Journey to the unknown : Thailand – Sukhothai

To read from the beginning : Part1, Part2, Part3, Part4, Part5

I could not remember the last time when I woke up so early. I had to, to be on schedule. Even though the trip was supposed to be unplanned, it didn’t mean I didn’t have to be on schedule. I groggily looked at the phone buzzing with the alarm tone. It said 5:15 AM. As usual it took me a few moments to realize that I was in Thailand, in the new city of Sukthothai.

Death is but a beginning

He had a terrible dream last night
Dreams of death, killing and murder
Unsure of what it meant he looked
And found it to symbolize ending

Things end eventually, nothing stays the same
A way of life ends but never dying
For death is like a phoenix
Always reborn from the dying sparks

For when something completes, another starts
When a door closes, another opens
When a thought finishes, another comes up
And so sometimes relationships end too
And a new one starts

What does it mean, a new one starts
Maybe sometimes things keep falling
And you don’t know how to stop
So you let it hit the ground and break
And recreate from the pieces

That’s how life always is
Sometimes you let things break
So that you can take what you want
Add something new
And what you have is new
A sum total of old
Alongwith wisdom of years

Maybe that is what he was thinking too
That let this relationship end as it is
And then remove the bad parts
And add new thoughts

And create a better way of life
