The eagle has landed

The film, Eddie The Eagle, has just moved from my list of “To Watch” to my list of “All-Time Favorites”. I have also just recommended it to all my Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook connections.

I’m on a high right now. I’m listing down all the words I can associate to this movie, this life story:

Dedication. Passion. Failure. Determination. Rejection. Inspiration. Trust. Courage. Heart. Ambition. Training. Dream. Positivity. Negativity. Hope. Struggle. Pain. Recognition. Effort. Discipline. Readiness. Spirit. Motivation. Experience. Preparation. Encouragement. Understanding. Belief.

No further explanations. That’s it; that’s the review.

I wasn’t drunk; I was myself that night.

I realized this just now. That night, and probably on other days, I did and said all those things not because I was drunk. I was just my complete self. I may not know why exactly, but in nights like that, I’m myself. It may be because I’m extremely comfortable with the people I’m with or because the people around me are drunk anyways and may forget everything the following day. Whatever the reason, I’m just glad I’m able to put down my mask from time to time.

Tomorrow, I’m letting you go.

I know I’ve said it a thousand times.

But this very night, I feel the need.


Tonight, we were together.

Different, everything felt.


The song I haven’t heard in years.

It played as if on cue when I arrived.

There, with you, I felt every line.


I have already lost you long ago.

After all the heartaches, the waiting.

Who was I to hope we could still be?


I almost had you many times.

Many times I missed the chance.

Tonight I felt you’re really over me.

Tomorrow, I’m letting go for real.
