Where Are The Youth? by Dr. Jose Rizal

Friday, December 14, 2012
Where are the youth
who will consecrate
their budding years,
their idealism and
enthusiasm for the welfare
of their country?
Where are the youth
who will generously
pour out their blood to
wash away so much shame,
so much crime,
so much abomination?
Pure and spotless
must the victim be that the
sacrifice may be acceptable.
Where are you,
youth who will embody in
yourselves the vigor
of life that has lifted
our veins,
the purity of ideas that
has been contaminated
in our hearts?
We await you, youth.
Come, for we await you.
