‡ Fireworks ‡

Today is the second day of 2013.

During my way back to home from office, I saw random, colorful fireworks on the evening sky. Shining red, green, and blue, sheding lights upon us for a few seconds.

Then a question crossed my mind.

Why would people spend money for fireworks?

Yes, they are beautiful. Those fireworks could make you smile upon their beauty; some may say it's romantic to stand under the night sky which is decorated with fireworks.

But again, you can only enjoy it for a few seconds before it disappear to nowhere, leaving nothing at all.
And there your money goes to.

What make fireworks so special and beautiful?

I don't know what the answer is.
Perhaps each of you has a different answer for me.

However, as for me, I think the fireworks have no beauty when they are not in the dark.
When they are played on the morning or afternoon, no one would appreciate the beauty because we could barely see them.

The night itself makes us realize how beautiful lights could be. Even just for a moment.

Fireworks are the best when they are on the dark sky.

Sometimes we might feel like we're in the deepest darkness where we could do nothing at all.
But, maybe, just maybe, it's because you're destined to shine.

Just like the fireworks.

However it's your choice to let yourself shine or just stay as nothing.

Sounds familiar?
Yes, it reminds me of a song by Katy Perry. ;)

"Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep?
Six feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there's still a chance for you
'Cause there's a spark in you?

You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it's time, you'll know

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

'Cause baby you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through"
- Firework, Katy Perry
