   The Rainy Season of Life

 

The <wbr>Rainy <wbr>Season <wbr>of <wbr>Life

 

     My life suffered a lot in a summer five years ago. My father died of an accident resulted from drinking, leaving my emaciated mother and two younger brothers alone. At that time,I was in a senior high school. After my father’s funeral, the whole family was in a worse condition than ever. As the eldest son, I had no choice but to quit school and work in a factory.

    Life went on without any wonder. I dare not to ask for more, just hoping to bring up two younger brothers. However, that’s not an easy thing, for I can’t afford their tuition even if I work from day to night without stopping, and much worse, I must take my sick mother into account. The present misery made me want to have another try, but it seems impractical, for I can’t lose this job any more.

    A thread of hope sparkled in those gloomy days suddenly. It was a rainy dusk when I put myself in the rain and walked in the street.

    Suddenly the rain stopped! To my bewilderment, I raised my head, and found that “the sky” was in fact a dark blue umbrella. Then I heard a deep voice.“Why not running without an umbrella?” a middle-aged man with one leg on crutch said to me, “If you run, you would get less drenched.” I shook my head,but after a second I thought: Right, why not running without an umbrella? His words shocked me deeply. Without my father’s protection,could I only be a slave to the fate,and my dream in childhood only an illusion?

    While walking together in the rain, I knew that he was a promoter from the city, and he received an order and paid much time on it. Facing this guy, I had no sympathy but admiration. I took the umbrella from his right hand and he told me that he once had dreamed of being a policeman, but an accident ruined his dream. Though his present work was demanding and did not suit for his leg, every outing was a wonderful start to him. He was glad that he didin’t lose heart and still “ran” on the road of life…

    It seems that everything is destined but not always. Enlightened by the man’s remarks, I went to a city in the south and became an assurance representative. After two years’ “running”, I got somewhere and my family turned better gradually. I came back to my senior high school for the dream in my childhood. The year before last summer, I eventually succeeded in my entrance to university.

    Life is like this: when you are in rainy days in your life, if you could’t find a way to prevent you from being drenched earlier, you would have been overwhelmed by it, but if you decided to get rid of it , you ’ll discover that the rainy days last not so long as you imagined.

    Everything is so simple: to run without an umbrella! When you run out of the rainy season of your life, there will be bright sky ahead of you.

跑出人生的雨季

   5年前的夏天,我的人生痛苦不堪。父亲因酗酒死于一场事故,撇下了我瘦弱的母亲和两个弟弟。那时,我正上高中。父亲葬礼后,全家人比以前的状态更加糟糕。作为长子,我别无选择,只好退学,到一家工厂打工。

  日子就这样平淡无奇地过着。我不敢再有更多的奢求,只希望把两个弟弟抚养成人。然而,那不是轻而易举的事儿。因为即使我每天从早到晚不停工作,也难以支付他们的学费,更何况我必须考虑多病的母亲……眼前的困境使我想再努力一次,但又好像不切实际,因为我不能再丢掉这份工作。

  一线希望突然照亮了那些阴暗的日子。那是一个雨天的黄昏,我置身雨中,走在街上。

  雨突然停了,我感到迷惑,就抬起头,发现“天空”其实是一顶深蓝色的伞。随后,我听到一个深沉的声音。“没有伞,为什么不跑?”一位拄着拐杖的独腿中年人对我说。“如果跑,你就不会被淋得湿透。”我摇摇头,却转念又一想:没有伞,为什么不跑呢?他的话普通却深深地震撼了我。没有了父亲的保护,我就只能做命运的奴隶,童年的梦想就只能是幻想吗?

  雨中同行时,我知道了他是城里来的推销员,他接到了一份订单,为此花费了很多时间。面对这个人,我没有怜悯,只有钦佩。我默默地从他的右手里接过伞。他告诉我说他曾想做一名警察,但一次意外事故毁灭了他的梦想。尽管现在的工作非常苛刻,不适合他这腿,但每次出门对他来说都是一个奇妙的开始。他很高兴自己没有丧失勇气,仍然“跑”在人生的道路上……

  一切都似乎是命中注定,但又不总是那样。那个人的话让我深受启发,我去了南方的一个城市,成了一名保险代理人。通过两年的“奔跑”,我取得了一些业绩,家境也渐渐好转。因为童年的梦想,我又回到了高中。前年夏天,我终于考上了大学。

  生活就是这样:当你处在人生的雨季时,如果你无法尽快找到防止雨淋的方法,就要被雨水淋透,但如果你决定摆脱,你会发现,雨季并非像你原来想的那样长。

  一切都是那么简单:没有伞,就跑!跑出人生的雨季,你前面就会是一片晴朗的天空。
