I Choose to Call it Awareness



Written for 3WW....  Relish, Mercy, Foolish..


I Choose to Call it Awareness


I sought warmth
And you  relished burning me
In your fire
No mercy ever
But then  one question
Often haunted me
How did you ignite fire
With your heart
As cold as a glacier
Hey, did it hide some
Highly inflammable emotions
Under thick  layers of
Iced feelings
How foolish of me
Couldn't understand 
Such a simple truth
For so many years
But then, it didn't matter
I think I had started
Relishing to burn 
In your fire
As it kept on
Giving me renewed 
Strength like steel 
Thank God
You didn't realise
Otherwise you would
Have started 
Pampering me
To make me weaker
And now, ha, ha, 
It doesn't matter, for 
Now I have learnt
And turned in to
A practitioner of  happiness
Now I don't seek warmth
God helps me and leads me  
To the moments where I feel
All the warmth inside me..

You may choose to
Stay away, lest
The glaciers melt
Call it arrogance
Yet, I choose
To call it awareness..



And now a Haiku...


How foolish to seek
Mercy; sadist relishes and
inflicts pain to laugh..

God helps me and leads me to the moments where I feel all the warmth inside me..
