The Lost Filipino

Geopoet writes the realism of the political spectrum of the Philippines from the ground of the Filipino masses. It portrays the realistic views of the small people who felt they are wrought of mass poverty as a result of so much political squabbles and bickering both from the top and lowest echelon of their own government.

Who among the many can compare the heroic act of protecting the sanctity of the ballots as that done by one Musa Dimasidsing, a Filipino Muslim patriot? It is still wonderful to note that a very remote man of integrity, brave and true, can spill blood of his own to rise above him, protecting what he believed to be a sanctified vote for all his people. His bravery is tremendously shocking for ordinary people; but it seems that his death has not shake off the wiles of the political crocodiles and monkeys who insurmountably know the cause of his heroic act. I can see them celebrating their evil deeds while turning their heads upon a fall guy who tried to be honest enough to withstand the uncontrollable flow of dishonesty.

Those who are involved in shooting Musa Dimasidsing is guilty of killing the voice of those who dare to fight anomalies and corruptions! Lawless as these men may be, but I believe there’s one up there, somewhere in the horizon of justice, one will come to end their own crooked deeds.

I’d like to pay my heartfelt respect on Musa Dimasidsing who tried to protect my solemn vote! Yes, he protected me and my future children! No, he did not die in vain. Many will rise from their cocoons so that voices can be heard from on top of the mountain. Many will move forward to steward political change! But I don’t think that the one who was involved in killing Musa Dimasidsing has that spirit to sit on the Executive Chair nor face Congress or face the august Sangguniang Bayan arena of legislative truths. He may be around, but I believe his conscience will slowly eat his pride, his slothful desires, his powerful greed of power, and his infernal personality. He will be known and Musa Dimasidsing will rise upon the horizon of his heroic act of protecting by his own life my solemn vote!

Musa Dimasidsing can be likened to the heroes of the golden age in the Philippine historical spectrum. He is comparable to Rizal, Bonifacio, Diego Silang and Apolinario Mabini, whose heroic fervors are still burning up to this age. Musa Dimasidsing’s sense of duty is a patriotic light that will shake the very foundation of the political rape that has long been exploiting the poor stance of the powerless mass. His blood will cry out of the dust and collect what is due from those unscrupulous individuals who inflicted his death. I dearly believed that Musa Dimasidsing will be a curse to those political rapists who will soon perish with their own evil deeds.

During the May 14 Elections, I’ve seen the rotten angst of the political system of our dear Philippines. Only a few true patriots have displayed their undying love of country and only one I’ve known was willing to risk his life for many: Musa Dimasidsing.

I believe there will be a few others who will follow his footsteps until the ripe time of political change can be realized. But whoever they may be, I shall write the same voice that cries out from the mouth of a lost Filipino.
