Harry Pushed Her Essay

601 words - 3 pages

Old Age.

The beauty of old age lies in its deep understanding of life. The teachings of age have an undisputed edge over all other sources of learning in one's life. Aged people with wrinkled faces, white hair and trembling hands have faced the traumas of life which wrecked havoc and made them physically weak but they are facing wee hours of life gracefully. Life has played all kinds of games with these experienced players and now at the fag end life has surrendered and opened its arms to give them a final hug and is preparing to release them from all the bonds of living beings. Sitting on the park benches this wrinkled frail face of life is a storehouse of its secrets, ready and willing to open up at the slightest provocation. They have so much to give and so little to take ...view middle of the document...

To understand and accept our limitations and leave certain things in the hands of the supreme power makes the life so much lighter. We take the things too seriously, whereas these are the predestined phases of life, which we are passing through. Nothing is permanent in this life all things have transitory nature and the situations keep changing. It is we who try to cling to one set of circumstances, forgetting the fact that life has so much more in store for us and we should look ahead. A learned person has written a small prayer that says, “God give me the serenity to accept the things I can't change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference”. If we make this the main principle of our life, it could become so very beautiful, but the inbuilt human tendencies make us do otherwise. We lack the confidence and courage to accept the verdict of God. These traits come to us with the passage of time and different phases of life bring us closer to the ultimate truth. Older we grow the wiser we become. It is the wisdom bestowed upon us by the years that we have spent in this world. There are moments of elation and there are moments of repentance, but there is acceptance of the fact that the clock cannot be turned backwards. Whatever time is left to us we should live fully now that we are so close to the truth of life. Finally, he said that, May you be lucky enough to reach our age and stage of life to experience yourself whatever I have defined to you today.

Tears silently sneaked out of my eyes and I bowed in respect to these elders who have survived all the rogueries of life and come out victorious to achieve the distinction of old age.
