ADWANG POEMA: QUING BIE ITI, "SISPAYR"
QUING BIE ITI
Mequipila cu.
Masalese ing cusad.
Metung yang direchu,
macabang pila da reng tawu.

Quitnan que
ing matuang babaying
atsu qng arapan cu:
Nanu pu ing atin ot maqui-pila tamu?

Maquipila tamu
ban caybat na niti maquipila tang pasibayu.


Melingo cu. Apiyisip cu, nung macanyan pala
mumulangan ta nya ing sarili tamu.

Sinabi cu caya:
Ima, lual nacu mu pu.

Linawe nacung maratna—
Agyang deng lulual queti, maquipila la naman, itu.
"SISPAYR"
Macanyan na pin man, calupa da reng minuna caya,
mengalsut mu ibat qng alimpuyu na ing mangayumung salita:

"Culayan ta yang maputi ing macacadcad a dulum. Pag-imbutang ayampat
ing tutularing daya caring quecatang sugat. Micawul-cawul, misabi-sabi
ban mitabi, mapawi ing asuc ning cagutgutan caring danggut da ring baril."


Malapit qng gabun a queyang tatalacaran, quing metung a cutcutan,
mipamisan lang ginuliac ding mengamate caual; mequi-agnan
qng pait dang tagulele ring anacpauas a mibulang, mesayang-bie
caring cabunducan—papaypayan na na ngeni ning dicut-deuagan
a tinubu ban tacpan no reng cutcutan dang alang lagyu, alang sucat piquilanlan:

"Nung tinulid yu sana, canita pa, ing quecong camalyan, ing baluctut yung
patacaran, malwat ta na sanang payapa, malwat na sanang mepupus ing sabla."

About the author. Oliver Carlos was born and grew up in the town of San Luis, Pampanga. He studied AB Political Science at the University of the East in Manila, but did not manage to finish it, not because of some difficulties, but rather because of his love of his country. He was kicked out of school because he spent most of his time in the streets with other nationalist youths, fighting against the rotten political system. He chose to stay in other people's houses and studied in the hinterlands with the poor farmers. In doing so, he met his future better half and companion in life. Now, he is one of the OFWs, trying his luck in foreign places to make both ends meet and to get his family out of poverty. Amidst all this, he keeps on looking back at his beloved country, especially his province, Pampanga.
