Bata… Bata… Saan Ka Ginawa?

mother and sonInay… si kuya ay mainit ang ulo
Hayun sa kuwarto nagmamarakulyo
Barkada n’ya kasi siya’y niloloko
Bakit kasi pangalan niya’y Anito?

“Kasi anak nagdate kami ng tatay n’yo
Doon namin nabuo iyang kuya mo.”
“Ah… eh… alam ko na kung bakit si diko
Ang ipinangalan n’yo sa kanya’y Sogo.”

“Tama! Napakatalino mo Luneta,
Mabuti na lang sa akin ka nagmana.”
“Ay inay, hayan, si bunso po’y gising na.”
“Oh FX! Halika nga, hug mo ang mama!”

Nang mag-ring ang phone sinagot ni Luneta.
“Inay, si ate nasa kabilang linya.”
“Akin na! Hello… Sofa… aba’y gabi na!
Hala… uwi! Si Rooftop, kasama mo ba?

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!
