"THE LEAST INTERESTING"

How do you know you’re not missed? Try to walk away and disappear Who’s going to reach out to you? Seriously, who? You’re probably offended after being ignored It’s always easy to blame others for putting you to shame Have you ever thought of what you did before, countless times and more? What if it had been you first? What if you had done worse? Perhaps you’ve become the least interesting Has it been your only way to gain attention? Do yourself a favour; stop playing the victim Your bloat...

"WHY MOVIE SPOILERS DON'T AFFECT ME MUCH"

Call me weird, but this is true. When it comes to movie spoilers, I’m not easily affected. Yep, even the movies I’m eager to watch. This doesn’t mean I don’t try to understand both sides in this matter, though. You may consider my position is like a swing-voter in politics, while both sides besides me are against each other. In short, those who love spreading spoilers have their reasons. I get it, they’re so happy that they have finally watched that movie first. Through their joy, they feel l...

"YOUR SELF-WORTH?"

Never judge anyome ‘though I couldn’t help when you decided to ridicule me for being surrounded by boys I chose to call friends I know my self-worth not defined by the number of admirers but how I carry me around With or without anyone no difference Look in the mirror. What’s your worth? Do you only feel pretty everytime a guy says you’re lovely just so you don’t feel lonely? Not me. I don’t need to prove you or anybody. When love is meant to be, I’ll leave enough room for it out of my per...

"THE UNDERDOGS AND THE DARK HORSES"

I don’t admire all winners. Not all of them are true champions. Even if they play fair, some of them are not that humble. They tend to brag to the world everytime they conquer. Honestly, that attitude makes me sick. Some others don’t play fair when achieving victory. Sometimes the evidence is in plain sight, other times it’s hidden. How does anyone know? Either way, eventually it shows. No one can hide their shame forever. God sees everything. The humble winners are rare. Perhaps that’s what ...

"THE BEAST REVEALED"

Someday, all will be discovered He’ll be caught persecuted, like he’s always deserved Someday, his fake smile won’t work anymore All his fans and audience will get bored Not all people are stupid not when they’re willing to learn to look beyond Someday, all his masks will fall off At the sight of him, they will scoff There have been a number who have seen the real him up...close...and personal Better? Nope Someday, his sweet words will turn bitter his ugliness will take over The real beast...

"THE QUIET TRANSITIONS"

I remember someone I once knew back then. She’d once had some issues in one of her workplaces. When she was finally let go, she blabbed about that online. Some had sympathised with her, some others had thought about how differently she should’ve reacted regarding that. I also remember someone else I know. The same thing happened to her too. Despite the unfair treatment she had to endure, she decided to keep quiet about it the best way she could. Even when she blabbed about it on social media,...

"BEHIND THEIR SILENCE"

The world is becoming more of a noisy place. Chatter, chatter, chatter. Everyone’s got something to say, even when not all of them are talkers. How does that work? Try to notice some subtle, not-so-obvious cues. Those are the signs not many can really tell. Their micro-expressions, body language, gestures. The things they don’t say, but their actions and attitude show. You have to be sensitive enough to notice. Don’t Be Fooled Many still believe that silence means submission and agreement. T...

"THE MONSTERS WITH ALL THE RIGHT WORDS"

I met a monster who said all the right words sweet and convincing making me believe we had something That monster wasn’t scary He looked so lovely but something was sinister the moment you got to know him better It was just a matter of ‘when’ before he used his looks as a weapon a hypnotic voice, like a snake-charmer pulling me into his death-chamber How did I get out? A mixture of mind games before abandonment I shouldn’t have ignored my skepticism I’ve survived and made it through It wa...

"THE MONSTERS WITH ALL THE RIGHT WORDS"

Sometimes you know it, yet you (choose to) delay the inevitable. You do that until you can’t take it anymore or others give you the reality check. (Other times it’s both at once.) Most of your reasons usually involve others besides you, when in fact you should prioritise YOU first. “Taking care of yourself first is not always selfish. Sometimes it’s necessary, not just to save yourself, though. It’s to save others too.” Where and when have you heard that? The last time you did hear that was p...

“TO SOME, EXPERIENCES AND MEMORIES ARE MORE PRECIOUS THAN MATERIAL THINGS”

You probably wonder about this sometimes. You see some people loaded with money and stuff. They buy a lot of fancy stuff and manage to look impressive. They do want to impress others, while some just want to feel good about themselves that way. (Others want to do both altogether.) Well, as long as you can really afford it, then that’s cool. That’s your personal choice and responsibility. Meanwhile, there are others who choose differently regarding money. To spend or invest? You decide. The mo...

"THE DYING SPIRIT"

Like a vehicle with a quarter of petrol in your tank or the last 50 in your bank account Like a tired athlete after a marathon, groaning at another round Like an endless conversation with a narcissist who demands that you agree with them Like a weary street fighter noticing enemies at every corner when all they want is to just go home How do you explain best about the state you’re still in? The smile you fake, despite this restlessness Perhaps you need another vacation Should you carry on,...

"BEING SINGLE AMONG YOUR MARRIED FRIENDS"

Perhaps this is not much of an issue if you live somewhere else besides Indonesia. As usual, correct me if I’m wrong. If you have valid data to support your opinions and personal experiences, then that’s even better. To a plenty of people in Indonesia, this can be seen as ‘problematic’. They are also more critical towards single women, especially in their 30s. Many are still shameless when asking such intrusive, rude questions: “All of your friends are already married. What about you? When i...

"DE-VALUED"

“Oh, but I respect you.” While at the same time, you turn us blue keep us homebound, while you’re free to roam around. What humanity? We’re treated more like properties only seen at face-value though we have thoughts, feelings, and opinions too “Oh, but I do respect you.” Then why aren’t you listening? Why do you keep second-guessing whatever we say? You don’t really care anyway questioning our ‘rationality’ yet you demand that we do as you please We’re sick to death of your superiority. “O...

"THE TRUTH REVEALED"

My mother is one of the most patient ones I know. I’m not being biased about this. I have plenty of proofs. For starters, she can put up with a tomboyish, rebellious daughter like me. (I’m not being proud about this either; it’s just the way it is.) I’m like the female version of my father, always with a quick temper when it comes to injustice. It is no secret that I truly despise bullies and manipulators. (It’s even worse if they happen to be both!) Bullies, cheaters, and liars always refuse...

Questions with questions That’s how you answer Not much you mention, ‘though you’re such talkers How to expect you to understand, when faith has become a marketable item? Just big words in conversations, more polemics than solutions You’ve liberated more question marks up in the air, but they’re no stars no sparks, just more potential future scars Questions with questions...and more questions Trust issues are here Oh, so severe! Why can’t you just answer them, like common people do? Damn!...
