REALISTICALLY-SPEAKING: BEING ROMANTICALLY-CHALLENGED

They say life is funny and unpredictable. You think you always know what to do until you are faced with the unexpected. It doesn’t always come from other people or other outer influences.

                Oftentimes, it can come from within – which is yourself. You. You think you really know who you are until the day you surprise yourself.

                After that, you are left with more questions than you can really answer. Who are you, really? You’re a much different person than you were before. You didn’t use to be like this.

                However, people do change – one way or another. Time and space can change them in so many ways. It’s not always bad. Sometimes it’s a good thing, a necessity.

                Some people you know who know you too have noticed those – rather drastic – changes in your life. Somehow, your father’s death has started it all. You’ve acknowledged the fact that yes, life is short. You still want to do a lot, despite so little time.

                Will you be able to do that?

                Anyway, they’ve told you how much they admire you. After your father’s funeral, you took a new job. You moved to live on your own in the central city. You see, that’s still uncommon for Indonesian young women. They always talk a lot about getting married first or moving in with your husband – or sticking with your family and all that jazz.

                Well, you’ve gone past that and become more independent now, your dream life gradually is coming true. How about giving love one more try?

                Hmm, good question. We’ll see.

"SILENT WHISPERS OF THE UNHEARD"
2/7/2012

Once I gave you the signs
that not everything was fine.
The same still happen too many times.

More than once I tried to tell you
this has been more than just my 'nonsensical blues'.
Still, you didn't get a clue.

All those years, I felt like talking to a wall.
Every word I said bounced back like a ball.
When would you get that wake-up call?

So I drifted away,
pretending everything was okay.
What else could I say?

Now you want me to hear you out,
when I've already guessed what it's all about.
What?

It is time that you realized
there is only one way out of this:
Face the music.
Deal with it.


R.
