Walking through the streets I see people with rigid faces and stale eyes, life has been sucked out of them it seems, perished, blown out like the candles light and only the fleeting smoke is left.
Me? I’m just wondering, trying to make sense of it all, Life a mystery – not to be understood for there are no answers. Life isn’t a question, life is a reality, a dance and we need to learn to dance again.
I just wish to drown myself in silence to be born anew for this world takes its toll on me and every pair of stale eyes I see. Where is the laughter gone? Where are the tears? The heart silently cries as people are led astray into a desert of dried up thoughts.
Fleeting words flowing through their minds, imprisoned in themselves.. we need to break free, free our minds and let the hearts sing its song to bring back alive the human spirit.
I place one foot in front of the other, walking into a shop buying a cold drink to cool down myself as the warm sun is heating up the air. I seek shelter in the cooling shadow of a tree nearby. Sipping my drink and watching people walk past while the sun is escaping on the horizon to make room for the cooling darkness of the night.
I keep sitting there, seeing people walk by.. I smile. We are all people.
