We all die in the end right?
So… tell me: Why?
Why wake up in the morning?
Why make friends?
Why strive for anything?
Why try to stay alive?
After all in the end no one survives it – death.
So – why?
Why work hard?
Why fall in love?
Why do all of this if the end is inevitable?
They stare deep into each other’s eyes.
Then they lean forward.
Their lips meet. It is bliss!
Oh no! She sneezed.
Her cheeks flush a deep red.
That’s his response.
She almost cries.
But it’s ok.
He has a smile on his face.
Relief. Then joy.
She’s found the one for her.
They go again.
We don’t care about your money.
It’s only a bonus if you’re funny.
Our only goal is to keep you healthy.
We will love you unconditionally.
Why? Well… because we are family.
I was on my way to work when I overheard this lady say something just behind me. I’ve been mulling it over ever since and have decided to share it as a form of “food for thought”.
I have no idea what the context was but here is what she said:
It is what it is, you know. I can’t expect to be content every day. It’s just not realistic.
Do you agree? What do you think and why?
Joe: I can’t sleep. Help me.
Ayanda: Tell me about it.
AJ: Us having a chat won’t help you sleep and you know that.
Ayanda: Selena Gomez!
AJ & Joe: What?
Ayanda: Remember that interview on BBC radio where they had Selena and you said you could be a better interviewer?
AJ: That was a while back though mate.
Ayanda: Well we can’t sleep… so let’s do it!
Ayanda Joe: *awakes from deep slumber* Do you have any idea how much brainpower it takes to project a well-known character accurately? Worse off one you’re making on the spot while slipping in actual bits of your own character? I’m sorry but I don’t think it’s a job just the three of you can do.
Joe: “Just”… I guess this means you’re going to help?
Ayanda Joe: You know me too well.
I was definitely reaching there. No way I can produce a good conversation with self/ves as well as have a fictional interview with Selena Gomez at 4 in the morning. So… I’ll get to it just… eventually. Just let me take a short… little… nap…
Subconscious Joe: You did it! You son-of-a-brilliant-man! You’re finally asleep. You’re finally asleep. Oh, the things I have in store for you…
I think about you constantly.
You’re in my head incessantly.
Thoughts of you – necessity.
I know now that certainly,
You will be the end of me.
