Old Wooden House

By: alizabsinah

Page 1, The memories of a little girl house that has been demolished for the sake of modernization

 

That House

 

That House stood still

More than 100 years

Pre-exist before World War I

Survive World War II

 

As majestic as it is

The house aging beautifully

Seems like an abandoned place

Still a family live in

 

Just a shattered house

Build from old wood

Pests’ swellings the walls

Waiting to be demolish

 

The roofs are broken

Raining inside the house

Getting a basins for drops

For not getting wet

 

So poor as a family

Meat is scarcity precious

Anchovies the only solution

Feeling hungry every time

 

There is a little girl

Wondering of her ruined life

Pondering of her dark future

Bantering for joys of suffering

 

With her poker face

Always shines sweetest smiles

Keep laughing for consolation

Asking to be taken away

 

Looking from dull window

Miserable path ahead her

Thinking of being happy

Trying to be happy

 

Staring at her reflection

Saw unkempt appearances

See wept flowing eyes

Yet, still tempts for smiles

 

How hard she wishes

She can run away

Choose another road of

Being normal like others

Her tears has dry

Long ago knowing fate

Will not change at all

Of her miserable life

 

She takes her heart

Put it in a box

As hard as a diamond

And accepting her destiny

 

Promising herself

Talking to herself

One sweet day

It will only be a memory

 

Now 15 years has bygone

How fast time has flew

Reflecting her old pictures

Reminiscing her past history

 

Now, that little girl

Have brightest smiles

For she is grateful

Being the happiest woman

 

Life is hard Fate is tough

But she walks on her path

Alone with strong courage

Knowing she will succeed

 

Her heart for now

Has been taken outside

From the diamond box

Glittering beautifully like a star
