i walked out in the streets of
a misty daydream
i stumbled on the sides of
a dozen dead realities
i saw many a men watering
roots of a dead tree
i heard a person die and
many people laughing
i met with an artist whose
art died in love
and i decided i’ll be going back
to forget about today
You walk in. The door welcomes and greets you on your way. There is a hallway right in front of you. Football, Basketball, Cricket, Tennis, and all other sports have there own entrances on your left and right. You turn to your left after going a bit further. The text on the door right in front of you says “Football”. As soon as you stand in front of it, it changes from being a door to your personal companion. It asks you who your favorite Football player is. You go down your memory lane and in the end, come up with a name that every football fan is aware of!
Your new companion shows you the list of honors your favorite player has ever received, making you proud of who you support. Then he asks you your favorite team is, and again, it makes you proud of who you support. What a feeling! Now that you’re filled of those great feelings, you are asked whether you need any assistance or not. Since this is your first time in here, you say yes. A person comes up to assist you, and this is not any ordinary person! He is the person who knows everything about your favorite game, and this way, he is the most helpful person for you right now.
Now, it’s time to see what was invisible for you till now. You walk in with your assistant, and the things inside just amazes you! It’s just the dressing-room you’ve always wanted to be in! Everything you can ever want to see related to your favorite sport in a single place. Whether it’s the equipment, the trophies, the history, everything. Past, present and the future at the same place! The adrenaline rush inside you tells how excited you are to see all this and experience this. But it’s not the best part. The best is yet to come!
You see these pair of newly designed cleats that you always wanted to get. But yes, it’s way too expensive! You don’t show that feeling on your face, but your heart knows that feeling, only if you had enough money for those. But this assistant you have, right next to you, knows how that feels. He’s been there, just like you. But you move on from those pair, and you find a one that you like, plus it’s also affordable. So what next? You try it on and just buy it?
Not gonna happen here Sir! You wear them, and if it fits you, your assistant has a surprise for you! He leads you straight from that dressing-room to the ground. Yes, you heard it right, to the Football ground! That feeling you get when you leave the dressing room for the ground, ah! So now your assistant tells you to be ready. There’s a goal post right in front of you and there’s some balls too! How can you buy a pair of cleats without even trying them in the real field, right?! You take a step back, and with a deep breath underneath your excitement, you kick the ball….and it’s goal!
So you like these shoes? Good! But wait. Remember the assistant had a surprise for you? It wasn’t this ground he took you on. It’s the pair of those shoes you can’t afford to buy, and since you can’t buy them, you can still try them, right? 🙂
It’s turning out to be the one of your best days of your life! Everything you’ve ever dreamed of is coming true. Playing on the field wearing the shoes Ronaldo and Messi are wearing nowadays, yeah baby!
Most will say what a great dream, but too good to come true. I will just say this, “It’s not a dream, it’s a vision!“
“Our vision is only actionable if we share it. Without sharing, it’s just a figment of our imagination.”
