[Tula] Sabi nila’y “Presente” ni Greg Bituin Jr.

“Presente”, ang sabi nilang may hawak na larawan
sa taunang Kalbaryo ng Kawalang Katarungan
patunay na ang mahal nila’y di nalilimutan
na winala noon, di na makita ang katawan

sila’y iwinala gayong pinaglaban ang tama
pagbabago ang adhika, bayan ay mapalaya
mula sa kuko ng mapagsamantala’t kuhila
hanggang ngayon, ang hinahanap na hustisya’y wala

“Presente” para sa lahat ng desaparesidos
ito rin ang sigaw kong nakikibaka ng lubos
sigaw rin ng ibang ang pakikibaka’y di tapos
na sa masa’y patuloy pang naglilingkod ng taos

tuloy ang paghahanap sa katawan at hustisya
ng mga nagmamahal at naulilang pamilya
hiling na kahit katawan sana’y matagpuan na
“Presente”, hustisyang asam nawa’y kamtin na nila
