Isa akong taong maraming ginagawa sa buhay; tuloy hindi ko na tuloy namalayan na wala na pala akong oras for my family.
I evolved myself at home and work; and nothing else. I forgot that someone was waiting for my hugs, kisses and attention. When I woke up the next morning, the most special person I love was gone. He just left me a note telling me my faults. I cried out so loud. It hurts. It hurts not because he left me. It hurts because the truth struck my heart. It was my fault.
The next thing I knew I fell in love for the second time around. I promised to give him time. My kids love my idea since they have someone to called daddy! We didn’t get married yet because of my past relationship. It was not a problem with him. We had been living together for 5 years now, and I don’t see any problem with our situation.
When I arrived home, my eldest daughter who is already 12 years old was lying on her bed. She was bleeding. I asked her why. She said “tito raped me.” I was shocked, and didn’t know what to do with my daughter. In her eyes I saw her agony and helplessness. As her mother ,I had mixed emotions. I felt pity, anger with the one who did it to her, and of course, with myself. Of all people, why my child?
I sat in front of her and wiped her face. I vehemently said we will fight and put him in jail. But she didin’t like my idea. I didn’t notice my man was just behind; watching us with his devilish smile. Without second thought, I slowly pullled out my pen knife which was always in my pocket.
I grabbed him. I killed him. I didn’t feel sorry for what I did. My child saw it. She hysterically shouted. Our neighbors heard her.
I ended in jail. But I have no regrets. I was able to give justice to my child. I am a mother who will do anything and everything for her children.
