Believe


I walked with my eyes closed to know how far I’d go without bumping into whatever came my way. I could smell the rain, it’s about to take the leap of faith but the clouds looked too adamant, I saw them before I closed my eyes.

The first step was cautious, second a little loose; third, slightly reckless and I sped up from fourth. The first rays of the sun forced my eyes open, I looked around at multitudes of colours, the astonishing visible spectrum and the puddle I stepped in. The road has never been this empty, my mind never this serene, there’s magic in this world; I only had to believe.

    I mean, get this. You don’t see all of the colours right? Basically all this magic is such a small fraction of something beyond fantasies. However…there exists black magic for a reason =)

    You are fantasizing here, I think. Or maybe not too close to reality.
    Who can learn to walk with close eyes only after four steps!😂
    The roads are hardly empty and the mind is never serene..

        1. The road was brand new, not even six months. A few hours of rain was enough to mess it up.

    All it takes is to believe, but is that easy? No. And if it is, then it’s also easy to get disappointed.

    2. The light you see is an illusion. It hides dark thing.
