The movie projector stops

Focusing on what's ahead
In the zone is where you're at

trampling one another,

My heart is barely beating
Living for long-haul loving

The Caterpillar and Butterfly

The caterpillar and butterfly
differ in shape and color but

Philippines Pride



                        three stars and a sun

At the Track

         At the Track
At the starting line
Engines revving vroom, vroom, vroom
Burning rubber - GO

Better stop now for new tires

Shadows

No matter how white you are or 
how light you become
When the sun hits, you're always gonna have
a dark person appear behind you
To remind you of where you came from

What goes up, Must come down

Beautiful Lake Erie bound by New York 
Romantic honeymoon, bottle and cork 
It went up with Viagra 
spilled unlike Niagara 
racing fast to arrive before the Stork!

Cheers!

Gold-Trochee

If my horse on the race course
a winner for me
then the course for my race horse
makes me debt free.

So the beat of the mare's feet
makes me debt free
gold such a treat for this feat
a winner for me.

RACIAL APPLICATIONS

Pen frozen in hand,
my “race” on high demand,
Asia, Asians,
they have land,
black and white,
I see no land,
uncheck the box,
something’s not right,
there are no such people 
as black or white

Short Race poem by Wilfredo Derequito| Details | |

Humanity's Face

stand by your mirror,
see the human race
staring at your core,
reflected on your face.

a race that cannot forgive,
a race knowing no mercy,
a beast that does not give,
a beast that loves to slay.
