Listening to REM’s song this Sunday afternoon, “It’s the end of the world” made me think of the following. It’s ok, for it to be the end of this word. This world in which we live in that is full of hatred, apartheid, deceit, greed and so many other negative qualities that I just don’t have the heart to mention. Seriously, I’m ok with this world vanishing into thin air. Really, I am. I am if it brings happiness, joy, love, and all the beauty that lies in the human spirit. How things are going, most probably I won’t be around to see it rise from the ashes when shit comes to shove, not as Karlina anyway. I just try to do the best I can while I still can, if you know what I mean. There are mistakes, sure. Many which have left scars that are still healing fill my battered heart. But as long as I’m alive, as long as I’m still here, breathing and living, I get up from the dirt that’s in my shoes and try to live the best I can. I live my life on my own terms, freely and happy, enjoying every moment, no matter what.
Hey, whatever happens, I have no regrets.
Bring on the New World.
