Mariannet is a fellow diarist. But unlike most of us who rant online about our lousy jobs, bad airline food, and stupid boyfriends, Marrianet penned how much she wish her family out of poverty.

She was 12 years old. Her family is so poor she's been out of school for two fortnights out of lack for transport money.

It seems the world is unfriendly to Mariannet. A nylon cord around her neck was all she could cling unto.

Mariannet Amper killed herself.

May she rest in peace.

nakakalungkot dahil pati ang mga inosenteng katulad niya ay nagdurusa sa hirap ng buhay at nagtatapos sa kamatayan

@king: mas nakakalungkot na mostly political posturing lang ang mga nasa congress at malacanang (and that goes to both the administration and the opposition); i dont really feel their sincerity in solving poverty sa ating bansa

I can't help but cry when I saw the footage of this child's funeral. Sobra akong affected dun sa hopelessness nung bata. Kung lahat ng batang mahihirap ganun ang gagawin, tataas ng suicide rate sa Pinas.

We should do something about this.

Blame the government. They killed her.

Blame the system. It killed the child.

Nalungkot ako , maluhaluha ako nung mapanood ko sa tv kasi napakabata nya para sumagi, isipin at gawin ang ganung bagay.

Sana magsilbing paalala sa atin ang mga bagay na ito.

Mariannete may you rest in Peace!


Return to a land called paraiso
A place where a dying river ends
No birds dare fly over paraiso
No space allows them to endure
The smoke that screens the air
The grass that's never there
Refrain 1:
And if I could see a single bird
What a joy!
I try to write some words and create
A simple song to be heard by the rest of the
II.I live in a land called paraiso

In a house made of cardboard floors and walls
I learned to be free in paraiso
Free to claim anything I see
Matching rags for my clothes
Plastic bags for the colds
Refrain 2:
And if empty cans were all I have
What a joy!
I never fight to take someone else's coins
and live with fear like the rest of the boys
Paraiso, help me make a stand
Paraiso, take me by the hand
Paraiso, make the world understand
That if I could see a single bird
What a joy!
This tired and hungry land could expect
Some truth and hope and respect
From the rest of the world
Repeat Refrain 2
Repeat Chorus

@lad: Sana magising na government natin, sana mag kapuso naman sila.

Government service is not a means of livelihood, it is public service.

marami ang nagalit dito kanina nung ikunwento namin ang istorya ni Mariannet.

nananawagan na kasi kami ng gloria step down dito.

those people in government deserve to be punished for what happened to her.

@kiks: the government should make a move na, action ang kailangan, if gloria steps down kasi, i dont see any other better leader as of now...what we should do in 2010 is top make sure the right people sit in malacanang
