And There Are Four

One

Not two

Three would do

Four should be more

Fun

Says who?

Loud chaotic days

Messy home endless laundry

Tantrums

Attention seekers

Rules get ignored

Deafening screams contagious laughter

Quiet

Red alert

Beware troubles brewing

Catastrophe about to begin

Teen

And Tween

Equally troublesome as

Terrible 3 & Snappy 7

Four

Just four

Already I’m floored

Four too many, no?

Just The Way Things Are

Self-belonging needs

validation and respect

mutually shared.

Being connected 

becoming uncommonly

rare in the real time.

Sustaining friendship

through social media are such

a blessing these days.

Fleeting happiness

lives longer in memory.

and ever lasting.

What Becomes of Humanity?

Nothing is shocking anymore these days

We heard it all before

Serial killers, sexual predators, suicide bombers,

Abusive partners, evil dictators, merciless militants…

A long list that doesn’t seem to end

With tyrannies and criminals making newsworthy items

Make us scream in anger: what the hell is wrong with the world today?

Wanting to feel safe but often showered with fear

By the unthinkable acts that are assaulting us senseless

Turning off the media for a temporary relief

Even then

Disasters rampantly continue to pop up

There could be one in our own backyard

At a nondescript location

Hapless victims silently praying for redemption

Such predicaments that befall the innocents

Inflicting them with bloody wounds and torturous souls

Permanent scars that resist to heal

Or untimely death just waiting

To end the ordeal

Oh, what’s becoming of humanity

Where is it hiding in this time of need?

Stuff

I have this little craving

That comes in a box of Roses

To pop each one and munching

Zero care for the impact it poses.

I have this tiny longing

For a South Korea holiday

Seoul- Busan- Jeju island hopping

Promising good times all the way.

I have an itsy bitsy yearning 

For Longchamp totes collection

Solid hues would be a go-to thing

While cherry blossoms are my obsession.

I have a wee bit hankering

Soul searching on a mountain retreat

Hiking, meditating, sleeping and writing 

But wifi free can be a real huge feat.

I have this strong wanting

A cuppa hot mocha with cream 

Forget the calories counting

Letting lose in this sugary dream.

I have a lingering thought

And it got to stop now

It truly really ought

To stop this stomach growl.
