Take it easy

Am I a fool?
Or I am fooling you all
That I doubt your skills
Being born human beings
And behaving like monkeys
In thoughts and deeds after all
How gay and merry
You feel while going up the hill
What anguish you carry
While coming down the hill
Yet pleasantries it fills
Up and down, back and forth
Life a seesaw game with the lead
Changing hands many times
See how you are loaded with explosives
And may explode any time
While coming in contact with bickering
Forgetting facts and happenings
And focusing on storm of thoughts
Seem to be always blowing
Resulting in stress, strain and calming
And now I could see a bomb exploding
Injuring a lot of people before you and all
Oh no, it’s a lie- take it easy
For today is 1st April
Take break and throw pranks
Marking the beginning of spring
Around the world
A time for lighthearted pranking……..

    Yes, at times we have to take life light.... All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy... Let us welcome spring with pranks and thanks! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,

The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
