I am Alon Dy, 
Son of Mila and Tong Dy, 
Brother of Kissy and Milton Dy, 
Who loves his wife and his family.

I am a nurse
Who touches the hearts and minds of the patients, 
Who stands and fights for what is right, 
Who knows his limits as a nurse.

I am a dreamer
Who has always option one, two, and three.
I never quit, as it is not in my vocabulary.
Just because others throw their hands up and cry, 
Doesn't mean I'll just leave it high and dry.

I feel bad that some people are ignorant, 
Talking shit behind your back like this and that.
These people need to realize, 
I do not mind and I do not care.

Backbiting, prejudice and hatred, 
These are negative attitudes that need to eliminate.
Trust me, people still change and
Do this now while there is time.
So please, it is not too late.

Once again, I am Alon Dy
Who fears no one except God.
I understand I cannot please everybody.
I admit I make mistakes sometimes.
I say sorry, but still, 
Need to love each and everyone.

I'm aware I have many friends.
I know I select only few.
I understand, yet wonder why I'm like this.
It's plain and simple, 
Few of them are true.
