How the world is against feeling numb!
The towering trees demanding awe,
The twittering birds crying for attention,
The fascination one feels from looking at a lake.
How beautiful the feeling of being in love,
How wretched the sense of being abandoned.
We live to feel the better of the two:
Love, fascination, peace,
Yet demand indifference when facing the latter.
How tempting the feeling of being numb!
To drown out misery in indifference and oblivion,
But growth comes from experience,
And one shouldn't fly if unwilling to fall.
