Summary

"Don't Ask Me Why"

I remember just like how we used to be back then,
I tell stories to you, not to notebook using pen.
How I was telling even the simplest things I could,
The happiest, the saddest moments and how I stood.

I remember when things didn’t go that well and right,
You were the one who’s there to encourage me to fight.
Whenever someone or people were picking on me,
You’re there to comfort me, and that’s all you’d ever be.

I also remember how things all ‘a sudden changed,
Everything’s different from now, I’m raged.
You’ve became something else, now seems like I don’t know you,
I cannot approach you anymore, what do I do?

I remember how you forced me to be something else,
How I did not do nothing just for you to see my essence.
You even kept on comparing me to everyone,
All my teenage years, I only want to laugh, have fun.

I remember, my ignored stories, I could just drop,
But you know what, I’m trying my best to keep this up.
Because you’re my mom and I want “us” to be back, see,
But I, I need and I want nothing but leniency.

"I remember just like how we used to be back then,

"Chris." That's the first time I knew it was my name. I saw you. You were happy, like the happiest woman in the universe. You're with my brother, Jacob as you were telling him what he should and should not do. The last thing I remembered, I was already five and studying. I became friends with Mei easily since you and her mom were close.

Back when I was a kid, I was so close to you. I was so lucky to have you and I didn't care if my dad's not around. I can't remember that much about the things we did, but I do remember how it felt like. All I knew was that I was happy whenever you're here. I cried so loud when you were going to leave the house for work, but then you stopped me from crying, saying you'd be back. You'd be back with something I liked, whether a toy or something that was really, really nice. You stopped me from crying. You always did.

Then I was in Kinder. I was in grandma's house with my cousins and aunts when they all talked about their crushes. I said I had one, too. I whispered who it was to you and you bursted into laughter. I didn't know why but you asked me if it was a girl and I said yes. It was Joy. I didn't know what crush meant that day so I just mentioned the person I idolized that time. 'Cause she's good at dancing and I wasn't. Now, I'm so embarrassed when I look back onto that day.

Since I studied, I always got high grades and was always the top one of the class. I was just a kid when being on top of the class became my priority. Because I wanted to be my brother who used to receive a load of medals every end of the school year. I wanted you to look at me the same way you look at him. I wanted you to be proud of me.


 
Hey mom, it's been eight years since you hugged me. Since you got proud of me, not because of my achievements. But because I was your daughter.
