The Filipino in Me - Insights into Living Heritage
Entry by Maria Antonieta 'Ting' Pimentel-Elger. Sherwood Park, Alberta
Belonging to me is heart wrenching
I don't belong here nor there or where?
Yes like an outcast, misplaced wanderer
Belonging is an out of this world concept
Since I don't feel I am accepted nowhere
Belonging can also be a mere state of mind
I can create my art and escape this earth
Like a pond in the sky or a tree rooted in air
Producing kindness disrupting race and might
No reasoning-mindless, intuitive and abstract
Yes exactly like my Arts of Belonging!
