Homesick

The first time I left home I was 25 years old. Before that I always stayed with my parents at countryside. Growing up I always wanted to move out and go to city and see how the world is outside the pond I'm living in. But due to family problems I couldn't move sooner.

when I reached 25 I finally was able to move out and I was very happy. When I arrived there I was very excited cause that was the first time I saw such big buildings and so many people. I thought I would never want to go back to countryside.

3 months passed like 3 days. And  because I  had stayed there for sometime the buildings and busy streets didn't fascinate me anymore. Again my life returned back to the time when I lived with my parents. No, I think it has became even worse.

Yesterday I reached 30 and it had became 5 years since I moved out and life was still very boring. I thought what is it that I'm not satisfied with and I think I got my answer. What I'm missing is waking up with the smell of breakfast, my mom waiting for me when I come home late at night, my brother fighting with me for bigger slice of cake, jessie running to my home impatiently to share the gossips she heard from someone, dad covering for us when we get bad grade, grandfather telling stories about the time he had to cross river to go to study, my small room full of posters of celebrities which I bought by saving my pocket money, my small bed from which I fell countless times while sleeping, my dad's laptop which gets hot enough to boil water while watching  movie, the terrace from which my sister and I used to watch stars and moons and talk about our dreams, mango tree which comes to my window and scare me at night, the boy living infront of the house of my friend with whom I just shared smile for three years before I got to know he was dating another girl, Lisa aunt who used to bring me food whenever she cooked something delicious, the cool evening breeze hitting the skin when all the families of the neighborhood came out of the house and chatted, the forest near my house where I used to wander when I felt bored, sound of river that used to irritate me when I tried to sleep at night, my MP3 player which my dad brought when he went to town, my grandfather's radio that used to be on 24 hours and annoyed me, getting scolded for stealing litchi from neighbor's garden, walking to home from school with friends, betting on who can climb the tree faster, waking up with sound of rooster, swimming on the waterfall in the summer morning, sounds of birds chirping, going to fishing with my grandfather, dark nights with a bright moon and millions of shining stars....... I realized I'm missing home. These big buildings and crowds of people  make me feel lonely. I'm at home only among the trees..... I'm homesick. 

Today after five years I'm finally feeling better cause I'm going back home.....
