tungkol sa pagkiling (of yields)


ang umaga'y sumilang
na may dalang liwanag
at kasiyahan
sa labi
ng isang nagugutom
na mortal.

why do we wake up
each day
only to tire ourselves
and then look forward
to another sleep?


ang tanghali'y tumirik

na may lason,
na mapait ma'y
pinilit hagkan
ng nasabik
na mangmang.

...why do we tend

to forget things
that we needed;
and instead,
remember
those things
that hurt us
and should have
walked away from?

ang gabi'y kumalat

na may kamatayan
sa tuyot na talulot
ng mga tayutay
at tugma
ng isang
lumimot
na manunulat.

and why can't we just
warp to tomorrow

and write the history
of today
...as another memory
of yesterday?

xXx

maybe, it's the feeling BEFORE the "hurt" that we remember; that which is good, and infinitely addicting that it supersedes the knowledge of what comes AFTER. and that's why we keep falling into the same old trap.

we cannot define what it is to be human by the complexities we have to go through. instead, it's the process by which we deal with either the good or the bad that defines us, individually. what we are is the result of all we've been through.

Lagi naman sigurong ganun, kaya nga kailangang lumubog ng araw sa gabi upang lagyan ng hangganan ang kalungkutan o pagkakamali ng ngaun at muling sumisikat pagsapit ng umaga upang magbigay ng panibagong pag-asa...

Pag nagbabasa ako ng tula mo, nagiging emo ako... n_n
