The Abyss

The Abyss

A Story by Jiya

I was abandoned as a baby. Perhaps I was paying for my sins I committed in my previous births. A foster mother’s love had abeyanced me from facing the truth, the truth always abases illusions of luxuries, shatters dreams and hopes and pushes you into an abyss. But as great men said, there’s always a ray of hope even in the darkest, dreariest of times. My ray of hope, my seraphic luminous hope led me to the path of redemption. Who was I? No one knew. Who am I? An alias. The past cannot be omitted, but the future can be written by one’s own hands. In the darkness of the alleyway, I got robbed of my name aka alias, respect, the little of identity I possessed and was left only with a torn soul and...tears. They say crying is a sign of weakness, but what have they left me with? This path to redemption seems to extend till ad infinitum. Where’s the end? Where? Where is this ray of hope coming from? For how long I have to suffer? How long is the way out of this abyss?

its very short. i like the second sentence because i thought it reveal a lot about the character, for example he is trying to reason for his abandonment . The rest is good, continue it.

A great narrative. I also have great literacy value if used academically. A good work.

"They say crying is a sign of weakness, but what have they left me with?"

The voice has a way of making the reader guilty of his predicament..."well done.
