Kay Hirap Maging Ofw

Overseas Filipino Worker
Kay gandang pakinggan
Karamihan pag tayo'y nasa abroad
Ang alam nila'y tayo'y maraming pera.

Pero hindi aking mga kababayan
Anong hirap kaya
Kailangan din namin
Magtipid ng ulam at meryenda
At mga kagamitan na kailangang bilhin
Para lamang may maipadala.

Imbis na fried chicken isda na lamang ang aming ulam
Kung minsan nga maraming mga OFW
Ang namiminwit sa dagat para lamang may libre na
pagkain.

Kay hirap maging OFW
mawawalay ka sa iyong pamilya
Ilang taon ang iyong kontrata para
Makabalik ka sa Pilipinas.

Kung minsan pa
Maraming mga pamilya
Ang nawawasak dahil pagdating
nila sa kanilang bahay.

Iba na pala ang kinakasama ni Mr. / Mrs.
Kay hirap talaga maging OFW
Mga anak mo'y napapalayo sa yo
Dahil wala sa iyong ang naggagabay
Nalulon sila sa masamang bisyo.

Sonnet 18 is the best known and most well-loved of all 154 sonnets. It is also one of the most straightforward in language and intent. The stability of love and its power to immortalize the subject of the poet's verse is the theme.
The poet starts the praise of his dear friend without ostentation, but he slowly builds the image of his friend into that of a perfect being. His friend is first compared to summer in the octave, but, at the start of the third quatrain, he is summer, and thus, he has metamorphosed into the standard by which true beauty can and should be judged. The poet's only answer to such profound joy and beauty is to ensure that his friend be forever in human memory, saved from the oblivion that accompanies death. He achieves this through his verse, believing that, as history writes itself, his friend will become one with time. The final couplet reaffirms the poet's hope that as long as there is breath in mankind, his poetry too will live on, and ensure the immortality of his muse. [Shakespeare, William. Sonnet 18. Ed. Amanda Mabillard. Shakespeare Online.12 Nov.2008]
It is almost universally accepted by scholars that the poet's love interest is a young man in sonnets 1-126. Sonnets 18-25 are often discussed as a group, as they all focus on the poet's affection for his friend.
