Long Live Francism

long live francismFrancis Magalona passed away today due to acute myelogenous leukemia. Francis Magalona moved away from the spotlight in the middle of last year to spend more time with his family while undergoing cancer treatment.

I am actually at a loss for words right now. Francis Magalona was my personal hero since I grew up wanting to be like him. All I can think right now of is how my brother and I used to sing to Francis Magalona songs while listening to his cassette tapes back then. And up to this present day, I can still rap to Mga Praning, a Francis Magalona song which runs for more than 10mins.

Francis Magalona will forever be remembered by my generation as we grew up with his songs from Mga Kababayan, to Meron Akong Ano to Kabataan Para Sa Kinabukasan. I am really sad but at the same time happy to have experienced
Francis Magalona through his music.

Wherever you are right now Kiko, you have left a legacy.
Long live
Francis Magalona, Long Live Francism!

So many faces, so many races
Different voices, different choices
Some are mad, while others laugh
Some live alone with no better half
Others grieve while others curse
And others mourn behind a big black hearse
Some are pure and some half-bred
Some are sober and some are wasted
Some are rich because of fate and
Some are poor with no food on their plate
Some stand out while others blend
Some are fat and stout while some are thin
Some are friends and some are foes
Some have some while some have most

Every color and every hue
Is represented by me and you
Take a slide in the slope
Take a look in the kaleidoscope
Spinnin' round, make it twirl
In this kaleidoscope world

Some are great and some are few
Others lie while some tell the truth
Some say poems and some do sing
Others sing through their guitar strings
Some know it all while some act dumb
Let the bassline strum to the bang of the drum
Some can swim while some will sink
And some will find their minds and think
Others walk while others run
You can't talk peace and have a gun
Some are hurt and start to cry
Don't ask me how don't ask me why
Some are friends and some are foes
Some have some while some have most

Every color and every hue
Is represented by me and you
Take a slide in the slope
Take a look in the kaleidoscope
Spinnin' round, make it twirl
In this kaleidoscope world
