BOLAWAN KO
Faishanie P. Macalantong

Miyokit sa lagid o taginepen
Ino so mga torogan piphandaraan?
Ba siran oto miyodas?
So gawi-gawii a di kalilanga
A pelawiin o maginged
A di phapakaradiyaan, anda den?
So mga siringan a di nggiginawa-i
Anda siran miyaribon?

Miyonot siran sa kiyaombi
O inged a pilombayan
A pindiromasayan o mga lokes
So mga lokes a siranoto mithalimbagak
Poon bo ko tindeg iran ko inged a bolawan
Ka ron iran piyakathaman so
Mori-pori a napas iran.

Ini pamagoyag so mga ikaritan
Sa mga ayaw a darpa
Na myarasay so bago, so badan, ago so pikir
Na da ba a gawii a ba di mapipikir so giyanatan
A inged a pilombayan
A madenggaw a dedempasan sa lekep
Da rimbang iyan.

Inged aken a pilombayan?
Ino ngka ini kapesinagadi?
Anda ka den? Inao, miyada ka den?
Daden sagad sa pikir aken
O ba ngka ini mambetad
Isa ka diyap na miyaribon ka den
A inged a pakatatayaan.
inged aken a matanos
A tihaya o puso aken
Aya bo a myalamba rekami
Na so katatadmi ami ko kalano ka.
