Pagmamahal Ng Nakapag-aral at Matalino (In Tagalog Language)



Nakabuntis, umiyak

habang siya'y nagsasabing,

"Ano'ng gagawin...?"

Reedited on 12.18.2019 02:21:  I simply had added to the hashtags the following words/phrases:  Tagalog, Tagalog Poetry, Tagalog poem;

Reedited on 12.18.2019 (typographical/structural emendation of "clearer (" supplanted for "clearer", the omission of a parenthesis because of the doubling of that parenthesis);

Reedited/revised/emended/reupdated on 12.17.2019 (I've just added unto this Author's Notes/Comments and paraphrased it as I went, including the Legal Disclaimer above); 12.13.2019 (please see the consequent edits below) & 12.14.2019:  (a subsequent reedition/revision/emendation due to noticing a misspelled/mistyped "relat", upon my usual incidental reviews of my poems, then supplanting for "relate" in this Author's notes/comments.  Meanwhile, the first reedition was just about an incorrect Tagalog phrase, "Anong gagawin...", which have been supplanted for "Ano'ng gagawin...?", to make the meaning clearer & or to clearly relate what I was meaning to say with the last line in the verse—yet to exact what it is not necessarily its signification).  Texts affect meaning so I have to change it the way that I did for clarity.  Thank you for reading on.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Reedited 12.04.2019 (some sentence/paragraph emendations which included misspelling corrections & misidentified/misused words); 11.23.2019 (I have supplanted the previous commentary emendation); 09.04.2019:


that spur, was seemingly a corresponding familiar song (i.e., either something out of a Carpenter's song or its title), I simply then came to the conclusion that it was indeed an American/English idiomatic expression that relates to its real connotation (the expression, versus the Carpenter song title—contrastingly—where it was actually derived from, & whose real lexical meaning was what I also have meant to relay).  But not to outright convey the distinctively intended (versus an oblique intention) meaning.  Thank you for reading on.
