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.

Ocean of Woe

Drifting aimlessly
On the vast ocean
Ocean of life’s troubles
Ocean of woes
Floating around sorrowfully
Nowhere to go
Wondering
Feeling lonely
Hoping to find
A destination
An island
Island of team-ship rather than competition

Passing by many islands
Many islands reject after squeezing me
Give! Give! Give!
All these drain enthusiasm in me
Wearing me out
Where is the island?
The island of mutual understanding and respect
Not the dead sea island

Where is the island?
The island where I can rest
The island of mutual understanding and respect
The island of truthfulness
The island of complementing mutual needs

Whenever failed attempts of finding a full time job after having a child for more than three years, I feel downcast. Am I drifting aimlessly in my job search? I wish to support my parents financially. Whenever there is time, I surf the Internet at home and reply to emails and comments due to financial restriction. Some bosses squeezed me and refused to pay me the little income for the work I have done. Making excuses and even empty promises. Only consider their own interests without considering employees’ needs. These really kill my enthusiasm in my work. Don’t I need to eat? Can’t I earn a living? Their motto is their own benefit. When they want to train me, they say beautiful words.

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!
Silence

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.

Birds Seek Shelter

Cloudy grey sky drizzles gently
The five birds are on a flight
In a search for shelter


Inspiration On: Thursday, 23 May 2013 at 6:40pm to 7:15pm

It was evening for me to go for a little exercise. Drizzling caught me and I was attracted to the flying birds’ chirp in the sky. Therefore, it began with, “birds on a flight”. Upon reaching home, the other surroundings are captured in words.

To Scare To Brush Teeth

Looking desperately,
Searching desperately
From the Internet
For
Children pictures
Losing teeth.
Wanting
Wanting to scare
My toddler
To brush his teeth.

Saving image
Printing image
Showing image to him.
Laughingly
He wants to lose his teeth.

Only with my husband
He explains
He reasons
Nothing wrong for
Our toddler happily to lose his teeth.
Oh!
I want to faint!
Oh!
I laugh!
Laugh funnily at my stupid mistake.
A stupid mistake,
A stupid mistake
Such a stupid mistake!
To choose pictures with
Laughing children
Without teeth.

Laughing children
Without teeth

A cute lion to scare.

My husband’s queries me.

Both of us
Laugh
And
Laugh
At my stupid mistake.

The reason I want to scare my toddler is to make him to want to brush his teeth. I have been having a hard time to make him to brush his teeth.
