Concepts 21


Wants or desires in whatever name they are called
Keep drilling the mind whether it is active or in slumber
In darkness even the inseparable shadow ceases to exist
But wants and desires will never leave us even in dreams

Playing it safe most people prefer in life
Fear daunts in taking any risk that is bold
Take the risk, if a winner you can lead a team
By losing you can use that experience in guiding others

Any fiber on its own can withstand no great force
Woven together into a rope that can pull mighty objects
Small ants with combined efforts kill insects bigger to their size
efforts in cohesion can create wonders which may appear tough otherwise

a bullet shot into the body can be removed with some efforts
a life ruined by a blunder can be corrected with some planning
the rupture caused to ozone layer can be bridged with some measures
comforted never the heart from the hurt inflicted by words hurled with intent


strange is the way of God in his creation of mankind
size and strength is the deciding factor to all other species
matters very little size and strength in human life
money decides the strength and moneyed are the powerful

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
