Musing: That's Not Anyone Else

This post is a tribute to John Nash who has recently passed away. I first learned about him through A Beautiful Mind, which then inspired the birth of That's Not Anyone Else. The inspiration that I felt was vividly galvanizing that immediately after the movie ended, I remembered typing up a storm of ideas and phrases. 

That’s Not Anyone Else

When that day comes again,
Being thrown into a storm then left abandoned
Revoking the pain that you’ve repressed
Darkening the world that you’ve tried to rebuild

I know how much it hurts…

Your cries for justice and mercy
Everything deepens when neither cared
They continue on with their glorious life
Pass you by with their judgmental glares
The people who are perfect in every way
Gradually your hatred against them grows

I understand how hard it is for you…

But dear friend,
Please listen to this story:

He can achieve what he wants
Live in a world that others desire
Possess anything and everything
This is what it seems superficially
No one knows he’s suffering internally
The illness struck him like a sudden storm
It deprives his sanity and left him–
An eternal uncontrollable madness…
Wreaking the world that he has mastered
Tearing apart his soul and mind
Isolating him from the rest of society
And leaving him to wander the world in search for his memories

Dear friend,
I understand…

Please don’t neglect yourself
Retrieve your soul and mind
Reawaken your conscience
Let go of the past and its pain
Try again and again to live this life
The world has so much more to give
Don’t abandon it

You’re always here in my thoughts and prayers
Dear friend…
