Roses are flawed\\k.s

Roses are flawed.

Violets are blemished.

The people I loved and cared for,

Are the one that actually vanished.

Wake me up\\k.s

Wake me up, when we’re done.

No longer in this war that we earlier begun.

Wake me up, as this gets over.

No one bitter; just love leftover.

Wake me up, as soon as we progress.

When we get up, get over this mess.

Wake me up, as we finish it for ever.

Even if we die in attempts to endeavour.

Wake me up, when I no longer see them dead.

All good, as we move ahead.

Wake me up, when everythin’s alright.

Back in shape, as we give up the fight.

Wake me up, as my kid arrives.

My wife no longer praying that I survive.

Wake me up, when we finally act sane.

Not the monsters, that suck on brains.

Wake me up, when everyone’s fine.

Celebrating the win, chucking on wine.

Wake me up, when we’re no longer in pain.

As the war, dies again.

Wake me up, when we all end up alive.

As through the situation, we soon contrive.

Wake me up, as we unite.

And if we reach back our homes tonight.

Just in case you’re having a bad day \\k.s

Just in case you’re having a bad day (or perhaps think so) think of:-

  1. A woman who just had a miscarriage and is feeling suicidial. Think how she must be feeling.
  2. A bride whose bridegroom didn’t turn up on the wedding day. Can there be anything worse?
  3. A little boy who lost his grandparents this morning.
  4. A little girl who just lost her parents in an accident.
  5. An old woman who lost her young son who’s in the army.
  6. A toddler whose dog just took it’s last breaths.
  7. A beggar who died in an accident leaving behind a starving family on the street.
  8. A teenager who had to slit her/his wrist due to peer pressure/rape/ragging/pressure from elders.
  9. A father who witnessed his little daughter fracture her foot.
  10. A mother who’s son lost his control over the arm due to a bullet shot.
  11. A man who got crippled for life due to someone else’s (doctors’) fault/carelessness.
  12. A woman who just lost her eye sight due to a serious illness.

    Just think of such scenarios and ponder over. Do you think your plight is worse than theirs? Don’t you think that their plight makes yours look insignificant now?

    There’s so much to thank for. So many things to smile about. But all we do is make our materialistic self cry over a mere thing. Consider a beggar now, who just begs all day, but doesn’t get enough bread to fill his and his family’s empty stomachs. And here we are….complaining for not getting enough cheese on our pizza or enough meatballs in noodles. Instead of donating a proportion of our meal to the beggar, we actually go about weeping over it not being enough.

    Whenever you get these thoughts just take a step back and wonder whether you’re actually having a bad day. Appreciate when you must and thank when you should. And the most important thing … Stop Complaining.Once you do you’ll realize that it wasn’t a bad day at all. All that makes a day ‘bad’ is simply your attitude. Change your attitude into gratitude.

    And you will never have a bad day again. ☺
