The permanent temptation of life is to confuse dreams with reality. The permanent defeat of life is when dreams are surrendered to reality.

Is there a greater tragedy than a promise that wasn’t given a chance?

We all trek into the vicissitude of life awash in a kaleidoscope of promises and optimism. Even as the horizon we are hurtling or ambling toward seem to move ever so slowly away from our reach, we harbour in us a promise, a need, a desire that keeps us from giving up. There is always a reason that supports us when we are beat, a reason to make that moment last a little longer.

There is no telling how long the journey will last. A vast majority of us see the end of the road coming and prepare accordingly in own way for the inevitable. Some of us are pushed to that moment of certainty and walk into the vast void of unknown and master their own exit ...the foundation of their plunge built on broken promises, heartbreak, or an unwillingness to stretch that moment of certitude.

But a few of us are blindsided by the suddenness of the eternal black and leave in a blinding flash of ordinariness that is as abrupt as it is overwhelming. What we leave behind is inexorable sadness and a penetrating sense of loss. All that was bright and beautiful a moment ago vanishes into the magnificent void of nothingness and what remains are wisps and strands of memories of a life that was cut short.

Destiny or chance, whatever we believe in, doesn’t hold a candle to this searing unfairness of it all.

Is there a greater tragedy than a promise that wasn’t given a chance?

Will miss you. You were a beautiful person Sooraj.

I would go as far as to say that a life unspent is perhaps more tragic than one misspent.
Sooraj is in a better place for sure : )
