Treasure Island

Cynthia BuhainBaello

(November 17,1949 / Manila, Philippines)

Let There Be Light!


There are dreams for my country
I may not live to see,
Hopes that my people will be truly free!

Released from bondage of their minds
Where religious lies one can find
A cruel imprisonment that is most unkind!

Chained their thoughts, for so long stifled
By pious robes that for years disabled
Their knowing the Truth as it is truly called.

Deceived and enslaved by a false religion
My people kneel, pray in blind submission
Not seeing they're victims of manipulation!

Woe and disaster now has them exposed
These objects of wrath, gods the winds deposed!
Hand-made gods that could not save, as supposed.

I have prayers for my country
That I speak now quite boldly-
That the Light of God's Truth shine on it, powerfully!

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
