                           The Reality of Life


As a child is born he is innocent and angelic. He repeats what you say and follows what you do. His sweet little acts are a source of joy for the whole family. This is undoubtedly the most cheerful stage of life. As he grows up he learns a lot of things, while most of them are productive others aren’t. He is shown a lot of paths in front of him and has to decide which one to follow. He follows one, then another and quickly realizes that his life is not going in the right direction. This is not what he always wanted to do. He gets depressed and hopeless. He spends most of his life in this misery. Things get very tough for him. He doesn’t know where to go, who to look up to. It is only when he gets old that he realizes the true meaning of life. Perhaps it was the innocence, the purity that was missing throughout his adulthood. He indulged into things which were materialistic, virtual and unrighteous. This is the reason why one goes back into his childhood as he gets old. But by that time it is too late. If only he could go back in time and undo his wrong deeds. Thus it is necessary that we start giving importance to the basic principles of life and stay away from the worldly desires so that we won’t have to contrite for our deeds when we get old and feeble.

Hi Talal, I think you are a natural, you write brilliantly and I could not detect any grammatical errors. Keep writing, this is a solid effort, I thoroughly engaged with your perceptions of this young boy's development and your philosophical stance was mature and enhanced the piece greatly, Well done.

You say you're not a traditional writer you mean you're not an author. You've a unique talent all you've to do is to publish book to become an author, it won't interfere with your studies, you may a doctor and an author too – write more and the best of luck.

Today I was thinking about how different everyone's life is from mine. Nothing in this writing describes what I was thinking about. Instead it describes people I don't know about. I read all the reviews for this writing, and one I agree with is it does sound like a proverb. Like from Proverbs in the Bible.

Hello Talal, it is a very good piece, challenging readers to the philosophical contest and looking for answers with too many questions. Life is homework we learn lessons, sometimes we need a blackboard of life.

What goes around comes back around. Our simplistic values as children are not marred by greed and prejudices. What we determine as mature and adult can be truly devastating to our peace and well being. It isn't until much later on that we realize what is truly important comes from the heart. You have captured this essence beautifully and with great wisdom. Keep writing. Writing is what comes from the soul and can't be shut off. It pours from us whether we want it to or not.

OKay sure will
None of the youth I know would take this seriously, though it is very well written. It would have more effect if it were fictionalized, and I think you are a good enough writer to do that.

"He indulged into things which were materialistic, virtual and unrighteous. This is the reason why one goes back into his childhood as he gets old."

Couldn't agree more :) Makes a very brilliant read. Keep writing.

truly said, elders teach kids and then that clean slate reads whats written by elders and follow it and many times end up being what they were not really meant to be.... but the realization dawns too late, at times no chance, opportunity or confidence to go by heart's wish...

nice write
