MINSA’Y SABIK ANG PUSO SA MANGGA

-

Ni Jose Maria Sison
March 30, 1994

Minsa’y sabik ang puso
Sa mangga kung saan ang mansanas
Sa orkidya kung saan ang tulipa
Sa init kung saan maginaw
Sa mabundok na kapuluan
Kung saan ang patag.

Malayo sa tahanan
At daloy ng kaibiga”t kaanak
Ilang at ngayo”y gamay
Na mga bagay at lugar nang-uudyok
Ng kirot sa patid na mga ugnay,
Sa mga kabiguandahil sa antala’t kaligta.

Direk dialing, fax mashin
Komputer disk at video kaset
At mga bisitang lulan ng dyet
Di-kayang paglapitin
Ang inensayong mga pamalas
At di-inensayong buhay sa tahanan.

May mga kaliga at kaibigan
Na nakakaaya sa dinayong lupa
Subalit may sarili silang mga gawi,
Sariling mga buhay
Na lampas sa pagkaunawa
At pakialam ng dayuhan.

Yaong mga nais magkait sa destierro
Ng tahanan, kaibiga’t kaanak,
Ng buhay, katawan at kalayaan
Ang pinakamaingay na mangutya sa kanya
Na lulutanglutang daw sa dagat,
Hugot mula sa kanyang lupa.

Patuloy ang may-layuning destierro
Sa paglaban para sa inangbayan
Sa mga nagpalayas sa kanya,
Ang mga mapagsamanatala sa bayan,
At tiyak niyang siya’y nananahanan
Sa sariling bayan at sa daigdigan.

Decision on the petition for proscription against the CPP-NPA as terrorist organizations filed by the DOJ on 21 Feb 2018 with the RTC branch...

The Program of the CPP which is also synonymous with “Plan of Action”, can be construed as the respondent organizations’ “purpose for being,” or the very reasons for its establishment. A perusal of the foregoing Program, consisting of lofty ideals readily shows that the CPP-NPA is organized or exists, not for the purpose engaging in terrorism.
