Listening to: Behind Blue Eyes - Limp Bizkit
Watching: Visions subside
Playing: Theme Hospital
It goes off without warning, a humble sneeze as you cover your face, the particles rest in your palm you let out a tiny prayer "Thank You oh Lord" why it comes to mind, the saying of your beloved. Each sneeze brings a new life to you cherish it... You wait at the stop not for what you intended but for what was intended for you...
The thought echos your mind as the wheels turn. Another day is alive another day is born just is it was before... but can you ever be sure of that?
The ringing didn't stop, you ears felt as if they'd explode with pain. Just for a split second though and it felt as if it lasted for an hour. The doors opened after the screams went on a flick of the swtich and the hydraulics crashed to a side, rushing foot steps down the tri-staired doorway into chaos. "Get up..." goes the voice in your head "... outside... GO!".
Sunlight flooded your eyes things went blur for a moment the ground still shook as that one enourmous bang subsided. Chaos on the streets, shards of glass raining from the sky you look up and the crescendo of reflections flood your view one shard to the next as they plumit on course. Take cover under the shade as you recall the feeling you just had. The wave going through you caressing you in ways so wrong as your heart begins to thump against your will. It comes again and brings with it shadows on the ground, windows from the sky the scrappers are falling apart. Closed shutters rip them selves up as whole displays and gallerys tear away. Apocalypse in the making...
The second wave did less damage but it was done none the less no time to wait no time to talk there's only one thing to do when a police officer comes up to and screams in your ear "EVERYBODY SPREAD OUT!! NO THREE PEOPLE TOGETHER!!". The wall of dust and smoke smothered in blood came towards you as it towered high in the sky turning from dust white to tar black in an instant. Shutters fall down as debris dance in the air to the pleathora of car whails echoing in the distance. The sirens come closer and closer still as people rush out of their humble offices no one's aware or would rather bother to know what you've experienced heck... why do you even care how can you say no one else has experienced it worse than you?
You were far from the epicenter, no it wasn't a quake it was manmade, a plague a diesease devouring the system from days long past. It was a moments time before you'd fall if not victim then under the shadow. It was a bomb yes a suicide bomb. You had to get away all those thoughts in you head you couldn't stay there it couldn't be safe keep your faith in your heart and move ahead. You reach a quarter of a mile off and another wave much smaller travels below you right after a muffled blow. You look back glory just where you were standing from across the street! The sirens have closed in by now the lights dancing against the sunlight in your eyes. Still can't stop need to go forward no one's going to help you for you help yourself.
Heaven sent the angel at the crossing ahead a quarter mile away you run to it's gates you clutch the handle just in time. Catch your breathe you've been through a lot look ahead forget what's behind there are new chapters to unfold new chronicles to uncover move on move on.
All the while you can't help but think what just happened was it meant to be? Were you to supposed to take the other route? Were you supposed to keep going? Who told you all that? Instinct? No, not everything is instinct somethings are governed by a higher power. Someone was looking after you, your Guardian.
Praise be to Him, you've been granted a new life...
I write this today for I have beared witness something I pray none I know off ever live to see. I left my home today as I always do to reach University at around 8 O'Clock it's an hour and a half ride in the bus to the other edge of the city. I reach the stop and wait for the bus to come but the one I want never does I get another one longer route but I've waited enough. I reach Regal Crossing on The Mall (most posh area of Lahore) and BANG 2 suicide bombs go off a few yards away the Federal Investigation Agency was the target it came crashing down. Moments after I'd left the scene another one went off across the road from where I was standing.
As a Muslim by faith I have a strong belief that God watches you everywhere. He loves his creation thus His creation loves Him. I have faith that He looks after me always today I proved my faith right... no... He proved my faith right!
