Mid-Life Abyss

There are mountains and vales in life. There are youths and old people. Old people hang on to ancient wisdom. Youth dwell on latest technology. Middle aged people have nothing to claim other than daily trip to work. We can only live between sad stories and reality, in between enjoyment and memories, in that moment when life is diluted by mundane things that sometimes is devoid of any sense. We can plateau in between mountain and vales, between old age and youth but the chances are that no one will ever remember you in your struggle during mid age through life. This is what we call a mid-life abyss.

  1. A wonderful post. It is poetic, philosophical, appealing and at the same time, powerful. I guess this will define your writing.

  5. Sounds like this expression is a SOS call for another episode of turn around in life. What do you say Tshering?

  8. People also say, youth is full of blunders, mid-age full of struggles and old age full of repents.
