Carla Abellana releases ‘Mahinahon,’ a visual poem on self-love
Carla Abellana poured her heart out in a new visual poem, “Mahinahon,” which is about self-love and one’s feeling of calmness after dealing with heartbreak.
The Kapuso actress talked about getting back up from experiencing extreme sadness while showing clips of herself at a rental vacation home in Antipolo, Rizal, for the visual poem, as seen on her YouTube channel yesterday, Dec. 13.
“Ang karagatan na hinagupit ng kalungkutan. / Ngayo’y nakatindig sa dalampasigan. / Hanggang dito na lang tayo. / Sa hangganan ng ikaw at ako. / Magkasamang hinulma ang bukas. / Magkatabing hinabi ang wakas,” she said.
The poem also addressed an anonymous second party who apparently caused the end of their relationship because they “chose themself.”
“Minsan mong pinangako ang araw / Ngunit sa paglubog, / ‘Di ka na muling lumitaw,” Abellana continued.
After talking about this apparent loss, Abellana then included in her poem some lines about mending one’s self and self-acceptance.
While Abellana did not elaborate on what the poem is about, it can be noted that 2022 has been a rough year for her, as news of her breakup with actor Tom Rodriguez arose earlier this year.
Prior to this, Abellana admitted that her divorce from Rodriguez is not fully settled yet since it is yet to be recognized in the Philippines. She also shared that she still cries over their separation. /ra
