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.
Everything is wonderful and magical in the eyes of an innocent child.
The world is fun to explore and you just want to jump and run wild!
Curious of many things, everywhere you turn is whimsical.
In awe with a lot of things that seem astronomical.
You see beauty through your innocent eyes.
As for me, you are the beauty and it’s no surprise.
Sometimes I wonder…..
…..if I am significant at all
They’re all marching
Arm in arm
Pearly whites showing
He waits, excitedly shivering
Looking like Prince Charming
Or a knight in armor shining
His eyes, they seem like dancing
In the altar I arrive
He smiles as we wait for his bride
And I wonder
Would I look wonderful in white?
And I questioned myself.
I wondered what’s wrong with me
I wondered what others may have that I don’t
Had self doubt
I wanted to get away from everyone
I felt ridiculed
I was hurt
They question me…
I sometimes sit and just wonder
What became of us
We might not have found each other
Or we may have but made too little fuss.
I wonder if you wonder if I exist, if there is really a “destiny”
And if you do what could have been, had I chosen you
I wonder what you’d share to me
I wonder about your story
I wonder if your wondering why we haven’t or never met
Fascinated and mesmerized by the beauty so wonderful.
No matter how many times I see the sunrise, I feel I am always in a trance.
Why is it that I wonder what I feel I could be?
To do what I love and maybe love what I do
To be able to do what some are able to
To work buy don’t feelit as work
To pursue what I feel fits me truly
In this world of practicality
I wonder what might have been
Or what could be
If I do what I truly want
I look up to the sky
Wondering if I could ever be
What I wanted
What I dreamed of
Or will I be one of the wonderers
Always dreaming of what could be
A mind at peace
And the world too
Natural wonders and beauty
The sun rises and sets with always a new light!
Oh wouldn’t it be great if it were?
