I walk, I don’t run
because if I do run then
I will run out of breath and
won’t compete in the marathon.
I talk, not silence
because if I’m silence then
I am holding every angry I have
against you and sadness in my heart.
I love, not play around
because if I am a player of love
I won’t be able to be a cool mom
in the future to my own mini-me.
I am strong, not a failure
Even if I’m a failure I can still
pick myself up and start again
from the beginning and focus.
I am a writer, not a singer
not because I don’t have a
nice voice but because you don’t
have anything nicer to say about me.
I have family, not friends
because friends come and go
but family will always be
there by your side no matter what.
But I’m hard to reach and
hard to smile when I’m mad at you.
Catch me if you can because
that’s what you told your friends, right?
That I’m fat and a lazy girl
but would you get mad if someone
tell your kids the same thing,
that when they cry, what would you do?
I don’t mind your negativity words
because I’m independence enough
to take you down myself.
I don’t mind you back-stabbing me
because I’m sure that you
were born to only do that forever.
if you can’t catch me, what’s the
point of spoiling me to others then?
