Part-III Bring Me to LIFE

Its been two days since I'd touch that window. That sinful window. That angelic window. That painful window. That soothing window. My friends often talk about it, some have gained a lot, some have lost their souls. I wonder what would the window bring to me.

"Man cannot discover new oceans,, if he does not leave sight  of the shore", - Andre Gide.

Should I try? Should I walk on the path nobody has walked on? Or should I follow the footprints of the ancients? Should I discover my own destiny? What if I fail?
I went to the room. It was daytime. The window was throwing in the sunlight. No one was around. It felt warmer as I walked towards it. It is calling me. My new destiny screams my name.
I know what so ever lies behind these frames will alter my destiny. Be in a good sense, be it in bad. But, I'll be satisfied. Lest am trying. The recklessness is already stabbing my soul each second.
Finally, I collected some grit and reached the window. Even if someone was there to haul me from behind, I would still push it open. The pane was too tight, maybe no one has ever opened it before. The pane moved, a bit, sunshine entered the room from the corner. The pane slowly opened more, and enlightened my soul with freshness and sunlight. Yes, I opened it!
The pane led me into a new world. A world where newness brewed me up, sunshine hit my tiniest bits of mind. This is even more beautiful than I'd desired.
The world outside is green. The yellow flowers bloomed wherever I see. The scent of happiness traveled through my veins. White doves are flying. There's a pond which has tiny fishes clearly visible cos of crystal clear water. And in the center of this par- imaginative place, there is a tree. A not-so-common tree. It has all kinds of fruits and colorful parrots nesting in it. Underneath of which, sleeps unicorns. And look! there's this huge rainbow with the colors formed by God combined together. The mountains are caped with greenery and the sun is always up the horizon. There! I'll built my house there! Right near the trees. This a dream! No! This was a dream! which has come true! Alas!
The gleaming nature of nature has set me free! Has given me another life! Has tickled and captivated me away from the gloomy days. Its over! The suffering is over! Wasn't it worth enough to take the risk?
The question lies: What if the new world would not have been this amazing? Would I still be blithe?
Yes! At least, I tried and killed the albatross around my neck, of desperation of course.
And so, the story of the window ends. End of suffering with birth of jubilant. After all, Every finish line is the beginning of a new race. :)
