Which one are you?


CHILD AND CACTUS
-
"You are the first person I've ever loved, and so i love you very much. But I don't know how to show it. What do I have to do for you to be happy?"
-
The child asked the cactus.
-
"I just, want to be hugged by someone," answered the cactus as it gave a little smile.
-
"Really? Really?! Then you'll REALLY be happy?"
The little boy walked towards the cactus and hugged it.
-
[Cactus' POV]
-
"Someone please take this child away. My thorns are pricking the child, the more I try to push away,the more my thorns will hurt him. By what's happening, I will eventually kill this child. Someone please take this child away...."
-
[The child POV]
-
"The cactus does not look at me and smile. I don't know how to love. To me... love keeps hurting me. And so I keep hugging it tighter. But the cactus still does not smile. Does not smile..."
-
The child keeps hugging the cactus tighter. Until the cactus smile will smile...
-



P/s : Are you the cactus, who runs away from love because you're afraid of hurting others? or are you the child, who hangs on to love so much you can't see yourself hurting?
