This post is dedicated to Sam and Nic, the loveliest people in my life. It’s been way too long since I wrote anything I liked, or anything that seemed like proper writing for that matter. But here it goes, my way of describing my night. Perhaps tomorrow morning I’ll wake up, review this again and absolutely hate what I wrote. But right now, in this very moment, this is a tiny little piece of my heart written out.
Thump. Thump. Thump.
Three hearts beating in sync to the bass drum.
Swaying to the rhythm of the unknown melody,
Endorphins exploding in their bodies,
like shooting stars in galaxies far away,
like fireworks bursting during national day,
happiness like warm rays of sunshine flow through their veins.
They break into smiles,
giving each other knowing looks,
“your heart sings the same tune as mine,
I now know it is you I need to spend my life with”.
For from this moment on,
their lives have intertwined,
like threads in friendship bracelets,
like links in metal chains,
A bond stronger than any hydrocarbons has been formed.
Applause breaks out.
The song is over.
The performance is done.
Yet, their friendship has only just begun.
It’s hard for me to write down every single thing that happened today, but I really hope I can remember it all when next year comes around, when the next next year is here, and forever more. I feel so grateful for this fortunate life I live in. Since I don’t really subscribe to a particular religion, it seems right to give thanks to (almost) everybody.
Thank you Zeus, for giving me these wonderful people in my life.
Thank you God, for blessing me with such great teachers.
Thank you Buddha, for letting me live and breathe.
Thank you FSM, for my family who have stretched their boundaries just for me.
Thank you Vishnu, for this country whom I have a love-hate relationship with.
Thank you, to you up there watching over me, for this fortunate life I live.
