Crying Capitol Man

Nu’ng nagse-share pa kami ni Thea ng apartment sa 42-G Panay, sobrang lapit lang namin sa Capitol Medical Center. Kapag sasakay ng jeep o mag-aabang kami ng taxi, dadaan kami sa may entrance ng ER kasi du’n madaling sumakay.

One morning, on my way to work may nakita akong mamang nakaupo sa may bangketa just outside the ER entrance. He looks like a young dad. May hawak siyang yosi pero hindi yata nakasindi. And he was just sobbing uncontrollably. As in crying, all alone, in public, in the middle of the day.

I kinda felt an urge to stop and just ask him then I realized I can’t just do that. Sometimes, when we cry we just need to let it all out and unexpected company, from a stranger at that, might seem intrusive. Nang kinuwento ko nga kay Thea sabi niya, “Eh, bakit kung ikaw ba ‘yung nasa sitwasyon niya ano’ng gusto mong sabihin sa’yo?” Sagot ko, “Oo nga.”

Like the Little Prince said (Ruffa Gutierrez, ikaw ba’yan?): It’s a secret place – the Land of Tears.
