Limbo

In the theology of the Catholic Church,

Limbo (Latin limbus, edge or boundary,

referring to the "edge" of Hell)

is a speculative idea about the afterlife condition

of those who die in original sin

without being assigned to the Hell of the damned.

 

got to learn Limbo

from the movie Inception

of course

 

i think i am in one too

i withdrew

but it’s not complete

i still keep thinking of going back

i begged them

but they wouldn’t let me to

 

and there is no path

for me to proceed

i am trapped

 

it has been 4 months already

i have been job-hopping

4 in a row

and the list will grow

 

my parents keep asking me

to start afresh

new course new place

 

but to me

it won’t do

i will just enter a course

happily acting a zombie

 

graduate with mediocre result

and that’s it

and i shall go back to square one

have to come out

and look for a job

i don’t like the job

and continue to hop

 

so i won’t go back to school

because i don’t even know

what i want to do now

what am i best at, how?

 

and most important of all

the mentality

i just couldn’t fit in

with the 1990’s kids

for another 3 or 4 years

looking at all the friends

happily graduating next sem

 

so i would rather just hide myself

but this is not a permanent solution

i can continue to hop and fall

but 5 years down the road

i am no longer young

 

friends would be embarking

on a stable career

speaking about buying cars, houses

a happy family in construction

 

but what can i do

nothing

nothing

most probably

i will still struggle with

meagre incomes

with the support from parents

while others are doing the other way round

 

welcome to my Limbo

the world of sheer emo
