Tiong, Gilbert Charles K.

If the ties you use at home
Become weak and tend to break,
You should be the one to mend
The one to restore their strength

This ambahan has made use of a common symbolism. The ties in the
first line represents the relationship between husband and wife. When
this relationship would tend to get weak and husband and wife would
tend to argue a lot, either the husband or wife should try and fix this
relationship. After which the bond between them that was previously
weak would now be strong and relentless. Even without knowing the
theme of the ambahan as marriage, the thought would still be there,
but some may think of family concept instead of a marriage one.
