Child (Anak)




Noong isilang ka sa mundong ito
Laking tuwa ng magulang mo
At ang kamay nila ang iyong ilaw

At ang nanay at tatay mo’y
Di malaman ang gagawin
Minamasdan pati pagtulog mo

At sa gabi’y napupuyat ang iyong nanay
Sa pagtimpla ng gatas mo

At sa umaga nama’y kalong ka
Ng iyong amang tuwang-tuwa sa iyo

Ngayon nga ay malaki ka na
Nais mo’y maging malaya
Di man sila payag, Walang magagawa

Ikaw nga ay biglang nagbago
Naging matigas ang iyong ulo
At ang payo nila’y sinuway mo

Di mo man lang inisip na
Ang kanilang ginagawa’y para sa iyo

Pagkat ang nais mo’y, Masunod ang layaw mo
Di mo sila pinapansin

Nagdaan pa ang mga araw
At ang landas mo’y naligaw
Ikaw ay nalulong sa masamang bisyo

At ang una mong nilapitan
Ang iyong inang lumuluha
At ang tanong,”anak, ba’t ka nagkaganyan”

At ang iyong mata’y biglang lumuha
ng di mo napapansin

Nagsisisi at sa isip mo’y
Nalaman mong ika’y nagkamali

The day you were born to this world
Your parents were full of joy
And their arms are your light

And your mother and father
Worries and don't know what to do
Watches over you even in your sleep

And in the night, a sleepless night, your mother
Is still awake to prepare your milk

And in the morning you are in the laps
Of your father, who is so joyful because of you

Now you are all grown up
You desire to be independent
Even if your parent forbid, they can't stop you

Isn't it you that changed a lot
Disobeyed them, remained stubborn
And you did not follow their advice

You did not took the time
To think about all the things they've done for you

For you desire, only what is pleasurable
You just ignored them

And the days has past
And you took a wrong turn in life
You are imprisoned in a horrible vice

And you first approach
Your dear crying mother
And asked "Child, what happened to you?"

And your eyes immediately shed tears
Without you noticing

Regretful and you realized
That you were at fault
