UPS AND DOWNS

ups-and-downs

Love you said was a roller coaster
Treacherous switchback it bestrides
Swirled up and twisted you under
You grinned and cried but loved the ride
Cried the tears of pain and delight
Just ride again when love rolls down
By then you know the twists and turns
Buckle up in delight be drowned
Before downwards the ride returns
Expect the many ups and downs
Expect the twizzles and the twines
When spun and twirled never whine
Sit tight never ever let go
Hold still and roll on with the flow

About Hardpen

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. 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!
