I am amazed

at my abilities. 

I never knew I am so strong.

Maybe, due to how I was raised.

My strength came out through all the wrong

circumstances that attacked on my vulnerabilities.


I have never seen people consoling

people who cry

in my family 

in my life.


Rather, they hide

their vulnerabilities

by saying that those who cry

are those who are weak.


But, I take pride

in being different from them

because I follow what is essentially right

and don’t follow cultural limitations

and stereotypes.


So, since how I was raised 

was wrong in most senses,

I have decided to re-parent

myself into becoming more human

than mechanical and practical.

I will henceforth take care of my upbringing 

through re-parenting

the child inside me.
