The Magic Piano

The twist

By Mogomotsi MoremiPublished 12 months ago 3 min read

Josh More was thinking about Mary Megg again. Mary was a charming friend with pretty hands and brown lips.

Josh walked over to the window and reflected on his hilly surroundings. He had always hated wild camp with its jolly, jealous jungle. It was a place that encouraged his tendency to feel surprised.

Then he saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the charming figure of Mary Megg.

Josh gulped. He glanced at his own reflection. He was a special, adorable, beer drinker with pointy hands and sticky lips. His friends saw him as a hurt, hushed hero. Once, he had even revived a dying, friend.

But not even a special person who had once revived a dying, friend, was prepared for what Mary had in-store today.

The sun shone like thinking monkeys, making Josh confident. Josh grabbed a magic piano that had been strewn nearby; he massaged it with his fingers.

As Josh stepped outside and Mary came closer, he could see the glint in his eye.

Mary gazed with the affection of 4425 patient tasty toads. He said, in hushed tones, "I love you and I want to spend my life with you love."

Josh looked back, even more, confident and still fingering the magic piano. "Mary, are you serious," he replied.

They looked at each other with happy feelings, like two fresh, flaky foxes partying at a very remarkable engagement party, which had jazz music playing in the background and two noble uncles walking to the beat.

Josh studied Mary's pretty hands and brown lips. Eventually, he took a deep breath. "I'm sorry," began Josh in apologetic tones, "I don't know what to feel, I don't know if you are serious or not."

Mary looked concerned, his emotions raw like a gigantic, grieving gun.

Josh could actually hear Mary's emotions shatter into 7918 pieces. Then the charming friend hurried away into the distance.

Not even a drink of beer would calm Josh's nerves tonight.

Moral of the story

People sometimes confuse pure love with unconditional affection. When they meet the partners with whom they truly want to spend the rest of their lives, they constantly claim that their love for them is unconditional, but after a few hiccups in the relationship, they split up and despise each other.

Most people aspire to love and be loved without constraints, boundaries, hesitations, or limits. You desire a love that isn't simply offered by your family, but one that may become a member of your own family. It is difficult to provide unconditional love if you do not love yourself. You should always begin with loving yourself if you want to provide unconditional love. If you are burdened by so much pain or have so many troubles in life, it will be tough to love unreservedly.

The only person who can assist you in overcoming all of your obstacles in life is yourself. If you have the desire to do so, you can go over the constraints in your life. Only if you can perceive it with your will can you realize that love is infinite and simply present. However, if you are stuck in your past, you will never be able to appreciate the love for what it is, and it will be difficult for you to show someone you care.

You must get outside of your comfort zone in order to appreciate the beauty of the planet while cleaning your mind. This will keep you motivated and give you the courage to continue on your trip. You'll be able to manifest anything if you have a focused, optimistic mentality. All you have to do is have faith in your abilities.
