Taghoy ng OFW

Tulak

Ayaw kong makipagsapalaran
Dito sa malayong bayan
Tulak ng paghihirap,
Binulag pa ng pangarap
Inang bayan ang umiyak;

Pag-aaral kong natutuhan
Banyaga pa ang nakinabang
Ama't Ina ang nangalap,
Sa pag-unlad nitong anak;

Oo, mali ako, turing ng bayan
Silaw sa ginto at kamunduhan
Bulag na naglakbay,
Bilanggo ng mga pangako
Ama't Ina'y sinuway;

Nalason na ang isipan
Ngunit ito'y wala nang saysay,
Rehas na hangin ang kayakap
Narating mo ang tagumpay


__________
*mula sa panulat ng aking ama; halos isang dekadang nakipagsapalaran sa Middle East

hi sorry but we don't do exchange links. Thanks.

yeah right. maybe you're one of the team members. actually, it's rockey who did the first move, inviting me to have "exchange links", not me (Dec 12 post)

there were two portals there, so I asked him which of the two belongs to him. i left a message to both portals. maybe this is the other.

anyway, no big deal. thanks for dropping by. cheers.

To hugo:
Saudi Arabia. I forgot the specific place. If I am not mistaken, it's Jeddah.

to pinoytektek:
oo nga e. ayos talaga! luma na nga yung papel na pinagsulatan niya nito. nakita ko lang at tinago ko. matagal na niya naisulat yan e.

TO hydee:
I agree.

@porsche: sorry about the mishap I haven't been reading my comments. I was referring to videogame fan not gameops. sorry for the confusion.
