Metropolis

The streetlights are our stars, forming constellations above our heads as we inhale fumes and cigarette smoke. 


Beggars lie across stained streets marked with cracks, gaps, and the remnants of old chewing gum and cigarette butts. If you focus hard enough, you might just catch the gleam of unwanted pennies that litter the floor like dust gathering along car dashboards. The homeless seem at peace though, and how could they not be. Staring up with their backs to the ground, there's nothing to do but confuse the city lights for the stars that shine behind them. 


The universe can only fade into the background.

@Aqila Safuan, dia bagus tulis dalam english sebab dia masa kecik belajar kat England. tapi kalau nak bagus dalam english senang je. Be friends with people that speak english. It doesn't have to be perfect english, just as long as they speak it. A simple conversation in the language will go a long way.
