                           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.

Hi Talal, there is not much one can say about this very wise piece. One cannot argue with its truth however, is it possible in this day and age. Not all people who have material wealth are without virtue or righteousness and many wealthy people are philanthropic in thought and deed. It is the pursuit of such things for the sake of them at the expense of others that I think is wholly wrong.

hey John...i totally agree with you..thanks for your comments :-)
"Angelic" and "innocent", I think are more appeals to emotions opposed to fact. Helpless, dependent, vulnerable. It doesn't really speak to me but its content is more than relevant. You've taken a deep subject and tried to dissect it but unfortunately to summarize it in this simplistic piece it's rather of a disservice to the human condition. Yet maybe it's I who needs to look at the human condition in a more simplistic approach. None the less you are right into your observations about materialism, unrighteousness ( sometimes our righteousness becomes unrighteousness) and we need to figure out that there is "formula to our dispair". I think that the secret to life is that there is no secret to life. In summation, the fact that I wrote this long review goes to show you that you are doing well in your writing by making me think of these things. Good job:)

Like the thought behind this. Clean it up a bit, and it will help your message shine. For a first write, it gives promise of what is to come.

GREAT! I can put myself into your story: body, heart, mind and soul. It is relevant in our global society; right now and everywhere.

Suggestion: expand this into a longer story. I think you've just begun. I'd like to hear more.

Thank you so much..really appreciate your suggestions :-)
i completely get that. i know quite a large number of materialistic people that are constantly stuck to what they have, want more, and never have any real friends. quite sad, they never pay any real attention to people that care abut them.

Absolutely beautiful. You've written this with an eloquence that breathes some truth into everyone's lives as surely most have though or reminisced about their past, present, and future. Marvelous piece :)
