I haven’t been like this for a long time, sitting quietly beside the computer in the afternoon of cool summer with light rain, let light rain tick, let cool breeze slowly, write down how much tangled and melancholy… because of busy or lazy abandon my favorite, or because I was so busy that I gave up my favorite? The happiness I once yearned for was a cup of green tea accompanying me and quietly doing my favorite thing and writing in the afternoon. But now I always use one of the most beautiful pretexts to give myself a reason to Crown myself as yellow. I am busy and tired, so I easily lose my former favorite, shuttling through the asphalt roads of the city all day long, shuttling through people coming and going, losing yourself, losing your original aspiration on the asphalt roads of the city, lost the most beautiful in the crowd shuttling back and forth… the asphalt road is too hard to leave footprints, most of the time just like a Walker without memory walking on this stiff asphalt road blankly, the mobile footsteps even forgot to stop to pay attention to the people around them, replacing sincerity with indifference, replacing kindness with hypocrisy, and presenting kindness, evil, beauty and ugliness with masked faces. I have asked myself many times whether the busyness of the city devoured the persistence of the past, or whether the asphalt road of the city is too hard to find the beauty of the past, or forget the beauty of the past. Busy takes the place of everything, indifference takes the place of everything, but what should have been taken for granted needs to be done with a constraint. Just like the newly issued regulations: you can be convicted if you don’t visit your parents for a long time, and you can be convicted if you don’t visit your parents for a long time in the legal interface. I don’t know whether this regulation is happy or sad when it appears? It is natural that children often go home to see their parents and show filial piety to their parents, but now laws are needed to restrain them. Is it the degeneration of human nature or the progress of laws and regulations? What our ancestors left us: our parents didn’t travel far away. When we were young, our parents raised us. When our parents were old, we should feed back. But now even the most basic family affection needs legal constraints, isn’t it the sadness of human nature? When a family affection needs to be maintained by law, what do we get and discard? Human nature is expanding and falling for a long time. The diversified social system gives human nature more rights, and more people learn to use this right to protect themselves, but more often we see the distorted mentality and inflation for the so-called rights: they ignore their family ties, their parents turn against each other, their brothers and sisters turn against each other, which are called: for their own rights, but who ever thought about the injured family affection behind this right… openly trampling on the most real family affection and abandoning the foundation of human nature. Does human nature really need to be so indifferent? Is there only indifference and hypocrisy on the asphalt road of the city? It’s not that the asphalt road is too hard, but that we are too impetuous. Most of the time, we ignore the voice in our hearts, forget the destination of walking, and forget to sort out our indifferent hearts, stop the mechanical steps and listen to the voice deep inside, give yourself some positive energy, and walk out of your most beautiful life on this hard and cold asphalt road.
