Just this afternoon i got home from my weekend campus. under tbe scorch of the sun out of blue i must stop as it was red light. Hard to believe that i must stay on the very hot asphalt for about 2 minutes. it was not that crowded but the line was quite long, i felt that i was baked under the sun. wearing jacket and helmett i just could breathe very slowly, not just because of de “custome” but also because the oxygent seemed dissapeared already.
it was full of smoke and carbon dioxide, felt like a fish on the land…. I NEED SPACE AND OXYGEN, so i shouted…in my heart, the two minutes in traffic light had turned into the longest two minutes in my life. i wonder what the earth ” feel ” like in the next 40 years, it’s getting hotter i supposed and becomes so torturing for the inhabitants.
i remember when i was child and growing up in Pekanbaru, Sumatera, everyday i must walk for some kilometres from home to school and yeah of course the sun was also “burning” me under, but at least i could breathe freely and consume clean air without “jostling” around with other earth fellas. besides, i would be always walking under the shady trees so i was not that “toasted” :)) , nevertheless, rite now? instead of shady trees, all that can share the shadow are only big buildings or sky scrapers ( which is absent in Yogya).
i hope i am not caught by traffic light again, as next time, i may be killed because of the heat, pollution, and the heat.
