"Leaving A baby in a Fortuner Video"


"Leaving A baby in a Fortuner Video"

There is a video circulating on the internet of a concerned citizen finding a 2 year old who was left inside a Fortuner along Metrowalk. The parents of the boy was found after 5 minutes by a guard and they even got mad at the guard for looking for them as if the guard was in the wrong.

A 2 year old baby in a Fortuner with no one to accompany him , without air and panicking as he was alone. What kind of monsters would leave their child like that? And then people find out that his parents were out drinking in Metrowalk. 

I probably would have thought of a scenario were they were meeting some clients for a business meeting and they cannot afford to have the child in the meeting but then again why the hell would I justify a monstrous act? 

Kung nagalit ka pa dun sa concerned na tao sa anak mo dahil naistorbo ko sa pagiinom mo habang naiwan yung anak mo na walang kasama eh sobrang galing mo na talaga. Bakit ka pa naganak? Bakit mo pa sinama kung gaganyanin mo lang pala?

In some other world there might be a perfectly logical explanation for all this. Unfortunately we are not in that other world. And Children should never ever be left like this.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

The Mom in an interview said that they were not drunk but she went to the bathroom and was on her way to feed another child , a 6 year old. She had left the 2 year old in the Fortuner because he was asleep. Tulfo was not buying it as she was gone for more than 10 minutes. Despite her apologies she tried to shift anger at the concerned citizen who wanted to smash their car window to save the child. Tulfo would have none of that though and the last update was that this mom would report to the DSWD. Sheesh.

I
Unti unting tumiklop ang talukap ng mga mata
kakaintay sa mga sinasabi mo na di dumadating
Di ko na alam kung ito ba ay tama
ang alam ko lang kailangan ko na talagang malaman

II
Ano na ba ang sagot mo sa mga tanong?
Malabo pa din pa para di mo maramdaman?
Parang tanga tumitingin kung sasagot ka pa
alanganin na ang oras pero ito di pa pumipikit

III
Pero bakit parang may liwanag na sa labas
eh naghihintay pa din.
Siguro mamaya. Siguro bukas. Siguro sa susunod na araw.
O siya siya siya. Itutulog ko na lang.

IV
At sa pagpikit lumabas din ang hinihintay. 
Di na malamang mababasa. Binura na ang mga natira.
Pinatay ang laptop at tuluyan nang umalis.

Oo.

I
The World Wakes but I don't
Alone here in my bed
I want time to step
by that is easier said

II
If I could wish a single thing
Then it is to open my eyes
So please whisper in my ear
Let us give this another try.
