Trips

Left feet steps into the slippery bathtub
Losing balance
Whole body falls
Right cheekbone knocks hard into the side bathtub
Two hands push my body up
Wallow in pain of the aching cheekbone
Thank God my head is safe

I enter my left feet into the bathtub. Distracted with too much thought, I lose my left leg balance. My left feet slips and my right cheekbone bump heavily into the side bathtub. Immediately, I rub it and paralyzed by the great pain for a few minutes. Then I take shower. Thank God for the notion to pour hot water into a bowl with mini towel. Next, I lay the towel onto my aching right cheekbone. My son and helper care about the blue black at my right cheekbone and under my eyes. My husband doesn’t observe. Anyway, I just keep quiet about it. Does he really care about me? November house allowance is not even given. That shows he cares about his own pocket rather than me. I have been considering his feelings and care about God doesn’t like divorce. I am working on my career to earn income to be independent. Yet he cares only his mother’s and own opinions. In fact, I should realize it earlier during dating days on the conversation. When he knew my dad doesn’t fight for family inheritance, he mentioned that he will fight for it. That shows his security is in money.

Strange! Even though my husband has decided to give helper the pay, my helper still cares about me though I don’t earn much. It’s true that the way to care is being caring.

Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Looking For

The minute I left the room
Tap tap tap
Here comes the toddler
Like a magnet
Like a glue
Needing me to accompany him
To brush teeth
To play
To sleep

Knocking grandma’s room
Looking for “Mama, mama”
Looking for “Mummy, mummy”
Knocking bathroom door
Looking for “Mama, mama”
Looking for “Mummy, mummy”
Knocking my room
Looking for “Mama, mama”
Looking for “Mummy, mummy”
Peeking into the kitchen
Looking for “Mama, mama”
Looking for “Mummy, mummy”

Tap tap tap
Here comes the toddler
Like a magnet
Like a glue
Needing me to accompany him
To brush teeth
To play
To sleep

It has been a month for my 39 months toddler sticks like a glue to me to accompany him in everything he does. Therefore, such experience births this poetry and I missed my friends and wordpress friends.
