Of Boomerangs and Words
And altogether now,
au revoir exams!
Life lessons of one Amy Chuah :
Lesson 1 : Alone - It's okay, it's refreshing, it's lovely.
Drawing swirls of dreams, dreaming;
Listening to non but the fan spinning,
curled up with a book til the wee hours of the morning;
stripping without looking,
sleeping, laughing, joyously crying.
Lesson 2 : Express.
To the beats of the drum,
To the pattering of steps,
Into the mirror, reflecting you.
Your mark, quake the earth,
To the sky, Look up!
Lesson 3 : Boomerang.
Humorous monk in robes seated,
A microphone in hand, gesturing
wildly; challenging, luring,
words, thoughts, questions;
"Agree or not?"
Heads nodding, listening intently,
Believe or not?
"Like a boomerang,
What you throw comes back to you."
Lesson 4 : Pain
Leg's numb. Can't feel...
I love my family.
"Open your eyes"
Am I not supposed to visualize?!
