I seem to forget what day of what month today currently is
As everyday passes by the same,
I have no commitments,
No more Biology book to digest
No more failed Additional Mathematics paper to mourn over
I get to watch movies as soon as they release
and I went to driving classes
I faced the dreadful JPJ and got my license
but I don’t drive much because in my dad’s eyes,
I’m still his little baby princess (and I might crash the expensive car)
Till now I’m still working to earn their trust behind the wheels.
And there were the exam results that got family from everywhere calling
those wishing well and patting my back
then came the uni applications
scholarships, matrikulasi, upu- choose your flavour.
we sit hunched in front of the computer trying to choose which way should we lead our lives
when just a few months ago we weren’t even allowed to go to the toilet without permission
Some of us followed our parents wish
to become things that they wanted to be but didn’t
and abandoning our own dreams in the process
and some were lucky enough to get what they want
passing interviews after interviews
impressing every scholar by our wit and intelligence
and the amount of A+’s on our SPM slips
at the heart of it all
we keep losing friends
as one by one goes away to college and uni
and so will I,
in just a mere three weeks time.
so hello to the new friends,
and goodbye to the old ones!
p/s: UPU’s announcement is tomorrow, and I’m set on entering iium for law foundation. Please pray for me! Good luck to all other spm ’15 leavers! May the odds be ever in your favour.
