CONFUSION

Posted on

On my way to the morning walk
I met a centipede
walking leisurely in the park
I asked him
“Which foot you move first”
He stopped on his way
Tried hard  but could not decide
Leaving him there confused

Searching for an answer.

I moved on
While coming back
I saw it still there,
Scratching its head
I asked it what is the matter dear
He said
“I was walking before without doubt and confusion
Now I cannot decide
Which foot to move first
And this is the cause
Of my strife.”
It eyed me with disgust and said
“Some people
Can not take a right move themselves
but are busy in creating
confusion in others life.”

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  3. Again, very true. Many people live to cause tension. Some, accidentally so.

  5. Lovely Poem! That’s so true of some people….always finding fault with others and creating tensions. We should always watch our step instead of poking nose in other person matters.
