pretty little fool

i am still that little girl

who didn’t think twice

before shedding a tsunami of tears

in front of a tsunami of people.

i am still that little girl

who didn’t feel the need

to hide her upper body

(of course, i didn’t have a cleavage back then).

i am still that little girl

who asked the most random people

if they could give her a chocolate

or help her with her backaches.

i am (very much) still that little girl

who could share

her deepest secrets

with complete strangers.

i now realise that

at least one out of

the tsunami of people

i cried in front of

would come up to me

with a tissue (or a flower).

i now realise that

at least one out of

the ones staring at me

would look into my eyes

and not my (almost huge) breasts.

i now realise that

at least one out of

the many random people

would have my favourite chocolate

or help me with my backache.

i also realise that

at least one out of

the many strangers

would use my secret

to explain

the true meaning of life

to me.

      1. I thought you will get curious and search it. It’s a day for talented people like you, world creativity and innovation day, and then on 22nd it’s earth day (btw, I’m writing for that) so you can’t write for it, as all traffic will be diverted to your station πŸ˜›, jk
