Hourglass

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.




Did you all listen to Hourglass by The Heal (Wanna One)?

It was produced by Heize, one of artist I respect a lot for her musics and as a singer. Just like IU and Yong Junhyung, her musics always move my heart. Their musics somehow comforting and the lyrics are always what I hope someone would tell me and what I want to tell someone else when I'm comforting them because I'm not good with words.

You know what? Singer don't always have to learn to sing high notes and all. I love ballad a lot since I'm a sentimental person, but there was some of the times when you are all alone and need comforting, ballad with high note just wont calm you down. Ballad are most written with lyrics about how you feel and you love it when your brain can't interpret what you feel but somehow can relate to the songs. Unlike ballad with all kind of high notes, just a slow and soothing voice songs could help me feel better because most of the songs like that are written with comforting lyrics saying, "it's okay", "I'll be there with you", "everything will pass", "you've worked hard".


Okay I was just babbling nonsense. Back to the title.

Yeah hourglass. I was inspired by what Heize said. You thought it's the end but no, the thing is you can always restart again. But yeah she's talking about Wanna One disbandment that will happen at the end of this year. *crying in the corner of my room just thinking about it*

Hourglass is something you can turn it around repeatedly right? When all the sand from the upper side fell to the bottom, we can turn it upside down and the sand will repeat to fall again.

Just like our life. When we failed doing something we thought everything is the end of our world. Imagine if the fallen sand represent our opportunity. You just have to turn it around to make a new start.

What I'm trying to say is, either you fail or not, the sand will still fall to the bottom and you can always turn it upside down again. But it's all ups to you either you want to turn it around again or not. You always have the opportunity.  Anyone else wouldn't do it for you because everyone has their own hourglass. Time will just pass us without waiting. The choice is for us to make, for our own life, for our own future.

There's no such thing as the end of the world when you fail something. You can make a new start, dear.

But if you don't have the courage to turn the hourglass now, it's okay. Rest from the world for a while. Heal from your pain. Learn to stand up again. But don't be comfortable staying on the ground for a long time. God know what's best for you. If you can't stand up alone, He will always send someone to give you a hand, so that the person can help you build up courage to turn your hourglass again.


Honestly I think I'm babbling a lot in this post. I don't know if you get what I'm trying to say. I spent almost 2 weeks thinking about how to interpret this in word because it just suddenly pop in my head. 

Oh ya! I have exams this Sunday (24/6) and next Saturday (30/6). I have been drawing for months and suddenly I have to study. I don't know how my brain will swallow all the knowledge in a few days. Pray and wish me luck, guys!

Wassalamualaikum w.b.t.
