March , Oh March… How I love that month, for plenty of reasons…
Just the fact that tomorrow will mark the beginning of this, for me, holy month, makes me sigh a sign of comfort and joy.

Letter from a Lifeful to a Lifeless

If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

Human Wisdom!

As people gradually get exposed to life,
They gradually start putting on layers of masks.

And gradually,
They gain belief in those masks.

But their pain sprouts,
And unwillingly persists.

Also their dilemma,
Mercilessly aggravates.

So they gradually lose faith
In those masks that once replaced their face.

Yearningly they start,
To need their true selves.

Then gradually they start,
To unfold those layers of the masks.

Those layers of falsity they once put on,
Aiming to discover their true selves.

Only then, they gradually gain belief,
In their true selves.. in their hidden treasures!!

–This is the rise, fall, then rise of human wisdom!

Good times.. Bad Times

Good times.. good memories, never die away!
They may seem to end,
But their impact remains,
As vivid as yesterday.

Bad times.. tend to fade out!
No matter how hard you cling,
Out of fear, sorrow or learning.
Bad times, today or tomorrow shall die out!

Good times taste sweet,
Bad times are as bitter as fear.
Good times seem short lived yet last as long as you live.
Bad times’ pain seem strong, but not for those who want to live.

Good times.. Bad times,
We learn that life moves on.
Whether hurt by pain or reminiscing on moments which
Saw you happy and persistent to carry on!

Maha.
