Hong Kong Diaries – Entry #3 – ‘Growing Up’

Personal Blog

Hello everyone! So for those of you who donโ€™t know I am spending the first half of my final year of university in Hong Kong. I am documenting my travels on my blog and will update as often as possible. Please follow my blog to keep up with this journey and I look forward to seeing you around! โค๏ธ


๐ŸŽ Iโ€™m feeling just fine, fine, fine
์ด์   ๋„ˆ์˜ ์†์„ ๋†“์„๊ฒŒ [Iโ€™ll let go of your hand now]
I know Iโ€™m all mine, mine, mine
Cause Iโ€™m just fine
Iโ€™m feeling just fine, fine, fine
๋” ์ด์ƒ์€ ์Šฌํ”„์ง€ ์•Š์„๋ž˜ [I donโ€™t wanna be sad anymore]
I could see the sunshine, shine, shine
Cause Iโ€™m just fine, just fine ๐ŸŽ

When my nails have been gnawed to stubby, bleeding nubs, when my hair is greasy and hidden in a messy ponytail, when my eyes are heavy and my body curls itself into a ball of exhaustion, having been kicked around by life, I know something is wrong.

Things I’ve heard people say in London

free verse, Poetry, Small Poems

Wow, already more than two weeks in! For everyone doing NaNoWriMo, or trying to achieve any kind of goal this month — keep it up!! ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s been a bit difficult to keep on top of things as a student, but being a student means you also move around a lot. I’m currently in London, and so this poem was inspired by things I’ve heard people say around me so far.
