Ang Pasahero

Minsan nakakatakot iangat ang paningin, pagkat baka may makakita sa mga luhang naiipon.

Ingat baka may makatabi na makapansin

Bka may makaalam na ikaw palay sa lungkot nababaon.

Wag din masyadong damdamin ang himig ng musika,

baka dahil ditoy ikay mapaluha.

Baka bumalik ang sakit na nadama, baka maalala mo na ikay nilamon na.

**beginning of the end? or the start of a new beginning?**

“with rue my heart is laden”

Is it too late to admit

how long I have missed,

the days and nights we talked

and the secrets we spoke.

 

Is it so wrong to wish

to atleast have one last kiss

promise there’ll be no tear in my eye

As long as we get to say goodbye.

**Saying hi before 2018 ends**

Caveat

Caveat to the eyes that move with intention

  to the tongue that gives splendor to the air

  to the touch that only holds you in your glory

 and sadly fades when life’s been sour and gray.

Caveat to those trhat see you only in your light

 and let go of your hand when you need to be held tight.

Caveat to the smiles whose eyes dont share their joy

 caveat my dear friend for their heart doesn’t hold yours.

To the eyes whose heart might not be in the right place

Whose eyes that only sees your faults and find happiness in your disgrace

Caveat to their wretched souls…

      …Caveat

“Kinakapa ang sahig
mumunting kamay
naghahanap ng sasagip.”

Ilang araw na nga ba?
buwan at taon na pala
mula ng aking muling nakita
ang mga ngiti ng aking ina.
Si ama ay sumama na sa iba
alagaing kapatid iniwanan nila.

Kaya nga’t araw araw
sinisikap na lang mamuhay,
naguuling sa maghapon para lang mabuhay
kay toto at nene ako’y naghahanap buhay
upang gutom na kalamnan minsan din ay mapunan.

Ito ang aking kinasadlakan
ako na isang sampung taong gulang
kabataan ninakaw, inabuso ang kamalayan
pangarap na buhay di ko na ata matitikman.
