Shipwreck



This is what I wrote for WL.. 

Then the tide came in. With waves as big as her itself. She sailed on courageously. But she was no match for Tsunami that the tide brought in. She broke into a million different pieces. Pieces of her were scattered in lands far and wide. Some parts of her, the tide carried away with him.
Last I saw her, she was picking up the pieces to join herself back. "I won't be the same," she said to me, "I'll be new. Maybe better? Definitely something stronger!" She said with a smile oh-so-divine. She maybe safe in the harbour but her love lies in the tide, the same tide that destroyed her once. Sail away to your love, to your true calling.

After I wrote it, a lot of people asked me what it was was about. I tell here. This blog has seen me rant about a lot of stuff. Most significant events of my life have been converted into stories of fiction. I've been hurt (no, not in love) but at work. People I trusted misunderstood me. Maybe they never wanted to understand. I gave in and I broke down. It hurt tremendously that my efforts went in vain and some innocent kids that to pay the brunt of me giving up. But if I hadn't I would have lost myself. (This is the story of that time of my life. I gave it the time of a love story but it was my life)

I had lost strength. The ability to trust myself. It has been more than a year since. Now, I have gathered strength back. Now, I'm going back to my tide. Well, not to the same people who hurt me. Because I do have self respect. But I'm going back to work. I'm going back to my children. I'm going to now MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
