Open eyes, restless night, heavy heart. There are small dreams in burdened minds that dare to grow. There is insanity in everyone. A ray of sunlight in dark rooms ignites hope and leaves. A smell of dampness reminds us that there is nothing more we yearn for. Dreams, sunlight, smell. There is madness in everyone. This is the madness that connects us with each other. We are not tired, we have not stopped. We have not become lifeless yet. Because there is madness in everyone. We are in this race to grab our degrees and stay ahead of the crowd.
Life gives us several opportunities. The question isn’t how well we succeed in it or how we never utilised it. The questions are whether we value the sacrifices of the people who led our path to that opportunity and whether we remain worthy after the fulfilment of that opportunity. Every person is undervalued in front of the other. The perception we have about people is surfaced and not what remains beneath. It indeed is a fact and we can’t deny it because we never try to uncover the emotions that lie beneath. A person may seem simple from the outside but we can never tell if it’s the same from the inside. We are very engulfed in achieving and looking for what we want that we often forget the faces of those people who make us whole, the ones who have expectations from us. Time and again we take them for granted. The person we are today and the things we have achieved today isn’t the only fruit of our hard work. There is always at least a person behind our achievements. They may not be present in the limelight but they are always there behind us and we fail to uncover their hidden emotions towards us.
It is so easy to keep moving on. Only if we were moving and rest everything is still. In the beginning, everyone wants to start from the beginning and have the best start. But lose courage till they reach the end. Although it started with pomp and show as per our wish we are not interested in how it ends. We never wonder what will happen at the end whether or not it will be as much as we had hoped for. All we care for is to achieve what we hope. We sacrifice everyone and everything behind and when we finally have it all, the real judgement will be if it was worth leaving everyone behind. “While accomplishing difficult jungles and high mountains when we win the last peak when we feel there is no difference left between you and the roughness of those stones that we won. When we will bear the first storm of ice on our forehead and we will not tremble then you will find that there is no difference in winning everything. And not losing hope till the end.” The truth is, it won’t be worth succeeding at all because we won’t have anyone to share our achievement with.
