Another year has gone, and a New Year begins… each year at 00:00 1st of January the world celebrates the arrival of the New Year … people from all over the world get optimistic with this new start... With this new chance… they welcome the new beginning and say goodbye to the old one… they laugh and cheer, they dance in felicity, they feel the joy rushing in their veins, like adrenaline ... They forget all about the last year … as if it wasn’t here, as if it was just a dream… a 3 minute dream that merely passed by here..
All the people are excited; all are enthusiastic about the New Year… watching the fireworks… fascinated by the colors and shapes, happy that they didn’t miss watching such a painting... A dark sky sparkling… like our lives maybe… one young couple hold hands during the event, with blushing cheeks , but tangled fingers, watching the booming sky , the sparkling colors… wishing time would stop for them… wishing they will always be like this, holding hands in carefree… An old couple is here too, sitting on a bench while leaning on each other with a rhythmic breathing and smiling faces, after the pass of all these years, and after celebrating many New Years, they watch the sky with a smile with delight, thanking God for blessing them with one more New Year.
On the opposite side of the streets there is lonely man standing there, he had his heart broken the past year, “it’s okay now” he mumbles by himself, “it a New Year, yes it’s a New Year”… A divorced lady holding her 2 years old kid, watches the sky with teary eyes, but then when she see the giant smile on her kid’s face she sighs and says: “ it’s a New Year now my dear, may God bless us this Year”. I look around and I see happy student celebrating the New Year, not all had passed there exams, not all were accepted were they applied… But all were looking forward for the New Year, were they will resume chasing their dreams.
Kids are playing; adults are cheering, business men, housewives, teachers, doctors, engineers, even non employees were enjoying the arrival of the New Year.
