Kid: A 100 Word Story

“We have reached the graveyard. But will you now tell me why have we come here?”

“Wait for a while and you will know.” He entered the graveyard.

He had reached quite ahead when the other fellow jogged to him, “Where are we going?”

“Why, to pick someone…” He guffawed.

“Don’t be sinister buddy and tell me.”

He had by then stopped near a grave.

“Why have you stopped, who is buried here?”

He ignored the question and picked up the kid standing solemnly behind the grave into his arms, “I have come to get him, meet Rosie’s kid goat.”

LIFE ISN’T A FAIRY-TALE

Movies- Especially those which claim(or are partly meant) to show some part of the real life….

Here’s my simple definition for those movies- false perception of something real!

The life projected by movies, by varied books, by those “successful” sort of people we envisage to be in our dreams– its all fake.

Because there is no life without problems… Problems even arise in the life of  that person who claims to be the happiest person in the whole world(well, I don’t think someone would go on bragging about something like that). That is the central point around which our life rotates.

Life is a blend of joys, gloom, love, hatred, beauty and drastic things. Life consists of the moments- the million moments, both happy and sad, both memorable and necessarily to be forgotten.

Why?

Because

LIFE ISN’T A FAIRY TALE…………

I have always heard of one particular quote about life- Life is as we take it… Huh? Complicated? Right!

So, instead of explaining some silly-billy quote, I would rather talk about the life which isn’t a fairy tale. Well even in fairy tale, the princesses and the fairies have to deal with villainous stuff:-

1. Rapunzel had to get across her evil guardian to meet the boy of her life.

2. Snow White had to go into deep sleep because of the evil plan of the wicked Queen.

3. Cinderella had to face the agony while living with her evil step-mother and her daughters.

Take any fairy tale- it isn’t an easy tale either.

So, how could we believe that the life is going to be full of happiness and joys and blossoms and love.

Well, those who believe so and those who defend the false projection of a life like this- you’re wrong. Be practical or psychological, theoretical or philosophical, spiritual or material, you’re definitely going to see through the dark curtain which makes you believe that someone’s life is perfect and makes you grieve for it.

Life isn’t a fairy “tail”

It is just like a boat’s first sail

How it floats on the water

With a hope of smoothness later

How it appears with a strong sweetness

But indeed it faces the water’s hardness

How it sets the sail forward

Of course it isn’t meant for the coward

How it moves, sets towards the destination

It doesn’t project the charm of the mansion

How it struggles in its path

Facing the natural wrath

Life isn’t always beautiful

It need one to be dutiful

Tackle the difficulties even if it is hard

Since it has to reach the final yard.
