Life VS Death

Recently I chatted with my old schoolmate in virtual life (facebook lerr…) and we talked a lot on our current lives.

He’s taking music in one of the local universities. Since I love music, so we kinda get far on classical music; piano, violin etc. How he too enjoys playing other contemporary instruments; guitar, drum etc, alright, there goes him and his life.

So when I told him I’m currently doing medicine, he claimed that suits me well for he only has the image of me being studious all along back in school.

You’re quite the nerdy type so to speak'

And he started saying how most medical students have no life. Uh-huh like I care, so I let him be.

I don’t know what you think about this, but here’s what I think.

He’s simply trying to imply that all we medical students do is stucking books under our noses 24/7, boring life with no fun.

You can say I try to defend myself saying ‘true the routine is tiring, but it can’t be boring all the time. I have my own way to literally bring me back to life’

‘Really, what is it?’ was all he said

But ladies and gentlemen, let the conversation ends here.

So let’s get to the main point. It’s true that I don’t go to concerts, I don’t join underground gigs, and I’m not that carefree enough to hangout with a bunch of reckless friends having fun till morning. As to answer why, because I love myself more. So I didn’t do this and you call me lifeless? That’s so ‘smart’ of you.

I don’t want to point to anyone, but let me tell this…

Ever heard of the word called death?

‘Death exists, not as the opposite but as a part of life’
–Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood-

‘Life is for death’
–Zawani Zainudin, Whatever She Wants-

(Ouh sempat wat lawak plak)

So by pushing death to the background as far as possible and living life forgetting the fact that death will anytime invite you is called life…

…is itself lifeless, don’t you think?

Please stop being the world's clowns, because death is laughing at you...



Ps:
To whom it may concern,
Just like the last email with pic went into spam box, the recent email with the so-called ‘violent content’ went in as well. But don’t worry, already marked as ‘not spam’. Honestly thanks, but what should I do? (winks)
