Mandaun, Masbate, Philippines – The coming of the storm can’t prevent the poverty-stricken people of Mandaun, Masbate to go fishing despite the bad weather. Coast guard have to stop them from going into the sea to prevent untoward incidents to happen in this time of the rainy season. Warnings have been announced and circulated not to go on sail but some fishermen ignored such warnings.

i’d like to see you bouncing from earth to moon
caressing me to start a lightning to boooom
to have my own ticket to reach the sky
is to give you the chance to see my lovely smile

from darkness i pass a lonely passageway
guessing which route to avert a possible stray
followed a glittering light guiding me beside
my shadow is my friend escorting me with pride

i hear the sounds of trouble in front and at the rear
but i won’t give a chance to awaken hints of fear
i won’t wait myself to wilt inside a tough cocoon
sand dune is the place for a head-on collision

hear me, oh lovely moon of the peaceful night
among the races, spread your bright light far and wide
i can see you up there, it’s also seen by black and white
this is our earth, you’re our moon, we don’t have to fight


land, water and air are here we all own
leaders of countries, lead for peace, make it known
share what you have for all humanities to survive
like the busy bees living and sharing a beehive
