Not for the Faint – Hearted

With a piercing battle cry, I saw the sweet little girl in pink frocks slam her balloon down on the little boy’s head. I thought I felt the ground shake with the tremor of her might and force. A deadening “THUD” was heard as the balloon  landed on the turf of boyish hair.

The tough warrior, unfazed by the attack, stood his ground. He readied his weapon and gathered momentum. In a split second, he had executed a flawless motion of his own, swinging the balloon attached to the end of his stick, aiming at the little girl’s undefended side.


Revenge was complete. And the warriors, having completed a cycle of you-hit-me-I-hit-you, ran away, shrieking in laughter.

I stood rooted to the spot for a few seconds more.

Children and balloons are certainly not forces to be reckoned with.

The Durian and The Tree

Said the Durian to the Tree

If only you could see,

How difficult it is to be me-

To meet up to expectations

I never thought of reaching,

To satisfy desires

I never thought fulfilling.

These humans that put us here,

What actually do they want?

Amidst all their lofty ideals,

What will they save when it comes to the crunch?
