      Who is that person in front of my mirror?

      I am opening my eyes in the morning, and I feel so tired. I am thinking of the working day which comes in just few seconds, and I automatically get exhausted …That’s the first feeling of me. It’s so sad, I am thinking again, while I am putting on my clothes and getting ready in a hurry. Yes, I will be a running zombie again.
      I am afraid the fact that I have to talk to so many people today…If I could…I would have stayed in bed, just to hide the emptiness under the blankets. Instead, the day is still long and torturing.
      I don’t even try to hide it any more. The sorrow, which will gradually evolve into anger, and then back again into sorrow is all over my face. All over my body. The lack of the ability to present a fake smile makes me cold; distant as well. But that’s what I want for today. And..I can’t stop it, and I don’t want to stop it. Right? Who am I joking? Of course, I want to stop it. I just don’t know how… yet? At least, I don’t forget easily; but this can be positive and negative, right? The big loss, the empty look trying to catch a bit of natural light, the anger, the self destructiveness which comes to the surface, all messed up in the head…
      Where are the dreams, the colours, the laughters, the music, the smiles, the hugs, the trips, the sunsets, the sunrises, the beaches, and the snow, to make my thoughts be peaceful in the morning again?
      I am thinking of the kid who had that vivid imagination, and l can’t feel it any more. I can’t see it any more. I want that kid back though.
      The eyes are the mirror of the soul…We owe to keep them open and bright.
      Look through your souls, find the kid who had that sparkle in its eyes once. Don’t abandon it, help it come back…
      Money helped people and situations create phenomenologically happy environments. However, It never brought real happiness and essence by itself. Those two meanings are hidden in the magic forest from which money, once was pushed away. Go to that forest and open your eyes and bare your soul. Fight for yourself, fight for someone, fight for something good, fight for…even if that ‘for’ is a small one. It will be enough. I will do the same…
