CORONAng Tinik

CaptureCORONAng tinik
Bumaon ka sa aming anit.
Pangamba ang iyong hatid
Sa buhay namin ika’y balakid.

CORONAng tinik.
Kami’y naghihinagpis!
Sa takot ay alumpihit!

Heto kami’t nagkukulong lang sa silid,
Nangangambang kami’y iyong madagit,
Nandiyan ka lang kasi’t aali-aligid.

CORONAng tinik
Lubha kang malupit.
Wala kang kasing-bagsik!
Kay kamatayan ika’y nagpagamit,
Nagsilbi kang kanyang karit.

Oh mahabaging Amang nasa langit
Kami’y naninikluhod… tumatangis
Tanggalin ang CORONAng tinik
Na sa aming ulo’y nakasabit.

About M.A.D. LIGAYA

Teacher-Writer M, A, and D are the initials of my two first names (Massuline and Antonio) and my mother's family name (Dupaya). Ligaya (a Filipino word which means happiness in English) is my family name. MAD is actually one of my nicknames aside from Tony and Ching. My full name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question "Why do you write?" I don't write for material 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 should I get those 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. My educational philosophy - "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!
