#Reimagine Sa S̶u̶s̶u̶n̶o̶d̶ ̶N̶a̶ ̶H̶a̶b̶a̶n̶g̶ Kabilang Buhay

Palagi akong nananaginip
At pag-gising ko

p̶a̶r̶a̶ ̶a̶k̶o̶n̶g̶ ̶n̶a̶g̶l̶u̶l̶u̶k̶s̶a̶ ̶s̶a̶ ̶p̶a̶g̶m̶a̶m̶a̶h̶a̶l̶ ̶n̶a̶ ̶d̶i̶ ̶k̶o̶ ̶p̶a̶ ̶n̶a̶m̶a̶n̶ ̶n̶a̶h̶a̶n̶a̶p̶

ako ay nagluluksa sa pagmamahal na matagal ko nang nahanap

May nalimutan yata ako
May naiwan sa daan
May biglang p̶a̶g̶-̶g̶a̶a̶n̶ pag-bigat ng mga balikat ko at hindi ko maintindihan

At sa sobrang g̶a̶a̶n̶ bigat

Masakit

This dark humor work of art is rooted from the masterpiece that was the music video of Sa Susunod na Habang Buhay by Ben & Ben. It has a spoken word by Juan Miguel Severo, as an intro. The direction by Jorel Lising and screenplay by JMS, add to the audience’s consumption experience.

You can better appreciate this by watching Shutter, a 2004 Thai horror film, which is considered a cult classic. Pictures are from the movie.

How far can one’s true love go?

Hindi ba
Pangako mo nung una
Tiwala’y iingatan

‘Di talaga inasahan
Magkagulo’t magkagulatan

Shutter 2004, GMM Grammy

Ikaw pa rin
Ang pipiliin kong mahalin
Kahit ako’y sumakabilang-buhay

Hihintayin kita sa susunod na habang buhay

This is part II of a three-part series called “Reimagine A Song.” I choose an existing song and then deconstructing & reconceptualizing it. The first song is linked here.

There are many ways to present your art. And sometimes, it’s coming from an existing creation already…but you try to add value to it. And you transform it to something new. (But of course, proper citation for the inspiration is important).

You can see more of my work on my Instagram “art billboard.”

Andrew Beso is a Manila-based content creator who is exploring different ways of sharing art — whether it be written, spoken, and visualized. His work, aside from being in Medium, can also be seen on Youtube, Instagram, and Tiktok. All his creative expressions use varying styles, lenses, and mediums of storytelling.
