Transcript of Copy of LIKE THE MOLAVE
There are a thousand waters to be spanned;
There are a thousand mountains to be crossed;
There are a thousand crosses to be borne.
Our shoulders are not strong; our sinews are
grown flaccid with dependence, smug with ease
under another's wing. Rest in peace. Not yet, Rizal, not yet. The land has need
of young blood-and, what younger that your own
Forever spilled in the great name of freedom,
Forever oblate on the altar of the free? Not you alone, Rizal. O souls
And spirits of the martyred brave, arise!
Arise and scour the land! Shed once again
your willing blood! Infuse the vibrant red
into our thin anemic veins; until
we pick up your Promethean tools and, strong Out of the depthless matrix of your faith
in us, and on the silent cliffs of freedom,
we carve for all time your marmoreal dream!
Until our people, seeing, are become
like the Molave, firm, resilient, staunch,
rising on the hillside, unafraid, Strong in its own fiber, yes like the Molave! Rafael Zulueta
