The Ants In The Room

The cards have been dealt and the elephant is gone. You exited the zoo kingdom, only to find yourself entering a new one. Maybe you should have stuck to the old one, maybe this one is not for you. Funny little creatures running around. At least the elephant was big enough to see.

Almost invisible, but they're still there. Still pestering you everywhere you go. And you can't seem to get rid of them. Pest control is not even an option. Yet somehow, ironically, you still enjoy their company because they remind you of the elephant, the one you drove away. Somehow, them being there makes you feel better, lighter.

Indeed, the room looks bigger and brighter now. Yet there are still shadows on the wall, shadows that are slowly creeping away. Not because you want them to, but because they have to. They have to go back to where they came from.

Because sometimes you'd rather have a room with an elephant in it than one pestered with ants. Sometimes in life, dealing with one big thing is way better than dealing with many small ones. But then again, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.
