25/07/14-16/08/14 these 3 weeks of my life is a period that I will never forget. I went on a trip with Girlguiding UK to do a service project in Sri Lanka. The service project involved teaching English to a school of children from a very deprived area near Colombo and also working on elephant conservation site!
Here are the top 10 things that I’ve done whilst being in Sri Lanka:
Tomorrow, what do you hold for me?
Is it a snuggy hug
a kick in the teeth?
Afraid I am to meet you
but excited I am to high five you.
Tomorrow, what do you plan for me?
Is it an endless laughter
a stream of tears?
Reluctant I am to wonder
but curious I am to know.
Tomorrow, what will you throw at me?
Is it a bag of creamy toffee
a tube of bogie-flavoured jellybean?
Hesitant I am to swallow
but prepared I am to endure.
Tomorrow, how are you going to treat me?
I’m telling you this:
However afraid, reluctant or heaitant I am,
I will walk into you-
death be the end of me if I don’t!
Today I’ve visited UCL and its main site is based at Gower Street, which is only 5 minutes from Euston underground station. Needless to say, the atmosphere is vibrant and most of all, the majestic architecture makes me feel like as if I’m walking through history.
My eyes were wandering,
until they set on you.
This was the beginning,
the beginning of stinging wound.
Like a moth to fire,
I embrace your burning coldness.
Like raw skin to briar,
I withhold my soreness.
