Palasyo ng Malakanyang (Malacañan Palace)

A palace confounding its mirth
Overhauls manifold abodes
Of hatred and despair that girth
The large quarry of precious lodes.
Concealed beneath the earthen roads.

A palace protecting its gem
Scarce a value, lest was refined
To gain certain values – thus stem
From countless faces which defined
From various views, freedom – confined.

Isang palasyong hinalo ang sigla
Pilit ayusin ang iba’t ibang hibla
Ng poot, galit, at desperasyon
Na bumabalot sa mga yaman ng panahon
Na itinago sa ilalim ng sibilisasyon.

Isang palasyong kumakalinga ng yaman
Noong magaspang, walang dulot, walang laman
Nilinis, yumaman, bagamat galing sa mukha
Ng mga taong nilarawan sa aspeto ng dukha
Na nakulong ang pagkukusa; karapatan ay nakuha.
