As i sit here and look out the window, I see the outside world, with which i feel disconnected. I am a spectator to these busy students and teachers. As I watch people below scurry to their next class, I wonder what life is all about. Is their an ultimate goal to it all? What is the purpose of being here besides 'living'? Sometimes I find myself thinking about life in general and I ask myself, Why is it so hard? Why is it so hard to live?... Today's society is so harsh, war and crime are everywhere. Am I the only one that sees things this way? Their are so many questions to life's story that i long to get the answer to. Who can answer these questions? No one. I have always been told that I would have to figure it out on my own, well to me that means that there is no definate answer. Everyone must have their own idea of what life means. Why am I the exeption? Why m I left clueless to the supreme purpose? I really dont know and I probably never will. I just hope that one day I might have a revelation and truly understand what it means to live.
Outside the window is a flagpole with the U.S. flag blowing in the wind. It causes images to run through my head and I hate what had to be done for that flag to wave. Many wars have raged and many millions of people have died over 'freedom'. Then I ask, what exactly is freedom? From what I understand it is the ability to do/say what you want. Are we really allowed to do/say anything we want? Yes to a certain extint. We are controlled by what is known as a government. A set of 'higher standard' individuals who choose what they think is right for the other millions of people in the U.S. The people of America have no say in things. We have no choice but to follow our 'leaders', just like a herd of caddle. I mean, don't get me wrong, sometimes they do make good decisions that help all of us but they make bad ones just as often. So freedom? yeah, we got it. Is it truly freedom? No. There are limits to everything. Rules and regulations must be followed, licenses must be earned, and taxes must be paid... Freedom is a great thing. This 'democracy' we have is a variant of what is known as freedom. I guess this is just another thing that I'll have to live with.
As I peer out the window into the adjacent building, I see a couple holding hands as they walk towards me. I can tell that they 'Love eaher other. Love... I've experienced love before. The crush, nervousness, shyness towards one another. Love is a beautiful thing... but their are two sides to that coin... Love is full of lies and deceit. I have experienced these as well. The heartache, the tears, the hurt... but in the end, love always prevails. Love can save a person from death but could cause suicide. Love is the most powerful force on Earth. It should be handled with care. It shouldn't be used lightly. It's meant as a serioius thing. Do you know what it is to love someone? I trust that you do...
So many things could be taken from just looking out of your window and understanding whats around you. This window means a lot to me because it describes life. Maybe you could find the answer to the questions in your head by peering out of your window.. Try it. You never know, what you might find..
Thanks. Please tell me what you think.
