There's So Much To Write About


There's so much to write about.
Of teen pregnancies.
Of your guilt for hiding the fact that your cousin got pregnant and you're the only one who knew.
Of your thoughts when the news was preached to the entire family.
Of babies growing too fast.
Of your worries for your cousin's and her baby's future.
Of review classes you don't go to anymore.
Of your formal review which might or might not happen.
Of your plans to work for the Philippine Stock Exchange or HSBC or Deutsche.
Of your plans to not settle in this city.
Of your apprehensions in life.
Of the fact that you're scared because you don't see yourself in the future involved with the current course you're taking.
Of fashion designing, editorials and sewing and sketching.
Of unanswered questions regarding your initial dreams of trying it out in the fashion industry.
Of what you really want to do in your future.
Of whether you've already figured out what you want in the future.
Of why you haven't figured out what you want to do in your future.
Of the candy-coated fact that you'll be spending Valentine's Day alone.
Of fattening meals and the realization that maybe you don't have a date is because your face is too fat.
Of missing falling in love and being loved.
Of whether you've ever been loved in the first place.
Of romance and the blush of roses of the 14th.
Of whether you'll ever have a Valentine date.
Of dying young and dying alone.
There's so much to write about.

    1. And yet, I don't know. Maybe I don't know how to put all of them into a composition.

  2. There is so much to write about but how can you put all those into words? Sometimes I think a picture can just say it all.
