Haven’t I told you…that you weren’t welcome anymore?
Haven’t I made it crystal clear?
I never thought you would be that damn
Not to pick up and read between the lines
When you bid farewell….I assumed it would be forever
All the memories were vivid
The pictures captured it perfect
The contrast we both made
Everything was plain before you showed up
The whole thing were unblemished before you’ve ingress
The entirety were flawless before you rolled up
Can you blame me now why I hate you so much?
You were so minute that you wouldn’t be noticed from afar
But the intensity of the havoc you’ve caused was so huge that you almost made me cry
The scars and scabs are remnants of how terrible you were
Every time a shadow of you appear, I’m enveloped with fear
I invested a lot just to get rid of you
I saved every penny, in my piggy bank it all goes
I browsed every website, read every magazine
Believed all the hearsays…just to get over you
A red blush would surely compliment a lovely cheek
But not a red-to-black dots that made you look like a geek?
I know they would all agree with me
When I say that life would be a lot easier when you just get away
It wasn’t me who messed up with you
You rather think I took too much care of you
I keep you clean and fresh as far as I could
And in return you’ve done me nothing good
Is this the right way to repay a host?
I thought your stay would be transient…that I understood
I never thought you’ve come and go and visit me often
If that would be the case, I rather lock myself to confinement
A bright sunny day welcomed by a smile
Into the mirror I looked and there you are
You are my alter ego that reminds me everyday
That I can’t get rid of everything I hate or can get everything I’ve wished
Do you have a clue to which I’m talking to?
It’s not her my dear nor him or you
Our stubborn friend called by many names
By which all just mean the same thing
You called it pimple…your doctor says it’s acne
They say its comedones…zit…as they say
You can call it any name you want
Would it make a difference anyway?
Are you facing this torture? I know a lot of us do
How to deal with this unwelcomed friend is a hard thing to do
The reflection on the mirror isn’t that flattering
Your dream is still on its crease…of a flawless skin
If you just divert your attention to the other half of your radius
And extend your look beyond your horizon
You would see there’s more to worry than a single pustule
There’s more to be thankful than to be woeful
Bright up your day, live a life
Fill your bucket with hope and passion
When things doesn’t shape the way you want it
One day it will…you just have to wait
Don’t allow that red unsolicited dots on your face let you down
Walk with your head up…be confident…
Show the world that not a single thing
Would dissuade you to be a productive being
Beauty from inside glows the most
Coz it couldn’t be corrupted by free radicals and so it goes
Beauty fades in time as we aged
Taking care of our inner self is what we should do best
The next time you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror
And see that stubborn pimple….
Smile and say…I’m still lucky!
I’m alive…There’s a lot more reason to be happy!
