Because of A Child

Dahil sa Isang Bata


Because of a child


Young person how are you created

That’s the question from the body

Why can’t you join their repartee?

Your opinion is often unnoticed, discarded


You seem naïve at their perusal

So you’re often left in your state, dismal

Even though you’re so exceptional

You can never be their equal


So you’re just sitting at your little corner

Not allowed to say, you just hover

The milk is oozing, waiting to cover

Because you want to tell, not to waver…


You want your voice to be heard

In your ability you don’t want to retreat

Even if you’re a child yet

you got talents to be considered


you’re the shining star that gives light

In the heart that only feels delight

Emotions that find solace in its plight

For sure he doesn’t want to give up the fight


Yes, surely you’re just a kiddo

The heart and mind are in a wino

Feelings are pure and true

So full of love in a bimbo


You’re a genial prodigy

In the true essence of humility

You even promote simplicity

In all manner, above all your sincerity


Because of a moppet

Valuing others you’ll become an expert

Your life becomes easy

Your life will be trouble free


You are a great exemplary

Lessons in life will not go a nary

Your existence will not be empty

Worthlessness will surely be thrown away…


Dahil sa Isang Bata


Bata bata paano ka ginawa

Iyan ang tanong ng madla

Bakit hindi ka makasali sa usapang matanda

Opinyon mo laging binalewala


Sa tingin nila ikaw ay inosente pa

Kaya hindi ka pinapansin nila

Kahit sobrang talino mo na

Hindi ka pa rin makalamang sa kanila


Kaya ika’y nakaupo sa isang tabi

Wala man lang pwedeng isabi

Kahit naguumapaw ang gatas sa labi

Dahil gusto mong ihabi


Nais mong mong ika’y marinig

Sa kakayahan ayaw mong padaig


Dahil ika’y bata man

may sarili kang kakayahan


ikaw ang siyang nagbibigay aliw

Sa puso naging kagiliw giliw

Damdaming hindi magmamaliw

Tiyak hindi siya bibitiw


Oo nga’t musmos ka pa

Puso’t isip ay hilaw na

Damdamin nama’y mapagkalinga

Mapagmahal kang talaga


Ikaw ang nagtuturo

Magpakumbaba ng taos puso

Kasimplehan sa lahat ng bagay

Iyong iwinagayway


Dahil sa isang bata

Lalawak ang iyong pang unawa


Buhay mo’y gagaan

Mawawala iyong pinapasan


Dapat kang tularan

Marami ring aral na matutunan

Buhay mo’y kanyang punan

Kahungkagan kayang sidlan…

      Enjoyed your poetry, Raciniwa, and really had to laugh at the first picture where the baby is thinking he didn't really want to grow up. You like Guns'n'roses! So do I! Back in the sixties while in the navy I visited the Philipines twice. I believe Cebu is one of the islands. And the rock group "Journey" seems like a man from the Philipines became the new lead singer. I have seen him sing one time during the NBC morning show. Thank you for the follow!

      In this poem child is very important for a one family.

      Children can wipe the stress of their beloved parents.Eventhough children are very naughty they can wipe the anger,sadness,and stress of a parents.To all parents that abuses their children think that every children gave god to love and care.parents should give importance to their children because they are the one who complete a one happy family...

      Oh this is so sweet raciniwa! I loved how you did the two versions, one in your own language (I assume) and the translation into English, very clever.
