Don'T Be A Toad And Elephant! - Poem by Ramesh T A

Wrong understanding based on opinions of unqualified ones
Mislead one to take wrong decision quick to spoil all matters!
Then crying over spoiled milk will serve no purpose. unless
One realizes one's mistake and settles with the wise forever!

Life is not a game or dance or gamble or a movie we see....,
Where things happen quick and all come to climax for a fast
Ending quite surprising to all against all their speculations...
And so, all things should be decided with patience and wisdom!

Due to fast wrong notions, many lose a very good settled life
And suffer lifelong not able to regain the lost paradise again
Which is the making of misunderstanding and wrong decision
One has made like the elephant strewing on itself sand ever..!

Talking about personal matters with outsiders is like the toad
That shows its location by its own crackle in the field or anywhere
For the snake to identify and swallow it sans difficulty indeed.
This is due to opinions one seeks from outsiders for one's life....!
