DAHIL NUON PA MAN AY ‘TATLO’ NA TAYO-

SA MGA PANAGINIP KO.

 

SA TUWING MAKIKITA KO ANG DAGAT AT ANG MGA ALON NA SUMASAYAW SA BUGSO NG HANGIN,

SA MGA ALON NA IYON, SA MALAWAK NA DAGAT NA TILA YATA WALA NANG KATAPUSAN.

 

MINSAN MO NANG SINABI: “MAKIKITA MO AKO KAPAG NAKINIG KA SA MUSIKA NG KABIBE”.

KAYA KAPAG NALULUNGKOT AKO, TINATAPAT KO LANG SA TENGA KO ANG KABIBENG PAG-AARI KO…

PEDRO, SALAMAT…

AT NAGING KAIBIGAN KITA

the first day of rehearsal for “KANSER”, with exclusive photos by MR. JHAY-R LAGRIMAS…

a lonely writer reads on the everlasting messages and words of Dr. Jose Rizal...
a lonely writer reads on the everlasting messages and words of Dr. Jose Rizal…

It was a rainy morning but the sky was clear. And somehow, the rains gave one lonely writer a feeling of comfort, though, he never knew why. He felt competitive, wanting to challenge the rain and erase all those feelings of losses and pains. Or maybe, he simply wanted to start anew.

The heavy traffic that morning didn’t become a hindrance, either. The comfort he felt with the rain made him feel relaxed and tranquil- not the ‘panicky-type-of-feeling’ he had always felt in the past. He was on his way that day to meet a celebrity friend that would accompany him to the rehearsals of Gantimpala Theater Foundation’s upcoming new mild musical version of the longest-running play-KANSER.

The celebrity friend was no less than award-winning theater director Frannie Zamora, who was also so generous enough to treat him at a luxurious Korean-Japanese restaurant near the Broadway Centrum, complex area. The lunch was fabulous with laksa noodles,  fresh vegetable lumpias, and more. Afterwards, they both proceeded to the venue of the rehearsals at the AFP theater.

Braving the very heavy traffic in that 12-noon time of day, the lonely writer felt redeemed upon reaching the rehearsal venue, and this time, newcomer Jansen Aguilar joined them as they met upon him at the gates of the AFP camp. At once, the tranquil feeling was transformed into something more professional this time, and no longer personal. Seeing those theater actors and actresses inside the rehearsal venue, all ready to get their works done, and the production staff/team so well-organized with their job system, nothing else would have mattered.

We saw all the names of the complete cast of the play written on a computerized paper and we copied all the names in our notes. Everything was written in paper, even the by-rules of the house theater group, the play’s scripts, and other detailed materials including the songs. With that, lesser tensions and pressures was eased by now.

All the performers were now holding their scripts, ready for the script-reading sessions and lines to be spoken by each. What a great feeling. Seeing all these creative artists in front of you, reading their lines and all, and further more reuniting with their hidden passions on the performing arts, it was, indeed, a good day to linger in.

As the words were spoken, the real “soul” emerged. It was, maybe, the soul of Dr. Jose Rizal himself- the creator of the book Noli Me Tangere as to which the play Kanser was adapted upon- so efficiently and truthfully. In those words spoken by the lines in the play by each of the cast, Dr. Rizal’s teachings and messages was again felt by the lonely writer. Words that spoke of freedom, of unity, of bravery.

And those words, yes, those words- were the very words that made one country rose up from the ashes and emerged as one independent nation that the Filipino youths of today were enjoying. Once again, we believed- that- “THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD”.

Through those words on the play’s script, we could imagine how beautiful this new mild musical version of KANSER is going to be. That the students and that the youths must know and watch anew. Relieve their own Filipino values and PRIDE.

For many years now, Gantimpala Theater Foundation had fought. They fought to preserve this “jewel” of a literary creation that a hero had written, that a genius had died for, that a co-Filipino had sacrificed for. Through the power of the performing arts, the ‘soul’ and the passion must be relieved over and over again- for the young to know and continue on with the LEGACY.

“Without any major sponsors backing us up, we continued fighting for our theater group to survive”, director Frannie Zamora said to the lonely writer before that writer left the venue of the rehearsals. “Sometimes, we felt like quitting. But once you see the students watching our plays and through their faces we saw anew the hope and true identity of us Filipinos, our energies continue to zest up. This year’s version of KANSER, I promise, is going to be a very beautiful one.”

************

The lonely writer moved on, as he left. He went down by the marble stairs of the theater’s facade and walked past the AFP camp. The rains had stopped somehow, but the skies were clearer.

On a clear day, you could see EVERYTHING.

And among the people who goes on living not just because of money or any material gains were the people who works for theater. It’s a mission that God never fails to see-

just like…

FOREVER.

(as the words were written by robert manuguid silverio, on a moment when separate dimensions somehow fixed-in and stood still-amidst the ever-changing tides of ETERNITY).*

“Ikaw Na Nga”

Parang biro lamang
Dumating ang tulad mo
At may isang pag ibig
na tapat at totoo
Dahil sayo’y naramdaman
Ang tunay na pagmamahal
Iniibig kita kahit sino ka man

Ikaw na nga
Ang hinahanap ng puso
Ang siyang magbibigay ng saya ng tamis
At lambing sa buhay ko,
Ikaw na nga
Ang bawat panaginip ko
Sa piling mo’y nagkatotoo,
Ang lahat ng mga pangarap ko
Ikaw na nga ito

Palaging mayroong kulang
Sa isang pagmamahal
Ang tanging kailangan
Puso ay mapagbigyan
Dahil sayo’y naramdaman
Ang tunay na pagmamahal
Iibigin kita kahit sino ka man

Ikaw na nga
Ang hinahanap ng puso
Ang siyang magbibigay ng saya ng tamis
At lambing sa buhay ko,
Ikaw na nga
Ang bawat panaginip ko
Sa piling mo’y nagkatotoo,
Ang lahat ng mga pangarap ko
Ikaw na nga ito

ARAW, GABI

MAY DUMARATING PERO BIGLA RING NAWAWALA…

MAY BUMABALIK, PERO HINDI MO NAMAN NAKIKITA…

MAY NANANATILI, PERO HINDI MO NAMAN NAAABOT.

MAY NAGMAMAHAL, PERO LUMALAYO.

MAY NABIBIGO, PERO HINDI NAGLALAHO.

PERO GAYA NGA NG SABI NG IBA-

“BAHALA NA SI BATMAN”.

MAGPAKAILANMAN.

“Araw-Gabi”

Di biro ang sumulat ng awitin para sa’yo
Para akong isang sirang ulo, hilo at lito
Sa akin pang minanang piyano
Tiklado’y pilit nilaro
Baka sakaling merong tono
Bigla na lang umusbongTungkol saan naman kayang awiting para sa’yo
‘Di biro ang gawing sukat ang titik sa tono
Sampu man aking diksyonaryo
Kung ang tugma’y di wasto
Basta’t isipin ‘di magbabago
Damdamin ko sa’yo

Araw-gabi
Nasa isip ka, napapanagip ka
Kahit’san man magpunta
Araw-gabi
Nalalasing sa tuwa
Kapag kapiling ka
Araw-gabi tayong dalawa

Biruin mong nasabi ko
Ang nais kong ipahatid
Dapat mo lamang mabatid
Laman nitong dibdib
Tila sampung pa ang awitin
ang natapos kong likhain
Ito ang tunay na damdamin tanggapin at dinggin

Araw-gabi tayong dalawa.

“BRING ME TO LIFE”

22 222

in the darkest of nights, most of all in the darkest hours of my life… you brought me back to life.
in the deepest recesses of my soul, i came undone of nothing i become.
in highest falls, failures, losses and mistakes of every living minute…
only you understood me.
in my dreams and sudden amnesiac tendencies… i saw you.
in the sudden breeze, breaths of fresh air, calming wind and magnificent hidden embraces as i laid in bed..
i felt you.
as i fell in the highest building, you held my hand.
i tried to escape and tried to linger in looking at the fleshy existence of the “LGBT” world of black leather jackets, fetish whims and vampire-like world…
but i never got happy.
i didn’t know why you came back for me, amidst all my shortcomings and mistakes.
but only one thing i can say…
THANK YOU AND I LOVE YOU REALLY.
