ANG KAHOY

by Manoy Doro

sa munting lupaing namana’t sinaka
napiling abang binhi kanyang ipinunla
pag-aalaga nito’y ‘di pagsasawaan
sa malamig na tubig didiligan
‘di hahayaang dahon’y malalanta
lahat man ng karangyaa’y mawawala
kung ito’y lalago’t mapapakinabangan
sa ngayo’y ‘di pa niya malalaman

kung tag-araw ay lilipas at ito’y lalaki na
sa mga sanga sisibol matatamis na mga bunga
gutom na mga kapatid tatawagin niya’t aanyayahan
na sumilong at mamitas sa punong pinaghirapan
kung panawaga’y mapapaunlakan saka niya malalaman
na ang abang binhing inalagaa’y mapapakinabangan
bagyo ma’y ‘di na iilagan, siya’y ‘di na takot mamatay
pagkat minimithi’y nakamit na’t hangari’y nagtagumpay
