Being Pinoy

A Filipino
Is like Malus Pumila
Cutting it
Into halves
You’ll find two stars, glowing
For the elegance of its tree, cheerfully
Piping wind songs
To charm
Your daily existence

New Year

Usad na libot
San bituon sa langit;
Pitbong nagputok


Isang pag-ikot
Ng talang nasa langit;
Kanyo'y sumabog


One revolution
Of a star in the night sky;
Bamboo cannon bursts

IGGUROT native filipino indian

teeming with pride,
humble and its peen.
sometimes only wearing underwear.
culture so rare.
dancing on there own line of drumbeats, 
minding there own a folk music.
so keen on their own particular heritage of kin,
made u of their own ideas and dreams.

                                           Sacrificing loneliness in other country
                                                        For family’s welfare
                                             Considered as heroes by Filipinos

(Experimenting a "Haiku")

Short Filipino poem by Jane Doe| Details |

In Filipino

Sinubukan kitang tikisin,
Sadyang inaral ko kung paano ka saktan.
Pero ikaw ay siyang indulhensiya at indulhente
At ako ay sabik, sakim, at yamot sa katinuan.

Kaya't sa huli, ganoon paman din ang kalabasan;
Inuusig mo ako, at ako, ginugusto ko naman.
Pananaigin at papahintulutang lasunin mo
Ang dugo, utak, pananaw, at puso ko.

Pretty butterflies soaring
Tiny seedlings are growing
Red roses on trellis climbing
Summer day hot weather bring.

Short Filipino poem by Alon Calinao Dy| Details |

Rise Again, Manny

Rise, Manny, rise!
Be proud and be brave.
You're still my boxing hero,
A pride to every Filipino.

Rise, Manny, rise!
Hold your head high.
The world is talking about you,
No wonder people still love you.

Rise, Manny, rise! 
Make another fight if you want.
But please, be careful next time.
Don't let a lucky punch knocks you out.

Rise, Manny, rise! 
Those fools can say whatever...
And in this battle of life,
"Never Say Never."

Rise again, Manny!

Matter Most

I'm a real Filipino 
but something change on me 
The unique color of my skin 
That every foreign aim 
Was getting darker 
I'm a real girl 
but my body look not 
My body got a muscle 
In picking heavy things 
Just to have money for foods 
This changes of my body 
Cause of my work 
Under the heat of the sun 
Just to have strength 
Tomorrow to survive 
Whatever changes I have 
Didn't matter to me 
What important now 
I can eat everyday 
To face the coming day.

Short Filipino poem by kabuteng P.iNk k.| Details |


There she waits by her window,
gazing up at the velveteen summer sky,
searching for her favorite bituin,

Only the kuliglig replies—
The quintessential tune of summer. 

Despite herself, she smiles,
happy with the fact that 
the sound fills the night air,
drowning out her own thoughts.

Anything is better than silence.


Filipino-English translation

kuliglig—cicada, or can also be crickets here

Hero's Life

J-une nineteenth, eighteen sixty-one, 
O-ne Filipino was born; 
S-un had begun to shine; 
E-vening yielded to the morn. 

P-hilippine national hero's life 
R-emains in the people's heart; 
O-ur freedom is enjoyed 
T-ill the world falls apart. 
A-n instrument he used 
C-ompleting his goal was pen; 
I-t made a big difference 
O-n the country neath the heaven. 

R-emembering his birthdate 
I-s forgetting the strife; 
Z-one of nationalism 
A-ims to share the hero's

Envoy Extraordinary

E-nvoy extraordinary
D-oes what's best for the nation; 
U-nder the Lord God's guidance, 
A-id is brought to fruition.
R-epresentative of the country, 
D-ealings are made with another; 
O-verseas Filipino workers will truly be in proper order.

M-inister plenipotentiary
A-ccredited to alien government
N-aturally ranks between
A-mbassador and minister resident.
L-egate is sent as messenger to meet the task of an emissary; 
O-fficial agent to accomplish the job of envoy extraordinary.
