Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 63

Prompt

Here is an intriguing picture shared by Harvey Kraft on LinkedIn.

The picture by itself can tell a thousand stories. But I am increasing the complexity a little. Here is a paragraph from another source.

So what exactly happened here? A woman felt powerless because she was unable to let go of a story she was holding onto which made her a victim. Even though she no longer saw this man, her former lover, she carried him within, and over and over again inside was keeping this version of the story alive.

TILL DEATH DO US APART

It seems there is no strength left in me.

I feel completely exhausted.

I can’t go on like this, I want to quit.

It has happened several times in my life.

Shamefull I accept that I had wanted to quit every time I felt  exhauseted

Everytime my conscience nudged me

‘How could you quit, there is so much to do, everyone depends on you?’

I was young then so summoned my willpower and got up every time. 

But now with age catching up, it seems an uphill task. 

I’m lying on the floor, helpless, hoping to go…There comes an extending hand for help, 

How could you be so desperate? Didn’t you promise, ‘ till death do us apart’?

Oh yes, I remembered. 

Indeed how could I leave him in the middle of our journey?

He was always there to support me, never grumbled, criticized or belittled me. 

What I was complaining about?

With a feeling of guilt, I grab the extended hand thankfully.

Indeed the show must go on ’till death do us apart.’

Didn’t once I advised everyone that’

When there is unrest or apprehension
When there is, in life a lot of tension
Take a break and retrospect.
When you overworked and very tired
When you are stuck in an old routine
Take a break and get good rest.
When dissatisfaction, and no fun in life
You think life is taking you for a ride
Take a break and meditate.

 

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. I like the multiple layers of pathos, helplessness, courage and finally valuing companionship. It just about sums up life at different stages. Thanks for joining in! Hope you are keeping well now.

  2. It’s been a lifelong journey, my love. I can’t go on.

    I’ll never leave you.

    But you must, my love. Go. Save myself.

    You’re my life. If you stop, I will too.

    I’ll be the death of you, my love.

    You gave me life. A good life. Now I wish for a good death… with you.

    Peace,
    Eric
