Poem: Confessions of A Girl


With herself at twenty, she realize
That life is vast, too arduous to summarize
Unbeknownst, transition occured rapidly
She was urbane then, now she defies the world madly

Twenty years, she have had just enough or so
She wanted to cease but something is urging her to go
She is not faultless, yet she is trying to be good
Still not heard, often misunderstood
Miseries never fail to cross her way
How she desired happiness will forever stay

She have sought for acceptance, not rejection
She is living in accordance to people's expectations
She feels alone despite she is in a crowd
She have excelled, were they really proud?

She grew in the world with her own hands
She have struggled to discover where she really stands
She have landed on the ground and have reached the peak
She seemed strong although she is still honestly weak
She may appeal clumsy with unstable personality
Immature, irresponsible and unwitty
But she says, "If you take time and sit with me,
You will happen on that there is more that just what you see."

She have fears but she is confused where to seek shield
They gave her wounds but she is unaware on how it could be healed
Her life is cruel at times and have brought destruction
She is tired yet challenged with her life's imperfection
This her story, this is her strife
And these are just confessions of a girl's unhappy life.

My Realization:

Juvenile years are indeed demanding and bewildering.  This poem I have written a decade and three years ago is a manifestation of the kind of life teenagers, possibly a greater fraction of the young population, are probably experiencing and struggling in their youthfulness.  But as of this writing, 13 years later, this poem reawakens a memory of my old younger self, of how inevitable life's challenges were and uncovers a reality of how my life has positively evolved 360 degrees from then on.

Fashionably Creative, I Am

" The truly creative person seeks to reveal and not to conceal.  They tell the truth about the truth." 
- Rod Judkins from the book, The Art of Creative Thinking.

Fashion is one form of the arts and so fashion is one outlet for creativity.  I am currently reviving what I used to be fond of doing - creative personal styling.  Many of my days for the past years were somewhat wasted, in the sense that I have suppressed my freedom of self-expression for personal style.  

Here I am now, catching up and exploring the umpteen possibilities I can exploit to reveal the creative person in me, through fashion.  I am breaking barriers, disclosing what is real, because I am confidently declaring that I am fashionably creative.

My fashion sense may seem atypical, unconventional, maybe unwearable for day-to-day, appears to be tainted with a flight of fancy, unpredictable - either in merrymaking mood or a stoic display of my favorite palette: black and white. But, that personal style extremely satisfies my cravings for creative self-expression.  

 I strongly desire to be an instrument for inspiration to other people, to help them bring out the truth of who they really are, fashion-wise and to motivate them to take off those shackles of hesitancy.
