If I smiled only when feeling happy,
How did I make my husband think all was well between us
When he forgot my birthday whilst at work yesterday
How do I make my harsh bosses think I like them
When I’m passively considering killing one of them as a lesson
How would I make the world believe my life a bed of roses
When asked about the exams I actually failed
How would I make pastor keep believing God only gives riches
When I haven’t eaten today as at this night of writing this
If I cried only when sad,
How do I make my lover know how hurtful his deceptions are
Hoping he won’t think I cry because I’m moved by his sugary words
How did I let my roommate know the scorpion sting hurt
Hoping he didn’t think it was because of my heartbreak
How would I let her know how much I missed her
Hoping she wouldn’t think I hurt from kneeling for too long
How would I make them know how funny and ridiculous they were
Hoping they wouldn’t think I was hot with jealousy
I have learnt what you wanted me to
You told me I needed to be smart and savvy
That I had to stop being naïve and grow up
And realise things aren’t always so simple
Well, I hope you can tell I have followed you obediently
And this is not just an act to get you off my neck
I hope you can tell I appreciate your seeing this
And I am not somewhat indifferent to what you really think
If only writers and writings were always sincere…

Hahaha! That sounded pleasant and encouraging, unlike this which sounds a bit blunt and brutal.
Thanks for playing along again.
Always a pleasure talking with you. = >
Awesome… but you know you had me at baby picture… HA!
Do you look upon a baby’s innocence and get taken in? Do you wish you could retain some purity, clarity, plainness, openness, simplicity? Can you unlearn the lessons that have etched indelible wrinkles on your face that no amount of botox can undo? Can you change the natures and personalities of those around you, and make snakes into earthworms or scorpions into crayfishes or vultures into butterflies?
Or can you remove the thoughts in my head that have driven me to say all these words like a philosophizing drunkard?
Oh dear! I should sleep. Please ignore me.
I just relate to babies… and crazy people… so… win/win for me… HA!
That’s just deep, crazy baby.
If it is anything…….I like it blunt and brutal!
Oh dear! She likes it blunt and brutal. That’s just brutal!
