When I Was a Kid, Wrong Was Wrong Even If Others Did It

When I was a kid and my parents would confront me about being disobedient or doing something wrong, I would say stuff like, “But he started it.” or “Why are you only getting mad at me? There are other people doing it too.”

I never got away with it. They taught me that just because other people are doing something wrong doesn’t make wrong things right, and doesn’t mean the wrong I did was permissible.

I watch our politicians and cringe that our leaders, grown adults, not kids, face charges against them like kids, not by answering the charges but by charging others with their own crimes.

And I cringe when I listen to voters who actually think that’s sensible. What is sensible for the political survival of one man is many times what causes the injustice towards millions of others.

Buti Nalang (melody)

Finally, here is the melody I promised a long time ago to post. Just hooked my keyboards back on to work on my brother  Joshua’s song, so was finally able to do a rough recording for this.

Buti Na Lang

Verse 1:
‘Kala ko
Tatanda na lang akong ganito
Mag-isang tataba’t kakalbo
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Buti na lang ngayon
Sabay tayo…

Verse 2:
‘Kala ko
Na wala ng iibig sa akin
Na kabigha-bighanii ng tulad mo
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Buti na lang nagtagpo
Ang ating puso…

Chorus:
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Di natigil
Sa maling akala
Ang ating kuwento
Buti na lang
Mali ang akala ko

Bridge:
Buti na lang
Tayo’y naniwala
Na ang tunay na pagibig
Ay galing lamang sa langit
Buti na lang talaga
Buti na lang

Chorus:
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Di natigil
Sa maling akala
Ang ating kuwento
Buti na lang
Mali ang akala ko

Ending Verse:
Alam ko
Na Ikaw lamang sa buong mundo
Humahawak at mayari ng puso ko
Buti na lang
Buti na lang
Buti na lang talaga
Buti na lang talaga

Buti na lang talaga
Ako ang pinili mo
