Don’t Stop This Train, Mr.G

I used to believe that my happiness depends on my choices. I was wrong. My nurtured logic, my ego was plain wrong.

I was supposed to feel ecstatically happy that day. But I don’t. What went wrong?

I thought that was The Day, that I had waited for these years.

I was living in a dream-like state. I thought I was living my dream.

Nope. It was their dream.

And it was my choice to make their dream came true.

Not that I selfishly ungrateful, Mr.G. But I did not feel what I thought I should feel.

Show me the way. Send me signs.

I remember I promised You, Mr.G, not to ask You to stop this train. Therefore, I will not ask for it.

I know those smiles in their faces happened because of me.

And what I want now is that kind of smiles, in my face, in my own heart, in my own life.

Don’t stop the train, Mr.G … I linger for some more. I crave for some more. I pray for some more.

“So scared of getting older, I’m only good at being young. So I play the numbers game to find away to say that life has just begun. Had a talk with my old man, said help me understand, he said turn 68, you’ll renegotiate. Don’t stop this train, don’t for a minute change the place you’re in, don’t think I couldn’t ever understand, I tried my hand. Honestly we’ll never stop this train..” (Stop This Train by John Mayer)
