An enduring poems for every season.
When I was twelve, I had words on my notebooks. Between the pictures of book covers, Disney characters I taped up my favorite poems: is all beauty, a hymn of pleasure always for me, a nostalgia I was too young to really understand.
I studied poems rallying drumbeat of heart– I learned it from my old professor but it wasn’t until I began to read poet heroes that endured by the season. This encouraged me to put all to put in pen to paper, produce more heart warming writing.
… Ordinary people( like me) turned to writing to process their experiences, and a generation of ‘free verse poets’ sprang up almost overnight.
I dream of a printed anthology of my own masterpiece such as ”MGA TULA NI GRACIA,” OFW poetry, an action set of tone and other set of Poems to be remembered.
Ito ba ay Paalam na, ikalawa kong bayan
lupa mong kay sagana
tila paraiso ang dito ay manatili
at kasaganaan dito ay mamamasdan
Puso ay namamanglaw sa hapagkainan
kahinaan ay siyang hain
at luha ang tanging inumin
kadahilanan ay malalim dito sa aking isipan
Biyaya ang aking dito ay pagtapak
Una kong bayan ay matulungan
Maiahon sa hirap aking mga mahal
at upang makamit sariling pangarap
Magkabilang tinig ay aking nadidinig
hiwagang lihim aking tinatanto
Nais bungkalin ang kaparangan
Upang alingawngaw ay madinig
Ganda ng langit aking ngayon ay minamasdan
hinahangad ng puso ang iyong kaloob
kaluluwa ay humihingi ng kinang
na maglingkod pa sa iyo ng may tagumpay.
