Queti qng paglautan, nung macasiguc mu ing macaducung pale,
mapait yung damdaman: sepulyut yula at simsam
ding alang camalit-malitan, ginapus yula
ring mala-anghel dang sagacgac, lalam
ning quislap-andap a yaslag qng dicutan—
caring iscuela't pipamyalungan dang
sasacluban na ning banua
ban queta,
masagad dong panabitan
ding uyat at butul dang ala mu mang caranasan—
damdaman yu sa ing papesus-pesus a calacsing;
isalacsac yung anggang binit
caring arung da't gulung-gulungan
ing bulu ning pale,
ing giligit nang pali ning marangle;
angga na quing y la—lastag at mepata catauan
malaus lang mangamate—e ra pa man araranasan ing mie

alang-alang mu
qng amanuan yung pangatigho.

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.
