Reena’s Exploration Challenge #150- ILLUSIONS

Posted on

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #150

Prompt- ILLUSIONS

Let it be a theme for the week’s writings. It may not necessarily be about privacy, but the various illusions we live under, and which actually make life bearable. Knowing too much would debilitate our sense of individualism, independence, achievement, or glory. It is actually a happy bubble we live in.

Life from now onwards

Never be same again

Illusions busted

myths are broken

That mankind is superior to all creatures

a tiny virus crushed us all

VJ’s Weekly Challenge #100: Pause

( for someone who ended his life, he might have been desperate but what about his father and sisters and all relatives and friends, who were very proud of him)

perhaps

a timely pause

before taking the final leap
could have changed
your perspective
does your decision
to end your life
affects only you
or your dear ones
who put their faith in you
stand by you
accepting all you whims
supported you
you died only once
they will die
a thousand deaths

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #138

I wish life can be that simple

the world is a stage

and we are the mere players

then we can blame

the producer, director, writer

all in one in this case

with no responsibility

of our acts

as we are just puppets

where someone else is pulling

the strings

and sleep comfortably

but if it’s

my life my rules

then the whole responsibility lies on us

for our choices

our decisions

our action

our reactions

take the full credit and

exit

with full contentment

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #110

 

It is in the darkest hour that

when I vent out my frustrations
after crying my heart out
or
by pouring everything on a paper to tear it and throw
of course at night
when no one sees or notices
I feel rejuvenated
as venting
blows away  the dirt
trying to pollute my mind
A light sneaked in the darkness
telling me
that
‘giving lots of  benefits of doubt’
to other 
makes 
life
more compatible.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #108

‘Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave

I know

I can’t change

anything in this world:

anything which is fake 

or

the attitude of people towards life,

towards the environment, poverty, religion

and their consumption of nature’s gifts

without sharing equally

I do not approve

either

nature’s law of death

why make people

in old age

vulnerable

why not they can keep

their innocence, fearlessness, and cheer

like a child

till the end

then let death come

with all its novelty

to carry on nature’s law

and allow them to  go slowly, gently, peacefully, graciously

down, down, down into the darkness of the grave

I wish I could say: 

and I’ve not resigned

but

what ho!

I have no power

no voice

no choice

though

I make a lot of noise

but here I resign.

What else can I do

except changing myself

only if I knew it then…

maybe I would have revised some decisions
or
traded carefully in tough situations
or
had been less impulsive
0r
whatever…

but one thing is sure

it would have  taken away

all the thrill from my life

would have hampered my growth

knowing beforehand is not profitable

always

it shackles you sometimes

life would have been like reading

a mystery book
or
a movie knowing

the end beforehand

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #103- Delightfully Disorienting Dance

Posted on

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #103

PROMPT

I have a video for you this week

https://aeon.co/videos/strap-in-for-a-delightfully-disorienting-dance-of-humans-going-places

If you do not have the patience to watch 6 minutes of it, use the following words as a prompt

Delightfully Disorienting Dance

Dance

of

life and death

thrust on us by

mother nature,

enjoy it or hate it,

or, get lost

in finding the meaning of it,

or play along as it wants you to play

Whatever

Makes no difference

to

Mother nature.

Just play along as 

birds, animals do.

We can’t understand

whether they like it,

enjoy it

or have grievances about it.

they just seem to

take it as it comes.

Only,

we

human beings,

Because we can,

complain about it.

Some accept, some go on whining.

Still however

difficult,

unbearable,

or confusing,

one may find it,

no one wants to leave

the party.

We also

try to dance along

to our best ability

then only

it becomes

Delightfully

Disorienting

Dance.

 

( Surprising facts- It’s funny to report that 90% of birds mate for life, And they even stay with their partners until death parts them. While there’s only a small percent of mammals that mate for life.)
