Filipino Diaspora



just received a forwarded mail on the current situation of the country in terms of filipinos going out to seek greener pastures.

the article left me bereft of words. it's really quite sad. am i going to join the throng, too? makes me wonder...



I Wonder (The Departure)


This park and these houses, old streets I have walked
Everything dear, will it be here
One day when I am returning?


My friends will get married, have children and home
It sounds so nice, well-planned and wise
Never expecting surprises.


I wonder, it's frightening
Leaving now, is that the right thing?
I wonder, it scares me
But who the hell am I
If I don't even try
I'm not a coward
Oh no, I'll be strong
One chance in a lifetime
Yes, I will take it
It can't go wrong.


My friends and my family, this dull little town
Buses I've missed, boys that I've kissed
Everything old and familiar.


I wonder, it's frightening
Leaving now, is that the right thing?
I wonder, it scares me
But who the hell am I
If I don't leave it
I'm not a coward
Oh no, I'll be strong
One chance in a lifetime
Yes, I will take it...


Yes I will take it, it can't go wrong.



used to sing this when i was a child. am a big ABBA fan. this holds more meaning to me than what i could have thought of back then. when i left home to study high school in the capital, i looked to this song to hold me together and just embrace the future full of anticipation and hope that things will all turn out right. and they did. now i've come back to it again.
