Enough Rizal!
-A poem tribute to our National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal


Enough Rizal, Enough!

You quenched our thirsty land
With pristine blood gushed from your left hand.
Thirst for freedom, the famine for liberty
From tyrants' claws, oppressors' captivity.


Enough Rizal, Enough!

You watered this land with your fervent sweat
You brought us shelter beneath your silhouette.
This land that witnessed the cries and weeps
Of children and women under tyrants' whips.


Enough Rizal, Enough!

You shed you pale blood from your young veins
Sought vengeance against tyrants' demonic reigns.
This verdant land that once was crimson,
Overflowed with blood of soldiers and men in prison.


Enough Rizal, Enough!

Your marmoreal body will prove and suffice,
You rendered your strength - you sacrificed
Your life for the utmost dream of this loved land
So dear and fragile as the sand.


Enough Rizal, Enough!

You've carefully etched in our hearts and soul
That every life that's taken, every life had its role.
You've tenderly carved each words you said
To die a hero is to die victorious instead.


Enough Rizal, Enough!

Let your soul rests in serenity, beneath cerulean skies
Your quest for freedom is complete, we'd reaped the prize.
Your name will forever live in our hearts, in generation's tale
Especially the words you dearly said in your "Last Farewell".
