A Painting!

She looked at the mirror, then stared at it and she kept watching it carefully; the mirror reflected a frame of a female in her late 30s. What astonished her is that she was the lady painted in the frame! Is it possible to find out one day that you're nothing but a painting!? The lady studied the painting carefully, it was a painting of a lady who is trying to escape out the painting but she was imprisoned in a frame! The background was dark and there was nothing else except a female prisoner!

The lady was extremely shocked as she thought herself to be a human being who has a life and a freedom to act! But, it was an illusion; she didn't have any! She started to weep, but no tears were shed! She was not designed to cry! She didn't have the right except if the painter would wish her to cry! It was her right to express her feelings yet it was too much for a painting!

Suddenly, the painter came in the room and lit it. He kept staring at the painting, he wanted to her to be more miserable! So, he kept drawing bars to make sure that she won't escape anywhere! After a couple of hours, the lady was in framed in a prison! She couldn't believe it and she couldn't do anything except to wait still!

A few days later, the painter sympathized with the lady in the painting because she looked too miserable than he expected. Hence, he changed her background to be colorful, removed the bars, created a smile on her face, and finally, he draw some butterflies as an apology for the mistreatment she received earlier!

The lady stared again at the mirror's reflection, it seemed a happy painting but in fact, she wasn’t; all that she wanted was to be alive and be able to express her true feelings! The lady's feelings were too strong to be hidden; so, her eyes reflected her deepest grief.

When the painter returned, he noticed the lady's grief. But this time, he didn't bother himself again! He just took the painting and simply threw it in the fire! Then, he started drawing another one!

I don't hear it, but I know it is talking to me, telling me about my falls and stands, dreams and nightmares, hopes and reality, and about people in my life and those who passed away. I am trying to ignore it; but deep down inside me, I know there is a part of me listing to it. Yet, sadness is an overwhelming burden that I am unwilling to take. It comes and brings all the unspoken words, the tears hidden by a fake smile, the pain in a seemingly happy heart, and the memories of the beloved ones who left us, whether on by or against their wills.
Hell, silence! What do you want me to do? It's over, it's okay for me like that... I don't want your noises to disturb my peace... or what seems to be like peace. I just realized that weeping is not the best way to overcome life. I have to stand, to fall, then STAND, then fall harder and harder, and then to STAND AGAIN! No matter what, I have to continue my journey, whether I like it or not, whether it is happy or not, and whether…


She was afraid to tell him the secret that she kept hidden for a long time. She was afraid that he may not understand her. She was afraid that she will lose him. Yet, his love was so secure that she never felt afraid when she was with him. He always supported her and cared for her. She believed him and trusted him. Yet, it took her time to reveal her secret.

She tried her best to be courageous enough to reveal her secret. It needed time and courage. The day she revealed her secret, he assured her it is ok. He still loved her and will always be with her.

Next day, he ignored her. She asked about him but he replied he wants to stay alone. She was shocked then she realized she was a fool again. She locked herself in her room, praying to God that she never trust anyone again! It is always trust that brings us pain!


What is time? Is it a memory from the past that lasts forever? Is it the present when we are facing the unknown? Is it the future consequence of the past and the present? I wonder and all that I know about time is that it makes us remember, learn, and die!!!
