I’ve been following Joseph Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer, Rush) on Instagram as I’m a fan of his work. I also like his community-website HitRecord. So on his Instagram, he posted this “April-must-do list” that one of the HitRecord member created. The list suggests what you can do or post on the website for each day of April – kind of like The Daily Post here in WordPress. The list suggested for the 3rd of April this – ‘a year from now’. Coincidentally, I have been thinking about what would happen a year from now. So, I used this as a bit of inspiration for today’s post.
I sit here outside our terrace and I wonder what would happen a year from now.
Will we learn and remember all the valuable lessons this pandemic has taught us?
When we look back a year from now, will we be looking back with anguish or anger or fear?
Will we be more appreciative knowing the difficulties we all had to go through?
Will we be kinder to each other?
Will we be better people?
I look up at the sky that’s slowly turning orange from blue, and I wonder what would happen a year from now.
The waiting was always fine for me
Always thinking it’s all just routine.
But it got me thinking,
“What if one of these days it wouldn’t be routine?
What if all this waiting will cease?”
I wondered this as I sat there
Waiting, like I often do
I often accompany my mom on her check ups. It’s all routine now as it’s been almost 13 years since she was diagnosed. It just got me thinking earlier though that there may come a time when the results would lead to bad news and I wondered what and how I’d react.
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes, a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king”
My last post was four days ago and I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything new. My brain cells are just not working well right now.
I can’t come up with a good poem to share, hence I’ll share a poem from one of my favourite authors instead.
The poem was written by Bilbo describing Aragorn. I love this one as Aragorn is one of my favourite (if not, my most favourite) character from LOTR (Lord of the Rings).
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien or better known as J.R.R. Tolkien is a genius in so many ways. He created his own language and created a world of masterpiece that engrosses generations of old and new.
I’ve just started reading the Silmarillion and I can’t wait to read further. I have been reading on some of the characters that Tolkien created and I am in awe with how well he’s come up with them.
As a guide to Tolkien’s masterpiece, I’ve recently subscribed to this awesome YouTube channel that’s all about Tolkien’s works. I recommend you guys checkout Men of The West YouTube page and checkout videos about character histories and other tales. I’ve provided a link below so you can check it out 😁.
I hope you guys enjoyed the poem. ‘Til then earthlings!

If you close your eyes
You will see more
More of the reality that you’ve been missing
Poets are mostly introverts
Whose emotions they pour over
They do not seek attention but would like the world to know they exist
They see beauty in the sorrow
Turn ugly into pretty
They cry silently though
Their tears they turn to inspiration to others
They are dreamers
They are poets
