My alarm clock rang. It’s 6 a.m. It was just another dream. It has been a recurring dream since I can’t remember when. I was always running from something but I always end up at a locked door, a dead end.
It’s a start of another week. My life has circled around the same routine. Office, home…office, home. Not that I’m complaining. I know I’m still blessed because I have work, I can pay for my rent, I have food on the table, and I can splurge every now and then. But is that enough? I feel I’m still looking for something but I don’t know what.
Oh no, it’s 6:30 a.m. I need to leave or I won’t get to the office in time. I grabbed my coat and headed out in my fast pace steps. As I walked away, I heard a lady shout…”My baby!” I turned and saw a child walking into the busy street and a car was coming in fast.
I can’t remember what exactly happened next. I just felt my whole body go numb. I heard a baby crying and her worried mom holding her, she said…”Thank you.” Her face was blurry….i just heard sirens…people walking here and there. It’s getting dark.
My heart was pounding faster as I ran to the end of the hall. My clammy hands reached for the door. It’s locked! Why does it always have to be locked? I sat outside the door in despair. I can see darkness caving in. I reached for my handkerchief, a key fell from my pocket. I suddenly remembered I had the key to the door. It has been there all along. Now I know. I opened the door…there was light.
“All clear!” The doctor hollered. “I got a pulse…vital signs are stable.” My heart was galloping, I felt free.
