Images from Shutterstock.com To The Philippine Youth Hold high your faultless brow,
Filipino youth, on this day grand!
Shine forth resplendent now,
In gallant glory stand,
Handsome home of my motherland!

Radiant Genius, arise!
Make thy noblest dreams his own;
Catch his mind in keen surprise;
Swifter than by tempest blown
Sweep him up to glory's throne!

Descend, O youth, -- the lovely light
Of art and science in your train; --
On life's arena, smite
And break the heavy chain
Where long your pinioned poetry hath lain. Behold how, on this ardent zone
Where shadows dwell, the Spaniard's hand,
So wise and pious grown,
Confers a garland grand
Upon the youth of our fair Indian land!

O you, who now aspiring rise
On fancy's gifted wings
From Mount Olympus to the skies,
While Poetry more sweetly sings
Than any sweetness nectar ever brings.

To the Filipino Youth A La Javentud Filipina In April, 1877, Rizal, then nearly sixteen, matriculated in the University of Santo Tomas as a medical student.

He submitted a poem for the poetry contest which had been organized for Filipinos by the Manila Lyceum of Art and Literature, and though he was but eighteen years of age (1879), he won the first prize, a silver pen.

This poem, one of his most famous and most difficult to translate, was dedicated to the Filipino Youth.
To The Philippine Youth Interpretation This poem can be considered as Rizal's first testimony of his nationalism and the importance of education.

In this literary piece, he clearly referred to the Philippines as his motherland, “Mi Patria”, Rizal stressed in the poem relates to the role of the youth in nation building.

From the poem, he called the youth, "The fair hope of the motherland (La Bella Esperanza de la Patria Mia).
Interpretation Rizal challenges the youth through this poem to do three things:
to cultivate their talents in the arts;
to develop their knowledge of the sciences; and
to look forward and break their chain of bondage.
