Alone

I am living in a dream…

I think….

Because this is not the life I thought would be…

One day, I thought I would change the world…

But the world changed me…

Once upon a time…

My dream was to put a lot of time aside…

Just to speak to people…

To share feelings with them…

So that eventually, at the end of every talk…

There would be hope…

That in the end, everything would be okay…

There were days…

I smiled at everybody….

And everybody would smile back…

Handshakes were firm…

Good feelings were found in most places…

Before we were all…. in a hurry to reach somewhere….

And strike a deal…

They say the past is gone…

That a mind that dwells in the future…

Is a wasted mind…

That the present is now…

But I don’t want this present…

This time where I see so much mess…

Everything is incomplete…

I spend most of the time alone…

Nobody wants to talk…

Most of the conversations I hear…

Is not about ourselves…

It is about the mistakes of our neighbors…

Their downfall…

And how we will make then suffer…

‘Alone’ is best these days…

There is peace in solitude…

You don’t sin much…

Most of the time, your thoughts are pure…

You are creative…

It is when I think of….

How my dreams could be a reality…

Dreams of becoming a weaver…

A writer…

An excellent cook…

A farmer…

And…….

A good smiling wife…..

A good smiling parent…

Because a wonderful world….

Begins at home…
