chasing after the wind

“hei…, what are you doing”
she asked the girl
“i’m weighing”
said the girl
“what are you weighing?”
“ow…. so how is it”
“it’s heavy….this emptiness…is so so heavy”

she remembered a similar conversation she once had
with another weary discontented being
“……so fucking lonely.
everything is meaningless.”
she hesitated before asked “how come?
thought you just said you’ve reached your dream.
a bright star. friends, career, everything”
“dunno…but here i am. incredibly lonely”
she understood..really…
couldn’t offer any solution though.
she might know an answer,
but the answer was for her, might not fit him.

if you have a slightest clue,
how could emptiness exist.
how could there be loneliness
how could it feel like nothing,
when one have everything,
please let them know.

I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;
I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my work,
and this was the reward for all my labor.

Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done
and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
nothing was gained under the sun.
[King Solomon in Ecclesiastes]
