It’s not every day someone writes a poem for you.
So when one of Ilocos Norte 1st District Representative Ria Fariñas’ supporters wrote one for her, the politiko was quite speechless.
In a Facebook post on Sunday, May 30, Fariñas said she was “extremely humbled and grateful” for the gesture.
“I went over this poem several times yesterday trying to figure out the best way to reply to such powerful words. Truth is, it leaves me speechless. I am not deserving but I am extremely humbled and grateful,” said Fariñas.
Written in the local language, the poem hails Fariñas for all the work that she has done for Ilocanos. But the congresswoman refused to take credit for everything.
“I don’t take credit for everything. I share this with each and every person in my team who also pour their heart and soul in supporting everything I want to achieve,” said Fariñas.
