She's buying the stairway to heaven.

Every morning I pass the same sights and sounds. I meet without really meeting people that are the same but different destinations. I'm so used to just driving straight pass these sights that even if something changed, the view i had would still stay the same.Its not ignorance.It is just monotone.

Every day i walk to the same class,study with the same people and do the same things. I live life in a routine.sure it can change sometimes yet when its over things go back to normal.


Then came 16 January 2008. When things changed a little more for the better and a little more for the worse.

Weird how life takes a change doesnt it?

"There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.
There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure '
Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder, Ooh, it makes me wonder."

Life has 2 paths we can always go buy. There always be choices. Am i making the right choice to say? Have i done what i can?Do I even know what i want right now?

Mysterious it is this miracle of life.

We sometimes know that the choices we make has major impacts in our life.And yet we still walk on those parts of our lives. We get caught up in the momments and we forget our sense of reason. Sometimes our choices make us forget who we are.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder, Ooh, it really makes me wonder.
And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter. "

Do you remember laughter? As a child when we were told of a pied piper who would lead us away just by playing his merry tune. Our innocense as kids when we used to remember the boogey man. Today i look at the courtyard and i saw all the kids in the world playing games with their friends and i long to be them again. To reserruct my childhood and to be able to run around with everyone else. Not worrying about deadlines and all other problems. To be able to have fun again.

"If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.
Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind. "

Is there time to change? I begin to ponder and wonder on that two phrases in the song. Is there time to mov on with life? Covering past mistakes and understanding and experiencing new ones?or has my life gone beyond all that.

"And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll"

Yes there is time. There is a life that i need to lead and to me life must go on. There is happiness and there is hope. There is a life I lead with all that i need. Here i am walking and wanting to walk some more. Wanting to shout to the world that hey this is life. Meant for the living. I have my answersright here right now. And yes this is life. Today right now,right at this momment.I live and breathe alive.

" And she's buying a stairway to heaven."
