Feeling bored looking at my friends,
As they fooled around playing the swings and see-saws,
Acting like children that never be adults,
I quietly walked away and mumbled to my friend,
That I needed to be alone by myself.
She gave me a knowing smile and gave approving nod,
I guess she knows me better than I know myself,
And I left her and the noisy friends of mine,
Walking quietly and begin my short journey.
As I was walking in Titiwangsa park,
I felt emptiness inside me - emotionless,
Heartless - as people called me that,
Don't know what to feel for people, and also I,
But I did not care yet I just walked away,
But is that a good thing to do?
Is walking away the answer?
Don't know and don't care - that's what I felt.
Now, I felt that my shoulders are heavy,
Like I'm carrying a mountain at my back,
A friend of mine told me to find peace inside me,
She said that is the only way.
Should I believe her or not?
Having no choice, I walked and walked,
Walking aimlessly in a big park,
Trying to have a peaceful and quiet moment,
And there I saw a beautiful lake,
That was as blue as the sky itself.
The lake was so beautiful,
That it shines so brightly under the sun,
That made my mind goes in a daze,
And took my breath away every second.
The lake was so peaceful,
That I could not hear a sound of its water,
That flows softly and quietly,
Under a fair and gay day.
I stared and stared,
As the water flows softly,
I curiously touched its water skin,
Which was so soft yet cool.
Again I stared and stared,
As I felt a sudden peaceful thought,
Coming to my mind without a warning,
As I slowly relaxed under a big tree.
After staring at the lake for half an hour,
Suddenly remembered that my friends,
Were waiting for me near the playground,
And so I ran and got a lecture from them,
Acting like mothers that worried about their daughters,
For they thought something had happened to me.
But I on the other hand - did not hear their lectures,
Because my mind kept on thinking about the lake,
So I just gave a smile and told them that I'm alright,
But then they gave me a surprised look and said I'm weird.
As I came home from my hanging out in the park,
I jump to a white sofa and stared at the ceiling,
And suddenly, I began to think of the lake,
That was in the center of a Titiwangsa park.
Gradually - beautiful thoughts came to my mind,
Of what had happened in my past - memories,
Ah, beautiful memories to cherish in my heart,
And so I dared myself to close my eyes to sleep,
And dreamed of sweet and peaceful thoughts of life.
And somehow, I thank the lake silently in my heart,
For taking away the pain and dullness in my heart,
That I now can be a new person and lead a better life,
And I'm happy to have found - the peace in me.
