Solid Ground

Iyabels 1988 (Manila)



The earthquake has shaken my soul

The heart has endured rain as it pours

I can stumble, fall, and drown

but I am standing on solid ground


My thoughts can be corrupted

Might not walk my talk

Might be indecisive and deranged

but I am standing on solid ground


The path to the breakthrough

The realities and pain I have faced

Shining through all the constrictions

coz I have found my solid ground.
