What are you looking for?

He was just coming out from that building and walking without smile on his face. I can see his empty eyes… What was happening to you?

He was choosing unusual pavement by turning to the right side of the building to main field. He was walking slowly while his face is being faced down. His hands were in his pockets. Chilly wind blowing to his face made him more facing down. He seems thinking a lot by counting his steps. There was no smile on his face…

Suddenly, when he went through the park, he was stopping his walks and then taking a seat facing the pool. Slowly he was leaning his back at the seat and moving his hands in front of his chest.
At the lips of the poll, a dad and his daughter threw food remnants into the pool. She was screaming, and laughing when she was looking at the ducks, and seagulls trying to get the remnants. I began to realize that he showed his little smile when he looked at that girl’s happy face. But his sad eyes were still there. It was enjoyable moments for him…

He seemed missing his little enjoyment… when the girl and her dad left the pool, his sad eyes were coming back….
Then he decided to continue his walks, even he did not know where he wanted to go… No single word that come out from his mouth.

He changed his directions to another… and another … and then another… seemed he did not know what he should do… did he look for another enjoyments making him smile to wipe away the haze on his eyes?
What are you looking for? Is that a promise that you left behind?

@aya: mungkin dinginnya autumn ikut menggigit hati sang pemuda...

@wahyu: hati si pemuda mungkin diliputi haze... menunggu matahari terbit...

@tari: sepertinya si pemuda bukan Will Smith yang sedang berjuang menemukan kebahagiaan

@ali: biarkan pemuda itu yang menjawabnya untukmu...
