Igorot!

Igorot



Gawked at in St. Louis,


Hailed in Bataan.


Begged at Botanical Garden,


Feasted in Congress.


Scarred in Batong Buhay and Lepanto,


Soothed in Banaue and Sagada.


Hoped for autonomy,


Fought over titles.


Voiced out my ideology,


Splintered by its mortars.


Prided in my ancestry,


Haunted by its ghost.

salamat ta nenbisita ka, etad. no sak-en nan damagem, yfontok nan inak, ikalinga pay nan amak. mamimiss ko met nan sagada ya. barbareng waday to tsansa ay maipasyarko nan pamilyak sidi... gawis ay agew mo!
