Open your eyes

Stop and stare. At the world that goes by you. Turn around and notice what you have walked by without noticing. It was lying there in your path because it wanted you to see it. I’m on this travelator and I don’t know where it began or where I get off, but it just won’t stop moving. And time is moving past too fast. To my right is this life I want, with the trinkets and bows and pink ribbons tied around a picture of my perfect family. But I can’t stop to grab it now. Time won’t stand still long enough. I notice that my baggage is on this moving strip. I carry too much baggage every time I travel. Is it my nature or actually a significance of what I am blindly pulling along with me all the time? My shoulders haven’t felt relaxed in the longest time even though I’m not carrying anything.


What do you think this means?

It means you can't let go and enjoy the ride.. get a bike, do something rash, that will let you let go of that baggage, but beware my advice is as good as crap, because you will still do what you want to do .. so asking what this means and what i think really doesn't matter or does it? what do you think? hehehehe

the baggage is what you carry from your past to your future.. relax yourself.
your post to me is a strive between your heart and your mind... the life is short... live it.

Thank you guys for the comments. Well its just a random thing I had written in the last few days while I was totally under my blankets with a wave of sadness that cam eout of no where..
Life is odd ainnit. Although I do agree. Best thing is to live it to the fullest and not look back too often.

call up the best of friend's and just listen rather than speak..and you realise all are going through the same..and then one decides, heck i'm not going to be like this forever..i got to get a life..that self realization is necessary to push yourself forward

You ask the one with the trinkets and the bows and pink ribbons and you will get an answer similar to yours.
It is a burden we all carry, the burden of 'what-ifs'.

Sujoy,

The term has degenerated to a cliche but still stand true... The grass IS always greener on the other side.. and there isnt much we can do to change that thinking.

As humans we are accustomed to thinking that what we have is not enough. So much so that we tend to ignore the best things that are already here.

I thought random wasn't your thing. 0_o

When did I say Random was not my thing :)

It's in your profile bio. :)
LOL anyway, please don't bother that comment, I think I was in a fucked up mood or something. Which doesn't give me the liberty to comment any shit on other blogs,I know.

You write really well. There were like, SOME sentences where I could actually understand the deep stuff, something which is remarkable for me, considering I'm so not adept at understanding such writing. :)
