Reena’s Xploration Challenge #232

Posted on

Some of you may die, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.

MISSION

“Some of you may die, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make in the name of almighty God, for a great cause.

”Words reverberated in the big underground room full of unhealthy-looking guys.

Their eyes as if under the influence of drugs, showed no emotions, almost vacant eyes.

Their mentor with well-oiled mane peeping out from the headgear, well-groomed beard, rosy fully nourished skin and checks, eyes full of greed, lust and arrogance, and protruding belly, was looking fully content with life.

He barked again-

“You are the chosen ones by the great almighty to spread his message in this world. You are to eliminate those impudent non-believers of our faith by sacrificing yourself. I understand you have no regret in selecting this path. Your families will be fully compensated. I hope everything is clear about what is expected of you all.”

There were murmurs of meek acknowledgment.

They knew death was awaiting them either way.

What more can the poor kids do?

Though sometimes, when sober, they thought of asking their mentors, why they or their relatives did not accomplish the mission themselves and go to heaven.

They lack the guts to ask when a hefty sum was given to their parents to buy their loyalty.

They summoned all their courage to trigger the invisible explosive device wrapped around their waist when the time comes.

I am a loner.

Is this a curse or a bliss?

Am I right or wrong?

Should I change my attitude,

to fit into society?

#228- Assortment

BITTER TRUTH

Among the assortment of 

Tasty

Mouth-watering

Delicacies

On the platter

I feel sad 

For the singled out 

Untouchable

Bitter Gourd

Though

It is the best friend of your gut

This is the bitter truth about

The bitter guard

But

Who cares for the bitter truth

About

The balance between

The good food and the bad food

When it comes to

Titillate

Your taste buds

#PROMPT 225

What does this image inspire in you? Let it all flow out. Create order in what appears to be disorder.

FREEDOM

all sorts of  incoherent 

mischievous thoughts, 

buried deep

showing only the 

presentable side 

to the world

till now

in a weak moment

I uncage them

they fly out

in a torrent

exposing

the real 

eccentric

chaotic 

me

my efforts

to organize them again fail

my scared face amuses them

once tasted freedom

can they be caged again

PROMPT#224

1.

  1. If I were an app….

2. Quote

Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do, and what is right to do.

Peter Stewart

Choose one or both, and write whatever comes to mind.

—————————————————–

Oscillating 

like a

pendulum

between

what I have a right to do

and

what is right to do

justice is delayed

the mad wolves

roaming free

harming many

the solution is simple

like mad dogs

they must be shot dead

but

do I have the right to do 

even if it is

the right thing to do

Reena’s Xploration Challenge #223- No Mercy

Posted on

PROMPT- #223

The theme is NO MERCY

I feel no mercy for the criminals who kill just for pleasure, for lust, greed, and their egos.
No mercy for rapists, terrorists, and people who commit heinous crimes, through acid on others, oppress weak and poor.

No mercy for the layers who defend criminals for money, and to win the cases will go to any length. They will distort the pieces of evidence. They temper with the birth certificates to prove their client juvenile even though he was the cruelest one of the lot who committed the most heinous crime.

All thoughts of ‘hate the crime, not the criminal’, and ‘ forgive them for they don’t know what they are doing’, evaporate.

They are guilty of changing the normal people’s mindset, of killing a part of people’s hearts, their sweetness, and their innocence.

 I wish I could make them stand in a line and shoot them.

 ‘Some just don’t deserve to live.’

Am I wrong in not showing any mercy to them?
