Kinabuhi/ Life

Inspired by Bogz Jamorabon…

with his comment “KINABUHI” to an earlier blog about NDTC.

Kinabuhi/ Life

(Hiligaynon and English and versions)

Ni Apolinario Villalobos

Ang kinabuhi, daw sapa, nagailig

Kon padulhog gani, ini madasig

Ang katinong, ginabuka sang bato

Kag labusaw sang mga isda kag tawo.

Amo man ina ang tawo sa kalibutan

Nagalakat sa dalan nga indi matapan

Damo matapakan, mga buho kag tunok

May mga hilit-hilit pa nga makahaladlok!

Life is like a stream that flows –

Fast, if the terrain tilts or slopes

Boulders break its tranquil course

But not easing a bit its resolute force.

Man, a mere dot in the universe

Treads potholed paths – all diverse

Some are thorny, some yet, are stony

With dark corners, foreboding and dreary!
