Ron-ron will be sent to his final destination and will be buried beneath the earth for this is the last day people will mourn over his dead body.
Ron-ron is a guy who I frequently see here in our barangay. He is sometimes called Sixto because of his height (6 feet 2 inches). Rumor said that he committed suicide by hanging his self.
When my sister arrived last night, she was asking why there were a lot of people outside. It’s just now that I realized that maybe last night was also the last mourning for his wake.
Today, friends of Ron-ron are on the streets wearing shirts with his face printed on it and with a farewell message. I have no personal attachment with Ron-ron. We even spoke to each other like only once or twice when he was still living. I remember when I was still fond of attending gigs and was still a rock poseur, he was included in the group I join in in attending gig events.
Now, he will join the earth and will be buried on his grave. All I can think of why he committed suicide is because of the bullying he gets due to his not-the-usual tallness. Maybe there’s a more serious reason behind it like family problems, financial problems, etc.
He ended his life while we continue living ours.
