Wavy Ruler

Found
A fifteen centimetre ruler
With wavy shape at
Its lower line
Grab onto it

Scritch! Scratch!
Scratching his itchy hair
Brush! Brush!
Combing his hair

My son used ruler to brush his hair. The lower ruler had a wavy shape so he interpreted it as comb.

Among Empty Roll

Among the empty rolls cubicles
There lies only one full roll cubicle
Seeking relentlessly and found one

Before I bought groceries, I entered into the toilet. None of the cubicles have a tissue roll. Persistently, I looked around and found one roll of tissue. So I was reminded of finding a needle in the haystack.

Deep Buried Feelings

Deep buried feelings were kept somewhere.
Painful memories were left unidentified for ten years.
Not ten years, more than that.
Unknowingly, it was planted since young.
It was sowed seed by seed.

Motivation of study is from external source.
Motivation of study only comes from mother.
No inner motivation to do so.
No sense of purpose in life.
No compass to guide me.
Only my parents are my compass.

We followed mother to her chosen destination to give us good future.
We lived in an uncle’s house due to lack of finance.
With my own eyes, I saw my mother being bullied.
I wish to stand strong, but I’m weak.
I’m standing at the corner.
I feel lost.
Angry with my self!
Why am I so slow?
Why am I a weakling?
Leave me alone.
I just wish to be quiet.

A slight headache.
Someone came to my rescue.
It is like a Light enters my heart.
There is a sense of purpose.
I need to stand strong.
I can’t!
But in the Light I can.

A door is closed.
But He opens a window.
A window opens my mind to marriage.

With just a few words through written message,
My past deep feelings were dug out.
No, I think I found out now.
Now I found out what it is.
Found out the root cause to fear of marriage.
It is the very seed that takes root in my heart since young.
It shaped my thinking.
It also shaped my heart.
