The other day, I walked by the sea, admiring its vastness and wondering how many secrets it could be hiding behind its mask of calmness. After walking for what seemed miles, I looked back and saw my footprints. I had walked a lot yet I wanted to go on.
The sun sank into the sea. The birds flew away. The sky swallowed everything-the sea, the land and the faraway mountains, yet I wanted to go on.
That day, I never supposed that there would come another day in my life, when I would want to go on more than I ever wanted to. I did not know that, one day, I would be ready to trade anything if that meant I could go on a long walk, alone. Walking under the sun, not caring about getting tanned and not minding the time-I don’t know about others but I would like to spend an eternity under the blazing sun. Nothing can replace the feeling of the warmth of the sunrays that kisses my skin, while I walk under the bright sky, as if I own the world.
I wanted to draw on the sand and watch the waves wash away my name. The smell of the sea, the heat and me, what more could I have asked for but, the other day, I never supposed that there would be another day in my life, when I would want to stand under the sun with my hands opens more than I ever wanted to.
The other day, after walking by the sea for hours, while returning home, I met a man who changed my life. He was handsome alright and so full of himself but I didn’t suppose that I would never forget him, as long as I lived.
One moment of carelessness and boom!
If, the other day, he had only noticed me walking by the road, I would be, probably, walking under the sun, by the sea, at this moment. Only if he had been more careful, neither he would be dead nor I would have been crippled; I would be walking under the bright sun, not just watching it from the window and think about the other day...
