Hey guys, heres something a good friend of mine wrote that I thought was pretty amazing and wanted to share it with you guys. Leme know what you guys think.
“Partial Mistake – Misery of one”.
Today would be the day where problems could start to end. The sunlight today brought in a new ray of hope. This interview could change things forever. It could make everything get better, the way it used to be earlier. No debts, no worries.
One phone call could change everything. He did not know then that it would. No one knew.
It happened for the first time with him. He sat there in despair looking at the silver strands scattered on the floor. This never happened before. He had never shaved his head.
He did not know why…never imagined such a thing. He was taken so suddenly no one got a chance to figure out all that took place so fast.
The darkness was unusual. The loudness of this place was as odd as the silence. The people were strange. The food was peculiar. It was so different from the outside world. His mind would keep talking to him repeatedly, saying: ‘This place doesn’t exist. This place doesn’t exist’.
Every one looked the same as him. Every one wore the same color as him. The color looked unfamiliar to him.
Brown, which otherwise would be a color he’d sometimes wear as his trousers. This one looked as if the color never existed before. It was the color code of the central prison in Kuwait.
Only one thought would repeat in his head, sounding like drums beating harder and harder till the sound drained his ears and their sense.
It could have been stopped; it could have been taken care of. It was possible. The debt could have been cleared long ago. If only what he said again and again would be heard, if only the seriousness of it would be understood.
But to his misery, no one understood till it struck him hard.
Now, he sits there, alone, bearing all the consequences of his partial mistake. Hoping, just hoping that all this would end quickly and he could go back to where he really belonged, his family.
