The Sheep That Doesn’t Like Eating Grass

One of these days when the rain didn’t seem like to stop. It was pouring as all the angels are peeing down on us. From morning to evening, from evening to the next morning, it was raining. The sky was gray and the lighting flashing for someone to take shots. But there was someone who didn’t like to give up walking.

This man,

Walking to find his sheep. He doesn’t know his sheep by name. He barely remember the color of it. He is a bad shepard who let his sheep to the roaring waters, to the temporal sparkling silver colored sky, to the majesty of the night with full of wildness. He never let his sheep walking to the still waters, to green pasture.

The rain kept pouring, so as the man walking.

The street was empty. The mud covered road is full of holes. Holes covered by dirty water. No one can guess how deep the hole is unless stepping in them. The ground didn’t seem like holding anything except the water and made of rocks. Deep after deep it is full of mud, or muddy water. The man knew that it is too late to look for his sheep. If it hasn’t died yet, it would soon. This is not the time for a sheep to walk. This man experience of the world couldn’t help him find out how to reverse what is happing now.

The man turned around to the valley of unfruitful grape. The sheep already knew he has owner. Someone who has power to sell or slaughter. How do a sheep know the owner always have knife? The money to buy it as well? It was the time when he decided to leave the house. He didn’t want to accept the knife in its neck for daily grass.

The man looked back how far it came. He needed the go back home, to his children, to his sick wife, to his knife. One sheep left doesn’t mean he will die hungry. He stopped. It got even more darker. The lighting didn’t flash. The moon gone far, far away. The sun never shines in this area of the world. It is only unstable ground with a pouring rain.

He decide to walk. Walking to any direction. To continue where he stopped. For this reason or for another. To the place where the sun shines in the night. To the place where he can take his wife to medicine.
