Plagiarized Poem

Update: December 9, 2008 – The two plagiarized poems had been deleted. Thanks to the site administrator/owner of for doing me a favor. I really appreciate it. Thank you also to all who commented.

This is the second time I am posting about my poems being plagiarized. For the past few days, I’ve been collecting screenshots of different sites where you can see my plagiarized poems. I will be posting them in the coming days.

First in the list is my Saying Goodbye poem. Somebody copied the poem, and what’s worst, she’s claiming it’s hers. She even has the nerve to tell me she made the poem long time ago before I was born, that I was the one who took it from her because she has many poems in many places and that she has awards to prove it. Dream on, libre lang yan.

Duh! I don’t care if she is the best poet around or whatever. I also have lots of awards diba Nilo? haha, tingnan sa mga tags and awards category, nyek!

Seriously, I was googling my poem and was surprised to see 5 or more copycats. The other ‘offenders’ copied my poem as is, but didn’t bother to mention where they copied it from. But this person who submitted her poems in plagiarized my Saying Goodbye poem. She copied it, changed the title, and now claim it’s hers, ako pa ang pinapalabas na nangopya, ang kapal!

I wrote Saying Goodbye on March 26, 1995 when I was 18 years old. Huwag nyo ng itanong kung bakit ko isinulat yan, haha!

She submitted the poem on July 8, 2008 with the title “I could see we were on the edge”. But as you can see it’s more than 90% plagiarized from my poem Saying Goodbye. The underlined words are her own, while the underlined you’re is my grammatical error, which I then corrected to your in my poem.

I already sent email to but haven’t received any reply from them. πŸ™

Plagiarized poem

I commented on the page and said, I am glad she liked my poem. When I visited the site after few days, I saw there’s no reply so I commented again. But this time, I said “This is my poem…You copied it from my site and you just changed the title… I’m glad that you like it.”


Plagiarized poem - comments

I was expecting that she would admit she copied my poem, but she did not. Talagang pinapanindigan nya na sa kanya yun, haha! So I commented again, but she or somebody else deleted it today. I should have made a screen capture last night when I was still able to read my last comment.

I don’t exactly remember what I said except that I mentioned that LYING LIPS ARE ABOMINATION TO THE LORD – Proverbs 12:22; and A RIGHTEOUS MAN HATETH LYING – Proverbs 13:5.

I am not being self-righteous here, I am as evil as whoever and I also lied many times before but I do NOT claim somebody else’s work!

I am not bothered much by those people who copied my poems directly and not adding me as the author. But I am extremely offended that some people copy my poems and put their names on them. πŸ™

December 3, 2008 Update. I just want to add this screenshot of the same poem, but this time it has different title, I Could See We Won’t Last Long. Of course, same plagiarist pa rin, Carmen Santiago!

    • Thanks Willa. I was playing nice with her nga at first pero when she claimed it’s her poem, aba iba na ito. When I told her she’s lying, she deleted my comment. Here, I can say whatever I want to tell her, and she has no power to delete it haha… And yes, you’re right, Carmen Santiago if that’s her real name is a liar and a plagiarist!

  3. Writing poems is quite a fascinating thing. You get healed tapos may collection ka pa:D

    But this thing.. plagiarism, is nothing new. Get over it πŸ˜€
    You are a poet and no one can take that from you.

    Sana lang, mamaga ang kamay ng magnanakaw na un hihihihi.

    Don’t worry, once the owner of the site reads your message, they will make actions at once or else they get bugged by your fans. US bwahahaha

    • But I can’t get over it. haha…..

      Thanks Camper, you’re also a poet, have you checked if you’ve been plagiarized na rin? Kasi 2-3 poems in my submitted poems category may copy na rin, ayun hindi rin nilagay name nung author. πŸ™

      Amor´s last blog post..Plagiarized Poem

      • Naranasan ko na siya.The funny thing is, I placed in my previous website a note: You may use them in your personal blog… But it’s never a note giving a permission na angkinin niya ang poem ko. Happened 5 times. Yung 4 inalis sa website. Yung isa, di ko na alam kung ano ang nangyari. Nag-email nga ako sa may-ari ng site.. Sabi ko I can trace your hosting provider and ask them to shut down his site because of plagiarm kasi mahigpit ang providers pagdating sa ganyan ::D
