(Since Then) I Hate the Rain

It has been a very long time since I wrote my last poem. Law school has been so demanding. It’s because it was raining so hard, which I was annoyed at, this afternoon that I was move to write a poem about it.

Ang Nagpaparaya’y Nasasaktan Din

Matagal-tagal na rin mula nang ako’y huling nakapagsulat ng tula dahil sa sobrang busy ko. Yesterday, I found the time to write this post-Valentine “bitter” poem, ika nga nila. I was listening to a post-Valentine acoustic fab at the SM Northwing while waiting for my phone to be completely repaired. Many of the songs performed were so melancholic that I was able to reminisce my sad love story these days and even in my past. Ang tulang ito’y para sa lahat ng mga laging nagpaparaya para sa ikaliligaya ng iba.

*Credits to Warner Bros for the background pic. On the photo is a scene of Eponine (Samantha Barks) singing “On My Own”. Eponine has become an icon of “friendzoned people” these days. But beyond that is Eponine’s laudable sacrifice of her self-interest (love) on Marius for the sake of the revolution.

Liham para kay Ka Andres

Today, we celebrate the 149th Birthday of Gat Andres Bonifacio – one of our Filipino heroes who fought against colonizers, seeking independence and not just mere autonomy from Spain. He is dubbed as the Father of the Philippine Revolution as he founded the KKK (Kataas-taasang Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan) and some historians would consider him as the first Filipino President.

Alongwith, I wrote this-letter poem to pay tribute to him. This was written at the time of his execution, using the Katipunan alphabet.

Liham-Para-Kay-Bonifacio-(KKK)

Here’s a translation:

Ika-10 ng Mayo 1897

Ka Andres,Malamang ang sulat na ito’y
‘di na umabot
sa mga kama’y mong
malamang ay
gasgas na
sa pagkakagapos
ng kanilang mga interes
sa lupaing ito,
o dili kaya’y
malamang na
ang mga mata mo’y
pikit na
sa pagkahapo
habang inaakay ka
ni Ina.

Datapwa’t nababanaag ko
na sa iyong pagkatumba,
bawat piraso ng kat’wan mong bugbog
ay magsisilbing mga punlang
kusang maitatanim
sa sinapupunan
ng Tinubuang Lupa,
madidiligan ng Pula mong dugong
umagos mula sa mga sugat
gawa ng kataksilan ng mga kasama,
hanggang sa
sisibol na
iyong kawangis
at ipagpapatuloy
ang iyong mithiing
kasarinlan at
demokrasya,
Perlas ng Silanga’y
Pupula.

Supremo,
Unang Pangulo,
Ama ng Himagsikan,
Ama ng Kasarinlan,
Ama ng Demokrasya,
Mabuhay ka, mabuhay ka!

Lubos na gumagalang,
Ka Tiyano

“Bayan, bayan, bayan ko, ‘di pa tapos ang laban mo. Rebolusyon ni Bonifacio, isulong mo, isulong mo!”

Paulit-ulit

Ay! Nakalimutan po!
Sori.

 

Ay! Nakalimutan po!
Sori.

 

Ay! Nakalimutan po!
Sori.

Ay! Nakalimutan po!
Sori.

Ay! Nakalimutan po!
Sori.
Ay! Nakalimutan!
Sori!
Ay nakalimutan sori!
Ay nakalimutan sori!
Ay nakalimutan sori!
Ahy…

 

Paulit-ulit na lang
ang mga pagkakamali
Kaya’t napapagod.

Paano ngayon uusad?

Hangga’t hindi
matututo,
Paulit-ulit pa rin.
Hanggang sa
mapagod
at
hindi na
makausad.

 

O, asan na?
Ay! Nakalimutan po!
Sori.

Bahala’g kapoy maghulat

Salamat sa Ginoo!
Ikaw miabot na!
Apan pahibaw-on ko ikaw:
Matag minuto,
ginlantaw ko ang dalan,
naghinaot nga makita imong dagway.
Kon aduna’y mo-agi,
akong kasingkasing kalit muambak!
Naghikab-hikab sa imong pag-abot.
Bisa’g kapuyan na sa paghulat,
muambak gihapon.
Karon nga ikaw miabot na,
dile pasabot nga ikaw na gayod
ang akong makauban
padulong sa destinasyon
niining kinabuhi ko karong adlawa.
Apan akong pakigbisugan,
masulod lamang ko
sa gamay mong lawas,
O, Zero Four Em.
