On Poetry

(11 March 2002, Lapu-lapu)

I really do not like to write poems.
I like to write emotions.
Any piece I have crafted into words
I bind with them my passion and sentiments.
Each line conveys not just thoughts but feelings.
They tell how human I am.
They prove I am very vulnerable.
They expose my intimate moments.
When I lay down the words with my pen
I lay down not just a poem,
I reveal my inner self,
I share my life.
