I Am Traveling the World

dsc04424_copy.JPG

The Philippines
A beautiful country
Where I was born and educated
Where I succeeded.

The United States
A land of the free and home of the brave
Where I am now
Where I try to thrive.

From being a kid
To an adult
To a wife and a mother
Then to a wise woman.

I keep moving
I keep hoping
I keep seeking
I keep learning
I keep growing.

My dreams get bigger
My work gets harder
My vision gets wider
My power gets stronger
My voice gets louder.

I have traveled to many places
From the Philippines
To the United States
And now
I am traveling the world.

From being a blogger
To Anchor Writer
To iReporter
And now
As a Voice of Our Future.

I am traveling the world
With wisdom
With courage
With empowerment.

Let us both sing John Lennon's song, and both travel the world. I have a goal to travel to Taj Mahal someday.
