Ina’y nabagabag nang anak tumangis.
“Aking anak bakit ka naghihinagpis?”
“Sorry po… batid kong kayo’y magagalit
Ako’y nagkasala… ako po ay buntis.”

“Okay lang yan anak, h’wag mong problemahin.”
“Ganun inay… ‘di n’yo ako sasampalin?
Wala lang po? ‘di n’yo na tatanungin
Kung sino ba ang nakabuntis sa akin.”

Kinurot ng ina ang anak sa singit.
“Aray naman inay… kurot n’yo masakit.”
“Huwag nang uliting pangaraping mabuntis
Kasi Roberto wala ka namang matris.”



Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories, and essays, when I do research, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. I don't write for cash incentives, "likes," and "praises." I would be thankful if I'll have them but the happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my real rewards. Is teaching difficult? No! When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
