Daily Prompts- Twirling the Mustache

~*~

Twirling his mustache he smiles

Injustice and inequalities make him squirm

Being kind and upstanding are the points salient

Of his character that is also just and valiant

People might try to bend him but he’s resilient

That is the image of a knight in shining armor

I hold in my heart in hopes of a rescue

One day from a world which is losing

It’s values of high morals and truth

Till then I fend off the falsehoods

And anarchy which surrounds us, the best I can

Daily Prompts- Opportunities or Challenges ?

I would love to forget

The problems that I face

To free my mind from the burden

To cleanse it of the debris

Or I hope to get an epiphany

A way to solve all that is causing

My brain to fume in fury, in chagrin

But since neither is forthcoming, I need to

Change my perception and see my problems

Not as challenges but as opportunities

To do better in life, to achieve something more

Something out of the ordinary, something remarkable

Daily Prompts – Writer

She needs to be adroit and clever

The writing has to makes due progress

The tidy desk is no indication of

The muddled state of mind she has

The muse is annoyingly elusive

And that big vulture of time feeding

On the schedules and commitments alike

Still, she feels she has things under control

Daily Prompts- Looking out

Looking out my front door, what do I see?

I would see what my mind and not my eyes see

I will pick the waves of thinking and decide

If it is rosy out there or glum and dark

Is the glass half full or half empty or yet

One cannot see any glass at all, just chaos

The spry old man walking and exercising

Can make it inviting for me to do the same

Or I can turn back in distress, thinking

What is the aim of life, but only to exist

If I tweak my mind’s gears, putting them in forward instead of reverse

I could see that life has so much in store for me

I’d welcome my muse, the positivity enhancer

And embrace with joy all I can see out of my front door!

Daily Prompts- Why create a ruckus?

If the rumor mill is churning out Tales

Maligning your reputation, why create a ruckus

The cycle of lies won’t stop by shouting against it

A dignified silence can be the best response

Some traffic in blatant falsehoods

Don’t let it bother you, don’t let them win

Why validate the lie with a denial

The flowers growing in the mud are still pure.

Daily Prompts – Smile for a picture!

What can we do, but endure

Fate and the curveballs life throws

There are no ways to change

What has already happened but to

Go along with the choices already made

Don a mask if you have to, to fool the people

But always be honest with yourself

Smile to hide the pain put on a brave face

Those you met socially seldom keep a track

Of your wins or losses, of your achievements in life

Sure they will be ready with a pen to sign

When you’ve made it big, they all would want

Your autographs and pictures together

Daily Prompts – History repeats itself!

History repeats itself because we refuse to learn from it!

All the remorse and regret of our actions prove to be evanescent and transient.

We look at the prospects of an adventure and plunge into it headlong, no thoughts about the precautions that need to be taken.

It’s like skating on thin ice, thinking that it is solid enough to support our weight, learning differently to our cost.

The affluent and the wealthy don’t give a thought to the poor, because they would never be like them.

Wouldn’t it be nice, if we for once saw beyond our noses, to the reality that stares at us across the chasm, of what is and what we think is!

And yet the history repeats itself again and again because we never learn our lessons the first time around.

Daily Prompts- Staying Warm

The storm broke and it was clear the next day

Then it boomeranged and came back for an encore

The young are enjoying the rain and hail

The fragile older people afraid of the cold draught

The comfort of their homes too appealing for them

They would rather not venture out and brave the elements

The fear of illness can sour their moods

But not every cold is terminal you argue with them

But they will wait for sunny days to set out

Till then they are bunkered in their safe havens, at home

Daily Prompts – Isolated Incident

How quick we are to form opinions

One isolated incident is enough for us

Generalizations and sweeping statements are a rule

Not the exception with most people

Why should we debate a point when we’ve already

Formed our opinion, made a judgment

Waiting and giving a decent chance is not our way

We don’t pamper the guilty with a fair trial

We condemn them like an errant spouse, who

Fails to do one task assigned to them

And would never hear the end of it

But see how quickly Tale turn

When we are facing the same situation

Now we are raising the voice, standing up

Do listen to our story without quick condemnation

Don’t you judge me on one isolated incident!

Daily Prompts- Valentine‚Äôs Day?

So you love me, care for me?

Your devotion is steadfast?

It would be impossible for you

To break my heart, to forsake my love

The care you take to never poison our love

Will be the hallmark of your attachment

I would have believed you, I’d really have

If I hadn’t found the pictures from the last vacation

Plastered all over your Facebook page

Posing with a new girl every day

How quickly you change your affections

No one holding your interest for long

Won’t I be a fool to take all your declarations of love

At their face value, as if I was born just yesterday!
