Ignorance is Bliss

I stop in the car at traffic lights seeing half of dozen of homeless wearing unfit cloth begging on dusty road at tired drivers full with stressed mind care nothing but home and cozy bed. Do I have to give those homeless one by one every cents in my pocket to them? Do all people driving in their cool cars must spare their cents which they’ve collected laboriously for every homeless in the street for their dinner today? Do my money that I spare is enough to make them not to beg for tomorrow or making their child can afford to go to school for next month? Every one choose not to care.

Ignorance is bliss

In early morning, I heard a young girl screamed next to my house, because she has just robbed by some mugger using guns. Her wallet, jewelries, and car taken forcibly just in front of her. I was asleep at home with memories of people’s advices not to go outside if there’s been late night or still in early morning. That lonely young woman sobbing and begging for help so that there are people want to help her bring back her stuffs. Do I have to come out and help that young lady? What can I do for her? Chasing those robberies until they have caught. Then, if only they’re too many for me and open fight happens, who will come to help me? Is what I do for her worth? If I eventually come out and give my shoulder for her to cry and make forget a moment what happened, will that return all of her valuable stuffs? Everyone choose not to intervene.

Ignorance is bliss

I saw a poster at college showing a baby with leukaemia and requires immediate blood with rare type. Everyone just pass the poster every day without even looking at this dying baby poster. He’s just 2 months, his body’s going blue and numb, his breath is assisted by instruments and tiny pipes. My blood type is the most common and it’s impossible for me to help him just with my own blood type. Do I have to call everyone I know then ask them to help this poor kid? Do I have to go to red cross and ask them to find this kind of blood while I’m still busy with my own final? Will I feel guilty if I just stare at this poster without doing something? Isn’t there anyone feel guilty not to see this poster even though they’re passing this wall magazine almost every day? Every one chooses not to know.

Ignorance is bliss

There’s one of my friend whom having trouble with his thesis. This is his last year and it’s impossible for him to pass if he can’t solve the problem he choose for his thesis. While I have graduated last year with good scores and working at decent office. He is my friend. Do I have to help him? If I eventually help him, will it make me in trouble? Thesis requires lots of time, is he aware that time is money? I’ll spend lots of energy and time just to think about something that he even doesn’t think about it. Is it worth to do? Will he remembers something I’ve done for the next 5 or 10 years? There are still more things to care besides him — money, parent, girlfriend, future. Everyone chooses not to care.

Ignorance is bliss

The girl who steals my heart will get married next month with his man. I’ve just got the invitation for his wedding and I obliged to come to her wedding party. I even have no idea what will I say to her even though she’s already buy me tuxedo that I will wear for her special day. I said yes whereas I won’t hurt my heart anymore. Do I have to come? Do I have to sacrifice once more? Does she understand although I have said to her that no one will replace her in my heart? Does she really care to me? Is my arrival worth enough for her? Do I have to be hurt for the last time? I choose to ignore.

Ignorance is bliss

Then, if ignorance, is really that bliss. Why there’s still unhappy people out there? Why still I can’t be happy?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
