i seldom see, a slipper or a shoe standing in the middle of the road. and everytime i see one i can't help myself from feeling sad.
what would it actually take for someone to drop off and leave
something once valuable behind? and how would s/he be able to go back home without the other pair?
it may be unnoticed and/or taken for granted, but the importance of foot wears are undenniable. in this bustling and rustling metropolitan roads, i know nobody who can go out of their homes without wearing one. some would even spent thousands of bucks and scan markets to markets just to find the perfect pair that would fit and go along with us as we walk through our daily lives. so seeing a slipper or a shoe in the middle of the road that once part of somebody's life, that is now dusty, alone, worn off and just waiting for something to run over it, just breaks my heart.
i emphatized with it probably because i know how it feels being left alone and for me, that is one of the most horrible thing one could ever feel and not even worthy to experience.
probably the reason why humans were given a pair of feet is to understand that we could not walk in life alone. not even move with only one foot standing. we'll be needing others regardless what the issue is. same thing with our shoes. without the other pair, it would be very difficult for us to walk straight and even go an extra mile.
if only shoes could feel and weep, probably MMDA are already pulling their hair off, thinking of another burden regarding flood control. fortunately, they couldn't. but the problem is, there are people like me, who tend to feel what they should be feeling.
come to think of it, what if someone is indeed intended to walk alone would he either continue walking, find his other pair or just sit there and wait to run over by life?
just another thought to ponder.
