President Duterte is presently feeling forlorn at the top – and struggling with being exhausted and came up short on in spite of the hero worship of millions who gave him the greatest number of votes in history for any Philippine presidential competitor.
“Do not feel shortchanged. My will to work is there. But if you ask me if I’m happy, I am not. It’s lonely. And even when I am home, it is still work,” he added.

There were times, he proceeded with, that he would shed tears while strolling, recollecting his dad, or contemplating the issues confronting him as President of the nation. It is amid these minutes that he would just let himself know "That is life."
Nagpaloko lang kasi ako… gusto ko suntukin ‘yung (nanloko),” Duterte said.
“Tapos pag-uwi ko magba-barge… matulog. Wala na lahat. Pagod ka na… tapos tinanong ko ang sweldo, 130 – ‘Di mabuti pa nag-mayor ako yon lang pala. Ewan ko nga kung may allowance pa ako dito o wala. Hindi ako makatanong. Wala man akong matanungan” he said, alluding to the stream crossing he makes every night from the Palace to Bahay Pagbabago over the Pasig, the Coast Guard ever ready.
The President focused on the main reason he is staying in the occupation is his love for the nation. | ROD
