Dream of life …People and Thoughts

dreamoflife_peopleandthoughts

Yesterday night, I wasn’t able to sleep for some reason. I was awake, leaning on my pillow, thinking of nothing …!!!

Suddenly, I met with angel of death. I was frighted at first even though he didn’t look like the way we think of him… He was just an old person who had faint smile on his face, tears in his eyes and half torn cloths …

But he is angel of death … his presence implies death !!! So I was little worried..

I was sitting with him, totally frightened, I thought, “is it that its my time to pack everything up “?

After sitting there silently with him, finally I dared to ask, “whose time is it now that you are sitting here with me” !!!

He smiled a bit, looked at me, sighed and said, “for some time,  no ones time is gonna end on earth, so I’m resting here ” …

I had no clue whats going on … I just kept looking at him, noticing every single detail …

Numbness in his answer somehow relaxed me, I wasn’t that afraid now …

I said, “You are death, you come little close to us and people start praying god … but I’m wondering, how do yooooou feel ” !!!

He stayed silent for a while …

He said, ” Why is it that people praise god, praise life for all the happiness in their lives … and me !!! I clean up all the garbage here on earth, I take away those who are in pain, anxiety,  those on ventilators, struggling to breath … I free up those souls … and I still don’t get a single word of love …!!!”

I was stunned …

“My backbone breaks lifting all these masses, god slides his hands and I recover … I keep saying to god, that I’ll live with these broken bones… just tell someone else to do this work of being angel of death … huh ! after-all what will even he do? there’s no one to do it …”, he continued …

“I can’t sleep … Every single second of my life, I feel the hurt of taking off someones loved ones …They hate me, curse me … I wish I would have a power to let them meet their loved ones … just to show them that I’m not the one whose bad. I’m just doing my duty ..and that their loved ones are okay !!!…God doesn’t even allow me to do that …Sometimes I wish my death but then who will be my angel of death ? ”

I really felt very bad for him …

Have you ever wondered what must be happening to a shooting star after being wished by millions of people ? It must be wishing someone would be selfless enough to wish for it to go back to the sky and glow as it used to be …
