Blood of martyrs dried in the plains
Died in the Valley Mountains
Fighting for independence
Injustices felt when migration arise
In the island of pearls
And in the land of promise
People were put in chaos
When their land grabbed out of laws
Immigrants view as dominant foes
Once an oasis of freedom
Is now a doom of ignorance?
When tyranny became lord of the land
People were driven out of their post
Were given just pinch of hope
To live life in woe forth
Oh the never ending story
Of the endless tyranny
Please leave this home happy!
This poem is dedicated to the people of Sulu and Mindanao
