Symbolic psychobabble

July 24, 2007 at 2:11 am (Craps, Useless Information)

As I drove home tonight, I looked up to the skies and realized that it was totally devoid of stars. The only thing that lit it up was the moon and the KL skyline.

I couldn’t help but to think that tonight’s sky symbolized my life in certain ways.

Over the years, I’ve met more than a handful of people. Admittedly, I do have quite a lot of friends, but a vast majority of these consist of the “Hi, Bye” kind or the “Hello brother, long time no see! (OK thanks bye)” kind. As a self-confessed attention whore, I do like walking into a room of people and saying “Hi” to at least half of them. It makes me feel good about myself. It makes me feel like less of a social reject.

But at the end of the day, these people are just people I know. They aren’t really my friends. I suppose that the right word for them is “acquaintances”, but fuck that. I’m not in the mood for big words.

Anyhow, I guess that these people are like the KL skyline. You can live with them and you can live without them. Hell, they certainly feel that way so why shouldn’t I. Right? Their main purpose in life? To add brightness to an already bright scenery.

As for my family and my close circle of good, real and genuine friends, I guess these people are like the moon. Without them, my life would be blank. It would be dark and it would be meaningless. Without these people, I would be left without a direction. Without them, I would probably die. But there’s always an eclipse, and while it may plunge me into a pit of darkness, it will always pass within due time.

I looked at the sky tonight and reflected on my life. The skyline will always be there. Sometimes it’s bright, and other times it’s dim. But tonight, the moon was as bright as ever. The old Chinese song said that the moon represented the heart. I think that’s bullshit because to me, the moon represents much more than that. It represents you.
