As he opened the door, the room was in total darkness. He switched on the lights and stepped in. The interior was clean. The room wasn't getting enough visitors like before. He used to frequent to this place but now he could hardly find time to visit it.
As he walked to the middle of the room and sat on the floor, suddenly, he felt an emptiness deep inside him. He closed his eyes and emptied his feelings. He realized that he wasn't the person he used to be. It was clear that something was missing inside him. Regret started to build as he slowly fell into a deep thought.
As he looked into his soul, he saw the light was burning dim. The winds that blows from every direction caused the light to flicker. He watched helplessly hoping that the light would not extinguish.
As he let his mind roam to the past, he realized that the huge waves of busyness that hit him constantly had caused a drift in his life. Although he learned many things and gained much experiences and confidence, he had also lost some valuables of life. It was a painful sacrifice he had made. Sorrow filled himself. He hoped for a little tears to wash away the sadness but his eyes refused to cry.
As he looked back, he noticed that he wasn't in the right path. Without realizing, he had left the mountain that he was climbing. He had left the path that he chose before and had been lingering in uncertainties. He had been walking in cloudiness.
He quickly got up and ran towards the mountain but he realized that it was impossible for him to climb up as he had lost his climbing tools.
He searched for the tools but it was too dark that he could hardly see anything. He searched for the people who had helped him before but there wasn't anyone anymore. He was standing in front of the mountain all alone with frustration getting stronger.
Without thinking any further, he rushed and hastily started to climb up the mountain with bare hands. With much effort, he slowly moved himself up but he quickly realized that he had lost the strength he had before. He would not be able to do it. He slipped and fell down hard on the ground.
As he lied flat on the ground helplessly, he heard a cry in his right ear and a laughter in his left ear. He closed his eyes tight and put his mind to rest.
His body became weaker and weaker when suddenly, the darkness of the place started to disappear and lights began to brighten up the place. He slowly opened his eyes and noticed that the sun was rising. It was a beautiful morning. The air was so fresh. Birds started to sing sending peace to his mind.
He realized that there was still a new day to welcome. There was still time left for him to build his strength and find his climbing tools. He realized that he need patience to climb up the mountain again and it would not happen easily.
He got up and wearily walked away with a vague hope.
