Excuse me for I’m naïve,
Yes I admit not to know what you do,
Forgive me for I cannot laugh,
Perhaps on the joke you laugh your heart out to,
Excuse me for my indifference,
For I do wish to choose what I read,
And yes I apologise, if my honesty isn’t that sugary.
Out there lay naked truths,
Waiting to be known and understood,
Out there lies cruelty, harshness, plain monotony,
And here I wish to pick,
Safety, of heart and mind,
Over the drugs and drinks you use.
Mistake me not for generalisations,
For I thank God for the nice people too,
But just if you can excuse me,
For not knowing many (truths)
But just a few!
They say honesty is the best policy, now I feel it isn't even one of the policies for no one likes an honest person, you're either blunt or blatant or stupid, never honest in the eyes of the world.
**f my honesty isn’t that sugary Haha I so connect with this. Its a tragedy that there are too many who sugar coat and candy-lize their words and so few who mean their words .. hmph
Well written post, again! you get better and better :)
Beautifully penned poem, Aakriti!Life is about making right choices!
Thank u so much Rahul Sir..while life is abt making right choices, many a time the way ppl seem to move ahead with time and with 'their' lives....its just makes me question and at times doubt if the road m treading has any "good" in it...
Crysty.....gone is the decade of appreciating ppl who are honest. World with each passing moment is turning into a selfish, wicked one...and we all are a part of it, perhaps what differs is the degree to which we all are mean...it's not sumthing bad abt being selfish, but yes innocence is sumthing I don't get to see these days...it's like saying 'kids are born all smartass in today's time!! ha!
I Don't think Honest is the best policy. Rather..honesty is THE only policy. :)
Kunal.....ayiye janaab!!!....THE ONLY policy? are u sure? i have doubts over it...
Well no one knows all the truths .. so if you one a few truths then thats worth something ..
and these few truths help us making the choices that we make and all ..
Doubts are good. We should always have those. ;)
Sometimes ignorance is bliss.:) Nice little poem on the innocence and simple things. Good read! :)
Kunal: Doubts ke ana ka bhi time hona chahiye...not when life is screwed from everywhere...
PS: I know m creating a paradox here.
thnks Bikram....those words are nice to hear:)
:DEE :) Thank u....
very well crafted...:-)
