I am the second child of my parents
Parents were lovely and not so strict
The son was premature, when he was born
Born in the month of May in the morn
I’m a Sagittarius woman
Woman of fire and air
Air as I love to travel
Travel to different places
My birthday is in December
December ten and I’m an archer
I was born in Manila
Manila is the capital of the Philippines
Philippines is such a lovely country
Country with 7,100 islands
Islands big and small, far and wide
Wide awake to see all the nature
I’m a Filipino by birth
Birth, bred and I know my worth
So for my birthday, I’d travel
To different places while I’m able*
