Money can buy anything
But doesn’t really mean something

Money can buy bungalow
But not a home for a widow

Money can buy a rank
But not a good tongue

Money can buy blood to longer life
But not a life itself

Money can buy arms to impede harm
But not a charm to the orphans

Money can buy war material
But not a freedom of immortal 

Money can buy independence
But not liberty of minds

Money can hamper Sulu self-government
But not sovereignty from the people’s conscience
Because of money Sulu Nation suffers
So please don’t use money to help rebuild Sulu after bombings!

Isn't it a total freedom?
That Sulu's really aimed

Since without independence
Seeking for freedom has no end!  

Dedicated to the defenders of Justice and Freedom of Sulu Nation.

    money is the root of all evil, money is nothing, money can not buy Love, if I had a choice I know whick I'd pick every time and it's not money, it's the Love of God, a powerful write I dont know much about sulu but your poem is passionate in what you feel is right, only Jesus is the key to total freedom, God bless you
