Her rules

Sashaying in her fancy finery

The jewels shining and glittery

The night is full of possibilities

She is ready to bestow her favors

But nothing is gratuitous here

In return for something you need

To give something in return as it is

The law of nature, at least the one she follows

In A Quandary

It is such a dilemma

It throws me in confusion

How to deal with phony people

This has me in a quandary always

We can treat them the same as they do

Putting on false smiles and act all sugary

But then it will be not us, it would be someone else

It won’t be a good bargain to pretend to feel what we don’t

If I decide to express what feelings that I truly experience

It would probably break that veneer of friendship

That expresses our ” relationship ” but I don’t see

A better choice as being false doesn’t sit well

On me, so I will probably delay my response

Put it on the back burner for a while

Sometimes things get resolved

If you let them be for a while

Attack of ego!

There is an insidious seepage of pride

In my thoughts when I preen myself

As I think I am pretty or possessing of

Other worldly virtues not of my making

It is safe to assume that it is an attack

Of pride and ego on my conscious thought

It is better to do my homework and preempt

This unwarranted emotion as I haven’t done

Anything myself to become boastful about

The qualities bestowed on me by nature

Eclectic Taste

Food is what we all need to live. Most sensible people eat so that they can live. And then there are people like me who live so that they can eat. Pretty unwise, I would say. We have eclectic tastes in food and we shamelessly cater to them. Always tempted by something sinfully rich and decadent. If an ice cream scoop has not enough calories, we need to drizzle some syrup on it to make it more so. We would choose food with most calories and least health benefits, at least that is my first instinct. I even would like to smother my fresh fruit with whipped cream or maple syrup, or both to make it extra yummy. Upon reflection I know it’s not a good idea. In fact it is a very very bad idea because it is NOT GOOD FOR MY HEALTH! But when I go by instinct, this is where I head. I literally have to stop myself all the time from making unhealthy choices. I am trying to train my mind so that I become a sensible eater. So far, very little success.

Broken Trust

How I dislike when something is lost to me

But what hurts the worst is when I lose trust

The trust I placed on someone who appeared worthy

But betrayed my faith and broke that sacred bond

I would still stay in their orbit but would avoid

Their phony overtures and gestures as I know now

What lies underneath it all is not trustworthy

Perseverance

Tenacity and perseverance are a second nature to me

Giving up and abandoning the task is not an option

There may be a gap between what I wanted and what I get

But I would try my best to achieve the goals that I have set

Some say that living in a world of fairy tales can be foolish

But I would tell them that dreaming the dreams of impossible

Will get me all that is possible today and tomorrow

It’s not putting a balm on my ego but facing the truth

That works for me each and every time, you see

In My Dream

I am in for a surprise

Standing at the edge of reality

I revel and rejoice at all that I have

Achieved, the success is sweet tasting

The victory is greater after beating all the odds

But it all turns out to be a dream

Where I am just in a state of

Nascent sleep, imagining

But my resolve is strong

I will get there if not

Sooner than later

Is beauty enough?

Photo credit; Pixaby

The beauty we inherit is a play of fate

What does glamour and charm matter

If the heart is not beautiful and free from malice

The landscape of our life has to be verdant

With all the lush green of kindness and tolerance

What is the aim of following the creed

Which don’t teach us how to be human

Not a fool

One directional and stolid

The public may think it’s inspiring

But it really is the same old wine

Packaged in a new charming bottle

Lack anything new or enlightening

A little or no percentage of innovation

How many time will you fool the people

With the same old tirades worded anew

And we the people are still willing to swallow

This gibberish and bluster without questioning

Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me!

Instigate Trouble or not?

We have the power to do good

Influence people for the better

Or we can instigate trouble

Exchange our halo for the

Pitchfork the devil carries

Its up to us to decide what we are going to be

We can surprise even ourselves

By the choices that we make when the time comes

Let’s not forget this truth in

The hustle of our everyday lives
