A wild fire in her heart Lightening in her eyes Yet there's a gag over her mouth And her arms are bound Her legs in quick sand Her steps uncertain and light
Dressed in black silk And the most expensive perfume Ginika bleeds From her ears, nostrils and the corner of her lips.
Skin like honey and smooth like egg shell Yet marked with traces of the heart's wound. Upturned lips tinged with the colour of pain . Paraded like the finest of masquerades. Head held high but the whole world on her shoulders. Her picture on the magazine doesn't stop the whispers.
Does anyone belong in this age? The 21st Century hi-tech stage, Teaching old dogs new tricks, All technology's deep magic, Hey, juniors, cut us some slack, How did we pass high school's flack? We had no internet to hack, Not one calculator in our backpacks! We had to use our brains for Maths..... Now it's the 21st Century age, We're all hi-tech citizens on this stage..........
I'm dumb because I thought I would be able to be in your arms on the day of my 21st birthday.
I didn't realize how much my 21st meant to me until a month ago.
I didn't realize how excited I would be to, hopefully, be away from sadness.
Last year my uncle died on my birthday. Last year on my birthday I woke up to the news that my family would be leaving for Japan in hours. Last year I woke up crying for my family, and for myself. I was crying for my mom who lost her father only a year before, her mother diagnosed with alzheimer's, and her brother lost now too.
I didn't realize how much my 21st meant to me until you said you couldn't come.
I didn't realize how proud I am of myself for coming this far, finally an adult (in the States). I was dumb to have imagined how my 21st birthday would go. I was dumb to have had expectations too early. I wanted to spend it with you.
If i had all the wealth and riches, I would buy you the world. But a simple smile on your face is what i would love to see the most. With little to say. All i have are only the best wishes. A beautiful day. An extreme blissful sunday. With uncountable blessings.
You deserve the best For you have always been the best. Passing through many life lessons. I cant believe you are 21. How hysterical of it all that today is the 21st. Knowing that there are many more trials to come. I pray that you never lose heart.
Hope you stop growing in height soon. But I pray you grow in every other aspects of your life. Happy birthday buddy. My kind Nunu.
