Faded Calender; Faded Childhood (Happy Children's Day)

November 22, 2020



Scrubbing the graphite trails on the walls/ soaking the old calendar with soap water/ whitewashing those crooked lines, reminiscing when I used to raise my foot to mark my height/wiping the lipstick dated back to 2010/ scratching the Disney stickers form my bookshelf, which used to my mount Everest, commencing the hiking form first row to the top/ there was joy in pain and tears of laughter.

Air pressing hard on my face/pushing my sister's cycle to gain momentum/ putting her on my lap and happiness was in my bag/ now I am hanging out pictures on the walls

Running around the park/ sand in shoes/ waiting for the ice cream vans on Saturday afternoons/ park is abandoned and vans are no more there

Swimming competition in the bathtub/playing with bubbles assume them to fishes/ jumping into puddles and making paper boats/ I never feared that my boat would sink/ now I am flying the airplane of my dreams, sinking the boat
Wrapping myself in the blanket to stay away from evil/ drawing on my plate with leftover curry/ now I am washing the dishes just like fading memories

Popping the bubble wrap/ tingling taste of sour patches/ relishing the orange and lemon juice on hot summers/ Maltesers chocolate was my favorite/ sneaking into the kitchen/ snacks on early weekends/ waking up at 5 AM to watch Powerpuff girls/ standing on a chair to reach top shelves/ hitting my head, now I am embracing those scars

Sick leaves from school/ watching Disney and Discovery laying on the couch/ mum feeding me food/ drinking only from my special mug/ now I am picking up the shattered pieces

Disney had magic and the tooth fairy was real
Innocence was all that I knew
Now I am wearing mum's clothes and our shoulders are equal/ entering into the world of responsibility 
Now the calendar is soaked in memories, scarping it/ fading dates vivid memories
Fading childhood days

    Woah... a ton of nostalgia. This is almost like a song of a melancholy goodbye. Great job on this. I also love the metaphor of the calendar and the dates that are fading away. Don't we all wish we could be little people again.

    The nostalgia though, oh my gosh. This is amazing. "scratching the Disney stickers from my bookshelf" is so relatable. There's still like half a Tinker Bell sticker stuck on mine. :) Also how am I not following you yet!? I could've sworn I was.
