Isa sa mga salitang napag-aralan natin sa wikang


Pilipino ay ang salitang NABANSOT. GOOD LUCK!!!
Kapang ang isang bagay daw ay dapat pang lumaki
ngunit ito'y tumigil na sa paglaki, ang bagay na ito raw ay
NABANSOT. Marami raw uri ng pagkabansot ngunit ay
pinakamalungkot na uri raw ay ang pagkabansot ng
isipan, ng puso at ng diwa.
Ang panahon ng kabataan ay panahon ng
paglaki, ngunit ang ating paglaki ay kailangang paglaki, at
pag-unlad ng ating buong katauhan, hindi lamang ng
ating sukat at timbang. Kung ga-poste man ang ating taas
at ga-pison man ang ating bigat ngunit kung ang pag-iisip
naman nati'y ga-kulisap lamang kay pangit na
kabansutan. Kung tumangkad man tayong tangkad-
kawayan at bumilog man tayong bilog-tapayan, ngunit
kung tayo nama'y tulad ni "bondying" ay di
mapagkatiwalaan-anong laking kakulangan. Kung
magkakatawan tayong katawang "Tarzan" at mapatalas
ang ating isipang sintalas ng kay Rizal, ngunit kung ang
ating kalooban nama'y itim na duwende ng kasamaan-
anong kapinsalaan para sa kinabukasan.
Kinabukasan, kabataan, tayo raw ang pag-asa ng
Inang Bayan. Tayo raw ang maghahatid sa kanya sa
langit ng kasaganaan at karangalan o hihils sa kanya sa
putik ng kahirapan at kahihiyan. Ang panahon ng pagkilos
ay ngayon, hindi bukas, hindi sa isang taon. Araw-araw
ay tumutuwid tayong palangit or bumabaluktod tayong
paputik. Tamang-tama ang sabi ng ating mga ninunong
