ORAS

time

Ikaw nga ba ang simula at hangganan
Daang puno’t dulo’y hindi matanawan
Dagdag pa’y bugtong kang walang kasagutan
Napakahiwaga mong palaisipan

Ang mga paham pinilit kang sukatin
Bawat galaw mo segundo kung tawagin
Ikaw nga ba talaga’y pwedeng bilangin
Isa ka bang daanan na pwedeng lakbayin

May tangkay kang patuloy paiikutin
Pag-ikot na ‘di namin pwedeng pigilin
Pag-ikot na dapat ay aming habulin
Tunay ngang kami’y kawawa mong alipin

 

Sa kamay mo kagandaha’y kumukupas
Inuubos mo ang taglay naming lakas
Buhay ma’y parang dahon mong nilalagas

Sa itinakda mo’y wala kaming ligtas


Bakit kasi nagtakda ka ng hangganan
Dapat bang ang lahat ay may katapusan
Pagikot ng kamay mo minsa’y pigilan
Saya’y h’wag palampasin sa kasukdulan

 

Paglipas mo ay pwede bang pabagalin
Kabataa’y h’wag agad palilipasin
Kabantuga’y pagtagalin mo ang ningning

Ganda’t lakas h’wag kagyat pakukupasin


Pabalik sa balag mo kami’y pagapangin
Panahong nagdaan aming dadalawin
Mga maling nagawa ay buburahin
Masasayang sandali muling nanamnamin

 

Bintana ng bukas sana’y iyong buksan
Nang ang mangyayari aming matanawan
Malungkot na tadhana’y maiiwasan
Hayaang buhay sa saya matuldukan

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!
