Sa Aking Mga Kabata by Nordenx Sa Aking Mga Kabata by Nordenx
This is Dr. Jose Rizal's classic poem "Sa Aking Mga Kabata" written in Baybayin. A wonderful poem about asking a generation to embrace their own native language - originally written in Tagalog.

Sa Aking Mga Kabata

Kapagka ang baya'y sadyang umiibig
Sa kanyang salitang kaloob ng langit,
Sanglang kalayaan nasa ring masapit
Katulad ng ibong nasa himpapawid.

Pagka't ang salita'y isang kahatulan
Sa bayan, sa nayo't mga kaharian,
At ang isang tao'y katulad, kabagay
Ng alin mang likha noong kalayaan.

Ang hindi magmahal sa kanyang salita
Mahigit sa hayop at malansang isda,
Kaya ang marapat pagyamaning kusa
Na tulad sa inang tunay na nagpala.

Ang wikang Tagalog tulad din sa Latin
Sa Ingles, Kastila at salitang anghel,
Sapagka't ang Poong maalam tumingin
Ang siyang naggawad, nagbigay sa atin.

Ang salita nati'y huwad din sa iba
Na may alfabeto at sariling letra,
Na kaya nawala'y dinatnan ng sigwa
Ang lunday sa lawa noong dakong una.

Thank you. It is old Tagalog which is where the Philippine National Language (Filipino) is based upon. The script is called "Baybayin" and it is the ancient writing system used by the indigenous people of the pre-Hispanic archipelago that we now call The Philippine Islands.
