I will run away. The idea is cemented in my mind.
No, there’s nothing you can do to make me stay.
If you really cared, this act of reconciliation wouldn’t have been so delayed.
You speak of faults and mistakes. I think of infinite possibilities and propitious beginnings.
Where will I go? And with whom?
Why do you ask such peculiar questions?
Is running away in pairs more fashionable? When will this redundant concept be buried?
I’d like to smother the doubts and fears that accompany such a bold decision. Press down hard upon them till they gasp, sputter, and relinquish their oppressive grip.
There’s only room for one on this quest of self-revelation.
That’s how I see it. I am not running from but running towards. It’s not an escape but the attainment of the things I have always wished for.
You call me a deserter. Now I question you. Who am I leaving behind?
This life is my own. I have come here alone. No one will accompany me when death is upon me.
Father, mother, sister, brother, son, daughter, and many more ambiguities. Thoughtful labels we assign to one another. Their significance only lasts till life is within us.
Then they are gone. Poof. A vanishing act that needs no talent or practice.
Now, out of my way. We could do this all day. My heart is deaf and blind to your pointless chant – Please don’t go.
Save it for the others who will also be leaving. Do you really think I’m the only one?
This is the start of a new revolution. DISCARD and PROCEED.
Now, don’t compare me to an ascetic. They simply wander off in search of enlightenment.
The light already shines bright inside me. It will show me the way. Unlike you, it won’t mislead me.
To hell with you, guilt and regret. You have controlled me for too long. I owe you absolutely nothing.
Bye-bye and good riddance!
She sees what the mirrors show her. They often control her. Those Evil Mirrors have a mind of their own.
