Ponder On -

Rating: 5.0
When you are hurt by people,
Think about your tongue,
Getting hurt by your own teeth.

If you find your parents opposing you,
Think about the soul asking you not to do,
And your body says go ahead.

If you're ill your body cries with pain,
Think about the burning candles,
Plummeting yet giving light.

When you can't see the logic around you,
Think about the monkey,
Watching two guys playing the chess.

When I can't see the logic in me, think of playing chess, then I will find the logic in reading poetry. Great poem to ponder on so many things. Bravo, Asim Sir!

I imagine if we all bit down hard on our tongue before we said something hurtful, the monkey would let us win a game or two!
