A Marked Man
I was 9 when I stopped being smart. Mrs Chan said nobody likes a Mr Know All. I decided to be cool.
So I became addicted to Ultraman.
I was 13 when I stopped crying. Wei Jin said that I must learn to hide my feelings. I learn too well.
So I dont sleep much.
I was 20 when I stopped asking for money. I told my dad I needed money for rent. He send a cheque for the exact amount.
So I didnt eat much.
I was 29 for a long time. Some thirty year old said life starts at 30. But I enjoyed my 29s.
So I grew other ways.
I was 32 when I started my own business. An old man said you'll succeed if you believe in the struggle.
So I sold the business.
I am today for what I could never be if I was what I could be.
