Life Scars

The faded tears of pain and hurt

The pains of labour rooms

The anger and frustration of taking care

The joy and beauty of being cared for

The joy of travel and food

The happiness is the happiness of kids

The guilty pleasure of letting go

The guilty joy of arguing

Everything from crawling kids

And even the neighbours

Everything in life has a scar

In a form of memory

Or even as an image

The happy scars and the sad scars

The only scars that never fade

Like those ceasar deliveries

Creative Writing Challenge :2 AM Photo

After a long day on Monday night we had dinner early watching Masterchef Australia and went to bed early by 9 pm.
Soon as I got to bed I fell asleep due to the weekday workload. I was walking through my house in Sri Lanka talking and playing with family and friends eating my favorite Sri Lankan meals when I herd my phone beep which indicated I’ve got an iMessage. As I grabbed my phone I realized that its 2 am and eating Sri Lankan meals was just a dream.
Smiling away the memories of my dream I open up to see who it was from anxiously to my surprise only to find its from my sister and its only a picture with no words.
As I wait impatiently for the image to download I quickly open my gallery to check the picture wondering what it can be, hundreds of thoughts running in my mind as I do so. Can it be a new dress she bought? Or is it a dessert she tried? Is it a restaurant they went to? A friends wedding picture? A new watch she got as a gift? Or can it be a cockroach she killed? Well what’s so important that made her send at this time of the day?
As I view the picture happily expecting something different and unique I was laughing all the way rolling on to grab a pillow to support myself from waking other members of the house as I texted her hastily thanking for her picture.
I know everyone else is anxious to find out what I saw, obviously am gona share the picture with you below.


On a chat conversation during the earlier part of the day she asked me if I like eating watermelon and I replied “yes”. She promised me she will send it to me and apparently she did send and am glad she sent it in a very pleasing way.
Thank you sis
