                           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.

Yes. I appreciate your point about the Child getting waylaid and disiilusioned with Life. You can elaborate on your very effective deliberation some more. Add more emotions and more imagery poerhaps. But the idea is solid. It has inspired me to write about a beautiful baby girl who was very gifted but was ignored for an ordinary and plain little brother. After 4 decades...She is still struggling to realize her talent today! :)

A perfect description of American society as it stands. Emphasis on the wrong things, loss of values. Short, sweet, and to the point. I like it. Well done, and kudoos on your wisdom, courage, and observation.

A lot of wisdom was put behind this piece. I agree with it in the sense of the struggles we face as we grow up and the mistakes and choices we make will forever influence us in life. I thought it had a fantastic message and I am impressed with the philosophical background you put into it. Well done with this!

this is brilliantly written but more importantly its amazingly thought about and philosophical... i completely agree with everything which is said in this and even though i know this is an inevitable path for alot of people still dont quite know how to prevent it from ever happening to me...

a very good piece... well done

You have so much truth in your writing and I completely agree with this piece. There are so many types of lifestyles and complications in nearly every subject and the world is made of subjectivity but thats what life is: a string of multiple turning, twisting, overlapping and maybe even repeating roads. This piece sums up the rise and fall of a life, and the reminiscence of childhood we all feel throughout our lives. Great job!

There is something so beautifully bittersweet in your life's expressions here... the wonder and joy of childhood fading into mist as one grows older... May we find somehow that it isn't ever too late.
