One fine morning, something appeared out of nowhere.
Zombies… It sounds disgusting, yet they’re swarming in numbers. They’re everywhere!
Always ready to feast and devour the brain of weak people.
You’re like them, a zombie. The fakest zombie I’ve ever known.
Whatever mask you wear, your rotten flesh speaks for itself.
The foul smell in your veins succumbed me and I almost felt helpless.
As if I’m trapped and couldn’t breathe.
You spread insults and gossips like wildfires and let others believe with your lies.
You must have been feeling very proud and clever!
The way you made me look stupid to others so you could steal the show
were like daggers slowly making cuts straight to my heart.
You even rubbed salt into my wounds so I could feel how painful they were.
You let me bleed until I ran out of blood. I could hear your guffaws that seemed endless.
You’re like an ogre! I couldn’t imagine a zombie with a monstrous feature would really exist in this world.
But I’m resilient! I bounced back stronger than ever.
If you think you’ve stolen my thunder, well you’re dead wrong…
There’re vital reasons why I survived the deadliest supertyphoon.
Why would I be afraid of your minging attitudes and fake smiles now?
And why would I bicker with your insensitivity? We’re not children anymore.
You might burn me with your cruel intentions,
But I always come back from the ashes.
As time goes by, I learned to choose my battles wisely.
In a way, your foolishness could be a blessing in disguise.
The unpleasant experiences you inflicted towards me have made my skin a lot thicker.
I kept all the bricks you’ve thrown at me as well as your sabers.
But I would never use them and cast to hurt other people especially the ones I respect.
Nor imitate your despicable actions to insult kindhearted souls.
I started building castles out of those bricks and
honing titanium shields and armors from your daggers.
Not only just to protect myself from predators like you,
But to defend others who couldn’t protect themselves.
I could have cursed you… But I decided not to.
Because… I wholeheartedly believed in karma.
What comes around goes around!
So whatever happens now and in the future…
I will never ever let you steal my inner peace again.
I will retain the kindness in my heart. The wounds you’ve inflicted would heal eventually.
I will try to be courageous at all times and conquer my horrors you’ve caused.
I will let bravery run through my veins with wisdom by my side.
More importantly, I forever cherish people who are genuinely supportive, caring and accepting.
I will be more open-minded, understanding and forgiving.
Finally, I shall always be honest to myself and grateful to the blessings I receive.
For the truth will set me free…
‘He who laughs last, laughs longest’. ~ proverb
I realized that the last laugh was actually mine…
I'm now reborn... I am a Phoenix!
