Sorrow grips every hour of our existence. Hurdles and unforeseen circumstances raise their ugly heads at every endeavor we pursue and to add insult to injury there comes the ever so cumbersome dilemma of controlling emotions. A mere visage of practicality, a facade of normalcy envelops us throughout our turmoil. It’s like a mask that we unwillingly wear to fit in the so-called compassionate society. The unscrupulous dynamic environment in which we survive like a pact, in-fact it is an alien world to us. A realm of reality which does not make any sense to those, who have seen life at the other end of the coin. A fictitious world of Eden, where every joyous moment is an illusion, a mirage, constructed for the sole purpose of testing an individual’s load capacity, or to be precise and in laymen terms, to test how far a person can be bent, broken and battered till he breaks.
One certain aspect of life that does not seem to fit in the picture of existence is the resilience of the human spirit. How some people, even after enduring a living hell still manage to survive and like a boxing bag are willing to take more hits, knowing that they can do nothing about it. However, come to think of it, what is the meaning of such a life which is defined and punctuated by pain, chaos and suffering? A person who has gone through life in a way which is so utterly grotesque should just give up on it and finally find a place where he can rest in peace. It is my belief that this kind of thinking though may be perceived as pessimistic or even down right cowardly, there is absolutely no courage or an ounce of heroism for people who think that they can take whatever life has to throw at them and then live to tell tales about it and in the due course garner sympathy from the audience.
The path of a meaningful existence is to see the events through prism of reality, accept the truth of it and find a way to mark an end to whatever wrong is happening in one’s life, even if those steps lead to one’s end of his life.
Finding solutions no matter how extreme they may be, is not an act of cowardice, but its the right and the most practical way to approach the one element which people like us are most looking for……… and that is “PEACE”!!!.
