I’ll Never Be a Slave Again!

Here he suddenly drains the bottle of water with unduly aggressiveness, springs up as swiftly as Achilles, and walks toward the window gravely, as if his eyes just casted on Trojan hero Hector. He is staring at the blue heaven remorsefully for a while, as Odysseus thought of his home, then begins his discourse, as though he were performing his soliloquy before invisible audiences: “You know, amigo, I’ve been having quit a difficult time since I turned my back on the stupid job. Don’t misinterpret this, Shogo, I’m so glad that I’ve become independent and stayed away from stupid society systems. However, I’m feeling uneasy and worried about my economic circumstances all the time. I’m no longer paid every single month, like when I was a shameful slave; I only receive money only twice a year – that’s why I’m constantly anxious about selling houses and feel obliging to take care of many things at once. To be candid with you, I’m still not satisfied with my situation, but I feel alive and enthusiastic. On top of it all, I’m glad that I’m no longer a slave and thank God at sunrise every morning for being able to unlock the fetters from my feet. You know, Shogo, what I’ve realized is that everyone has a second chance; every one is able to be liberated if they sincerely want to be redeemed from the bottom of the heart. It seems to me that the majority of people give up even before they start fighting for their dear lives. Do they enjoy being a slave or are they afraid of being a different from others? Or don’t they simply have enough courage to let themselves to walk on their private destiny? I guess that they just accept the modern society system, without questioning whether they are right systems or whether they bring happiness to them. And to cap it all, they’re unwantedly trapped by the modern society system and undesirably conclude that life is a humdrum routine. Boredom puts fetters upon the imagination, so to speak. They’d better recognize that they are able to unlock the fetters any time they want, for the key is invitingly dangling before their eyes. All negative and pessimistic thoughts are in mind, you know; they create boredom and fear in their minds themselves. They should forget what they’ve failed to achieve; they should forgive themselves and start living on their lives according to their heart’s prompting. It does not matter what they’ve done so far; it does matter how they look at the future. Anyway, what I’m trying to say here is that right now I can calmly look at my future and patiently wait for my new world to come. I’m very sure as sun never failing to rise that I’ll hit the spot someday somehow if I keep on ascending invisible ladders toward the bright light and never give up. Moreover, I’ve already gone too far, so I can’t go back to my old miserable life again. I can no longer picture to myself that I work for a company and work under a stupid boss in goddamn tight schedule. No, amigo, that humiliating life is finished in me for good. I’ll never be a slave again!”
