Silip sa Panaginip (A Peek at a Dream)

A Poem by Mari Baptiste

Illustraition also done by myself

Shackles? Gone!
Chains? Broken!
Door to my cage?
Finally, open!

Free, I was!
Free at last!
Gone were the shadows
From my past

Outside the moon
Shone its brightest bright
Echoed by the shimmering glow of starlight

My love stood across me
He took my hand
I gave him a kiss
And away we ran

Then I awoke

The night felt dark
Shackles back on
As they were at the start

I’ll be posting the Tagalog version of this soon. Orignally planned for this to be in Tagalog but, English is my first language so my thoughts run in English first before I translate them to Filipino hence the translated title.
