What am I ?
Amongst seven billion people in the wide world?
7 billion people surving , thriving or dying right at this moment
7 billion people who are living these exact 24 hours in 7 billion ways I have no idea about
And all i am doing is wrapping myself into a bubble of mine, a bubble of insecurites and dreams, flaws and qualities
overthinking my last conversation , anticipating my next weekend
all ignorant of the remaining 7 billion other bubbles.
Just the thought of it blows my mind and causes me flatters in my stomach
I wonder what witnessing just a part of it would feel like.
Then I picture myself back in the middle of the Dubai international airport
that goodness of an airport
the chaos is overwhelming
but the diversity in exhilairating
that airport , with all its glory , is some kind of a miniature of the world
people rushing , connecting , thinking and feeling
expressing who they are , where they came from and where they`re heading in so many different ways
the lack of comformity pleases me
I like different,
different is good
3 cute asian girls who look like they just stepped out of an anime are taking a selfie
a group of dancers wearing the same uniform are teasing each other while walking God knows where
a muslim family are having a meal at Burgers King
an asian couple having breakfa- wait oh God the man just split the green apple in half with his hands only and shared it with the lady next to him :cutnessload:
And I , I walk and stare , forgetting about the shopping as my joyfull brain is scanning all this beauty,
our eyes meet sometimes but the looks we share are blank & empty ,
`ohnever mind just another human i`ll never meet again, when is my flight again?` i can hear their minds.
And all my mind is shouting : `hello world , i have a loud mine up here too, and you don`t seem to give a damn about how much I worry about little things … and just like you, i have scars from the past and dreams for the future but here I am now , right here , admiring that thing that is diversity , thanking God we don`t all look the same , think the same nor act the same.`
Nope , nobody`s listening , I continue nontheless .
``We are all in this together, you know , in this maze that is life ,
and each one of us , the 7 billion us , is surviving it in diffferent ways according to everything that made them who they are from the day they were born ,
and there`s no right or wrong way to do it as long as you`re being yourself and not trying to fit in ,
for the sake of diversity and authenticity, for the sake of humanity and uniqueness ,
and in order to decrease the fakness and the comformity,
be you without being afraid of being judged or rejected ,
as long as as it is authentic and harmless , dare to be different , it`s beautiful. bye.``
just another brick on the colourful wall of humanity.
