CONFUSION

Posted on

Confusion

On my way to the morning walk
I met a centipede.
Walking leisurely in the park
I asked him,
“Which foot do you move first?”
He stopped on his way.
Tried hard but could not decide.

I moved on
leaving him there confused searching for an answer.

On my way back
I saw it is still there, scratching its head.
I asked it, “What is the matter, dear?”
He said
“I was walking before without doubt or 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’t take the right move themselves
but are busy creating confusion in others’ lives.”

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.

    clever and amusing and a ‘stop and think’ thought for today – so much of our life is on autopilot

  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.
