A rare grace

The tactless remark fell into the cacophony

Causing a hushed silence which was deafening

She blushed with embarrassment but there was

No way to retrieve the words that were scattered

Into the universe like leaves which are blown

By the autumn winds to the four corners of the world

The object of her remark showing a rare grace smiled

And diverted the remark like an arrow which had missed its mark

Engaged her in a conversation, earning her gratitude

What a generous gesture it was she felt doubly humbled

A lesson learned and forever ingrained in her mind

An escape

An escape from the daily saga of dramatics

Life can overwhelm you so that is what we need

Once in a while to hide in a quiet place to think

Reflect on where we are going and what we want

Even if our ambitions and ideals are not lofty

We may have ordinary goals in our sights

We should be following them with full enthusiasm

And be proud of our achievements for not everyone

Can be a superhero, but we are the heroes of our story

So have a rest, contemplate life from an outsider’s view

And then forge ahead to get to the finish-line that’s waiting

Be happy and whistle away the blues

Throw your troubles to the wind

To your life and of those around you

Dampen that ego!

How do I say it in a poetic way

So that I don’t hurt your fragile ego

But say I must because you seem to think

That there is something superior about

All that you represent and think about

Sadly there is nothing original or genuine

About felling better than everyone else

People have been suffering from this complex

For centuries and it is always a false sentiment

You better take a hike and look around you

From that vintage point how the world looks

People all look the same when you see them

From a height because that’s when you realize

That we really are very small in stature as compared

To the universe around us.

Inspire

Every day I write and my only desire is to inspire

To evoke feelings of positivity and gratitude in those reading

I know a solitary writer cannot achieve much on its own

I need the help of those who read and then to promote it

To keep the idea alive to give it substance and take it out

Of its ephemeral existence and make it into something

That lives and breaths, something that has a solid entity

And that I why I write every day, so that I can inspire

Fixing The Attitude

How easy it is to be orgulous

Because we are prone to the negative

Side of the spectrum rather than the positive

Thinking we are better than others or more

Make for an attitude that plays to our detriment

But if you are jolly and happy, accepting others

As equals and deserving of respect and courtesy

Life will become much more pleasant, enjoyable

You just need the activation of the gracious side

Of your personality and then the stats will soar

Of popularity and life became better as you

Distribute happiness and get more of it in return

Spider-Man

A post inspired by the new Spider-Man movie!😜

It was a tough time for Spider-Man. He not only had to keep up with his school assignments but also protect his neighborhood from the antics of greedy Kingpin. It was causing a lot of strain on him but he was after all the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Kingpin was a dangerous criminal and Spider-Man need to be extra vigilant when he was up to his nefarious schemes. Kingpin had the local law officers in his pocket and they would not act against him, always using dilatory tactics so that he was never caught with evidence. So it was the nightly vigil by Spider-Man which kept the people safe from that criminal. Though very few people knew of this great service done by him!

Water breathing dragon

It is a sight to behold

The dragon instead of spewing fire

Was spraying water from its mouth

Though the flames were contained

Behind the firewall, there was still

Much heat and threat of destruction

That the city faced from the forest fire

So the kindly dragon, with the flow

Of water coming from it’s giant jaws

Was helping the city people to put out the fire

If we could also play the role of the fireman

Putting out the fires ignited by hate and ignorance

So that peace and harmony reigns instead of

Violence and wars around this world of ours

Do not cage them!

How can anyone be apathetic to this

Bucolic vista that surrounds us on all sides

I would take this view any time of the day

The only thing that make me careful, are the lions

Which roam the savanna in their pride

But this is their home and I would not want

Them or any other wild animal to be shut into

Cages and put on display for our amusement

Are you sick?

Are you making this ungodly noise

Are you sick? that’s why I can see you

Writhing on the ground as if someone

Is gnawing at your innards or are you

Making a fool of all of pretending to be

In agony and pain so that you can get out of

Playing the little league match you have today

It better not be a sham as we are going to the

Hospital right now and getting a check up

Oh! You are already feeling better are you now!
