Ang Aking Ana


Paunawa: Ang tulang ito ay import mula sa dating friendster blog ko na aking na-revive. Ito’y nai-publish ko noong ika-11 ng Abril, 2008 na ang mga komento ay makikita rito. Sa tulang ito ay may babaeng nagduda na hindi ako ang may gawa. Ang sagot ko kanya ay makikita rito.

Ang Aking Ana

Ang aking naging panganay, Ana Regina Carmeli

Ang tulang nasa ibaba ay naisulat ko nung ako’y binata pa. Kasama ng iba ko pang naisulat, ito’y itinago ko na lang at kinalimutan. Nang nakita ko na ang babaing inibig ko nang husto, ako’y nagpasyang lumagay na sa tahimik…

Pagdaan ng mga araw, nalaman kong malapit na akong maging tatay. May napagkasunduan kami ng misis ko na kung lalaki ang magiging panganay namin, ako ang pipili ng magiging pangalan. Kung babae naman, siya. Nung mga panahong ‘yon may napili na ako: Juan Carlos Isidoro, in short, JCI. Ang Juan ay sa lolo ko sa mother side. Ang Carlos ay sa Carlos P. Garcia na pinsan ng nanay ko at ang Isidoro naman ay siyempre, sa akin.

Nang siya’y nagluwal na, isang sanggol na babae kaya siya ang nagbigay ng pangalan. Dahil sa ang misis ko ay palasimba, ang naging pangalan ng sanggol ay Ana Regina Carmeli. Hindi ko alam kung saan niya nakuha ang ‘Ana’. Ang alam ko ay ang Regina Carmeli, Queen of (Mt.) Carmel. Nang itanong ko ito sa kanya, sumagi lang daw sa isipan niya. Ang sapantaha ko’y nakuha niya ito sa karakter na ginawa ko. Baka nasa subconscious na niya ito dahil nung magkasintahan pa lang kami, nabasa na niya ang mga naisulat ko.

‘Yon lang…

  4. i agree with you in your assessment of Phil. politics..it happened in my own family, distant though the kinship from their point of view. Despite the pronoun cements, the Pinoys, if not all, the majority, have not really learned from experience. they could have lambasted GMA in her own province to show her that enough is enough. The case of the Dutertes is different. For the entire time Mayor Digong was in service, the peace and order situation of Davao City has gone to the max peaceful and orderly…Its not enough that we love our leader, we should also have respect and a little fear that he means business if u make a mistake. I guess that’s what happened in Davao City.

    Well, it’s god’s will Noynoy ran for the presidency…If he did not, Erap would have been back in office…we can never tell the scenario had noynoy not run for the post…baka si Villar o si Gibo ang nanalo….

    Popularity-wise or not,there must have been a great Divine Intervention in answer to millions of prayers that went beyond the heavens…Noynoy ran and won…otherwise,____________________ (we will never know the continuation of this sentence….)

    It will give the entire sambayanan ng Pinoys here and abroad the chance to see how Noynoy will put into action what they professed in their campaign, “PAG WALANG CORRUPT, WALANG MAHIRAP!” Hindi ba? so let’s all give each other a chance lalo na at naglipana ang pagkaramiraming corrupt ngayon…arent they timely? so we will see how noynoy will carry the Philippines amidst all these very timely resurrection of the Marcoses, etc…and hangover, GMA…Ang saya po!!!!!!

    • Divine Intervention or kakulangan ng awareness ng mga botante?

      I believe in God but not in pre-destination. What is happening now is the outcome of what we have been doing in the past. Take for example ‘GLOBAL WARMING’. Is it God’s will? I don’t think so. If pre-destination works, all we need to do is relax, lie down and wait for what Nostradamus et al told us what we will be. There’s no need to work, to strive, to worry.

    • why would Pampanguenos lambast GMA when she delivered projects in Pampanga more that the province probably deserved [considering the needs of the entire nation].

      Prof Randy David to me would have made a better congressman than her but I think Prof David is very much in touch with reality. For electorates, it would have likely been comparing hope and promises vs what Pampanguenos in general enjoyed during the term of PGMA. [If]Prof David represented gambling while PGMA represented whatever was there concrete.
