Land of Our Desire

Amador T. Daguio

 

The land was a black dream

Of ruby

Or the navel of the earth.

We built our homes on her belly,

We tilled there our desires.

But we could not find the ruby

On the navel of the earth,

We could not make the ruby

Into the stone of a ring.

The land of our visions loomed

A rich, vast land for us,

But strange hordes came after us

And drove us all away!
