                           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.

" 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." I agree, but ups and downs, unlucky events, our wrongdoing and mistakes, they're a part of life and everyone has to go through them. How consistent one is on his path right or wrong determines how much he goes ahead on that path.

i agree with you...
You have explored a very important issue, that is, as i understand it, the upbringing of children, and the factors affecting a person's personality, pattern of thinking. The way you have expressed your thoughts, your writing style and flow, were natural and simple.

I really like the first part, but I don't agree with your theory, I believe our source of sadness that's come with adulthood is the fear of our changing desires. Though some desires should never be met, i.e rape murder etc., most are natural and should at least be explored. Life is for the living, and fear is for the weak.

All children are born ignorant of the ability to hate. It is to our shame they learn it from adults.

Good write... have a read over mine...

'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.'

That line was truly beautiful. Lovely, painfully truthful story.

This is very wise and very true. I am constantly in contrition for the things I did in my young life . . . or more importantly, the things I didn't do
