Bayan Ko (My Country) - Poem by José Corazón de Jesús

Ang bayan kong Pilipinas
Lupain ng ginto't bulaklak
Pag-ibig na sa kanyang palad
Nag-alay ng ganda't dilag.


At sa kanyang yumi at ganda
Dayuhan ay nahalina
Bayan ko, binihag ka
Nasadlak sa dusa.


Ibon mang may layang lumipad
kulungin mo at umiiyak
Bayan pa kayang sakdal dilag
Ang di magnasang makaalpas!


Pilipinas kong minumutya
Pugad ng luha ko't dalita
Aking adhika,
Makita kang sakdal laya.

    this is actually a protest song during the martial law years and lately has become the signature song in protest actions. it basically expresses love of country and though i only learned of the author and his works during my school days i appreciated them very well. (Report) Reply
