I grew up in a country full of history,

From the Spanish Era to the Americans,

From Martial Law to People Power.

I grew up in a country filled with passion,

From sports to flag-waving

From  one helping hand to

A community.

I grew up in a country

That never loses hope.

From one war to the other,

From one calamity and another,

My country stands still.

We may cry,

We may fall,

You may stick us with dirt,

With trials,

With tragedies,

We will stand up.

And we will continue

To survive.

Because I grew up in a country,

Where there is unity.

Where love, hope and passion,

Are our inspiration.

For we are a strong nation,

That will continue to hold on

No matter what the situation.
