Ang Pagiging Babae ay Pamumuhay sa Panahon ng Digma (to be a woman is to live at a time of war)



Footnote:
Filipina Poet Professor Joi Barrios, Phd wrote in the 1990's:  ANG PAGIGING BABAE AY PAMUMUHAY SA PANAHON NG DIGMA
TO BE A WOMAN IS TO LIVE AT A TIME OF WAR


To be a woman
Is to live at a time of war.

I grew up
with fear beside me,
uncertain of a future,
hinged to the men of my life;
father, brother,
husband, son.
I was afraid to be alone.

To be a mother
Is to look at poverty at its face.
For the cruelty of war
Lies not on heads that roll,
But tables always empty.
How does one look for food for the eldest
As a baby sucks at one’s breast?

No moment is without danger.
In one’s own home,
To speak, to defy
Is to challenge violence itself.
In the streets,
Walking at nightfall
Is to invite a stranger’s attack.
In my country
To fight against oppression
Is to lay down one’s life for the struggle.

I seek to know this war.
To be a woman is a never ceasing battle
To live and be free.

 Ang Pagiging Babae ay Pamumuhay sa Panahon ng Digma
ni Joi Barrios
Ang pagiging babae
ay pamumuhay
sa panahon ng digma
Kapiling ko sa aking paglaki
ang pangamba
hindi ko tiyak ang bukas na laging nakakawing
sa mga lalaki ng aking buhay;
ama, kapatid,
asawa, anak.
Kinatatakutan ko ang pag-iisa.
Sa pagiging ina,
kaharap ko'y tagsalat.
Pagkat ang lupit ng digmaan
ay hindi lamang paggulong ng mga ulo
pagguhit ng espada,
kundi unti-unting pagkaubos
ng pagkain sa hapag.
ay, paano magpapasuso ng bunso
habang naghahanap ng maisusubo sa panganay?
Walang sandaling walang panganib.
Sa lansangan,
ang paglakad sa gabi'y
pagtukso sa kapahamakan.
Sa sariling tahanan,
ang pagsagot at pagsuwa'y
ay pag-aanyaya ng karahasan.
Kaytagal kong pinag-aralan
ang puno't dulo
nitong digmaan.
Sa huli'y naunawaan kong
ang pagiging babae
ay walang katapusang pakikibaka
para mabuhay at maging malaya.
