Sometimes I wish I could be a singer. What am I doing, going where everyone else is going? My voice is fairly decent and I can sing but then, so can hundreds and thousands of people.
Anyway, what I really wish is that I didn’t have to be caught up in this maddening world where all I am trying to do is flow with the crowd. Its like I am caught up with a million people, all racing down a narrow street, climbing over one another and just scrambling along, not caring about anything else. And the street is too crowded, the sky is too far up; just a narrow strip of azure, miles high, out of reach. But what are we all scrambling towards? I have no clue.
Sometimes I wish I could fall back and let everyone clamber on ahead of me, until they’re far far away. Then I’d just lie down , right there, in the middle of the street and stare up at the sky and dream.
And when I said I wish I could be a singer, I meant I wish I could be one of those people who get to spend their time doing something they love and something they believe in with all their heart. 😦
Why is life so unfair?
Sometimes. I just can’t take it anymore
