An Open Letter to 2013

Hi 2013…

2012-2013-pic11Yet another year gets smothered by its successor….. the world rejoices….. the hope that the new year will wipe out everything dreadful…. turn them into easily forgettable bite size memories…… don’t worry…. we now have the peace of mind of surviving another year… with many promises given that we could never keep….. with many futile attempts to be selfless…… we are ready to happily embrace you….

In 2012 we saw the world suffocate from unshed tears…. countless smiles were mercilessly shot down…. we witnessed respect and honor battered and bruised publicly…. yes it is true we have very short memories…. at least about things that don’t directly matter to us….

We faithfully and without regret forget the pains that others have to endure …. Dear 2013 you should know… our ability to discard any probability of seeing ourself in a victim’s place is indeed commendable… that could very well be the skill that always keeps us going…. that ability to forget and move on…. We know you must be smiling…. but that is true…
