thoughts from my mind to yours

If your memory could speak to your mind…Napowrimo Day#6

Why do you hide me
to plaster a smile on your face
when you see them?
Why do you shred me in pieces
analyzing every angle,
tormenting your already tormented heart?
Why do you cradle me
with your favourite old school tune,
and drown in nostalgia,
on a lazy Saturday afternoon?
Why am I kept in this dusty part of your mind that is always so foggy
that you have a hard time accepting if I ever was real?
Why do you keep years worth of love stored away…
Is perhaps what the memory would say, if it could question the mind.

Open Letter to 22

Dear 22,

I see you
In my rearview,
Smiling,
Stark contrast to the crying baby,
I now hold in my arms.

22 I see you,
Twirling in the perfect dress
In your ‘perfect’ shape that you call
A ‘work in progress’…
Unknown of the scars you will bear
When birthing your child…
Unknown of the uphill climb it will take
To get back to this shape,
You may or may not reach,
While you struggle to find,
The ‘now perfect’ dress
That will hide, your imperfections.

22 I see you,
Wake up early 
for your first real job
After a good night’s sleep
While I go on my 2nd day with no sleep
And a sick baby… But 22, I want you to know I adore you,
I am proud of you for chasing your dreams
And smiling against all odds,
Just like how you will smile,
With a sick baby in your arms
Reminiscing about the times you were young
But never for once trade who you have become…
A warrior with battles to fight
A cook that creates a storm at night
A lover who lives to love
And above all
A mom,
Who holds this baby in her arms…
22, I see you.

 

Me on my 22nd bday many years ago haha…

Musings

Do you see what I see when I look at the grey skies

Do you hear what I hear when I hear the birds cry 

Do you feel what what I feel when I touch the green grass

Does your heart skip a beat when precious moments pass

Do you smell what I smell when I breathe in the earth

Does your heart connect with mine even when we are apart

Be Still

Be still

my restless heart

let the thoughts bite the dust this time

The world outside does not owe you anything

You owe it to yourself to do better

Stop losing yourself

in the dark ends of your mind

come out to the light
