The Things We Leave Behind
The things we leave behind disappear from our lives — but not the world. This week, make one of them the centerpiece of your post.
“Nothing in this world is permanent, every thing is temporary. Even earth is temporary. Only SKY is permanent,” he had said once.
The whole line struck my mind seeing this topic.–
Standing near the window with a cup of coffee in hand, I try to feel the downpour. I see a green grassy field inside the compound of an army barrack. I find peace in the sound of rain.
I take a deep breathe.
All random things cross my mind; life, love, family, job, career, friendship… memories.
I feel Memories are the best thing we live with and leave behind. Happy ones and not-so-happy ones.
Enjoying the first sip of coffee, I recall some memories. So much has happened in these 22 years.
A 10-year-old normal happy-go-lucky child had lost her smile.
In the age, where kids of similar age get all the love and demands fulfilled, she had to go through a broken childhood and a broken family.
The age when fairy tales, white horse and dream of price charming seem real, this girl had to go through the worst reality and see the true colours of people. To her, fairy tales were all lies, neither prince charming existed nor they came riding a white horse..
All she had was a broken childhood, a faded smile, a broken family, worst relatives, the lost innocence (= not virginity but back-stabbed by so-called-own people).
10 years on, she has everything, The family that was broken due to ‘unwanted family politics’ has come together. She has a happy-go-lucky family, her parents and her sister. Her smile is back. She is showered with love and care. A very supportive family and lovely friends. She is still working on her career. What more to ask for?
And, the Prince charming?? 🙂 He will find her someday 🙂
This is what I want to leave—happy memories, happy heart, twinkle in their eyes, a pleasant smile and a better world to live in —
