Sarili

Sa ibayong silangan, doon ako isinilang,
Bayan ng matatapang, sabak sa digmaan.
Lupang ipinaglaban, kapalit ay kalayaan,
Talino’t tapang inialay para sa kinabukasan,
Malimot ay huwag sana yaong ipinaglaban.

Taas noo bilang pilipino, kayumanggi aking balat.
Hindi mareklamo, marunong makuntento sa sapat.
Maluwag sa kapwa, maasikaso sa pagtanggap,
Matiyaga, masikap bago pa ang araw ay umangat,
Mga dahilan kaya hinahangaan tayo ng lahat.

Kay bilis ng panahon, madaming nagbago,
Teknolohiya umusbong, tinulungan ang tao.
Sobrang kalayaan sa paghahayag ating natamo,
Minanang asal, unti unti nang naglaho.
Apoy ng nasyonalismo manatili sana sa puso.

Ngunit isip ko’y nangangamba sa aking mga nakita,
Henerasyon ko’y nagpabaya, nilamon ng sistema.
Pinagmula’y kinalimutan, mas nais ay banyaga,
Isip isinarado, nasyonalismo ay nawala,
Silang mga Pilipino na lang sa lahi ngunit hindi sa diwa.

Kung buhay lang ang mga ninuno, wag naman sana:
Baka saksakin tayo ni Rizal, gamit ang pluma,
Paulanan ni Luna, ng malulutong na mura.
Itakin ni Bonifacio, nang tayo’y magtanda,
Magagalit si Quezon sa di pag gamit ng wika.

Walang masama sa pagyakap sa ibang kultura,
Wag lang kakalimutan kung saan ka nagmula.
Ipahayag ang damdamin sa kahit anong paraan.
Ano mang kultura yan, sige ipagpatuloy mo yan,
Ang sakin lang, wag kang makakalimot sa nakaraan.

“Happy people build their inner world; unhappy people blame their outer world.” – T. Harv Eker

SONA nanaman, turo dito turo doon, naghahanap nanaman ng “mali” ang “masa” para may mairason sa kung ano ang kalagayan nila ngayon. Sa totoo lang hindi gobyerno, ekonomiya, crisis, at si Pangulong Duterte ang dapat pagtuunan natin ng sisi kung bakit ganito ang kalagayan natin ngayon. Kung mayroong dapat sisihin, tayo yon. Minsan sumagi ba sa isip natin ang mga tanong na: Ano ang naiambag ko sa ikauunlad ng bansa? Nag aaral ba ako ng mabuti? Nagttrabaho ba ako ng maayos? Nagbabayad ba ako ng buwis? Hindi ba ko nanlamang ng kapwa? Ano ang naitulong ko sa kapwa ko Pilipino? Pansin ko, sarili na lang ang iniisip ng karamihan ngayon, ibubunton ang sisi sa iba kung bakit ganito sila. Lagi tayong inuunahan ng tapang imbis ng pag iisip, ng reklamo imbis solusyon. Pansin nyo yung mga tao sa kalsada, sila yung mga galit, puno ng poot, problema na hindi kanila ay pinoproblema pa nila, hindi sila masaya. Samantalang yung iba ay nagsusumikap, nag aaral, nasa trabaho, nagbabasa, nagnenegosyo. Tahimik lang sila pero may impact sila sa bansa, sila yung nakakatulong at hindi nagrereklamo, sila ang masaya. Hayaan natin ang gobyerno ang tumrabaho sa problema ng bansa, trabaho nila yan. Mas matatalino pa sila sa atin kaya nariyan sila sa kanilang posisyon, mas alam nila ang solusyon.
