i lingered over her address. the last time i saw her was on this same vivid place, only that i couldn’t see her through the murky distance. she was amidst throngs of friends and priceless living treasures. the weather was overcast that day so i decided to keep what i wanted to tell her to myself. i was afraid that would be the last time that i saw her, and for many months i had the same regret sneaking inside my head. i should have told her what i meant to tell her… and i thought that was the last of it.
i was wrong.
i was somewhere around the hills of half moon bay on this sunny bay area weather. a token of her remnants were carved on the earth. i realized the last time i saw her was just the beginning. her essence slowly permeating through the earth’s tear-drenched soul that day was a telltale sign for me to come back. i tried gazing within me to see if there was something missing in my life. i then realized that all the troubles that i have seen in my life are worth nothing than the very soul that is keeping me alive and grateful today. i felt the cool wind blowing through me and realized that she heard what i just said. the breeze communicated through the surface indicating that she would be with us forever.
life is short. no matter how much the hurt and troubles, i’d rather tell someone how much i feel before it’s too late. repitition may defile sincerity, but i believe memories are made through repitition… and they relentlessly last within our memories forever.
there’s a time to be serious, and there’s a time to be light-hearted. however, humor and gratefulness are what keep me going through life’s challenges. i once learned that if i keep on focusing on the downside, the more i end up experiencing similar circumstances. thus, i don’t focus my energies on murphy’s law. of course i have to keep my reality in check, but it’s always great to keep myself on the lighter side of things. i’m at opportunist at heart, and there’s nothing wrong with it despite the storms i pass through. no matter how bad things go, you’d still see a smile on my face. i just can’t waste my time on situations that don’t do me any good, and that’s just me. the storms may come by the score, but when opportunities arrive, they also come in giant strides.
important message from batman: you have to be serious to get this message as we have to save the world.
