I am a passerby.

Hello there, sir. You do not know me.

It’s been days since I saw you last but images of you keep on popping in my brain like an alarm clock.

You were braving the national highway with your amputated legs, under the scorching heat of the sun, in your dilapidated wheelchair.

As if adding insult to an already long list of injuries, you were carrying a box full of cigarettes and candies on your lap. Were you selling those? Seriously?

Oh, how I hate myself. And others who are luckier. We have no reason to complain because we have four limbs and more. Yet we always do.

I only went to the mall to eat steak on a sizzling hot plate that day but instead I came home with a lesson. Thank you, sir. I needed that.

    It is in our nature to be discontent about everything. We may want to count ourselves lucky after seeing that schuck at the corner, but then, envy for that bimbo up front wipes away our sense of contentment quickly.

      i don’t envy the bimbo but i do envy the pretty girl with the fat wallet. lol

      Yeah, or that stunning man with the biceps and the volvo. We envy him so much, we secretly hope he’s packing small, and is merely overcompensating.

      And that pretty girl with the fat wallet, we just want to confirm that her IQ is smaller than her weight. In kilograms.

    hey shatter, one question! what’s the story behind that cake in your gravatar?

    • ShatterShards

      That was my birthday cake, given by a couple of friends. The message “Cake or Death” comes from Eddie Izzard’s stand up comedy, which we love. Here’s a link:

    @shatter: alas! we live in an unfair world. those pretty girls with the fat wallet have brains inside their heads too. the questions lies in their humility though. hehehe.

      True. This world is unfair. Although, a world that is completely fair, though ideal, seems boring to me.

    @shatter: no point in living in a fair world actually. 🙂
