17. Movie

Ah Seng,

I came here for a better life

I left my homeland, my family, my friends

Seeking a better place

You told me with your sweets and goofy smile

I work too hard,

I care too much

I don’t think about myself enough

You asked me,

“Who will care for you?”

I stand here in thin blouse and thinner trousers

But the cold does not matter

Compared to the chill breeze in my heart

I ask you,

“Who will care for me?”

Will you care for me?

But you turned away

And left me on the road

Amid tears, blood, and pain

It was fire you caused

And in fire you must burn.


Inspired from 1965, the movie in Singapore. I don’t want to add anymore in case the delicate language inside this is lost. I’m sorry if it seems so ambiguous…
