Uncanny But True

Let me know if this story doesn't make sense to you... :-)
But there's a deep insight to it which should make sense to atleast a few.

It’d been a long day. I don’t know how I had got myself in such a precarious situation. Reflecting upon the trauma which I’d gone through in those tenacious hours, I realized that things could have been worse. In those wee hours of morning, things had somehow taken the right track, but only for a while. It seemed that we’d reached the perfect solution but there would have been many hurdles which would have had to be crossed if we’d chosen that path, because the future seemed quite bleak. And that little ray of hope just vanished into thin air.

So we’d to make a choice, a choice between the good and the bad, a choice between life and death and a choice which could’ve changed the entire course of our so-called plans for a better tomorrow.

Life never gives you all the time you need. At one point or the other, you’ve to decide whether you’re going to act upon what you’ve thought about or waiver from your principles and let destiny take its toll on you. The acceptable standards of doing things may not always be the right ones and sometimes having the courage to do things differently makes the entire difference required.

But that was where the conflict came, because not everyone thought like I did. Raging on like bulls, we fought over trivial issues which at times, made absolutely no sense. Everyone had their own opinion to handle the matter at hand and everyone thought that their solution was the best. It was hard to reach a consensus in such a situation. The circumstances demanded a compromise which no one was willing to make. No one was ready to think in that direction, which I knew would give us the ultimate answer for all our queries. The situation was getting out of hand. If I hadn’t taken that drastic step at that moment, then god knows what not could have happened further. Maybe we all would have met the same fate as the raging bulls meet in the field of war. It’d have been a total massacre. But finishing off one life to save many others was the only option left at that moment. It was gruesome but I couldn’t help it. I had no other choice left.
