Anew

You feel like
the warm tingles of a relationship that has gone by
with liquorice hints of something that once
was altogether beautiful and captivating;

It is not easy to get used to someone new;
similarly difficult to get used to someplace new.

But promising it is:
the telltale signs are all there amongst
the paintings on the wall and the music
playing in the backdrop.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

It’s the most beautiful time of the year
Where sleigh bells ring (are you listening?)
And Santa Claus is coming to town

We’re all simply
Having a wonderful Christmas time
(and having a cup of cheer!)

So say hello to friends you know (and don’t know!)

Have a holly jolly Christmas! (War is over)

Go rockin’around the Christmas tree
and visit the Winter Wonderland

Well let it snow let it snow!
Deck the halls with boughs of holly!

Silver bells and blue Christmas?
Surely the angels we have heard on high!

O come all ye faithful
I wish everyday could be like Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas!

Ourselves

We all try
In our films and music
To capture and express
The human condition and emotions

Cos’ we don’t know them
We seek to unravel them
To reflect them in our works
To showcase them to ourselves

Though more importantly
It is simply because
We are afraid of them
As how we are afraid of ourselves

What we don’t know
Scares us
Particularly
That which is known to us

As ourselves.
