The recast!

Everything was very weird that day! It was dark, the sky was red. It took a long time for me to wake up and I was looked up on as a scary creature. I once believed I was the greatest in the entire universe. I thought nothing would work or move without my exertion of strength, power. The pride and the legacy that I held for years were going to get shattered that day. I saw him, my little brother, getting ready to retaliate on me.I could not justify his retaliation. He felt he was not given all importance; does not wield as much strength as I do. He never changed or was a cause for change. The spring tides might wait for him but nothing else I cogitated once. But never have I disrespected him. Come on we brought human life. Without us nothing goes smooth. But my fate was sealed. I had to witness my gross death by my very own kin.
The clock started ticking, and I was expecting my brother to appear before me to blow me off. They happily were preparing for my demise. My death was so welcomed by the world, which once considered me of some incarnation! Some take my blessings, some stalk me for hours. It was annoying and eerie when they sent stalkers to keep a track on my pace. I never despised, but this day! They called it remarkable, they called it a history. I was dying! How would it feel, when u know you’re going to die and the world would see and rejoice and yet you have to work till you die. What if I had shut off before I died? What would have happened, had I not shown up one day? They never thought of all that. I see the flowers, bees, birds, and clouds as happy as ever. My counterpart was getting ready to blow me off, and take my position, my pride, the legacy that I was holding on to. It was not scared, for I am not afraid of death.It was not one or two years but fourty years for him to avenge his anger on me. Every day I turn back to my place after my fulfilled day, I have never seen my brother wait for me to treat me with greet. It read 10:50 A.M. I was beating for my life. I could not take this, I would mind if the cloud covers me, the wind blowing me. But my very own brother who perpetually held the universe and dominated to great heights shook my soul. I was burning; the clouds and sky became dark. I saw my brother approaching me. He was as young as ever. His pure heart reflected on his very appearance. Jealousy, the lust for taking my power, my vigor, and my pride was seen in his eyes. I smiled at him, as I did not want to disappoint him. I stood still there. I gazed at his white face as it has been years since I saw it. He approached my boundary surrounded by fire; the time was 10.59 A.M and in another wink I was going to be engulfed in his arms and the world would rejoice this moment. People gathered and hailed to see this very moment that is happening after fourty years in the history. My death was very slow unlike before. It was painfully long. Four hours of painful engulfment to death. Winds stopped, it was dark all of a sudden. I surrendered for my greedy brother happily. He blew me off. My death was captured. Those alien creatures and stalkers surrounded my half dead debris and spread their metallic rods. I smiled and resented the moment. Before i disappeared, he looked at me and said," see you, i am born after you die". And I was gone. The dark night prevailed. I took a new birth the next day.

I shined again!
