The reality of life

A Story by Talal Hussain

Well this is my first writing..this article is based on the reality of life.after seeing the youth being mislead i thought it was important to refresh their soul and guide them towards a content life

                           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.

Like Robert said, this is a very abstract and personal view on Life. i feel as though the 'Reality of Life' is that you go through it obtaining knowledge and emotions that eventually become redundant and in the end have no meaning.
i feel as though in your words you say, and i could be very, very wrong, that a life filled with the quest for meaning will in turn become meaningless.
this is very wise and filled with both truth and falsity. as most proverbs are, i guess what i am trying to say is that this article read, not as a article but more as a Proverb for someone to look back on and relate to. perhaps i have not seen enough of life to truly appreciate this to the fullest extent. in any event this was a very very interesting and insightful read and i thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us here at Writers Cafe and hope you make yourself at home!! keep the philosophic thoughts going cause your a natural! :D

Thanks bro...really respect your views :-)
I respect the intent and agree with many elements of the lesson, but your statements are broad enough to border on the abstract. I think that it would help the reader if you were to cite some examples, some illustrative stories however brief, to personalize the points and flesh them out.

I agree with what you say here, and enjoyed reading it. Nice use of words. I feel, though, that you should expand this beyond what you call an "article" into an actual story, personalize it, find some incident or long-standing problem from "real life" and describe this article vis-a-vis the subtleties of actual living. It's the undertones of life that strike a person, not so much the overtones. Then again, opinions are just opinions. Nice write.

Thanks for the review...i appreciate your suggestion and will work upon it thanks again :-)
I like this, it made me think. I especially like the sentence, "He is shown a lot of paths in front of him and has to decide which one to follow."

You are very right about this, and I'm one of those who took some wrong turns when young and now ponder what I may have done different. There's a saying "Youth is wasted on the young", and it's true, I'm afraid. Such is our world, though, and we have to do our best.

Rightly said sir, I hope the youth takes away a message and follows the right path..
Very nice writing and good value lesson for all to think about...I also am drawn to your statement that " if words are given the right path they can penetrate deeper than sword..."....Thank you ...

Thank you so much mam...really appreciate that :-)
I have to say this was great, I have chilren and I try to teach them everything and let them grow as little peopel. I do not want them to grow to fast so that we can cherish the younger years.

I must say I may have to let my oldest son read this as he is only 12 and he has this angry problem out of this world. It is like he is an adult trapped in a childs body. No matter what I say or take away from he stays the same.
