i’ve fallen in love with how chaotic Manila,
the city where for most Filipinos, dreams do come true.
the busy streets with their inexplicable traffic are a lovely photograph in my eyes.
there is the daily grind and mayhem in Recto, the iconic lane where students converged, creating what we call human traffic, ’twas for me poetry in motion.
the collective honking sound of the cars, a soothing lullaby to my ears.
the unique vibrant colors worn by young men and women, a representation of which University they belong to.
somewhere along the iconic Mendiola bridge, where the famous 1987 Mendiola massacre happened, is a University.
a University where brilliant doctors, nurses, and public figures were born, even Amazon’s best-selling poet graduated.
oh, i could spend all day long remembering and reminiscing how it all started, a love story no one ever expected.
right at the heart of Manila in the busy street of Recto along the corner of the iconic Mendiola bridge.
a chaotic city, a busy street, an iconic bridge, a famous university, a love story.
why is it my love, that when i look at you
all i wanna do is melt in your arms and fall in love all over again?
Mendiola is one of the most iconic streets in the busy City of Manila, Philippines.
