Eyes staring blankly, thoughts drifted away
Pondering on the sweet and warm kisses we've shared
and all those words of love that brightens my day...

You Are That Someone

Heart waited, time framed
For a wonderful, strange feelings
To see the flashing bulbs, the flickering lights
The twinkling stars, the dazzling moonlight

Because He Loves You

For my friends, all my beloved readers
For Ate Meggs....especially for Naidz

God leads us to you,

I'M Your Sunshine, You'Re My Rainbow

You are
My rainbow skillfully painted above the sky,
Making me glance and leave a sweetest smile,
Making me walk with hope even a hundred miles,

We Cry For Peace(The World Cries For Love) ♥

The world is torn apart
Peace is so evasive
Lost is hope; love is
Astray in this maddened world

Just Love Me The Way I Love You

If you stare into my eyes,
Will you see my love for you?
If you look at my lips,
Will you know all my words
