And The Story Goes On...1 min 460 1 min 460
Whenever I met an ending in my life
In the form of an unexpected death
In the form of a failed relationship
In the form of a discouraged dream
I would drown myself in misery
Like a shipwreck that cannot be pulled out
Like a pirate treasure that cannot be discovered..
After I started writing stories
After I started gifting endings to my characters
After I learnt to let go of my fictional friends
I understood that every end births a beginning
Every resolution of a character arc
Is a rebirth of the character in the dark
Every "...happily ever after" is simply a "So, here after..."
Don't we truly understand the value of a person
After he leaves this world?
Don't we truly understand the love of a person
After she leaves a relationship?
Don't we truly understand the power to pursue one's passion
After it leaves the heart?
How do these then become endings?
Aren't these new beginnings in a 'wiser' us?
After all, creating new memories
Isn't the only way to a happy life..
Learning to look at old memories in a new light
Is also a step towards joy..
