And when our gazes met,
that strange feeling
in my stomach
the thing they called
Prickle of excitement
is no longer there.
Doesn’t excite me anymore
just like then,
when you used to love me
and I used to love you.
Keep on your mind that you have to work for yourself alone, because whether you like it or not, in the mere future, you will be alone. You are born to be alone and that’s your fate. You are destined to be sad.
But you know what? You are strong.
It’s you who’s truly strong, it’s not the colleague whom you look up to because she doesn’t cry, it’s you.
You are strong enough to accept that your life is not perfect. You are strong enough to accept that you are all alone as you venture through the path of darkness in the world
with only one candle in your hand. You are strong enough to accept that people will leave you no matter how close you are to them.
All people, all friendship, all relationship are temporary and ephemeral.
You will conquer the world alone, you will die alone without anyone weeping on you. It’s okay right? You’ve already reconciled that you will be okay. Maybe it’s hard for them to decipher you but you don’t need them to understand you. Only you can understand yourself, only you can see what your flaws are.
And wherever the wind takes you, please stand sturdily and ardently.
You just need to breathe and wait for your last breath. For now, that’s the only compliment that I could bestow to you: you are strong to accept everything in your life.
and please, fight, even you already mastered the pain of not being loved.
“We can travel anywhere without neglecting our academics.”
There are two things that these people taught me as we conquer the world together:
1. Don’t stress yourself too much about academics.
2. Everything in your life must be balance, don’t focus on ONE goal.
They enlightened my mind that world doesn’t only revolve in academics and the meaning of happiness is more than receiving high grades. It wasn’t our first time to travel together and I know that we still have a lot of places to venture, foods to savor and multifarious things to witness. These people are one of the few friends I adore because of being optimistic and rational. They can still be blissful even we are in the midst of struggles. They can handle the problems with ease and confident.
A friend who loves to travel is the friend you can always count on.
Someday, we will travel the whole world with our hands and feet tied together. We will conquer hundreds of mountains to prove that all things are possible if we have unity and camaraderie. Time will let us meet the person who is fated for us. Eventually, you will build your own family and the thousand memories that we have collected during our good old days will never be forgotten. We will share the story to our children and grandchildren how memorable our college days were. Wherever we are, we will surely reminisce our memories together.
More travel memories with you peeps! I love you all.
