So today marks the first official day as the president of our organization. I don’t really know how to convey my emotions, without me ending up rambling on and on about things you don’t really care. Instead, I wrote these very short poems (they take the form of Haiku, but Haiku are much more complicated than this) to convey my emotions.
1. In one minute
Touched and thankful
Rice is in the pot
Pop! The button goes.
Do we have rice tonight?
Seize the day
Why look for a reason?
When the reason is right here.
The reason is you.
It’s nice to meet you.
Sometimes you wonder whether what you do is enough, and that is normal. But when you begin to doubt every single thing you do, then something must be wrong. You’ve accomplished a lot in your life. You’ve excelled far more than others, yet why do you sell yourself short? Whatever made you think that way?
Do you think I was born with this ideology? I was programmed to be like this for 20 years. I don’t just know it, I live it. I wish to blame you– the people who always put me down, who always does better in everything do, who see no good in any attempt I try to pursue. You! Who always compares me with the rest of the world. Will I ever stop blaming you- you who’s standing right in front of the mirror?
You can change. If you want to, you can.
Don’t you think I want to? And, don’t use the line “If there is a will, there is a way” on me. I have the will, and I will make the way. I have already proven that. But if others don’t help me make the way, I’ll be spending my whole life building that road to the end without ever reaching it.
Then stop looking in front of the mirror blaming yourself, and start looking elsewhere!
And get slapped in the face?! I am built to bite my tongue.
Be careful. You might bite your tongue off, and bleed to death.
I’ve proven that theory to be false. I’m still here aren’t I?
