Imagine the Picture!
This was supposed to be a picture challenge but after I was nominated and I wrote a draft, I realized that I can’t take the challenge because same as I made many friends here, I also made many haters! But I decided to publish the story and you can imagine the picture I guess right? Even better because I hate rules and I love to break them! Or maybe it’s a new challenge like the hundreds created out there!
Why not? Hope you will enjoy!
It was a regular day, nothing seems so special about it until I stepped out, and it’s suddenly gloomy, weird and heavy!
The more I walk the more I see people acting in a crazy and weird way!
I saw an old man sitting alone in a chair on the pavement not giving a fuck about the world!
He looked at me and read the questions on my “anxious face” so I stopped and looked at him, suddenly he started to talk:
People don’t know what they want; few are happy, many are miserable, some are nonchalant and some want what they can’t have!
Why we’re here? Do we know? Is it worth it to keep fighting, and whom we are fighting?
Who created the system and who can save us from this system?
Is there any higher power?
We are slaves! We are not living; we are surviving and struggling to spend few more days!
We are doomed; we fucked up and turned this world into a big jungle!
Let’s hope that God exists, let’s hope there’s heaven, because certainly there’s no hell worse than the one we created here my dear!
Look at them! What do they get from ruining our nature and infrastructure, is this makes them happy? Better human beings!?
Robbing and killing is the answer? This is a big lie!
It’s a big lie
And a touch of sadness and despair was covering all his face!
Does God want people to suffer?
Do straight people only are going to heaven? Then why create the others? The hell will be so busy if it’s the case!
Look at this woman; she climbed the church asking Jesus about his opinion! Do you think she’ll have an answer?
Then he looked into my eyes that were fighting the tears
What do you want my dear?
I looked at him mesmerized and shocked, feeling bitter and down and I answered: I just want to be happy!
And do you know how to be happy? Do you know what happiness is my dear?
Suddenly I heard the police cars, I heard the firemen trucks rushing, the Special Forces are everywhere and I realized that I don’t have an answer to the wise man question. I realized that I don’t know how to be happy!
The old man smiled at me and could read my confusion
Then my dear try at least not to make yourself and others miserable!
We have too much misery in this world, try at least not to hurt and not to cause damage, don’t take sides and don’t fight your shadow! Seek peace and happiness will follow!
Hope you enjoyed, your thoughts are always welcome 🙂
