Kuya, Kuya
Ako’y nadapa
Sa aking pagtakbo
Paghabol sa bolang di ko nasalo.

Aray, Aray
Tulungan mo ako,
Tuhod ko Kuya
Tila may dugo.

Adeng, Adeng
Huwag umiyak
Nandito na ako
Tutulong sayo ng tiyak.

Halika, halika
Kay Nanay tumahan
Lilinisin nya ang sugat
Hihipan ko naman.

Hayan, Hayan
Kapatid kong bunso
Band-aid sa sugat at halik sa noo
Galing sa Nanay gamot na totoo.

Ngumiti, Ngumiti
Wala na ang sakit
Hanapin ang bola
Maglalaro na tayo ulit.

Hinanap ko po sa Internet ang kahulugan ng "bato bato pik." Sa dami ng nakita ko, ang nakatawag pansin sa akin ay ang blog ninyo. Di ko pa ito lubusang nasusuri nang makita ko ang tulang "Kuya-kuya..." To say that its simple yet animated lines is touching is an understatement. I enjoy reading poems and "Kuya-kuya.." is one poem
only real poet could write.

Thank you very much JTE. I like poems too...especially in our language. Combined with excellent inspirations..you can never be wrong.

Good day to you!

I have two sons actually, and they give me endless inspirations. Many unwritten poems are rhyming in my head. I hope you don't mind if one day, I show you one or two.

"..Sa loob at labas ng bayan kong sawi.." I think that's the most timely tagalog lines that could be said about the country where we owe our dear language.

Have a great day!

Hi JTE! I guess we have common inspirations. Of course I don't mind at all... It will be a pleasure to read your poems.

"Sa loob at labas ng bayan kong sawi..." Good one! It somehows reflects the true laments of our generation. Punong puno ng maraming kahulugan.

Good day to you too!
