Here I am, sitting in my favourite chair at my apartment, working on my computer very remotely, listening to my favourite music and sipping hot coffee in my favourite mug.
It is cold in here. I can literally feel my cold feet. This outskirt of Bengaluru is so open space that let the wind blow freely. Trees nearby make the weather cooler than inside the city.
Recently, I have been listening to Sweaters by Ivan B. This song literally gives me chills. The very first 2 lines tell exactly what I am looking for. The more I listen to the song, I realise it is not only about me. I have to help my loved ones too with their sweaters.
Well, life has been very cold over the years. It is unfair to learn so late that the world is unfair and cold. The world owes you nothing in return, only but to freeze your mind to a stone-cold. I also have been sewing a sweater for myself. But this is one no easy to sew either. Because you know there is no easy sewing machine for this sweater. There were times I was not sure about this hand sewed sweater. Because it gets torn off very easily. But I just want to live my life and not to give in to the cold. So every time I started again, although I can sew a stronger sweater it takes even longer than the anticipation.
I know, the weather is never going to change. Never going to be better. Even if I complete the sweater, the chills always go in through hand and neck holes. But that is okay, right. Better than being stone-cold.
If you also want to listen to the song, I have embedded it for you below from Soundcloud.
