Who Am I
Daughter of Mary and Louis
(Named after my late grandmother )
My name is Charmaine
a name originated from latin
Charmaine means -a song
Eldest of two siblings
Wife and Mother
Born and raised
in the sun-kissed land of Malta
(an island in the Mediterranean sea
which is politically westernized
yet geographically in the southern part
of the European continent)
Baptised as a roman catholic
(with believes rooted in love and forgiveness)
Friends describe my personality as amicable and funny
(I love to laugh at myself to make others happy )
Till I get to know a person
I might keep distant , even act timid and shy .
Friends describe me as humble , yet I can be extremely stubborn.
It is said that I'm affable, trustworthy, and good willed
Honest, hardworking, warm and kind .
I describe myself as a child trapped in a woman's mind
A little girl who is extremely sensitive many a time.
I trust only with my eyes wide open
If ever deceived I erupt in a volcanic catastrophe
which fades in a short time.
I am a day dreamer, a night dreamer
My shadow is lost in the moon's eclipse
I float on cloud nine occasionally
without a will to return
(My X-mathematics teacher would obviously confirm this)
I am a hopeless romantic
( Cold Unromantics may find me challenging or boring ).
I am scared of rejection, and abhore prejudice .
I hate hypocracy, medriocracy, and burocracy.
I shed my blood for democracy.
I believe in freedom of speech until
that speech won't provoke the freedom of rights.
I am against fundamentalizm, extremism
and anything that suffocates 'the voice' .
I condemn divisions between rich and poor.
I love life, and all that is beautiful.
I love birds, animals and flowers
I love mountains, rivers,ocean , and all mother nature
I love exploring the world , and all that is adventurous .
I am a loyal follower of Maldena
Gandhi , Mother Theresa, and Martin Luther king.
I love cooking, art , music, and words.
I love reading a good book, watching a great movie
(Preferably with tishoos in one hand, and chocolate in the other ).
I love sailing away from concrete worlds, far from buzzling sounds of nightlife.
I love all seasons, Spring with fresia's perfume, Summer with late walks
Autumn with cinnamon spices, Winter with Christmas-lights and snow.
(Ah yes,How I love Christmas ). I love all simple things , like a cup of English tea
I love making my house a home. Be surrounded with those that I care for
such as God , friends, family, or be in my own silence reading sweet poetry.
