Letting myself be myself

Composed on

Maybe it has to do with my upbringing, maybe it has to do with the broader Asian culture: For a really long time, I didn't want to and was embarrassed to acknowledge it: There are many stories that I wish to tell. Many futures that I wish to live in.


You know.

It's kind of weird.

But being able to acknowledge my dreams and begin to externalise and actively work on them is actually....

a huge relief.


And watching how kids let their curiosity drive them

is just

I've been spending more time in parks lately.

So, for as long as I can, and for as much as I can,

I will try my best in letting the joy overcome my fear

and breathe life into the wishes


with people that I admire, love, and care about
