I overthink, self-loathe, and procrastinate (a lot), but I also make art.

Message from Writer

I was born in Malaysia but I currently live in Singapore; I've moved quite a lot in my few years here on Earth and am very grateful for it. I usually produce poems and short prose (essays here are mostly done for school) when the urge to write arises from the ever-present emotions I experience through life (duh). This urge gnaws at me and it can't be ignored, whatever becomes of it are the words I bare on this page. Explore them if you will.

The Growth of An Individual Mind

Within the weeds as tall as I awaits
a snail whose shell I spiral down, towards
mere darkness against darkness, till Orion’s

beneath the feet, that’s carried by the will
of longshore drifts, I oft had to be plucked 
from shifting sandbars. Oh, I too, am like
a pea laid under a princess's mat- ...

The Doomed Youth

FREE WRITING

I, the amaranthine adolescent,
prancing in Prada, a scarlet harlot, hate
to say that that mopped melange, nay,
that debacle of a do
belongs to a zoo. You
Tube plays an euphony, unanimous
with the beat within my internal xylophone.
Known to own no volition to do much, as
gelato is allowed to obtund the will
to do anything except consume kale in kilos.

The aged must think this be borne of idiocy, but ...

Awaking

PROMPT: Forward Backward

I roll out of bed
half asleep,
thinking about how I can't change the world

I won't make any impact
even if I leave my room
I can't say
let me be the difference I want to see
and expect things to get better

just do nothing
beacuse in this short life, you musn't
have high hopes

I tap, I ride, I climb, and I walk
Past pedestrians, past trees, past apartment blocks
Through malls, through stalls, through doorways that talk
To reach a stir-fried meal served straight from a wok.
