Of What Dies

What do you think of things which are about to end? A dirty feeling about something getting over? Some things do because they are just meant to, if we could have a decisive instinct of sensing them could we endure something about them without any loss or regret? Like how we remember our beginnings; the first day at school, the first cycle ride, the first crush, the first love, the first trophy in the shelf, the first pay check, the first home, the first car- like how these things seem positive, can we appreciate the way some things finish too?

We have a small heart for such things; the last few lines of a book, the last bite of chocolate, the last few days of a trip, the last few laughs in a conversation, the last few moments in a relationship, well think about it, it’s over before we know.  It’s either too stifling a noise or too loud a silence. When the new comes all that is left is weird reasons, disturbing nostalgia and some vague memories. Now who would agree with this line “If it isn’t beautiful, then it isn’t the ending” after reading what is in this picture.

When we let go something or someone, more so because we were determined to and feel great about it rather than just fighting with the sense of an ending, perhaps that’s the point worth all the applause and attention. It takes a lot more than courage, to decide to remember more than to forget. So what did you let go today and feel great about it, let me know. I like my new green tea with all the lemon and ginger and mint of course, but my last cup of coffee felt way better!
