In a get together of friends and foes
He was abused and made small
He didn't defend, oh! he couldn't
For, he wasn't there at all..
It's not that I don't want a friend,
It's only that I can't pretend
If you are real without a mask.
Welcome, you don't have to ask..
A rose smilingly bloomed
Spreading aroma and fragrance
An ignorant one plucked it
To have it all for himself..
People do this, and it's maddening. What part of the self cannot be satisfied with letting things be but must claim and take and brand with a personal label?ReplyDelete

The most beautiful face can some times turn out to be the most decieving one and the Saint could turn out to be a swindler.
It's not the most soft spoken one but the one who has the courage to speak the truth,
It's not the most religious one but the one who follows the sacred path,
It's not the selfish one but the selfless creature - who I term as been wearing his real visage, the rest is all facade.
"Goodness is something that should be imbibed in you rather than an act for you; for you may be the best actor of goodwill to the people but you should remember that the real judge are not they whom you are popular with, but it is HE who maintains your scorecard."

Indeed. I agree with the previous comments. The second one is what won me over. The most profound thought expressed in as simple a manner as possible. Quietly alluring. :)ReplyDelete
