men will probably be the most unpredictable beings among all creations. they wish and look for someone to share their lives with: to love unconditionally and be together as ideal as possible.
but ironically, they will never allow each other to reveal themselves in bare: to be vulnerable against corruption: for their trust to be betrayed and their happiness to be grabbed. thus, it is very difficult for most of us to take a risk in submitting our trust and love to another. probably because in doing so, we are stripping off all the defense that we've created and worn in ourselves.
but will it really makes us happy if we will just keep our walls upright? or is it even worth sacrificing at all?
i was walking home late last night. when i saw the police mobile doing its usual nightly patrol in katipunan. they always do this since there is no police station nearby. but i was surprised when the police mobile cross the opposite lane towards the side street that i was walking. i thought that the car would hit me. but it immediately stopped infront of one of the cars parked along my way.
the policeman raised something from his left hand and pointed it to the car. at first, i thought it was gun. i told myself that someone is gonna be salvaged tonight and the unfortunate me, will be the only eyewitness of the crime and my life will be forever changed.
then the thing lit. it was actually a flash light. the policeman was trying to check if there is someone inside the vehicle. but no one was inside the car. then the police mobile went from one car to another and checked whether or not someone is inside the cars parked.
it was actually the first time i witnessed this kind of routine among policemen. usually, they do this when conducting check points among moving vehicles. but this time, they looked more like a security guard inspecting inside a cinema house. then the idea hit me.
if you are living along katipunan avenue, it is probably impossible for you to see an empty street even during holidays or weekends. people and cars kill for a parking space here and families make a living out of being parking personnels. but if there is one thing noticeable among parked cars, especially those parked along the street at the back of the main avenue is that they always have atleast a couple hanging inside. and believe me, if there are people inside, there is definitely an action as well.
for more than two years staying here, i have already seen couples kissing, crying, arguing, sleeping and even making out inside their cars. it also never fails that for each of these scenes, those people inside would then pause from what they are arguing and doing once they realized that someone is coming: which actually makes it more obvious.
now, it just tickles my curiosity why policemen suddenly got interested in checking each of the cars parked in katipunan. but who knows, i might see the answer one of these days.
