2010 is about to come and the Filipino people will once, yet again, choose a rightful and responsible candidate for presidency. I, who still cannot vote for the fate of my nation, hoped for a liable vote from my older folks. But the truth is I now; doubt those politician people who promised to help this country prosper. Honestly, all they can do is swear but when they are put into their position? They vanished like vapors in the air. They might defense themselves about those projects they’ve done but is it already enough? No.
I have witnessed with my young eyes the sufferings my kin has been experiencing. My kinsmen living deep inside the mountains, those politicians had never experience the shortage of food. When at night, a helpless child cries because of hunger. When the sick people at their small damp house died slowly without any attention given by them. No one could describe the pain felt by his family as they watched him suffer; it’s like tearing your heart into half. These mere folks can buy no medicine. The agony and misery experienced by the victims of crimes increases while the justice is buried by money. On how those evil souls could still walked freely and harm some more innocent lives. While the children of the new generation loose hope for a brighter future as the dark clouds clouded their dreams. Them, who had no chance of being educated properly instead, they are forced to work to fill their every daily needs. And as lives continued to shed unreasonably from the endless war, both civilians and soldiers. I, along with the victims of battle heard the deafening sound of guns. The never-ending fear it brought to our hearts.
While those people in position did nothing but to argue and fight each other, as they opened up more issues on how each of them continued to fill their banks with great amounts of money. Now, I can see how truly they hungered for power, as they show themselves at advertisements every time, pledging themselves again to help us, making us believe on how good and humble people they are. You may say I might have judge them all unfairly especially from the sides of their supporters but come to think to it, they are helping you because you made yourselves merely like their slaves. Even on how anyone says we are a free people from a free country, I still got to utter, we are not. We are still in slavery of an unjust ruling of government from our own selfish kinfolks.
If, somehow you got hurt from my opinion, there only one thing I could say, “prove yourselves worthy without being tailed by the media, as humble servants of the nation.” Then that would make not only me, but to all those people who lost their trust to the government officials, believe that we could still make it through.
