Last Day Of My Twenties- 08/02/2017
Today is the last day of my 'Twenties '
It didn't start the way I planned it to be
Anyway my plans hardly ever works
So I suppose I'll just be plain little o'l me.
I always had the thought of not living long
I can't believe that I'm still alive and moving
In Twenties I bloomed and wrote a New Song
Because the love of Jesus Christ kept me strong.
When I look back, the people who are in my hubpages and Facebook
Have inspired me with beautiful stories, videos,verses and pictures
Made me smile with your sense of humour as I looked
Even spent time reading, commenting, chatting and listening to my stories.
The classmates, the teachers, cousins and childhood friends
The writers, artists, musicians, choristers and the Rotaractors
The Epals, the Penpals, the Game players and the newly friends
The Church family, my family and my writing inspirations.
I just wanted to say 'THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE FOR ME'
The kindness, the tolerance and the patience you have shown me
It's a bit sad to say Good Bye to my twenties you see
But I believe that knowing Jesus Christ is the best thing that have ever happened to me.
I don't know why my brother always tell me to do the most difficult thing for me to do. According to him I talk too much and his wish is for me to not speak at all. Well, he's nice, caring and very thoughtful, but he gets annoyed when I talk.
So I thought I better write/ type instead :) See my brother is my personal entertainer :) I just get a little bit carried away whenever he plays the guitar or the piano which makes me want to sing and I ends up being very out of pitch many times. His style of playing musical instruments are always soft and smooth. Even his singing is very calm and soothing.
Hello Thirties !!!
I normally write a poem on my birthday but this year kind of unexpectedly happened something else, a little overwhelmed by the thoughts I just could not find the exact words to describe it. So I thought maybe I could just go back to the day of my birthday and think things through and finally rhyme a bit.
It was a Thursday morning, just like every other day
But it was the day I stepped into my thirties
Normally as I have seen and heard in early days
That in thirties people are boring and becomes Very Serious.
So I call it my very own Super Thirties instead
Because Jesus Christ is my Light and Delight of it
I got three birthday gifts from my mommy dearest
Which I wore where I went for my part-time work.
So as soon as I entered I was wished by the colleagues
Sweet kisses, hugs from girls and firm handshakes from males
I was not at all expecting them to give me lovely gifts
One with a completion of odd things and other made out of glass.
There's this girl she's short and sweet with small lovely curls
Her hair reminds me of Bombai Motai and sometimes cotton candy
She's the Tea Girl who prepares the tea with sugar for us
Then she works, when no work, she's glued to her book like a wormy.
According to her she likes growing flowers and gardening
Doing it as a side business which is quite interesting
She listens, she advice and has a different way of thinking
She's creative and has the potential to do better in whatever she's doing.
Then the other girl is one of the most amusing characters
She has a great sense of humour, always friendly and nice
She's always full of surprises as she imitates the customers
I can't help but laugh at her narrating skills and intriguing device.
She's in her early twenties, yet she's quite caring
She think too far, even try out as she wants things to be done
She's observant, tactful, energetic and multi-tasking
At the same time she finds time to be cheerful and fun.
The Two Girls I work with :)
There's this uncle whom I call Mr. Laminate, Mr. Photo copies as he's quite patient
He's more like a fatherly kind yet mischievous kind of a person
He keeps the bookshop items in order and is a methodical agent
He's like a human calculator with the number multiplication.
The other elderly person is the skilled creative Graphic Designer
He's the fastest Sinhala, Tamil and English typist whom I ever knew
In his younger years for the papers he had been a writer and an art designer
He's happily married and every time he teaches me Photoshop and something new.
The two uncles reminds me of these two characters :)
There's a guy who is dark and very pleasant with a eye catching smile
He too is a young Graphic Designer and a fast Sinhala Typist
He's quiet, yet witty remarks he would make once in a while
His mother's cooked food is so heavenly and he's friendly and nice.
The other guy has small curly hair and he's tall
He is a creative video editor and a Graphic Designer
Crazy over an internet game and a chatterbox all in all
Who has an interesting appetite and he's a fantastic poetry writer.
Mr. Fax who is our Errand Boy, likes to go out and buy supplies
With his helping hands he comes to the rescue like a Knight in Shinning Armor
He's darker than others and got a big nose which is decorated with pimples
He dress smart and handsome and he's a little charming brother.
