Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

One day

Sitting on your comfy armchair, one day, you will not find peace. You will have everything you ran after, everything that you thought completed you, everything you left the previous ‘every-things’ for… But what you won’t have will be peace. Comfort. Inner harmony, no.

It’s okay to be realistic and responsible rather than passionate or dreamy when it comes to making important life decisions. But “for what it is worth, let us attempt to cherish our human imperfection.” You failed there.

And one day, it will return to you. The pain one inflicts upon others always finds a way back to the giver. It just does; that’s how life is. And with that faith, I can rest in peace. I actually think I will find solace in this thought, and the courage to move on, because I know one day you will know. One day it will hurt you just like it hurt me today, and though I know what a better virtue forgiveness is, I don’t plan to forgive you. Not now. Peace is the last thing I’d want to give you. Prayers, I still might.

    You have started to write painful things. Well it kind of feels painful to say that I felt happy that you still write, I was looking at the list of my favorite blogs and almost every one has stopped writing.

    One day you’l stop writing. That day shall never come.

      I know I will. But one day I’ll write again, too.

    Yes. this one brought tears to me. Sometimes, to forgive is something we can’t afford to give…
    may peace prevail though..
