Pagbigyan Ang Hiling

CaptureMula bilibid, isang preso’y tumakas
Hating-gabi noon nang siya’y naglakad
Mapapasok na bahay pilit naghanap
Nang ng pera’t damit siya’y makadekwat.

Nakatagpo siya isang gate na bukas
Itinulak niya ito’t pumasok siyang kagyat
Bukas ding pintua’y kanyang itinulak
At sinimulan n’ya ang pangungulimbat.

At nang ang kuwarto ay kanyang binuksan
Mag-asawang nag-aano’y nagulantang.
“Walang sisigaw!” Ang banta ng kawatan.
At ang mag-asawa’y kanyang tinalian.

Ang lalaki’y masyadong kinakabahan
Dorobo kasi’y siya’y tinititigan
At matapos na babae’y saglit lapitan
Iniwan sila’t banyo’y pinuntahan

“Honey halatang ikaw ay kanyang tipo
Nilapitan ka’t humalik pa sa iyo.
Kaya nga’t nang manatiling buhay tayo
Pakiusap ko’y pagbigyan mo ang loko.”

“Hindi niya ako hinalikan darling.
Bagkus sa akin ay meron siyang inamin
Tinanong din kung meron tayong Vaseline
Kako’y doon sa banyo’y kanyang kuhanin.”

“Vaseline? Saan niya ‘yon gagamitin?”
“Darling… Siya daw kasi ay isang bading
At para tayo’y hindi niya patayin
Pagbigyan mo siya sa balak niyang gawin.”

About HARDPEN

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!
