Pinoy Poetry #3

Rey Punk

Sa pagdaan ng panahon, ano na nga bang nangyari
Sa ibat ibang bagay sa aking paglaki?
Mga di inaasahang bagay sa paglipas ng panahon,
Mga sandaling naiwan sa kahapon.

Natatandaan ko noong akoy musmos pa,
Mahilig sa pagbabasketbol at sa lakwatsa.
Maghapon sa galaan kasama ang barkada,
Kung hindi sa pasketbol ay sa pagbibisikleta

Sa paglipas ng mga taon, bisikleta koy naluma,
Mga sugat koy napuno hanggang sa king hita
Limang basketbol na ang aking nabutas,
Mga tuhod koy napuno ng gasgas.

Pagtungtong ng hayskul, natuto nang mag-cologne,
Suot na rin ang mga low-waist na pantaloon.
Ngunit hindi pa rin makatipo ng babae
Dahil sa totoo lang akoy natotorpe.

Pero aanhin ko ba ang magkaroon ng syota?
"Sakit lang sa ulo yan!" sabi ng matatanda.
Pero okey lang , weder-weder lang yan,
Hinding-hinding naman ako mapag-iiwanan!

Nitong mga huling taon, nahilig sa heavy metal,
Kaya sabi ng iba, nag-iba ang aking asal.
Nagsuot na rin ng chain sa aking panahon,
Kaya kung may makakita, akala akoy maton.

Nitong mga huling araw, ginalingan ko pa sa eskwela,
Kaya nga sa UPCAT, akoy nakapasa.
Paborito kong subject, siyempre, Pisika.
Kaya BS Physics ang aking kinuha.

Ngayoy college na, nag-aaral na sa UP,
Pero ano kaya ang susunod na mangyayari?
Makatulong kaya ang aking chain sa eskwela?
Ano kaya ang makuha, magna o summa?

Kaya sana kahit may chain sa pantaloon,
Huwag mangangamba, hindi ako maton.
Maging masaya sana sa mga susunod na taon,
Inyong magiging kaibigan sa pagdaan ng panahon.

Isang Latang Sardinas

Aling Nena, maaari bang
Maka-utang ng isang latang sardines
Nang maihain kami sa aming hapag
Wala akong makain
Sampu ng aking mga kapatid
At ng aking inang may sakit
Wala si tatay
Ksalukuyang nakikipagbuno
Sa mga makinarya sa pabrika
Maaaring matagaln pa siya sa pag-uwi
Maaaring wala siyang dala
Ni isang platitong pansit man lamang
Dahil sadyang kakarampot
Ang kanyang sweldo
Ngunit huwag kayong mag-alala
Makakabayad din ako
Kapag nakaluwag-luwag
Malapit na yon
Kapag nakahanap ako ng trabahong
May matinong sahod
Kung kalian man yon dumating
Walang nakaaalam
Sa hirap ng buhay ngayon
Walang kasiguraduhan
Kailangnang makaraos lang
Ang sikmuray magkalaman.

Sa Tuwing Ikay Wala

Sa araw-araw
Na dumarating
Aking panalangin
Ikay masilayan

Sa araw-araw
Na nagdaraan
Pusoy nahihirapan

Sa tuwing ikay wala
Sa tuwing di ka nakikita
Parang nawawala
Sa sarili

Sa pag-ihip ng hangin
Ang tanging mithiin
Ikaw ay Makita
Kahit isang saglit man lamang

Sa pag-ihip ng hangin
Tangay ang pag-asa
Na muli pang makita
Mala-anghel mong mukha

Sa tuwing ikay wala
Hindi mo nadarama
Ang aking pag-ibig na
Alay lamang sa iyo.

HINDI tungkol sa akin yung tulang "Rey Punk". ito ay tulang naisulat ko para sa isang kaibigan na tulad ko ay nakapasa rin sa UP dati. assignment niya ata para sa isang subject ang paggawa ng tula na tungkol sa sarili niya. e hindi siya nagsusulat ng tula kaya ako ang pinagawa niya. i think i did a good job naman. :D

Uy, BS Physics ka pala, ibig sabihin magaling ka sa math, hehe. Subukan mo nga gumawa ng tula using physics terms, hehe. Pero okey ang mga tula mo, may angas...
