Flowers Born to Blush unseen!

Flowers 6

A tribute to a wise old gentleman who gave me this elegy with a very deep meaning, long time ago. I was very young then, he said I will understand what it meant later on, and by the time I understood it’s meaning he is long gone. I remember him with Gratitude ❤

“Full many a gem of
Purest ray serene

The dark unfathom’d caves of
Ocean bear:

Full many a flower is
Born to blush unseen,

And waste its sweetness
On the desert air.”

-Thomas Gray-

Balance!

Balance 3

Life is always
A balance
No matter what.

Good and bad
Happy and sad
Rich and poor
Good health or not.

The moment
Our lives
Goes out of balance
Nature puts it back again.

As nature is always
In balance
So how else can we
Live on mother earth?

As we too are
Part of mother earth
We need to be in balance
At all times.

The moment
We go against
Life pushes us
Back again.

Not knowing
The rules of life
Will bring hard
Lessons to us all!

The Wrath of God!

God 6

We have a religion
To know
What is right.

To be
Truthful and honest
To be kind and
Compassionate.

The religions
Teach us
The laws of
The Universe.

That to
Abide by them
Is the correct way
To live.

Being unjust
And harming others
Is going against
The laws of the Universe.

Which does not
Bring Blessings our way
But
The Wrath of God.

The heavens open up and
The powers of
The God is revealed.

He shows his strength
To put things right
To those who
Have been harmed.

To bring back
Righteousness and Justice
And peace to
The world!

Time!

Eye 8

A time to work
A time to play
A time to rest
And sleep!

We need to know
The value of time
As time gone by
Is lost forever!

Time does not
Stop for anyone.

Even though
Sometimes we stop
The clock ticks on
Without a stop.

Moments pass
Days go by
Months and Years
Becomes the past!

Time is precious
So make
The most of it.

Not too slow
And not too fast.
Not behind
Or running against!

Keeping to the beat
At all times!

Is the way that
Leads to a
Happy Life!

Moving On!

Cover 5a

Today
I finally,
Closed the door.

To endless heartache
And pain.

Letting go
Is also painful.
From those whom you,
Deeply care.

But,
There comes,a breaking point,
Where your heart
Can take no more.

If all you get,
Is endless pain,
What else,
Can you do?

If you had to,
Face the same thing,
What do you think,
You would do?
