MANALANGIN

girl-praying1Buksan ang bintana’t, kurtina’y hawiin
Pagsikat ng araw iyong salubungin
Kapag dumampi na ang sariwang hangin
Pumikit ka na’t umusal ng panalangin.

Ibulong sa hangin ang iyong hiling
At manalig sanang ikaw ay didinggin.
Pasasalamat sa Kanya’y iparating
Pagpapatawad Niya’y iyong hilingin.

Ibulalas sa hangin, iyong hinaing
Ipanalanging ito’y Kanyang lusawin.
Dusa’t kabiguan mo’y ibuga sa hangin
Sa iyong isipa’y burahi’t limutin.

Taimtim sanang manalangin sa Kanya
Kung ika’y naligaw, manumbalik ka na
Muli mong balikan ang tahanan Niya
Kung ikaw ay kakatok,  pagbubuksan ka.

Matuto ka sanang tumawag sa Kanya
Nang ika’y puspusin ng saya’t pag-asa
Sa Kanya’y sumandal, manampalataya
Bubukal sa balon mo’y maraming biyaya.

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!
