Listening to: switchfoot - this is home
John a.k.a Desktology was a dreamer......
4 years ago he was diagnosed with leukemia. I never thought the plague was even worse when you see your friend suffering. The blood was just too dreary, I never thought he could take all this. I used to hear him complaining about this and that but never heard a word when he suffered too much of this nightmare. He knew he was dying but he managed to live with it with no regrets. He kept on saying that he's got happiness in both hands now and that contentment has come to make him more humane. At first, I thought that was insane, strange and weird! I never thought he could say something like that but I had to deal with it. I know I'll miss those things when he learns to say goodbye to us....and he did.
He managed to live this far. He continued doing stuff that he liked including his deviations here and the narratives of a dying being. It took me up till here to accept his departure. I remember two days ago when suddenly the blood just came out from his mouth, coughing he said "oh! man! this is it! I'm off to see what God looks like! I never said a word...I just cried...
He adds, "You know what life makes life?!" I tried to stop him from talking because now I could feel his pain but he continued" It's the progress of your daily deviations! Never mind the favorites or the number of downloads or the total hits of your page views because it sucks! It's all about how you care about those who really care and appreciate.....
Learn to disrespect and you get more than a heartache!"
I went back home thinking about those things he said...I figured it out but it's too late to response or even say a few more things to him. He;s gone....
John was a dreamer for a long time but an inspiration for just a second.
