HAPPY VIEW OF AN OFW

Written by: romeo naces

.

What am I here for 
and whose citizen am I
in this prosperous city of oil, 
sand and sky,

where the high and mighty 
corporate MIS
only pays for but never 
feels my loneliness?

Oh, I should have long 
been frolicking joyfully      
neath the palm trees 
by the sea with my family.

Well, I have had ready 
answers long time ago,
and although to me they're 
less convincing now,

I still proudly wear blue-sky 
smiles just like before
for very soon our home 
will have one baby more !
