Writing Prompt: Burnt https://sabethville.wordpress.com/2014/01,31/365-days-jan31st-burnt/

My house was burnt yesterday. There were things I left behind. I wish I could take them with me. I know why I couldn’t . It was so sudden. I also had to get out fast. I couldn’t look for my clothes I just bought. I didn’t get a chance to wear them. My gorgeous shoes. My favorite dishes.

I can only sit and cry because I was unable to take them. The thought that I was safe with my family and my pets, brought me back to reality.

I can always start buying these things slowly. I should be grateful I am alive.

I have learned one lesson from this tragedy. I must not attach me with material things. After all when I pass on I won’t be taking anything with me but my deeds especially good ones.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear this dear. I’m glad you and your family are safe and sound. I can understand that it’s not nice to lose all your precious things, but like you said, those things can be bought again..

    Sending you much much much love and light… And heartfelt prayers.

    Best wishes,
    Shaidi

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this story. It is fortunate to be able to write this as a fiction, instead of nonfiction, story.

    All good wishes,

    robert
