Fame = 1/365.25

9 Dec

Temporal life, unmeasured joy
Then why cling to The Stranded
It may have been a better day
Had we not parted

Unapologetic, intransigent
Unmoved by words, unmoved by tears
Yet, emotionally inconsistent
Moved by all the worldly fears

Yearning for significance
You may have now departed
But it may have been a better day
Had we not parted
It may have been a better day
Had we not parted

-A

Oh Freddie, I know how delicious the cake is!

Oh Freddie, I know how delicious the cake is!

Although the ‘birthday fame’ lasts only for a day, it’s been only 2 hours yet and I already feel overwhelmed. Everyone I know (and do not know) is pretending to be my friend today. People I’ve met, people I haven’t met, people I’ll never meet, and people who simply want a bite of the chocolate fudge cake.

Nevertheless, I hope that this year turns out to be better.

    *Munches chocolate fudge cake slowly* We’re fwends, wite?

    That could have been a nice song. I can create all the right music in my head too. A cover for the album along with that, perhaps. You write well. I’ve never been disappointed by any of your blog posts.

      *Watches his cake being taken away* Fwends, of couvse!

      Oh, I made a song out of it too. Haha!

    Yearning for significance
    You may have now departed

    These two lines compose the mantra making the whole world go busy in a strange ‘ bey-masruf masroof-e-yat ‘
