I Miss My Innocence
I miss my swing, I miss my whip,
I miss my mother's grip,
my dirty hands and my soiled feet
my filthy face, my innocence.
I miss the way i used my slipper,
the incorrect way of wearing my t-shirt
I miss my friends and their sweet grins,
the way we talk and brag,
I miss the places where we used to play-
I miss my childish years yeah!
i miss my innocence.
After too long years of happiness,
Happened the unexpected scripted mess.
The radiant face of my golden city,
Have lost its fascinating quality.
The rivers became angry
and their catastrophic sound,
brought great disaster to the town.
The mighty water swelled,
And all its strength was but a plethoric thrill.
Her boastful streets that always
emitting sound emotions
Became a grieving avenue as an accolade
The saddest song was heard
across the nation, sang by the choir of wind
of elegy and lamentation.
But the raging water was but a blister,
A disastrous warning from
the All-things Maker.
Hear us from heaven (A Prayer for Cagayan de Oro City)
Most loving and precious Father
God of infinite worth and limitless wisdom
Make us aware Father, incline your ear
to our entreaties and suggestions.
You are above all else, we are low
Worship and giving you praise are the only things we know
Your unsurpassed greatness is the song of our land
Now we are beseeching Father, please extend your hands.
The City of Cagayan de Oro is friendly and serene
But we are not contented indeed, we are not at ease
Some populace here are outwardly sane
But on the inside they are so uncertain.
Enable us to speak boldly until your work is done
We gladly give you our constancy so let your kingdom come.
Open their spiritual eyes as we pray earnestly,
present the gospel through motion or activity.
Father, help us to cut the cord of diversity
Make us one strong unified Christ's body
