The Best Benefit of Morning Jogs

Isn’t it nice to watch someone you love while he sleeps? Same goes with the world. There’s a comforting cheer to see the world before everything in it wakes up. To see it even before the sun sets the spotlight on it. To see the dim glow from the street lamps dominate the streets before the sun takes over and to watch them blink when you pass by. To hear nothing but your footsteps on the road, complemented by occasional tweet-tweets and chirp-chirps, no cranky broom-brooms from grumpy smoke belchers. To inhale the fresh breath of trees and grass.

So, even if it’s a pain to wake up early, I get up and go out. I jog before the first ray of the sun escapes the eastern horizon. I wake up ahead of most people to watch the sleeping world even just a couple of minutes before it wakes. Because it’s beautiful.

This is more like an emotional benefit.


The Best Time In The Morning

The best time to breathe is before the sun rises. The best time to live is before every lazy person wakes up.

The best time to wait is when you know nobody’s coming. Even the person who’s in your mind right now.

I sit and hear nothing but broken lyrics pounding in my ears. I stare at the grass, people walking and running on my peripheral. I pay attention to every line of the song and think nothing. But he has always been in my head.

I try not to hope that he’ll come.

I try not to write about him.
