Blind

She walks around carrying a memory in her pocket. It weighs like a child steadily growing every day. It's worth however, is questionable. Is it comparable to the world or to a penny? Sometimes, it's more precious than the most valuable gem. But, all that glitters is not gold.

It's a pair of hands that covers her eyes and watch her walk the streets blindly of the world. Rip off the blindfold and throw away that burden into the ocean. Watch it wash away. Watch it fly off your chest. Breathe. Walk away from your mistakes and skip along the pebbled path that is your life. Live. How else could you tell stories to your grandchildren? Don't merely stand on the inside of the mirror. Break through and walk through the day with others.

You're not the only who make mistakes. You're not the only one who wants to live only in the past. But what of those who are in your present? Don't they matter at all? Don't you hear their voices beside your ears? Feel their warm breath tickle your neck and enter the chambers of your heart. Let them breathe life into your lungs. And walk instead with everyone that's important flowing underneath your skin.

You're no longer blind.

I had to read this twice. I like this one =) Although it doesn't exactly have a cheerful mood to it, it makes me think.

@Richard: Thanks Richard. I'm glad you like it. The best stories in my opinions aren't just the happy ones but the ones that really makes you think.^^

This was spectacular. I read it over more than once. So much of life we spend holding on to things that are sometimes better if we let them go. It can be easier to stay blind to the world around us and hide. I think everyone can say they've done it.

I loved this.

@Eva: So true. It's so much easier to stay blind. But then its regretful to realise that you're missing out on heaps.
