HOPE

Katulad ng iyong pangalan umasa ka sa pag-asa na
Maaari kang yakapin ng lantay na pag-ibig
Na baka sakaling mauwi ang mga palihim na tagpuan at suyuan
Sa isang matamis na pagtatapos
katulad ng lagi nating nababasa
Sa mga wakasang nobela at komiks

Katulad ng iyong pangalan, kumapit ka sa pag-aakalang mapagbigay
Ang dampi ng pag-asa, ang bulsa ng kapalaran sa mga katulad mong
Naghahanap, lumalaban para sa sariling espasyo at kahalagahan sa tila
Walang katuturang ikot ng mundo

Katulad ng iyong pangalan,
pilit kang nagpumilit na baka sana, siguro, maaari
at nagtatanong bakit naman kaya hindi?

Pero hindi mabait ang kapalaran sa madaming pagkakataon
At ang matapang mong pag-ibig ay hinusgahan at kinutya
Ang iyong pagtitimpi at sakripisyo ay hinamak at paulit-ulit na
Pinaglaruan sa artipisyal na pagsusuri ng midya at bulaang tsismisan
Ang iyong matiponong iniirog ay iniwan kang nag-iisa,
Itinakwil, pinagtulakan, inaalay sa mga buwitre at pinasinungalingan.

Ngayon, ikaw ay nag-iisa,
sadyang pinagtutulungan ng lahat
Pinagpipiyestahan ng lahat
Binansagan, minaliit at pinagtatawanan
Mismong tawing mong pag-asa ay tila nilayasan ka at pinagtaguan
Ikaw o Pag-asa, na ang tanging kasalanan ay umibig ng matapang.

Ngunit sino nga ba ang tunay na pokpok at kaladkarin?
Ikaw ba na ang tanging nais lamang ay lumigaya at mahalin?
Ikaw ba na nangahas na basagin ang mitos ng moralidad ng bugaw na lipunang ito
At sadyang ipagdiwang kung ano talaga ang pag-ibig
Labas sa mga nakagisnang depenisyon,
Parametro,
Limitasyon
At tradisyon?

O baka naman sila ang tunay na may bahid ng putik?
Ang mga duwag at uhugin na hindi kayang umalpas at
bumasag ng mga masisikip na konsepto ng pagmamahalan,
Ang mga nagba-banal-banalan at pagod na mga purista,
Ang milyon-milyong kaladkarin na mas may panahon pa
sa mga buhay ng artista at basketbolista kaysa sa kanilang tunay na panlipunang suliranin.

O Pag-asa, marami silang sinasabi,
Kay dami nilang mga gawi
May lason sa kanilang mga labi
Ngunit ‘di hamak, sa katotohanan
mas marami kang binabali…

Ok, 'tol!

Keep on blogging!

Violently disperse to the world your thoughts and sentiments! And know that we read, think about, and learn from them!

Cheers,
Bonn

Nakamamangha. Mapangahas talaga ang mensahe ng iyong mga titik, Emman.

I suggest you move your blog to blogger or wordpress. You deserve a much wider audience than friendster blog could offer.

Mabuhay ka,
Bonn
