55 Fiction ~ Terminal #writebravely


He was amazed at the clarity of his thoughts while staring into the face of death.

He had erred, first in forming relationships and second, in maintaining them.

Did he deserve lying on his deathbed with no one by his side, then? He hoped not.

Holding the pen, he opined, “I must seek their forgiveness.”

  1. Why is it that we realise things at the very last minute? If only we could learn to live for the moment that we are in and enjoy it for ourselves and make it enjoyable for our loved ones too!!!

    1. May be we take too much for granted and forget to count our blessings. Too bad when any such thing happens. No one gains anything from it.

    1. How true. May be in the next birth or if he is lucky he can make amends in this life itself. Hope God gives him the chance.
      Thanks for your kind words, Anagha. 🙂

    1. The last few days in a person’s life are most about retrospection. Very few have no regrets. I wanted to tap that. Happy that you liked it. 🙂

  2. Oh yes, forgive we must. For forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and hatred. It also breaks the chains of bitterness and selfishness. Glad that he realized this!

  3. “He had erred, first in forming relationships and second, in maintaining them.” This say it all !! Beautiful way of finding and saying truth of life. Conclude this piece if possible
