life is so confusing, there are lots of choices to choose from but very less options to pick, it all depends on how you want to live your life, to be free, to be persuasive, to be stubborn, or to be highly paid. the social and economic conditions are the ones which decide the way a person goes on with their lives. the choices he makes, the chances he takes, the hopes he has are all dependent and are decided by others and rarely by the individual alone. heart tells the conscience what it really seeks but then the mind leans on the practicality of the world. life takes abrupt turns, where you meet new people, lose old ones, dear ones sometimes, the minute you realise that you've lost someone, the past is long gone and we find ourselves unable to move on with the feel and unable to forget the thoughts and the emotions. the human mind is so very blunt at times as it fails to realise that emotions matter at times more than the circumstances. there are people who take the chances, there are ones who regret not taking them, maybe for their entire life. but it varies drastically, where on the average a person ones he loses something, instead of going for it, learns to live with the loss, with the pain, for believing that going back to the past remains a desert to be crossed all over again, for the mind slaps us with reality and makes us realise that there are certain things that no matter how much we persevere, we were just not meant to have. at times, we see this person, some special one, fall for them head over heels, then our hearts starts beating fast as if on a race everytime we see them. we feel that we were made for each other, we can’t live without them, we throw a tantrum everytime they give a glance at us, everytime they say a word to us, everytime they smile, they talk, they walk.. we feel like our breath would stop without looking at them even for a day of our life. sometimes the feelings are reciprocated, sometimes not. whatever be the case, the drama never stops.our heart behaves like a fool most of the  time and this, is on the top of that list. then comes the hard part, to choose to be with them despites all the hardships, for that is when life starts throwing stones at us, quite a lot to bring us back from neverland. there comes the time again when fate puts us on auction for the bidders are our heart, our mind, our family, status, situations, fame, sometimes the other person themselves, and at other times, we ourselves.some may deny the fact that all others except the heart are naive but not at all times, they prove crucial in many lives and have been the reason why poets, authors, literature came into being for the feelings are best when expressed in words. when a person listens to the heart forsaking all other factors, they continue to dwell in dreams for as long as their love is with them, they feel content. but this is not the case always as the other factors come into play in a major number of people's lives. they chose to live with the memories leaving behind a great scar, which for eternity lives among the memories to be forgotten yet impossible to do so. the same situation prevails whenever we face a bunch of options. the past remains in our hearts and every now and then, pops up to bring a droplet of tear at the corner of our eyes to state that we regret the mistake we made and at times to remind us of our choices we make, for the betterment of us, or for the others, which is the case most of the while.such thoughts go through the head of everyone everytime. but its the choices that differentiate us from all others. for the choices we make and have made, have shaped us to be who we are now. accept life the way it is, some may try to change it, well let me tell you, it works for very few. the question is are you willing to be one of the few??

chasing a dream, a long lost love may seem dramatic, poetic or whatever, you name it. but just because it sounds all cheesy and guey at times, is not always for the best. because  we will never know if it is the right decision. some choose to state it as right but when the love is not reciprocated, it is not worthwhile to pursue. the least a person can do for the one they loved dearly is to stay away and watch them be happy, even if that means that we are not part of their happiness, at least we can be content that we will not be the reason for their sorrow. this is how life works, not always do we get what we want, but nevertheless, we get what we need, for that is life and god's will. there is always a life after love, it is that part we find confusing, for many ask, is there a life after losing someone you thought was your life. well the answer is, there is. the heart creates a virtuality where we live with our loved ones, once we realise that it’s not real is when the problem arises. the hole, the vacancy that is left by one has to be filled by another, be it your mother, father, brother, sister or friend as always, or another love, but it takes on different forms. the smart thing to do is to take the choices life puts forth and decide to go on with our lives, for it was never ours to be taken. to sit idle thinking of only our loss, our pain, our misery, is not the way to face life, for you are no coward, your mother did not carry you for nine months losing her health, her sleep, her desires, neither did your loved ones wish you see you as such a zombie. once a person leaves us, we get angry, we crave for the attention and in the process forgets the ones who love us, we strive to not to hurt the one we love while in the process hurt the ones who love us. It is not to state that there will be no pain. the pain has no depth to be measured but the mere point is, it’s not the world's end. there is hope and once the wounds turn to scars over time, we would have a beautiful memory to look back in awe and wonder how far we have come. time is a great healer, for it can heal any wound, any pain, any heartbreaks, it is foolish of us to stay put without moving forward, for life is to be lived, taking all that comes in our way and not to rest unless we have reached the grave, there are contradictions to this view, which indeed is very true, for all is fair in love and war and that is the truth.
