Like balloons I am colourful outside
But sensitive and fragile inside.
Playful, captivating, alluring
Also intelligent, insensitive, and all too caring.
Like balloons, I can be fun
Yet I can also be glum.
I burst and pop out joy
And also suddenly deflate and be annoyed.
I can be a pop of red or a subtle green
But also be blue and gray and in between.
I can be as put together like a bouquet,
But also, like balloons I often float away.

I found a letter addressed to me
I read it slowly and carefully
“Hey beautiful! Remember you are beautiful…
In every single way
No matter what you feel each day.
Do not let the scale’s number or the clothing size define you.
You are wonderful and beautiful despite what some other people might say…
Despite what you might say to yourself.
You’re not perfect but you are unique so stop trying to fit in.
Be bold yet simple
Be delicate but strong
Be your awesome you!
There will be people who will put you down.
Society will try to change you to fit the norm.
But remember, you are loved and should learn to love yourself.
Most of all, remember that I love you.”
The letter ended and it was signed by me.
Take time for yourself
Breathe like it’s your first time
Feel the breeze and enjoy it
Take it slow
It’s okay to do nothing
Why so bitter?
Why so dark?
So they splash a little milk or creamer to add a bit of colour
But that just ruins it, doesn’t it?
The aroma, the realness, the pureness
That’s what it’s all about.
So no, I say no to the sweetness of sugar
And no the any creaminess
I like it dark and bitter.
Ever since trying intermittent fasting, I’ve been into dark coffee. Been used to creamer and sugar that it took quite a while for me to get used to the pure bitterness of it. Now, I can’t get enough of it and prefer coffee as it is. How do you like your coffee? Or are you more a tea person?
Not all girls have curvy body
Not all girls are tall
Not all girls are sexy slim
Most girls don’t have it all.
Not all girls are unruly but also
Not all girls are prim and proper
Not all girls like frilly things
Not all girls are makeup lovers.
Not all girls receive equal opportunity
Not all girls have their voices heard
But some girls are rising up now
And will not be deterred.
I fell in love with you but you didn’t
So that was an opportunity we both lost.
You fell in love with someone,
I got hurt and bruised.
Eventually I moved on and so did you,
But you broke that person’s heart because you found someone new.
Soon after your new love moved on without you
And we lost touch,
I didn’t dare ask how you have been doing
For fear you might think I’m still hoping for so much.
Our paths once crossed but it seems it will never again
You and I, we try to avoid each other it seems.
Our story ends here
Or it may be a to be continued when we’re different people in a different life.
