Brooding Blues…

Sylvia woke up that morning with a thought so deep that she wondered how is that she had not seen it coming. Standing at a turning point in her life she knew her choices need to be very carefully analysed. Burnt her fingers too many times and the last burn was a severe one. Life, she felt was never fair to her. It hated her guts and spontaneity of her approach to everything. It could never accept the chulbuliness in her.

She had to pay a heavy price for her carefree attitude towards life. The lesson she learned very soon in her life was that ‘You are important to yourself more than anyone else. Other’s soon get tired of you.’


Leaving behind her bed she stood near her windows looking far across the cluster of trees and the chirping birds when her phone rang. And she knew her day has really begun and there is no point indulging in the past memories. She merged along with the hurry burry of the fast paced life. After all she still had to stay afloat in the middle of her life’s crisis. And she knew Life was never fair or kind to her. She was willing to take the bull by it’s horn. She realized once again life could never take away her inner grit. She wouldn’t be herself if that was taken away from her. She was born with it.

After all Sylvia was the mythological God of the forest and meant the spirit of woods.

Uhmm! What do I say abt myself. Love to read, write, watch tons of movies and loves music. Educated enough to enlighten a few things to a few some who shows the interest to listen. This is me in a nutshell. Will let out little by little, like the cat out of the bag. Ok I think it's time to let out one more passion of mine, which I as much love as writing, and that is cooking. Trying out different new recipies with a slight variation added of mine makes my culinary skills a little adventurous cuisine.

      1. Hahaha… So good to hear Tamil here. I will try da… Lack of time and some writer’s block also hindered the writing. I think I should attempt a bit more prose along with those poems.
        Thanks once again dear for the encouraging words.

  1. I can see there is some of you in this story. Maybe you’re in the same situation as Sylvia is in this short story.
    Let me tell you something – life on earth is not supposed to be a perfect place otherwise we will not desire GOD and His abode! 😊

  2. As long as you are convinced that life cannot take away your grit, you can be successful against all odds. A small advice to you Anamika- try to change Sylvia’s perception to life that life has been unfair to her. It’s all in one’s perception as to how one looks at it. God bless you.

  3. It was endearing, so on first glance, I thought you were depicting the present condition of green cover amidst us or rather the abode of zillion wild creatures small and big but through a more relatable form of human depiction. Your writing has some deep layers within. Sometimes, it takes more than one read, to see the rainbow in it.


  4. Thank you so much for so valuable a response. You have always been a sport and support throughout my literary journey. Glad you enjoyed the read inspite of the fact that you had to read a bit more time to get the essence of it. I am so thankful you took the effort to do so.
    Loved having you here.


  5. As we grow life has many things to offer ups or downs ,never it’s going to be easy way. We may fail or give up multiple times but when we have courage to over come it ,we move forward .Here Sylvia can’t easily give up and one can’take her inner courage and determination . So how can you say that life was not fair for her because she s born fighter and definitely I believe she will raise up whatever obstacle’s come .
    Thanks for sharing .

    1. Thank you for your response. You just saw a glimpse of her life, she has lived her life. People might say it’s not fair to say life was not fair to her. But I think Sylvia has her right to say as to whether she felt the life was fair to her.
      Yes life has certainly ups and downs. And we have to stay afloat too but one has the right to turn back and say whether she has more downs than the ups…. And this is her whimpering to herself…
      Appreciate your feedback…


      1. Thanks for the response …

        I too agree Sylvia has her right to say her perception. Let Almighty give her courage to overcome all her obstacle’s.


    2. Thank you so much for your response Mermaid. You have told rightly about moving on. Took some analysation about the whole thing and realized you are so right. Thank you for the photo contribution.


  6. Great story there Ana.For a moment I thought it’s a true story. Yes is meant to be unfair.But at the same time life teaches how to be strong and truly Sylvia lived upto the expectation of life.But the point here is why Almighty is never fair to life ? What is the sin of being alive ?I have no answer.May be you can enrich us further.Thank for this lovely narration
