Love’s indeed a roller coaster,
Treacherous switchback it bestrides.
It did throw you up and under,
You grinned and cried yet loved the ride.

Just ride again when love rolls down,
Get ready for the twists and turns.
Buckle up in delight be drowned,
Before downwards the ride returns.

Hold still…roll on with the flow
Expect the twizzles and the twines.
Just sit tight don’t ever let go
Whirl with the twirls and you’ll be fine


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 or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. 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!
