Those are the words to listen to regardless of what Michael Buble goes onto say thereafter in his song Hold On. Two very important words that we forget about in our daily lives. As we move ahead, branch out, delve into n go upwards more n more everyday, we must never lose sight of these two words. Two words that will keep any person sane throughout their life.
The age I am at is the most vulnerable of all. The deciding point in life. My choice. To go up or to go down. And both are scary. You usually come across the term 'staring down into a dark abyss'. I'd say u might as well stare up, makes no difference. A sandglass in a dark room without a grain of sand and you stuck right in the middle. Scary shit, isn't it?
Anyway, life's all about happiness and its fallacies. We just prefer the former and wish it to freeze it that way! Which we can't of course. Material shit has gotten to us so bad that it seems the only way out of every problem. Too bad we don't realize where we are headed. Some of us do and cry out. But then who cares about the Minority Reports? Disregard. Throw aside. There are others amongst us who realize where we all are headed yet give in to materialism. Its all about that. Cocaine, DMT, LSD, marijuana, morphine, adrenochrome, heroin, ecstasy, crack, opium, meth- give this list to anyone, they'd say WHOA! But that WHOA! can just come burgeoning out at two words- Money n Power. That's it. All that there is in the world. Two things men, women, clubs, parties, Governments are running after since forever. Once caught in the web, it's difficult to untangle yourself.
Our parents have been screaming at us to stop at every point and think out everything properly before going ahead with anything. But indirectly, at some points in our lives, they have just asked us to rush forwards. Everybody needs that balance, someone to shout into the people's ears "HOLD ON"! Two words to set the world right again. Isn't much if we think about it. But either we do and forget or we don't because we're just hungry for what's on the other side, never stopping once to see if the grass is greener or yellower.
The speed is increasing. Slowly but steadily the needle is climbing the curve. Its a beaten up buggy,this world, how fast do you think it will go? Sooner or later, you gonna hear a bang n a crash and everything will just stop. Tinker the parts at least before you press pedal to the metal.... Make sure the seats don't creak, the seat belts don't get stuck, the paint is fresh, all the little details. Ready, Set? Whoa, Hold On Hold On. Last but not the least, check inside the car, are the people inside ready for the speed? Make sure! Ready, Set, Go!!!

At this point, life seems a blank. Whatever I do just seems to lead nowhere. Its true I have always craved for the good life. And i do feel left out from a proper college life because of Durgapur. I tell myself that had I been in Kolkata, I would have done so much. But i guess if there hadn't been any Durgapur, I wudnt have known what is being actually cutoff from the world I am used to. Whatever the case, am sure, I would have been able to do something if I had been in Kolkata. Maybe not all that I had wished for. Just a bit.
