Ancestral Home

Batungan, a natural rock formation in Mandaon, Masbate.

I entered the heart of this living rock,
hollow and eerie;
bats and other creatures lurk in the dark;
it's a scary story.

Years after I visited this scene once more,
and stayed longer;
I saw shadows moving in the rock's core;
it's a story to wonder.

It speaks of an allegory and history,
where man was born,
when man lived a simple life and free,
happy and at home.
