“Peek-a-Boo” – Makati, 06 July 2016

sally forth
and explore
the wide
around you
and gain
some measure
of wisdom.

let your
get the
of you
and learn
and love
and live.

crawl out
of your
rise up
from your
and spread
those wings
towards realms
and soar.

let your
run away
with you
and learn
and love
and live.
