I walked silently on the road in the middle of the night, stars covered the night sky,almost radiantly, the cool wind blew, kissing my face, making my hair a mess, calming me, beneath my feet, fallen leaves from the trees cracked, indicating that its Autumn. I walked and walked. I had no idea where I was headed to, but tonight seemed darker than other nights, my heart felt heavier, and my body felt weaker. I sat on one of the benches in the park and observed my surroundings, everything seemed so peaceful and quiet. There wasn’t a single person as far as the eye could see, I was alone, Just like I always am, just like how I used to be, just like how I want to be, for the rest of my life. When I stared at the trees in the park, the trees that used to be so lively in the summer, the trees that had fresh pomegranate growing on them, were nothing but thin branches now and dead leaves. I realized one thing, is that even trees have their seasons, sometimes they’re happy and lively, so full of life, but on some days, they are dull, grey and dead, just like us human beings. Sometimes we’re sad, sometimes we’re happy, but someone once said that even sadness is okay sometimes, because it adds color to our life, it’s okay not to be okay, it’s okay to cry, until your eyes hurt, it’s okay to laugh and dance in joy, until your cheeks hurt. It’s okay, it’s okay Sadness Happiness Nothing lasts forever. Just like seasons change Our moods and feelings do too, so just relax and let it flow, let it hurt and let it go. But most of all, don’t forget, to live, because you deserve it. Photo credits: Syeda Iqra Azim
