A stranger can sometimes be the best companion. Walk the road of a stranger and you will know about life a lot. Things that you never knew, never experienced, never imagined, never encountered. There is a saying, "better stranger than a friend". It has a lot of gravity on it's shoulder and it lives up to that prestige. I have experienced most of my life with strangers, who soon became friends. They didn't only bring a lot of new vibes in my life but also carried new experience, new thoughts, new perspectives, better rules, way better morals, lovely ethics, tasty food, crazy laughters, supporting shoulders, best of all was the memories that I'll carry to my grave. Some brought love, some brought heartbreaks, some canalled life long relationships, some brought smile to my face, some brought music that touches souls and some didn't bring anything but themselves. A stranger is a mystery, and they are the best gifts life can give. Some day some stranger will company you to the darkest roads, some will share a piece of bread when war is upon us, some will give you shelter on a weary journey, some will marry you, some will become you. It's a beautiful journey to know a stranger. After all life is all about new experiences, new hope, new everything. So go out there, try not to get killed by a serial killer, but open your minds to possibilities of knowing someone new, someone fresh, someone mysterious, and be a stranger to someone else too. Strangers are the friends you haven't met yet.
