Heart: Maybe this isn’t meant to be solved.
Brain: What do you mean?
Heart: I mean, we don’t need to make it vanish.
Heart: You know, like space.
Brain: We’ve always love space. What about it?
Heart: Most of it is vacuum. Like the void we’re having now.
Brain: Yes, this feeling of voidness.
Heart: And then there are stars and other beautiful things in space.
Brain: Yes. Never fail to mesmerize us.
Heart: We just have to hop on from star to star, from planet to planet, from one beautiful thing to another beautiful thing.
Brain: That sounds like a plan.
Heart: While hopping, we have to go through the vacuum, but we don’t have to linger till we plant our feet firmly on the next solid ground.
Brain: Yes, we have to bear that in mind.
Heart: We’ll try our best to avoid black holes. They’re mysterious, maybe dangerous.
Brain: Ok, will do.
Heart: We must prepare ourselves with everything we need we when go hopping to help pull us to our next destination – good friends, motivational books, Holy Quran, night prayers, coffee, movies, exercises and many more.
Brain: Okay! Let’s do this!
Brain: Have you ever pondered…?
Heart: About what?
Brain: …why we do kind things to others?
Heart: Because it makes them happy?
Heart: Because that’s the right thing to do?
Brain: I don’t think so.
Heart: Because that’s what our religion teach us?
Heart: What’s your point?
Brain: We do that because it makes us happy.
Brain: We do that to fill the void in our heart.
Heart: I guess so.
Brain: We do that for our satisfaction.
Brain: How selfish.
Heart: Oh… right.
Brain: 1. Pay bills
Heart: Hey, you.
Brain: 2. Settle poster design
Heart: Hey. Listen to me.
Brain: 3. Submit documents
Heart: What are you doing?
Brain: 4. Draft speech for meeting
Heart: Don’t ignore me!
Brain: You are the one interupting me!
Heart: What are you doing?!
Brain: I am trying to sort out our life.
Heart: We can do that later.
Brain: Will you please just shut up and help me out here?
Heart: Okay! Okay! I am jotting them down.
Brain: Get up. We got stuffs to do.
Heart: I can’t.
Brain: Get up! We need to make a living, pay the bills, achieve some goals.
Heart: I can’t. It’s painful.
Brain: Stop pulling my leg.
Heart: It’s really, really painful. No kidding.
Brain: You’re over dramatic.
Heart: Accuse all you want.
Brain: *sigh* How long do you need?
Heart: 5 minutes.
Brain: Last time you said 5 minutes, you took 3 hours.
Heart: It was painful. It is painful now.
Brain: Fine. 5 minutes. No more.
Brain: Hey! You can do better than that.
Heart: Why? I am tired.
Brain: We don’t want them to find out.
Heart: I don’t care anymore…
Brain: You don’t remember that sleepless night, do you?
Heart: When? What?
Brain: That day when that lady found out.
Heart: Which lady?
Brain: And she asked what is wrong with you.
Heart: Oh… that.
Brain: We are not even that close.
Brain: But she found out.
Heart: Yes, she found out.
Brain: So try harder, please.
Heart: Hmm… *sigh*
Brain: Like you mean it!
Heart: Okay! Okay!!
Heart: What did you just tell her?
Brain: The truth.
Heart: Don’t do that! She’s happy. We’re not.
Brain: All the more reason to let it out.
Heart: No! It’ll only drag her down.
Brain: No! To be happy, we need to be around happy people.
Heart: I know that’s true. But don’t tell her our unhappiness.
Brain: She’ll find out, anyway.
Heart: Stop telling people.
Brain: Why are you always so guarded?
Brain: We should sleep.
Heart: I can’t. It’s too noisy.
Brain: Stop replaying all those criticisms and judgements!
Heart: But you are the one who stored them in memory!
Brain: If you control emotion, they’ll all fade away from memory.
Heart: Aren’t you the one who’s suppose to take care of hormonal balance and chemicals in you?
Brain: We should sleep.
Heart: I hope we can sleep, too.
There are instances in life when my heart argues with my brain.
My intelligence contradicts my instinct.
When a long-term planning disagrees with that spark of curiosity, I would be at the most confusing junction.
But in the end, I have to decide. Because that is the only way forward with life.
I’d either be grateful of that correct decision, or learn a valuable lesson from my mistake.
