Treasure Island

Pacific Hernandez

(September 17,1937 / Marikina City)

Not With Three Eyes


I was in need and my need was dire
But did'nt look at money with three eyes
I looked at it with only two
As I watched my children learn and grow

Now my children are learned and they are grown
And in ripe old age I am now
Although I crave for some more time
I just look at money with one eye
A meager sum of it I keep
Enough to fill my daily needs
If ever I'll have much of it to own
I know it can't my life prolong
