The Impossible Dream

There are times, I want to give up.

To quit and to wail.

And I'm done.

I smiled at you not because I'm fake.

I‘m super ambitious really.

But I like my Philippines than here in Wales.

It’s boring. Snow is disgusting.

Now and then, climate is changing.

I shivered with colds. I wore a hot flush.

Scarf on my neck. Blue winter hat on top of my head.

I want to go home. I don’t like it here.

But I have no choice really.

I only have one Scottish friend.

Kenny. Tall and thin.

White. And always wearing jeans.

I wish there’s a Catholic church here.

And have a chat with Him.

Though I'm here, I couldn't concentrate.

Me. The only Asian in class.

Big and small.Always on white, but dark.

And I’m always lost.

Easy I thought. It is tiring!

Though you see me smiling.

I 'm hiding my true feelings.

I just want to remain positive.

I know it’s hard. Alone.

No family. No relatives.

No friends.

Me myself and I.

Learning things in hard ways.

An hour and a half of travelling. College to home.

I forgot to eat breakfast. No lunch. Rice at night.

Reading books on the bus.

Do assignments every night.

Hit the sack late all nights.

I woke up early in a blue morning.

Spreading both hands and a big yawn.

And I ate crakes with milk.

At first I thought everything was a dream.

I realised I wasn’t. I am living on my dreams.
