Out with the old!

I went!

It was like just another place but somehow intensely different. A place with a history, one that spoke to you.

The sights, the sounds and the smells. There was an air of excitement, adventure, old days mingling with the possibility of what could be happening now and would happen tomorrow. Or perhaps it was nothing, a figment of my over active imagination that happens to work in mysterious ways at all times.

There was something. Can’t quite put my finger on it. It was the old looking brick walls and an architecture unlike any I have sen before. The statues, the cold wind, yet the inviting essence of times gone. The graphic visuals everywhere made one contemplate on the state of all that surrounded you. Each morsel made you feel like you are sinning…! The people around you seemed to be in another world, all wrapped up in their worlds. All enchanted by the captivating night sky and view of a pillar of piety in the midst of all the worst that one could imagine, such a contrast it was to behold.

I will go somewhere else tonight. I will feel entirely oblivious to all around me.

I will experience what some have and others crave for.

Adventure. Ecstasy. Pain. Excruciating. Numbness.

I shall not look back.

I shall move on.

For it is the experiences and new beginnings, new ways, new things, that one lives for.

I am done with the old.

Ready for the new.

Today.

Live for another Den tomorrow!
