I don’t miss waking up early to get to work
But I miss going to work and seeing workmates who are now like family.
I don’t miss the traffic and the time spent confined in a jeepney for many hours just to get home
But I miss being able to go out anywhere at almost any time.
I don’t miss the over crowded places
But I miss the crowd of friends and families getting together.
I definitely don’t miss the pollution and would prefer going out to inhale a fresher air.
That was the old world,
Just some months ago.
The world stood still, didn’t it?
It grew quiter
It turned slower too
Maybe it’s trying to heal itself
In a world of online,
We become offline to the real world.
The world is not as cruel as they made you believe
People are not as selfish as they seem
And it’s never too late to start over
I longed for longer days
One that I do nothing but watch the sunrise and set
Sip coffee from my favourite mug
And let the world go on while I watch and do nothing
It must be exhausting being you
Always on the spotlight
Never able to hide from the world.
It must be awful being you
Not able to decide for yourself, not really
Always being told what to do
Because that is the price you pay in exchange for the fame they give you.
It must be cruel in the world you’re living
Because no smile or kindness shows on you
It must be hard to pretend it’s all perfect
When deep down you’re struggling to breathe and break free.
And when she smiles
The world falls to its knees
And everything else bows down
It’s impossible to fall
It’s impossible still not to
It’s impossible for him and I
We’re farther than the moon and the sky.
It’s impossible that we will be
It’s just impossible, don’t you see?
For our worlds are far apart
And only I know that I am the other half of his heart.
And under the moon I fell in love
With the world
