I looked at the plentiful photos.
Everyone is smiling.
Everyone looks happy.
Everything appears to be joyous.
Shouldn’t I be as happy as everyone else?
I distanced myself from the event.
Purposefully or not, I did it.
With fate, I kept myself away and busy.
Because.. of reasons that no one knew.
Shouldn’t I immerse myself in the same atmosphere?
I often say that I do not see the meaning in it.
I often say that I just did not want to go.
With time, I convinced even myself.
Simply because.. of reasons I do not wish to tell.
Maybe I will regret it in the future.
I have no idea.
But it may not be an event that will stay happy,
not in my memories or perspective.
Because.. I see things differently.
