Monologue #1


One day my daughter asked me
"Could I be princess, Mom? "
It was a simple question
A ‘yes' or ‘no' and it all done
It was not that simple for me, Mom
There will be much more to do
Before conclude all in a simple gesture

I want to passed your lesson to her, Mom
That happiness does not lies inside the grand castle
That marrying a prince is not a perfect dream
That all beauty makes-up and outfits are not ticket to heaven
That no one has insurance of future
That not all question deserved an answer
That even loves not last forever

I wish I could make them feel the way you make me feel, Mom
The comfort feeling of being myself when I am with you
The secured feeling whenever I share my trouble to you
The confidence feeling of telling you even my ridiculous fantasy
The loving feeling that you share through a cup of tea
The warm feeling of home in your familiar voice
The endless understanding for my shortcoming

Well Mom, the thing is...
I can't shade the selfish desire to be just a woman
I can't gain your excellence skill to run a paragon family
I don't have your angel heart to wipe their weary mind
I can't accept sacrifice is nothing but a willing act
I can't see the flaw as a part of the bless
I never could love them as much as you love me

But don't worry, Mom… I could assure you
I know when to turn the light off as to not blinding myself
I know how to differ dream from fantasy
I know that good listener prompt their option in silence
I know that encouragement works better than rewards
I know how to have fun and get my things done
and the last important thing mom…
I know how to show my gratitude to you, thanks Mom

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
