Of OFWs and Kisses

Like a small foil pack of Kisses, their funds get snapped up in a matter of seconds by little brown hands. The fruits of their toil, their headaches, wrinkles, their sweat in exchange of a few dollars that get extended life value because it's converted to peso. But no matter if they have to bleed and get tired day in and day out, the greedy dirty hands are always welcome to gobble-finish up-lick clean whatever their money can buy. Because those hands are the reason of their existence, of their being.

The labor of their love and sacrifice that became the silver pyramid Kisses that disappeared in a blink of an eye became ALL THE BEST THINGS IN THE WORLD THAT MONEY CAN'T BUY.
