Standing tall with heads up high, with so much courage running in their veins.
So many reasons to give up, but still holding their grounds no matter what.
Fighting a battle that will never be fair, but still believing that something would change.
Nationalism can be shown in many forms. Many Filipinos have their own. Some organize themselves in the streets and let their little voices be heard by those who won’t even bother. Some use art as their own means of showing what they are fighting for ― through music, poem, visual art, film, photography or any kind of master piece. And some can’t think of any other way but get armed, forget their usual way of living and choose to stay on far flung areas like the mountains.
Nationalism in so many forms,
yet there’s only one ultimate goal,
and that is to never stop until they all get what they really deserve,
even if it cost a life of their very own.
