This Is

The Filipino in Me - Insights into Living Heritage

Entry by Kehrl Meeno Reyes. Edmonton, Alberta.



This is how I speak

Confident in my mother-tongue

Shaking empathy in another

Yet my truths deliver

This is how I dress up

Comfortable as I grow


Maybe I can tell you more.

This is how I accept

I stay despite being afraid

This is how I forgive

I do my best to forget.

This is how I love

Generous and pure

Same feeling as the beautiful sunsets

There as long as you will

This is how I am

Grateful of how you are

How we both partake

in how we are together.
