The 'Monster' from within.

Men may come and men may go, But I go on forever. 

So many people come into your life, you wouldnt even know. Honestly. Is there anyone who knows all the people that have been a part of your life? No. Duh. Often we forget that even the people who play least importance in our life are actually a part of it. From our house help to your van driver everyone is a part of that bubble we live in called life. :) But no one notices. Why? Because they don't give you material gifts right? And because you pay them. They work for you. But what if they didnt? Im often shocked at how humans can be so ungrateful for things you do for them. And i'm even more shocked to know the statistics pointing out that our overall literacy rate is only like a 65% and more literacy is amongst men than woman! (2001 Census) This also goes on to prove that besides all the developments we're making technologically we still tend to remain backward in our ideals. Why shouldn't a female be educated just as much as a man is? Why? Are we inferior?! No. 

Talking about all this just makes me realize what a cruel world we live in. Sometimes I fear that I may start liking unrealistic worlds more than what our real world is! Though there is no harm in it to a certain extent. But nowadays Ive started looking and understanding things differently. Ive begun seeing things with a different and more optimistic perspective. :) And I thank my ... *well let that be a secret* ;) 

Coming to the poem. Yes, Ive begun writing poetry after a long time. :) Here's one on cruelty of humans. I've written down an explanation but putting that up would spoil the whole 'how each one perceives' this. 

Inhuman Existence.

Peeping through that looking glass
Is that my plant?
What cruel thing could do such an evil deed
Oh tell me Lord, so I can put an end to all this knot

Is that a cat?
Now I can finally fix it
A poisonous trap will do the deal
But will my sins be forgiven?

The morning shines but not as bright
As if it mourns the death of a cat
Guilt burns the head of a killer
As the soul remains to haunt the demon...

*I'm giving myself a new challenge. - Poem a Day. :) Basically Im gonna post one poem each day so that I stop being lazy to blog and actually do something. :) You'll can take up the challenge too if you want. :) OPEN CHALLENGE. =D

*The title's talking about humans who pretend to be sweet things outside but are monsters from within. :P I just wish that the world could be a place full of good humans. From within. :)

Till Next time.

  1. Very honest. I cannot remember how long its been since a write that struck a chord of any kind. This one echoes so wonderfully.

    I can see where you're coming from, and where you stand when you conjure these thoughts.

    Poem a day sounds good I hope you find the inspiration. :)

  2. The poem was vry nice.
    A hidden meaning it has. Well written.


  3. The honesty shows starkly. Likewise, I like to see everything with an optimistic perspective unless there be no choice whatsoever!
    A poem a day sounds like an interesting challenge. I would certainly not take up something like that for it takes time to be inspired to write! But all the best with that to you. :)

  4. omg..REALLY..? men are more literate than most women? i dont know that!

  5. @Cinderella: thanks!! :) hahah im glad and really happy for all thsoe things you said :) and yes its just so that I write more often and tend not to be lazy. Everyday its practically not possible considering time. :P

  6. @D2: Thank you so much. I only took it to motivate me to write more often!
