Eat Vegetable

Good
Essential for health
Best to eat

Grab a bite
Yucks!
Bitter!
But . . .
Forcing myself
To gulp vegetables
On my plate

Day by day
Year by year
Live with such taste
But . . .
At my twelfth year
My tongue doesn’t taste
Bitter vegetables

The fresh leafs of vegetables
Reaps delicious taste
Rich feelings of enjoyment
Crushing vegetables with my teeth
Tasting every pieces of it passing by my tongue
Before entering the throat

Upon interacting with Y Prior, Be With Us, Sharmishtha Basu and Toni Andruikitas about their vegetables consumption experiences (at my Body & Stomach Needs poetry), it struck me to tap upon my younger age experiences in vegetables.  It is a memorable event. Thanks to them for bringing out my memories. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Dread Weighing Machine

Unlike normal girls
Unusual among the common girls
I have the tendency of
Avoiding weighing machine most of the time
Dreading of
Standing on the weighing machine

Standing on the weighing machine
Dreads me all the time
Insecure feeling sips in
Fearing escalating weight
Tearing me apart
That’s me

Recently, I begin to lose weight and look slimmer. As I recount my feelings, this poetry is birthed out with the last two lines of the first stanza. I hope all of you enjoy my poetry and to give me your comments and opinions.

Kill physical bodies
Kill hearts
Kill minds
Kill into the core of beings
Kill feelings
Kill self-image
Kill self-confidence
Kill determination
Kill purpose of living.

Why can’t we take care
Take care the words
The words coming out
Coming out of our
Tongue and mouth?

Erupt Feelings

Shocking news
Disheartening news
Discouragement sets in
My heart sinks
Sinks down to
The bottom of dark hole.

Tears well up in my eyes
Attempt to hold it
Prevent to show it
Painful feelings erupt
Unknown its origin
As if knowing
My mum’s feelings
When she lost
My eldest
In a car accident.

Repeatedly
Continuously
Painful feelings erupt.
Hide
Hide myself
Hiding myself in a toilet’s cubicle
As my tears roll down
Roll down continuously
Pray to control
Such painful emotions.
Huge waves of emotions
Splash against the rock
Struck against the rock
The rock of my heart.

Before my husband took an aeroplane yesterday, he called me up around 3pm. When I heard that his elder brother passed away, my heart sank down. My friends and I had been praying for his healing when I heard he was hospitalized due to breathing difficulty. The news disheartened me.
