KAPUSO, KAPAMILYA, KAAGAPAY

by Ethiel Roxas, AA Parang telanobela ang buhay ngayon,Magkahalong takot at lungkot, pangamba at poot.Marami ang umaasang pinto ay agad na mabubuksan,Upang bumalik sa dati ang buhay na nakagisnan. Isyung panlipunan wala ng katapusan,Kahirapan, sigalot at boses ng tao’y niyuyurakan.Pati ang simbahang tanging pahingahan ng tanan,Ngayon ay tinutuligsa, parang wala ng kabuluhan. Kapuso ka ba...

Kamusta Ka?

by Jenalyn Umpad Kumusta ka? Kapag tinatanong natin ito sa ating kausap, ang nasa isip natin sila, alam natin na sila ang sentro ng pag-uusap na ito, hayaan nating ikwento nila ang nasa puso nila, ang kwentuhang ito ay para sa kanya, hindi para sa iyo.Pero minsan ang salitang ito ay tagong sigaw na "kumustahin-mo-naman-ako"...

Alaala

by Cielo Sarno Nabalot ng dilim, may sikat man ng araw.Maalab kong puso, nilamon ng ginaw.Bakal na kasuotan, sa takot ay nalusaw.Pangakong paghayo, ‘di maaninag, ‘di matanaw. Diwa ko’y nalunod sa hapdi ng Iyong paglisan.Nananaghoy ang pusong balot sa kalungkutan.Saysay ng aking Pagsunod naglaho ang kahulugan.Galak ng alala Mo’y tinangay ng kamatayan. Tumalikod sa Iyo,...

Siklo

by Francis Miguel Panday Sa labing-apat na buwanna hindi pagbuhos ng ulan,unti-unting nagbubuwag-buwagmga pira-piraso ng lupang naduwag. Gabi noon, nang muling magparamdam;nagbadyang muling makialam,magdulot ng bagong pakiramdamitong ulan na naglaho nang walang paalam. Mga patak na noo’y pigil na pigil,ngayo’y handang maningil.Kahit anong iwas ang gawinbabagsak at babagksak pa rinsa lupang hindi magtatagal aylilisanin pa... Continue Reading →

Godlock

by Francis Miguel Panday I wanted to write something about lockdown, especially for a Filipino.Where do I even begin to write about the saddest summer of who-knows-when? Where do I find it in myself to start saying that I now dread these humid afternoons when I binge eat and watch series or download what would... Continue Reading →

May Awa Ang Diyos

by Kenan Clark. B. Gawaran "𝘈𝘸𝘢 𝘯𝘨 𝘋𝘪𝘺𝘰𝘴, 𝘮𝘢𝘣𝘶𝘵𝘪 𝘯𝘢𝘮𝘢𝘯..." "𝘏𝘦𝘵𝘰, 𝘢𝘸𝘢 𝘯𝘨 𝘋𝘪𝘺𝘰𝘴, 𝘣𝘶𝘩𝘢𝘺 𝘱𝘢 𝘯𝘢𝘮𝘢𝘯..." "𝘈𝘸𝘢 𝘯𝘨 𝘋𝘪𝘺𝘰𝘴, 𝘬𝘢𝘩𝘪𝘵 𝘨𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘰 𝘦𝘩 𝘯𝘢𝘬𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘰𝘴 𝘯𝘢𝘮𝘢𝘯..." Parati akong hinahatid sa napakalalim na pagninilay ng mga katagang ito na nakaugalian nang isagot ng mga Filipino sa tuwing sila'y kinukumusta. Nakalulungkot lang na hindi ko na gaano naririnig...
