Dear Juan,

In one surgery I am now undergoing.
I don’t know when it will end
but the pain will endure.

I’m sad ‘ the heart is broken.
My wish is to be saved and healthy.

Even if the process is bloody and dangerous,
so stay at home, avoid trouble.

Cooperate with your sibling so I can be healed.
They don’t sacrifice for the end, their family will be with them.

Engraving in history that we are unite.
To the beloved town, hope will break.
To Almighty let’s pray.
He has mercy, our prayer will be heard.

Loving,
Mother Filipinas 🇵🇭

Here is Kimberly’s caption and poem in her FB wall as posted April 18, 2020.

I got inspired with the thoughts that popped into my mind yesterday
so I painted a syringe art and wrote a poem about her.
Our motherland is sick. She needs you to heal. She’s battling inside the operating room now.
Can we help her move to recovery room?
or help her transfer to the ward as soon as possible.
Spread the love. Spread the hope.
We heal as ONE.
One love, one nation.🇵🇭
In the name of God almighty, Inang Filipinas will be discharged soon.
Amen!
