they dig up our roads
and construct
reconstruct our home
until almost no
memory can be traced
of what this
city used to be

we walk
the curtain-like rain
in the mist
and fog
that makes us remember
what made this place
a haven
why we call it our home

why we need to reclaim it.

The Baguio we want is a haven where people’s rights are fully and genuinely respected.

Happy birthday Baguio.
