On the ruins of the past

‘On the ruins of the past, you may choose to eternally mourn or recreate and rebuild new life.’

‘Idle thoughts, all. Two wasted years of inaction and you want me to tread the path of a recluse, again?’

‘It’s only fair to give yourself a second chance.’

‘And run, like an escapist, in the end ?’

‘You have repented it, every day ,for the past two years, haven’t you ? Fill up the form and let  past regrets motivate you to build anew.’

I  scan through the results and find victory . Finally. Rose’s encouraging words echo through my re-constructed promising hallways.

  1. This is profound, a great life lesson. Good job.

    A small grammatical or perhaps typing hint–there should be no space between a word and the comma following it. Example: “On the ruins of the past ,you. . ” Should be “On the ruins of the past, you. . .” The space comes after the comma, not before it. A small technicality, hope you don’t mind my pointing it out. Once an English teacher, always and English teacher 🙂

    • I really appreciate the fact that you pointed out the mistake, Linda. Thank you . Also, I would love your inputs and feedbacks on the stories, their construct and how I could improve on them. I loved and revered my English teachers and your students were blessed to have a caring teacher in you . Thanks so much for the encouraging comment, too.💕
