Pulubi

Sumuong ka sa digmaan ng damdamin
Tanging sandata mo ay ang iyong mithiin
Lagablab ng puso ang sisidlan ng hangarin
Na makaalpas pa at maabot ang mga bituin.

Gula-gulanit man ang iyong kasuotan
Sukdulan man kung ika’y pandirihan
Iniinda ang sakit na nararamdaman
Hindi papatalo sa mga mata ng lipunan.

Hangad mong umahon na sa kahirapan
Pilit nagsusumikap kahit walang pinag-aralan
Binubuhay ang sarili para sa kinabukasan
Kahit na sa kalsada pa manirahan.

Masakit isantabi ng sarili mong bayan
Walang malasakit na ikaw ay tulungan
Namamayani sa’yong puso’t isipan
Na ikaw ay lalaban hanggang kamatayan.

  1. Wow. That’s a lot of passion right there and quite a breathe of fresh air. I haven’t seen anyone write in Tagalog in a long time….I actually miss my college publication colleagues. 🙂

    BTW, this just reminded me of Daniel Dejapin who recently got a scholarship in a university in Germany. 🙂

    • Thank you May for taking time to read one of my poems. 🙂 It makes me feel stress-free whenever I compose poems or any other literature. And one of the things I love write on is about national issues and the society. 🙂

      Yeah! I know him! I have read an article about him and I was so amazed and inspired about his perseverance. 🙂 He deserves what he is receiving right now.
