DALOY

“Malungkot dahil malayo ka sa pamilya mo. Walang mag-aalaga sa ‘yo kung magkasakit ka. Walang mag-aasikaso ng pagkain mo at bibili ng gamot mo. Kailangang kumilos ka para alagaan ang sarili. Mahirap dahil anuman ang nararamdaman mo, pagdating ng 5 pm, kailangan mong gumayak para pumasok sa trabaho. Kailangan mong maligo, mag-make-up, at magplantsa ng iyong isusuot na damit.”

– “Ako, OFW” ni Carmela S. Anteza
