Your Promises

I loved how you inked your promise
As you give me hope everyday
Your way to touch my soul
Endearing your promise

I loved how you castle your promise
As you moved the mountains
Crossing the oceans bravery
Building your promise

I loved how you strive hard
For your promises to me
To make me happy each day
Acquiring your promises

You know what is hurt in your promises
You painted, because you promised it
Not because you wants to grant it
You want to prove your promises
Not because you love it
But to colored what you paint.

Dull in a picture,
Like your promises, no texture
Full of hidden pain
Because promises,,,
Are meant to be broken,
Not meant to be fulfilled.

Tanaga | Poem | Tagalog

Pagmasdan mong mataman
Iyong kapaligiran
Tingnan mo’t lumulubog
Sa kumunoy mong likha.

-mundo
Nakakabinging sigaw!
Ang umaalingawngaw
ng mga gutom at uhaw
ang hindi magkamayaw.

-manggagawa

Paraiso ay salat
Ngunit hitik sa yaman
Kanlungan ng mamayan
Tungo sa kamatayan

-libingan

Titig mong nakakalusaw
Puso ko’y sabik at uhaw
Pintig nito’y sinisigaw
Ikaw lamang araw-araw
Simbuyo ng damdamin
Huwag mong pairalin
Kawangis nito’y pighati
Luha’y ikubli sa ngiti

Tanaga | Tagalog |Poem

Sa aking pag-iisa,
Ako ay umaasa,
Na ika’y makapiling,
Bisig mo’y tanging hiling.
Samyo ng iyong halik
Sana ito’y ibalik
Alaala mo mahal
Ang lakas ko sa twina.
Minsan ko nang hiniling
Sa langit na ibalik
Ating pagmamahalan
at ako’y ‘yong balikan.
