Bangon Pilipinas (“Rise Up Philippines”) inspired by the all the heartwarming international support in the wake of Super Typhoon Haiyan last November. Every character is made up of my personal English translation of the Filipino patriotic song Bayan Ko:
My country, the Philippines, a land of gold/
and of flowers, held Love in the palm of Her hand,
and held beauty and splendor as/ offerings,
and because of Her refinement and beauty,
those from afar grew enticed. My home/
You were enslaved and thrown into darkness and pain.
You cage a free bird, and it will cry in anguish. How much more for a people/ She, so beautiful,
yearning only to be free to fly/ My Philippines,
my treasure, cradle of my tears and suffering/
My dream is to see thee truly free.
I am hoping to make this available as an order-able print soon, if people would like me to.
