A GLASS OF COLD WATER

(This declamation piece is about a beautiful young girl who was busy preparing herself for a party. When her mother asked for a glass of water, she ignored her mother and went to a party. When she went back home, she saw her mother lying down the floor, dead.  Regret always comes in the end.
This piece is suited for young girls  for it is very easy to memorize.)



Everybody calls me young, beautiful, wonderful. Am I? Look at my hair, my lips, my red rosy cheeks and a pair of blinkering eyes.

I remember, somebody says that I look like my mother that I look like my mother. But that when she was young.

Now, I am much lovelier than she is. I’m a mortal Venus. Oops! What time is it? I must get ready for the party!

Beep-beep…!A-huh! Here they are! Yes, I’m coming!

"Child, are you still there?"

"Hmp! That’s my mama"

"Child, are you still there? Will you please get me a glass of cold water?"

"Mama, I’m in a hurry!"

"Please child, try to get me a glass of cold water."

"Mama, please, try to get it on your own."

"Please child, try to get me a glass of cold water!"

At the party, I danced and danced the whole night. You see, I can’t leave the party at once. I have to dance with everybody who proposed to me.

At last, the party is over. I’m very tired. Very, very tired. So, I went home to tell mama what happened.

"Mama, I’m home! It’s very quiet. "Mama, I’m home!" Nobody answers. Where is she? I look for her in the sala, but she’s not there. Where is she? A-huh! In the kitchen!

I saw my mama, lying down on the floor, dead. With a glass on her hand. I remember, she tried to get it.
Oh, God, just for the glass of cold water! Mama! Mama! Oh, Mama!

  2. :( How pitiful her mother was.. I saw my reflection from the girl herself. Now I know that I should do whatever my Mama asks for me, even I don't wanted to do it. Such a tragedic story... But it's a spectacular declamation piece for everyone who read it! :D

  5. The girl prioritized first the not so important party instead of her mom that needs a cold water to feel good. The girl don't know her priorities and she did not give respect to her one and only mother. In life we should know our responsibilities especially to our parents. They raised us up and work hard for us to have a good life and its our duty to take care of them in times of need particularly when they got sick. :))

  6. Aw =[ how sad. I pity her mother. I don't want this thing happen to me in the near future. How I wish I can say "I Love You" to my Mother after reading the piece, but I can't 'cause I'm very shy to do so. Hope I can say it before it's too late. By the way, love this piece, very inspiring! <3

  7. ~ my god...it is a very common attitude shown by the teenager at this 21st century...but guys my question is if your the girl in that situation and you didn't even know that a most terrible thing will happen would you still listen to your mom...i am not going to pretend that i am that girl sometimes but i always ask for forgiveness when i cannot do my task's that she assigned to me...but that piece was a very very wonderful piece to read by a teenager specially student's...

Now her mom died she repentant.. the other people said (*ang pag sisisi ay nasa huli*) BTW,this declamation piece is very beautiful and inspiring and it has a moral lesson :)

  11. Oh,my god!how sad it is...She is the only child of her mom,she has the responsibility to do what her mother said to her..Even to get a glass of water,she can't do it?Why?she is stronger than her mom,I can say that she is stronger than her mom because when I am reading the piece,I already feel that her mother is sick....If I am on her situation,,I will do all the things for my mother.....because she is my mother and I love her.....

  17. i feel sad about what happen in that story,because the lead character shows that a party that she want to go is more importance to her,than to get her mother a glass of cold water.

  21. a sad but inspiring declamation..
    even though this declamation is short, it states a very important lesson that we must prioritize our parents before anything else.. esp. our mother because she's the one that suffer to bring us into this world.
    sad to say that this declamation reflects, most if not all, the teenagers now..
    still it is a winning piece to declaim!! rawrr .

  22. this piece is so sad. why did the girl disobey her mother?
    this expresses that we need to sacrifice even just a little or even just "a glass of cold water" for our mother, because they sacrificed and will sacrifice more for us......
    .and I believe that, "no man is an island", because no one can and would live without our parents.. esp. our mother...
