Here i am again,
Thinking about myself, my life, my career and my all...

Feeling so angry,
with everything that happened...
Be it within my control,
or not within my reach...

What am i made of?
Am i made from steel?
that can be so hard but melted with fire?

Why am i so hard?
So hard till i can't even understand,
How can i be so tough!
Is it from the learning curve experienced?
From broken home and broken hearts?

Why am i so fragile?
So sensitive over smallest thing!
Is it because i kept everything within myself?
Not letting anyone to share the burden?
Even when i did, i always ended up in disappointments...

Why am i so confuse?
So lost in my own world!
Is it because i have too many unanswered questions?
And no one care to understand the situation?

Why do i care so much?
As if i have nothing else better to do!
Is it because i want to feel important?
Or it makes me happy by making others happy?
A very close friend of mine used to call me CANDLE
i burnt myself just to see other happy...
But am i? Do i? Hmmm...

Why am i so difficult?
I'm not trying to be one!
But it seems like it is my middle name or something?
They think i enjoyed doing these?
Enjoyed making fun that involved my feelings?
They think i do it on purpose?
Purposely hurting myself?

Why am i not easy to love?
Cuz i know how much i can give,
And it can be very much and overflow.
So, it better be the one that i think deserve it
and fight their way to win my heart...

What will make my day?
Someone who can talk and listen
at the same wave length of mine,
A sincere smile, a genuine heart,
A warm hugs and lots of kisses...

Where will i be near future?
Will i be happy? Will i die in my other half's arms?
Will i be there for the one i love?
Will i hurt that person?
Can that person forgive me?

Do i deserve to be love?
I always think i will loves many people,
But they come and go,
I'll fills up the emptiness and the sense of longing,
Once they get their grips and starting the trips,
I'm long gone from their life!

Am i being punished for all the mistakes i have done?
If yes, for how long? How long more shall i go through this process?
If no, then why???

Why is it hard for me to love and be loved in returns?
Am i that bad till i don't deserved one?
Am i that difficult?
Like everybody claims!!!
Fuck them!!!

Sometimes, i just wish that i will just fade away!
Away from all this!
I wish i can say 'NO' to love,
I can ignore those feelings,
I won't fall and fall and fall in love
... and fell out of it!

It's too painful to face and go through it
Over and over again!...

So, to those out there!
Stay out from me!
I'm dangerous and mean...
Don't you ever come close to me
Cuz i don't think i need more than my family
I had ENOUGH!!!
And i always wonder and ponder
And keep wondering and pondering

... how does it feels to be different from me?

your tearful eyes mark the truth
countless teardrops washed away
countless sorrows melted away
every dream blew up in smoke

don't be too hard on yourself
i don't think you are difficult
or dangerous...

everyone deserve a second chance.. including you.....
and me....
