(So I wanted to do something different than poetry. Also I listened to this song and I have become obsessed with it because it is the question that isn’t leaving my brain. As far as I can think, here is my answer. So let’s start with a suitable starting.)
Of all the questions that keep striking my head. There’s one question whose answer seems so easy yet almost impossible to answer. No it is not ‘What is time? or Who made this universe?’ It is rather a simple question, from a song named ‘Have you ever seen the rain?” Well anybody will answer it yes, of course every human has seen the rain. But when you listen to the entire song, when your heart feels it. You realise the song actually asks a very important aspect of one’s life.
The answer to the question is obviously different. It depends on one’s perception towards his own life as not every life is same. Going back to the question it asks ‘Has anyone seen the sad moments while experiencing those happy moments? Like a metaphor for sunshower. Yeah it is true. Think of everyone, while growing up everybody remains happy that finally they will get to do adult things. But what lefts behind is childhood, perhaps the most happiest part of everybody’s lives. Leaving behind your loved ones to do something different. Leaving behind your school mates to advance in life. We forget those sad moments we’re about to experience after these happy time.
For me it is those sad moments which I even forget to realise in those joyous times. For many it may be the opposite. But there is one thing that is not easy, which is the answer to the singer’s question. And Ia Ia I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain?
