PROMPT FOR THIS WEEK

The word ‘compromise’ is just a theme. It need not appear in the piece. There is no harm if it does appear, or a synonym. The choice is yours.

मौत ने पूछा

ज़िंदगी एक छलावा है
एक झूट है
हर दिन हर पल तुम्हारा साथ छोड़ती जाती है
फिर भी तुम उसे प्यार करते हो
मैं एक सच्चाई हूँ अंत तक तुम्हारा साथ निभाती हूँ
पर फिर भी तुम मुझसे नफरत करते हो
मुझसे डरते हो
मुझसे समझौता कर लो
फिर कोई डर  तुम्हें  डरा न पायेगा
मैंने कहा
तुम सत्य हो शाश्वत हो
अनिवार्य हो
पर तुमसे कैसे समझौता करलूं
तुम्हारी टाइमिंग  बहुत गलत होती है
तुम गलत समय पर गलत लोगों को ले जाती हो
तुम गलत समय पर गलत तरीके से आती हो
पूछो उन बदनसीब अभिवावकों से
जिन्होंने खोय अपने लाल असमय
 पूछो उन से ,
जिन्होंने ने गवाए अपने परिजन
आतंकवादियों के हाथों
 उम्र थी जान गवाने की
फिर जो मजबूर, पीड़ित , बीमार
मरने की प्रार्थना करते हैं
उन्हें तुम तड़पने को छोड़ देती हो
बच्चों ,जवानों को अपना शिकार बनाती हो
कैसे करलूं तुमसे समझौता
तुम कड़वा सच हो, अनिवार्य हो पर
न्यायसंगत नहीं
काम से काम मेरी नज़र में तो नहीं
ज़िन्दगी लाख छलावा सही
मीठा झूट सही
पर सुन्दर है जीने का,
लड़ने का हौसला देती है
——————————————————

sometimes we look back

thinking
what if we hadn’t
made the compromises
 life would have been different for
better
or for worse
but
there is no use cribbing now
life
any way is a
a mixed bag of
hopes and disappointments
dreams and realities
victories and defeats
triumphs and disasters
sometimes you win
sometimes you lose
sometimes you have to  run against the tide
make compromises
if need arises
just be sure it’s not alone you
who makes compromises
rules should be
the same for everyone
don’t lose your heart
don’t complain
count your blessings
be proud of whatever you have achieved
keep your composure
spine stretched
shoulders straight
heart full of gratitude
head held with pride

Un-existing

Reena Saxena

 corridors of power
are too narrow
to accommodate
my flippant insouciance

mirrors
too sarcastic
to absorb
my bloated self

libraries
too intellectual
to accept
my base wisdom

temples
too bigoted
to understand
my surrender

I float around
In search of kindred spirits
and bounce back
from hollowness of oceans

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. ~Steve Jobs

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #89

https://reinventionsreena.wordpress.com/2019/05/30/reenas-exploration-challenge-89/

sad, depressed, heart-broken

wandering along the seashore

calm, cool, soothing water

invites

I take a dip in the sea

water  tastes like my tears

waves  caress, wash traces of tears

whisper in my ear ‘don’t break down or bow out

be like us

carefree and courageous’

I surrender

Floating with the waves

Time stands still to watch

Wind sings lullaby

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #86- Bleeding Edge

Posted on

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #86

PROMPT

This week’s prompt consists of two words –

BLEEDING EDGE

The dictionary meaning is- the very forefront of technological development.

 

The Bleeding Edge: behind the terrifying new Netflix documentary

The $400bn medical device industry is exposed in a horrifying look at a string of products that have wreaked havoc on patients

A terrifying new documentary carries a stark warning that a nightmare has been lurking in the medical industry for decades and it might be in your body.

“If we can’t change the laws and we can’t convince companies to put moral issues above profits, then all of us really have to be vigilant,” said The Bleeding Edge’s producer, Amy Ziering. “My great hope is you watch this film and then you are really, really, really careful and ask a lot of questions and do a lot of research.”

Millions of people have been harmed by medical devices and millions more will if nothing is done.”

But this success is not enough for either film-maker and they hope the public, lawmakers and medical community will push for change in the industry.

The Bleeding Edge 


the harm they do  for  profit
to the poor and ignorant
is irreversible
greed knows no bounds
for the betterment of some
some suffer
their excuse
bloody,
bleeding edge technology
my only hope
the selfless people
who come forward
to fight for others
as they care
they bring awareness
and try to
bring all sufferers together
to fight against
the policymakers and
medical fraternity
to change the system
kudos to these
social workers
