Rotation: Rehabilitation Medicine

Sometimes you seek to grasp things beyond your reach. Sometimes you wish you can control the world's every turn. Sometimes you let go of a piece of bitter reality and pray that someone out there would replace this piece with happier days. Sometimes you venture into the unknown then wish you hadn't. For you realize a little too late that it would hurt bad. Sometimes you hover comfortably over your sheltered zone but still you wonder what life would be like out there. Sometimes you tend to focus on the intricacies of life that you take its simple pleasures for granted. Sometimes you stand amidst the busy crowd eyeing an unfamiliar face , silently admiring the view...then for a fleeting moment, you exchange furtive glances before getting swallowed up by the prism of the city. You turn 26 and you think you had it all figured out. But as your life unfolds, you realize that you'll never figure everything out. Because whenever the corners of your mouth start to succumb to a smile, the world turns its back on you. Because whenever desolation starts to engulf you, the world embraces you. You are a paradox. Everyone else is. The world is so messed up right now that it will take forever to iron out its kinks. So, while your lungs are still capable of taking in the air of life, enjoy the ride. You have no better choice. Who knows? Afterlife may be worth the long wait.
Just burping out loud.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it's still a beautiful world...
