Hatred

Posted on

Daily Prompt: Unleash Your Inner Dickinson

Sometimes its just not easy to follow
“hate crime and not criminals”
When criminals kill for lust,greed and their false beliefs
When they are indifferent to
Innocent people’s suffering.

Hatred,

Killed a part of my heart,
A  part of my sweetness,
And from the pain of my wounded heart
I’m still recovering.

My Shadow- A mystery

Posted on
Sometimes in the front of me
       Sometimes it was behind 

Sometimes on the left
        Sometimes  on the right 

Sometimes it was within me
           And sometimes just stood outside

I thought I was bigger ard better
           Far superior and tall

And it was merely my shadow
           Destined to follow me after all.

But what it did to me
            Was not at all fair

As I was no more
            And it was still lying there 


( Me and my inflated ego)

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 6 – Counterintuition

Counterintutition is a seemingly simple concept– it represents a truth that is contrary to common sense or the expectations of intuition.
Some examples of counterintuitive situations: You burn calories when you’re sleeping, flailing around is exactly the wrong thing to do when drowning, and beautifully speckled dart frogs can be poisonous to the touch.

Now my take on it- I have come across so many counterintuitive phrases, it surprises me that even after being proved wrong they are still in use. Here is a list-

1- Practice makes a man perfect but  no body is perfect.

2- Men are more intelligent, powerful, entrepreneur etc. etc. etc. than women, and we all know the truth.

3-  Men are distracted by how a woman dress , especially in some of Asian countries they are forced to put veils, otherwise they are so pure and innocent.

4-  Women are weaker sex whereas  , everybody knows who needs all those medicines.

5-  Crocodile’s tears , they are not at all unhappy while eating but shed tears.

6- People with different views or different species can not get along

                                 There are so many about food or exercises,  I can go on and on but I think I should make it small and simple.

 

Leap Of Faith

Posted on

We were poles apart

Destined to come together

In the name of God love and friendship

We took leap of Faith

Sometimes our paths were dark

Sometimes they were bright

Our compassion and compatibility

Made us bond together

And God set everything right

Compatibility at its best

Compatibility at its best

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Metal

” What metal your heart is made of

If not melts with others plight

Instead of helping those

Who are suffering

In the name of religion

You choose to fight “

(  Indira )

Cee says – show off some of your own photos that highlight items made out of metal .So here are they-

A Knock On The Door

Posted on

Christmas around the corner,
Sweet smell of cake hovering around.
Old couple , confined in a room
Holding hands , comforting each other
Remembering golden days of
Partying with children and relatives.
Now, all busy with their life.

Old couple,

Forlorn, depression setting in, still
Trying to count their blessings,
A little hope in their heart,
Awaiting anxiously,

A knock on the door.

Take A Break

Posted on

When there is unrest or apprehension
When there is ,in life a lot of tension
Take a break,
Take a break, and introspect.
When you overworked and very tired
When you are stuck in an old routine
Take a break,
Take a break and get good rest.
When dissatisfaction,and no fun in life
You think life is taking you for a ride
Take a break,
Take a break and meditate.

 

( My advice ” Take a Break ” was taken, very seriously and literally by my son.)

Innocence

Posted on

Only children can teach us

Love without affectation

Trust without calculation

Friendship without discrimination

As their innocence knows

No artificiality and manipulation

 

 

Silence is golden- sometimes

Why it is that
foolish people are compared with donkeys
and not with
cow, zebra , giraffe or monkeys
me thinks,
the answer is simple
as you may say
both don’t know
when to keep mum and when to bray.
( No offense intended for donkeys, they are lovely and hard-working . They are just stubborn, single-minded and will go to extreme lengths to get what they want, especially when someone indicates “No, you can’t have this. “)
