Do I or Do I Not?

Do I matter?
Or do I not matter?

Only to be a door mat
Or to be a floor mat

Is my dream unacceptable?
Only to be overwritten
Opinions are given to me to be listened

Is my voice unheard?
Due to my softness

My mind wanders
Aimlessly in the clouds

My legs wanders
Aimlessly between house and outside

Do I matter?
Or do I not matter?

Driven by the strong feelings of depression, I begin to question my existence. Questioning the reason of me being alive instead of my eldest sister who is more intelligent then I do. Her intelligence and strong absorption in learning are praised by my parents. And I know I am slow. Hence, I do my best in my studies. Escaping deaths thrice plus twice. I feel so tired of living and being taken advantage. Do I able to succeed to contribute to my family financially? Thank you for your time to read this poetry. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Bark to Silence

Woof! Woof!
Woof! Woof!
Turning head
Eyes scan through
Woof! Woof!
Woof! Woof!
Ears detect barking dog
In a unit amongst the block
Woof! Woof!
Woof! Woof!

Where? Where?
Where is the dog?
It barks
Do not disturb
My sleep

While my son, husband, and I walked home, we passed by a block. Suddenly, a mini dog’s bark was heard nearby. My son was searching the dog, but it stopped barking. As if the dog fell asleep so I explained to him that probably the dog informed not to disturb its sleep.

I Don’t Understand

I don’t understand
I don’t understand
Why people laugh at my actions?
I don’t understand
Why people laugh at my words?
I don’t understand
I really don’t understand

Do you understand me?
My readers, do you understand me?
Does my style of writing makes you laugh?

Blah! Blah! Blah!
Talking non-stop like a CD or Tape player
It will not stop unless press stop button.
It will not stop unless zip the mouth.

Talking as swift as the speed of bullet train
It will not stop unless stop sign.
It will not stop unless. . .

Oh! My ear.

My helper shared about her experience about her friend who asked her to keep quiet for being too talkative.

Sneak Comparison

Sneak Comparison

Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Shining a tiny torchlight onto the floor
As I walk into the bathroom
Not wishing to disturb
The sleepers around me.
Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Here, I return to my bed.

Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Quietly, a thief breaks into a house
Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Quietly, a thief snatches a wallet
Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Quietly, a burglar snatches a bag
Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Valuable stuff disappears.

Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
A fish disappears from the plate
Abruptly, I peek into the kitchen
Long thin black tail wags happily
Leaving from the window
Then it disappears.
Oh! It is a black white cat!
But we gives him a warm welcome
With cat food, licking from our palm.
And he returns as a friend
And he returns as a playmate.
Fun to be with.

Suddenly, “sneak” spoke to me and reminded me of staying in my uncle’s house with my family. My family and I slept in the same room. So I need to sneak in order not to disturb their sleep. In other words, sneak is either used correctly or being abused for the selfish motive. Happosai in the Ranma 1/2 is a sneaky thief. Out of a sudden, I remembered a cat stealing food from the rubbish bin during my family’s stay at my uncle’s house before I purchase a house. Finally, the cat becomes our good friend knowing we care.
