There was so much i wanted to write but somehow words have dissipated into thin air making me feel utterly helpless.
Helplessness. that is what has been driving me to the edge. Even though people say positive things and tell you about optimism and hope and say all those nice flowery words, you know deep inside- you are helpless. life is taking you exactly the way it wanted to, and despite all your efforts, wishes, prayers and positivity, you cannot prevent things from happening they want to.
Life. who has a guarantee for it? you? me? no one.?anyone?
If tomorrow a truck runs over me and i die. that’s just it, isn’t it? who can combat that? no one.
What if some one you love is undergoing physical pain and physical decline owing to a life threatening disease- and there is absolutely nothing you can do to make that person feel better- you feel helpless.
Helpless.helpless.helpless. spare me the cliched words of encouragement and speeches of optimism-because you know you practice it religiously infront of the person you love. But can you take the pain away? can you wave your hands, snap your fingers and cure the disease, recuperate the body and give good health. you cannot. you cannot. helpless. helpless.
There are no guarantees in life, especially of the next breath you take. How can people be scheming, mean, rude and insensitive to other people in such a circumstance?
Take online forums, sometimes i see people going entirely ballistic and getting personal and mean beyond sense with other people. why? do they think that by sitting infront of a computer and writing smart words of taunts and sarcasm, they are achieving anything? Who knows the person you are being mean to, may be undergoing severe mental stress, may be going through a bad patch, may be undergoing depression and just one mean word may have driven them to the edge. think about it. life is short and unpredictable- why not spend it being kind. we all need kindness. someday you may be sitting on the other side, and you may craving for a kind word too.
Be helpful to each other because the truth of the matter my friends, is that we are not invincible. we have no guarantees- especially of the next breath we take.
