Hi Mother, Hi Father

Hi mother, Hi father. Look at me! Your first kid! Are you thrilled? Are you happy? Will you love me? Mummy, am I too heavy? I’m sorry. I’m sorry, Mummy. You’re gaining so much weight because of me. Will you still love me even if I gave you so much pain? Don’t worry, Mummy! I’ll be out of here before you know it!

Hi mother, Hi father! Look I’m getting older now. I hope you’re not fed up of me. I’m almost an adult now. I know I’ve been a burden to you for long enough. Long enough that you would think that I am not worth it anymore. I’m sorry, Daddy if I made you angry. I’m sorry, Mummy because I’m lazy sometimes. Even if I try to tell you what’s wrong, you never listened. I hope you don’t do the same to my little sis. I hope you listen to her. Mummy, Daddy, there is so much more than raising your child accordingly. I hoped you raised me with love and happiness, not annoyance and hurt and regret. Even when at Seven years old when you told me you don’t love me, I never understood why. Was it because I made you gain weight or was it because I am lazy or was it because I didn’t become an engineer like you wanted? I’m sorry Mummy and Daddy.

Hi mother, Hi father. I can see you from up here. I’ll always look after all of you! Sometimes you look up at the sky and I would wonder if you remember me. Don’t worry, Mummy. I’m happy here. Don’t worry, Daddy. There are no boys trying to go for me. I know I left early but I am happy now. The words you called me and told me doesn’t give me grief anymore. I am happy that you guys and my little sis is happy. I’m happy you learned from what happened to me. I love you, Mummy and Daddy!


An Open Letter to my Ex

Hi. Remember me? We had good times didn’t we? I appreciate them now. Dancing for the same group, participating in school plays together. I miss them..I was looking through some photos from four years ago.. the year we were together. Doing that made me nostalgic. That’s why I went and visit your twitter profile. I see you are succeeding in your aspirations and I couldn’t be more proud of you. Looking through your profile seeing you have already moved on, made some part of me hurt. Because of that, I realized you’ve already moved on, and nothing could be worse than that. I feel selfish because I am mad that I am no longer a part of your life, I feel selfish because you are already happy. Along with the feeling of missing you, I felt hopelessness. Hopeless because I know that things will never be the same again. I’m sorry I did this to us. I’m sorry that I took you for granted. I hate myself because we can’t even be friends anymore. I wanted to talk to you about anything and everything but I can’t do that anymore. Because nothings the same. Everything changed and we are not friends anymore. Remembering the memories we had, damn. I realized that I don’t only miss you. It’s that I haven’t moved on. After all these years, I am still hopelessly in love with you.
